'Duke Nukem Forever' Now Available for Mac

by

Back in June, Aspyr announced that it would be bringing Duke Nukem Forever to the Mac. While the game has received generally poor reviews, there has still been a fair amount of interest in the title given that the game has been repeatedly promised over the past 15 years.


Duke Nukem Forever finally launched today for the Mac and is available via GameAgent and Steam for $39.99, but is also being offered through MacUpdate Promo for $34.99 through Sunday. The MacUpdate Promo offering also includes a free copy of Jets'n'Guns Gold.

Duke Nukem Forever is a Steam Play title, and thus allows users who purchase the title on one platform to play on other platforms for no additional charge.

Note: Purchases made through the MacUpdate Promo link financially benefit MacRumors.

Yes, it will.

Surprising that it does, considering that the minimum stated was the geforce 8600, and the intel isn't as powerful as that. I guess it'll run, but very slowly.


Why didnt they release it on the mac appstore and get rid of steam?

Steam is better for games than MAP. You can chat to your Windows gaming friends, whatever you buy on PC is free for Mac if it's available, and vice versa, join friends on multiplayer games, etc.

there's a lot of funny stuff on this game.. the quotes alone kept me entertained and laughing throughout the game.. the game is only worth it if you played DN 3D otherwise don't bother.. people don't seem to get the humor of it for some reason.

Even so don't expect much out of it.. having played the original a couple of times thru and many hours on multiplayer back with 56k i give this game a 7.5 for the humor alone.. the campaign it's meh..

Is this a brand new game or a remake?


New game. It's been in development for about 14 years :P

Well I loved my romp through it, much more enjoyable than silly games that try to be serious (Gears of War, etc). Not the best game by any stretch of the imagination but it has some great unique moments.

I loved Duke Nukem... When it first came out.

I am so glad to have tried the demo, because I was close to going out to buy it. After playing the first level, I knew this game wasn't good at all. The controls were terrible and the graphics, wow, the graphics were a joke. I enjoyed the gameplay from the original game more than I did with this one.

Or maybe I'm spoiled from how epic FPS games have become in the last 10 years. Actually no, I hate to say it... But this game SUCKED and should be AVOIDED. Sorry, Duke.
