...Seeking Not to Conquer, But to Destroy...
Myth: The Fallen Lords is the first real-time strategy game set in a truly 3D world. For the first time a game of battle actually looks and feels like you're down in the trenches, hand-to-hand with the enemy. The game's 3D engine supports an ultrarealistic physics model, so that arrows arc gracefully and bounce off armor and limbs fly through the air trailing gore. No detail is spared in bringing the action of a fantasy battlefield to bloody life, and the unrestricted point of view lets you rotate, zoom and view the carnage from any angle.
You command many types of warriors, from a handful to hundreds at a time, who battle with fire, steel and supernatural powers. Their enemy: the Fallen Lords, a band of ancient and terrible sorcerer-generals who lay waste to the land with legions of vicious beasts and the tireless undead. Surviving them requires quick reflexes, tactical cunning and ruthless determination. You must use the terrain to your advantage, maintain discipline over the troops and deal with the mounting horror as the eternal cycle of mythic bloodshed begins anew...
A wide variety of smoothly sloping 3D terrains are the setting; rainy swamps and thick forests, ruined cities and snowy mountain passes, landscapes as deadly as they are beautiful.
Fortified with Realism
The ground is charred and cratered by explosions, water splashes and reflects your passage, dropped weapons and scraps of armor litter the battlefield, explosions ripple the ground and heads roll downhill.
The troops are yours to charge and retreat, wheel through maneuvers and charge into the bloody fray. Flexibility and discipline are key to survival.

boot Magazine, February 1998
"The luxuriant spectacle of Myth: The Fallen Lords takes the genre of real-time strategy games to new heights. Emphasizing the rush of bloody combat over intensive resource management, Bungie has forged one of the most spectacular (and gory) physics engines around. Lobbing a grenade into an oncoming horde will smear miasma across the field, leaving bouncing heads, flailing arms, and thick streams of blood. Few games can match the undiluted gore and devastation of a long battle in Myth. The spoors of war are permanent stains to the battlefield, with severed limbs, arrow shafts, and bodies strewn about."
"...A whopping 1,500 sprite-based troops can be used as fodder to add to the grisly pile of fallen warriors. Troop animations, however, are choppy, with an average of 6 frames per sprite. Control of these troops is particularly arduous, due to an awkward 30-degree camera angle and roughshod troop selection and positioning control. In addition, the single-player game is excessively difficult, sure to infuriate neophyte games..."
"A visual delicacy compromised only by its coarse interface, Myth is so very close to kicking ass. A compelling storyline, impressive graphics, and some of the goriest battles ever seen make Myth a contender for the crown of real-time strategy games. The finesse of fine control may be missing, but the epic spectacle of Myth delivers addictive gameplay with some innovative graphics."
