When the Xbox was released in 2001, it came out with mostly lackluster title with a few exceptions. One game in paticular helped sell millions of Xboxs worldwide. Is this game as good as it's sales lead you to think, or was it just a lucky fluke?

Before the release of Halo in 2001, first person shooters on consoles haven't been very good. With a few exceptions such as Goldeneye 007 for the N64, not many games could capture the feeling that you got when playing an FPS on the PC. In my opinion, Halo set the bar with what an FPS on the console should be. Intuitive controls, gripping storyline and an amazingly addictive multiplayer all add up to one of the greatest gaming experiences you'll ever have.

In this game you play the role of Master Chief, a genetically altered super soldier working for the marines. After the ship that he was on gets attacked by aliens, all of the marines have to evacuate off of the ship. When the ship that Master Chief was on has engine problems, him and the marines that were on the ship have to make an emergency landing on a mysterious ring planet.

The graphics in this game are breathtaking. The audio is one of the best parts of the game. The music is all very nice and comes out crisp and clear. You can even connect this game onto gamespy arcade and play with people over the internet. The weapon selection in this game is great, as well as all of the vehicles. That's right ladies and gentlemen, this game has vehicles. Varying from jeeps that fit three people and has a turret on the back to a tank that can fit five people! If you have an xbox, and you like videogames, there is no excuse for you not to own this game!

Overall-10/10
