As a follower of the Duke Nukem franchise for only the last three years (when I first played Duke Nukem 3D), and having played every duke game released prior and after, I have to say Duke Nukem Forever is fantastic.
Graphically, it's not advanced, no. Game-play is far from amazing, sure, sometimes it feels like I'm playing a game from 2001. The story isn't what you come to a Duke game for either, and let's be honest, the humour is dated, only mild enjoyment remains from his jokes.
Yeah, in general, we have a mediocre experience, but when it all comes together, it feels so much more. When you allow yourself to become immersed in the sillyness and absurdity, you'll feel at home again. When it all comes together, it begins to feel like a 7/10 game.

"it doesn't feel like a Duke game"
Why not? The humour is there, the character is there in all his glory. The thing that made Duke 'Duke' is there. Duke Nukem Forever is the same as Duke Nukem Zero Hour, or Manhatten Project. It isn't the same gameplay, but it retains what it needs too, and when you accept the changes, you find an extremely underlying fun experience.
It sure feels like a Duke Nukem Game to me!

Don't judge this game on what you hoped it'd be (the best game ever), judge it on what it is. I definitely consider this to be one of the funnest games I've played of the current 'generation' of games, and a highlight I'll return to in the near future, constantly!

Also; who else had a blast throughout the Duke Burger chapter? I naively didn't shrink the large enemies while I was in shrunk form, leading to an extensively fun battle on the hardest difficulty. The whole kitchen platforming was so fun, too.

I've played it at a friends place for an hour and thought it was pretty fun. Does anyone know how long it is because I dont want to be suckered in for a game that's only like 5 hours long.

It's somewhere around 8-14 hours depending on how efficiently you play it. I went through it in about 11-12 hours. It's an alright game, but they need to work out the technical issues.

Also, don't play the console versions.

This is probably the most unbiased review I've seen yet. If you are still on the fence, watch this. It may help you out.

Nah, I can tell if a game is good from watching gameplay.

Eh, whatever I don't really care. The last I'm gonna say is, as a game in general Duke Nukem Forever is pretty good. But as a Duke Nukem game it's sub par.But there is no need to take my word for it. Because an opinion is an opinion, if you played the game then you probably formed an opinion of it. So good for you. If not then at least rent it and see for yourself how good it is, don't just watch a review, say fuck it, and then quote reviews about why it sucks. It's not worth it. So I'm gonna forget this whole thing and move on to a new game because there are too many Awesome games out there to freak out over just one.

To me, it's not so bad. So instead of blue/yellow/red keycards like what Doom started with and Duke Nukem 3D used, the experience is more directly linear. To me, that's not a big deal. Half Life 2 still did that and it was a great game.

This game is getting way too much hate considering it was on the verge of never even happening multiple times. As a Duke Nukem game, yes, it's a different experience when compared to previous games. That's normal. If it was made to be exactly like Duke Nukem 3D, people still would have complained that they were recycling aspects and not making it anything new. Instead, they went for a different approach, and are still getting whines about it. Bottom line, people were expecting Duke Nukem Forever to be perfect, and that's just not possible. Instead, appreciate it for what it is, a Duke Nukem game killed the 12-year rut and gave us a reliable shooter with plenty of great action moments, gameplay, and plenty of chuckle humor, even if it's not the "perfect" game so many people were expecting. Truthfully, I'm pretty satisfied with it, and I'm happy to see Duke back in action and kicking ass.

The way some people reviewed this game makes me believe they should stop playing video games altogether. The spoiled brat pessimism gets annoying.


Don't pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.
