    Marthon and Halo, hell no. They don't seem to have a damn lot in common.

    can't you see the Marathon logo inside the Halo logo? or haven't you read the part in the interview with one of the guys working on it that says most all bungie games sort of fit together? goto the marathon story page

    (he said that when asked if Marathon and Halo had anything to do with each other and said he wasn't allowed to comment further.)

    Regarding Bungie games fitting together: I heard that the 3D engine for all of bungie's games is the same one! They just keep updating it and stuff. Weird huh?

    If you can't see the marathon logo, follow the halo link on the sidebar on jakeman's main page and look ( [​IMG] ) between the "a" and the "l". It is in the background

    The only thing in common are guns' and aleins. Maybe the marines but they don't look the same.

    Jason Jones (Halo Project Leader) when asked by Tuncer Deniz (Inside
    Mac Games) if Halo was somehow tied to and/or an extension of the
    Marathon series replied:

    "I'll say this: Observant fans of our games will note that
    certain themes tend to run through our games. For example,
    the sword Durandal (from the "Song of Roland") first
    appears in Minotaur as a magic sword and goes on to
    become a central character in Marathon. There are many
    other examples of common themes running through our
    games."
