Halo Reach completes this excellent series in a way that will make gamers proud. It’s so good, it almost makes us sad to know that it’s all over. And any sins of the past (ODST) are forgiven.
The Halo: Reach Beta is going on right now, and for the next few days, you would be a fool not to get in on this awesome action!
It’s not very often a game as big as Halo 3 comes along, so we are covering it with two complete reviews, one from Todd and one from Chella, for the definitive GiN guide to the final fight."
The world paused for a moment as Halo 3 was finally released. And after a few days with the game, we can certify that the hype was one hundred percent worth it.
Finally, we find a game that actually lives up to its hype. And considering the madness that surrounds Halo 2, that feat is considerable.
I reviewed Halo: Combat Evolved for the Xbox, so naturally it has fallen to me to review the PC release of Halo. I still play halo for the Xbox occasionally, and I still think it is one of the top five, if not the best game to come out for the Xbox. First off, I want to say that it has made the transition to PC very well. My only gripe with the original was that it was way too short, and as this is the same game, it is still way too short on the PC. The big addition … Continue reading HALO Evolves
Halo is a first person shooter (fps) set on and around a ring world of the same name. A ring world, the concept first mentioned in the Ringworld series by Larry Niven, is a ring band, or thin donut shaped world were the cities and population resides upon the inner surface. The year is 2552 and while earth still exists, overpopulation has forced Earth to colonize distant planets. A keystone to this colonization is the planet Reach. Reach is a massive shipyard, and center of scientific and military activity. Thirty two years ago Earth made disasters first contact with an … Continue reading Halo is One Smooth Ride
For a game that was originally planned two years ago, Bungie’s Oni was praised as the most anticipated game at trade show after show. That praise has continued through 2000 (including a feature at E3), and was also planned to be a launch title for the PlayStation 2. However, that never happened. In fact, it was not released until February 2001, and after playing it on my PlayStation2, I wonder why it got so much praise. To me, it’s just average. I know a lot of anime buffs will easily get hooked into Oni because the game begins with an … Continue reading Oni is Only Average
Let me start off by saying that people who own Macs have been getting the short end of the stick when it comes to looking for games for our computers. But that is all starting to change since the iMac has come out. I’ll begin by telling you that like most guys hate to sit and read about what keys do what in order to play the game. I just jump right in. In about an hour, or sooner if I can’t figure out what the hell I’m doing, I will read the Manual! So with out further babble from … Continue reading Bungie Mac Action Sack is a grab bag of goodies
It is rare indeed to see the sequel to anything — movies, television shows or games — actually turn out better than the original. Sequels usually fall into either the category of either a hastily made game that relies too heavily on its predecessor for plot, or a simple add-on pack that is not really a new game at all. I was relieved and pleased to find that this was not the case with Myth II: Soulblighter. The folks at Bungie were smart enough to keep basically the same interface as the original Myth, and pack the game with enough … Continue reading Myth II: Soulblighter will conquer strategy gamers
