Duke Nukem 3D will be the Xbox Live Arcade addition today, and will cost 800 MS Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60) to download.

The game, a real Sean Connery of shooters, pitches hard-man Duke against waves and waves warthog-like alien baddies. His tools of the trade are shotguns, pipe bombs, and rocket-propelled grenades (if you can find it - use the jetpack!). And his vices are scantily clad ladies plus a potty mouth responsible for some gravelly adult quips.

Most exciting is the online deathmatch bundled with the Xbox Live Arcade reincarnation, although there are the usual Achievements to hanker after, leaderboards to climb and improved presentation to admire.

One of the stand out games of the past if you ask us, and we'll be bringing you our Duke Nukem 3D review as soon as possible.
