Ook op Gamecenter is er een review geplaatst over Descent. Het krijgt een vette 9 door een betere gameplay en de uitstekende graphics.
In the previous Descent games, each level involved a key hunt and culminated in a countdown to escape after you blew up the reactor. But the gameplay in Descent 3 is deeper and more varied. The levels have numerous evolving goals and different styles of play. For instance, one of the early levels, in which you have to cover the evacuation of a base under attack, plays like a strategy game. You can place automated turrets and proximity mines at choke points to fend off the attackers streaming through breached walls while you race around to protect the base's reactors. The dynamic nature of the AI is obvious when you replay this level, especially at different difficulty levels.
