Doom vs Marathon (Gaming)

But that experience isn’t unique to Marathon and isn’t lacking in Doom. I mean, minus having a radar. And in many regards I would say that the atmosphere of Doom is significantly more dangerous and adrenaline pushing than anything in Marathon. Even some middling encounters and level designs of Doom are higher intensity than anything I recall from the first Marathon.

It's been so long I could be making all of this up, but if I had to compare the games to a movie experience, I'd say Marathon was like watching Alien, Doom was like watching Aliens...

Both were fine, enjoyable experiences, but difficult to compare side-by-side.
