Summary

Duke is back and kickin' a**!!

The Good

Duke Nukem was good, but DN2 was infinitely better and more addictive. The adlib soundtrack and soundblaster effects give it a much more awesome feel than the internal speaker of the first one. Not to mention the graphics--much improved, and detailed. As if that weren't enough, it's chock full of explosions. What more could you ask for in an action game?

The Bad

I hate giving one sided reviews, so I'll have to say SOMETHING wrong with it. My only complaint is that finding the last 3 episodes may be too hard now, and just getting the freeware one isn't enough.

The Bottom Line

Incredible. Just incredible. Possibly the best side-scroller ever made. I'd recommend it to any classics fan, and any action fan. Nice reminder of the days when you didn't need to press 15 buttons to fire a gun.
