Duke Nukem: Zero Hour

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Nido Duke Nukem, the wise cracking renegade marine we've come to know and love. If you hated the gameplay of Duke Nukem 64 but loved the attitude, this game is for you. If you're into third person shooters, this game is for you. If you enjoy action, this game is for you. And if you want an overall excellent gaming experience, then this game is definitely for you.

Graphics: 5 out of 5

The graphics of Duke's world are detailed down to the writing on the neon light of Duke Burger, and the animation goes as far as enemies having limbs and sections of body literally blown off in a polygon blood feast. The rendered character models are smooth and clean, providing a fresh, relieving view at excellent appeal.

Music and Sound: 4 out of 5

The blaring sounds of a Claw-12 Shotgun or the pounding beats of the wild west pump through your speakers, brining about the ultimate setting of a true gaming mood. The low toned music and plentiful sound effects blend perfectly into the setting, both performed at just the right levels to set the atmosphere of play very well indeed.

Game Challenge: 5 out of 5

No matter how alert you are, an alien horde will always be blasting you from behind. The enemies are strong and many, brining a real plethora of opposition to your feet. From rocket launching ground turrets to shotgun totting alien cops, the armies seem to fly at you in primal rage, and the multiple assortment of tough jumps, slick moves, long courses and confusing maps can bring about quite an obstacle at hand.

Game Play-Fun: 4 out of 5

The gameplay is excellent, the action plentiful and strong. However, the high difficulty may reduce the fun of all of it, and the seemingly endless levels may at times prove to be a bit of a bore. Still, the pounding emotion of the game's settings pull through, engrossing the player in the simulated world of Duke Nukem.


My main negative point with this game was the difficulty. Some points of play seem nearly impossible, and the swarms of enemies can at times overwhelm even the best of players. The controls also seemed a bit awkward at times, and the use of the D-Pad and analog combined proved to be a bit of a waste.

Replayability: 3 out of 5

While excellent in all ways the first time through, the concept remains straight up and solid, providing little as for secrets to be found or side quests to be made. Fun the first time, but look for something new come your third or so time beating it.

Overall: 4.4 out of 5

This is an excellent action shoot 'em up game, full of blood, gore, guns, and even the women. Some younger players or the easily offended may dislike the crude comments of the Duke, but others will find it a suiting role for the alien destroyer, setting the perfect mood all the more. An overall great game, but if you can beat it completely with a rental, think twice before buying.
