IGN writes: "When Duke Nukem 3D released in 1996 gaming had yet to be inundated with risqué title after risqué title. Back then, Duke was the only game in town that had mothers ripping cords out of walls at the sight of the game's titular character handing a "professional dancer" a wad of ones to flaunt her "assets" at the camera.
Now that sort of activity is commonplace in a world of videogames where you can have sex with prostitutes and then ruthlessly slaughter them curbside. Still, Duke Nukem 3D was home to plenty of solid, innovative gameplay mechanics that include being the first FPS game to deliver a jetpack and the ability to swim. Now the game from 3D Realms is landing on Xbox Live Arcade, complete with new multiplayer features and that same great single-player campaign that everyone remembers so fondly."
