Duke Nukem Forever Review

       I anxiously waited to play this game when I realized another Duke Nukem game was coming out. I  previously played  the original Atomic Duke Nukem 3d when it was on DOS. I thought the characters were good, and I loved the weapons. I mostly loved the attitude, and the funny things Duke says.
       
        I just started playing Duke Nukem Forever a few days ago, and  I love it now more then I did the last one..This time the aliens are back impregnating women, and now it is up to Duke to stop them. From the aliens, to the guns, and everything in between. The critics however are being too brutal to the game. They do not like the graphics, okay the graphics are not as good as other games. The environment is 3D not 2D, and it looks more real. The graphics engine used made the game more spectacular. Duke Nukem 3d did not have good graphics back then either it was pixilated, so it is damn good compared to now.

       The game is a like a fun ride to go on, and there in nonstop action. The character is a smartass, and it is very fun to use the very weapons that made the original awesome. I love the game, and I will play it over and over again. It is that great of a game. The people who say otherwise as Duke Nukem would say, "Come get some." with lines like that the game is funny, entertaining, and too awesome to stop playing. Play it, and you will see how cool it really is. I even got my boyfriends opinion on it. This is what he said about the game, "The game took elements from the 3d game years ago, and the fun of interacting with the environment like peeing or drinking a beer even small things like drawing on a dry erase board. The game is very funny I think just blasting away at the enemies is still a fun Duke Nukem thing. I think this is what fans of the franchise were dreaming of. Newbies to the Duke Nukem games just need to play with an open mind, and then they may see this game for what it truly is. A really good dream of a shooter  as the Duke would say."
      
       There you go a fully interactive environment  makes the game even more wildly entertaining. Like sticking a rat in the microwave, and drinking, smoking, and the good thing is you can get more points for interacting in the form of points toward his ego. The ego recharges over time instead of using health packs. There are also various puzzles placed throughout the game like riding around on a car when your shrunk down to a ant. Places such as a strip club, a burger joint, a casino, and many more places that makes the game entertaining. The game is just amazing which is why I think the reviews Duke Nukem got were unfair, and it is now up to you to decide whether to get the game or not.
