ZOOM Duke Nukem 3D

This product is included in Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition

Apogee Software / 3D Realms Entertainment, Ltd.

Game

Here It Is. Come Get Some!

Butt-kickin' aliens have landed in futuristic Los Angeles and humans suddenly find themselves atop the endangered species list. The odds are a million-to-one, just the way Duke likes it!

"Duke Nukem 3D truly looks like a 3D supermodel of a game: sleek, sexy, and gory with lead-thrashing action." -- PC Gamer

Why are the magazines raving about Duke Nukem 3D? It's simple: Once you see this game you can't go back to other 3D games without feeling bored. Duke Nukem 3D is so full of action, realism and unprecedented interaction that the other 3D action games seem like empty worlds sorely lacking in complexity.

"It's the ultimate game for unleashing all your pent-up aggression. It makes pretty much every PC game we've ever seen--DOOM included--look slightly dull. Honestly!" -- PC Gamer

Part of what separates Duke Nukem 3D from the pack is the incredible Build engine, which has been beefed up to include slopes, greatly adding to the realistic look of the environments. No longer do levels look flat as in previous hit 3D games. Another Build engine innovation is that anything can move in any direction, with allows for stunning environment effects, such as collapsing building that plummet into the ground, and earthquakes that shake the entire level creating chasms hundreds of feet deep, opening up to new, unexplored areas!

Duke Nukem 3D Features:

  • 24+ interactive, realistic, complex levels await you in the sinister streets of New Los Angeles, an orbiting space station and on the surface of the moon itself.
  • Other games talk about being "immersive," but Duke Nukem 3D delivers: With Build technology you will enter a fully interactive world of towering skyscrapers, deep canyons, murky water, functional moving vehicles and never-before-seen special effects.
  • Armed to the teeth you brandish your fully automatic sidearm, rocket launcher, remote controlled pipebombs, shrinker ray, laser trip bomb and other hi-tech weaponry designed to send the alien bastards to a messy grave.
  • Full movement control lets you sprint, jump, crawl, swim and jetpack your way through hostile environments.
  • A fully interactive, 3D level editor helps you design your own levels to play and pass around freely.
  • Multiplayer support! Duke Nukem 3D's DukeMatch(tm) feature allows for eight players to battle each other over an IPX network, or slug it out head-to-head via modem. Cooperative play is also supported.
  • Awesome and often funny speech by Duke Nukem himself.
  • SuperVGA graphics support. Requires a VESA compatible video card. Supports all major game controllers and sound cards. Game music by Prince! (Bobby Prince, that is. Bobby wrote DOOM's haunting music.)
  • Play it online! Duke Nukem 3D can be played on the Total Entertainment Network (TEN) against other players.

"It's fast, fun and feels more real than any other DOOM-style game...[with] worlds of incredible detail and complexity...simply the best we've seen. Duke Nukem 3D puts other 3D games in their place!" -- PC Gamer

Reviews:

PC Games, July 1996

"The game's story is as flat as the characters, serving only to set the stage for the fully fleshed-out combat. Murderous aliens have landed in a futuristic Los Angeles and are stealing Earth women to use as breeding stock back on their home planet. Duke Nukem, who is equal parts Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, and Jean-Claude Van Damme, sets out to stop them, It's a B-movie plot, but Duke makes up for its literary shortfalls with cleverly designed levels, some intriguing weaponry, and fast and furious gameplay."

"...These are relatively minor features, but the game is brimming with them, and they work together to separate Duke Nukem 3D from all of the other Doom clones. In fact, Duke rises above Doom in nearly every way - graphics, sound, gameplay, and even controversy (which is saying a lot."

Big-Time Controversy. "Duke may be a fun guy, but this controversial game includes a number of elements that are likely to offend some people...A parental lockout feature is available that removes most of the gore and all of the racy material and swearing, but if this kind of stuff bothers you, Duke Nukem 3D is not the game for you."

PC Gamer, July 1996

"...Duke Nukem 3D, a true Doom-clone in the purest sense, a no-nonsense kick-in-the-teeth violence buffet that is every bit Doom's equal, if not superior.

"The biggest difference between Duke and every other game that's tried and failed to mimic Doom is that Duke doesn't try to hide its intentions behind variations on the theme. There's no hand-to-hand combat here, no intricate plot, and no convoluted adventure game trappings to get in the way. This is just pure and simple excitement: shoot everything that moves, and don't get killed before you find that end-level switch. Adn Duke pulls it off like no other, with a number of nearly transparent, but impressive features."
