20. The Short Summary... Dec 9, 2003, 06:58 HBringer
Halo for XBox was great - its about the best First-Person-Shooter for the console (there have been WAAY too many crappy ones!).

But since it was designed for consoles, its inevitable that it would suffer in its porting back over to a platform that's just plain BETTER for the genre (i.e. a Desktop with a Keyboard & Mouse).

But the SIMPLE fact of the matter is - its now 2 years OLD! The industry waits for no one; and the technology and gameplay are constantly being revised and improved. Same thing goes for ports in the opposite direction: I bet CounterStrike for the XBox sucks, too - its based on 1997/98 technology! And beyond the technical obsolescence - After a certain period of time, all the "fans" will have either bought it for another system, played it on a friend's system, or just given up on it.

*sigh* Ah, well.

Who thinks that if you can't port a game 6 months from its original ship-date, its not worth it!
