In the past you could only play those types of games on a PC, Halo Combat Evolved was a first for console gamer’s. It was also one of the first times console gamer’s could play a large first person shooter with sandbox elements. Ten years have passed and how does Halo Combat Evolved stand up? Read on to find out.
