Alright, I picked up Halo this afternoon and have so far really enjoyed it. Yes, the game's level design sucks dick and it all chugs like hell. Despite that I still think this is an awesome game. I don't think I have ever played a shooter with combat this satisfying, maybe with the exception of SoF1.
I guess I really don't understand why the XBOX exclusive has to ruin Halo for everyone because it really is a good game, overrated by the consolites but still very much a good game. I suppose I shouldn't waste my time trying to convince you all that Halo is worth your gaming dollar but it really is a shame that a toddler's response to not getting his way is the Bluesnews reaction to Halo.
