PushSquare: "Duke Nukem Forever is not the best first-person shooter you’ll play this year. Our lengthy hands-on demo proves as much. As a shooter, Forever feels distinctly (and possibly unintentionally) throw-back. But for a game that’s been in development since dinosaurs walked the Earth, it’s probably to be expected. And yet while Duke Nukem does feel decidedly old-school, the game’s got an undeniable charm that’s slowly starting to win us over."
