Marathon is a good game on the ipad

One more soldier reporting, sir.

Bumping because I just downloaded the first Marathon game-

 

I'm really enjoying this, I thought that I'd hate Doom engine FPS's after Doom and Duke 3D but thankfully Marathon fixes all the issues I had with the other two games.

 

With mouse look, a good story and beautiful graphics for a Doom engine game (probably due to it being a fan remake, as the textures are equal to Quake 3) I've found the oldest FPS that I consider to be good, too bad Bungie decided to make Halo after this I guess, I would have liked to see a modern version of a game with this much potential. The AI's are actually interesting characters (compared to Duke's 2-dimensional, juvenile personality) and I can almost see the makings of characters such as SHODAN and GLaDOS in Durandal.

 

Overall I give it a 9/10 for it's time period and a 7/10 today.

very cool, looks way better than Doom and Duke Nukem 3D

This is the end of the line, and I'll rip you apart for what's inside.

Compensating wealth for what's more and more worthlessness.

The end of fear, the end of your life, I'll kill you right now, fucking die.

Saw the post announcing they were free on Bnet a few days ago. Boy is that place dull right now without it being the official hub for Halo on the internet, can't wait for Bungie to announce something new.

Looks very promising, I've always enjoyed the DOOM-like shooters like this one, or one of the several WADs for it avaliable in Zdaemon. I'm downloading the first game right now :D.
