I dunno, I just never saw what the big deal about Halo was in the first place. From all the screenshots I have seen of this game I just was never impressed, it looks way too cartoonish to me with bland textures and I just see nothing innovative about it at all. Now I hear it runs crappy too, there is nothing complicated in the rendering to make it run like that. I never considered buying it for a minute. If Halo's your thing, go for it I guess, but it doesn't ring my bell. Of course that's just my opinion. People in this thread have said, "it's not boring like Unreal 2". Don't get that either, Unreal 2 was anything but boring to me. I guess if some people aren't fragging every second of a game, it's boring. That's not what I play games for. The rendering in Halo can't even begin to compare with Unreal 2, not even close. I hear the sound in Halo is supposed to be good, but again, Unreal 2 has probably the best sound (to produce the atmosphere) of any game I have played so far. There are so many multiplayer's around (frag, frag, and frag some more) that they seem to have forgotten or just do not know how to appreciate a good single player game. These comments are from a person who plays single player games only, I just have no use for multiplayer (I know I'm in the minority). Now multiplayer is boring to me. To each his own.
