About

Welcome to the world of Descent - the amazing experience of 360° fluid 3D motion that is still unmatched. Plunge through mines that defy physics, blast your way past enemy robots and experience vertigo like never before. Arm yourself with deadly weapons and confront creatures with highly advanced artificial intelligence; they will plot, wait and ambush you from all sides.

You are about to embark on a new and exciting journey. One that will fill you with a sense of wonder and discovery. Light and sound will mix like a kaleidoscope to thrill you as never before. Spin 360° through twisting levels of mechanical monsters, deadly traps and hidden tunnels. Explosive 3D multi-directional sound effects and pulsing musical score will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Don't keep this feeling of nausea to yourself, go Head-to-Head with 2-player modem support or 8-player network and Tournament Mode. Brace yourself for the world of Descent... if you can handle it. Get them before they get you...Dynamic gameplay that is hard to match even by today’s standards A great musical score composed by artists such as Type O Negative and Skinny Puppy Challenging multiplayer modes
