Duke Nukem Forever Xbox (18)
Perhaps the longest awaited game in the history of videogames, Duke Nukem Forever has reached legendary status among gamers, as a game that almost didn’t come out. But now here’s the Duke, on your Xbox 360, in all his one-liner spouting, bullet-spitting glory.
Duke Nukem Forever is a first person shooter in the classic mould, primarily because it was one of the games that created the mould in the first place. The game features fast-paced blasting gameplay, as you take on hordes of savage alien invaders who are intent on stealing Earth’s women.
Playing as the utterly unreconstructed, cigar-chomping, shades-wearing Duke, you’re given a whole armoury of weapons to defeat the off-world invaders, save the girls and protect Duke’s casinos and franchises from destruction.
These weapons include everything from pistols to shotguns, chain guns and more esoteric toys such as the shrink ray and freeze ray, both of which do exactly what they say on the packet. And failing that, there’s always Duke’s big right foot.
You’ll need all these weapons to defeat a horde of enemies ranging from the classic Pig Cops you’ll know and have loved turning into pork scratchings in previous instalments, as well as a host of alien enforcers, Octabrains, assault troopers, and not forgetting end of level bosses such as the towering Cycloid Emperor and the hideous Alien Queen.
Duke Nukem Forever offers all the frenetic first person alien blasting thrills you expect from the franchise, and is the perfect game for both long-term Duke fans and players of recent sci-fi shooters such as Bulletstorm and Brink. Duke Nukem’s ready to roll, so come get some
