Fresh from your triumph on the starship Marathon, you are seized by the rogue computer Durandal to do his bidding in a distant part of the galaxy. Within the ruins of an ancient civilization, you must seek the remnants of a lost clan and uncover their long-buried secrets. Battle opponents ancient and terrible, with sophisticated weapons and devious strategies, all the while struggling to escape the alien nightmare..
The designers that brought Mac gamers the award-winning action/adventure game Marathon now unleash their most stunning creation. Marathon 2 delivers an intense gaming experience in either single-player or network mode. From the howling winds of outdoor environs to the murky bubbling of underwater scenarios, ambient sounds with active stereo imaging set the mood and provide audio cues for the player. Civilian characters don't hestitate to return fire, or speak their minds. 16-bit graphics fill the wide-format screen, as dynamic lighting effects dazzle the eye.
Marathon 2 is a veritable wish-list for network gamers. Up to 8 people can play the whole game cooperatively, in teams, or every-man-for-himself. Games everyone played as a kid -- Tag, King of the Hill, Kill the Guy with the Ball and more -- can now be played in Marathon's virtual environment while heavily armed.
