When the aliens come back for vengeance they hit Duke where it hurts, by drinking all of his beer, and abducting all the hot women. Duke, the icon is set back into action and this time it's more personal. Some new but many familiar weapons, and crude humor alongside huge bosses, new elements such as shrunken duke in an RC car take us to a new place while still maintaining the old charisma Duke fans remember and have waited so long for.

The first sign that Duke is still unconscious when he's at his strip club and a reference to Portal (2007) is that the lap dancer at the beginning of the level promises a lap dance and cake for completing a task. Anyone who has played Portal (2007) knows that cake is also promised at which point later on we find scrawlings of "the cake is a lie". See more »

The makers of this game should hang their heads in shame
14 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have never been so angry while playing a game, the frustration from dying and then having to wait an inordinate amount of time to restart is just not forgivable.

Even if this wasn't the case the level design is a joke with big sections where you are just walking through corridors with no enemies. I was looking forward to some platform sections but these are not taxing and there is no scope for exploration as the levels are entirely linear.

Actually I tell a lie, I did find a hidden freeze ray, not very well hidden but I found it. But then I couldn't use it (it kills you underwater) but then it is a pointless weapon anyway and only good for rats. I weakened an enemy and then emptied the thing several times and the guy didn't freeze. Most weapons feel underpowered and uninteresting too.

Enemies have minimal AI so fighting is a chore, especially the turret sections and bosses would be forgettable if they didn't kill you so much. Not because there was some advanced tactic you had to find but because there is one spot to hide in and then you spend your time going to the ammo crate, shooting, hiding and repeating.

People might tell you this game is funny, it's not. They might also say, "oh it's a Duke game, you shouldn't expect too much", I'm sorry but this is a shameless cash in, you should expect more than this sloppy excuse for a game.

3/10 and that's only because it didn't have crap in it. Oh wait, 2/10.
