Not only did it run well, play like a dream and look fantastic, it gave us shooters in a space they’d traditionally been average in. We were introduced to non-linear level design on a scale previously unthought of. The universe of Halo was so rich that being dropped into it didn’t feel strange, you felt immediately at home."
