It had quite a journey being made and most people thought it would never see the light of day and sometimes I wish it didn’t. Don’t get me wrong, I actually like certain things in Duke Nukem Forever, but it isn’t really a “good” game from any standpoint. The graphics are okay, but not really that impressive. The game play is very choppy and sluggish and the story is the only redeeming thing, even though playing a Duke Nukem game for its story is considered a joke. I guess it’s just the feel of playing as the classic bad ass Duke Nukem that kept me entertained throughout, but even that slowly starts to fade away in time and the result is a lackluster game that doesn’t fully deliver."
