Another The Fallen Preview

GameSpot UK has posted a preview of Simon and Schuster's upcoming Star Trek game, The Fallen. The preview is based on a special demo that they received, allowing them to play most of the solo adventure featuring Commander Sisko. They have also posted new screen shots, and lots of information about the game for those just now learning of its existence. Here is an excerpt from the preview:

engine, however, is that developer The Collective has
opted for a third-person perspective, more Tomb Raider
or The Infernal Machine than Quake. But it works really
well. One of The Collective's main reasons behind it
was, "We wanted the player to see their cool character
on-screen. Who cares if you're playing Worf and you
only get to see his hand?", according the game's FAQ.
The biggest benefit is that The Fallen can lie
somewhere between Quake and Tomb Raider, so that
you have the action of the former, but the ledge
dangling and rock-face climbing of the latter. Certainly
initial impressions suggest that The Fallen will cleverly
meld adventuring and action, something that should
help the game reach a wider-than-Star-Trek audience
(which, admittedly, is quite wide in the first place).
