I'm still getting "Steam servers are too busy" errors. Two days later. Thanks, Steam, for not even allowing me to play the game I purchased.

maybe try setting a different location? ( in Steam client prefs)
Mine came down in a little over 30 minutes.

Still doing it. But I did find some suggestions on the Steam message boards. Trying those now.

So, you're giving the game 1/2 stars because steams servers are being slow? Which sometimes happens towards the end of the week. Usually the slowdown dosen't last that long. Are you sure it's not your internet connection that's slow?

Why is this game so bad? One word answer... STEAM!

Steam, which you have to run to even install and/or launch the game, has a UI the is confusing and difficult to navigate. It opens ports in to you machine you no longer have control over and take up resources you just don't need.

All in all while I really like Duke the Steam take all the flavor out of him!!!

Haven't played it yet. Wish there was a demo so I could test if this would be playable on the road on my 11" Air (doubtful at best, I know)
I think it's great that the Duke is back, though. This one may not live up to the hype, but that was impossible from the get go, after suffering the longest delay in gaming history.
Clearly there are going to be sequels though, and I'm happy to have the franchise on the Mac.

Simply deactivate dynamic shadows postfx and antialaising...

It's looking good and runs well at native res. on my MacBook Pro 13" 2010 (2.66. 4GB, 320M)

well, I went ahead and bought it. Still have no idea if this will run on the mba. The game will not launch, telling me I need to have Steam running.
I'm launching it from Steam, what's up with that?
Dual booted into Lion, redownloaded the thing, this is beginning to get annoying, the game is there, I paid for it, let me play it already :-(
To top things off, no matter what I try, Steam is refusing me logon credentials on my 27" iMac, so no go there either.
I'll withhold rating to see if this gets fixed in a timely manner, but I'm not amused, and all outa gum...

Well, turned out was Steam. Removing my entire Steam folder in ~/library/Application Support to desktop forced a clean setup. I then moved the Steam apps back into place. Steam was showing my games as not installed, but after pressing install, found them and then Duke launched.
I'm only in for a short bit, but my mid 2010 Air is holding up quite well. (1,4GHz, 128GB, 320m)

Though I ended up fixing it myself, props to Aspyr tech support also, who were very responsive, offering suggestions via email.

The game isn't worth the money. Maps are simple, gameplay isn't challenging, and the content is lackluster.

It's a basic first-person shooter at best. Nothing like the previous versions where you had challenging levels with hidden sections and rudimentary puzzles to solve.

It's more akin to a movie with mediocre visual effects and no plot. The game degrades itself into a pathetic first-person hooker-shooter.

You save $5 on a game that's not worth $5. Avoid this and save your money.

Great deal especially for europeans... 35$ >> 25,- EUR instead of 49,- EUR and a free gift!!

Steam is a great solution for gaming. Cheater safe multiplayer, cloud syncing savegames and multi platform solution.

Hello,

If I buy this game through macupdate (for the discount), then install it via steam, can I install the windows version on my windows box via steam? Or do I need to purchase the mac version directly from steam to get access to both versions?

If you're going to give a product 1 star, some details would be helpful. Of course, the same would apply to a 5-star rating.

Story

Did the Alien bastards not learn their lesson the first time? Duke has been on hiatus for some time now, kicking back and franchising himself on the fame he gained from saving Earth from the first invasion. The Aliens have returned to Earth yet again, messing up Duke's sweet routine of dirty leisure habits.

The Alien invaders are stealing Earth's women, especially the hot ones! And they drank Duke's beer. This. Won't. Stand. As Duke battles his way through waves of aliens, the once beautiful gambling haven and Duke Nukem franchise chains are crumbling before his eyes. Time to bring the pain!

Features
  • Bust a Gut: Duke pulls no punches. Duke's constant stream of hilarious one-liners throughout the game make this an out loud good time.
  • World Interactivity: Spend as much time as you want shooting hoops, lifting weights, playing pinball, pool, air hockey, and slots.
  • Scale & Variety: Packed with explosive FPS action, outlandish settings, driving, and puzzle solving


Full Requirements
  • 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo or faster
  • Steam
  • Mac OS X 10.6.8 or 10.7 or later
  • 2GB RAM, 10GB HD Space
  • 256MB VRAM; ATI Radeon 2600 or faster, or NVidia Geforce 8600 or faster
  • Initial installation requires one-time Internet connection for Steam authentication
