Windows - 1996
Description of Necrodome
Necrodome is an excellent futuristic sport game that is ranks among Raven Software’s most underrated titles.
The description on the game’s official page says it all about what makes the game original, and how it influences Raven’s future games: "Necrodome puts players into a heavily armored vehicle, fighting in tournaments in cities across a near-future United States. Originally slated to be a sequel to CyClones, Necrodome took on new life as a wholly original game concept with a brand new in-house game engine capable of handling multiple wall angles, slopes, bridges and buildings with multiple floors.
Necrodome pioneered a unique cooperative multiplayer experience that allowed players to work together in combat with one player serving as the driver while the other fired the vehicle's weapons from the turret. This type of gameplay, perhaps the first truly cooperative game mode in an action game, has never been replicated.
Originally slated as a DOS title, Necrodome paved the way for Raven Software's first foray into the world of Windows game development. It also gave our developers the opportunity to learn and continue molding its in-house technology efforts and experience with 3D engines and networking for Raven Software's next 3D technology, the Vampire engine, used in MageSlayer and Take No Prisoners."
Highly recommended, especially for its unique co-op multiplayer gameplay. If you like DOOM, Rocket Jockey, or both, you will enjoy Necrodome, a game in which Raven once again proved themselves master of the action/FPS genre. Two thumbs up!

Glad to see some personal screenshots taken directly during the private game session. Why? Because many other retrogame resources seem to have borrowed snapshots from mobygames, and those exact shots were probably made by some dummy since he even forgot to turn the texturing on! That basically means those screenies make the actual game look worse than it really does (as seen on the nearby pics) since virtually all polies are flat-shaded. Anyway, Necrodome's got that extremely addictive gameplay as well as pretty picture, considering this 1's from 1996 when 32bit games used to be almost non-existent, hell even original Quake was still 4 DOS only!
In my opinion this game's totally underrated & unfairly forgotten, unlike, say, MageSlayer or TNP that use the same Vampire engine. Anyway, I still own it & love it more than those titles mentioned.
