    Yup, another fine review of me and this time it's HALO for the XBOX Original! Oh boy, what was that a start for the XBOX! As a launchtitle it was a straight hit. Okay, no XBOX Live but hey, who cares? Get a buddy, plug another BOX into the tv and BOOM: Multiplayer... oh, good old days.

    But let us start, shall we?

    Yep, it's war again, and this time we've got a whole Covenant of alien forces pissed off. They think we are all demons and demons must be killed off till no one stands on his/her feet. But there is good old Master Chief, aka John117, the last surviving Spartan of the wiped-out planet Reach. In the marvellous beginning we see the Pillar of Autumn (what a stupid name for a ship, sorry!) arriving to a halo, but they cannot celebrate for long cuz guess who's knocking: yes, Covenant and they are not here for a beer or whatever. So they wake M C up from cryosleep and all HELL breaks loose...

    The graphics are really awesome for a early XBOX game, and the controls of MC plays well! Easy switching, no hassle. Run out of ammo? Just steal some other gun. But sometimes I got the feeling: where to go now? what where to do? where is the exit? yes, in many areas of the game you can actually get LOST! And when I say LOST I MEAN LOST!!!!!!! The areas are huge in which you play in.

    Here a tip of me: when you get the gun in the start of the game, try to kill Captain Keyes... (6)

    But back to business: the music is TOP NOTCH! (I mean it!)
    The graphics are very cool and nicely done with loads of small effects, just keep your eyes peeled!!! But: the game is a bit short if you know how to play it.

    But overall: (Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y) 10 THUMBS UP!

    I remember playing the pc beta of this, someone leaked it and within a day or two it was hacked so the lan play could be played over the internet, loads of fun!

    The game was amazing for its time, im ashamed to admit im only about 75-85% though the game, I really to sitdown and finish it sometime as ive finished all the other Halo games. I started playing the Xbox version on co-op one day, got from the start to where I am now in a day then never played it again! (A)

    Halo 1: Best Campaign, Halo 2: Best Multiplayer (even Bungie said they didn't do much for the campaign), Halo 3: Best... wait, why did they make Halo 3 again?

    A version of Halo that could integrate with the 360's in game dashboard was needed ;)

    Halo's campaign was one of the best in gaming history if you ask me. To this day, I can remember it like it was yesterday. The Halo campaigns went to hell after that.

    Halo is my favorite game of all time. and as you can guess its where my name came from. the first campaingh was the best I have ever played in any game. but the others just wernt as good. the third was better than the second but they didnt give it the ending it deserved. and they over used the flood. good twist in the first game but in the secon two they were just annoying.

    its not john 112 is john 117. 117 was his spartan number in the books and in the last game. (god just realised what a geek i am lol)

    another fine review sir. even inspired me to go back and play it agian.
