The vertigo continues as the highly anticipated sequel to Descent I and II takes the mind-bending, pulse-pounding experience to another level! This time around, you will experience not only the same frenzied, subterranean shooting action, but also the thrill of flying out of the mines into the planetary atmosphere; where you can soar above the surface of the planet, engage in combat with enemy air and ground forces and use 10 new, lethal weapons to obliterate the most sophisticated robots to date!

Descent 3 reviews and comments

Hello Community, first of all I have to say that I have owned the Game since Release as an original Hard Disc And have played through some times over the Years. I think the Game is great, despite the overtaxing Controls. But you can also do without a few of these Controls. For example, the one where you can rotate around your own X-axis. Slides isn't necessarily required, either. Just nice to have. But the Reason for my poor Rating is the missing German File for Voiceover, HUD and Subtitles that the Developers have handed over To Steam here. It is quite present in the Original and only a few mb or kb tall. Very poor Performance.

What Is Descent? Descent is the Name of a Series of Computer Games from the 1990S. These are 3D shooters in which the Player controls a Spaceship in Cars from an ego perspective and shoots down enemy Robots (according to the Single Player mode). In Multiplayer mode, you play in different Game modes or with each other. (Everyone versus everyone, Team versus team or together against Robots) more info about Multiplayer can be found here. Descent1 was the first Computer Game in 1994 with a non-limited-design 3D maze and free Mobility of the Player-controlled Unit in three Axes and six Directions. The Game was designed for DOS also appeared for the PlayStation and later ran on Windows 95/98. Meanwhile, exiled Due to the Source code Opening of Descent1 and Descent2 Also opensource Modifications which have the same Gaming pleasure at essential essential Enable Improved Graphics to enable OpenGL on Linux, Winows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and Mac OS. (The Gameplay and The Game Files have not been changed) More Info & download link at: DXX-Rebirth. Descent2 was launched two years later, was also written as a DOS program, but was enfalls played via a Patch on Win95/98. There was also a PlayStation version, which was released in America under the Name "Descent2 Maximum." This renaming seemed necessary for legal reasons only in America, for the same reason the Playstaion Descent2 version also contains levels other than the PC variant. In The meantime, Descent2 also has the possibility to Play on the latest Operating Systems using DXX Rebirth. Descent3 is the latest Game in the Descent series and is regularly played by us and many others. The Game, which appears In 1999, runs without problems on current Operating Systems, but there are a few things to consider, so Descent ³ (especially when Configuring the Settings under "Setup") is to run in adminestrator mode to ensure flawless Operation. In Multiplayer mode, about 50-80 Servers run continuously, at least one of them also with Bot's (= players emulated By the Server). These "Bots" are difficult to compare with real Players from a Play-paying point Of view, but they can also offer a good Ab-vex treatment. [wink] Despite being an outdated game by today's Standards, it has created a small But loyal Fan base that still meets for online games, created new Levels and organises LAN parties twice a year and twice a Year
