Overall Great game
I played the original on the 360, so there were some glitches. It was very fun. I really enjoy the series.
What's the big deal?
I am a huge Halo fan, first of all, but when I played Halo: Combat evolved, it was a chore. Yes, the game has an awesome story, plot, characters, and graphics, plus the online multiplayer that everyone loves, but the single player gameplay is just PAINFUL. It's just way too hard. It's one of those games that just constantly punishes you with instant death for the most ridiculous reasons. I played it on normal difficulty, and I expected a substantial challenge, but through the entire Campaign, I was thinking to myself: "I don't have to put up with this idiocy!" For example: The Plasma grenades are just about impossible to avoid. When a covenant bad guy dies, he typically drops a few, but when one of his buddies throws his own grenade, it bounces all over the place and can land anywhere, and when it explodes, it sets off all the other grenades around it. So, a single grenade can make the entire MAP EXPLODE! How do you avoid that??
Just beast overall!!!
When I think of halo 1,I think of me and my older bro cause we used to play this game together all the time and i still play it.Its an awesome game,if you can,get it fast,and enjoy!
The least of the good halo's
I cant say this sucked and wasent good. Its a old classic, i mean what do you think. It's good but it's deffintly the worst halo, remeber it's a classic so i cant judge it. but its just not that good, the graphics suck and everything you expect in a eleven year old game. Ovverall it was a little fun so i give it a 8
So The Campaign is Pretty Good The Multiplayer is sick but u HAVE TO have 4 players or it not very fun i recomend this game to people who have a brother or a friend that lives nextdoor becuz the campaign is epic if u got 2 players but if u have a neighborhood of ur friends then invite em over and play multiplayer
Halo vs call of duty...
The first time i ever played this game i loved i just loved everything is just good about this game the weapons the misssions the story is just awesome.
Still good in 2012
After playing the first map on Holo Combat Evolved i was AMAZED! The game is just incredible. The graphics are acceptible and the sound is awsome! Bungie knew what they were doing even back then. Halo Combat Evolved deserves a spot on the top 5 best Xbox games!
The beginning of a great series
The game shows you how the halo series began. When I first played it I thought it would be boring and have bad graphics, but I was so wrong. Today I still play the game. All around it is an amazing game!
Wow, This is How it All Started!
This is a great game. I like this alot better than Halo 2 by the way. I think that 2 and 3 were just like KILL ALIENS FOR EVERY OBJECTIVE LIKE NOTHING ELSE, but this you actually have objectives. Halo 2 did have better graphics but Halo 1 is still a classic and got everyone started for the "Halo Geek" thing. I recommend this to anyone. Great graphics (For an older Xbox game), Great gameplay, and everything! When this game still had Xbox Live it was still VERY fun!
i love regular xbox, i wish they would start selling it again, this was one of the best early games that came. halo combat evolved lives forever!
