3.0 out of 5 stars Controls are very... bad., October 26, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Duke Nukem 3D Android (App)
Yeah. Bad. When looking around, on numerous occasions, the screen will jump in slightly in a direction when you take your finger off, making targeting enemies very difficult. On top of that, the actual fire button is very small, and requires you to have pinpoint precision. If you don't hit it dead on, then you touch the background and either do nothing or make the camera move. Sure you have eyes and you can look to make sure you're hitting it - but your target is also a moving one in most cases, and taking your eyes off it is a sure way to miss or die.

The gameplay of this port is exactly the same as it was on the PC and as it was on the X-box live arcade. That is, move around, aim, shoot. There are no extra weapons or bonuses when you buy it and therefor the only reason to have it is to play duke nukem either on the go, on the can, or if you're too lazy to turn on your PC or Xbox, in bed.

It's not a bad investment especially if you like classic shooters and for $0.99 pricetag it's practically a steal compared to the $10.00 price (800 Microsoft Points) on the 360 and the range of $257.50 virtual mugging that a new copy of the original PC Classic sometimes goes for - which I might mention won't run on modern computers without a special emulation program.

However, if you want more - the Xbox 360 version does include special downloads such as themes and picture packs. It also includes the 4th episode - The Birth, that only came with the Atomic Edition of the original game whereas the kindle does not.
