* OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight: Nuclear Winter is the least liked expansion pack, and the only one 3D Realms didn't make. It doesn't help that the first two levels are just remixed versions of ones from the base game.

* [[ThatOneLevel That One Episode]]: Episode 4 in the PS1 version (especially on [[IdiosyncraticDifficultyLevels Come Get Some]]) due to the shortage of ammo throughout the levels.

** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAC7t_JUlTA theme]] for "Freeway", a secret level in "Shrapnel City" episode has many parts similar to TheTerminator theme, just slower and more relaxed. In fact, this is the same level where you can find the crushed T-800 with his arm sticking out of the crusher, as a ShoutOut to the iconic ending of the first Terminator movie.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Url3QHHNKSA Here's]] the theme for Shop 'n' Bag from the Atomic Edition, which is basically a smoother, more jazzy version of the main theme.

** Episode 1, level 3 features a ridiculously-tricky segment where you have to jump and duck past a bunch of infrared laser sensors. If you hit one of the lasers, bombs go off and kill you instantly. Not to mention that some pig cops are on their way to kill you as well. And if THEY hit the lasers, it also triggers the explosions. Also, this is the ONLY level in any of the episodes, including the expansion packs, where you start with no weapons because the previous level saw Duke get captured by the aliens before he could hit its exit, and just for good measure, you also start in an electric chair that is turned on.

** The "Smithsonian Madness" level, from the ''Duke it Out in D.C.'' official expansion. Takes place in a gigantic museum complex with lots of floors, sprawling mazelike exhibits and tons of backstage tunnels. It's not a badly designed level by any measure, but its sheer length is enough to make it off-putting. To give you an idea, most levels' Par Times are in the 3-6 minute range, with a select few breaching 10 minutes. This one's Par Time is a whopping 23 minutes.

** Less so the MegaDrive port. It does have a pretty decent framerate, considering how big the "first-person view" screen is, compared to other [=FPS=] games on that console, not to mention the save system which allows you to backup everywhere. Nothing else makes up for it properly, though: the whole port consists of 9 new levels, very loosely based off the Lunar Apocalypse episode, all done in a [[VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D Wolf3D]]-like perspective, all peppered-up with barely audiable music and slightly messy controls. [[labelnote:*]]And that's not even for Duke himself: in order to pause the game, you will need to not just press the Start button, [[DamnYouMuscleMemory but also X, Y and Z,]] all at the same time![[/labelnote]] Oh, and it didn't help that shortly after the game was released in Brazil (the only country that received a Mega Drive port), the whole thing got banned.
