A Complete Masterpiece

When I got this game, I was blow out of my mind!
I give 343 props for doing the new HD version very beautiful and accurate to the original game.
I just love the switch feature a lot.

Though when I tried to first play it, I encountered a problem. When the campaign is done loading, it would instantly freeze my Xbox oddly. Which I would have to restart my Xbox. But I went to my files in the hard drive for the game and deleted everything and restarted the game, and it work fine after.

But for only $40, I think it was well worth it.
For a great remastered campaign and tons of new remade multiplayer maps for Reach, if you are a hard core Halo fan, I suggest you get your hands on this!

The game is absolutely brilliant. If you new to the Halo universe this is an amazing starter game. If your a Halo fanatic, this is an absolute buy.

The game is completely faithful to the original it has nearly zero changes except for the graphics.

Some features worth mentioning.
-The skulls and terminals are fun and challenging to find.
-The terminals give a whole new incite to the forerunners.
-The (Optional) Kinnect features are fun to play with.
-The achievements are challenging and fun.

-The final verdict-
-Music (9) The music is near perfect it stays faithful to the original with its own little twist and if you prefer the original you can listen to that too.
-Gameplay (10) 100% faithful to the game, and if you want more there are terminals, skulls, and some fun kinnect features.
-Graphics (9) The new graphics make the game feel bright and new. Making the world feel bigger and better then ever.

-Overall (9) The game was an overall master piece and 343 was kind enough to update it to a more modern look so we could enjoy the game again. I really loved this game and I am very excited to see what 343 has up there sleeves for Halo 4.

I was excited for this because I remembered how much I loved the first one, but wow. I didn't like it at all. I was disappointed to say the least. :(
