I never play 3D before but past games. The gameplay is similar to Wolfenstien, Doom and 90s first person shooter games. Duke have many weapons in his arsenal.

Starting with L.A Meltdown, Lunar Apocalypse, Shrapnel City and The Birth episodes. There is multiplayer mode for creating and joining lobbies. If you want to be creative, there is a level editor. Duke loves woman and you can tip strippers. There is some controversy about woman in Duke Nukem.



Let’s rock and thoughts


Duke Nukem 3D 20th Anniversary World Tour is rocking and action alien gore-fest. Fans who grew up with potty mouth action hero. Will embrace this game with open arms and get a kick. Dukey is back and Forever didn’t do it justice. 90s pay the way for hardcore shooters in that time. Players will encounter pig cops and gun towing lizards. Gearbox remastered Duke Nukem 3D and stay true to source material. Soundtrack is slamming and head-banging riot. After select a episode, there is difficulty whatever you choose. Note: Duke Nukem is not for children under 17 and for mature audience. Player will uncover secret areas to get loot.

I wonder will they do more retro FPS games like The House of the Dead, PowerSlave and much more. Fans will give this game another go and feel nostalgia. Duke Nukem 3D 20th Anniversary World Tour is available on Steam, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game have gamepad function if you want to use it. I prefer keyboard and mouse for precise control. Another thing before I sign off. Some puzzles leave players want to do next. I had to refer to a guide online to figure it out. The game is very good every way and very challenging.
