First Review of Halo 369

The Halo Guy writes: "Voodoo Extreme has posted the first review of Halo, the new first person shooter from Bungie Software that's an Xbox launch title and will be ported to the Mac and PC later next year. Included are some very cool high resolution Xbox game captures too." I guess buying the bundle will be a little less painful if you get good games with the system.

    Players assume the role of the Master Chief

    does anyone else keep reading this as "Master Chef" ? Maybe it's just the influence of certain Steven Segal movies or South Park, or the lack of caffeine in my breakfast.

    So the reviewer says its the most gorgeous and awesome first person shooter he has ever had the pleasure to be completely engrossed in and... your response is that it has not lived up to its hype.

    *scratches his head in confusion*

    Oh, wait.. nm

    To placate all those people who seem to think I'm just pissing in the wind to cast MS in a bad light, I'll post a little follow-up.

    I don't think MS did anything other than steer Bungie away from making a PC/Mac title. A small change, but the move from PC/Mac to X-Box drastically changed the HALO game from a massivly multiplayer online combat game into the game we see today. Graphics, sounds, who cares? The game play is watered down into something that's been done before a million times (albiet not as visually stunning).

    For this, I care not for HALO. And when it's forgotten as just another X-Box title and not a real ground breaking popular game, I won't shed a fucking tear.

    And how many people remember Bungie promising over and over that Halo would not become a console game? Or, later, that it would be released for the XBox and (PC or Mac) simultaneously?

    That was before they were assimilated. Welcome to The Collective, resistance is futile.
