Stu Gollan -- "It’s easy to forget just how important Halo has been in gaming history."
nice score. currently 89 on metacritic after 6 reviews http://www.metacritic.com/g...
Oh come on, are you seriously following meta critic like a hawk? God, just get the game, play it, enjoy it.
Yep, good review to acknowledge it's not perfect contrary to what some fanboy sites would have you believe. You can't take a 10 year old game, polish it and expect perfection, it's just not realistic. Good to see this site's not on 'the payroll'... I think it's well worth getting if you've not played the Halos before. Just don't expect state-of-the-art shooters after all this time. This site tends to score realistically. They gave Sunset Overdrive 7/10 for example: http://stevivor.com/2014/10...
IF a game was damn near perfect 10 years ago, it would still be damn near perfect today. This should be 10 out 10 around the board based on the games involved and just the extreme amount of content in it. No other game comes even remotely close to the content offered and it's all triple A content.
"It’s easy to forget just how important Halo has been in gaming history." Without Halo, FPS on Console's wouldn't be were they are today, i have seen many Sony fanboys hate on Halo, but what they don't understand is that Halo did more for Sony Consoles than Killzone ever did!
Lol Killzone has always been touted as the "Halo Killer" that has never even come close to that title. Halo will always reign as king of the console FPS.
Actual currently that's COD but nice try though.
"Without Halo, FPS on Console's wouldn't be were they are today, i have seen many Sony fanboys hate on Halo, but what they don't understand is that Halo did more for Sony Consoles than Killzone ever did!" I salute you my friend!!!
Why do you have to mention Sony in this article.. SMH. Why not go all the way back and say Without Nintendo and Sega, The PS1 and PS2... the Xbox wouldn't exist? Or without PC's FPS on consoles wouldn't exist... Jeez. Halo is great franchise, some will like it, some won't. Not just people on other consoles.
This is a very strange comment. I love halo. Pretty sure Goldeneye reinvented the console FPS more though.
Goldeneye proved that the FPS genre can work on consoles, but it had to compromise and cut corners to do so, despite being brilliant. Halo proved that the console FPS can rival anything on other platforms at the time, plus cemented a host of mechanics we take for granted. Even regenerating health was a Halo 2 thing, for better and worse.
@Blues Cowboy regenerating health was in golden eye, Halo 2 took alot of fps concepts that were already floating around and made an almost flawless game with them. Halo, like COD did not really invent anything new they just made a couple mechanics standard on console fps's now whether these mechanics are good or bad is up to the individual.
