My first review of this game was made on Aug 2012 and it's quite stunning seeing how much history I have with this particular game.
My opinion still stands that this scenario, Eternal, and Rubicon surpass the original trilogy. I'd say EVIL and The Gray Incident are on par with the trilogy. Red is really the only one I'd rate below M2/MI. (Not a huge fan of M1 myself, too much Doom.)
Regarding Phoenix, unlike the previous commenter, I find the combat a thrilling experience; it's especially adrenaline-inducing when playing on Total Carnage; the enemies are so aggressive and ruthless, prompting me to strategize to take advantage of their weaknesses.
I find the level design very complicated and interesting. (The complicated level design grew on me over time; I don't need a guide to beat MP anymore.)
Perfect scenario... except for that typo in Tantive IV. Sytemic glitch indeed.
I give it a 5 alone for the feelings I get when I play the final level. It stands out so much. Who made that music? It is utterly moving and profound.
I have beaten this before and the final fight with the boss was challenging but amazing. I am re-downloading it and am going to see if I can make a special XBLA HUD for it.
I was hobbling around my own two feet ambling back and forth acquiring munitions to dispel of the most villainous Pfhor and then...
LOL. IT IS SO FREAKY. AWESOME. BEST PRANK LIKE EVER. TRIPPY AS (CENSORED). LIKE A BAD ACID TRIP. OMG. IT IS SO SCARY.
FIVE STARS FOR THE SCARE.
Great HUD for M - Eternal. Makes gameplay a lot easier.
The hub is one of the big highlights of this pack. It's separated into episodes packed with levels! Great job!
The last level is a pure work of art. The level's detail is immense and it has a lot of storeys overlapping each other.
Nice mini-scenario! Worth getting for sure.
The best thing that came to Marathon! Now I can play Marathon in an ARCADE style! I make my own maps for it and test a lot with it. I take advantage of "Hills" and make certain maps easy and others insane!
Has more than PHYSICS! has Terminal editors and MAP makers! I'm bound to use it. :D
My favorite levels, honestly were Vae Victis and Words Which I Command. Because the thing about the guy dreaming, it's excellency. Epic scenario.
An AI going rampant, only to fall so far into love to wipe out BOBs to fashion a body for herself... Interesting hahahaha.
:P Great Job W'rkcacnter!
Far beyond my abilities. 99/5
The architecture in this scenario is impeccable. This RyokoTK deserves the highest applaud for the effort he put into this masterpiece. inf/5 rating, but 5 is the highest available. RyokoTK, make scenarios like this one, and you'll get me hooked.

Btw, Stone Temple Pilates at Normal is wicked difficult. Serial number of tries just to make it about the 20th time? Relentless brutality, but it's the way it should be. Rock on RyokoTK.
AND HONESTLY, Phoenix beats the original Marathon trilogy. Played it more than the originals.

So far, I'm at Tantive IV in Total Carnage difficulty - wonderful and difficult scenario, surprisingly beatable in TC.
