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 became infamous in the video games industry and its name became synonymous with vaporware due to its severely-protracted development schedule; the game had been in development since 1996. Upon release in 2011, Duke Nukem Forever has received mostly negative reviews from critics.
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 actually a revamped version of the final level 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. Unlike previous encounters, the aliens initially appear peaceful and at first seem to pose no harm to the humans of Earth. Duke’s talk show appearance is cancelled to allow television stations to cover the alien invasion, and he retires to the “Duke Cave.”
There, he receives a call from the president and General Graves of the military. The president orders him to not 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 even 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 yet again. Duke learns that The Hoover Dam has become an alien wormhole bringing in more hordes. Duke travels to it with the use of his “Monster foot” truck. After credits of the video game there is an easter egg hinting to maybe another Duke Nukem.
Duke Nukem Forever is an action-oriented First Person Shooter. Players take control of Nukem as they navigate through a series of levels which take place on Earth and beyond. The game allows players to interact with various in-game objects, including urinals, water coolers and whiteboards which allow players to draw their own images. The gameplay is similar in some respects to the First Person Shooter games of the late 90s and early 00s, each level culminating in a boss battle in which Nukem has to fight and kill a large, significant alien.
Items that have an effect on Nukem can be picked up by the player, these are steroids, beer and a holoduke. Steroids increase the strength of his melee attacks by a great deal for a limited time, beer makes him much more resistant to damage but blurs the screen and a holoduke creates a hologram of Duke Nukem that looks and acts in a very similar way to Duke but often says slightly twisted versions of his one-liners. Whilst the holoduke is in effect, Nukem becomes invisible, the AI characters do not recognise his presence.
Instead of the health system featured in previous Duke Nukem games in which health would be depleted when Nukem was injured and would only increase upon finding a health pack, Duke Nukem Forever employs a system involving an ‘ego bar’. The ego bar depletes when Nukem is attacked, once it is fully depleted, Nukem is susceptible to damage, if the player avoids further damage the ego bar is restored, as is Nukem’s health. The player can increase the size of the ego bar (thus increasing the amount of damage Nukem can take) by interacting with certain items throughout the game, a mirror, for example, and by defeating bosses
