It bothers me how alot of people get hyped up over Halo. I'm not saying it's bad, it's average at most however. The textures are nice but the geometry has alot to be desired. The maps are generally bland and uninteresting. Weapons are okay though, along with the sound effects. The only thing that is actually worth playing this game over, is the online multiplayer for the PC. It's stable and is often populated. The thing this game lacks so much of is unique gameplay. It has grenades, guns, vehicles, and aliens. That's about it. Everything has been done before in this game to death. Yes most games have guns, but how many people have seen a Flak Cannon or Shock Rifle like in Unreal? This game may be worth renting, but I only beat it once, and put it away. How people can love this game as much as they do, really makes me speechless.
