Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is a complex love letter to original game

I’m a big fan of the Halo series, I can’t believe it has been 10 years since I first put on the mantle of Master Chief. The new visuals look fantastic as you might expect and this will give me a chance to Co-op it on Legendary with my soon-to-be wife Amy.

The first Halo plays very differently than the modern games, and that feel is kept in the Anniversary edition of the game. The magnum is a very powerful gun in the original release, and it was pointed out how good it’s going to feel to go back to that weapon to wipe out hordes of enemies. The backstory of Halo will be explored in a new way with the terminals, and the ability to play with the original graphics is another way of giving respect to the original release.
