Duke Nukem is most assuredly showing its age, and some people may be turned off by the game’s portrayal of women. But if you remember playing the shareware game in its heyday, or want to experience a first-person shooter that really tests your reflexes, then pick this re-release up.
Overall the game is very enjoyable. The old school FPS gameplay is as fun as it ever was. Aside from a few levels which are tad overcomplicated and may lead to some frustration figuring out where to go next, most levels walk the fine line of being just complex enough to be interesting. Aside from the graphics which have aged pretty poorly, there isn’t much else bad to say about this game.
If you've any interest in gaming history, or get a warm, nostalgic feeling about having played Duke's adventures in the past, then Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition is well worth your time. If, however, you don't fall into either of these camps, then it's unlikely that any of the smart design decisions made to update this classic will get you past the more antiquated aspects. This is a shame as, despite the odd misstep, it's a perfect fit for the Vita, offering one of the best examples of the genre on the handheld to date.
