Marathon: Durandal

True achievements
10 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Final notes, This game is Amazing but not a Grade A title like others out there as of 2010. But its enough to keep some busy and trying to finish Marahton on Total Carnage is not simple. So if you want a FPS to have fun with and finding people to boost with you, This game is great. have a chance to pick it up soon.

Marathon: Durandal Review

2 August 2007
  • Excerpt: A lot of people have never heard of Marathon, and there's a reason for that. Long described as the Mac's answer to Doom, Marathon was released in 1994 and featured excellent single-player and multiplayer gameplay. Not many noticed, though, since the series was almost exclusive to Apple's Macintosh platform.
  • Pros: Solid translation of a classic Mac shooter, Interesting to play for an early glimpse at the influences that shaped Halo
  • Cons: Gameplay feels dated 12 years later, Controls feel a bit clumsy

Toy Story 3

Console Monster
23 July 2008
  • Summary: “To infinity and beyond!” Everyone of all ages is accustom to the catchphrases used by Woody, Buzz and the gang in the most popular family film of all time: Toy Story. Accompanying the highly-anticipated Toy Story 3 film is the video game which, to meet the demands of the excited children and adults alike, must provide an experience that replicates to a great extent the world of talking toys. Surprisingly, Toy Story 3: The Video Game does just that and more.
  • Pros: Re-creates the Toy Story world brilliantly, Great level variation, Set the bar for future movie-licensed games
  • Cons: Collectibles in Toy Box mode, Occasional camera angle niggle, Lack of replayability

Marathon: Durandal

12 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Det finns dock en anledning till att man ändå kan vara intresserad av att titta närmare på Marathon: Durandal. Spelet är trots allt något som lagt grunden till den efterföljande Halo-serien och för de som vill gräva sig djupare i sambanden spelen emellan finns tillräckligt med godbitar för att kunna motivera fortsatt spelande. Men som spel sett har det knappast åldrats med värdighet utan får nöja sig med att vara ett intressant stycke spelhistoria.
  • Pros: En intressant handling som dessutom knyter an på flera plan till Halo-serien.
  • Cons: Motbjudande yttre, illamåendeframkallande kameraarbete, förlåldrat på de allra flesta plan, platt berättande.

Marathon: Durandal - Test

6 August 2007
  • Excerpt: Die jüngste Veröffentlichung auf Xbox Live Arcade ist für alle unter Euch, die behaupten, dass früher einfach alles besser war. In einigen Fällen mag das vielleicht auch zutreffen, schließlich ist und bleibt Tetris für den klassischen Game Boy zweifellos die beste Fassung des Spiels, auch 18 Jahre nach dessen Veröffentlichung.
