    Pure Puken = The epitome of FPS stupidity

    This is not the 90's anymore kiddies, I mean developers. You wanna know why Duke and Doom were so popular back then? Because there were no other shooters. So playing the first ever 3d shooter while constantly sprinti... Read Full Review

    Hail to the King baby! No wait the king died long time ago...

    With the development time that DNF has gone through,seeing the game makes one wonder what the development team in 3DR was doing over decade. It's hard to believe There's not much to say that people haven't already said. ... Read Full Review

    Duke Nukem 3D Enhanced.

    Some of us remember Duke Nukem 3D from 1996. For me it was one of the best games I've played in that time. There was so much you could do, except shooting up aliens: going to the toilet, giving money to a stripper so she... Read Full Review

    Too little, too late.

    I wanted to like this game. I really did. I wanted to forgive it's somewhat dated looks because of all it went through to get released. Truth is 3D Realms did not know what they wanted to do with DnF and just seemed to w... Read Full Review

    15 years of hype ends with a "meh", but not without it's moments.

    **************************SLIGHT SPOILERS************************** Duke Nukem Forever has become somewhat of an symbol for vaporware in the past decade or so. Each of the trailers shows off a different theme and en... Read Full Review

    It's classic Duke relived.. and that's the problem.

    Duke Nukem Forever is just like the Duke Nukems of the past unfortunately it's not that improved. Sure you can piss in toilets and have witty lines of manliness like the old Duke, but you don't have much else for flavor... Read Full Review

    Too easy. Short enough not to break your keyboard. Too much hipe for nothing special. Serious Sam was better.

    The game is too easy. You can have a maximum of two guns on you at any given time. Yes, aliens and three titted babes are fiction but we really have to make him look human just by nerfing his stash. (spoiler) You h... Read Full Review

    DNF manages to throw in a few good laughs and some decent set pieces, but it is really showing it's age.

    First off, I never played the other Duke Nukem games, mainly because I was only 6 years old when DN3D came out and was more bust with Lego than computer games at that time, so bear with me. Upon hearing this game was ... Read Full Review
