Backlog Quest is a month long special event on Clearance Bin Review featuring daily game reviews of the games that have sat on the shelf for simply too long; old and new.
From Day 21 – Halo: CE Anniversary, Tristan Rendo writes, "Today I played a game that was backlogged for so long that it actually got an HD remake before I finally got to play it.
Yes, that’s right, I never played the original Halo (at least not the campaign). During the Xbox and PS2 era I was largely playing games on the PC, and even then it was mostly the occasional round of Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2, so I never really experienced the first Halo in all of its glory. Now, spoiled by Halo 3 and Halo Reach’s improved graphics and steady stream of gameplay tweaks, returning to the original wasn’t something easily done. Finally though, thanks to the HD upgrade in the form of the Halo: CE Anniversary edition I can see where it all began."
