I was pleasantly surprised that the programmers have taken some care to put in elements in the game that really MAKE it a Star Trek experience. For example the Tricorder. When I play the game I actually spend most of the time using it. When I beam into a new site for the first time it is the first thing I am compelled to use. The tricorder is important because it helps you locate objects you need and allows you to scan for shield modulation frequencies so that you can penetrate enemy shields- very important for your survival.
Because of this the game creates an authentic Star Trek experience that Elite Force lacks- I felt like a starfleet officer doing things a starfleet officer would do! Elite Force on the otherhand made me feel like a Quake player running around in a Star Trek universe.
The game is solidly built. Nice rendering. Projective shadows help add to the mood. Good music- but missing the original DS9 theme. No problem just swap their MP3 with the correct one :)
The biggest thrill was running around Ops and the Promenade. It really gives you a new perspective on what DS9 was really like. (Make sure to look for the fish bowl on the promenade- a nice touch).
The game is more difficult than I expected- even on the first level. I guess authenticity gets in the way sometimes. But fortunately cheats are well documented online- so no worries there.
The only reason I give it a 4 out of 5 is that this is basically a Quake/UnReal game.
I was also surprised, as an amateur musician, at the quality of the soundtrack, which may be the best game music I've ever heard. My only real quibble with the game was that the missions were more of the same "fetch that object, and take it there" that this genre seems to rely on. I did like the overall story, however, and there are a couple of good twists, although they are not particularly difficult to guess.
All in all a terrific game, even if, like me, you are not a huge Star Trek fan. Final note: this game has actually got me interested in Deep Space 9 shows...
II. Appreciation aside there are SERIOUS technical problems. Check out the Official website's discussion board to get an overview, but briefly the game, despite the 3dFX participation has a real bad time with GLIDE hardware, and often it will not recognize D3D mode either. One can usually work around the GLIDE and D3D problems by using the OPEN GL mode and installing the 2 patches (One of which is 32 meg: That is TOO big for a patch in my opionin it feels much more like a flawed retail product that needed more work). Also if you are using a Diamond MX 400 there are additional audio tweaks you will need to make to get the sound to work properly.
III. In conclusion this is a great game but I'm getting the feeling that they rished it out the door to make Christmas sales deadlines and the game was simply not ready for retail release (I know they missed 1 release date as it was). Hopefully future support will address these serious problems.

this and elite force are the only star trek games worth your time.Published 7 months ago by Zharrhen
The game is a great play and is fun as it always has been. I still jump when something pops out of the shadows at me -_- but that's how it's supposed to be. Read morePublished on January 7, 2013 by Lycantis
I bought this about ten years ago and I still play it from time to time. It is great third-person mission game with great graphics and it is actually very challenging.Published on October 14, 2012 by Coffee Addicted Writer (Billy)
Out of the four DS9 games released between 1995 and 2001, The Fallen is undoubtedly the best. Excellent level design and faithful renditions of Starfleet phasers and phaser rifles,... Read morePublished on December 17, 2010 by S. Carey
First of all, it seems that most Star Trek games are about flying a ship around, but the TV shows were always more about the story and the people. Read morePublished on August 24, 2010 by A Reader
First off, this isn't just a good game, it's a good Star Trek game. I have to admit that my favorite is Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force, but isn't it everybody's? Read morePublished on May 11, 2010 by Peter Drake

This game is cool in that it resembles star trek details pretty well (including some actual actor voice-overs), but it is very aggravating when it comes to completing the missions. Read morePublished on August 6, 2006 by B. Taunton
