Descent is a highly advanced first person shooter boasting six degrees of freedom. One of the few games in its class to allow the player full freedom in moving up and down, left and right, backwards and forwards. Players control a ship as they move through levels in both single player and multiplayer modes, using a wide variety of both energy cannons and missiles to defeat opponents.
Prepare To Start Your Descent.
Sensory overload in 360° 3-D.
Welcome to Descent™ - 30 levels of the most mind-bending, stomach-churning action game ever. Featuring true 3-Dimensional worlds with light source shading, texture mapping, 3-D morphing, directional sound effects and sizzling music, this is technology taken to the limit.
You begin deep below the surface of Lunar Base I where an unknown alien race has taken over the chasm of the Post-Terran Mining Corporation. Lunge straight down mine shafts, twist around never-ending tunnels and fight your way past robotic menaces in an environment that's truly 360° 3-D... move up, move down, shoot everything everywhere. Hang onto your senses (and your lunch) as you drop straight down mine shafts on a ride that'll leave you spinning.
And what's the good of losing your mind if you can't share the experience with your friends? Descent invites you and your buddies to dive into the action together with head-to-head combat and cooperative two-player modem and eight-player network support.
You're going down... again.
If you thought Descent™ went to the edge of 360° 3D power-blasting sensory insanity, then prepare yourself. You're about to plunge over the edge, and into the depths of Descent II™.
Suddenly warped into the outer reaches of the Zeta Aquilae System, your new mission sends you into the black depths of treacherous alien mines. You blast through enemy robots with powerful new tools, leaving their flaming hulks in your exhaust. Your ultimate goal: to exterminate the alien robot stronghold from the enemy Alien Base and claim total control -- it's 30 new levels of outrageous destruction.
But this time, you're not alone.
Joining you on your deadly new assignment is your loyal Guide-bot. This faithful companion rushes with you through the twists and turns of the menacing darkness, often scouting ahead to hunt down the orbs, powerups and tools you desperately need to complete your job. But beware -- raging enemies are still determined to destroy you, including the menacing Thief-bot who's set on stealing your weapons of destruction and precious powerups. Get ready -- Descent II™ is about to take you on a whole new synapse-smashing ride.
The gut-wrenching Descent™ saga continues with more pulse-pounding action than ever before. Dive into massive subterranean strongholds and experience a whole new degree of freedom, as you careen through canyons and craters on the surface above... powered by the all-new Fusion™ engine.
Test your piloting skills against an army of battle-drones and assault-bots using an extensive arsenal of tactics and heavy firepower.
Immerse yourself in the wonders of the Descent universe, filled with new friends and old enemies, as the plot twists and turns with each daring mission. Prepare yourself for an explosive new 3D action experience that will turn your world INSIDE... OUT!
Over 30 cunning robots and 20 merciless weapons.
