Duke Nukem rocks!!!
8 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is one of my all-time favorite computer games. The game may not be as good as today's 3D shooters like Half-Life and Unreal. This game is still pretty fun to play. This game has everything. Blood, Gore, Destruction, Mayham, and hot women. Everything you want in a video game is in Duke Nukem. Don't forget about the sequels to this wonderful game: Duke Nukem: A Time To Kill, Duke Nukem: Zero Hour, and Duke Nukem Forever. This game rocks!!!

I give this game 10 out of 10
