Summary: Having played a lot of FPS over my lifetime, I never actually got around to playing the Halo franchise, and even though this is an older game and I expected the graphics to be dated, I was still hoping for solid game play. I was somewhat disappointed. Even on higher difficulty levels, it didn't seem all that difficult, and the levels all seem to be the same (you just play through them shooting limited types of Covenant enemies, and then go back through the same levels...
Summary: With only a handful of weapons and vehicles to learn, the masses were able to absorb its contents quickly, and easily. Suddenly every jackass on the planet that made the mistake of buying a game console from a computer software company thought he was packed full of skill for being able to snipe people with a pistol. Guess what guy, you're not, and neither are the million other guys EXACTLY like you.
Summary: I only play multi-player. I have a mac book pro so I have the demo on it and it's great because you play with the same people and they are mostly mature. The multi-player in the non demo is awful. The people are very immature and it's kind of hard to sort through the games in the lobby because they constantly move down the list.
Stroy is nothing special, but multiplayer is a blast.

Summary: I'm keeping this short and sweet. Halo CE is NOT the game you want to buy if you're looking for a deep, intense single player campaign. The story is razor thin, just enough to explain away some unusual monsters and some missions. Once you hit the 'Flood' levels the game becomes a point and shoot, mindless attacking of waves of zombie like mutants. This was bungies cop out. Zombies are great when used sparingly. The muiltiplay is insanely fun though.
Summary: Halo has a creative plot, some interesting sets, cool weapons and aliens. But this game is way too long and repetitious. It's one of the few shooters I've ever played where I was hoping the game would end sooner. I made the mistake of playing the game at the "difficult" level rather than "normal". Some of the chapters are extremely difficult where you have to kill hundreds of aliens before you get to save the game at a checkpoint.
