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.

I knew when I put this game into my GameQ that I would be getting the original game but remastered. I love how there is Kinect involved, but this game was not how I thought it would be. When I first heard about it I was like wow ten years already? Then I got it from GameFly and I played the first mission and some of the second then I stopped because I realized that it was the same story line. I thought the new graphics compared to the old ones would be outstanding, but their not. It still looks old and outdated. Sent back the same day I got it.
