Instead of making something better they made this a lot of people don't a game for graphics so its the exact same thing twice! Don't get me wrong the game is great but just don't waste your money if you have the old one or want the achievements I played it beat it never touched it again

This remastering or remake of the original Halo CE is terrible, at first the game looks great but then it begins to show its massive flaws. The game is jittery, jarring at times and riddled with errors. Co-op is horrendous and should have been done away with rather than being launched. Great concept but the fact remains that 343 put out a BROKEN game to consumers and then didn't fix it, which in itself is a travesty. In a practically 24/7 connected world a fix or patch to this game would not be difficult to push to fix this BROKEN game. But no 343 chose rather to focus on another game AKA Halo 4 instead. Thanks 343 you suck. If I could rate this negatively I would. EFFFFFFF this game.
There really isn't too much to say. It is a great remake of the original game. One really neat feature is being able to see switch between the original game and the HD version while you play.
One of the downsides is that it doesn't have all of the multiplayer maps of the original. It is a good rent, but not likely a buy since you've probably already played this a ton and the multiplayer community is really small.
