"Avoid at all costs"
1 stars"

I was really looking forward to this game, because I grew up on Duke Nukem and when this game was announced I was so happy! But then 12 years later and we get this… this awful, buggy, dated game. I'm expecting that when I finish the campaign of this game instead of credits a message will come up saying “This was a joke and the real Duke Nukem Forever will be in-stores soon!” well at least that's what I'm hoping for, because this game is not worth the money.

"Just awful"
1 stars"

Fans have been waiting 12 years for DNF and have been hoping that it will be well worth it. If you fall in to this camp, you will be sorely disappointed.

The finished product feels like it was made in 2005 and even then they only spent a couple of months on it. The whole game feels dated beyond belief – the graphics are just plain ugly. Doom 3 looks better. Level design/weapon­s/soundtrack/cha­racters are all entirely forgettable, dialogue utterly sucks and not enough that it's funny but that every single line falls flat. This is the Epic Movie of games and it's shocking that they actually released something so bad.

"Negative criticism not justified."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is fun, true Duke fans will enjoy the old Dukeisms and the attitude of the game, familiar enemies and weapons. The bonus of some driving levels add something different.

There is a reasonably easy 1000G up for grabs in the X360 version of the game if that interests you, 1205G if you purchase The Doctor Who Cloned Me DLC, and no multiplayer achievements. A couple of mini games can be a bit of a grind if you are going for achievements but these are not as bad as some other games.

At least two playthroughs are required if you are after all the gamer score as the insane difficulty doesn't unlock until one playthrough on any level is completed. There can be a couple of challenging boss fights on insane but nothing that can't be beaten with the right methods.

The multiplayer levels add some extra entertainment as long as you get good timing to find others online of course.

Overall if you are a Duke fan from way back, or you are open to Dukes quirks and attitude this game is well worth playing. Graphics and sound are pretty good, no noticable slow downs or glitches when I played.

Just a note for those installing the game on the X360 hard drive, you may need to sign out of any profiles for the install to work.

Put on your shades and prepare to step into the boots of Duke Nukem, whose legend has reached epic proportions in the years since his last adventure. The alien hordes are invading and only Duke can save the world. Pig cops, alien shrink rays and enormous alien bosses can’t stop our hero from accomplishing his one and only goal: to save the world, save the babes and to be a bad-ass while doing it. The King arrives with an arsenal of over-the-top weapons, non-stop action, and unprecedented levels of interactivity. Duke Nukem was and will forever be immortalized in gaming history; this is his legend.

  • Return of the King of All Shooters: He’s back, baby! The King of All Shooters returns in an explosive and action packed shooter that puts pedal to the metal and tongue firmly in cheek, among other places. Kick ass from the Vegas Strip to the Hoover Dam all while serenading your ears with your favorite Duke-isms.
  • Interact With the World, the Duke Way: Experience a fully interactive and immersive look into Duke’s world. Shoot hoops, lift weights, read adult magazines, draw crude messages on white boards or ogle one of the many beautiful women that populate Duke’s life; that is if you can pull yourself away long enough from kicking ass and taking names.
  • Kick-Ass Arsenal Puts the F-U Into Fun: Obliterate enemies in style while giving them the Duke Nukem one finger salute. Prepare to shoot enemies in the face with a bad-ass assortment of shotguns, RPGs, pipe bombs and other trademark Duke Nukem tools of destruction. That’s going to leave a mess!
