Shoot 'Em Up
DUKE NUKEM FOREVER is the long-awaited first-person shooter game, in which Duke has to save the Earth once again from an invading alien force. The game was classified '18' for strong violence, sex, nudity, language & drug references.
At '15' the BBFC's Guidelines state 'Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury'. DUKE NUKEM FOREVER features frequent sight of blood during gameplay, as alien enemies are blasted by Duke. More powerful weapons, such as shotguns and rocket launchers, also have the ability to reduce enemies to bloody chunks of flesh. Alien and human bodies can also be damaged post-mortem, with weapons able to blast the limbs off enemies or decapitate them. This focus on the infliction of bloody injury was more appropriately classified at '18'.
The strong sex includes a 'cut scene' in which it is implied, without any clear detail, that Duke is receiving oral sex from two young women. In another level, a topless woman briefly lap dances for him, with the activity shown from Duke's point of view. However, there is no further nudity featured and no further sexual activity occurs on screen. This particular level takes place in a strip club, with numerous women shown topless as they walk around and dance on stage Sex references include signs for clubs such as 'Duke Nukem's Titty City Club' and magazines are occasionally found which show women topless or in their underwear. The game contains strong language throughout, as well as some milder bad language. Some crude humour is present, such as when Duke is shown to urinate into a toilet, with the player able to choose when to stop. Drug references include the use of steroids on the part of Duke at various points in the game.
