"There are two things I like in this world, chewing gum & kicking ***. And I'm all out of gum."
-Duke Nukem, 1996, while killing aliens that stole his chicks.
Duke Nukem had to be one of, if not the best, FPS out on PC during it's time. Made in 1996 by 3D Realms, DN3D provided me with hours and hours of entertainment. I still can't finish it without using the cheats. The weapons are extremely destructive, and make the game worthwhile. The game is a little "mature" at times, but there is a parental lock to keep the kiddos from all of that jazz. This is the third DN game in the series.
Basically Duke Nukem is a no nonsense (unless he is providing the nonsense) action hero, who gets his hands on some artillery when all of his "chicks" are captured by aliens. The only thing is that there is no sniper rifle, so you’re going to have to get your hands dirty. The game doesn't exactly steer away from drugs as a way to increase your speed is to use steroids. Not fast running boots with wings on them like in some other games. Their are cardboard pornographic images in this game as well. Just put the parental lock on if you don't enjoy looking at a dancing splodge of paint on your screen. There is swearing, etc, but I guess, when you think about, it makes the game more realistic.
The gameplay relies heavily on what weapons you have. Basically a pistol might take 3 shots to kill one type of alien, but a shotgun will take two. This is the same with every other alien of the same “species” throughout the game. Eg a humanoid alien with a red jacket might take 8 shots to kill with a shotgun, so all of that kind of alien will take 8 shots to kill with a shotgun. The levels are great and complex. There seems to be a never ending choice. You can also choose one of three stages to start off in. It’s interesting because you can finish the game by just choosing the last stage. The gameplay is definitely a big up for the game.
The graphics are sub-par by today's standards, but back then they were quite good. Unlike some other games, when you go back and play DN3D you notice how bad the graphics really are by today's standards. The detail on the aliens is quite good though. Your weapons look extremely detailed also. Don't let the fuzzy graphics put you off, DN is a great game.
The sound is another fantastic feature of the game. Unfortunately my sound doesn't work, but none of you should experience that problem. The sound your enemies make when you blow the cornflakes out of their brains is quite chilling (in a humourous sort of way). The music is quite fitting, and Duke pulls a few good one liners through the course of the game.
The replay value is another pro of the game. It’s always fun to play through again. And with all the different difficulties, the game can be progressed through several times.
The game relies heavily upon its comedy impact and its gameplay factors. Take some time to get used to the game and you should enjoy it. The only thing that might scratch the surface of all these pros, is that there is no multiplayer. That might be a bit harsh though. For such an immoral game, it provides entertainment, to say the least. My special challenge, to you is this:
Find a copy of DN3D, and play it through to the end. Gameplay never really changes over time, whereas graphics do. Play the game and see if the great gameplay can keep you addicted, even with better looking games as far as graphics are concerned.
-Funny one liners
-The graphics seem to get worse every time a new game comes out
-The game might be a little “hardcore” for younger players
-Maybe a multiplayer would have helped
