This game isn't as bad as you might think from reviews. It is a decent Duke Nukem game with pigs, lot's of puzzles and nice graphics. It has a lot of variety. If you played the old duke nukem 3D this feels like the same thing except for the (important to me) points below.
In contrast to the old duke nukem this one has no cheats and a savepoint system. So you can't save whenever you want. Worse, sometimes savepoints are far and few between. For instance in the 'kitchen' there are about 16 points where you can easily fail. If you fail at the end you have to retry them all. This soon starts to be a grind instead of fun. Same thing for the end-bosses (for instance the ♥♥♥♥♥-queen), if you fail the, lengthy, end-boss battles you will not be able to continue and might abandon the game altogether.
Still the game is fun when you can continue. So on a scale of ten I would still give it a 6.5 in comparison with DN3D. In comparison with other recent games with a savepoint system and no-cheats (i.e. lowering my personal standard) it would be an 8.
