Personal review

Un juego gamberro, soez y de acción y destrucción absurdas. Aunque arrastra algunos elementos metidos a calzador y tiene el grave error de incluir un sistema de escudo nada clásico, simpre es satisfactorio jugar a un juego de acción donde puedes esquivar las balas sin ser El Elegido.

Lo mejor las fases de canijo y el multijugador.

Aunque no es un mal juego, no está a la altura de su antecesor o del reciente juego 2D protagonizado por el Duke. Eso sí, da para muchas risas.

De todas formas: Hail to the king.

Official description

The King is Back!

Cocked, loaded and ready for action, Duke delivers epic ass-kicking, massive weapons, giant explosions and pure unadulterated fun!

Put on your shades and step into the boots of Duke Nukem. The alien hordes are invading and only Duke can save the world. Pig cops, alien shrink rays and enormous alien bosses can’t stop this epic hero from accomplishing his goal: to save the world, save the babes and to be a bad-ass while doing it.

The King arrives with an arsenal of over-the-top weapons, non-stop action, and unprecedented levels of interactivity. With hours and hours of action, and a range of bodacious multiplayer modes, rest assured knowing the fun goes on and on.

Story
Did the Alien bastards not learn their lesson the first time? Duke has been on hiatus for some time now, kicking back and franchising himself on the fame he gained from saving Earth from the first invasion. The Aliens have returned to Earth yet again, messing up Duke’s sweet routine of dirty leisure habits.

The Alien invaders are stealing Earth’s women, especially the hot ones! And they drank Duke’s beer. This. Won’t. Stand. As Duke battles his way through waves of aliens, the once beautiful gambling haven and Duke Nukem franchise chains are crumbling before his eyes. Time to bring the pain!

Features
* Bust a Gut: Duke pulls no punches. Duke’s constant stream of hilarious one-liners throughout the game make this an out loud good time.
* World Interactivity: Spend as much time as you want shooting hoops, lifting weights, playing pinball, pool, air hockey, and slots.
* Scale & Variety: Packed with explosive FPS action, outlandish settings, driving, and puzzle solving — gamers will never tire of the endless FUN.
* Multiplayer Like No Other: Classic modes are re-made with a Duke twist. Shrink, squash, freeze and shatter your opponents, or just frag them with a rocket.

Comment

Contains references to at least the following games:
* Doom 3 (teleporting to hell remarks, and possibly the dead [doomed] space marine remark when you find Isaac's helmet)
* Dead Space (Isaac's helmet)
* Halo (Spartan power armor)
* Fallout New Vegas (defense of Hoover Dam and how the aliens can tap into it for limitless power or something)

Surfaced now and then between 1997-2010 or so, earning itself the status as the best known vaporware.

3D Realms was closed down in 2009-05 which made future of DNF unclear, but later Take-Two (who held the publishing rights and apparently the IP) announced they're going forward with the project under another developer.

In development since April 1997, its earned the nick name Duke Nukem Taking Forever
