** 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.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The first level of "The Birth" is called "It's Impossible", and it's theme is called "Missing Impossible", and it is (very) reminiscent of ''MissionImpossible'''s iconic theme.

* DemonicSpiders: The Inflatable Sea Monsters in Duke Caribbean relentlessly barrage you with missiles the millisecond you come into sight, usually from around a corner and with absolutely no warning. Thankfully, they go down with only one shotgun blast, but expect to do lots of SaveScumming.

** One of the "Duke Caribbean" levels has music that is very similar to the theme for ''Series/HawaiiFiveO''.

** In the Playstation Vita version, the final level of The Birth has an area where you can clip out of bounds with the help of those rotating gear-shaped things in the water. This counts as completing the level even though only the first half was completed, and will even give you the trophy for beating it. However, you'll be sent back to the cutscene from before entering the first level.

* OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight: Nuclear Winter is the least liked expansion pack, and the only one 3D Realms didn't make.

** Similarly, the kamikaze drones are equally as annoying and probably more dangerous.

** Similarly, the kamikaze drones are equally as annoying Sentry Drones. They explode on contact, they often hide right behind doors or around corners, they can take a lot of damage, they make [[MostAnnoyingSound irritating noises]], and probably more dangerous.they're ''everywhere''.

How is that not funny?
* DudeNotFunny: Episode 4 features a building where dogs are made into hamburgers (granted, Duke is NOT impressed), and a grocery store that sells meat made from baby seals and dolphins.
