Recent scientific studies show that playing Duke Nukem can significantly increase testosterone levels, lean muscle mass, sex drive and your ability to snap off witty one-liners. Side effects include but are not limited to shortened blond hair, light-sensitive eyes (may need dark sunglasses), and hearing loss due to large caliber gunfire.
Every time he thinks he's done saving the world, they pull him right back in. You see, Mr. Nukem was enjoying a relaxing evening at the Bootilicious gentlemen's club when a bunch of hoglodytes bust in through a time portal and start tearing up the joint. After taking care of the pigs, Duke enters the portal only to emerge into a world of Babes.
The planet has been devastated by a creature called Silverback (guess what animal he is) and all the men in this strange world have been done away with. The Babes have formed a resistance group to fight the gun-toting animals but time is running out. They need Duke and his big gun to clean up this mess.
Planet of the Babes is Duke's third PS outing, and like Time to Kill, is an over-the-shoulder 3D action game. There are now 23 new levels, plus six cool multiplayer maps. Missions include underground bunkers, underwater buildings, junkyards, and a space port level that's a great spoof on Star Wars (complete with carbonite-frozen babe). In two-player deathmatch mode, gamers can split the screen three-ways-to-Sunday (diagonal is cool) in either third- or first-person perspectives. Make sure you spend some time in the four training areas because the game packs a Duke-load of new moves, many of which seem inspired by a certain tomb-raiding babe. An auto-targeting system makes wasting enemies easier and all the old favorite weapons are back along with some new surprises. Duke's health is now handled by the EGO system that gives a health boost when an enemy is capped.
n-Space seems well on its way to producing another fun and edgy action game featuring 3D Realms' blond bad boy. Look for GT Interactive to unleash this PlayStation exclusive Duke-venture in July.
