4 out of 5
Forsaken is one of better FPS games out there. Basically a Descent
clone, it takes a lot of its gameplay, but has enough characteristics that make it original
and independent, too. The plot revolves around a weak post-apocalyptic Earth, which became a free-for-all planet for mercenaries to go and grab and take whatever they like while the planet's government has fled after giving up on it. You are one of those mercenaries and you have to battle other greed-filled people as well as robots sentinels that are left by the government. Basically, this is a standard FPS game. There is nothing special that stands out from other FPS games
, with you investigating the surroundings and killing everything in sight. But still, it is very well made, with fantastic visuals and great gameplay. The game is very dynamic and fast, and, in minutes, you'll feel your adrenaline shooting
. The surroundings are beautifully designed but still lacking from today's games, the camera well placed and the controls are easy and responsive. The music is also very fast and upbeat and perfect for the game. The game is no Unreal Tournament
, but is still a exciting and visually stunning FPS game that is great for first-timers in this kind of game. Definitely recommended.
