Marathon 2 features an impressive arsenal of technologies including; 16 bit graphics, 16 bit active panning with stereo sound, use of DirectX, real physics model, outdoor and underwater levels, interactive characters that actually talk to you and fight, awesome artificial intelligence, and some really cool network play scenarios including Tag, co-op, and kill the man with the ball. The game is 3D texture mapped as well to give its levels even more detail.     You, of course, will need a fast computer to take advantage of all this great stuff. I recommend a Pentium II 133 or better with 32 megs of Ram. They recommend a Pentium 90 with 16 megs of Ram.
