I'm sure some will disagree, but this is a game that got absolutely everything right back when it first released on DOS, from sound, to graphics, to balance, to gameplay. It has that X factor that is hard to come by. It's maddening, addicting, scary, thrilling, and yet deeply rewarding. Few games back in the early 90's kept me as enthralled as this game did. The 360 degree movement made the gameplay truly unique at the time, not to mention confusing if you didn't pay attention to where you were. Combine that with the thrill of uncovering what lay ahead in the mines, the difficult bots that were out to destroy you, a great soundtrack, and action not matched by many at the time. Descent is an instant classic and it's nice that it lives again so the newer gamers can experience a piece of PC gaming history, and so those of us who were lucky enough to descend into it's depths the first time around, can revisit the mines our corpses littered more then we probably would've liked.
