Are the sound effects and sountrack good?

Duke Nukem Forever is the long awaited return for one of the most simplistic and macho video game heroes of all time. Duke Nukem is back, and he's still steroid pumped, politically incorrect, violent and totally over the top.

Duke Nukem Forever sees a jaded Duke drunk with fame and glory. But yet again, Earth is invaded by Aliens, this time intent on taking all the women on the planet. Duke Nukem of course has to save the day.

This first person shooter (FPS) promises all the alien blasting thrills we are used to, as well as a heavy dose of comedy interaction and plenty of mini-games to play on the way. Duke Nukem Forever looks like a lot of fun to play, although it's not as advanced as more modern FPS titles. Can Duke Nukem Forever compete with the similarly testosterone filled new kid on the block Bulletstorm?

It's clear that the broad humor in Duke Nukem forever will not be to everyone's taste, and the game has already caused some controversy. Can a game which begun life over 12 years ago still compete in today's gaming world? Duke Nukem Forever in 2011 has to compete with well rounded characters, and in a market with a much broader demographic. The demo requires Steam.

If you miss the days of muscle bound heroes, Duke Nukem Forever could be the game you are waiting for. However, it may be that times have changed too much for this aging title.
