"'Halo' is one of the most impressive video game offerings that I've ever seen. The game is tense, thrilling and downright creepy at times. The game's graphics may not push the XBOX completely, but they're often brilliantly crafted, with worlds and interior environments that I would love to see realized in a film."

"We think part of the reason Halo excels is due to the fact that Bungie have thankfully ignored some unwritten rules that have ingrained themselves in FPS titles of the last few years."

"This game combines a great plot with amazing gameplay and graphics, to create one of the best first person shooters ever made."
There were several ratings that were not taken into account for this review: it was given a 2/5 for its 'Christian' rating, a 2/5 for 'Violence', and a 4/5 for its 'Adult' content (language). The date, as well, is the date this review entered the database; there is nowhere on the site at all that suggests when this review was written or published.

"Graphically, Halo is all eye-candy, as long as you donít use the 10x zoom on the sniper rifle to look at all of the things that no one really cares about."

"Everything, ranging from a large variety of texture-maps to well-detailed buildings and environements help pull together a complete visual concept that doesn't deter from the solid gameplay."

"In the end, while Halo is a bit of an achievement, it does suffer from far too many drawbacks to deserve all the praise its received."

"While the game soars in some aspects, it fails to deliver in others. Overall, a good game, but not all it was hyped up to be months ago. "

" This is undeniably the best game you can get for the Xbox (still), and stands as one of the finest shooters ever crafted. "
The numerical rating was not part of the original review - it was added for the sake of our inflexible database here. Thanks, Michael!

"Halo is a masterpiece. If you haven't bought this game, you'll have to check this out anyway, as an xbox-owner. Halo is even doing well in Japan. Now if that doesn't say much, I am a grunt. "

"The best way to sum up Halo could be by a line Lawrence Fishburne's character, Morpheus, says in 'The Matrix'... 'You need to see it for yourself'."
