    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.

    Sidescroller fun. A throwback to the original Duke Nukem games Manhattan Project is stupidly fun. I hope another title like this is made. 10! Thanks 3D Realms, you rock!

    If you enjoy the resurgence of 2D playformers, this game is worth a look. In fact, it's one of the first "2.5"D games released on PC, before this trend hit with Trine, the Bionic Commando remake, etc. While the graphics aren't amazing, DN:MP, unlike most other games in the 2.5 genre, actually *uses* the third dimension. Many levels have 2-3 levels of foreground/background and such, whichIf you enjoy the resurgence of 2D playformers, this game is worth a look.

Many levels have 2-3 levels of foreground/background and such, which adds a refreshing change to the run and gun gameplay. It's also dirt cheap and DRM-free on GoG's website. Having played the Duke Forever demo... I'd say this game is way better if you need a Duke fix. Expand

    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.

  1. Occasional monotony aside, however, Duke Nukem: MP is still a very fun game while it lasts - and the price absolutely cannot be beat.
  2. The final battle isn’t a huge deal, and the ending isn’t spectacular, but it’s one hell of a ride to get there.
  3. It's nice to see Duke again, and even nicer to have a great modern platform game. [Sept 2002, p.84]
