This game has a great selection of hard-hitting weapons: the incendiary RPG, the hi-temp flamethrower, mini laser gatling gun, super zapper (disrupter rifle, as I call it), pipe bombs, dynamite, shotgun, sniper rifle, etc. There's also an awesome array of Duke's patented wisecracks: "Damn, yer fugly!", "Whoa, what the h@!! have you been eating?!", "Aw, I'm sorry, did that hurt?", "You little shit", "Where's your organ grinder?", "That's one less illegal alien!", etc. Also, plenty of levels, lots of exploring, and lots of babes to save, guns and stuff to pick up, and more stupid aliens to shoot than you can shake a .44 magnum at.
there was nothing I didn't like about this game! It rocks in every way.
The Bottom Line
Extremely funny. Great if you need something to vent your frustrations on if you've had a rotten day at school, work, etc. Go take it out on those fat, ugly, stupid pig cops!!!!! blow those smelly porkers to kingdom come!

The initial release of the game had a bug which prevented playing the game through. It was removed from the shops in less than a week, and the new version came out the same month.
The original title Duke Nukem: Planet of the Babes ran into legal trouble with the Planet of the Apes franchise holders forcing a last minute change to Land of the Babes. Producer Phil Gelber had this to say in an interview with 3D Realms:
Q: How much of an irritation or an issue was it regarding the name change from Planet of the Babes to Land of the Babes?
A: It was pretty irritating from the standpoint that we had been using the name for a while, and although it was a great name, Land of the Babes wasn't a take off of Planet of the Apes. To be honest, there really isn't enough material to base a good game on Planet of the Apes.
Q: Once you found out the name of the game had to be changed, how much of the game itself did that affect? Did you make any other changes to the game besides the name?
A: Like I mentioned above, we really didn't have any Planet of the Apes materials in the game, so the changes were minor. We had to change all the title screens, and the like, as well as change a few audio lines. For example you won't get to hear Duke say, "You damn dirty apes." Shame some people just can't take a joke.
