Very Good

It's HALO but with less magic

posted by slim08xxx Nov 16, 2011

I have played every halo and remember when I would play this on pc online. This game was very memorable in all aspects and it also got me into console gaming.

+
1. Gameplay physics untouched
2. Great addition of kinect as well as terminals and skulls
3. Great visuals but...

-
1. The great visuals are good and all but killed the feel to the game in different levels like the library. The feeling of the level was haunting and getting lost was part of the point. The graphics destroyed the mood and feel of halo in my opinion.
2. No remastering of halo:ce multiplayer. Basically the game comes with a map pack for reach. While I do love the maps that were remastered. I don't appreciate that I can't play the original Blood Gulch and snipe people in the head with a magnum.

In conclusion I rate this game an 8 because while it is halo remastered and it's the original campaign. I don't feel te magic of playing this game anymore. It doesn't feel like halo, it feels more like a simplified shooter to me. I don't feel the haunting of the library and the maw. The flood is not even scary anymore. 343 flooded the entire game with lights and just like how they said, it's for better navigation. While maybe that's true, I asked for halo and not 343's halo.
