Every once in a while, a Marathon project
comes along that gets back to the roots, the underpinnings
that brought so many people into the Marathon universe in
the first place. Solid mapmaking, coupled with a deep,
consistent, compelling storyline... and honest-to-goodness
Marathon Dissent is one of those projects.
This is a thinking man's (or woman's) scenario. Yeah,
there's plenty to kill... but if you act like your UT-built
twitch skills will pull you through, you'll end up dead. The
terminals in this game aren't eye candy... they're
IMPORTANT. If you ignore them, or skim them... well, you'll
have a much harder time of it, that's for sure.
It's not a total conversion; the added artwork is good,
but mostly, this will look like the Marathon that Bungie
gave you. Don't let this fool you into thinking that it's
not complex, or that you've done it before.
You haven't done it before.
Thomas Reed has done a spectacular job of creating a
kickass scenario, and I feel honored to have been able to
help a little bit. Jump in, and remember why you got hooked
on Marathon in the first place.
