Halo: Combat Evolved, released in 2001, proved that first-person shooters belonged on home consoles, simultaneously catapulting developer Bungie to demigod status and changing the gaming landscape. The series also kept the original Xbox afloat almost singlehandedly, allowing Microsoft to justify remaining in the game space and setting in motion the foundations of the current console generation. In short: Halo is a significant game. With that in mind, it comes as no surprise that Microsoft is eager to roll out the red carpet for its tenth birthday. The folks at 343 Industries have prepared the high-definition remake, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, for the event.
