Duke Nukem = Action + Humour + Replayability
3 September 2006 | by fireemblem555See all my reviews

Duke Nukem 3D has all the action of today's video games, coupled with humour, and secrets that keep you searching for hours. With today's advanced computer hardware even a simple system can take full advantage of the features of this game.

It offers cheat codes, as well as a range of difficulty levels, the easiest being laughably easy, and the hardest leaving sweat stains on your computer room chair.

I have replayed Duke Nukem 3D many times, always entertained by the humorous endings to boss battles, which I will not reveal to prevent spoiler warnings. All I can say is BUY THIS GAME!
