I wouldn't call this a flaw, given that Overload is keen to preserve the purity of the Descent series, but you need to love that core combat dance a lot to get the most out of the game. My enthusiasm dwindled before I reached the end, but Descent veterans who want a modern update will find more to love, as will players looking to dip in occasionally for quick doses of zero-G combat.

Overload manages to perform that rarest of tricks; it looks like Descent does in your mind's eye. Revival has done a decent job of marrying reverent design with a dash of much-needed modernity. The enemy ships, for example, are very much inspired by the designs of yesteryear but their AI often comes with a modern twist.

Für Nostalgiker, die ihre Lieblinge in (halbwegs) zeitgemäßer Grafik erleben möchten, ist Overload einen Blick wert. Aber auch für sie dürfte schon nach kurzer Zeit klar sein, dass ein Descent ohne nennenswerte Weiterentwicklung alles andere als zeitgemäß ist.

Und wie dadurch eine Dynamik entsteht, die von Bewegung und Taktik sowie kraftvollen Explosionen lebt. Sicherlich ist Overload im Kern nichts Neues und bietet über die Dauer der Kampagne keine echten Überraschungen. Es ist aber ein auf den Punkt konstruierter, schnörkelloser Shooter – perfekt in dem, was er macht!
