    Do you mean she bought it for you? That would be great. If not, it's much cheaper to get the boxed version from Amazon or other online retailers.

    You won't be disappointed. :rockout:

    This game is FUCKING amazing! I was watching some of the gameplay part's on Youtube and all these n00b player`s didn't recognize anything lol. When you are in Duke`s weight room you can boost your ego 5 x`s
    benching (adding weight`s) , lifting dumb bells while watching yourself, punching bag, speed bag, winning in pin ball machine
    . Also, you can take down enemies punching their nuts. This game is so amazing, it brings back so much memories. Also, I heard one n00b on youtube talk about Duke in the mirror. First of all, if you remember playing Duke 3D watching yourself in the mirror, you can remember how Duke`s reflection look`s like. They've adapted that in the game as a remembrance.

    REAL Duke 3D Fan Game Score: 10/10

    N00b Semi Duke Fan Game Score: 5/10

    Nub Novice (never played Duke 3D): 3/10

    I am going to upload my 35 min`s of playing Duke Forever on the PC Maxed Out. I am in the processing of editing. I pointed out a lot of spoilers and I never read the strategy guide yet. Everything is obvious if your a real Duke fan.

    I was impressed with the glass in the trailer at the Duke Dome - I had the ripper and clipped it so there was a large hole, but most of the window was still intact. Then I just shot it out, but still I don't think I've ever seen a game do that as good as it did.

    I played the game most of the weekend, and I have to say I'm extremely disappointed. And I'm very glad I cancelled my Balls of Steel Edition pre-order.

    The controls feel clunky, the "puzzles" are lame, and Duke just doesn't seem as bad ass as when I was younger. The whole limitting you to 2 guns thing is idiotic for a Duke game, it is freakin' Duke Nukem, he should be a walking arsenal! Regenerative health is lame, and the whole finding Ego Boosts to get a longer help bar was stupid. Again, it is Duke Nukem, he should be a total bad as from the beginning. Plus, it seems to me like the developers spent too much time trying to hide all the little stupid useless things that give a minor laugh the first time, but are put in the game over and over and over again... They should have spent this time desiging better levels. The original Duke3D had levels that were open, that you could explore and use a little strategy to play, killing aliens in different ways. This game has almost totally linear levels, and when you are fighting aliens it is just pray and spray gameplay.

    This is definitely not a worthy sucessor to Duke Nukem 3D.

    Yes, this game sucks and that's exactly what I expected. I love this game.

    Like I said, earlier, its very much like a "B Movie", and even my wife said "Hey, that's familiar!"


    Top-notch.

    well guess im out there then because ive played it and i enjoyed it nothing to declare greatest game over but id give a 7.5/10 its good its fun and thats all that really matters, ive seen far more boring craptastic games get higher scores from mass appeal, Duke Nukem is what it is

    and as far as im concerned drinking beer taking steroids and going fists only against 20 enemies is extremely satisfying, the gameplay was also varied to enough to keep me entertained the entire time, then again i went into this expected a game plauged with performance issues, what i got was a game that runs around 250fps looks good for what it is and made me laugh, overall if Qubit hadnt gifted me the game id have bought it myself anyway, its a game worth playing for me, its more fun then Mass Effect 2 was on PC its also more fun then Gears of War, so in that respect to me its a far better game, for the ppl bitching about 2 weapons and the ego bar, zone out ignore the Hud no joke on hard difficult youll switch weapons often enough that 2 weapon limit dosent matter. Overall not the greatest game but certainly its fun and entirely enjoyable on PC, that said i tried the PS3 version today and it played like shit so i guess the console reviewers arent totally wrong lol.

    It's not bad, but as mentioned it's nothing groundbreaking. I find it a fun game and nothing more really.

    Hope I'm the first to post what comes in the Balls of Steel edition.

    EDIT: The art book is like 50% nude women, 30% guns, 20% Duke being awesome. The bust seems well made, it looks pretty sweet.

    Yeah, it is good, ain't it? :D That lousy 62% on the Steam store page doesn't do it justice. :slap:

    What's the code for?

    On Steam you did you try: Steam> Games > Activate product on steam?
