Summary

We gave Duke another chance, and he delivered quite a good game.

The Good

The sounds have improved like a miracle in the 2 year gap between this game and it's predecessor, there is also more action, and firepower, the graphics are no longer EGA, they're now VGA, the humor is more and better.

The Bad

The graphics, style of action, and the annoying sounds that characterize apogee games were all over Duke Nukem, but are nowhere in Duke Nukem 2, I am a huge apogee fan so this quite disappointed me.

The Bottom Line

Worth playing but also not that good, while the predecessor delivered some memorable moments this game is not much like it, it's a good, fun, entertaining game but just isn't like Duke Nukem, sure the jumping and all are similar, but the graphics, the sound, they all played a big part in Duke 1. Quite good, a swell 4/5 for this sequel!
