This game is dire!
I cannot see what all the hype is about. This game is sterile experience and is not even as fun as the original Doom. Although it has ok graphics given when it was released I have say it does not hold up well and offers nothing in the way of satisfying gameplay.

I'm glad XBLA allows you to try before you buy as 800 points for this seems a little high.

I was a big Marathon fan back in the day and spent hours making mods in forge. That said, I think Doom holds up better; having computer terminals tell you to push switches and find keycards is not any more fun than just finding them yourself.
