Product Description

Based off of the same theme as the previous Halo; In Combat Evolved take your battles online as you are the last of your kind bred for combat and built for war, master of any weapon and have the fear of no known enemy. You seek and destroyed the alien onslaught, fighting for the humanity while uncovering the mysteries that are Halo.


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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you were like me, then you have heard about what a great game Halo is, but you couldn't figure out what was so great about it or what made it so special. It first glance, it looks so ordinary. You look at the box and see that you are fighting a bunch of aliens with laser guns and assault rifles. Sounds like a cliche doesn't it? But what is so great about this game is that it is just really fun to play. It gets all of the little things right. Halo isn't innovative as far as setting and storyline go, but it is a big breakthrough as far as gameplay goes. (Gameplay, remember that?) Even during the mind-numblingly repetitive spots, it still manages to be somewhat fun.
Here are five reasons why Halo is a great game:
1. Weapon balance - every weapon in the game is useful, and none are overpowered. Every weapon has at least one advantage, and one disadvantage. The pistol is accurate at long range, which gives it an advantage over the assault rifle, which is lethal, but only at a short range. The plasma rifle is good for taking down shields, but can't hold much ammo, and the rocket launcher is very powerful, but also slow to reload. You can only carry two weapons, but you will frequently find yourself changing them out for various situations. The fact that all of them are useful gives you all sorts of ways to fight differently.
2. Fantastic AI. The aliens in the game (called "The Covenant") give you some very smart enemies to fight. They will use cover to let their shields regenerate and if you are trying to run them over in a vehicle, they will dive out of the way. They will also use grenades sometimes to flush you out, as well as try to rush you and/or outflank you. Sometimes they will jump onto nearby turrets or vehicles.

This is a review of the single player version, so if you are mainly interested in multi-player, you should skip to the next review.... I am actually playing Halo through for the second time, on a higher difficulty level. I played through the first time on Normal difficulty, and was able to complete the game in maybe 30 or 40 hours.
I thought the graphics were great, especially the outdoor scenes. I found myself wandering off from a few fire fights just to take in the view. The first set of enemies you fight, the Covenant, were unique and funny (at least the short ones were). They are pretty smart, and like to sneak up on you, lob grenades at your feet when you're not watching, etc. But the short ones also like to run away screaming in terror from time to time. The difficulty level of the game ramps up evenly as you move forward. Although I had to replay most levels several times to move on, I never had to go to the internet to find the "right" solution, although I was close to doing that a couple of times.
I liked that there weren't a lot of secret areas to find and puzzles to solve. There were a few tricky spots where you had to figure something out, but the solutions were usually obvious even to me, and I'm really bad at puzzles. And the tricky spots fit into the game--I never felt like I was being asked to solve an arbitrary puzzle just because the game designer liked puzzles.
Being able to drive/fly vehicles was a nice addition. I especially enjoyed driving the Warhog and the tank. The controls for those vehicles were intuitive and were pretty much the same as what you use to move around on foot.
I also liked the way player health was handled.

A Kid's Review on February 4, 2005
Platform for Display: PC
Well here it is, Halo where it was originally supposed to launch;PC. Microsoft bought Bungie,(the developers) so the PC version was cancelled. A lot of people wanted online multiplayer for Halo, so Bungie let Gearbox make a PC port. The campaign is exactly the same as the Xbox version, but multiplayer is the good part.

So Master Chief is on a warship called the "Pillar of Autumn", escaping the destruction of Reach. The Covenant (aliens) follow that ship and then they find a mysterious ring-world called "Halo".The humans abandon ship and crash-land on Halo.

I'm not going to go much further into the plot. (I don't want to spoil it for you, it's actually kind of good)

You get a assortment of weapons ranging from the standard Assault Rife, to the overpowered Pistol, to the Covenant plasma pistol. The controls here are just the same as about any other PC shooter.

There's one thing that stands out in the gameplay a lot, apart from the vechicles you can drive; You can only hold two weapons at once. I think that this adds realism to the game. I remember playing Medal of Honor games and the main character can hold a shotgun, a rocket launcher, pistol, sniper, and a machine gun all at once. Unrealistic!

I really like the multiplayer except for two things; One is the laggyness. Do not try to play online unless you have a good cable connection and you are playing with only people with cable. Dial up sucks really bad for this game.

Second, is the enormous amount of losers online. They kill their teammates and scream four letter words at people for no reason.But still, there are a lot of nice people too. I just wish there was some way to kick people out of your game.
