It is a refreshed version of a game bearing the same title, which was released in 1999 and enjoyed a warm reception from both the players and gaming media (for instance, it received an award for the best adventure game of 1999 on the prestigious GameSpot service). Despite the passage of time, the game still amazes with its non-linearity, storyline, well-designed enemy behaviour and convincing NPCs.
The game depicts fictional events and is set in 2007. American scientists send a probe to an unknown world, which is situated within a parallel universe. The probe reaches the planet Adelpha, inhabited by the civilization of Talan. The natives soon find the probe and damage it, which creates a black hole that becomes a threat to Earth. An ex-commando who was part of Navy SEALs Cutter Slade, is sent to the alien planet in order to escort three scientists whose mission is to find the probe and close the interdimensional tear. Unfortunately however, the soldier gets separated from the scientists after the landing, and things get additionally complicated when the natives take Slade for a long-awaited saviour and their messiah The Ulukai. The hope that Slade will liberate them from a tyrant by the name of Fae Rhan.
