Duke Nukem Forever Full PC Game Overview
Duke Nukem Forever Download Free Full Game is a first-person shooter video game for Microsoft Windows, OS X, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. It is a sequel to the 1996 game Duke Nukem 3D as part of the long-running Duke Nukem video game series, which is the 15th anniversary of this sequel. It started development at 3D Realms and Triptych Games, and was finished by Gearbox Software and Piranha Games.
The game stars the titular action hero who must come out of retirement and save the world from aliens when they begin kidnapping the women of Earth. Intended to be groundbreaking, Duke Nukem Forever became a notable example of vaporware due to its severely protracted development schedule; the game was released in 2011 after fifteen years of development. Reception to Duke Nukem Forever was generally negative, with many critics singling out the game's second-rate graphics, dated humor, simplistic mechanics, and unpolished performance.

Duke Nukem Forever is an action-oriented first-person shooter. Players take control of Duke Nukem and navigate a series of levels which take place on Earth and beyond. The game allows players to interact with various in-game objects, including water coolers, urinals, and whiteboards, which allow players to draw their own images. The gameplay is similar in some respects to the first-person shooter games of the late 1990s and early 2000s, with each level culminating in a boss battle in which Duke has to fight and kill a large, significant alien.
Unlike the previous games, Duke can only hold two weapons at any one time, in a manner similar to the Halo series, although pipe bombs and laser tripwires are considered inventory items and as such are not limited by this restriction. The PC version allows Duke to hold four weapons in the single-player campaign. Items that have an effect on Duke can be picked up by the player; these items are steroids, beer, and the holoduke. Steroids increase the strength of Duke's melee attacks by a great deal for a limited time. Beer makes Duke much more resistant to damage, but blurs the screen. The holoduke creates a hologram of Duke Nukem that looks and acts in a very similar way to Duke, but often says slightly twisted versions of his one-liners. Whilst the holoduke is in effect, Duke becomes invisible and the AI characters do not recognize his presence. The jetpack also returns, but only in multiplayer.
Instead of the health system featured in the previous Duke Nukem games, in which health would be depleted when Duke was injured and would only increase upon finding a health pack, drinking water from fountains/broken fire hydrants, urinating, or using the portable medkit item, Duke Nukem Forever employs a system involving an «ego bar». The ego bar depletes when Duke is attacked; once it is fully depleted, Duke becomes susceptible to damage. Dying will result upon taking too much damage and cause the game to reload the last checkpoint. If the player avoids further damage, then the ego bar is restored as is Duke's health. The player can increase the size of the ego bar (thus increasing the amount of damage Duke can take) by interacting with certain objects throughout the game (for example, a mirror), and by defeating bosses. The game employs a save system that is solely based on checkpoints. Duke Nukem Forever Free Download PC Game.
Twelve years after he saved the Earth from an alien invasion, Duke Nukem is a worldwide icon, and has achieved great fame from his heroic deeds. After sampling a video game based on his past heroics (the game Duke plays is a revamped version of the final level of the third episode of Duke Nukem 3D), he arrives on the set of a talk show for an interview. On his way to the show, Duke witnesses a news broadcast announcing that aliens have once again invaded. Unlike previous encounters, the aliens initially appear peaceful and at first seem to pose no harm to the humans of Earth.
Duke's talk show appearance is cancelled to allow television stations to cover the alien invasion, and Duke retires to the «Duke Cave», his personal home. There, he receives a call from the President and General Graves of the Earth Defense Force (EDF). The President orders Duke not to harm the invaders, and adds that he is in diplomatic talks with the alien overlord. Duke obliges this request, but he and Graves remain uneasy about the whole situation from start. Before he can leave his chambers, he is attacked by hostile aliens who are swearing revenge on Duke.
Duke is forced to disobey the president's orders and fight his way through the alien hordes in an effort to save Earth. Whilst fighting through his casino, Duke witnesses the aliens abducting women, including his two live-in pop star girlfriends. Graves tells Duke that the women are being held in the Duke Dome, and that the aliens have a vendetta to settle with Duke. He also warns Duke that the aliens are using the Hoover Dam to power a wormhole so more aliens can come through. Duke travels to the Duke Dome, using a wrecking ball to damage the building to gain access. Inside, he finds swarms of Octabrains and the missing women, who have been impregnated with alien spawn; Duke's girlfriends die after giving «birth» to alien babies. Duke finds the Alien Queen in control of the Duke Dome and kills her, but is wounded in the process and blacks out. Duke Nukem Forever for PC.
