Duke Nukem Forever Review

Duke Nukem Forever

Duke Nukem is back, as raunchy as ever.

After a long and storied development process, Duke Nukem Forever, the highly anticipated follow up to the 1996 FPS classic Duke Nukem 3D is now available. The end result is surprising, to say the least. Gearbox Software, having taken over development responsibilities of the game following 3D Realms' downsizing in 2009, made a bold decision - that is, to keep the game as true to 3D Realms' original vision as possible. The decision to keep Duke Nukem Forever true to its roots is simultaneously its greatest asset and greatest liability.

Duke Nukem Forever

The game opens with a brief tribute to its predecessor, pitting our titular hero against a cycloid foe in a battle ripped right out of Duke Nukem 3D. Later revealed to be Duke playing a game based upon his likeness, the camera shifts to reveal two buxom blondes servicing him. In the first of many self-referential nods, one of them asks if the game is any good, to which, Duke cheerily responds: "Yeah, but after twelve f**king years it had better be." Retirement, it would seem, has been good to Duke, as he now resides in the penthouse level of his own casino.

After 12 plus years in development, and playable demos at both PAX Prime last fall, and PAX East this month, anticipation for Duke Nukem Forever is at a fever pitch. Unfortunately, fans of the infamous gum chewing, alien killing, bad ass are going to have to wait just a little while longer. Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software and Executive Producer of Duke Nukem Forever just announced that the game has been pushed back again; this time to June 14th in the United States, and June 10th internationally.

Gearbox had a bit of fun with the announcement; opting for a video, as opposed to the standard press release. In the video, Randy Pitchford was ecstatic because 2K and Gearbox are finally shipping the unshippable game. See the video for yourself here and remember: "Duke never comes early."
