Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary

Destructoid

  • Summary: It was ten years ago that Halo: Combat Evolved was released on the original Xbox. The series would go on to create a standard for the first-person shooter genre and arguably help secure the Xbox as a household name. First-person shooters have evolved considerably since the original release of Halo , but even so, I still consider Combat Evolved to be one of my top games of all times due to what it did for me as a gamer.

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: 10 years, two sequels, two spinoffs, one prequel and countless companion media later, it’s remarkable how many gamers still say that the original Halo is their favorite entry in the entire franchise. Is that opinion based on objective quality or subjective nostalgia? With this anniversary edition of the classic console shooter, we have an opportunity to both relive… and reevaluate. To start, though, let’s set one thing straight.
  • Pros: The new look never ceases to amaze, Fan service hidden in every mission, Classic gameplay unaltered from 2001
  • Cons: Classic gameplay not as classic as you remember, Only half the multiplayer you might have expected, Were there always this many Hunters?!

  • Excerpt: Please enable Javascript and Flash to view this Viddler video. A transcription of the review is below: John-117 returns to relive his first battle against the Covenant in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary , a reimagining of the original smash hit. Fond memories of LAN parties and almost-ended friendships will surely rise to the surface as fans re-experience the game that made Master Chief a household name.
  • Pros: Beautiful HD restoration, Same excellent Halo gameplay we know and love
  • Cons: Multiplayer taken from Reach, not the original, Driving still SUCKS

  • Conclusion: Halo: Combat Evolved is a good overall package. Playing the campaign is like visiting with an awesome old friend that you haven’t seen in a while. The multiplayer, though, is too barebones to feel like it’s worth the $40 price tag. Couple that with the fact that the multiplayer doesn’t quite emulate the feel of the original Halo and you’re left with a game that is likely to disappoint many longtime fans.

Well-made but bloody overhaul of classic alien shooter.

Common Sense Media
11 December 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is a violent first-person shooter that has players killing thousands of aliens with all kinds of weapons of both the modern (shotguns, pistols, sniper rifles) and futuristic/alien (plasma cannons and needle guns) varieties. While not as visceral and gritty as many other M-rated first-person shooters, parents should know there is a lot of blood and some gore in the game when aliens are killed.

Review: Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
9 December 2011
  • Summary: : Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is a strong remake of its predecessor and shows that the game holds up well enough a decade after the fact, but while it’s still a solid game and there’s a good amount of content to it, it still shows its age and limitations on consideration. The plot still manages to carry the experience without much trouble at all, the remastered visuals look fantastic in comparison to the originals and hold up well on their own, and the audio is...

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary

Game Boyz
6 December 2011
  • Excerpt: When the original Xbox released in 2001 there were two games that most considered must buys when purchasing the system. One was a fighting game while the other was a first person shooter. Microsoft has made sure that one of those games has continued to this day in one form or another, and that game is Halo: Combat Evolved, which back then was a brand new FPS game on a home console system.
