Default The last boss is the same as the first

How totally f*cking lazy. You just have to shoot him down three times instead of once. I was expecting something even bigger and more bad-ass, but no, it's the Cycloid Emperor. Again. No reskin or anything, just exactly the same boss that you fight at the start of the game.

And then Duke somehow manages to survive a nuclear warhead, just so they can take the piss out of Modern Warfare in the limpest way possible. You know how they could have done that better? Give Duke all the guns and have him make a joke about USMC pussies only being able to carry two.

That would have been funny. That would have had a point. That would have been what Duke Nukem would do. But no, we just get toothless jokes about pig cops and a totally irrelevant gag about Halo.

Also, anyone notice how Duke can swear in the game but we can't swear here?

....have you even played Duke Nukem 3D? Duke always picks on the gaming hero of the day, in 3d it was the doom guy.

I enjoyed the final boss, but yeah, pretty lazy. And it was about as easy too, just longer. And yes, the ending was fine but similarly lazy: I mean, what's the drama in the nuke being dropped if he survives it anyway? Kinda funny considering he easily dies from some lame pigcop, and he survives the bad-ass nuke.

Isn't it also explicitly stated that these were the same aliens from DN3D? I knew who the last boss was as soon as the president said he was in negotiations with him.

the first boss was on the duke video game console so its not really a in-game boss in my opinion

This.
Though I do think the final boss should have gotten his mental orb attack back which he had in DN3D, with the accuracy of Octabrains.

I thought it was epic! It's like the begining was just a taste of the last boss. A forboding of the awesome battle to come. The whole game was great. The most fun I had with fps since Half Life 2.

Didn't they leave out the overloard? Instead of fighting the overlord it's another battlelord.

Yeah I liked the final fight, it would have been good with a different boss but I got no problem with how it ended. That leaves more for the sequel and DLC
