Huge weapon variety: Vanquish your enemies with a vast array of Human or Covenant weaponry ranging from the stealthy (semi-automatic pistols, alien plasma swords) to the fierce (rocket launchers and flame throwers). Vehicle & foot-based action: Tackle missions anyway you choose--be it storming an enemy base or taking the wheel or gunnery position of a variety of powerful vehicles. Vehicles range from stolen Covenant flyers & hovercraft to Human buggies, tanks and more. Indoor & outdoor combat: Fight seamlessly in Halo's ultra-realistic indoor and outdoor environments as you hunt the Covenant in dozens of single player missions and multiplayer battles. Intense multiplayer shoot-outs: Form a team, choose a role, and fight cooperatively with your friends, battle it out Deathmatch style via intense split screen combat or fight co-op with a friend through the single player missions. Incredible mission variety: Fight the Covenant in dozens of missions as you uncover the dark secrets of Halo. Among your many objectives - attack enemy outposts, raid underground labs for advanced technology, rescue fallen comrades, steal alien vehicles and weaponry and snipe enemy forces. Reality-bending special effects: Halo features the most advanced graphic system on the most advanced gaming platform in the world. Gunfire rips off the screen, explosions light up a living room, and environments blur the line between your couch and fantasy. Rich sci-fi experience: Halo transports gamers into a science fiction universe fresh out of a Hollywood movie. With a detailed twisting story-line, complex characters and cunning enemies Halo will fulfill every sci-fi enthusiasts dream.

-Eric quote

At first, I saw this game as a kind of "Doom"-esque type genre. Boy was I WRONG!!! Since I touched this game, I haven't been able to play anything else. The weapons, the creatures, the buildings, the carnage. This is one of those rare games that makes you feel scared to proceed to the next room of the complex you're in. It also has an awesome story line, and music that is just top notch. If I didn't know better, I would say Hollywood had their hands in this too. The graphics are the best I've seen thus far. The texture mapping is just incredible, and the water actually looks like it's water! You can see the blades of grass, see the harshness of the rocks, the smoothness of the ice. Very realistic. To sum this up, it's a game that every Xbox owner should have. This is a game that has made my eyes dry from not being able to blink for long periods of time. It holds you attention THAT good.
