LoadedInc - 8/10 - Loadedinc Recommends
"Its great to see a platformer make its way onto the
PC and theres probably no better character other than Duke
to pull it off. Even though the game has no multiplayer, would be
pretty hard to do, the game is very enjoyable. The action is fast,
addictive and you do want to keep playing to reach the next section
which is always a good sign. "
"Overall DNMP is well worth a look, its fun, addictive,
the voice of Duke is superb and another important deciding factor
is the game sells for a very reasonable £19.99"
