The day we thought would never arrive has actually now happened with the International launch of Duke Nukem Forever on Xbox 360, PC and PS3. After a turbulent 15 years of stop start development the sequel to the fantastic 1996 game Duke Nukem 3D.
The new game was initially intended to be launched in 1998 and be a ground breaking sequel but somewhere along the way the game has lost its way and has now received a number of scathing reviews. One review from Ars Technica’s Ben Kuchera said Duke Nukem Forever was “barely playable, not funny, rampantly offensive,”.
Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K Games, said. “For 15 years, fans have waited in limbo just yearning to hear those two little lovely words strung together–now available.”
The new Duke Nukem Forever game takes place about twelve years after the events of Duke Nukem 3D, and now Duke become a worldwide icon, and has achieved great fame from his heroic deeds of the first game. The sequel is again a first person action shooter and along the way allows Duke to interact with his environments in a few ways, suing urinals, water coolers and whiteboards.
If you are not put off by the reviews Duke Nukem Forever is now available Internationally on Xbox 360, PC and PS3. You can view the launch trailer on our earlier post here.
