Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition is a great first-person shooter package. It that includes the original Duke Nukem 3D game and three additional bonus expansions. Similar to other FPS games from its era, such as Doom and Quake, this shooter title provides a fast-paced experience packed with inventive guns and loads of cool enemies. However, Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition distinguishes itself from its peers by including a healthy dose of gore, crude language, and raunchy humor, mashing action and comedy into one exciting adventure. While some aspects of the game might seem outdated compared to modern shooters, Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition still provides an enjoyable ride.
Main Game Features:
- Explosive retro FPS action
- Over 12 unique weapons
- Includes the base game and three additional expansions
In Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition, you control Duke, a cigar-smoking gunman with the attitude of an action-movie star.
The story picks up with Duke returning to Earth after a dangerous mission in space, hoping for a bit of rest. Unfortunately, as he lands near Los Angeles, California, his ship is gunned down by alien invaders. Over the course of four distinct episodes, Duke must eliminate the alien threat in LA and ultimately save Earth by taking the fight back to the alien homeworld.
Throughout the adventure, Duke often cracks off-color jokes and makes humorous references to pop culture, providing a silly tone to balance out the gratuitous amounts of blood and guts. The three additional expansions included in the Megaton Edition all have short, self-contained stories as well, leading Duke to other notable locations. You'll explore the national capital in Washington D.C, survive a frozen nuclear winter, and even take a vacation to the Caribbean.
Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition provides classic run-and-gun gameplay, spread across dozens of exciting and inventive levels. Like most FPS games from the late-90s, this compilation plays out in a mostly linear fashion, encouraging players to blast down enemies as they explore a variety of interesting environments. Levels include everything from strip clubs to alien ships, often packed with secrets and goodies. The overall objective in each level is simple and straightforward; reach the end of the stage without dying to the overwhelming alien threat. Players must explore the environment to collect three keycards, normally used to unlock doors and access later areas of the stage. There's an abundance of interesting weapons to use, including a rocket launcher, shrink-ray, pipe-bombs, and more.
Overall, Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition is a fantastic package full of exciting FPS gameplay. The main game has an interesting mixture of levels set in Los Angeles and space, while the additional expansions offer more exotic locales.
Whether you're blasting enemies on the beach, navigating a futuristic alien ship, or blazing down enemies at a fast food joint, there's no shortage of fun levels. An abundance of cool weapons and fast-paced shooting ensures the action never slows down, continuously providing explosive moments of entertainment.
