A huge explosion has turned Earth almost like a deserted place. The few survivors were brave enough to search for Earth's last remaining gold, but they had to fight the aliens wandering around with their ships and tanks. You are one of those survivors who must find the gold and kill everything that blocks your way. Aliens have great powers, so you must always gather power-ups, energy and ammunition. Gameplay is a bit tricky at the beginning, while you'll have to manage and fly your hover-style ship, around the levels. You can move in all directions available and it looks as you are diving and swimming inside an ocean. This game reminds me of the great PC game Descent, in most perspectives.
The Nintendo 64 version uses plain colored Gouraud-shading instead of texturing and features great graphics with fluid animation, vivid colors, well drawn enemies and environments. The sound is presented in Dolby with scores and sound FX that really add to the game a lot. Forsaken is a very good game that makes your adrenaline pump.
