This is an updated Linux (x86) demo of Myth II: Soulblighter. The demo includes four levels from the Myth II solo campaign and an additional two multiplayer...
Myth II is a real time tactical game based on squad and unit management rather than resource gathering and expansion. Thanks to a realistic physics engine and meticulous unit balance, gameplay is highly varied and flexible. Your success or failure will be dictated by clear planning, an understanding of the terrain and an ability to mobilise your troops effectively; brute force alone will likely get you killed.
To get started with your first experience of Myth, download the free Myth II 1.5.1 Demo and fire up a new single player game.

You may not have seen the news. Namely this is due to archiving, however the Demo is now hosted on Moddb. If you haven't seen the promo video for the 1.8 patch it's below, most of the features are in the demo aside from the plugin manager as plugins aren't supported.
Highest Rated (2 agree) 8/10
A cult classic sequel to another cult classic: Myth: The Fallen Lords.
The very ancestors for all 3d games.
It's greatest features are:
Flawless physics and SFXs, extremely talented voices, exceptional music from Martin O'Donnell and Mike Salvatori, and an UNIQUE storyline unmatched to date.
It's a shame they never made the planned fourth game.
