  • Far from dead, and still chugging along. Developer responds very fast and professionally to bugs, and the engine is very featureful (almost frighteningly so). While I can understand people using rebirth for multiplayer for familiarity, this is my goto for single player mode (And hopefully multiplayer if I can convince a few people).

  • Absolutely awesome! Best Descent I have ever used. I hope this project is not dead though...

  • All in all i rate this project as a good one. Every endeavor produces the obstacles and Descent initial improvement - and it is not an exclusion for D2X-XL. You receive great features(colored light, HD video, sound, and models and so on...) - but for a price of constant update and an ever lasting heroic bug fighting from an author. So if you face a certain glitch - don't be angry. This is being resolved even now as we speak. I would only say that if you expect to play Original Descent - do not search for it here. Its much more improved. Will it surpass the original - time will tell.

  • I've been Descending since 1995 and I feel no inclination to stop at this time. This is excellent work which enhances and preserves an excellent and ground-breaking game

  • I like this very much!
