Rise & Fall Falls In Price (In Fact, To Free)


This is unexpected. Midway have released 2006's Stainless Steel Games' swansong Rise & Fall for free. Nought. Nada. Bar a couple of gigs of bandwidth, of course. It's an interesting one, certainly - its idea was merging a traditional RTS with a more hands-on hero mode. You built up the ability and then, when the moment was right and battle was joined, you took control of your hero in a first person fashion. It actually divided the RPS team's affections. I thought it was mediocre at best while Tim Stone totally adored it. And even I agree at this price, it's certainly amusing enough to take the chance on, in case you're in Tim's corner rather than mine. Get it from here. Also, some a video beneath the cut to help you make up your mind.
