Ships Ahoy - Duke Nukem Forever: The Doctor Who Cloned Me

2K Games and Gearbox Software announce the release of The Doctor Who Cloned Me, the promised new DLC for Duke Nukem Forever, Gearbox's first-person shooter sequel. Word is: "The Doctor Who Cloned Me is bursting with hours of the over-the-top Duke goodness that fans love. Deep in the heart of Area 51, Dr. Proton has been hatching his maniacal plan. Fueled by new ego boosts, Duke is ready to take on evil clones, alien queens and anything else that comes his way in order to save the world and his babes! This full, new single-player campaign includes brand new weapons, all-new enemy types and bosses, more Achievements/Trophies and many more interactive items within the world." The pack also includes these four multiplayer maps:

  • Sky-High: The alien-infested corporate offices of Pooty, Inc. near the center of Las Vegas. This map includes three indoor floors taken over by the aliens and two rooftops, jump pads, stairwells, and building-to-building combat.
  • Command: EDF command center with an imprisoned BattleLord at its core! A two-level map featuring winding stairs, straightaway corridors, and jump pads.
  • Drop Zone: Rooftop of Duke’s Lady Killer Casino featuring indoor and outdoor combat and stairwells for platforming, an EDF dropship on landing pad, and a bottomless pit.
  • Biohazard: Fight in the Breston Plant Nuclear Power facilities and compete across multiple floors in locker rooms, restrooms with showers, control rooms, and the nuclear waste storage room.

does anyone actually play DNF multiplayer? From what I've seen and read, it's pretty awful.
Yes it is great classic fun. Try it and see, Duke Burger with shotguns is epic!

I keep reading this as something about Doctor Who.

Like the two weapon limit, the health regen and the QTEs?

They actually patched in the ability to carry 4 weapons. Sadly, the health regen and QTEs remain.

On a side note, does anyone actually play DNF multiplayer? From what I've seen and read, it's pretty awful.

I played until just after the Leroy Jenkins joke part. Then I got Fallout 3 in Steam and since then I am a happy evil wasteland slaver and never looked back to Duke again. Can't wait to the evetnual Skyrim price drop so I can become a badass melee only dragon butt kicker.

Don't know about the rest of you, but I enjoyed it. Yes, it was nostalgic, it was old school, and it was adolescent. Probably why I was smiling the whole way through.

DNF was a shitty game, and that's coming from someone who really wanted to love it. It had its moments, but if they had not made "Duke: Halo edition" it would have been a far better game.

This DLC would interest me if it played nothing like the base game.

I finished it & I was not disappointed. My expectations were not high going in given all it's been through in development.

I tried it for a few hours, a couple of times but got bored of it. I'm not sure why. I'm one of the few that actually liked Doom 3 and Quake 4 so I expected to at least blast through this and enjoy it 'for what it is'. But it didn't work for me.

Duke Nukem Forever was the only game I have paid full price for in about 5-10 years. It's difficult to tell because I use ebay a lot to get cheap games. And I paid full price for the steam copy! It was a Duke Nukem game and I enjoyed it - not as much as my younger self playing Duke 3d or Duke Nukem Zero Hour. But I don't enjoy games as much as my younger self because when you get older games take a back seat to more pleasurable things ;P. People always forget that. You can't play new games through the eyes of your child-self.

Can't wait to play this new DLC, the previous MP DLC was good - should have been free though. ALL DLC MP only (map packs) should be free.

I just had a child-self session with the Diablo3 beta yesterday....it ended so quickly though. I dont care what anyone else says its still Diablo, it still "feelt" like Diablo. Although the start is rather lame and WoW like, once you get to the cathedral its that same old feeling all over again....Fuck I cant wait for this beta to end...

Did anyone even finish this game?

Now, this could be your regularly scheduled snarky troll comment, as you're used to seeing in comment threads. But I'm actually serious: Everyone I know who tried it stopped at about a third in. Even the most tenacious couldn't get any further.

I can't bring myself to buy it. Even when it was like $7 a few weeks ago on Steam, I wasn't sure it was worth that.


I paid $30 for it, played it, and enjoyed it. I'd say it's worth $10 even to the skeptical, though. It's not a great game, but an okay one with some signs of age and some frustrating level design.

I have not finished DNF. It's just so hard when the entire game is so bland and stale. Plus the way damage is taken is really inconsistent and odd. It's quite annoying.

I just go back and play Duke 3D with a source port and some mods. Way better.

I finished DNF, and despite what most people say it wasn't an ordeal. It was a serviceable shooter with a few good parts.

Still though, they left lots of room for improvement in a sequel.

I finished it and enjoyed it. Pretty much agree completely with Dan Stapleton's 80% review in PC Gamer.

Gonna get this, but I'll wait to see if it pops up in a Steam Xmas sale first.
