Duke Nukem Forever released following 15 year wait

Highly anticipated Duke Nukem Forever game finally lands but the critics aren't impressed

Duke Nukem Forever is available to buy in the UK today after more than 14 years of waiting, and a development process that was repeatedly halted.

The follow-up to the 1996 gaming cult classic Duke Nukem 3D, Duke Nukem Forever will see gamers tasked with controlling the catchphrase splurging Duke in a fight against a hoard of grotesque aliens who have invaded the planet with the intent of stealing all of the attractive women.

Despite the long overdue launch wait coming to an end and the release of a promising Duke Nukem Forever trailer, early reviews have seen the game being given a poor reception, with The Guardian’s review declaring the title: “Doom with added political incorrectness, or 'same old, same old' as far as the character is concerned.”

Not done with insulting the Duke, the Guardian review went on to add: "Visuals are grainy (perhaps a deliberate throwback to older Nukem titles?), aiming is clunky and there are occasional frame rate issues and buggy moments."

Filled with catchy one-liners, gruesome attacks and a bevy of scantily clad women, Duke Nukem forever is available for Microsoft’s Xbox 360, the Sony PlayStation 3 and on PC.

Was Duke Nukem Forever worth the wait or a bitter disappointment, baby? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
