5.0 out of 5 stars It's Halo, 10 years later and 10 years copied, January 2, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary (Video Game)
I remember the moment I put Halo into my Xbox drive 10 years ago. I remember that it was not the FIRST game I'd put into my shiny new Xbox (not really shiny- more matte black or dark green) but when I put Halo in and I ran around the desk of the Pillar of Autumn for the first time... then when I pulled that trigger on the pistol and The Duke rocked in my hands- WOW what a moment. 10 years later the game has returned with a new coat of paint on it and a new sound library to go with it. The memory is VERY strong and the feeling is spot on. The new Pistol sound it great, as is every other weapon... everything looks and sounds amazing on this game. More importantly though, the gameplay is just like I remember. That's a very, very good thing. It's not like I haven't played Halo in 10 years, I played through the game less than a year ago. It's that they actually remastered it to make it look brand new and coupled with the sound effects, it FEELS brand new yet perfectly familiar. Each level is painstakingly perfectly replicated yet vastly more beautiful. A simple touch of the button takes you back or forward and it's worth looking at both. The Library level is now, comically enough, one of the most beautiful in the game. The addition of the Terminals and Skulls is GREAT! So are the features they put in with Kinect. So called "core gamers" need to get a reality check and realize they can turn 13 years old and still play Kinect games. The fact that you can scan each item in the game to later check out in the library is cool, but the adjustments of the graphics (not just old and new, but brighter, darker, more or less contrast) on the fly is great! I recommend going darker with less contrast and seeing how cool each level looks! Overall this was a great blast from the past and it added 7 new levels to Reach's multiplayer experience. I will, without a doubt, play the whole game over a few times, but if I get distracted and move on to something else in between plays, this was still worth the price and then some.
