From a visual and gameplay standpoint, I absolutely hated Doom and Duke Nukem because of the stiff/vertically non-existent aiming.

Being able to play these classic games with PROPER controls is a game changer to me. Especially with motion aiming it should become a whole new experience and way more enjoyable.

I'm also hype for the local wireless multiplayer. This should be sick. It's like a mini-LAN. You don't even need to bring your monitors.

"A masterpiece to this day, Duke Nukem 3D is done proud by this Switch conversion. It looks and runs briliantly, the online options are a welcome inclusion and it's not compromised in any way from its earlier console release. It's a shame that a handful of previously-available expansion packs are missing, but given the low price of World Tour Edition, it feels churlish to complain. In the words of the Duke himself, come get some."

9/10
