Halo: Combat Evolved (also referred to as Halo: CE, Halo 1, or simply Halo) is a 2001 military science fiction first-person shooter video game developed by Bungie and published by Microsoft. The first game of the Halo franchise, it was released on November 15, 2001, as an exclusive launch title for the Xbox gaming system, and is considered the platform’s “killer app”. More than five million copies were sold worldwide by November 2005. Microsoft released versions of the game for Microsoft Windows and OS X in 2003, and the surrounding storyline was adapted and elaborated into a series of novels, comic books, and live-action Web shorts. The game was later released as an Xbox Original for download onto an Xbox 360 hard drive.

Halo is set in the twenty-sixth century, with the player assuming the role of the Master Chief, a cybernetically enhanced supersoldier. The player is accompanied by Cortana, an artificial intelligence who occupies the Master Chief’s neural interface. Players battle various aliens as they attempt to uncover the secrets of the eponymous Halo, a ring-shaped artificial world. The game has been commended for elements such as its story, the variety of strategies players can employ, and its multiplayer mode; however, the repetitive nature of its level design was criticized by some reviewers.

Halo has been praised as one of the best and most important video games of all time, and was ranked by IGN as the fourth-best first-person shooter ever made. The game’s popularity has led to labels such as “Halo clone” and “Halo killer”, applied respectively to games either similar to or anticipated to be better than it. In addition, the game inspired and was used in the fan-created Red vs. Blue video series, which is credited as the “first big success” of machinima (the technique of using real-time 3D engines, often from video games, to create animated films). A high-definition remake, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, was released on the 10th anniversary of the original game’s launch, and was rereleased as part of Halo: The Master Chief Collection on November 11, 2014, for the Xbox One.

  1. the og xbox version is far superior to the pc port as they royally fucked everything up

  2. Tanks dont usually launch missiles and you always complain about dumb AI now you complain about one that isnt?

  3. Never played it on PC, but when this came out on xbox there was never a game before or since that I put so many hours in to. Halo is a masterpiece. Great memories of this classic.

  4. Dude this video looks and feels like you slap it together…

    Halo: Combat Evolved is the Doom of it's generation…

    The graphics, dual stick controls and couch Co-Op was unheard of when this was released on the world's most powerful console of it's time!!!

    Let's not forget the online capabilities Halo 2 offered…

    I strongly believed you should of mentioned this…

  5. One of the most epic gaming experiences of all time. This was the last age in gaming where you could be blown away. Haven’t felt that for years. Maybe I’m just getting old now.

  6. i got stuck on on the 3rd level on legendary i beat it 20 times as a kid on easy and normal twice i wasted so much time playing campaign of halo1 and 2

  7. 3:14 How does a pistol take up the same amount of space as a rocket launcher? The technique I'd use to work around that two-weapon limitation was I'd build stockpiles of weapons at strategic locations. This was possible because, when you swap your current weapon for one lying on the ground, you toss it forward. Stockpiling weapons isn't necessary for the early game.
    3:35 8-gauge and 12.7mm (.50 caliber). A real 8-gauge would be even more powerful and, with that barrel length, would throw much tighter patterns.

  8. puts on nerd glasses
    The Spartan known as the Master Chief is actually a SPARTAN Mk.2. The original series of Spartans was almost a total bust

  9. Halo and DOOM are my favourite shooters ever. They aren't perfect, but no game is ever perfect. These 2 revolutionized the genre and, although you can certainly do better nowadays, when taking context into account they're damn near unbeatable. A masterpiece doesn't have to be perfect, it has to be fun. These games are fun.

  10. Unfortunate that Halo CEs shortcomings are mostly a byproduct of the rushed rework after being bought by Microsoft but damn is it still good despite them.

  11. This game is just overrated. The only good thing about the campaign is the outdoor level. They're breathtaking at times. Too bad the game spends to many times on indoor level which is mainly just copy pasted hallway over and over, makes the game painful to play. Xbox user must be so desperate back then, that this average at best game crowned as a console seller. What a joke.

  12. I don't get why people say Halo killed fps when Half Life and Counter strike were just as if not more responsible for the "death" of quake clones

  13. I'm looking forward to playing all these on P.C as they release. I only ever played Combat evolved years ago as that was the only one on P.C

  14. Reviews PC port but keeps mentioning Halo on Xbox and not pointing out the differences between the original and the port.
    I can see why you switched from just doing normal reviews to focusing on turning yourself into a stereotypical Aussie character….. stick with what you're good at as they say hey?
    Although the older videos show how much of a gaming noob you really are, it's nice not to hear "Sonny jim" and over exaggerated "Sheeeeit" every 5 seconds like you do now.

    In 2020 you can pretty much take any GmanLives reviews and just swap the games titles in them and have pretty much the same review still.

  15. "They never sit still" ~ Gmanlives 2015

    And you used "I know more about fps than you do" as an actual response to criticism on your reviews. LMFAO. You are lucky you are half decent or entretaining at all.
