    Forever a disappointment

    No game has proven to be a more bloated mess than Duke Nukem Forever until it came out (and Anthem). Duke Nukem Forever sucks so much! But at least it doesn't blow...Unlike these babes am I right?! Duke Nukem has been su... Read Full Review

    A fair game I must say it is. Nothing special here.

    So much criticism has been addressed to this game, yet I got it for just one buck on Humble Bundle. Therefore I played it. And I am not sorry for it. All right, it has its letdowns. It hasn't got that clear graphics and ... Read Full Review

    Good history, good play, funny...

    I don't understand so bad rating, for me it's a good game. I start to play it, and I think I will going to end it. The bad is the sound it isn't 5.1 surround (only with a special sound card) The graphics are not bad. Eas... Read Full Review

    At first I was disgusted, but then I was just bored.

    I have never played a Duke Nukem game before DN:F. I was never that into PC gaming/shooters in my teens so I never experienced that end of things and have no nostalgia for it. The only experience I had had before DN:F wa... Read Full Review

    Painfully dated in every way, DN: Forever's nostalgia factor can't hide the fact this game arrived too little, too late.

    Announced on April 28, 1997, Duke had been thrown around from one developer to another through various engines and iterations, being canceled and revived more than your favorite comic book superhero. All but dead after 3... Read Full Review

    It took forever to develop, and the result was a very dated game.

    Duke Nukem Forever is a sequel to Duke Nukem 3D which was released in 1996. Soon after, 3D Realms and Triptych Games started development on Forever, and was later finished by Gearbox Software and Piranha Games; a whole 1... Read Full Review

    A Bad But Fun Game

    Yes this game is not the best in terms of quality, but if you have a good sense of humor, this game is a blast to play. You will be rolling on the floor laughing and gasping for air. If you want a game that is just flat ... Read Full Review

    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 and buy it. Story:... Read Full Review
