Marathon 2: Durandal Bungie Software 1996

This is a conversion of the popular Mac shooter. It has reached cult-status on the Mac, on the PC however it gets lost between better titles. Made by Bungie, the makers went on to later massive success with the Xbox shooter Halo series. Marathon included a strong plot, revealed through a series of computer terminals, and multiple misson types such as rescue, exploration, extermination, and retrieval, a radical change from the simplistic "blast anything that moves" style of most earlier FPSs. It is arguably the first game to use AI controlled teammates, unarmed/ambiant characters, dual wielding, secondary functions on weapons, and free look, most of which are widely used to this day. However, these games did not reach a wide audience, being released on the Apple Macintosh platform, and only Durandal (the second in the trilogy) being released on Windows. All games have since been made available, free of charge, to Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. The Aleph One release of Marathon 2: Durandal includes the classic graphics, and revamped high-definition textures and monsters from the Xbox Live Arcade edition.
