    Default Duke Nukem 3D home console ports released in the 1990's.

    Duke Nukem 3D is a first-person shooter released in 1996 for the PC (MS-DOS). It was developed by 3D Realms/Apogee Software, Ltd. It was later released on some home console systems such as the Sony PlayStation (developed by Aardvark Software), the Nintendo 64 (developed by Eurocom), and the Sega Saturn (developed by Lobotomy Software). The MS-DOS PC, Sony PlayStation, and Nintendo 64 versions were published by GT Interactive, while the Sega Saturn port was published by Sega. There was also a port for the Sega Mega Drive. The Sega Saturn and Sega Mega Drive versions are named Duke Nukem 3D, while the Sony PlayStation and Nintendo 64 versions are known as Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown (the PAL PS1 version is just titled Duke Nukem) and Duke Nukem 64. The MS-DOS PC version utilized Ken Silvermanís Build engine, while the Sega Saturn version used the SlaveDriver engine. (I donít know what engines the Sony PlayStation, Nintendo 64, and Sega Mega Drive versions used. If anybody knows, please tell me.) Iím just wondering what the forum members here think of the previously mentioned Duke Nukem 3D ports.

    Here are some older comparison videos I did for Duke Nukem 3D on the Saturn and PS1. At the link are the high quality DIVX videos, below are the typical blurrier Youtube videos.

    I believe the best 90's console port is the Saturn version. Lobotomy's engine allows you to lean and look up and down without the annoying distortion of the original engine that wasn't really 3D (just like other similar engines). Also, the lighting is improved and the frame rate is very smooth for the eye candy it offers.

    The only one that I have is for Sega Saturn. I played it lot back then, even played it by modem a lot. I think it's really good.

    Why does Duke Nukem 64 not have music playing during the levels?

    Did you factor in Netlink gameplay in your Saturn scores? It was some of the most fun I've had with multiplayer gameplay.

    I haven't used Netlink for Duke Nukem 3D on the Saturn.

    It also has unlockable "Jevon's Control", which is Turok-style movement.

    To this day, Saturn Duke 3D still blows me away graphically, it looks so good compared to 90% of the stuff on the system. The walls sparkle in that game, its got better lightning than both, the PS and N64 versions. I like its music better than the PS too. And the frame rate is so smooth and steady. Its even got reflections on the mirrors that the PS version doesnt have.

    Although i hear that the PS version is more faithful to the PC original.
    I like them in this order:
    1 Saturn
    2 Playstation
    3 Nintendo 64

    To me,the lack of music, and blurryness kill the N64 version. It doesnt help it that i havent been able to get used to that controller in almost 20 years. Its still a very good game, though.
