    Marvellous adventure fps.

    Rated on March 09, 2012 by jimbow4

    I used to play Duke 3D a lot. So when the first reviews of this game came I was a bit hesitant of what has happened to Duke. Well, I bought the game when I found it from a bargain bin. And playing it ...

    If you want a great creative, lengthy, fun FPS campaign with great humor and rock solid gameplay, always bet on Duke.

    Duke Nukem Forever is the best single-player FPS campaign since Half-Life 2 hit in 2004, and the multiplayer is fun stuff as well. Triumphant game. Duke Nukem Forever had the longest development ti...

    Freakin Awesome. Ignore the bad reviews.

    Rated on January 09, 2013 by 1337OldMan

    i wonder if the bad reviews come from religous or family-minded folk. This game is full of testosterone-packed, crude, sinful humor. Women, Churchy folk, and family-type would be offended. This is ...

    If you are a Duke fan, it feels good to finally be able to put the shades on and save the world all over again.

    Upon its release in 1996 on PCs, Duke Nukem 3D was an influential first person shooter, combining interactive game environments with its unique mix of enemies and outrageous weapons, and injecting per...

    In my opinion this game was great and I don't get the hate this game gets

    for years I've heard of this and you already know why. When I saw the reviews I was shocked, so I avoided it for several months. I sawed razorfist's and lgr reviews on the game, so I decided why not a...

    I loved the Duke back in the old days - this game would not even be a decent add-on pack for the original.

    Rated on June 10, 2011 by Scritty

    8 hours playing, the last 4 of which is because I was determined to get some value for my £30 on Steam last night. I love the Duke, and this game has him - being the Duke, and that's the one good thi...

    After so many years, the expectations are not met, not even slightly.

    Rated on June 10, 2011 by LaStOfThE

    Duke Nukem, the badass action hero that saved the world is back. The president told Duke at some point, "you are a relic from another era" and boy, was he right. The short version: the game is wea...

    Rated on June 11, 2011 by jedimaster3000

    Duke Nukem Forever masterfully combines pure shoot-em-up fun with intelligent and thought provoking puzzles to create one of the best first person shooters ever created. It's been a while since i'v...

    Well.... At least we got it.

    Rated on June 10, 2011 by Atari_7200

    After seeing the trailer, a few months back I was already disappointed. But I've taught myself not to completely judge a product by it's advertisement. I sat down and expected a short, mediocre, pew p...

    Yes. Duke Nukem. One of the most badass gaming heroes of all time. But now he had got a pie thrown at his face with this new game. The game is really repetitive and it seems you are doing the same ...
