Hi Louis,

I have included the scans of three pages of the article, in a modest resolution.
Hope you will enjoy the language :-)

In the meantime, I have found another HALO article on a local gaming website:

Summary of content of the web article:
__Forget about anything you have seen so far. The upcoming 3rd person action
HALO looks better, or actually looks so good you won't believe your eyes.
/* first paragraph translated almost verbatim, ... further paragraphs just in
summ: */
__Story - new technology discovered on a remote solar system, player = soldier
of colonial army, blabla
__Environments - open surface, interior, water, air, underground. Free movement
on the surface, walking and vehicles. Nonlinear, based on player's action.
__AI, weapons, vehicles
__Graphics - cannot believe the shots are from game engine ... sky+weather,
shadows, details, deformable terrain
_Multiplayer - control aliens, too; three players in a vehicle co-op
__Release - promised in first half of 2K. "I start to believe their (Bungie)
statement that rather than play one will live HALO..."

As to the content of the printed article, HALO is compared to Doom in its
potential of shaking the games world, they go to detail in describing the
cinematic animation and other well-known aspects of HALO. The first sentence in
the article itself goes:
"Gaming specialists from around the world stopped breathing when they saw the
first movies from this game."

Keep up with HALO site.
