I get that Marathon feeling at times

Or what it should have evolved into.

This game is for mature gamers. If you don't like Alien, Predator, Terminator or the likes of any sci-fi/space action you might not think this game all that.

The rest of you will bond instantly to it. Blood, crude language, carnage... and with a storyline also. Walking upside down, on wall ramps, flying... it's dizzily awesome. Great concept on the spirit walking.

Even with the graphics on low, it's really amazing compared to other shooters that have the same system requirements.

The storyline does seem to get lost as you get further into the game. As usual, you get 'bigger' weapons as you go along and it can be a bit disappointing. And while the weapons look (and may feel) different from the typical shooter, it's still the same ole pistol, grenades, shotgun, BFG etc.

Also the game at times, despite the awesome graphics, suffers from the "Halo repetitiveness". Loading times can disrupt the flow of the game.

Still it's a good game. And having missed Marathon so much (and after being denied the first crack at the pre-MS Halo), it's great to have a shooter like this.
