Playing co-op over Xbox Live is going to be absolutely amazing. No having to share a TV set will be welcome.

yep...

I have only played the halo demo on a pc... but it just seems so different from the xbox version its pretty amazing...

the xbox version would have been perfect with a mouse/keyboard setup... other than that it was pretty damn good... the pc version has had problems with frame-rates (with previous gen cards) which diminished people's experiences... and lack of co-op...

The ironic thing is given the similarities between a PC and the x-box (x86 CPU, a beefed up GF3 for gfx essentially, etc) one would expect the port of this to be easier then with other games, from a console where the hardware is completely dis-similar. Course, other hardware (ATI for instance) would have to be taken into consideration... Does seem odd, come to think of it.

Hardly, games don't get "classic" status just be being the best launch title availible. I don't see anyone saying SSX or Altered Beast is a classic.

Yeah, Halo is a great game. I didn't get an X-Box until last summer when Knights of the Old Republic came out, so I hadn't played Halo much until then. I loved every minute of it. And yes, Legendary is the best way to play the game

That doesn't mean it's bad, just that it isn't the best out there like all the console fanatics say it is.
My thoughts exactly. Thanks for speaking my mind lol. I just don't see the big deal (big hype) over it. Out of all of the FPSs out on the market, Halo has got to be close to the bottom of my list. Halo 2 looks like they took Halo 1, put in a different story, more weapons, updated sounds, models, etc. The graphics look like they haven't changed a bit. I'm a graphics junkie BIG TIME. But I'm sure that Halo 2 will be descently fun and I will play it when I visit a friend or two's house. But just like CENSORED said, "Halo=Most overrated game ever."

Thanks for everyone's comments. In no way do I mean to make a Halo-bashing thread. My goal is to play games and have fun, so if there was something I'm just not seeing, I wanted to know it. I'll give it another shot when I get an x-box. Wife will be so happy.

My response to the Doom 3 demo would be another thread, but why bother? Id has been very consistent throughout its history. They make good games with great technology, and all of their game design seems more about showing off the tech instead of being story motivated: 'Hey, it would be a great gag if we could have an imp break through this wall here, it will totally freak out the player!' "Yeah well, what's the imp doing there?" 'Who cares! It's being an imp! In a metal closet!" Nothing wrong with that, but it still makes D3 basically boil down to a haunted house scenario. Walk through this room, lights go out, monsters jump out. Far Cry has a lot of 'wow!' moments. and every one of them supported and moved the plot forward, even if they dropped the ball at the very end. A company like Valve, given the same premise, the same code, and the same art as Doom 3, would've handled things differently. So like a lot of you, I'm really looking forward to Half-Life 2.

Halo is one of the best games I've played ever(I start back in Amiga days).Silent Carographer is a great map , but Assault to the control room is the zenith of the game.Thank God it was released on the PC(although it had extremely high requirements).Halo is G-R-E-A-T,stop flaming its Xbox roots.Hail to Bungie for delivering one of the best games of all time....

Yea, its like almost a whole different game on heroic.. you actually have to plan a strat on certain parts.

BTW, the pistol is also suprisingly powerful. Use it to hit headshots and weakpoints, and you'll find enemies go down quite fast.
