Summary: If you missed out on the hype-machine that is Halo and its successor (if so, how the Hell did you manage that?) then this is a fantastic opportunity to catch up. Halo is still as awesome today as it was when it was released about 4 years ago. An engrossing storyline and some sumptuous visuals go to make on hell of a game. It's no walk-over, so you'll be tied to it for some time, especially if you decide to take it on at Legendary level.
