Home Forums Previous Months 38 – March 2020: Descent Contemporary Reviews Reply To: Contemporary Reviews


Finnish Pelit magazine has two reviews, one from February, and one from April 1995:

One gave it a 90, another an 89.

Some interesting points:
Drop-in-drop-out multiplayer.
There was a descender-bot on irc to get connected to randoms to play.
It worked fine on the reviewers 486/50 with an ISA graphics card.
‘More fun to blow a demon with a shotgun than shooting non-descript robots’.
At the time was listed as the #1 PC game in some top 100 list.
‘Doom and others, after descent, feel a bit…flat’.
