Summary: I wouldn't care if the game looked like the original. Every Halo CE fan's dream was to play the MP on XBL. I wonder how long 343 spent on making this? Not long I presume since they reused Reach's MP. I guess I'll settle for Halo CE on the PC ...
Pros: Switching graphics between old and new is gimmicky, but cool. Sound is vastly improved from the original Halo CE.
Cons: Character models seem chunky, not bulky. So it makes Johnson look inadvertedly fat and not muscular. Multiplayer is the biggest disappointment of all as it uses Halo Reach's MP engine. This means the assault rifle has 32 rounds, the beloved overpowered pistol isn't there, etc. Really? I heard tha...
Summary: After Bungie's departure from the Halo franchise, Microsoft rounded up a rag-tag squad of code monkeys and veteran developers that just couldn't let go of the series. Together these people formed what we now know as 343 Industries, dedicated to continue bringing your frequent Halo fix.
Summary: I'm a huge Halo fan, but this game was probably unnecessary. Probably no one will read my review, but whatever. Gameplay levels look amazing, the terminal videos are very enlightening, and the 100,000 Reach cR you get from finding all the terminals is awesome. But the cutscenes are murdered.
Summary: Allot of people spent many hours playing the multi player maps with each other and that I would say is a big reason people sprung the money for this release, to get the experience they had with the original (thats how it was sold to us) only its all in HD.
Summary: It really is just the original halo 1 game with revamped graphics. The cool thing is that you can swap the graphics settings from old school to the new revamped so you can actually see how it has changed over the years. Nothing too special about it though.
It's doesn't include classic Halo multiplayer but includes Reach multiplayer

Summary: When I originally pre-ordered I was under the impression that 343i were going to release the classic multiplayer so give this an average view since it felt like half the product. On a fair note the single player is great but the co-op is buggy and is well known to lag for most people.
