Fixed gamma bug (nuclear) Bettered main menu text (LESS chance of cut-off, recommended setting is still 1024+)
Why did you do that?

Ok, I'm sorry but this game totally betrays the Marathon series as a whole. This is basically an RPG. The reason I'm playing Marathon is because I love first person shooters. I expected some sort of amazingly graphically updated version of Marathon, and I was half right. Graphics are a little better, but you only view from the top down. You should also include a read me with the actual game, so we know what the heck is going on. I am throughly disappointed and am sorry if I hurt your feelings, but I really don't think this game is worth five stars.

I've played all levels extensively, and from what I've played and seen in game, it's looking very bright, and I can't wait for new content. I thank you for making this little gem.
Now I noticed something in the first level, that you can do to actually go out of the map bounds. On the lockers you can actually walk on top of them (because they're at an angle, and I guess characters can walk on slants). You can actually walk outside of the map, and you can't get back in. Running away from the level only gets you inevitably stuck.
I haven't really noticed any other oddities other than that. The other levels are quite solid and I like how you've made the game have a lot of freedom (hence it's name I bet) on the customizable options. You've even gone off and included weapons from custom scenarios (such as the Snyper pistol from EMR).
I love what you've done, and I'm going to keep loving what you do with this. I can't wait to see the final product.
So far, so good

Considering the early stage that the game is at, I am impressed by the in-game graphics and the presentation of the menus and such.
I found it interesting to play as a BoB (fighting Pfhor is a lot harder when you don't have cybernetic implants!), a S'pht defender and a Pfhor.
The two main issues right now seem to be (1) the lack of ability to see what is behind you, leading to many deaths from behind (your character takes little damage before dying, which is fine as a game design decision, but only if you can avoid cheap deaths, and right now one shot from behind often ends your life), and (2) the difficulty in dodging incoming attacks.
I don't know if CubicCircle plans to add strafing, but it would fix the second problem. A radar would avoid the first problem. Then again, BoBs in Marathon cannot strafe and do not have radars implanted in their bodies (one assumes), so I won't dictate game design to CC.
In any case, I feel confident that the game will become more polished as time goes on and say "Good job, sir!" for CC's efforts so far.
