just because this game is terrible in about every way doesn't mean its not a good game i hate it when people come in here and say this game is terrible because they don't think its appropriate for children well this game isn't for children and its ment to be outrages in every way i know i shouldn't be playing it because its over the top but that doesn't make it a bad game
In this overly politically correct world, we need Duke Nukem.
People complained about the game being sexist. Well, this is satire. It isn't meant to be taken seriously, it isn't meant to be educational, it's about FUN. After seeing how people reacted to this game, I think they need to be less politically correct. You can't even make a gay joke without someone freaking out.
I bought this game when I was 15, it wasn't too much. There's quite a bit of violence and gore, but the mediocre graphics make it less intense. The language is pretty strong. There's use of steroids and beer as power-ups as well. The sexual content isn't constant, but there are some pretty sexual things. Other than the crude jokes, there's also a level in a strip club, which includes nudity. And (implied but not quite shown) sexual acts. If you don't want your kids seeing strippers, don't buy this for them. I don't recommend it for kids.
Thanks for bringing Duke back, Gearbox!
I understand on how some adults think some M rated games are ok for there "mature" teens but this game has so much language, violence and sex that you should be most definitely 17 to play it. Nobody needs to hear the F-word every 3 seconds or any of the other things you do in this game.
The game is way to violent for kids younger then 16 years of age. Has a lot of blood and gore, also a lot of sex scenes and bad words. Besides that the gameplay is absolutely incredible I love playing this game. Just the graphics are kinda messed up and the storyline also. Hopefully another Duke Nukem comes out, I will definitely buy.
This game isn't as bad as they say, even though the gameplay is overally bland, but for the record, I post here to help the parents realize that M rated games aren't for kids.
Duke Nukem Forever may seem like Call Of Duty at first glance, but the game is filled to the brim with sexual references, violence, swearing, gambling and Eldritch Abominations that may scare children. For example, in the scene after the first boss battle, two twins are seen performing fellatio to the main character. In Xbox Live mode, you get to put prostitutes in your decorative lobby. If you don't want children learning certain sexual acts, keep them away from this game.
I did not think this game was as bad as critics made it out to be. Sure this game is bad but i'd say it's about level with Saints Row: The Third. Everything in SR3 is in this game for the most part. Your mature teen should be able to handle this game.
This game is not (in ANY way) kid-appropriate. Half my friends act pervy, and though it may not be from this, it could happen to your kid, too. This game has strong gory violence that NO parent SHOULD find acceptable. Sexual content is VERY strong, more strong than the violence. Crude and sexual jokes, nudity, sexual actions (i.e. strip cubs, things like that), and a vibrating condom is seen. The Duke cusses ALOT. Almost every word known to man is used by him. He also drinks and smokes alot. Finally, this game is fun and challenging, but NOT for kids. When I played it, I was surprised that it wasn't rated Adults Only.
This game is the worst. I played it and you can't even get away from sexuality for 5 minutes. You also have a very hard time trying to kill aliens, there is a scene in the first start of the game that I won't even say. This game was clearly created by desperate perves that wish that they had a girlfriend. Gearbox, 2k, etc. are responsible for creating this game. Come on! You could be 8 and looking through games, you buy duke nukem forever, and then BAM! You're scarred for life. Have a Great day.
Lame game that has a lot of mature themes. There is endless amounts of sexual content such as a lot of implications and references to sex that get very crude. Lots of nudity such as a lot of decor with breasts and scenes of female nudity and it is pretty frequent. Sexual content is very rough making this defintley not for younger kids. There is a lot of violence throughout including blood and gore including decapitations, dismemberment, etc. Tons of language including frequent use of "F---" and "S---". There is smoking/drinking/steroid use on this game. Very mature 14 if not 15. Suggested MPAA R: Strong Crude and Sexual Content Throughout including Graphic Nudity, Bloody Scfi Violence, Pervasive Language, Drug and Alcohol Use, and Disturbing Images.
