It's this smart AI system that makes for a noticeably unique gameplay feel. Another very nice feature is the seamless transition into vehicular elements. As you venture through mission objectives, a variety of enemy flyers and on-ground buggies are yours for the taking. Come across a vehicle and the camera will pull back to a third-person view as you strap in and motor through crossfire. A co-op mode allows a friend to join you in the single-player missions. For chaotic fighting action, up to four players can duel in split-screen deathmatch mode or link systems for LAN play. However you choose to hero your way through Halo: Combat Evolved, the action should break in your new Xbox in explosive style.
So this game Halo comes along, and I don't have an XBox, so although I'd heard of it I'd never tried it. I decide to give it a shot and download the demo, which is pretty good. So I go out and buy the game - only to find out later, there are no cheat codes!! Too late now, it's already opened. So I try it out... and only 5 minutes into it, I'm completely hooked.
First of all, the graphics are amazing. I'm running the game on a Pentium 4 1.3 GHz, 256 MB RDRAM, and a GeForce 2 MX 400. I also have not changed a single game display setting, I've turned nothing on and nothing off. This game runs for me with no lagging; that's right, in over 20 hours of gameplay, I experienced not a single lag. Granted, the graphics aren't as breath-takingly beautiful as on a better graphics card, but my computer runs the game well, and to me that's all that matters. The sound is also amazing. It comes through clear, no fuzz or static, and it never fails to amuse; For instance, when shooting towards a group of enemies, some of the little grunts will start screaming in terror.
Gameplay is very fluid using the keyboard and mouse.Read more ›
