    This game has everything, action, comedy and flawless level design!

    I don't know where to begin, if you are a younger FPS fan, you need to hop onto ebay and give this game the props that it deserves! It was the first game I ever played where bullets left holes, where taking a pee gave yo... Read Full Review

    Great old-school ...

    I played this game when I was 6 years old, and out of the fact it scared me a bit, I found it a great game. The 3D of the game is much better then newer games like Tactical ops (2002 - empty chambers and angular hills). ... Read Full Review

    Frankly one of the most important games of our time.

    Why is it one of the most important games? Duke let us know that it wasn't all run and gun. It was run and gun and then talk a lot of trash. Duke was the first to make us care about the character we were playing. Duk... Read Full Review

    One of the first games I ever played!

    I was six years when I first played DN 3D. I thought it was one of the best games ever made. I still think that. The gameplay is like every FPS-shooter, but it's still great. It plays like an old-school FPS. The g... Read Full Review
