Well what can I say. At a launch of a new console, the flagship games are always vitally important. If they don't sell, the console won't sell. Luckily for Microsoft, Halo:Combat Evolved has become one of the greatest first-person shooters of all time, selling over five million copies worldwide...

ProGreat enemy A.I. | Graphics and sound

ConsSome repetitive environments | Control issues

It’s hard to know where to begin with a game like this. Many regard Halo as the best thing to happen to FPS (First Person Shooters) since Half-Life and some even say that it is the best FPS in history. When Bungie began to show the world the first glimpses of Halo people were interested, the...

ConsLack of sleep. Halo 2. Lack of food.

The story starts in the year 2552 with our hero, "Master Chief", a cyborg super-soldier, onboard a spacecraft known as "The Pillar of Autumn". The game quickly throws the player into the thick of the action. The Pillar of Autumn is under attack by a group of aliens known as the Covenant. The game...

HALO Every now and again a game comes along and blows everybody away. A game that sets a new standard for its particular genre or for games in general.

ProBrilliant gameplay, excellent AI.

The name Halo is well known amongst xbox fans. It was most probably the sole reason that stopped xbox from failing, and helped to increase its unit sales of the console many times more than they would have been. One thing many people don't realise is the effort that went into Halo, and one can...

ConsYou won't leave home for weeks

Tired of clogging up my PC hard drive with games that now seem to use over 1GB of my poor hard disk, I decided to buy an X-box. At about £160 with two games and boasting the specifications of a pretty good games PC, I happily parted with my cash and at the same time bought a copy of the highly...
