The ridiculously titled Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour releases today on PC and console and it's yet another chance for people to either A) experience classic Duke Nukem for the first time, or B) take a trip down memory lane and relive what gaming used to be like in the 90s.

I've played Duke Nukem 3D countless times on multiple platforms over the years so what drew me to this release wasn't the nostalgia factor but the fact that Gearbox have added a brand new chapter to the game, called Alien World Order.

It features eight new maps set in various locations around the globe and they were all created by the original designers of Duke Nukem 3D, Allen Blum III and Richard "Levelord" Gray. So you can be sure they'll be packed with hidden areas, Easter eggs and early 90s references that no one under 30 will understand.

I played through the Amsterdam based first level in the video below, so do check it out for some brand new Duke Nukem 3D gameplay, a demonstration of Gearbox's True 3D Rendering mode that let's you toggle between the original look and some new and improved graphics and also the console cheat mode. No clip FTW!

Watched that? Then let us know your thoughts about the Duke in the comments below. Is he a lovely retro treat or a relic that should have been retired a long time ago (or after Duke Nukem Forever at least)?
