This last licensee of id's popular DOOM engine is one of the best first-person action games ever made and among the early successful action / RPG hybrids. Strife takes DOOM into a dynamic world inhabited by not only evil aliens, but by oppressed peasants and citizens, with whom you need to talk and interact as well as fight. As member of a rebellion trying to overthrow the evil "Order" who controls all of Earth's technology in a post-apocalyptic future, every conversation choice you select has an impact in the game. With interesting subplot, seamless city environments, and great action / RPG gameplay, Strife is a neglected masterpiece.

Note: Night Dive Studios has remastered the game and called it the "Veteran Edition". It's available on Steam and GOG with widescreen support, easy control rebinding, graphical improvements and a few originally planned but never implemented features thrown in. No reason not to get a copy now!
