I never heard of this game before in my life until, (this will sound awkward) duke nukem forever and I played it first
liked it and wanted more of duke, then I noticed this game and wanted to see why this game was so great and better than DN:F.
Its great references from the 80's to the 90's, non linear open ended levels, simpler puzzles compared to DN:F, neat arsenal of weapons you can hold, familiar enemies, well placed enemies, non-stop action, badass duke and his one funny one liners, neatly placed secrets, great level design (most levels can be interconnected with each other so it will take less time getting to where you want), no regenative health just good old health kits and armour pick ups, pretty tense battles, creative ways you can kill your enemies which is what I didn't like in the new duke game, jet packs (why did they remove them in single player and include them in multiplayer?), you can take steroids and still wield your weapons while in new duke game you can't and most importantly; mod support which new duke game doesn't have.
It is great and the replayability value is high it is worth either full price or on sale, the only complaint that I have with both games is the so dead multiplayer, had some fun in the DN:F multiplayer but never got a chance to play it in this game because there are almost no lobbys but if there is one its hard to get into because of the disconnections
