Marathon: Durandal Review
The spiritual predecessor to Halo is an interesting glimpse to the dawn of the shooter age, but the gameplay feels dated at this point.
I'm going to make this very short and sweet. This game is the entire reason I got interested in gaming in the first place. Without Bungie and Marathon 2: Durandal, I wouldn't be as interested in it as I am today. T... Read Full Review4 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Marathon 2 is one of my favorite first-person shooters of all time, so when I got my Xbox 360, this enhanced port was one of the first things I downloaded. The new HD graphics are good, but thankfully it allows you to ma... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful

Dear God, you have to feel bad for the early mac boys when you play this pale imitation of Doom. This was the cream of the crop for the mac crowd -- I am old enough to remember my friends showing it off, and the fake sm... Read Full Review0 of 9 users found the following review helpful
I came into this game expecting lots of good, classic shooter fun. What I found, though, was a total mess that wasn't worth my time. Why did they upgrade the graphics in a way that felt like "cheap college expirimen... Read Full Review4 of 8 users found the following review helpful
