Ratings:

This is the Game You've Been Waiting For

You are a member of the HUNT, the High-risk United Nations Taskforce. Caught with your pants down on a routine surveillance mission, your only choice is to blaze through hundreds of armed soldiers, automatons, and undead, eluding traps at every turn. Explore huge levels (up to a million sq. ft. each) with realistic fog and lightning. Look up and down, spring off jump pads, fly, and more!

And so it begins: the all-out blood-fest. The unrelenting blood and fire rampage of your most twisted nightmares. With ten incredibly vicious weapons, you can shred enemies into barely recognizable meat (unless you turn the violence off). Giant panes of glass shatter before your might. Your machine gun blasts holes in the walls - sparks and metal fly as you blow apart virtually everything in sight. Never before have you been so free to destroy!

Features:

Advanced technology gives unmatched realism - graphic scenery with paralleling sky, fog and light diminishing effects, radiant light, lightning and other features never before seen in game graphics!

Reviews:

PC Gamer, June 1995

"In Rise of the Triad you explore more than 30 big levels, avoiding a huge assortment of hazards and, of course, slinging a lot of lead. It's those hazards that make Triad different - you'll have to dodge moving walls, rolling boulders, lava pits, flame jets, gas traps, and spinning columns of razor-sharp blades straight out of a Clive Barker movie. The game features a wealth of nifty items and weapons, too."

Computer Gaming World, December 1994

"A very user friendly product, this ambitious design allows for both two-player modem play and up to 11(!) players in network shoot-'em-ups. The texture mapping is slick and professional. Explosions and gunfire bursts have an aura of realism, enhanced by the rich bits of audio, which include the best shattering glass sounds we've heard."

Computer Shopper, May 1995

"Just when you thought nothing could take the place of Doom II in your heart or on your hard drive, along comes another fast-paced, first-person-perspective killathon that will get your hard drive spinning and your heart pumping."

"Apogee has done an end run around anticipated criticism of video-game violence. Triad features a Violence Level Adjustment that can be set anywhere from no gore to excessive blood and guts. Parents can lock in the option not to let their youngsters view exploding bodies by selecting their own password."
