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.

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!

Tough and fun. This classic game is so much fun. The way it plays is good and the action is really cool. Definately not the easiest game but you will have a great time. You should really pick this up. Especially if it is on sale!

As a little kid, I always loved this game and I still love it. This is fast paced action 2D Platforming at its best. The levels are hard, but not impossible.Controls are great, music is great and there's just a sense of Adrenaline in this game.
There are minor issues with the game. Duke walks really fast and the screen can't keep up, resulting in enemies seemingly popping up out of nowhere.

And also, I remember Duke not wearing any sunglasses. Those didn't came until Duke 3D. Why they decided to have the sunglasses on in this version is beyond me. Duke doesn't need the sunglasses to be Duke. I know it's a minor detail, but I guess you can compare to George Lucas changing minor things in the original Star Wars trilogy. It doesn't make it worse, it's just annoying.

But when it comes down to it. This is an excellent game and well worth the price.

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