The Ultimate 360° Deathmatch

An experiment gone wrong caused an uncontrollable fusion reaction to rip through the earth leaving nothing more than a lifeless husk. Devoid of atmosphere and bathed in the searing radiation of the sun, the planet has been condemned. You are among the Forsaken few who invade the abandoned settlements to collect what little fortune was left behind.

A 3D Acceleration card is not required to play Forsaken

Features:

  • Breathtaking real-time lighting
  • 360° of fluid fighting motion
  • Vicious multi-player dogfighting
  • Precise control in any direction
  • 15 of the Universe's most cursed scavengers

Advanced Particle Technology: Falling ceilings crush you. Needle tipped spikes spring from the wall. Webbed lightning forces a burning escape. Turbine fans suck you in... your only hope to save yourself is to blast the moving blades.

25 BF Weapons: Flame-spewing petro-gel rifles, heat seeking camera-mounted missiles, gravity distorting warheads, floating missile platforms, subversive mines and more.

Reviews:

PC Gamer, August 1998

"...here I am, now hopelessly sucked into this incredible shooter. You know how sometimes a game causes you to rationalize not sleeping or eating for days on end? 'Nuff said.

"The background story is pure silliness (and doesn't even attempt to explain why the box is adorned with a naked tattooed woman), yet once you've taken your first spin, you'll hardly care about any of that. You take the role of a high-tech space looter complete with an armed hover bike, and your mission to find gold bars in the claustrophobic innards of an Earth long since condemned..."

"The 3D menu interface is slick and pretty, hinting at the graphical richness to come in actual play, and it offers a good level of customizability over most aspects of the game...."

"Descent players will immediately feel a powerful sense of deja vu. Your bike is a free floating craft unaffected by gravity, most of your enemies are robotic, your surroundings are twisting, maze-like tunnels, and your weapons are quite different from the usual assortment of rifles and rocket launchers found in so many other shooters. Control is responsive - the extent of which depends on the bike you choose - and after a few minutes of floating around, it will begin to feel totally natural. An auto-leveling option helpfully keeps you right-side up making it easier to not get lost, but you can turn it off for total 360-degree freedom of movement."

"Forsaken scores its highest mark in the playability department; the gameplay is totally addictive. The action is fast and furious, and the single-player missions are varied just enough to keep the game interesting without detracting from the mayhem..."
