this is from an article of GameInformer June 2006
begin article
Halo completely revolutionized the first-person shooter genre. Or, that's what you might think if you'd had your head shoved up your butt for 10 years and hadn't touched a pc game since the original DOOM. Here's yet another game that proves that "greatness" is more a matter of opinion. Sure, compaired to Bloodwake or any other of Microsoft's dreadful early Xbox entries, this was a masterpiece, but the fact remains that Halo is prehaps the most overrated game of all time. Hey, do you like those levels? Good, because you're going to have to go back to them all again because Bungie couldn't manage to actually make a complete game. Halo also earns our ire for introducing the Needler, the lamest and most useless weapon since the spitwad. On the plus side, Halo's vehicles are a great way to experience what drunk driving feels like without risking your on the freeway. Still not convinced? Let's not fail to mention Master Cheif, a faceless game hero so free of charisma that he makes Vice President Dick Cheney seem like David Lee Roth by compairison, or the story, which is insipid sci-fi boilerplate not fit for the script to an episode of Cleopatra 2525

Yeah, that's how i feel about the Halo series. Sure its ok... but no where near worth the hype.

Although, Dick Cheney pwns David Lee Roth. Did David Lee Roth shoot anyone? Does David Lee Roth run the worlds most powerful military? Is David Lee Roth a cyborg (Cheney's pacemaker)? Is David Lee Roth the (actual) president of the united states? I could keep going.... (by the way this is semi-sarcasm)

All David Lee Roth did was run around drunk with holes cut out of the ass of his tights.

Haha, I like the needler. It's fun filling up an enemy with needles and watching them run around yelling till they explode lol.

As a PC gamer I have to agree that it is a little overrated. But I'm sure as hell gonna buy it and play the shit out of it.

Ive played doom, turok, half life, and watched my friend play counter strike, and I played call of duty demo in the store. All im saying is Halo is a good game. It doesnt suck. You may be able to convence other people that it sucks but not me.

At the end of the day, Halo isn't a bad game. It's just a mediocre game, and it's ungodly popularity makes alot of gamers hate it with a passion. I've played bad FPS games - Halo isn't one of them. But it pisses people off that it is paraded around as the best FPS around, when it isn't in the least.

I still play the original Doom. God I love that game. I still need to get around to finishing Doom 3. It's ok, but lacks the spirit of the original I think. Feels too much like a survival horror instead me vs. the legions of hell. Wolfenstein 3-D was my first FPS as well. I think I just love the classic FPS games.

Halo wasnt supposed to be a revolutionary single player game. What's revolutionary about it is the multiplayer mode. It was easy to pick up and play and you could even hook up a few xboxes together by simply plugging in a few wires. It's the most successful online console game.

The game is very flawed but it's fun, which is what a game is supposed to be. I think it's overrated, but who cares. Doesnt mean i cant have fun owning people at some party.
