  • Classic Halo multiplayer maps reimagined. Wage battle on six detailed remakes of some of the most beloved Halo multiplayer maps of all time, and bring the fight to the Covenant on a stunning and resonant new Firefight map.1 Remastered in the Halo: Reach engine and inspired by maps from Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2, these iconic battlefields reignite the heart-pounding multiplayer action of the original favourites and let you relive epic confrontations like you’ve never experienced them.

Uncover Rich Details about the “Halo” Universe through the Power of Kinect

  • Analyze Mode – Analyze Mode is a Kinect-exclusive feature that allows players to “scan” items of interest within the “Halo: Anniversary” campaign to populate the Library, an interactive encyclopedia of “Halo” lore. Once in Analyze mode, new articles of interest can be added to the Library by focusing the reticule on them and saying “Scan.”
  • The Library – The Library is an expansive index that provides detailed information on items of interest players have scanned through “Analyze Mode,” such as vehicles, characters, enemies and weapons. Through the use of gesture controls, players can explore the entire Library at any time and then return to the campaign to continue unlocking more secrets within the “Halo” universe.
  • Voice Commands – Harness the technology of Kinect for Xbox 360 to reload your weapon, throw grenades, switch seamlessly between Classic and Remastered graphics and more, using only your voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE GAME THAT GOT ME HOOKED on FPS games 18 Dec. 2011
By XANDER
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The first HALO game was the FPS that really got me into FPS games , thought it was awesome back in the day , and now with greatly improved GRAPHICS , CO-OP PLAY & SOME CLASSIC ONLINE BOARDS added - its now even awesomer , and it's still a joy to play through the campaign again , if you wanna see how improved the graphics are just hit the BACK button as you play through the campaign and it gives you a comparison VIEW of the OLD graphics vs the NEW IMPROVED look ,and there is quite a BIG DIFFERENCE

DEF WORTH THE MONEY ....... SO GO ON TREAT YOURSELF

The bottom line is, it matters not whether you are a battle-hardened Halo veteran or a total stranger to the saga. This is a fine tribute to what is one of the best games ever made. I have completed the original more times than I can remember, and will do so again and again. You can switch between the original XBox version and the latest, which shows just how much work went into this remake. Buy it. You will not be disappointed.

Absolutely phenomenal remake of an already fantastic game. Switching between the old and new versions of the game with the flick of a switch is one of the best things about it, it's insane when you see the difference between the two. The graphics really are stunning and beautiful. So to sum it up the single player is just mind - blowing.

I was sorely dissapointed with the multiplayer however. This is purely just Halo: Reach with old maps on it. I don't understand. I used to play multiplayer on Halo: CE on my PC and it was just the best experience ever, I was so hyped up to play 'blood gulch' with new HD graphics - just imagine how annoyed I was when I discovered they had taken that map away and it isn't even the old game in any way. So multiplayer wise, if you play Halo : Reach then there is nothing new for you here - you might aswell just download the map pack for reach as it is basically the exact same thing.

Once I have completed the campaign on this, I will load Halo back onto my PC to play Blood Gulch, and try not to think about what could have been :(

Not too good things

1st level is boring
too few maps only around 6-9
basically no vehicles in online gameplay

But overall worth buying
well worth money

4.0 out of 5 stars A Touch of Class 25 May 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Released 10 years ago to the day on the 15th of November, Halo: Combat Evolved broke out into stores, vastly becoming the harbinger of Microsoft's first Xbox console and even luring away Sony's ever faithful Playstation gamers. The original, for me, was the main reason for getting an Xbox in the first place because the game looked and played far smoother than anything that was currently on offer on the PS2, fairly inexpensive and had many worthy 'Xbox Only' titles. Me and my fellow droogs enjoyed the odd System Link experience back in the day, running a large cable throughout the house, setting up numerous 4v4 battles of Slayer and Capture the Flag, with the most dedicated of us would go through the entire campaign on legendary (the most difficult setting). So although the remake initially took me by surprise being rather unnecessary considering the relatively small leap in graphical advancement, I still awaited its release with a certain level of expectation. Changing the simplistic plot, characters or even dialogue would be suicidal for hardcore veterans of the original Halo, as would including or removing weapons.. so just what is enhanced in this remake?

CHANGES
Thanks to a thoughtful introductory video, gamers witness a brief selection of in game footage, spanning through the 10 levels of Halo - both starting with the original appearance and then strafing to the new and improved look. Clearly there is a vast difference in graphical capabilities by the amount of additions to scenery but this lacks the stronger effort put in for new release such as Reach or at times Halo3.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed Combat Evolved, great game. 22 Nov. 2014
By Jayde
Verified Purchase
Got two copies of this game so me and my boyfriend could play it together when he is not up at mine, I never actually played the original version but my boyfriend had. In saying that I really did enjoy it and he was impressed with it himself :) Reach was the first game I ever played on the 360, of all the Halo games I played, I think I enjoyed Combat Evolved the most to be honest, cheered me up to play this after Halo 4 which I had a few problems with. Loved this game and would recommend it, played a good few times now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Halo 1 is Back with Online Multiplayer & Co-op 15 Nov. 2011
By Area88

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Halo 1 is back and what a treat it is. I've been playing the online multiplayer for hours and the new maps are so addictive. 343 have included multiplayer maps from both Halo 1 and Halo 2 with the classic gameplay. Pistols, with scopes are back, 3 shots and your opponent is dead.

Here is a complete list of the maps released so far:

.Beaver Creek (Battle Canyon)
.Hang 'Em High (High Noon)
.Damnation (Penance)
.Timberland (Ridgeline)
.Prisoner (Solitary)
.Headlong (Breakneck)

I've already played 15 games of Big Team Battle today. It's been amazing so far. The map full of forests called Timberland is great to play, especially with capture the flag. The warthogs feel great as well. This is been the best multiplayer experience I've had since my days of playing Halo 2 on original Xbox Live. Speaking of which, the Headlong map is an exact replica of the Halo 2 version, every polygon and every texture. I can't wait to play more of it.

I've been so absorbed in online multiplayer that I have yet to play the campaign. However I'm glad 343 included the option to choose the remastered visuals or the old xbox 1 visuals. Same goes with the soundtrack, either the remastered version or the classic version. The achivements look really good and it will take me alot longer than most other games to unlock them all, especially on Legendary, which is so much harder than Reach's campaign.

Also like to add that inside my gamebox came 4 codes. 1 code gives you free access to the DLC to play on your hard drive. 2 codes unlock an extra skull and an avatar, plus the usual 2 day Gold trial is included too.

Halo Anniversary is the best Halo game since Halo 3 was released back in 2007. 343 have already stated publically if Halo Anniversary is popular than (a) they will release more map packs from Halo 1 and 2 and (b) Halo 2 will get the full remake it deserves.
