By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

If you want a reason to buy an X Box, here it is.

Story: You are a man battling aliens. It is kind of religious. The story is simple but the way it is done is good.

B

Gameplay: The AI is great and feels real. The Marines act like Marines and even talk to you. But the cheapness of some guns is stupid. You can beat the game just using a pistol and Shotgun and that sucks.

B+

Controls: But the smaller controller for Halo, the sticks work well for aiming but I preffer a mouse.

B

Graphics: Incredible, these were the best looking graphics I had ever seen the first time I played the game, but the blood is a little cheap looking when you shoot em and the puddle instantly appears on the ground. At least Perfect Dark let the blod expand Halo just splotched it.

A-

Multiplayer: not that good, you can win just by jumping with a shotgun. The story is a better way to play.

C

Replayability: You have multiplayer and you have a good 1 player mode otherwise not much else.

C

Overall: A great game, but it does not live up to its hype.

Rent or Buy: Buy it!

8.5/10
