Great quality, no damage to original box
7 January 2013
Summary: The game is a great play and is fun as it always has been. I still jump when something pops out of the shadows at me -_- but that's how it's supposed to be. The box was not damaged so I am pleased with the handling of my merchandise, and the game was delivered on time and directly to me. Long live trekkies.
Summary: Out of the four DS9 games released between 1995 and 2001, The Fallen is undoubtedly the best. Excellent level design and faithful renditions of Starfleet phasers and phaser rifles, along with Worf's bat'leth raise it above other Star Trek games made at the time. Being actually able to use the tricorder is also great fun. The story is also great, being based on the Millennium novels that were released the same year.
Summary: First of all, it seems that most Star Trek games are about flying a ship around, but the TV shows were always more about the story and the people. That's what I like about this game. It's a first-person shooter (FPS), which immediately takes the emphasis off the ships flying around in space, but even more than that it's got a great story and good atmosphere.
Summary: First off, this isn't just a good game, it's a good Star Trek game. I have to admit that my favorite is Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force, but isn't it everybody's? In The Fallen, the 3rd person is a little different, and drastically changes the feel of the game, but it is awesome when you can climb across ledges with your hands. The graphics are good for a older game, but the lip-sync is way off, if you care about those types of things.
Summary: If you're good with first-person-shooting games and you have a bit of nostalgia for Deep Space Nine episodes, this game really hits the spot. Now a "bargain bin" title, it still is quite enjoyable for the different sort of gameplay it presents. Among the highlights are the way the "episodes" in the game are presented as episodes from DS9 the TV series, and the voice acting is great, with original voices, even of some minor characters like Garek.
Summary: This game is cool in that it resembles star trek details pretty well (including some actual actor voice-overs), but it is very aggravating when it comes to completing the missions. It is extremely easy to get lost...if you have little patience, this probably isn't the game for you.
Summary: Much like the terrific series its derived from, Deep Space Nine: The Fallen is a great game that follows in spirit of the show. I won't delve too much into the plot because its so thick with the lore of the DS9 series and I'd spend a whole 2 paragraphs describing it. Briefly, it involves Bajorans and their Orbs, Cardies and the Domoinion and a little bit of a new race not much spoken of on any of the latter series.
Summary: This game wasn't quite what I expected it to be. The game is not as user friendly as the Elite Force and other Star Trek games I have played. The graphics are slow and hang up from time to time which makes game play harder. I know for a fact it is not my graphics card. I think the technology is just older. Graphics were nice and there were cool features of the game. Just not quite what I expected.
