Halo: Combat Evolved review

Review date unknown

faktor says: " The XBOX- claimed to be the world's strongest console. The boys at Bungie tried to prove this by making a FPS, that uses every ability of the ''Box'', and then some. In my opinion, they did one hell of a job. "

goldenvortex says: "Ironically, I only purchased Halo because I’d played Munch’s Oddysee to death and picked it up because it looked “ok.” OK?

Recent history dictates that it will probably be thoughts of lacklustre efforts like Ridge Racer V and it's ilk - games that certainly looked very pretty, but lacked any gameplay flair that set them apart from any previous system. Well hold on to your dungarees, boys and girls, because if that's what you were thinking, then Halo is going to leave you ecstatically surprised. Sorry to ruin any suspense that ..."
