Duke Nukem Forever


$59.99 Released June, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Actually real / playable - not just an ongoing joke. Has some original Duke in it. Good number of distinct settings / environments.

The Cons:Long loading times. Doesn't hold up to today's standards - poor controls, level design, enemy AI. Humour is just crude and dumb - not funny like it might have been in the mid 90s.

Duke Nukem Forever is a first-person shooter video game sequel to 1996's Duke Nukem 3D, designed by Gearbox Software for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Fourteen years in the making, gamers once again get to play as Duke Nukem, the musclebound, egotistical, foul-mouthed womanizer who has an uncanny ability to save the day.

With a barrage of new and classic one-liners throughout the game, Duke Nukem Forever continues on the previous title's path of crudely comedic destruction, featuring outlandish settings, vehicle driving, and puzzle solving on top of the familiar first-person shooter action. A new group of minigames allow a break from the game's story progression, including basketball, lifting weights, pinball, pool, air hockey, and slots.
