  • Summary: An experiment gone wrong ripped away the earth's atmosphere. Bathed in the searching radiation of the sun, the planet has been condemned. You are among the FORSAKEN™ few who invade the now abandoned settlements to collect what little fortune was left behind.

  1. Has enough substance behind the dazzle to hold off accusations of it being nothing more than a Descent clone in pretty new clothes. Forsaken 64's deathmatch mode is superb, every bit as playable as that of Rare''s Bondage festival. One of the best games of the year!
  2. One of the N64's elite titles. On a side note, if you ever want to lose your lunch, put this game in 3rd person view.My stomach churns at the mere thought of it... *sigh*
  3. Forsaken 64 has it all, baby. The game's four player deathmatch could very well be a replacement for those who have overplayed "Goldeneye 007's" multiplayer.
  4. This is a good 3-D game, but you may have trouble figuring out which way is up. Not that it matters, because you will be chased constantly and you will always be on the move.
  5. The unconventional control system can take a short while to get completely accustomed with - being able to rotate and move in any direction can quickly result with up becoming down and players getting disorientated very quickly.
  6. Forsaken is an excellent shoot 'em up.
  7. 40
    A classic case of unrealized potential, Forsaken fails to make significant use of its excellent control and four-player split-screen capability by thrusting you into an endless maze of frustration.

    Forsaken 64 is a very ambitious shooter that just doesn't deliver the thrills you may be looking for on the N64. While a decent game, it does nothing to really stand out on a platform with many, many great games. Expand
