Some games offer superb gameplay, others clever puzzles, Duke Nukem however has never proposed to offer anything other than good wholehearted fun, and Duke Nukem Manhattan Project is no different.
On the hunt for power-hungry villain Mech Morphix, you play Duke Nukem battling through the rather short eight levels filled with baddies and secret areas.
Unlike the original games, for some reason publishers Ubi Soft have opted to go for an 80s-styled platform game rather than the classic first-person shooter that we all know and love.
Admittedly all the characters from the original titles have been brought across; the skimpily clad women, the pig police officers as well as a truck load of mutants to boot. Weapons have also been brought across and the pipe bomb, Uzi and rocket launch soon become favourites once more.
Graphics are what you would expect from a scrolling platform game as is the sound, but you can't help but wonder why this game, in both gameplay and graphical style has gone backwards rather than forwards. Most titles 5 to 10 years ago got made from scrolling platforms into first person shooters not the other way around. --Jason Denwood
Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project is an all-new PC game starring gaming's king of action. Set in New York City, Duke battles his way
across towering skyscraper rooftops and through gritty subway tunnels on the hunt for power-hungry villain, Mech Morphix. Mutants of
every kind are thrown at Duke, including PigCops, as he chases down Morphix through eight huge environments and avoids the green
slime called GLOPP that is causing all the chaos.

The controls are very simple and the game is better and has an arcade-style if you use a Game Pad Pro or any other good Joypad.The game has 8 episodes(Rooftop Rebellion,Chinatown Chiller,Metro Madness,Unholy Underworld,Fearsome Factory,Tanker Trouble,Devient Drilling,Orbital Oblivion)each containing 3 levels,each level contains a BABE to rescue,a KEYCARD to obtain and the 3rd level has a boss.There are 9 weapons altogether(Mighty Foot,Golden Eagle,Pipebombs,Shotgun,Assault Rifle,GLOPP-ray,PRPG,Pulse Cannon and the Secret Gun)Also in each level are 10 nukes.(So 240 nukes overall)and by collecting all 10 nukes in a level you can have a higher HP limit and more AMMO.But even better,if you get every nuke you get a upgrade.
EASY=Double your kick damage
NORMAL=A black T-shirt(instead of the red one)that cancels half of all the damage done to you
HARD=The secret gun,and maybe access to a secret boss...
The graphics are the latest around so no blobs of colour here!
And all the classic Duke Phrases with some new ones like 'I HATE PIGS!' Yes its all the violence and sarcasm of Duke in an updated Side-Scolling world...
And that's what it is. An old fashioned pltform game but with bizarre camera angles so you can move in 3D (towards and away from you)and in circles. I didn't think I was going to like it much - the first level is pretty standard. However, persevere, the subsequent levels get better and better.
Grab yourself a beer and have some good old fashioned fun
