Good Game but Certainly Overhyped,
By A Customer
This review is from: Halo: Combat Evolved (Video Game)
3 stars is about right. It's not a "bad" game by any stretch of the imagination, but at the same time it is extremely overhyped and waaay too many people go around making outragious claims about how it is the greatest game in history. I personally think it's nothing more than a logical extension to the games like DOOM/Quake/Heretic, but something like DOOM was the originator and their designers had to come up with the idea in the first place. Halo is just a logical extension to these games... I can't give the Nobel prize to someone who just expands on the laser and adds a couple new features to it, I have to give it to the guy who first invents/discovers the laser to begin with.
