Duke Nukem Forever: The Doctor Who Cloned Me

I think I was like the only person in the world who got a huge kick out of playing Duke Nukem Forever. Sure, the game was rough around the edges or as some would say dated and the main character was an ass but there was still something endearing about playing the world's awesomest action hero and thankfully I can now get my fix with the latest DLC for Duke Nukem Forever, The Doctor Who Cloned Me! Of course, it wasn't just me who enjoyed this game, there were thousands of other nostalgic fans from around the world as well!

Add in all the Duke Nukem clichés such as witty one-liners, sexual innuendos and the "babes" and The Doctor Who Cloned Me DLC is not only a laugh a minute ride but actually contains some entertaining and sometimes frustrating battles.

As always the stakes are high for Duke and this time he's fighting an army of clones... uh-oh... did I mention Duke Nukem clones? With around 4 to 5 hours of gaming goodness, if you enjoyed the previous game than you'll have a blast expanding Duke's portfolio in this DLC.

With the majority of your gaming time taken up with fighting, there are a few tricky battles in this game, especially the boss battle but like the first person shooter games from the 80's and 90's, it's over the top and quite acceptable at how ridiculous these moments become.

However with all this Duke Nukem goodness, not everything is perfect and as mentioned, the gaming engine still feels quite dated and all the environments blur together. There are a few memorable areas such as the moon which has this really bad B-grade action movie feel to it and of course, there are plenty of vehicles to drive, including a school bus. To help break things up, there are puzzles that must be solved and generally, these are quite easy to figure out.

Depending on your difficulty level, AI ranges from pushover to extremely challenging and I don't think I'll ever grow bored of killing those alien pig police with Duke's trusty shotgun. But if you want to try something totally different, than why not try on the Impregnator weapon for size which is once again filled with Duke Nukem outrageousness.

Graphics/Audio

Graphics are almost a duplicate of the previous game which does have a few loading issues and thankfully Jon St. John returns as politically incorrect voice of Duke Nukem. All in all, it's classic 90's first person shooter magic with gameplay, graphics and audio.

Lastly, the developers have added four new multiplayer maps that include Sky High, Command, Drop Zone and Biohazard, provided you can find the players. All kidding aside, there were plenty of gamers online when I played and it's good to see that some people can appreciate this long overdue series.

I enjoyed Command the most which was set in an Aliens (the movie) space station with lots of tight corridors and plenty of hiding spaces. Sky High was another fun level that contains way too many jump-pads which reminded me of a certain level from another blast from the past, Rise of the Triad with all the jumping. Considering the cost of this DLC, it's worth every penny.

Final Level

If you enjoyed the previous game, than you'll get a kick out of this game. I did find this game considerably easier than Duke Nukem Forever and when it came to entertainment, both are definitely tops, especially for Duke Nukem fans. Although I'm probably a little biased as I can still remember playing this game for MS-DOS and when the series went 3D. But hey, that's what nostalgia is for right? You go get 'em Duke!
