This game is not at all for children, nor is it intended to be played by them. The content is strictly 18+, having visual depictions of graphic blood, gore, and violence, blatant use of alchol and drugs, and nudity and sexual acts.
Your character is Duke Nukem, a one-man-army who is supposed to be the man's man's man.A super build, machismo filled, witty, human weapon that all women want and all men envy and respect. He is meant to be a parody of other characters of shooters, movies, and video games but the joke, at least in this installment, falls short. During the course of the game, he doles out supposedly witty one-liners in reaction to killing enemies or picking up powerups. Some of these powerups include beer, which is a healing item, and steroids which you inject to make your physical melee attacks stronger.
The game isn't meant to take itself seriously, but unfortunately, it's very good. Compared to past installments or other first-person shooters on the market, it just doesn't have anything new or innovative to offer than your standard gore-for-gore's-sake shoot 'em up, and if you're not looking for more than that, you'll probably enjoy it.
Also, anyone can feel free to contact me for advice on other games, or just about anything. I'm not far out of my teen years, so I can help both kids and parents talk and relate. Feel free to contact me.
