Review

I have not felt this strongly about a video game since Nintendo released Mario 64 with the debut of their Nintendo 64 cartridge based console. Playing Halo gave me a new gaming experience. I went through emotions and feelings playing this game that I had never experienced before. There is no feeling like the feeling of playing a game that seems to be ahead of its time. Halo is definitely ahead of its time and a 10 out of 10 rating for this game may not even do it justice.

The levels in this game are enormous and absolutely gorgeous. There are so many enemies and helpers on the screen at one time and yet there is absolutely no frame rate dropage which plagues the PS2 and dreamcast. And once again no fogged out objects in the distance. Halo is an epic and visually stunning masterpiece.

The only fault that I could find is that the controller doesn’t really do the game justice at times. It just doesn’t have the accuracy of a mouse. But its nothing to serious to worry about because in other parts of the game a mouse would be a horrendous controller to use. Overall the controller holds up quite well indeed.
