Duke Nuken 3D - Free

Just noticed Duke Nukem 3D went free. I use to love the computer game, off to find wifi.

Don't even bother. Like All MachineWorks games (even the recent steaming pile that is Painkiller) the controls are absolute crap. It's utterly unplayable.

Just fiddle with the controls, I already beat the whole game just fine.

I agree the default controls blow but with some tinkering the game is very very playable

Never played it before, but it sounded cool in theory.

It wasn't that bad. Just take some time to find what works for you.

I've actually played a psp homebrew of this game made by someone in their bedroom that's far more playable than this port, the controls really are atrocious it's not even worth downloading for free use the space for something else.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

I tried, Lord knows I've tried. You must be extremely patient.

The controls suck, but there's no reason not to pick it up for free. I've blown a few hours on it already.
