In Response To: Re: Not Enough Hulk! (Steve Levinson)

: Marathon Rubicon is a kick-ass 3rd party scenario - IMO the best 3rd party
: scenario ever, although a lot of people here will disagree.

The only other thing I'd like to add here is that if it isn't the best 3rd party scenario, it's certainly the most controversial. For example, Frigidman, the leader of the team that produced Marathon EVIL, reputedly really tore into Rubicon in his reviews at Fileball, the Marathon file repository website similar to the Bungie.org Archives. A lot of people also didn't like the muted texture palette from what I recall.

And then there was a poster on the old alt.games.marathon newsgroup who once apparently hated Rubicon so much that he compared it to Daikatana (ouch!).

I think the most amusing thing I remember was when Rubicon was posted up on MacGameFiles.com - a lot of people thought it came from Bungie (!) while many, many Unreal and Quake fanboys gave it terrible reviews "because it had sh*tty graphics" (While totally being oblivious to the fact that it was supposed to be a total conversion mod of a game whose engine was almost more than four years old.).
