It was the first FPS that I actualy finished, back when it was released. I always liked it more than Doom and Quake series. The original cd is back in Greece, so...
So, after years I installed and played Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition. Didn't expect much.

I was so wrong. The game is just amazing! Even after all these years! Sure strategy, rpgs etc can be great, but not FPS games! This one is like, wow!
I played a bit the first level (till I met my first pig with a shotgun, where I lost...and had forgotten to save the game LOL. Apart from the graphics which look fine, and the gameplay which is EXCELLENT, I was surprised with the sound, the sound effects are still very good, and the sound of your little gun is better than any other sound of a pistol/handgun in any other FPS as far as I remember.

What a game! :guns:

I remember back in the days being able to shoot any lesser ennemies only with my Desert Eagle with ease...

Ahhh, the time spent on the multiplayer map Warzone... :angel:


Sadly, they don't make such good games anymore.

Playing for that long, whatever the game, is not healthy... I seriously wonder how you manage that anyways... Sugar trip?

I enjoyed playing it. Especially loved the wisecracks, such as when I lobbed a pipe bomb at 3 piggies and blew them apart, Duke says "heh heh heh, what a mess!"
They packed that game with everything. Sure wish they'd get to a sequal.

I just got finished playing the FEAR demo! WICKED darn game I've ever seen! A MUST. Duke Nukem nowadays should be on a scale such as this.

I loved to play Duke Nukem 3D... I still play it when I got the time. Does anybody know something about the next Duke Nukem??? I haven't heard fresh news about it
