You're going down... again.

If you thought Descent™ went to the edge of 360° 3D power-blasting sensory insanity, then prepare yourself. You're about to plunge over the edge, and into the depths of Descent II™.

Suddenly warped into the outer reaches of the Zeta Aquilae System, your new mission sends you into the black depths of treacherous alien mines. You blast through enemy robots with powerful new tools, leaving their flaming hulks in your exhaust. Your ultimate goal: to exterminate the alien robot stronghold from the enemy Alien Base and claim total control -- it's 30 new levels of outrageous destruction.

But this time, you're not alone.

Joining you on your deadly new assignment is your loyal Guide-bot. This faithful companion rushes with you through the twists and turns of the menacing darkness, often scouting ahead to hunt down the orbs, powerups and tools you desperately need to complete your job. But beware -- raging enemies are still determined to destroy you, including the menacing Thief-bot who's set on stealing your weapons of destruction and precious powerups. Get ready -- Descent II™ is about to take you on a whole new synapse-smashing ride.

Descent 2 (come il primo capitolo) è un gioco tanto vecchio quanto difficile, anche le difficoltà che il gioco classifica come "facile" possono risultare impegnative per chi affronta questo gioco per la prima volta. Uno dei punti di forza di questo gioco è il movimento completamente libero all'interno di un ambiente di gioco privo di gravità che ha permesso lo sviluppo di livelli intricatissimi e "labirintosi" resi più difficili dalle luci dinamiche e spazi completamente bui che costringono il giocatore all'uso massiccio di flare per illuminare gli ambienti. Io noto per esperienza personale che l'IA di questo gioco è molto semplice ma ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥a fino al midollo, i nemici non solo sono capaci di evitare i tuoi colpi ma anche di stanarti da un riparo con missili non guidati o venendoti proprio incontro (ma tutto dipende dal tipo di nemico ci sono quelli che non si muovono fino alla morte e quelli che ti vengono a cercare solo avendoti sentito sparare un colpo da lontano). La pianto quì perchè avrei troppo da dire su questo gioco...

I was extremely looking forward to playing this re-release. Hoever, it isn't a re-release. It's a completely unupdated and clunky direct port of the old game. This means you will very quickly find the game unplayable, under-responsive, and with impossible to utilize controls. You WILL need to mod this game to make it work, and that means having to play the game as if it were a non-Steam game anyway. At that point, you might as well buy it somewhere else like GOG. If you do happen to get this, though, I recommend installing D2X-Rebirth as soon as possible.

The game itself? Incredible, a classic of 3D first person shooters. Satisfying, even if its graphics may be a bit dated. And it is quite a challenge too. If you're not after rough flying and can't deal with poor textures, Descent 3 may not be the worst thing to look at.

But I can't recommend it as packaged here on Steam. Please do yourself a favor and check alternate sources first.

Ok, first off, you don't have to run the game through DOS Box - DX Rebirth is a much better port and works well with STEAM - read the forum post on Widescreen Support for more info.
What is there to be said about the game - it is a classic, the gameplay is frenetic, it really tests your reflexes and the enemies just keep on coming :)
Back in the day I had hours and hours of fun with Descent and Descent 2, then lost the discs and have been wanting to play this ever since. Played it again last night for just a few minutes and was hooked all over again ...
Only gripe is the price - it should have been offered for 50% off just like Descent, other than that, I have no complaints :)

As soon as I saw Descent get released on Steam I knew they'd have to follow with Descent II. In my opinion, Descent II is one of the best games ever created. Combining the amazing 6DOF and 360x3D with even better graphics, enemies, and maps. The only really negative thing I have to say about this release is that I think they could have set it up to operate better on current systems (enhance resolution support and so forth).

I used to play this game alot. To a point that i knew and still kind of know most of the secrets this game offers. I always loved how this game had such incredible movement freedom....up down left right forward back and even pitch rolling.

This particular version had flash missiles that would blind enemies and anyone or any enemy close by to the detonation. It also featured an after burner and a guide bot. This one also introduced the theif bot.

Anywise the usual concept...you are a mercenary employed by the PTMC to invesitagate their mining operations. It seams some computer virus from some unknown source has corrupted their machines and its up to you to destroy the machines, rescue the workers and destroy the mines in hopes the virus wont spread.

The game plays fairly well, and is alot of fun with multiplayer. This version had guided missiles and missile cams...thus you could fly a missile and chase your enemy. If you play multiplayer its even more fun. I recommend this game to any one who likes old nostaligic games from the early 90s. I also recommand this game to people who like first person shooters with 6d movement ability. No not messing up....3d games are you go forward back and can look and maybe jump....but goin in anydirection and control pitch is 6d(ie you can move diagonaly or slide one way while moving your point of view another way). If you do get this game...you might consider looking up the descent rebirth projects on the internet, as they are special loaders that improve the gui and other parts of the game. But you still need this base game to use those things.

One more interesting tid bit about this game...yes aside from me actualy being one of the first with the codes i spread all over the internet way back when becasue the developers gave them to me first.....
This game as with its previous version of Descent 1 had a curious feature of allowing you to play co-op and the usal detah match games....but also the game play literaly didnt even try to synch all the players....thus a person with a really fast connection and really good machine...would out perform some one else with not a very good connection or good machine.
What that means is....if some hacker was trying to lag the game they only messed themselves up....programs like aim bot never worked very well with this game because unles syour machine was fast and you had a good connection better then your opponent you shots would still miss.
Kind of interesting....no attempts to synchronize or do things like that resulted in a pretty good foil to hackers. Other things like making your self take no damage for example....if against another player this game was designed to not compensate for that always....sooo...you could always get kileld no matter what hacks you tried to use.

Its part of the reason its mutiplayer pvp was so popular for so long.
