Duke Nukem Forever
Duke Nukem Forever is the game everyone had been waiting for for years. The king is back? Well… Gearbox created yet another fast, dynamic shooter. In Duke Nukem Forever, as in all the previous Duke Nukem games, we have to fight hordes of aliens. We will meet many old enemies, but among the aliens there are many new types to kill. There have also been implemented many kinds of bosses awaiting us in dangerous places. Battles with them are one of the best things about the game, they are quite original and interesting, with funny fatalities to perform. During the game we visit extremely differentiated locations. We explore a city, with all its interesting buildings and streets, but we also visit the nature in form of canyons and desserts. There are also factories and industrial regions.
Generally, Duke Nukem’s world is highly differentiated and fun to explore. Usually, we walk, but there are also moments when we can ever a vehicle and drive sound the locations. To bring some variety, the developers have also implements short episodes during which Duke has to defend himself from waves of incoming enemies, using big, stationary guns and cannons. Duke, being a true badass, does not have a life bar, he has an ego bar. It suits him well. The whole system is based on the principle that Duke cannot be physically hurt by anybody, only his pride can be hurt. Duke is equipped with a whole arsenal of weapons.
He has weapons old and new, among which can be found the cult ones like Devastator, Pipe Bombs and Shrink Ray. An interesting novelty is sniper rifle, with a first time appearance in the Duke Nukem series. Thanks to the typical atmosphere of the game, its use often ends with limbs flying and blood splashed everywhere. There is a lot of interaction possibilities. The game is full of crude humor and Duke can engage into various stupid, immature ways that some will find funny and some, pathetic.
