Summary

The same game with better graphics and better levels

The Good

The first 4 levels of this game have boring level design much like the original Descent, but if you get past those and move onto the next planet you'll find the levels are completely insane and finding your way out after the reactor blows will sometimes seem impossible! The graphics are a lot better too, and the multiplayer is the same. I suggest that if you are interested in playing multiplayer D2 you try this site for finding a game. It provides multiplayer like kali and it's free and it also has a chat directed at Descent players in particular (though it supports *any* game using IPX for multiplayer).

The Bad

The insane levels are sometimes too insane. I mean, getting 15 seconds to find the exit in a large twisted maze of tunnels is a bit too difficult!

The Bottom Line

Fun. (if you happen to like this sort of game)
