4.0 out of 5 stars brilliant FPS, 19 Sept. 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Duke Nukem Forever (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
This is an FPS with everything - good shooting and weapons, plus setpieces that equal the likes of COD /Halo / Homefront etc for intensity. Also Duke Nukem isnt afraid to be silly and has many inventive touches that other po-faced shooters cant do, being shrunk for instance is often a highlight with brilliant level design that has platforming and puzzling elements.
The gameplay is great, the humour is funny and nowhere near as simplistic as some reviews make out - theres more to it than boob jokes or stereotype humour, in places it has the kind of joke found in Borderlands / Fallout / Mass effect / Fable etc ie drily amusing or slightly surrealist (one elderly character referring to an attacking alien says "I'm going to donkey punch you in the blowhole" - whatever that means....it just sounds funny when said by a wheezy old bloke).From start to finish I thought Duke Nukem Forever was a blast, and at twenty hours on the hardest difficulty you get your moneys worth.
If you liked Prey or The Orange Box this has similar qualities - semi cerebral challenges with solid shooting and fantastic variety in the action, designed in such a different way to the likes of corridor shooters like COD (although the humour may not be everyones cup of tea)
