Duke Nukem Forever: The Doctor Who Cloned Me | Mini Review

What is it?

The Doctor Who Cloned Me is an add-on for the 2011 first-person shooter Duke Nukem Forever developed by Triptych Studios and developed by Gearbox Software. The DLC is a continuation of the plot in the main game. Duke Nukem has been held hostage in Area 51 by his arch-nemesis Dr. Proton, who is planning on creating an army of Duke-Bots to fight the alien menace and take over the world. Duke must stop him, and thwart a massive attack by the invaders who are invading the top secret labs below, and are even making their way to the moon.

Pros
Cons
More enjoyable and far less frustrating than the main game’s campaign.
Driving sections are kinda cool.
Some pretty swell fight scenes, especially on the surface.
Two new weapons and four additional multiplayer maps, all of which are good stuff.
More ego boosts to collect.
Still has a few boring sections that require a lot of walking or puzzle-solving.
Duke’s unfunny sidekick Dylan is back.
Dr Proton is defeated halfway through.
Fairly short, will take about 3 or 4 hours.
Multiplayer mode is plagued by tryhards, and the MP maps won’t pop up often.

Verdict:

The story mode in this DLC is vastly superior to the single player campaign in near-enough every way. There’s plenty of exciting gunfights and in between some half-decent driving sections. It’s not particularly long, and it does feel a bit padded out at times, but anyone who enjoyed Duke Nukem Forever should get an even bigger kick out of this. Anyone else won’t want to touch this for the simple reason that it’s still DNF.
