To you. What makes Halo...Halo?

Halo in the opinions of many is the greatest game of recent history. Best FPS on XBOX, best console FPS. However, what made Halo... Halo to you. In other words, eveytime you play through Halo, what makes you want to come back for more? Is it the guns? The grunt commentary? Gameplay? Multiplay? What makes it special to you? To me, Halo is Halo because of the AI. The AI is just one of those things that makes the game so much more fun than anything I ever played before. Seeing the enemies do certain things that you never thought they would actually think of doing is what stuns me the most. This is also why I am looking forward to Halo 2, the evolution of the AI into something else. [Edited on 4/14/2004 6:29:45 PM]

  • Where to begin indeed... and huge part of Halo is co-op and the marines. However useless they may be later on, they provide comic relief, a sense of companionship on a remote planet, and a psuedo-reason for you to haul ass and maybe save one or two with the reward of one being a sniper. Along those lines, co-op is just amazing and I don't believe this game would have done quite so well without it. Games are always better with a friend, and sometimes playing with someone can be better than playing against someone. The sheer scale of the game is also incredible. Not only the massive environments, but also within the story. Halfway through the game, you get used to how the Covenant think and react, and combat starts to get a little dull. Welcome Flood, who require completely different tactics to beat, and are the type of enemy you really hate. Everyone laughs at grunts, and kinds of shrugs off most of the elites, but no one likes the Flood especially with the massive chain reactions or death they cause. There's a lot more that makes Halo what it is like the fluid controls, great physics system and variety of fighting you do, but I'm too tired to go into that now. ;)

  • What makes halo great to me is the fact that anything can and will happen in the battles and it hardly happens the same twice. For example: the first time i blasted a banshee out of the air and it skidded to a halt kicking up snow into my face and stopped inches from my nose. I think i almost pissed my pants. (it was my first day playing it last year and i had never played it before or seen someone play it so i didn't know what to expect lol) Been hooked ever since

  • The overall look of the game is just totally unique. The architecture of the buildings in both single and multiplayer is like nothing else in first person shooter land. The use of color inside the levels is also extraordinary although at times flamboyant.

  • I believe the story has a big part in the games greatness, but for me I love the music, who can't love the great scores that Marty and them make to fit the game perfectly. But Another great aspect is multiplayer, who can't live without the hilariousness of blowing up a enemy Warthog comingg right at you and seeing the players flying by while you continue on. and even the way you die sometimes can make you want to play even more. ^_^ Thats how I feel anyway.

  • Where to begin? How about the Gameplay, with the SICK AI, the INCREDIBLE weaponry, the PERECT balance between a shoot-'em-up and a good, TACTFUL, THOUGHT-INVOKING [b] RAMPAGE [/b] through one helluvan original storyline and environment to boot? DAMN i love Halo. I swear to god, i obtained the first spontaneous male orgasm when i saw that first Multiplayer Screen. September is too far away...

  • I think what made Halo the best game is that it had awesome Single-Player, awesome Multiplayer, excellent vehicular combat, the huge environments all the easter eggs a really deep good story and so much more that I can't think of. And that's why Halo 2 will kick so much ass, because it will have all those things. [Edited on 4/14/2004 6:54:10 PM]

  • That's a pretty damn good question: Halo is Halo because it combined the best things about FPS, and non-FPS, and combined them into a nice tapestry...of death...a tapestry of death <<

  • What sets apart Halo from all of the rest IMO is just the sheer level of tactics that can/have to (in legendary) be employed in every single battle. Don't get me wrong, I still love games where to only difference the amount of distance between you and the enemy, and your relative position to them, is whether to use the sniper rifle or the rocket launcher, but Halo is just entirely different than that.
