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

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary (Xbox360)

  • Excerpt: The importance of the original Halo on the original Xbox can’t be overstated, nor can it be denied. While not the very first console-based first-person shooter, it was the one that popularised the idea of this genre on anything other than a computer while the game’s resultant success no doubt played a huge part in the continued growth of the Xbox brand.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: After crushing the Covenant and retreating from Reach, it only seems fitting to end up right where we began in Halo Anniversary, a commemorative update of Combat Evolved that brings the series full circle. Celebrating 10 years of Master Chief with completely redone visuals, all new story content, and multiplayer support that goes beyond good ol’ system link, Anniversary makes an earnest effort to push the golden oldie through the slipstream of time with a convincing...

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary

  • Summary: Stop in and say 'Halo' to an old friend
  • Pros: Halo's campaign remains the standard that all other sci-fi shooters are measured against; really nice graphical upgrade and 5.1 surround support; creative weapons and enemy designs; co-op play over Xbox Live; good value at $39.99.
  • Cons: Multiplayer is little more than a map-pack for Halo: Reach; best multiplayer levels from the original didn't make the cut; Kinect functionality is gimmicky at best; some level designs show the game's true age.
