Ars reviews Duke Nukem Forever

— 10:04 AM on April 1, 2006

Ars Technica has received a playable demo of 3D Realms' long-anticipated Duke Nukem Forever, and already has a review up. Surprisingly, the new Duke has been completely rewritten in Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, allowing for a true cross-platform gaming experience. The game takes place in the then-distant time of 2004, where mutated pig cops ride Segways, and iMacs are satirically equipped with Intel processors. In the long-standing tradition of its predecessor, Duke Forever also packs enough violence and adult content to keep Jack Thompson on TV for at least another ten months. Overall, Ars says the game is "fun, easy to get into, and brash," and rates it an impressive VII.
