Requiem: Avenging Angel (Wrath Of The Fallen) Cyclone Studios / 3DO 1999

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.
