Halo video game review by Austin

Bent on Humankind's extermination, a powerful fellowship of alien races known as the Covenant is wiping out the Earth's fledgling interstellar empire. You and the other surviving defenders of a devastated colony-world make a desperate attempt to lure the alien fleet away from Earth. Shot down and marooned on the ancient ring-world Halo, you begin a guerilla-war against the Covenant. Fight for humanity against an alien onslaught as you race to uncover the mysteries of Halo.

My Review

Ah, Halo: Combat Evolved. One of the best video games that I've ever played. Well, one of the best video game series I've ever played. Since Halo: Reach came out a few weeks ago, there are now six Halo games. And I've stayed with 'em through every game.

Years ago I got an Xbox (this was before the Xbox 360 came out) and the first Halo game. And I played. And played. And played some more. I could not get enough of this awesome game that would soon become one of the most well known series of video games in existence. A few years later, Halo 2 came out. I stayed up all night long playing. I was honestly amazed by the quality and sheer awesomeness of that game. And finally, Halo 3. Insanely cool. Drew and I beat it on Legendary the night it came out. Which is hard. Really hard.We even dedicated a meal we had that night at four in the morning to Halo. Hot dogs and potato chips. And every time I eat a hot dog I remember Halo. Since then, Halo Wars, Halo: ODST and Halo: Reach has come out. These games tell the story of when The War starts.

Halo Wars is pretty much just a strategy game. You are commanding troops into battle, telling who and what where to go. You build bases, claim territory and pretty much do everything you need to do to win a war. You are the eyes and ears to all human infantry. Now, a lot of people don't like this. The whole time you are invisible, floating eyes flying over battling people/aliens.  If you don't like the sound of this, buy the game anyways. The cut scenes are friggen' awesome.

Halo: ODST is the same as the first three, game play wise. But, long story short, it was a rip-off. The story line was completely pointless and just plain boring. This is by far the worst of the Halo games. I was extremelly disappointed. I have nothing else to say.

Halo: Reach. The newest of the Halo games and, sadly, the only one that I have yet to play. I have little knowledge on it but am anticipating the moment that I am able to play it. I've heard great things about it. But I do know one thing about it. There are few words to describe it and I am sure that one of them is epic.

Halo is great. End of story. Sorry all of you Call of Duty lovers but in my opinion, it's just better.


Hey all you people who read for fun. U R COOL.

*Rated M for mature. There is some brief language (pg-13) but the battle scenes and violence is what gives this game an M rating.
