Duke it out in D.C. offers ten fantastic add-on levels that are so awesome, they rival some of the original Duke Nukem 3D levels! There's no overlooking the fact that other than ten superb levels, you won't find much else that enhances the gameplay. There aren't any new monsters or weapons, which is this pack's biggest downside. Although the Plutonium Pack only featured two new monsters and one new weapon, it did offer that much. No matter how you look at it though, Duke it out in D.C. could very well be the BEST Duke Nukem 3D add-on yet!
Simply put, WizardWorks' Duke it out in D.C. is far better than I thought it would be. I was expecting a mild distraction, not the slam-bang, shoo-the-wife-away addictive gameplay that I got. The real strength of the new episode is in its fully-developed, beautifully designed levels. From the blazing inferno of the Capitol Building, to the grit and grime of the Metro subway stations, these maps are great in single-play as well as DukeMatch. At $20, Duke it out in D.C. is one of the best bargains you'll find on the shelf. Any self-respecting Duke junkie would be a fool to let this one slip by. Playing Duke it out in D.C. was the most fun I've had with Duke Nukem 3D in a long, long time.

Meanwhile, there are many improvements over the original Duke. This version's nuclear submarine is full-sized and fully functional (even the torpedoes work), not just a means to end a level. The Smithsonian is an amazingly detailed level with aquariums, a space exploration section, and an overview of ancient civilizations. The subway system is well designed and appropriately gritty. There are plenty of wide-open areas with places to duck behind for decent multiplayer matches. Plus, you shouldn't miss the final animation. It's not that spectacular, but if you click any key after defeating the "Boss," you'll skip it. Duke It Out in D.C. misses a few obvious opportunities to improve on the original, but the numerous enhancements that weren't missed, and the low price, make this a worthy investment for anyone looking to prolonging the reign of "the king."

Quelques nouveaux monstres, une difficulté honnête et le charme de Duke Nukem 3D permet de s'amuser comme un petit fou et surtout, d'explorer la Maison Blanche et Washington, habilement reconstitués en 3D !
