by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST

Marathon is the game that presaged the “Halo” revolution. Bungie Studios’ very first FPS series, Marathon achieved cult status for its many genre innovations, deep roots in Bungie culture, and its hints of the Halo greatness to come. Chosen for their passionate following and knowledge of the original game, Freeverse was chosen to bring “Marathon: Durandal” exclusively to the Xbox 360.

Exclusively for Xbox LIVE Arcade, “Marathon: Durandal” is a compelling first-person shooter (FPS) cult classic that continues the tradition of great gameplay while remaining faithful to the spirit of Bungie lore as the predecessor to the Halo franchise.
