Top Customer Reviews
Received on Day 1 and to be honest was very underwhelmed, especially considering the price i paid.
The only collectible things within were a special tin for the game and a small (A2) poster and a few codes for avatar items. very underwhelming
saying that the main reason i paid the extra (almost £20) was for the full length feature of Forward unto Dawn (which wasn't even on the disk it was a code that you had to put into the Xbox to unlock) and you still have to put the disk in to watch it!)
now to the game itself!
they have taken out fire-fight (which was one of my favourite game modes) and replaced it with a mode called Spartan ops (which comes in seasons and chapters) which is ok i guess but there's not customisation on the individual game so you cant for instance have the gruntpocolypse you could in fire-fight.
The main single player campaign is not very long at all and its very generic.
BUT!!! the graphics look amazing and the multiplayer system is a lot better than it used to be!
for 343's first Halo game its a valiant attempt and still beats Halo 3 ODST without a shadow of a doubt!
Oh and grifball is now an official game-type ^_^
so to sum up
if you have played all the main halo games (combat Evolved, 2,3 & reach) you would be doing yourself a favour by picking this up but i wouldn't recommend the collectors edition unless you want a nice tin (it is a very nice tin) as the only real bonus is the Forward Unto Dawn "Film" which is coming out soon on DVD anyway!
The first addition into the Reclaimer Trilogy and 343 Industries first attempt of the Halo game is epic.
The graphics look amazing, when showing the opening cutscene to a friend who had no idea of the franchise, he thought it was acted out. The amount of attention to detail 343 have put into the game is simply stunning. The game itself plays very well, and I found it to be action packed, with constant concentration needed in the harder difficulties.
The Campaign story is structured around Master Chief and Cortana's relationship, but still with a 'save the Earth' style still there. I would say why to that and all the next statements in this review but I will not due to spoilers.
The new enemies have a very smart A.I. and are a challenge to face. Changing the difficulties between easy and legendary really show how well made the enemies are.
The multiplayer experience is equally as good, a graphics improvement and refined game types.
Spartan Ops, Firefight's replacement takes up the role of mini campaign-style missions, released by the episode weekly.
The soundtrack is also stunning, and really sets the scene throught the game.
There is nothing that I can fault about it, it is an amazing game...
The Limited Collectors Edition includes a large amount of extras, such as an access code to view Forward Unto Dawn on Halo Waypoint. Many in game extras (such as special armour and gun skins) are also available.
Now, that aside; the limited edition is very nicely presented, themed around a UNSC mission briefing packet with a mini dossier, orders envelope, spartan armour blue print and a two-disc game tin. It's all very novel but not hugely exciting.Read more ›

Great game, and great package. Wouldn't pay full price unless you are a proper Halo geek, but at cheaper than the game in original packaging you can't go wrong.Published 9 months ago by Daado
