I think Halo is a good game. It has its good points and its bad points like all games, but overall I think the good out weighs the bad.

I'm playing Halo and enjoying it immensly.

I'm running 1024x768 - 4 xaa - 8xaf outdoors
and 640 x 480 4xaa - 8xaf indoors on my 9700.

all other settings maxed.


There are a few levels indoors that really lag bad without the drop to 640x480 but with 4xaa on the jaggies are gone


I like the levels in that there is lots of good terrain to fight on, not the usual endless flat corridoors of other FPS's. The reactions of some of the aliens are downright humorous as well.

ooo00.... nice question...

on my end, that takes some thinkin...

I know Unreal2 was short, but it was good...

Well, wait, Unreal2 doesn't have multiplayer or vehicle driving...

Hmmm, yeh, it's better than Unreal2... IMO.

Haven't played U2 myself, but not only the storyline is fun on Halo, the voice acting, music and sound effects are great too. Even though Halo is 2 years or so old, it's still amazing. I personally like the blur effect when using the zoom feature on the weapons...especially the sniper-rifle.

Well I liked Unreal 2 so the response to that question definitely bodes well for my Halo experience.

Now I just need to finish up with Jedi Academy before I start in on this one. Hopefully a patch will be out that will fix some of the problems I'm seeing here by then.

But yeah, that basically breaks down into the two catagories you mentioned. Is it different on the X-box?
The single-player game is identical to the xbox version. All the tricks work the same, everything.

You'll notice that as you progress in the SP game the elites get better at shooting you. The grunts never really do that great but at the very end they get a fuel-rod gun to shoot you with.

Think what you will of these, then...




Yes, I know, I accidentally pasted the image wrongly... the next one is a full screen tho...

Halo is a fun action game but nothing special. Finished preaty quick.
For a mindless fun its OK. The story ain't that good... I dont know what's the fuss all about, except that Halo ring thing, thats COOL. The last part of the game is also the best part.

I think the mouse and keyboard make the difficulity knda unbalanced, it's sometimes easy and sometimes annoying (I played on normal). The library part was actually where the fun began for me now thats a LOT of action!!! (gamepad would make me go mad here)

If this game came 2 years ago it would have been soooooooo good, but now... its just OK
