Problem 1, is the loading it takes forever, every 2-5 minutes of game time you will have to load a new part of the same level, and it just make you want to quit, i went to the bathroom and came back and it was still loading, it took me 3 days to pass the game on easy mode, problem 2, enemy on easy level they can still kill you very fast, with a few shots you will spend a lot of time running for cover because your health level is so low and you have to wait for regeneration, the enemy is almost impossible to kill because they move all over the place, the bosses are more easy to kill, problem 3, you will constantly run out of ammo all the time, on every level, problem 4, the shrink levels when you are shrunk and have to jump on boxes and go into the wall is pointless, this will take up all your time no action whatsoever, when all you want to do is shoot aliens, problem 5, the duke night vision sucks, and the level Hive you will spend almost the entire level in the dark, using the night vision, and there is nothing entertaining about games when you force to use night vision the whole level. multiplayer is ok but you have to unlock and buy everything just like black ops, I recommend renting this game and buying the first duke nukem from 1996 because that is more entertaining.

How this game is getting even mediocre reviews is beyond me. This coming from a lifelong Duke fan.
The Bad: Boring stupid puzzles everywhere. Tedious driving sections with even more tedious miniature sections. The game's long length would of been a good thing had it been fun. Shooting is boring and bleh. Graphics are original Xbox quality (think Chronicles of Riddick). Funny crude humor and dialog moments (what you're essentially playing the game for) are way too far and few. There's not much gore, not much boobs, and not nearly enough action.
The Good: You didn't waste $60 on it. The comedy is really funny 10 year old stupid humor. Um... That's really it.
I have played games with bad storylines before and well Duke Nukem has an entertaining storyline but the real problem I had was the controlls. How can I play a game where the controls don't work or the game is supposed to be built around those controls. One of the missions that I got stuck on was the Lady Killer Level, first off I understand that the game roots back to the old days, fine no problem but when I am in a room full of charging pigs I expect my shotgun to blow them away. Not the case at all, either I shot them point blank and missed or it stuned them and they kept on charging. If you shoot something point blank its supposed to kill them not miss them, happened the whole time in the game, the load times were to long lost my patience waiting for the game to load, especially when I died from supposedly not shooting one of these hogs, I don't understand why people are giving high ratings if the controls were so bad. Thank goodness for gamefly. WARNING : PLAY AT YOUR OWN RISK...CHANCES ARE I MAY BE WRONG!!!!! But I returned the game after 3 hours.
