Halo Multiplayer - Friends and Strangers

The good:

- Variety of Weapons and Vehicles
- Styles of Gameplay
- Variety of Maps
- Decent Graphics
- Simple Controls
- Addictive

The bad:

- Slow Movement
- Lag
- Cheapness of certain Weapons/Vehicles
- Lack in variety of sound

Summary:

Halo over LAN is a two-fold concept. Unless you've got some decent computers with you, you're going to experience some lag and depending on the level of lag it can go from short delays to just dieing as you spawn.

Playing with friends is, however, quite fun. Given the choice you can create many different games just with the one map allowing for a variety of events. Being able to control such things as weapons, vehicles and special conditions gives a large amount of flexibility.

The drawback to friends over LAN themselves is the quantity. The more players in a game, more often than not the b...

Halo - Near Perfection

Summary:

Halo: Combat Evolved was one of the first games out for the original Xbox, and one of the most successful. It combined the environment, weapons, and enemies of a futuristic war with a combination of alien races with the graphics, gameplay, and controls of a brilliantly designed FPS. There are few things that compare to shooting down an Elite, while taking fire from three or four more, or experiencing the feeling of fighting for you life, trying to get off the God-forsaken ring-world Halo. Like any game, Halo: CE has flaws, but thankfully, these are few and far between, and for the most part...

Greatest Story Selling Xbox Game Ever

Summary:

By now everyone should know what Halo is. Even though it was a launch title to the XBOX, it is still probably the best title for it. Many proclaim Halo to be one of the best games ever, if not the best game ever. Unfortunately, it is not. While a great game, it is somewhat overrated.

Developed by Bungie, the makers of Oni, Halo is a first person shooter on a global scale. Instead of your usual crawling through caves, taking out guards here and there, etc., you literally watch wars between different alien races occur. This is a strong point of the game, but unfortunately we were deprived of ...

Halo = Very Buyable Game

The good:

- Graphics
- Co-op
- Enimies
- Realistic
- Wide variety of weapons and veichels
- Generally fun

This game has great graphics, excellent co-op, smart enimies and is very realistic. The controls are easy to get used to and is overall a very enjoyable game.

The bad:

- Time consuming
- Possibly too short

Although this game isn't especially short, because it is so good, you'll feel it isn't long enough and you'll end up replaying it over and over, making it very time consuming.

Summary:

It's realism, great AI and wide variety of weapons and viechels cause this game to be very good. Apart from being a little too short and very time consuming unless you are a hardcore gamer, this game is excellent. Halo was the first game i got for my xbox, and because it was so good i haven't bought buying other games as to risk being disappointed. If you like shoot 'em up games, you'll love this.

.....

Summary:

When Xbox was released back in 2001 I was very excited to receive one for Christmas. I got a few games with it and one of those games was Halo. I first started playing this game at about 1 PM and I continued to play it through the night. I was so amazed on how hooked I was to the story mode. It was just one of those games that you cant put down right away. The once I was done with the story I thought the fun was over until my friends showed me the multiplayer. It is truly amazing when 16 friends get together at someones house, hook up 4 xbox's to 4 TV's, and play Halo all through the ...

Score!

The good:

Excellent story, nice voice-overs, much more. The multi-player is as good as it gets for a game without online play, and the game has Very wide exploring range.

The bad:

Look at this game, no online? And the game is Very short. It's maybe a four day game at the most, and although it has different modes you could master them in maybe 2 weeks.

Summary:

Halo...X-Box's evolution. Many people, including myself bought an X-Box for Halo when it had first came out. Halo is an excellent single and multy player game, unless you are looking for online play. The game is short, but has voice-overs. It has a semi-wide vareity of weapons to choose from and wide levels to explore. Master cheif must defeat two races of aliens to free the world and stop the destruction of Halo. I reccomend this game, defently.
