Game Forces review of Descent 3
Descent 3 is so good, it will remain on your hard drive for years. With fantastic single player and multiplayer to boot, a gamer couldn't ask for more. Even with steep competition, Descent 3 is an easy candidate for Action Game of the Year.

Review - December 21, 1999
Descent 3 voted runner up game of the year at GameSpy
On the topic of "third installments in classic franchises", a much quieter release was found in Descent 3, but just as worthy of praise. This time around, the game took a much heavier story and mission-based approach, and managed to improve greatly upon its predecessors. Many of the disorienting, underground levels of D2 were eschewed in favor of more defined locations, such as space stations and even (whoa!) outdoor environments, thanks to two separate engines used to drive the game. It didn't get much attention, but Descent 3 was one of the best -- and nicest surprises -- of 1999. As GameSpy reader Assassin pointed out, "D3 is one of the most quality games to come out this year, undeniably."

Descent 3 Demo Patches

New Descent 3 Demo Slide Patch.

This patch only changes the behavior of the toggle slide control within the Descent 3 Demo. The behavior of this control was altered between the 1.0 and 1.1 patch and this patch restores the toggle slider to its original 1.0 functionality.

You only need to download this if you want this behavior reversed. No other changes have been made.
