Duke Nukem 3D
Not as groovy as you would hope it to be
Duke Nukem 3D Review
by on November 16, 2011
Ah, Duke Nukem. Once remembered as one of the most fun first-person shooters around, the game has been sullied of late with the rather late arrival of Duke Nukem Forever, a title that did nothing but wipe dog poo in the legacy of the game.
This is a real shame as Duke Nukem 3D is a fantastic and fun shooter to play – and one that has finally been made for Android.
While this version doesn’t quite fail as Duke Nukem Forever did, the port is lacking a little love.
At 27MB it’s not the biggest game we have downloaded but it does take up a fair bit of space but this isn’t our biggest gripe – that is to do with the control system.
For some reason this port has put the fire buttons far too close to the virtual movement controls so we clumsily kept shooting when all we wanted to do was move (which sort of echoes real life).
This is a real shame as the game play is still great – Nukem’s wisecracks will still crack you up and the dated look of the FPS still has oodles of charm.
That is until you get further into the game and are asked for more money to progress – which is very annoying considering we thought we were paying for the whole thing.
Not a disaster but Duke Nukem 3D does shoot itself in its foot too much for it to be an enjoyable game on Android.
