Inspired by the insanely popular 1994 game Descent by Parallax Software, Forsaken raises the ante on this exciting true 3D action genre. Designed to run optimally on 3D accelerator cards, Forsaken is a graphics tour-de-force, sporting some of the most stunning graphics at blistering frame rates seen in a 3D action game for its time.
The game's premise is simple: do whatever is required to loot and pillage the remains of our planet following a fusion experiement gone wrong. After choosing from one of 16 different wise cracking space pirates, mercenaries, or bounty hunters, the objective is to ride a jet-powered anti-gravity bike called the pioncycle through varied environments attempting to complete the missions assigned to you. Along the way, you amass a myriad of different weapons and powerups to better oppose the increasingly formidable opponents you'll face.
In addition to an entertaining set of single player missions, the game is equipped with extensive multi-player capabilities so that you can battle up to 30 friends over your office network or on the internet. ~ Paul Biondich, All Game Guide
