Duke Nukem Manhattan Project
XBLA/PC

Taking Duke Nukem back to his roots as a platform-shooter might of not been the best idea, even way back when it was released in 2002 for the PC. While keeping the traditional Duke themes of funny weapons, quips and enjoyable equipment such as Jetpacks and Pipe Bombs the levels themselves don’t seem to suit any of this. I often found myself lost within the labyrinth levels which led to either boredom of frustration; luckily this does get better with further progression.
It’s definitely a “marmite” game and should be trialled before buying. I have a love hate relationship with the game mainly for the unfair one-shot kills and undirected boss fights but overall it does turn out to be better than average platform game which unlocks a nice avatar jetpack upon completion.

6/10

Duke Nukem Manhattan Project is not much more than a port of the 2002 PC release.The game was made in 2002 and looks that way. The character models are jagged and poorly animated. The background looks like a bad photo with the decently modeled buildings placed in front to give the appearance of depth. Even the breasts on ...
