About the GameDuke 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.
- 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.

This recommendation is the same as the one for first Duke Nukem. The game is filled with even more awesome and the guys at Apogee/3D Realms did a fantastic job making this game feel like a huge advancement over the previous.

Time hasn't been a friend of this game even though I fondly remember this from the ancient times of PC gaming. Biggest flaw is definitely the area you can see around the character since there's no way telling what is ahead and you simply end up shooting all the time to avoid enemies. Without this I could imagine myself playing this game (still) but it just isn't good enough to spend time with like this. Only purchase this if it's a "retro thing" you just HAVE to own. Otherwise get some other platformers like Shank (for violent platforming) or Tiny Barbarian DX (for those retro cravings).
