Duke Nukem: Forever was released June 14, 2011 by 2K Games. The game was developed by Gearbox. Duke Nukem: Forever is a first person shooter.
Step into the ego filled shoes of Duke Nukem, the steroidal one-man army who never fails and always gets the babes.
The game takes place about twelve years after the events of Duke Nukem 3D. Duke is now a worldwide icon, and has achieved great fame from his heroic deeds.
After sampling a video game based on his past heroics (the game Duke plays is a revamped version of the final level of the third episode of Duke Nukem 3D), he arrives on the set of a talk show for an interview.
On his way to the show, Duke witnesses a news broadcast on a nearby television screen announcing that aliens have once again invaded.
The president orders him not to harm the invaders, and adds that he is in diplomatic talks with the alien overlord. Duke obliges this request, but remains uneasy about the whole situation. However, before he can leave his chambers, he is attacked by hostile aliens.
Duke is forced to disobey the president’s orders and fight his way through the alien hordes in an effort to save Earth. Whilst fighting through his casino, Duke witnesses the aliens abducting women including his two live-in pop star girlfriends.
Graves tells Duke that the women are being held in the Duke Dome, and that the aliens have a vendetta to settle with Duke.
After about 30 minutes of game play the action picks up. It’s also not fun to die, only to be faced with a way-too-long loading time to get back into the action. In fact, the loading times in general are horrendous.
