The long delayed sequel to Duke nukem 3D. It was lost in development for over 12 years but when it finally came out it essentially killed the Duke Nukem franchise.
It seems very unlikely that anyone other then hardcore Duke Nukem fans will take much pleasure in this mess of a game and even then only for the nostalgia value of it.
It almost feels like Gearbox, the game company that obtained the rights and "finished" the game, went back threw out all 12 years of previous work and slapped together a 2-bit halo knockoff to rip off the old fanbase and ruin Duke for the new fanbase.
Featuring filler content, platforming puzzles, and crappy game mechanics this is truly a complete mess. It also crossed the very big line between dirty humor and stupid humor more times then I can count. Between the rape jokes and the shit throw (i kid you not it's really in there) it's just not worth the time to play, not to mention the load times are awful even on a high end gaming PC.
They somehow managed to make it to sexist even for Duke, even for DUKE. I didn't even know that was possible.
Another Duke Nukem game has been announced by gearbox, hopefully it will be a masterpiece that saves the franchise but after this god awful performance it's doubtful
Duke and gamer on Duke nukem forever
