Abomination of desolation!
This is a good port...
I didn`t played this but I`m putting my signature here...
I`m a Duke Nukem 3D player, and I loved every single part of it. I finished collecting Doom engine games (yes I`m a huge Doomer) I will be collecting Build engine games (I have Blood and Exhumer alongside Duke).
But back on topic. Don`t take this as a review because I wanna show you what I as Duke Nukem 3D fan and old school gamer think of this (and many of young gamers, sadly my age).
So Duke Nukem Forever is a long waited sequel to the Duke Nukem 3D made by 3D Realms as a parody of American action movie heroes.
This game is strongly similar to it. I watched videos of this game on YouTube and I must say it was awesome.
There is still that old Duke, aliens and women. Sexual content and lots of fun around.
I liked everything except:
- Levels were too linear when compared to Duke3D;
- Yellow glows and messages pointing you what to do, come on are we that stupid? Old games did not had pointers and made you turn on your brain and think instead of blindly getting into the action and do what messages say like most kids are doing these days;
- Duke carries less weapons than before and where the hell is inventory system?!
Graphics are great as well as gameplay. :)
I hate to review my favorite games, that`s why I give them 10.
But this one deserves a review because it`s special...
Kingpin is built with id Tech 2 engine (Quake and Quake II are based upon a same code. Doom is id Tech 1). The game has strong mature content, but that`s not all great about it.
Let`s call this came Strife in Quake II engine! You start the game with a intro sequence, the story is nothing special. It`s typical seeking for vengeance.
You can interact with NPCs with Positive and Negative actions. How you interact with NPCs in that way they will respond.
Some NPCs don`t want you to be armed in their presence and some can sell you stuff like the guy at the beginning in the game with Crowbar for 1 dollar.
Some NPCs are mercenaries, you will have to pay them and they will keep your back safe in combat...
As you battle with enemies you`ll notice that game does not play like Quake II at all. Combat is more tactical, you will find yourself losing health rapidly. Dying is also common, even on lower difficulties.
There is also a store you`ll come across like in Strife. You can buy yourself med-kits, armor, weapons, ammo and add-ons.
Add-ons for weapons are really useful, you can upgrade your pistol with magnum and silencer. Silencer adds the sneaky gameplay because you can also go stealth.
Levels are in non-linear fashion with hub system. You have air vents that can serve for sneaking. Also there is a notebook, it`s like that devise from Strife. All missions/quests you come across will be noted so if you forget you can see what to do.
Graphics are awesome in this game. Xatrix used better dynamic lighting from Quake II and dynamic shadows. Also there are lens flares on lights. Flashlight is added to help you in dark areas!
Awesome and underrated, buy this game. You won`t regret it!
This game is uber fun!
This game is a disease. Once you start playing you can`t get enough of it. All in old school style hell yeah!
This is a disease you don`t want to cure! It`s better from burning your eyes with WoW...
