Duke Nukem

So many of you have been asking for this game review, so here it is! And you can bet that everything that you wanted for christmas, is in here. From monster trucks and beer to strip clubs, naked slime chicks hanging from the ceiling while being totured and of course your favourite; walls that have slappable tits on. Really, what else could you want?

Now this whole game is based on a superhero figure that looks like he's been taken right from the 1980s and shoved in a modern video game. With his huge muscles comes an Ego bar, which is exactly the same as a health bar. It can be increased or replenished by standing infront of mirrors, playing video games of yourself and working out. Seems abit odd doesn't it?

This whole game is really a mash up of how first person shooters have developed over the years, throwing in every mechanic they can find and hoping that it could turn out as a shiny new toy, but in all honesty it isn't. It seems as original, as peeing into a urinal is a good gameplay idea, which by the way is not, as shown in the game.

If you are 12 or still find breasts, turds, throwing turds at walls or drawing penis' on a whiteboard funny then go ahead and buy this. You sure won't be disappointed. Or on the other hand if you are mature and like original ideas and good gameplay and a decent story then i'm afraid that this game won't live up to it's name. However the good news is that this game still reminds a joke!

  3. Yeah, duke nukem has built up all this hype from its original games, but idk if it can carry its glory from its past days to make this new one seem better.

  14. LOL I've seen the gameplay of it and it incorporates LOTS and I mean LOTS of humor in it.

    But not that work-safe with those adult stuff, I must say.

    Followed...

  16. Your review is exactly what I had worried about. A video game with a lot of cartoon boobs and poop jokes was amazing when I was 13 years old. Not sure if it will have the same appeal now though. I'd rather play a game with a good store and fun game play.

  23. Should I wait 11 years for another sequel?

  24. HAHAHAH! I only played the first one for a small portion of time. But I'll proabably get this one just for a few days worth of laughs. Looks like they put some effort into making it, might as well give it a try!