After regaining consciousness, Duke fights Pigcops and aliens in through the Duke Burger. Soon, he travels to the Hoover Dam in his monster truck; after battling through the dam, he finds his old friend Dylan, mortally wounded. He tells Duke that the reborn Cycloid Emperor is at the dam, and that the only way to shut down the portal is to completely destroy the dam. Before dying, he gives Duke his demolition charges and wishes him luck. Duke places the explosives and destroys the dam, but the currents nearly drown him.
Duke is revived by an EDF soldier, and awakens to find the portal gone. The President, who was also at the dam, rages at Duke for ruining his plans to work with the Cycloid Emperor, revealing that the President was actually intending to have the aliens kill Duke and he would cooperate with Cycloid Emperor so he could control the Earth, and that he has ordered a nuclear strike at the site of the dam to wipe out the remaining aliens, intending to leave Duke there to die as revenge for foiling his plans. The Cycloid Emperor emerges and kills the President and his security detail, revealing that he intended to kill the President after the deal. Duke kills the Cycloid Emperor and is rescued by Graves just as the nuclear bomb explodes.
The game ends with a satellite surveying the detonation area and listing Duke Nukem as killed in action, to which Duke replies off-screen, «What kind of shit ending is that? I ain't dead. I'm coming back for more!» In a post-credits scene, a short video depicts a press conference, where Duke announces his intent to run for the 69th President of the United States.
Originally in development under 3D Realms, director George Broussard, one of the creators of the original Duke Nukem game, first announced the title's development in April 1997, and various promotional information for the game was released between 1997 and 1998. After repeatedly announcing and deferring release dates, 3D Realms announced in 2001 that it would be released simply «when it's done». No official video of the game was shown for almost eight years, until 3D Realms released a new teaser trailer in December 2007, but the game «sank» yet again soon afterwards.
In May 2009, 3D Realms was downsized for financial reasons, resulting in the loss of the game's development team. Statements by the company indicated that the project was due to go gold soon with pictures of final development. Take-Two Interactive, which owns the publishing rights to the game, filed a lawsuit in 2009 against 3D Realms over their failure to finish development. 3D Realms retorted that Take-Two's legal interest in the game was limited to their publishing right. The case was settled with prejudice and details undisclosed in July 2010.
On September 3, 2010, after fourteen years, Duke Nukem Forever was officially reported by 2K Games to be in development at Gearbox Software. It was originally confirmed to be released on May 3, 2011 in North America, with a worldwide release following on May 6, 2011. This was, however, delayed by a month to June 10 internationally, with a North American release on June 14.
On May 24, 2011, it was announced that Duke Nukem Forever finally «went gold» after 15 years. After going gold the launch trailer for Duke Nukem Forever was released on June 2, 2011, quelling any doubt that release was anything but imminent. On June 27, 2011, Aspyr Media announced that Duke Nukem Forever would be making its way onto Mac OS X in August 2011. It was made available for pre-order on June 27 via their online game distribution platform GameAgent.
