One of the most amazing games you could make.
This game is a start to a beloved shooter thats growing all over the world a game that will always be remberd in very big ways. Ive played all the halos and loved them there amazing a must have for gamers everywhere.This game brought MLG aka Major League Gaming,lots of clans for it and became a huge franchise for gamers.

This is a must have I enjoyed it alot and you will to!!! p.s My favroute halo was Halo Reach you can get that one to! I hope you enjoy this game so much like I did its a amazing shooter!
An amazing game
I freaking loved this game ! Halo had always looked like a good game and last weekend I finally got to try it out at a friends house ! And O-M-G It's such a great game ! Graphics are great for 2001 and the game itself is as well ! The campaign is great with a great story and a great challenge , but I'm sorry I'd rate this game like an 9.1 if it weren't for the outstanding co-op . Playing with a friend is so much fun , Blowing aliens up together , shooting aliens in the face together , beating grunts to death with our snipers together , IT'S ALL GOOOD !!! I especially liked the different weapons and monsters ! I loved being able to ride the banshees and as he called them "Jeeps" together ( I know they're called something else ) . A great game and now that I've finally tried it I'm going to go out and explore the rest of this excellent series !!! This was a great buy , I'd totally recommend this game to you if you haven't played this , It's awesome !!! P.S. I also got to play #2 and it's even better than this one with the ability to be bad guys , have dual wields and some other different enhancements ! : )
One of the best games ever made.
This game ranks up there with the likes of super mario bros and the legend of zelda games. It came out when the xbox was brand new and was totally amazing. Still is. Now that they have so many new halo games, it makes you want to go back and play this one again. This is by far the best one ever made even now. The story was so cool......the music was perfect....the graphics amazing for their time. Almost a perfect game. The only thing wrong with it.....you started to love it so much and then you got to the end.
Bungie's journey onto game consoles was marked by triumph with Halo. Halo paved the way for first person shooters on the consoles and people fell in love with it. Halo offers a wide array of locations, characters and multiplayer maps to keep players coming back for more. From the first time you step foot onto the Forerunner structure, till the last bullet fires from your gun, you're in for a good time. Soundtrack is very important to me in movies, games and TV shows and Halo has one of the best soundtracks around. Martin O'Donnell is a musical genius who has created elaborate and rich themes that provide everything from the feeling of triumph to the haunting atmosphere that something may be lurking just around the corner waiting for you. The story is magnificent and will keep you wondering what is next. The voice acting is brilliant and the cast bring the characters to life! Halo is what got me into gaming back in 2001, and I've been gaming ever since.
For being so old...
It's great, I actually just played it for the first time in like 3 years. It's quite fun to kill little annoying aliens. Even though its old I Suggest buying it. I was surprised when i popped it in that it had an update. Weird because this game is almost Nine years old. The only downside is the driving controls, I mean what other game has you drive with the control sticks? I play it on the 360 because my xbox died years ago. Another downside is the no xbox live thing which means you can't play online which is a bit lame but oh well. The weapons are cool and original for the most part, another bad thing is the lack of the options on the pause menu. Meaning you can't change your settings from the game, you have to exit and stuff. Good choices for difficulty Very easy or extremley freaking hard which is good and fun. and also the multiplayer is fun too. And its got a good story line which always adds to the fun. so yeah I would give it like a 6 outa 10, being its so old.
Great but not as great as ...........
Ok, I have to be honest the game was good but not as good as halo 3 and 2. Now probably the best Halo is gonna be halo wars well of course thats why I reserved it. The game had great graphics for an older XBOX. My question was is it compatible with and xbox 360. Because if it is then I would buy it for the 360 without a doubt. Same with Halo 2 it was good but if freezes a lot and when I mean a lot I mean a lot. I would have to say that Halo is the best shooter game ever. It gives you suspense and information that you will need later on in the game or in the next halo, it leads itself. Out of all the shooting games I have ever played I would have to say that this would probably be the best one. So if you like these kind of games buy all the halo games if you can and if you have the right system. You could probably get them all and play them on the xbox 360 if halo 1 and 2 are compatible with it so go out and BUY IT!
best video game of all time!
you might as well buy an xbox just to play halo. the most fun game i have ever played. The story line is purely amazing. it is a good challenge but not too hard. i play it with my uncle and it is so cool using strategies to kill the aliens. there are many different setttings and a pretty cool weapon selection. it is worth paying **$ for an xbox and halo. i definitely reccommend this to anyone. it was my first shooter game. i started playing it when i was 6 and have still not found a better game. you will be able to play this game over and over. it never gets old seeing those covenant guts. if you are looking for a good shooter game, pick from the halo series. i just bought the new 360 Slim and cannot wait to get halo reach. although every other halo game is totallly awesome, do not buy odst. the lighting in the game is terrible and you can run around for hours looking for aliens. buy every other halo game!
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??
Halo is the first game I played on the original Xbox growing up and I loved every single minute of it! The gameplay is superb, the storyline is excellent, and the whole universe of Halo is amazing! No matter how old this game gets it will always be great and a classic!!!!
i bought this game going along with the hype and good god this sucked! i have eaten things that weren't this bad. the story is so repetitve. fight the flood, kill some covenant, fight the flood. it is like a broken record. the multiplayer is just some cheap thrills. the multiplayer is not as great as people make it to be. i could find the same thrills playing COD 3. the graphics are terrible even for 2001. the sound is even worse. the vehicles have some of the worst handling i have ever dealt with and above all it is worse online because you play these nerds who rave at how they can "pwn" you like a noob. it is so annoying. if i wanted to hear some losers argue i would go to a laser tag arena. please don't play this. don't even rent it. how they made a 2nd and a 3rd is beyond me but this is the worst game i have ever played. it is so overrated. if your friend tells this game is good then they are not a true friend.
