Chasm: The Rift is one of many clones of the amazing action game - Quake. Just like its precursor, this game promotes the view from the perspective of the first person. Somehow, the gateway to the neighbouring dimension was opened and the world is flooded by a plague of ubiquitous monsters. As a soldier unknown to anyone closer to you, you have to face a whole host of opponents, from the Nazis, to great creatures, to save our planet from extinction.

Although the game does not have an innovative plot and generally does not dominate the technical level over Quak, it has some interesting features worth a closer look. First of all, an innovative weather system in which falling rain drops in open spaces look very impressive. In addition, the player has the ability to manipulate the lighting - he can extinguish lamps and torches, so that the area will immediately be covered with Egyptian darkness. The possibility of destroying the windows is also interesting, which was a completely new element for the game release times. Unfortunately, the Chasma engine did not allow you to look up and down, which was a kind of limitation of full three-dimensional and in some cases made it difficult to fight against low opponents.

The whole thing happens in different places, from the mass-connected corridors of military bases, incredible alien installations on Egyptian pyramids. Each mission begins with a briefing by your superiors. Guns, rifles or strong rifles have been given to the player's cancer as means of "supporting" the annihilation of enemy creatures. Enemies are modeled better than in Quake, and the damage system used allows you to attack an enemy with a shot hand or leg.

Multiplayer mode allows you to conduct deathmath battles for players who want a strong experience. The game was supposed to fill the break for Quake II release, which she successfully managed to do. Fans of FPS games shouldn't forget about it.
