1. Introduction

 

Many of you might remember when this game came out over a decade ago and revolutionist the gaming world and basically created Xbox, so of course they had to make a remake of it since the update to Xbox Live you’re unable to play original Xbox games on 360 but you’re still able to buy them on games on demand, Microsoft just wants money and nothing else.

 

What we’re going through here is nostalgia value and reasons why you SHOULDN’T BUY THIS GAME!!!
 

 

 

 

 

2. Nostalgia

 

First of all I’m a huge Halo fan, well I kind of stopped after Bungie destroyed the series but still.

Halo is often regarded as the game that popularized Xbox and first person shooters, while this is indeed true there are a number of reasons why you should not buy this game no matter what!

 

First, the game is a remake and remakes are supposed to improve the game but this time the only thing they did was to change graphics and NOT INCLUDE THE MULTIPLAYER THAT MADE THIS GAME SO POPULAR AMONGST ONLINE PLAYERS!!!!!

 

Literally, nothing’s changed and you have the option to change back the graphics to the old-school ones which are actually better.

 

You’re unable to dual wield weapons, the AI is unchanged and remains stupid and your marines can’t do anything! Vehicles feel like super heavy tanks and the Warthog cannot be destroyed, the controls are a little clunky and you’re unable to play 4 player local coop.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Singleplayer

The campaign is literally unchanged, all the glitches are here, the crappy AI is here, the same sounds are here, and without any improvements.

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Multiplayer

[image_border img=”http://empyreanedge.com/wp-content/uploads/halomultiplayer1.jpg”/]
There is no multiplayer, Blood Gulch, Zanzibar and none of the maps in Halo 1 or 2 are here. And you’re unable to play 4 player local coop just like from Halo 3 and on, there famous multiplayer isn’t here.

 

When you press Multiplayer it takes you to HALO REACH, so you’re unable to play the amazing multiplayer that was Halo Combat Evolved.

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Overall

 

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!! IT’S HUGE MIDDLEFINGER TO THE HALO FRANCHISE AND IT DOESN’T HAVE MULTIPLAYER OR LOCAL 4 PLAYER COOP!!!

THIS IS A HUGE RIP-OFF, DO NOT BUY IT AT ALL!!!
