I can not recommend this way to play Duke Nukem 3D. Not at all. Here's why:
1) Weird graphical changes such as the addition of distance fog. This just makes no sense to me as the game truly doesn't need it.
2) The mouse aiming is absolute garbage in this port. It's like the original mouse aiming that you had to deal with in the 90s when this game came out.
3) The way that the 3D rendering works is just weird, it's inverting the skyboxes and changing the depth of the textures, it's awful and a detriment to the experience.
4) The movement feels as if The Duke is drunk. It just doesn't flow and that's a massive detriment to this game.
However, the actual game is amazing and easily one of the best shooters of the time, just behind QUAKE, DOOM 1 and 2, and BLOOD. So, I suggest you use this beautiful little thing called Eduke32. Please, for the love of God, if you want to play this game, use Eduke32. Eduke32 is a source port that's been around for ages and it quite literally runs this game perfectly: its mouselook is amazing, its movement is on the spot, it has a polymost renderer if you're into that sorta thing, and the Duke voice isn't awful (I know you can set it to use the original audio samples that's why I didn't mention it earlier).
The only reason why you should download this is to access the .GRP file so you can play Eduke32. However, you can also just buy the Atomic Edition of the original game from this magic place called "Zoom Platform." This "Atomic Edition" has all the expansion packs, which this version doesn't for some reason (I think legally it can't, hence why, but I ain't a lawyer I'm more qualified to farm than I am to confirm that). Mind you, this Atomic Edition is only 6 bucks, not the 20 that this one costs.
Hopefully this miniature review-guide helps you decide which version to get, and whether you should take a chance with Zoom Platform instead of the much more credible Steam. In my opinion, however, it's probably best to get both because Eduke32 requires a bit of setup while this one is just download and enjoy; so, in the event that you can't fathom how to set up Eduke32 and can't figure out with the most comprehensive of readme files, then I suppose this version works.

Most fun you'll have with your clothes on.

you should buy this game but after you install it, go download the sourceport Eduke because this is not a good version of the game however is infact a good game

Review from Steam

I hate that this is good.
This is not the best way to play Duke Nukem. EDuke is superior. That said, this isn't bad. The new renderer lacks the charm of the original graphics but some levels do just look better with it. The new levels are fantastic, even if the new enemies are pretty lame. This is not a waste of money if you do not already own some version of Duke Nukem 3D.
As a product however, it is extremely scummy. DLCs which use to be bundled with the game are nowhere to be found, and before listing this version of steam the far more complete and faithful megaton edition was delisted from Steam. Gearbox sucks mule chode and there's a good reason everyone hates Randy Pitchford.
That said, if you don't want to obtain a decades old game extralegally, this isn't your worst option. A part of me wishes this port sucked as much the business behind it so I could simply downvote it and move on.

Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour (That's a long name) is an official remaster of Duke Nukem 3D (1997), which is a mixed bag honestly considering the port's flaws. Others may call this edition the "Cursed Randy Edition". It's still a huge classic.
"I'm gonna get medieval on your asses - Duke Nukem
Pros:
- About ~15 hours to finish all episodes, but it differs with each player's playstyle
- Graphically it is the same as the original, but now it has a "True 3D rendering" upgrade, which makes the game visually more appealing with extra lighting added.
- The difficulty felt great and challenging (I played the entire game on "Come Get Some" difficulty)
- The soundtrack is great, most of them at least.
- Duke's voicelines are re-recorded in full clarity and you have the option to switch between having the legacy Duke talk or the re-recorded version.
- Most guns are great to use, even better if you combine them
- Episode 5, that comes bundled with this edition is toptier.
- Steam workshop support (Maps)
Neutral:
- Episode 4 "The Birth" is the most frustrating episode in the game. In most maps, you'll find yourself running left and right and pulling up guides. The maps look great and unique however. It's a mixed bag.
Cons:
- Using the mouse feels sluggish and unresponsive. I could not fix it. Apparently, it is tied to the framerate and you could fix it by unlocking the frames using your graphics driver as there is no other way to solve it, but that did not work for me.
- Using the mouse wheel to switch weapons also feel very sluggish
- The "playback" feature is horrendous, it's just hot garbage. It'll just appear out of nowhere saying that you've died, but in reality you just walked 2m forward. Just turn it off as soon as you boot up the game.
- Saving and loading a save feels slow and janky, There is no built in quicksave and quickload in the game, which is very awkward in a game like this.
- In Episode 4, you are mostly fighting against "Protector drones", and after a while it just gets lazy and monoton.
I give it an 8/10 considering the fact that this port is piss poor with some aspects that are actually great. I could recommend it on a sale as 19.99$ is a bit steep.
