If your a real gamer (not a casual call of duty player) and like the old schooler games this is for you. As a fan of the original i loved this game through and through, its challenging and most levels arent that linear. Mostly everything is over the top and you gotta unload on aliens to kill them, no one hitter kills like every fps out there. There are puzzles and thats why most people dont like this game and the enemies have an AI so thats also why some people dont like this game. Basically you just run around, everything is pretty much interactable, tons of boobies and adult manly humor that only us men(that arent whipped lol) can appreciate. Sure this games graphics arent top notch but that doesnt make the game, the gameplay, story, and design does. This game is fun in its entirety the way its suppose to be, not a high class AAA title that looks gorgeous and boring.

When Duke Nukem Forever hit the shelves, I like many others, was chomping at the bit to get this title in my system as soon as I could! I always liked the franchise and was looking forward to continuing the great humor and story that is unique to Duke Nukem. When the first wave of reviews hit I was iffy on whether to actually pick this up or not and so I waited for Gamefly. I have to say the critics and most reviews that I've seen are entirely off base. This game is different and stands apart from the sea of generic shooters that comprise the market today and I love it for bringing some fresh air to the genre! Duke spouts crude humor, shoots from the hip and generally rocks his make believe world with epic hilarity! Now this game is obviously not for younger audiences, however more mature people can get buckets of laughs if you can let loose and enjoy the stupid humor. I will also say that I'm glad that a game finally showed a sexual side as opposed to the normal these days. All you usually get are buckets of blood and enough gore to weaken even the strongest of heart and it's such a double standard that more crude forms of humor and sexual innuendo are shoved to the side and seen as dirty and degrading. This game is gritty, silly fun and can be enjoyed by any mature people with a good sense of humor! All in all I say the reviews were dead wrong and I am personally really hoping that this breath of fresh air comes back for another spin and hopefully influences other titles to stand against the tide!
