Retrovirus Review | FPSGuru

'Back in the mid 90s, LAN parties were all the rage. For you younger folks in the crowd, LAN parties were basically where a group of people all brought their computers (massive desktop rigs since gaming laptops were still a pipedream at that point) to one location, hooked them all up through hubs and played “online” competitive games. This was pretty much a requirement since most online services were shaky at best for online gaming and many still charged by the hour/minute/etc. While games like Quake and DOOM were most people’s LAN party game of choice, me and my friends were different. We gathered together to play Descent more often than anything. Descent was basically a first person shooter, but you were piloting a ship through a subterranean series of caves and corridors. It had the six degrees of movement/freedom that air combat games had, but still had the confined space that tended to gravitate players towards each other and ramp up the action. It has been a long time since the Descent days and even though the game is about twenty years old, people still play it online. Unfortunately there hasn’t been much new to come out along the same lines until now: enter Retrovirus.' (PC, Retrovirus) 8/10
