Pocket Gamer: Marathon 2: Durandal Review

Pocket Gamer: It’s an interesting history lesson, we’ll give it that. Marathon 2: Durandal on iOS is both a glimpse into the past of superstar developer Bungie Software and a demonstration of just how far games have come in 15 years.

Sadly, this touchscreen port of the early first-person shooter is also nigh-on unplayable, a combination of awful controls, archaic mechanics ill-suited to the platform, and headache-inducing visuals making it a thoroughly miserable offering, even for free.

While Marathon was only playable on an iPad, its sequel is a Universal app, available across all iOS devices. But even a smaller screen doesn’t help with its visual issues. (iPhone, Marathon 2: Durandal) 3/10
