|As an angel one is sent on Earth to find the angel Aaron.
Some angels took it upon themselves to descend onto Earth and interpret
God's presumed displeasure with humanity and are known as The Fallen.
In the mid 21st century, led by Lilith, they have already taken control
over humanity's leaders - suppressing the populace with a totalitarian
regime, and pushing humanity towards the completion of the Leviathan,
humanity's first interstellar craft. With this craft, humanity will be
able to reach for the stars, and touch Heaven itself, something which God
cannot allow. If The Fallen succeed in creating the Leviathan, God must
instigate Armageddon himself, fulfilling the Fallen's desires.
An underground organization
fights against the rulers. Indeed one can die, even if one is an angel.
You have some supernatural abilities such as one can fly from some distance
and can cure youself, as well as run very fast if necessary. A lot of
these functions should be setup on the keyboard before playing the game
so you are familiar with their location. Although the transition to mortal
form has cost him his powers, he gradually get them back. Once he does,
he'll have the ability to shoot lightning from his hand, fly through the
air, possess the bodies of others and even bring back the dead to fight on
his side. It was also one of the first games to feature a bullet time
feature, slowing down time to allow the player to dodge bullets, and
highlighting the game's then advanced animation system. Requiem is not bad, but it
doesn't push the envelope by bringing much new to the genre either.
Too rarely there are successful ideas. One fights in the present and
also in the background story but enthusiasm is rarely aroused to make
you care about the happenings. Over and over again one encounters in
a level an especially hard to beat opponent. By the end (on a spaceship)
the game irritates more and more, and becomes more unclear.
