ESRB gives North American release of 3D Realms side-scrolling action game spin-off an M rating for blood, gore, violence.
In March, the Korean Game Rating Board revealed an Xbox Live Arcade rerelease was in the works for the 2002 PC game Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project. Today, gamers received another sign of the game's imminent arrival on Microsoft's console, as the Entertainment Software Rating Board added an Xbox 360 version of Manhattan Project to its ratings database.
Originally developed by Sunstorm Interactive and published by Arush, Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project received a positive critical reception upon its release. The game featured eight episodes, through which Duke goes about rescuing exotic dancers while grappling with mutated wildlife.
As is common with no-frills rereleases of older games, the ESRB did not provide a detailed ratings description for Manhattan Project. However, it did list 3D Realms as the game's publisher and issued it an M for Mature rating with content descriptors for "blood and gore" and "violence."
The evidence for an Xbox Live Arcade rerelease of Manhattan Project goes beyond the ratings board tip-offs. Last November, GamerBytes got wind of a Microsoft programmer's LinkedIn profile indicating the 3D side-scrolling shooter was headed for the Xbox 360's online platform. However, that mention has since been removed.
This is kinda random. out of the 1000s of classic PC games to port to XBLA they pick one that wasn't even on that list or even the list next to it. Are they going to port Daikatana to XBLA next?
Why didn't they include any shots from Duke Nukem Zero Hour in the video? That game was awesome. I got Duke Nukem 3D on GOG recently and installed the HD pack. Game looks awesome dude. :D Friggin classic man. And plus with emulators I can play Zero Hour on my computer as well. I SERIOUSLY still hope they make new Duke Nukem games. And DNF was ACTUALLY on track til 3D Realms went under. Hope it still comes out because the newest footage from the game looked fantastic.
To bad that clip didn't shout the classic one liner from the arcade, "Don't have time to play with myself." Hilarious in context.
Duke Nukem is a classic if there ever was one... but Manhattan Project was kinda disappointing. It was OK I guess, but it just didn't have the Duke feel to it.
Funny because I didn't remember Duke Nukem to be that advanced. Usually it's the other way around, meaning when I see golden oldies I get dissapointed.
I'd be willing to buy it just for the one liners :) Need to go play DN:3D now, gotta love XBLA right?
You can pretty much get "HD' graphics in the PC version by altering the resolution to 1920x1080.... which is probably all they're gonna do to the Xbox port.
just give up on Duke Nukem....most people who even know who it is dont play games any more, and there hasnt been one since like N64 days.
Playing Xbox One games on somebody else's console will also require a check-in every hour. Full Story