Duke Nukem Forever was critically disappointing upon release, receiving polarizing reviews, with most of the criticism directed towards the game's long loading times, clunky controls, offensive humor, and overall aging and dated design. Aggregating review websites GameRankings and Metacritic calculated the Xbox 360 version 49.36% and 49/100, the PlayStation 3 version to be 47.6% and 51/100 and the PC version 48.52% and 54/100. Elton Jones of Complex chose the game as one of «the most disappointing games of 2011». Jim Sterling, review editor for Destructoid, said that this game was «like a disease» and named it the «shittiest game of 2011». Ben «Yahtzee» Croshaw, creator of Zero Punctuation, listed it as #2 on his list of the worst games of 2011, losing to both Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Many critics took issue with the level design and shooting mechanics, particularly when compared to both the original Duke Nukem 3D and those of other modern-day first-person shooters. Kevin VanOrd of GameSpot felt that the «joy of that game's shooting has been flattened» with «little sense of impact», finding the overall design to be «tedious», and ended his video review by calling Duke Nukem Forever a «bad, boring, bargain bin kind of game». Eurogamer commented that «few of the locations [inspired] the sort of exploration and excitement that made Duke 3D such a memorable experience. Duke Nukem Forever is linear to a fault, and huge chunks of the game are spent simply walking from one fight to another through uninspired corridors.» IGN criticized «the frequent first-person platforming segments that make up an unnecessarily large percentage of the story mode», although they stated the «shooting sections are simple fun». GamesRadar concluded that «Duke Nukem Forever's world-record development time has produced an ugly, buggy shooter that veers back and forth between enjoyably average and outright boring, with occasional surges of greatness along the way.» GamePro felt that «Unexpected moments ... are really the game's biggest strengths. But they're few and far between.» X-Play gave the game a 1 out of 5, criticizing the graphics, load time, number of enemies onscreen, the multiplayer, being called «an afterthought», the game's «creepy, hateful view of women.», and the hive level, with Adam Sessler saying that «this is all played for laughs».
Many reviewers questioned the design choices in comparison to Duke Nukem 3D, with Kotaku stating that «Old-school shooters, and this is definitely trying to be one of those with its basic AI and lack of cover mechanics, always had two great things going for them: speed and a ridiculous arsenal of weapons... Forever eschews this in favour of a plodding pace and two guns.» Noting its negative mix with modern shooter conventions, The Escapist agreed: «having been almost cryo-frozen for more than a decade, then awoken and peppered with modern touches, Duke Nukem Forever feels so out of place.»
Another common criticism was with the game's lack of technical sophistication, including inconsistent graphics and unacceptably long loading times, which GameTrailers called «unholy»; Eric Neigher of GameSpy found the console versions took up to 40 seconds to load a level. He also criticized the game's multiplayer mode for running so slowly, no one can play it without experiencing large lag spikes. Edge commented that «the myriad technical shortcomings – particularly prevalent on the console ports – only get worse the further you progress into the campaign», a view echoed by Game Revolution: «when they started on the design, that tech was already outdated». The PC version has since been patched to greatly decrease loading times and to add two optional inventory slots.
The use of the series' trademark humor received a mixed response. In one regard, some critics such as Team Xbox praised the voice work of Jon St. John, who did an «excellent job as always with Duke's persona», whilst others such as Machinima.com appreciated the comedic gameplay tips and pop culture references; however, the same critic also noted that «parts of the narrative and dialogue show clear evidence of the game's elongated development. Many pop culture references refer to media in the early 2000s, with one-liners co-opted from 'guy' movies like Old School, Highlander, and Commando, which in itself could cause blank stares from most of the current potential audience.» Australian gaming website PALGN felt the game was «saved only by its humor and nostalgic value.» Official Xbox Magazine UK thought that the humor «isn't so much offensive or misogynistic as just suffering from an adolescent fixation with boobs and crowbarred-in innuendo.» Joystiq noted that the game's multiplayer mode «Capture the Babe», involving «spanking a woman into submission», «really is as painful as it sounds». Many critics conversely criticized the characterization of Duke Nukem, declaring his decidedly one-dimensional personality juvenile and outdated in comparison to more recent video game heroes.
One particular section that received considerable criticism is the hive level, in which Duke encounters abducted women who have been forcibly impregnated with aliens. Duke has to kill them before the alien's birth does so. Both the level itself and the inclusion of disembodied, slappable «wall boobs» were listed in GamesRadar's «8 worst moments in Duke Nukem Forever». OXM noted that it «doesn't mesh with the rest of the game's tone at all», and the fact that Duke remains unfazed and continues to crack jokes about the situation was considered «outright revolting», which led to labelling Duke a «thoroughly detestable psychopath» by 1UP and Destructoid respectively. Zero Punctuation noted that the level is «as jarring a shift of tone as you can get without splicing five minutes of The Human Centipede into the middle of Mallrats.» Duke Nukem Forever Download Torrent.
