Disappointing Remake

Yunchang K., Newegg
16 November 2011
  • 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...

This is an HD remaster worthy of your time.

  • 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.

Skywalker Sound, you disappoint me..

  • Summary: The two gripes I have is Skywalker Sounds attempt at remixing and Cortana. The last mission is the worst for music, although the sound is choppy throughout, if you use the expanded score.

Meh

David W Cunnington, Amazon

  • 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.

Not the same multi-player experience at all.

D. Sandy, Amazon
14 November 2011
  • 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.

Does what it says

Adam Gnourie, Amazon
10 May 2014
  • 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

Guilty Spark, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • 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.

  • Summary: After waiting and waiting im disappointed, Game play is nothing like the original Halo, Yes they did well with reliving Halo (1) but why not keep it original!
