So, as many of you, I tried the new Duke Nukem this weekend and It was sadly disappointing. I knew the graphic was kinda weak and the game rather short but I was still hopeful. My expectation for this game were high, I'm a fan from back in the day and I have the two game they release for the N64 and the original on Pc.
The game world as change since then and Duke seem to have devolve, you can only take two weapons at the time meaning you gonna cling on that devastator, can't run for too long, no damn jetpack in the game. Most of his oneliner are recycle from older Duke Nukem Title, and speaking or recycling, all the npc look the same. Virtually, Duke Nukem Forever is eco-friendly.
A few FPS hero make cameo in the game, here Isaac from dead space
Duke Nukem used to make a lot of movie reference, They live, Evil dead, Total recall, Commando to name a few, now he talk more about video game, talking about Halo power armor ( you really can't miss this one ) or finding Isaac (from dead space) or talking about Gordon freeman(from half life). I'm not again this, it just seem weird to me sometime, kinda force. But I gotta admit when I was playing the game with a friend, we both laugh every now and then at Duke quote, he is a funny guy.
My plan, half of them hit the monster in the ball the other half get some chicks and I do all the job as usual
Maybe the core of the game is in his Multi player, but they didn't include a split screen mode, only online. Well I haven't play the multi player mode yet and from what I get from the boring boss battle, It's probably not that great either. Except the first and the last one, the boss are more a repetitive chore than a fun challenge.
Damn I'm good
Concluding, I would recommend you to rent this one, you could probably finish it in one weekend, there is not much secret or exploration to do. Just run the straight line until the end. You gonna have fun time but not a much of a challenge.
