yea the game it self is awesome as far as single player in campaign goes but in multiplayer is where it tends to look like a rip off
not only are all the maps from the old halo not on there plus you have to go through reach to get to them

this game was perfect back in 2001 and it still is in 2011. 343 altered some of the things to make the levels more fun. Have alot of faith in 343 for halo 4

This is a wonderful remake of the classic Halo CE. The best part is they changed nothing, just made it look pretty. The fact that you can switch between the old graphic style, and the new one with the touch of a button is a great idea, and shows they did not mess with the game play of the original.

That being said, this is the exact same Halo we all fell in love with. Many of us played Halo CE on XBox until our eyes bled. I had many nights of 4 systems linked, and we played Blood Gulch CTF 8 on 8 until too many people passed out of exhaustion to continue.

When you go back and play a game like this, when they do an amazing job of retaining the same content, know it's going to feel the same as playing on original xbox.

I would only recommend this game for people who have a desire to go through the entire Halo CE campaign again. For people like me, I have done it way too many times at this point, and it was hard to get into it, yet again.

But that said, it is so nice to see Halo CE look so pretty.
