LinuxWorld: Myth II: Soulblighter

"Rawn Shah shares his opinions and gaming tips."

"This is one of the few games (the other being Quake) that proves that 3D games on Linux can work well. An amusing footnote to my review is that, about a week after putting the game through its paces for this article, I turned the Linux machine on which it had been installed into a firewall. I really didn't want to play the game from the beginning all over again to check certain points, so I decided to try to see how well it worked running simultaneously with the firewall. I am pleased to report that it ran just as smoothly with the packet filtering of the firewall on in the background."

"Even given that the firewall only filters my small 10 Mbps Ethernet LAN of 12 nodes to a 786 Kbps DSL line out to the Internet, I was surprised at the performance level it could maintain. That's certainly something I couldn't do with a Windows 98 box running the same game."
