Heroes Come and Go, But a King Reigns Forever
Did the Alien bastards not learn their lesson the first time? Duke has been on hiatus for some time now, kicking back and franchising himself on the fame he gained from saving Earth from the first invasion. The Aliens have returned to Earth yet again, messing up Duke's sweet routine of dirty leisure habits. The Alien invaders are stealing Earth's women, especially the hot ones! And they drank Duke's beer. This-Won't-Stand. As Duke battles his way through waves of aliens, the once beautiful gambling haven and Duke Nukem franchise chains are crumbling before his eyes. Time to bring the pain
Duke Nukem is one of the biggest and most recognizable brands in gaming history. Irreverent, UN-PC, and uber-Macho, Duke Nukem is the perfect antidote to the overdose of today's clichéd gaming archetypes. The game's cocktail of alien invasion, busty babes, bawdy comedy and big guns never gets old. The highly anticipated Duke Nukem Forever is a celebration of what video games are really about: an out loud good time. The game is huge, with hours and hours of over-the-top single player action, and a range of bodacious multiplayer modes like Duke Match, Capture the Babe and Hail to the king, players can rest assured knowing that the fun will last.

My complaint is with the mechanics of the game play and not the crude humor. It's Duke Nukem after all. If you don't like crude, vulgar, sexist humor (and I do) then you shouldn't buy it to start with! The problem is the poor game play, boring levels, frustrating targeting and unbalanced damage received vs inflicted.
You have to interact with your environment by opening doors, picking up objects and pushing buttons, many times while trying to avoid enemies. Duke has to align precisely with the objects in order to interact. This is tedious when not fighting and deadly when trying to pick up an object to throw at an enemy while it is inflicting damage on you. The targeting on the weapons is difficult to control while in a battle resulting in a lot of wasted ammo. Also, the crosshairs are white and tend to blend into the background making it hard to determine where you are shooting. You can also only carry two weapons, which takes away a lot of the fun of the old game where you could kill enemies in varied ways by switching between the many weapons you carried. You also tend to run out of ammo quickly because you only have two weapons.
Some levels are frustratingly tedious like the RC car level where Duke is shrunk down and drives an RC car. The whole level is spent driving around and trying to figure out where to go with no obvious destination in mind.Read more ›
If you have kids or easy-to-offend family members around, this is not the game to play before they go to bed. Profanity, nudity, and sexual content are present throughout the game, and are even level objectives. Personally, I think it's hilarious and often well-done, but it's not for kids.
Biggest complaint by far, though, is the PAINFULLY long load times for each level, or after getting killed. It's well over a minute to reload to the last save point, which is totally unacceptable. When trying to get through particularly tough levels or bosses, you can spend more time waiting for the thing to load than actually playing.
- It's Duke - Yes, I know, many people won't find Duke's brand of absurdity very entertaining in the current world we now live in, but I still find his crass and raunchy attitude to be very likable. I've noticed a politically correct movement in gaming today. I've noticed politically correct movements infiltrating every kind of entertainment and deeming something they dislike as "offensive." Now, I'm not here to judge morality and what may offend others, but at the same time I know where to draw the line, as it's quite obvious that Duke is meant to be a parody of sorts. He's not meant to offend any group of people, but to offer the same brand of absurdity that he always has, and Duke Nukem Forever delivers on this front. Say what you will, I enjoy Duke. If that makes me immature, politically incorrect, etc., then so be it. Come get some.
- Variety - Variety is the name of the game in Duke Nukem Forever. While it may let some people down who were expecting non-stop shooting, it'll satisfy those looking for a varied experience. I really enjoyed playing as miniature Duke.Read more ›
Sadly, this review won't contain any information that hasn't already been stated ad nauseam by all the other frustrated players who are probably wishing they hadn't bought the game, either. Even so, I figured I would add my 2-star review in the hopes that others will take us seriously when we say YOU SHOULD NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
Let's start with the basics. There's the graphics. It's blatantly obvious (at least to me) that most of the graphics were developed a decade ago, and then were retextured at the last second before final release. Unfortunately, the developers did an abysmal job covering their laziness. In the very first level, all one has to do is walk up to a wall and look at the posters to see the developers' error. Extreme pixelation that becomes blockiness up close? I wouldn't even expect to see that in a game from 5 years ago. I wouldn't even expect to see that on a Wii, which has a fraction of the graphics-rendering power of the XBOX 360. This should not be happening, period. It speaks volumes about the amount of effort that went into this game.
The controls are clunky. They just don't feel right. They lack the kind of smoothness one would hope to see in an FPS. Then there's the slow gameplay in the beginning, and the fact that you find yourself going through the levels with no weapons or enemies to fight for such an amount of time that you will find yourself wondering if you're even playing an FPS. And then there's the weapons...Read more ›
