Product Description

Halo: Combat Evolved [Xbox] Unknown For the unknown

From Amazon.ca

This action shooter takes place on a mysterious alien world. It offers a combination of team-based first-person-shooter gameplay (reminiscent of Tribes) and third-person vehicle combat elements. Gameplay kicks off with the player heading down to the planet's surface in a troop carrier, à la Aliens. As the player and fellow marines exit, the remaining troopers form a flank in reaction to an oncoming onslaught of human and alien enemies.

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.

Halo brings the vibe and thrill that has been lacking in FPS (First Person Shooting) Games for a long time. Golden Eye was the FPS game I found great. Mainly what brings this game to live is the great multiplayer mode, and the high replay value. The story line itself was somewhat lacking, and somewhat intriguing. Especially when you beat the game on Legendary, it shows an confusing clip that makes you question the storyline. (I don't want to give away the story for those who have not played the game.)Still it gives a great sense of suspense you would want to keep playing, but after beating the game the story line would seem a little lacking.
The detail of the multiplayer maps are amazing, in Sidewinder, the amazing cracks on the ice, in Sidecreek, the amazing graphic for the water. Whenever a grenade is thrown, a bulletmark is made, there is always a realistic mark made. Graphically, this game is the best FOR ITS TIME. The effects are also 0utstanding, the explosions and wwhen the ships lauch off, when you are on vehicle and you are kicking up dust. AI is also very intelligent, when a grenade is thrown near the enemy, they know to GET AWAY from it. A minor glitch is that when a grenade is thrown ON the enemy, they will run toward their crew and kill the whole crew which is what you want but kind of stupid.
The sound was also outstanding. You hear yourself and the enemy and your allies. Explosions sounds surreal, if you have a home theater, it would sound like you are actually in a explosion. The gun shot are realistic. No flaws here!
Gameplay in really worth mentioning. I would never thought that wacking can kill so many people and the motion looks great. Reloading the pistol gives you a Western cowboy feel because you wack relaod and he spins it on his hand.

The story revolves around the conflict between humans and an alien race known as the Covenant. The aliens have discovered a powerful artifact--on the ring-shaped planet called Halo--that will shift the balance of power, and it's up to the player to stop them. In addition to several first-person-shooter levels, the game offers numerous opportunities to engage in vehicular combat. Both the enemy and allied artificial intelligence are extremely impressive. Enemies will use the terrain and layout to put you in tight spots. Allies will know when to cover and aid you. For instance, if you hop into a jeep, an ally will know to jump in and man the turret on the back of it.
The graphics are exquisitely detailed, but only move at 30 frames per second rather than 60. The sound effects and voice acting are superb. The level design is among the best ever; most of the game is engaging and challenging without being frustrating. There's also high replay value thanks to the built-in single-player, cooperative, and deathmatch modes.
All I can tell you is that whenI play this game with my husband, the graphics are amazing! I really feel like we are hunting out the other players. Thsi game is worth EVERY PENNY!

wow, for being a recreational gamer this game is great and well surprised after switching from PS2...........i titled this review as "cross eyed" for the reason that you do not have a choice of first person or third person view, my peripheral vision is so messed upped now i'm afraid to ride my motorbike. for the parents out their be sure their kids play a game that has "THIRD PERSON" viewing when playing a shooter game! now i wonder what this game game would be like on a "widescreen" television, for anyone who is using a widescreen "please" rebuke my thoughts!

i started playing halo 3.0 and purchased halo 1,2 after wards as i required the xbox 360 reversal software.........i have encountered minor ghosting but that can be removed by restarting from last save point or rebooting console, but remember to save game; ghosting happened once and when there where multiple huge explosion's!

halo story line is 90%, game is 90%.....first video game where i actually stopped to watch story line!!!!

This game is awesome! Ever tried getting 8 friends linking your xbox's together with 2 tv's and battling it out? hours and HOURS of fun. You can change the multiplayer settings to have different guns, same guns, change the spawn times, play capture the flag... SO many options! Working together to drive a vehicle and having another shoot from the back of it is always fun and jokes. It's a great multiplayer first person shooter! If you don't feel like going head to head, grab a friend and beat the different campaigns available! Have no friends? STILL GOOD! You can shoot every alien or bug in the single player campaign! Too easy you say? Well play it on hard or legendary if you feel like challenging yourself. I perfer Halo 1 over Halo 2 due to the brightness, clarity and overall feel. A must buy if you own an xbox console!

After having my Xbox for 7 months, I gave in and finally got Halo to see what the big fuss was about. Reviews on here keep stating that this is the "best game ever made". After going through Halo on normal and Legendary difficulties, it isn't anywhere near the best game ever made, but it is a pretty fun and good one. And I'd be willing to put this on a top 50 games list.
You play as Master Chief, a top soldier whose job is to stop the Covenant from eliminating the human race with a "weapon"- Halo. Latear on, you find a new enemy- the Flood, who is also fighting the Covenant. For a FPS, the managed to put a few good story elements in. Halo's true use is revealed, and it turned out to be something new and not just there to eliminate x species. You don't have to be a pure FPS fan to enjoy the game. In fact, the only other FPS I've played are GoldenEye and XIII. Sad, I know.
Gameplay was a blast. I had tons of fun doing just about everything. Taking down some of the bigger Covenant with a simple sniper shot, saving ammo by bashing enemies over the head with any weapon, throwing a plasma grenade into a large group, and much more. But some of the best parts are when you fight as a group with fellow marines. Sure they get blown away from a few shots of a Needler, but it was still cool the way they backed eachother up and complained if you killed an enemy they targeted. And getting a gunman while going all out in the Warthog is sweet. Though getting a few crew members when in the Scorpion tank is even better. Especially with its unlimited missiles.
The graphics are pretty good. Outstanding for a launch game, but now you can see that a lot of models are pretty blocky and could've been better animated.
