Retro shooter game DUSK is arguably one of the best attempts to bring the classic '90s shooter experience to modern platforms. The game released for PC last December and will also be making its way to consoles later this year.

The game features three distinct campaign episodes that are inspired by pioneer shooter games from the early '90s, such as Quake, Heretic, Hexen and Half-Life.

This comment has been removed. Occassional difficulty figuring out where to go next, I remember when ten years ago that was the fun part.
