Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project Previews

We have a couple of Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project previews available for you today. Don't know what Manhattan Project is? Check out the official site at this page.

The first preview is from HomeLAN. Their preview includes screenshots, quick remarks, and some cool quotes. Here's a sample:

After adjusting to the fact that I was playing a side scrolling game that doesn�t even require a mouse to play, I felt myself going back to 1996 and playing Duke Nukem 3D for the first time. The mutant animals, the babes, the humor, and the Duke 'tude..it was all there in this title.

If you are expecting DN: MP to be another first person shooter, however, you may be in for a shock as the game is in fact a 3D side scrolling title. However, since the first two Duke Nukem games were also side scrollers the new game is a bit of a return to his roots.

The second preview is from elited.net. Their preview has pretty much the same type of things in the other preview. Check out a bit of what elited.net had to say..

The fact that the developers were able to make a game style from the old days still fun and enthralling says a lot, not only about them but also Duke Nukem.

Duke Nukem begins the game with his Golden Eagle Pistol and picks up stronger ammunition along the hunt for Morphix. Weapons include a Golden Eagle Pistol, Shotgun, Assault Rifle, Pipe Bomb, G.L.O.P.P. Ray, Pulse Cannon, Pneumatic Rocket-Propelled Grenade Launcher and the Mighty Boot kick which are utilized by Duke in fending off the scum.

The gameplay is fun and exciting and gamers will find that they can adapt to the controls easily. DNMP looks as well as it plays...
