Comment: This game is pretty out dated but still fun the graphics are kinda bad but the game play is very fun so if you cant handle meany games then you should play this for sure


  1. This article also lacks screenshots and any meaningful description of the game, but at least the game isn’t too hard to find. And unlike the reviews of this game in the comments, it’s not even 2D (instead, it’s 3D) nor is it one particular game. The game, or in this case, games, are a collection of sci-fi FPS games developed by Bungie and originally released for Classic Mac OS, and was even released on Apple’s failed gaming console, the Apple Pippin (Marathon and Marathon 2). The games are comprised of Marathon (1994), Marathon 2: Durandal (1995), and Marathon Infinity (1996).

    Anyway, onto the review, they’re not too bad. These games are definitely old, but they’re kind of like other games around the same time period such as Doom and Wolfenstein, but unique in their own way. Onto the pros, I really like the save point of Marathon (1994), called a “pattern buffer”; kind of reminds me of Majora’s Mask where you have to visit owl statue save points to save the game instead of being able to save the game anywhere. Makes the game a bit more adventurous in my opinion. Marathon Durandal and Infinity are kind of cool, because they feature swimming; and not just swimming, but the depletion of oxygen levels and sometimes even shield levels depending on the liquid you swim in. Plus the graphics in Durandal and Infinity are a bit better than Marathon 1994.

    The Marathon Trilogy also has their own multiplayer mode which is pretty cool. You have modes like Every Man For Himself, Co-Op Play, Kill the Man with the Ball (this one is kind of interesting since you’re trying to hold a ball for the longest time you can while avoiding other players), King of the Hill, and Tag.

    The Marathon Trilogy seems way ahead of its time, and it seems like this trilogy is really a precursor to the Halo series (also developed by Bungie). Maybe the Halo series wouldn’t even exist, if the Marathon Trilogy wasn’t around. I would give the Marathon Trilogy a really high rating, but I’ll be a bit more fair with this rating since it’s essentially three games bundled together.

    For Marathon (1994), I’d rate that game a 4.65/5. I’d probably give both Marathon 2: Durandal and Marathon Infinity a 4.8/5 since they’re a bit more improved. Averaging each game’s rating, the rating for the trilogy itself is a 4.75/5.
