Review by Forge on April 18-2013

A destroyed EDF base.
There are signs of destruction and war all about; holes blown into walls, partially collapsed structures, craters, and debris lying strewn about the landscape. What's left of the base is a few control and storage rooms, and a large open docking bay. Everything is dim and gloomy, there's a storm outside, and all the dark metallic and concrete structures just shout long abandoned and collapsing to its foundation. Prominent architecture and grey on grey textures compliment the atmosphere, and the strong shading along with ambient sounds complete it.
The layout is hub styled with the outdoor area and first room of the main facility acting as the central locations and the rest of the sections of base being the spokes that radiate out.

Game play is a key card hunt.
Only a few areas of the map are open for exploration. As keys are found the player is required to back track through the hub to get to the lock.
Enemy engagements start out challenging and maintain that level of difficulty throughout.
Duke begins with just a pistol and is almost instantly engaged from snipers and drones. The weapons supplied are basic, acquired at a slow pace, and as the firearms get better the enemy get tougher and more numerous.
Healing items are given out in large doses, but they're few and far in between. By the time they're found, every point is needed.
