Duke Nukem Forever is a game that got too much hate from gamers around the world and "crtitics", it does have alot of flaws but it's in no way one of the worst games ever made as much as every gaming site love to say it.
It's a fairly enjoyable game with decent shooting mechanics,dated graphics and dated jokes.
For the fairly high asking price it still has for some reason (20 Euros) it's not really worth it at all but during deep discounts where the price might drop to just 6 Euros (or less) I'd say it's worth it, you'll get a couple of hours of fun out of a decent game that does have alot flaws but none them make the game compleatly unenjoyable or broken.
It's just a slightly above average game with alot of flaws but at same time it has some nice ideas and occasional pretty smart level desing moments allthought there are moments when it's kinda bad and confusing, primarly the last part of the game which I'll take about a bit later.
I like the idea of messing around with mini-games and various objects in the world to increase your EGO meter (Health Bar), the weapons are the same ones we've had in Duke 3D and they're still pretty damn fun to use, specially the satisfying shotgun, there's one level which i really liked alot when you're in Duke Burger as a tiny Duke and you have to navigate the fast food's kitchen filled with enemies and rat traps while also jumping around on burges which are still getting grilled and avoiding deep fryers and the wet electrocuted floor as a tiny lil' duke, it's a pretty fun moment in the game.
The only part i hated in the game from a gameplay perspective is the last level which takes place in a Dam, it's almost two hours long , filled with just grey dark corridors mixed in with terrible underwater sections and confusing bad level design.
There are other issues too, there's a few annoying turret sections in the game , most of the levels in the game look fairly empty and lack detail, only one that doesn't is the Duke Burger level which is my favorite,Duke for some reason get's sh*tfaced after just drinking a single beer and the game has a two weapon limit but thankfully Gearbox patched in an option that allows you now to carry four guns which makes the game much more fun but to do it you first have to go to options and turn it on which some players might miss(i think it should be ON by default).
There's also a part in the Alien Hive level of the game that's just compleatly disgusting , i'm not the sensetive type and white knight that jumps up to defend a specific side/sex/religion/whatever but that part in the Hive level where you see multiple women being r*ped(well implied r*pe) by Aliens while Duke is busting out "funny" jokes about the situation like "I guess, you're f*cked" is just awfull but it didn't compleatly ruin my general experience with the game or anything, i still had a bit of fun overral with the game.
If you like shooters, if you like Duke and don't mind his old ways of thinking than pick it up during a good sale for a few euros but don't buy it when it's not on sale, it's not worth 20 Euros at all.
