Duke Nukem Forever is a divisive title to say the least and I have to say that I really didn't, and still don't, think it was worth the wait, although at times it can put a smile on your face. The handy code above'll bring the price of the game over at Greenman Gaming down to £2.81, which should make you a saving of around £3 on the next best offers out there. Thanks to danhufc @ HUKD.
You know what? Duke Nukem Forever wasn't great by any stretch of the imagination, and it was certainly disappointing, but this hilariously-delayed shooter is still pretty fun.
There, I said it. It's fun. And I like it. Sue me. [Please don't - Ed]
It's also nice and cheap thanks to Greenman Gaming reinstating their March deal, saving you about £1.50 compared to Coolshop.
Steam previously provided the PC crowd with a similar deal, but now ShopTo are practically giving away Duke’s FPS return on the Xbox 360. A saving of over £3 is currently there compared to the next best offer from BlahDVD and its chums.
Yes, it was an average shooter. Yes, it really wasn’t worth the wait overall. However, the nostalgia trip is a fun one that manages to raise a laugh or two by its references, and could make for an entertaining yet brainless gaming session. At this price it’s worth indulging any curiosity over the game if you have yet to try it. Thanks to Syzable @ HUKD!
Chances are that this one'll disappoint you because it's about as average as they come and feels incredibly dated, which is a shame considering how long it took to finally make its way to us. Having said that there's a chance the game'll put a smile on your face at some point or another. Greenman Gaming are currently parting with PC copies of the game for £3.74, which should make you a saving of just over £2.50 on the next best offer coming in from Amazon.
It was bound to happen eventually and here we are; a Steam midweek madness deal that brings Duke’s long awaited return to less than £4. There’s a saving of just over £2.50 over Amazon’s next best price.
Yes, it was an average shooter. Yes, it really wasn’t worth the wait. However, the nostalgia trip is a fun one that manages to raise a laugh or two by its references, and the PC version is arguably the definitive one. Patches adding in the ability to carry more than two guns don’t improve matters by much, but at this price it’s probably worth a punt to make your own mind up. If you do end up liking it, there are DLC packages available at a discounted price as well. Thanks to Shebani @ HUKD!
Duke Nukem Forever is a painfully average game at times, but that doesn't mean it can't put a smile on your face. Indeed, for many gamers this'll be an essential purchase for the nostalgia value and numerous film and game references alone. Yes, it's creaking at the seams; yes, it shows off all thirteen years of its troubled development history; yes, its mechanics are about as up to date as a fossil. But if you're bored by the slew of shiny military shooters of late, this might be right up your street.
Duke Nukem Forever is finally out. We lived to see a pivotal event in gaming history unfold before our unbelieving eyes... though the end result certainly failed to set the critical world on fire. Fans, however, rave about its imaginative pacing and set pieces - as well as the big, bold and unashamedly balls-out action.
And it's now £7.99 until tomorrow evening. Which is good value as far as I'm concerned.
Duke Nukem Forever was, on the most part, absolutely atrocious. Many of us still enjoyed its pacing, unique gameplay features and good old fashioned action, but there's no getting past the horrible load times, dual weapons and the fact that it probably would have received an average score several years ago.
It's a tenner, though. Past Times sell paperweights for more than that, and this is one that you can actually play if you're so inclined.
Duke Nukem Forever is a decidedly average game, which is a bit of a shame because Duke deserved a much better come back! The shooting isn't anything special, in fact it's a tad annoying to be honest with you. On the plus side there are plenty of film and game references to put a smile on your face. ShopTo are parting with Xbox 360 and PS3 copies of the game for £19.85, which'll make you a saving of almost £2.50 on the 360 and over £3 on the PS3.
If you've already seen my review for Duke Nukem Forever then you'll know that I was incredibly disappointed with it and it's definitely not the return Duke deserved. The aiming's not particularly great and overall it offers up a pretty bland experience. However, there are plenty of film and game references spread throughout the single player that'll probably bring a smile to your face. The merchants listed above are parting with PC copies of the game for £12.98, which is almost £2 cheaper than the next best offer coming in from The Hut. Thanks to realblender @ HUKD.
