Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary

Post  Nebula427 on Wed Nov 16, 2011 3:20 am

So what does everybody think about this release? I feel they nailed the single player. They didn't change the gameplay, they added a few Easter Eggs to reference other Halo games and you can play with both old and new graphics. However, I feel they completely failed with the multiplayer aspect. If I want to play Reach multiplayer, I will just play Reach. They claim the old net code (or lack there of) wouldn't work with the current for of Live. Yet they managed to make online co-op work. Something smells fishy if you ask me.

While the single player in Halo is the best of the series (IMO) I feel the significance of Halo revolves around the multiplayer. If you can't recreate that then you haven't recreated Halo: Combat Evolved. Without the multiplayer, this should have been a $15 download.

The original Halo multiplay is what got me into first person multiplay in general. We would have LAN parties once a week after work. It was awesome.

I have never played the original Halo (Halo Reach was my first) so I'm interested in picking it up. I don't care at all about the multiplayer, but I was interested enough in the Halo story to want to play through the series. I'll probably be picking it up.
