    Gearbox did a fine job here and the new goodies and content are a huge plus. I do wish the other content from the Megaton Edition were here, but this is still a great addition to your digital library.

    All in all, Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour is the perfect homage to the original by capturing the essence of the classic while adding new visuals, audio and levels. Moreover, its humorous social commentary remains a welcome presence in a current scene that is sorely lacking it

    The best way to play the iconic first-person shooter. The new levels are some of the best in the entire game, and show that Nerve Software understands what makes Duke Nukem great.

    In spite of some omissions and technical issues, Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour remains a classic. The original game design is tough, fun and interactive. For those who weren't around when this was first released, the engine change is less jarring than the old design and the new episode is quite good. At its current asking price of $20, it is tough to recommend no matter how big of a fan you are, and those who missed out on the Megaton Edition on PS3 and Vita or those who simply want it on PS4 would be better served waiting for a sale.

    As a tribute to the original is definitely good, but it might not match the standards of 2016. Depending on what you're looking for it's a good or a not-so-good option.

    While it looks and sounds better than the original and even the Megaton Edition, there isn't really enough new here to warrant a purchase.

The new 3D rendering, sound FX and music, designer commentary, and other features like new Duke talk are all just added bonuses on top of what is easily the greatest possible version of this already historical game. You cannot go wrong with picking this game up. They also somehow managed to make playing the game with a controller work just as flawlessly as they did with a keyboard and mouse 20 years ago. Expand

    So buy the game, grab a shotgun (and some steroids) and blast some pigcops into a messy porkchop pulp!

    I grew up with this game on my first PC and haven't played it since. It's still a really good game. I don't know why people are moaning- II grew up with this game on my first PC and haven't played it since. It's still a really good game. I don't know why people are moaning- I am guessing cos they bought it in previous iterations and object to paying again. If you fancy a nostalgia trip and also one of the great FPS's then why not? New levels too- can't argue with that. Expand

Old episodes play just how I remember. True 3D rendering makes the game look a bit more modern, looks nice. The new episode is really fun, classic Duke Nukem alien ass kicking. Nice new feature allowing you to continue after death wherever you please (from beginning of your playthrough, to the moment right before your death). Trophies, including a pretty easy platinum are a nice bonus. The sound effects are not very good honestly, seem to have no notable improvements. I also wished they could have remastered or just remade entirely those little cutscenes at the end of each episode. Looks terrible after completing a level in true 3D rendering. There is also a multiplayer mode which I haven't really tried yet. Just a quick game of deathmatch at Hollywood Holocaust.

    Pretty cool package all together. Will probably be playing this version whenever the Duke 3D fever hits me again.

    I bought this game about a year or so after launch. It was on sale for around 10 bucks, so I thought "why not?" When the game works, it worksI bought this game about a year or so after launch. It was on sale for around 10 bucks, so I thought "why not?" When the game works, it works good. Fun to play and explore levels, just good old fashioned FPS gameplay. Unfortunately, every time I played the game there would be an error with the software that occurred every time I played it. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game to fix it, but nothing fixed it. It sullied my thoughts about the game and I would warn anyone who considers buying it now to be aware of the this issue. I don't know if they make physical copies of the game or if this issue occurs on it as well, but I did hear that the Xbox One and PC versions of the game worked relatively fine, so if you're really looking to play this game, please play either one of those versions. There's a good game here, but I literally cannot play it. Expand
