The Covenant are attacking from all sides. Master Cheif throws a plasma granade, sticking it to a grunt. It detonates taking out four other grunt. Quickly switching to your MA5B Assault Rifle & cleaning up the straglers, Master Cheif clears the way for the troops. If that doesn't make you wanna play this game, then your dumb. HALO is a great game, the graphics are very good. Use strategies to destroy The Covenant. Command an array of vehicles including the M808B Scorpion MBT tank, M12 LRV Warthog, Covenant Ghost, & Covenant Banshee. Destroy The Covenant with tons of weapons from the M6D Pistol to The Covenant Plasma Rifle. Multiplayer is by far the best of any game I have ever played. A huge variety of multiplayer modes are available. Capture the flag, slayer, Oddball, and many more. Even create your own multiplayer modes. Co-op is a blast, overwhelming the Covenant is sheer joy. The storyline is pretty straight forward, not a whole lot of thinking at all. Which is good, nothing but pure fun from start to finish. All in all this game is worth owning not renting. You will not regret it. GRAPHICS-8/10 STORYLINE-8/10 REPLAY VALUE-7/10 GAMEPLAY-9/10 VOICEOVERS-9/10
Hi, Nick again I am here to tell you about the game of the year, "Halo: combat evolved". I know everyone knows someone who has a parent or has been saying to their kid's "I know you want halo but it is rated M and that means mature so you can't play it". But to be honest with you, I don't think it should be rated M. My Friend Jonathan got it on his Xbox 360 elite so he called me over to his house and when I got there said "Hey Nick want to play Halo?" So we sat down in his room and played it. After the pillar of autumn I said "Wow! This is one of the best shooters ever!" Then I asked "What is this rated again?" He said "M" Then I said "I didn't see much blood in there, are you sure?" Then he handed me the case and there I saw it M. Well we got to the next level when you arrive on Halo, I started seeing some blood but It's not like it just squirts out like in a badly directed horror movie it's just a little splotch on the floor. Nothing you wouldn't see in CSI. And you are to caught up in the story and combat to even notice. And I also have to say, the weapon design is great, the characters look awesome, And the Gun play is terrific. I would say this is the start of a new generation of games. To bad it was made before Xbox Live where I bet you can stop fighting the covenant and start fighting other humans.

Halo is an amazing game. It's no doubt that it is the best game on the Xbox. The Xbox probably wouldn't exist anymore without it. What makes it so good? Read on...
Halo is basically a game that take place in the future where the human race is figting a war against an alien race named the Covenant. The humans are losing badly, and decide to create a mean green fighting machine, who is the hero of this game. He is called Master Cheif(his real name is not mentioned in the game). As Master Cheif, you fight the war against the Covenant, in a desperate effort to save mankind.
This game is great fun. You really get absorbed into the story; The game immerses you in it. Graphics were amazing when the game was released. So much detail was put into them. The music was truly inspiring, and the sound effects were also top notch. The actual gameplay, however, is some of the best around, even today. The game, quite simply, gives new meaning to the word "fun". As with the GTA series, the only games that will better Halo will be the Halo sequels. This game is a lot of fun, yes, but it really shines when you play it with a friend. The game includes a split screen mode, which provides intense multiplayer. Even better, though, there is a co-op mode!!! Play it with a friend, and you'll be left with lot's of good times, trust me.
By now, I'm sure I've gotten the message across that Halo is a good game. If you haven't played it yet(although that's unlikely), seeing as you're a gamefly member, put it on your que. You'll love it, I promise.
