Marathon:Resurrection 2.0

Team Unpfhorgiven has released Marathon:Resurrection 2.0, an unofficial recreation of Bungie's classic Mac shooter, Marathon. Released in 1994, it was considered by many as a direct rival to Doom, and in some ways superior. Resurrection is an Unreal Tournament modification that features enhanced single- and multiplayer components, with improved graphics and elaborate Internet play. It is said to run on any computer that can also handle Tournament, which includes Windows systems as well as Mac OS 9 and X machines. The mod can be downloaded as either a ZIP or uMod file.

    Marathon was superior...

    ...to Doom in everything but marketshare. Marathon had real 3D space, Doom had "2.5D", better plot, cooler weapons, and better sound effects.

    weellllll

    the entire marathon series was in 2.5D as well and all the characters were sprites like DOOM. but I have to agree with the rest of the points -- it was much better.

    Aleph One found a way to make Marathon a 3D experience, though I never installed it. oops.

    Aleph One rocks. It's the perfect way to get your Marathon on in OS X. Although I'm definitely going to try Resurrection 2.0.
