  • Developer: 3D Realms, Triptych Games, and Gearbox Software
  • Publisher: 2K Games
  • Release Date: June 14, 2011
  • Genre: First Person Sci Fi Shooter

Duke Nukem Forever is an action first-person shooter video game for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 that was developed by 3D Realms and finished by Gearbox Software. It is a sequel to the 1996 game Duke Nukem 3D, as part of the long-running Duke Nukem video game series.

Intended to be groundbreaking, Duke Nukem Forever has become infamous in the video games industry and become synonymous with vaporware due to its severely-protracted development schedule; the game has been in development since 1997. Originally in development under 3D Realms, director George Broussard, one of the creators of the original Duke Nukem game, first announced the title's development in April 1997, and various promotional information for the game was released between 1997 and 2008.
After repeatedly announcing and deferring release dates, 3D Realms announced in 2001 that it would be released simply "when it's done". In May 2009, 3D Realms was downsized for financial reasons, resulting in the loss of the game's development team. Statements by the company indicated that the project was due to go gold soon with pictures of final development. Take-Two Interactive, which owns the publishing rights to the game, filed a lawsuit in 2009 against 3D Realms over their failure to finish development. 3D Realms retorted that Take-Two's legal interest in the game is limited to their publishing right. The case was settled with prejudice and details undisclosed in May 2010. On September 3, 2010, after 13 years, Duke Nukem Forever was officially reported by 2K Games to be in development at Gearbox Software. It was originally confirmed to be released on May 3, 2011 in North America, with a worldwide release following on May 6, 2011. This has however been delayed by a month to June 10 internationally with a North American release on June 14. On May 24, 2011, it was announced that Duke Nukem Forever finally went gold after 14 years. After going gold the launch trailer for Duke Nukem Forever was released on June 2, 2011. Duke Nukem Forever was released in Australia on 9th June 2011, one day earlier than scheduled.

So far reviews for the game have been mixed: PC Gamer gave the game an 80/100, noting that "years of anticipation will spoil Duke Nukem Forever for some". The Guardian gave the game a 2 out of 5 citing that despite its throwback nostalgia, "it's hard to see modern gamers responding to an, at best, average game.

Its easily a rental fam. The story and jokes are ok but you can tell the game was easily tailored to come out back in 98-99 so alot of the #### is like eh. I haven't played multiplayer (stupid PS3) but I heard it feels like it belongs in 98 so I don't think thats a good thing. I gave it a 7 though cause its managed to make me laugh quite a bit and thats what I was expecting from a Duke Nukem game regardless.

I personally love the comedy in this game, I've laughed at a lot of the #### I heard. Gameplay wise it's definitely stuck a few years in the past. A lot of the gun sounds and #### sound like the old sounds from previous Duke games. It's not worth the full retail price, but it's worth a rental for sure.

The game definitely picks up towards the middle-end. I upgrade the score I gave it earlier from a 6 to a 7. Nothing spectacular, it's decent at best and worth a play if your bored and got nothing else to play.
