Nave360 | Ben gives his thoughts on what he knows about the upcoming Anniversary Edition of Halo Combat Evolved, and what 343 Industries should do to improve the game before launch in November.
my thought is it look alot more clean and i will buy it for my 360
I really enjoyed the 1st Halo on the original Xbox. It was fresh at the time. I really can't say I was so pumped for the sequels though. The remake looks as it should, but I can't help feeling MS's E3 was predictable. I mean, I had a strong suspicion MS's E3 would be mostly Kinect based, with the usual Gears/Halo/Forza/Fable games too. Maybe 360 needs to follow Nintendo and announce a new console next E3. I wasn't that impressed with Sony's E3 either, but NGP/Vita saved their show. I'm a PS3 gamer, but well done Nintendo....finally embracing the hardcore gamer!
ah the game that made me buy the orginal xbox! hope the guys at 343 will do a good job *fingers crossed
My opinion regarding remakes on any console is that if I still have them somewhat fresh in memory I feel no need to replay them. Good for the people missing it though but if I had to choose I'd rather replay Halo Reach again. It's more 'evolved' graphics and gameplaywise :)
Really??? You remember what games you were playing 10 years ago? I fired up Halo ce the other month, and I was like... I don't remember any of this at all... Maybe I am getting old, and my mind is starting to dump useless memories. The fondness of Halo ce is stronger in me than any actual memories of the game. No worries though, I do that with most games.
Forgot about 'The library'? :)
I don't mind legitimate disagrees, like if I stated what I believed to be fact, but I turn out to be universally wrong. But, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to disagree on someone else's personal opinion. *maybe some of us are just a little to happy to disagree, for the sake of it. ...well, done YOU....well done :)
I own a 360 but this is pointless I have Halo CE I can play that right now it's more awe inspiring than Halo anniversary. It was perfect the way it was adding graphics and stuff will ruin the feeling and atmosphere it wouldn't feel the same but Halo Reach's failure was to blame
As good as Halo is this is kind of pointless, LOL Microsoft running out of games they have to go backwards instead of fowards!!
Bet you love HD remakes on your precious PS3 though :P
yep along with the MANY exclusives!!
Wow, you just admitted openly to being a brazen hypocrite. Who does that? Only a fool.
Clizzz u never heard of sarcasm.
@Clizzz, I know right? He pretty much just said 'I'm a moronic fanboy'. @kza, you're pretty bad at sarcasm then. You should also know it translates horribly through text.
Couldn't the same be said about Sony and the MGS hd remake?
The mgs remakes are also on 360....
If they want to improve Halo Anniversary before release, they should give what most of the people who were excited for the announcement always wanted.. CE xbl mp. Adding a map pack for what many halo fans consider to be the worst halo game released is a huge slap in the face to fans. I hope 343 have something planned to make up for this blatant disregard of the loyal mp fanbase.
I'm wondering who all these people are that voted Reach as the "worst halo game released"? I think the Reach is the most fun MP so far in the series. I also know a lot of people that feel the same way. The number of people that play it daily seems to disagree with your statement. I think it's a awesome deal, and I'm sure most of the people that aren't PS3 only owner would agree.
I'd like to know who the people who think it's actually a fun MP are too? Halo Reach for me lacks that adrenaline rush when you come out and win a 2v1 in an impossible situation. I used to be able to play Halo 3 all day long without getting bored once, with Reach I struggle to play for an hour. Each to their own though but there are a lot of people who didn't like Reach and found it slow, methodical and boring.. I can't see why they wouldn't just charge $60 for this and include CE MP while also having a free downloadable map pack for those of you who love Reach. That way everyone is happy.
I'll link mine right after you link yours.
So glad, gettin a 360 only for this This game is legendary and is the only good halo for me
. I think it's a great idea but as impossible as this sounds, I would of liked if it was sold across ALL platforms including the Wii and PS3. Halo did a lot for gaming and why shouldn't it be celebrated on as many platforms as possible. It should, at the very least, definitely be a part of the PC community since they had a big part in making Halo the game, what it is today...one of the best fps ever. From what I've seen so far, it's not based off of the Reach engine. The Reach engine is a fantastic piece of technology and while it definitely looks better than the original, I think M$ should of commissioned Bungie, the original creators of the franchise, the contract to remaster the entire campaign from scratch with the new engine. Then allow the community to vote for the top 8 maps from the various games and include them in the package.
Why can't they include ALL Halo CE maps and not just seven, also why Halo 2 maps. I never got to play mp, except system link, so playing all the old maps would be fun.
I think it's brilliant. Simply unexpected to come out at; 1. Budget price 2. That soon around all the awesome game releases
