Halo Combat Evolved : Sybex Official Strategies & Secrets (Paperback)
|Author: Doug Radcliffe|
|This is the PC version of the best-selling XBox game. The franchise was originally created by Bungie Software, which Microsoft bought to acquire this game. The PC version refines and improves upon the Xbox version - which many consider the "best first-person shooter ever" (EGM) - with greatly enhanced multiplayer capabilities and new weapons and vehicles. On the Xbox, Halo was one of the best-selling games of the year, even outselling PS2 standouts like Metal Gear Solid 2. The first-person shooter genre is one of the two most popular PC genres, just behind real-time strategy. Were expecting great sales of this book given the high sales projections and exclusive, in-depth content. This game will especially appeal to the multiplayer crowd. Our inside connections will give us exclusive content that will be "must-have" for the hardcore and will appeal to new, impulse buyer types as well.|
