About the Game

Duke Nukem is back. Captured by an alien foe in the middle of promoting his best-selling book, “Why I’m So Great”, Duke must once more defeat the forces of evil to save himself from the knowledge-stealing Rigelatins, and ultimately prove his book’s namesake. In this sequel to the 1991 high-octane, bot-busting video game, Duke Nukem, the King of Action must blast, cannon, missile and flame his way to victory - a victory that would stop the secrets of both ass-kicking and bubblegum from falling into the wrong hands.

Key Features:

  • Never Put a Good Duke Down: The sequel to 1991’s Duke Nukem and precursor to 1996’s Duke Nukem 3D, Duke Nukem II is a pivotal part of the legendary Duke Nukem saga.
  • I’ll Be Back: Absent from Duke Nukem II’s original release, Duke has been retrofitted with sun glasses for a third dimension of coolness in a two dimensional-world.
  • Don’t Try This at Home: Always the consummate professional, Duke must collect power-ups, fly space fighters, and drink six-packs to escape the clutches of his evil alien captors.
  • Damn... I’m Lookin’ Good!: Powered by 1993’s state-of-the-art, you’ll-think-you’re-actually-there cutting-edge technology, Duke Nukem II features vivid, lifelike, parallaxing graphics and speaker-breaking digitized sound effects.
  • Variety Is the Spice of Death: Kill things dead across 32 levels of action-packed mayhem. Super bosses, mutations, robo-droids, guards and traps await Duke’s destruction.
  • You Know Duke Nukem, Right?: A hero so badass they named a series of video games after him.

Reminds me the early days of my gaming life. Not the best, but not the worst.

Some games from your childhood are best left there. I got DN2 purely for the nostalgia factor and man was I disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the animations/ sounds/ weapons/ etc are all a great time-machine to take me back to the 90s. The problem is the game is just as hard as I remember it. I thought I was just young and bad with a keyboard/mouse but even playing the thing now, it's basically stupid hard. The main problem is the FOV, it's so limited that by the time you see a threat its already killed you. Immensely frustrating, not worth your time or money.

Generic and uninspired. It starts off surprisingly well with a humerous cutscene showcasing Duke's egocentric personality and the absurdity of the series, but the gameplay has very little to offer unless you grew up with it.

HI. Would like more the same please. It is a good game. First had a " go " when it was downloaded from a "3D Realms " shareware in the late nineties. Only played the first level because i was too busy laughing at being killed. Now i play it almost every day. No " blood and guts " just a honest game that has stood the test of time.

Duke 2, when the man started to evolve into the Duke you know and love today. Duke II holds up great in 2013 and it's FINALLY ON STEAM! AND WITH SUNGLASSES!
