As the new Duke Nukem Forever is out for consoles and PCs, there is the view that it is needed on the Apple iPad iOS.
In an article by Tim Conneally on betanews his general review was the idea of Duke Nukem Forever coming out on a console first was stupid. Not that it is a bad game but just on the wrong platforms. Duke Nukem Forever by 2K Games is the latest in the Duke Nukem series.
As far as first person shooters go this is not a bad game. Near the start you get to bring down a spaceship with massive laser gun, you also get to drive a remote controlled car to gain certain game upgrades. At one point, you will shrink to about the size of an action toy and have to move obstacles to flee rooms.
With great puzzle games, this is a fun game but lacks the capabilities available with touch screen devices. An example is given as to gaining ego points by doing a finishing move, playing pinball, shooting balls through hoops and hitting a bag to get you ego up; this would all seem easier by movements instead of buttons.
At one point to obtain ego points you, have to sign an autograph, with a console this feature is not an easy or preferable task. The mini games will also show a need for touch screen capabilities. Maybe many first person shooters have the qualities ideal for devices like the iPad. By the looks of it, Duke Nukem Forever is definitely one.
Do you think Duke Nukem Forever is better suited to the touchscreen or do you prefer the feel of the console? For more details, head over to betanews.com.
