well heres the thing. what they tried to do with the game is pretty cool. they brought back dukes classic style and attitude. he gets his woman and kicks booty. but they took so long to make it i believe they expected it to come out on ps2 but it took longer than expected so they had to upgrade graphics to ps3 and didnt get to change much of the game so it came out half way decent. but if you are a big fan of duke nukem then play it. if not then dont. its a simple as that
I was disappointed in the demo, but I decided to rent it still and I'm glad I did. While it isn't anywhere near the level of awesomeness I was hoping for after all these years, it's still Duke. It has some boobies and lots of immature toilet humor, and I'm a fan of both those things.
The things that suck the most about the game are the long loading times really punish you for dying because you gotta sit through them each time, a couple of times the game froze on me, and also the multiplayer is just garbage. I played Duke Nukem 3D online on the Sega Saturn (and XBLA), and played Duke Nukem 64 and Duke Nukem Zero Hour split-screen a lot back in the day and they were all fun, but I just can't get into the multiplayer on this one. One minor complaint is the pool table and pinball mini-games. The physics on them are pretty bad, and I can't figure out why they bothered to include them but it doesn't matter and probably isn't even worth mentioning because nobody will be spending much time on them.

Duke Nukem wasn't as bad as everyone making it seem, however it's not the best shooter neither. it's one of those games you just have to play to see how you feel about it. i wouldn't spend full price for a game thats ......well half.
