How was this :The Game that Brought the Fame?
31 July 2002 | by (Cheltenham, England) – See all my reviews

There was no way in the world that this game could become successful! Even at the time the graphics where nothing new, after Duke 1 and 2: the story line was nothing new, within months of it's release Jedi Knights and Quake 2s started cropping up but all of these latter games had one ingredient missing: they didn't have Duke. The ultra violent, blonde haired, muscle bound he-man with a big gun was back and this time he had a mouth like a trash can and big breasted woman throwing themselves at The Man. Duke Nukem appeals to many people because his goal wasn't to save the galaxy as a whole, it was to score with babes! And the next time you get mad because you're blown away in DukeMatch remember these words of advise: Guns are cool, bones heal and chicks dig scars.
