Editors' Review

+

Two years after the phenomenal success of Halo for the Xbox, Microsoft has finally ported this first-person alien shooter to Windows--just in time to promote the release of Halo 2 for Xbox. In Halo, you control the Master Chief, an enhanced soldier awakened from cryogenic sleep to save humankind from a nasty group of aliens called the Covenant. Although the PC version only adds a few maps and loses the cooperative mode, the impressive graphics, exciting gameplay, and variety of weapons and vehicles make Halo worth a try for any fans of first-person shooters.

The demo features two vehicles, a substantive single-player mission, and one multiplayer map that supports up to 16 players on the GameSpy network. Both enemy and friendly intelligence are realistic, and a unique (for two years ago) defense system with rechargeable shields allows for intense firefights that don't permanently cripple the Master Chief. Once learned, the mouse-steering system allows for some fancy driving. The environments look awesome, and a subtle soundtrack enhances the experience. Be warned that the listed system requirements are a bare minimum. Adjusting video settings may be necessary to improve performance on some systems.

"A "Must Play""

Pros

I think the history is awesome, the multiplayer is also very good. The developer did a awesome job of making this video game.

Cons

Sometimes a little bit laggy, and the DEMO version shows less of 2% of what you can do in the FULL game.

"The download from cnet would not open up to play."

February 06, 2012  |  By curt07

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

I downloaded the game and the Icon did not open up anything to play the game. so i feel like I downloaded a virus or something,because there was no game to open up and play.

Cons

what a joke this download was. I downloaded crossfire and that the only game from cnet that ever played. so i don'tthink I will ever go thru the time to download a game and then it wont open up to play from cnet again.
