Gamer Euphoria: Duke Nukem Forever Review (PS3/360)

The video games industry’s biggest joke has finally met its punch line. After over ten years in the making Duke Nukem Forever never truly stood a chance of making the impact it could have once made, but how does it stand up into today’s hyper polished first person shooter market?.

The story is paper thin with the Aliens coming back to earth to steal Earth’s women, this of course angers Duke and thus begins his quest to kick ass and chew bubble gum. People looking for in-depth story and character development will be instantly disappointed (and only have themselves to blame to be fair) with Duke only serving as one liner machine and the surrounding cast only offering the odd sentence or two before never being seen again. It’s unfair to expect a Duke Nukem title to be packing an epic story but a little more effort would have been nice to glue things together a little better than what’s on display in the final product. The single player takes Duke through a small, if not a little generic, set of locations such as a Vegas Casino and Hoover dam. Most of the locations lack any real detail and unfortunately end up be rather similar if not for the odd neon light. By the time the single player experience is half way through the locations do feel rather monotonous to play through and rather uninspired. (Duke Nukem Forever, PS3, Xbox 360) 3/5
