Make no mistake, Halo Anniversary is the exact same game you played on your Xbox all those years ago. It’s not so much of a remake as it is a remastering. The most obvious update are the graphics, which have been completely redone for the entire campaign using Halo Reach’s engine. The result is an absolutely gorgeous game with some really great effects. When Halo was released it was lauded for its graphics, which of course now look dated. But when you set foot on Halo for the first time, just like when you played the game all those years ago - you’ll be wowed by the huge vistas, bold colors, and of course Halo itself extending into the horizon. If you want to remember what it looked like before, simply press the back button on the controller to switch to classic graphics, and you can see just how long ago 10 years really is.
