SUMMARY: Los Angeles. Under attack by aliens intent on stealing our chicks for breeding. Duke Nukem springs into action dealing damage like only he can, making his "insightful" comments along the way. If you've never played a Duke game, this is your chance to see why he's been a fan favorite since 1991, with over 18 original Duke Nukem games since that time. Duke Nukem is not the typical faceless hero -- he's an in-your-face hero who has a personality that doesn't quit. Yes, it's a B-movie plot, but that's what makes it fun!

Duke Nukem 3D. This game set the world of shooters ablaze with its over-the-top main character and dirty toilet humor. Still regarded as one of the best shooters in its day, the game had made its debut onto the iPhone and now to the iPad. But let me tell you, it is bittersweet at its best. The game is known for its no-holds-barred take on shooters and alien invasions, offering a crass look into the life of a hero who just doesn\'t give a monkey\'s uncle.

Pair that with some over-the-top weaponry and stick it onto the best mobile gaming platform out there right now and you have gold right? Wrong. Anyone who has played Prey Invasion will know why this game fails hardcore. The controls are ridiculous. The game offers to customize the controls in a way that you don\'t see many offer, but it is still a broken system to begin with. The virtual joysticks make it nearly impossible to control the character and contribute to many frustrated moments. This is sad because such a great game deserves to be played.

Overall,this review was a painful one for me because this game was so much fun to play on the pc. The game is still the classic experience that it was all those years ago. But with the way it is set up currently, all the jokes found later in the game won\'t be experienced because we\'ll be too busy playing Wolfenstein 3D with decent controls.
