  1. Sunstorm has done a great job in varying the environments (from city rooftop to sewers to subways to space) to provide fresh visuals and interesting battlefields, and successfully integrated different styles of game play to make it more than a simple run and gun where you just plow down wave after wave of enemy.
  2. It's nice to see Duke again, and even nicer to have a great modern platform game. [Sept 2002, p.84]

    It's basically the original duke games except with good graphics and sound. anyone who's a fan of those old games would likely be quite happy with this one. it's fairly classic gameplay. my favorite thing is how duke nukem talks smack every time he does something. it's quite varied and pretty funny.

    Another good Duke Nukem game. This is more like a remastered version of Duke Nukem 1 and 2, but this isn't a bad thing. This really fun, although not as good as the originals. It deserves a play, so get off XBLA if you have some MS points to spare. Full Review »
