DS9: The Fallen Previewed at IMG
8:20 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story
IMG has posted a preview of Simon and Schuster's third-person Star Trek adventure game, DS9: The Fallen. You are cast as Benjamin Sisko, Kira, and Worf, as you attempt to foil the Pah-wraiths' attempt to take over the Alpha Quadrant. Here is a clip about the game's characters and gameplay:
In an obvious attempt to give themselves a massive headache, The Collective decided to make each character's experience different, yet still stay true to the overall arc of the story. While it may have been a pain to implement, it's a treat to play and should really give The Fallen a degree of replayability not seen in other single-player titles. More than just a few different levels, each character actually has a different style of play. Worf will be literally hacking his way through the enemy-filled levels with his Bat'leth while Kira requires a bit more gray matter to navigate through puzzles. Sisko, being the well-balanced captain he is, strikes more of an equilibrium between action and adventure in the game. Their respective paths will diverge, only to cross again more than once, making it fun to try out the game from the three angles. All of this is being done in the 3rd person perspective, so you can watch your respective character's movements and animations.DS9: The Fallen is being ported to the Macintosh by The Collective. You can find out more about The Collective in our interview with them. The Unreal Tournament powered game is scheduled for release in late December/early January.
