Twin Stick Spartans
Halo: Spartan Assault first made its debut on Windows 8 mobile platforms, but this December Microsoft also announced its release for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. For a mobile port it looks glorious in 1080p running at 60 frames per second, and it’s visual and audio design will instantly resonate with long time Halo fans. All of the familiar gun sounds are present, as well as other Halo franchise staples such as Scorpions, Wraiths, Ghosts, and of course the heroic Spartans and troublesome Covenant. There’s no denying that Halo: Spartan Assault is part of the Haloverse; just don’t expect it to be on the same level as its traditional console game big brothers.
