It's just like the original. I can think of one or two things that changed, like the Flood not overrunning a Covenant position until I'm almost on top of it, but that could be me misremembering the triggers or just bad luck.

Cutscenes aren't as nice due to changed camera angles and some wonky art choices. But ultimately, it was worth forty dollars to me.

I guess that's ok. I was hoping they would change a few things around, but don't fix what isn't broke I guess.

Shame to here on the cutscenes though. Still I'll pick it up when I actually get money

in classic mode though, the game is literally exactly the same. same dated animation, same camera angles, same barren landscapes

To be honest, not changing any gameplay was the only way to do the anniversary edition without ticking off a large portion of the fanbase. At least this way, nobody can say "They changed it, now it sucks!"

It does have skulls though. And terminals.

Personally, if I was one of the developers, I would have snuck in a skull that replaces the flashlight with a sprint function. And hidden a Gauss Warthog somewhere. And made a single Wraith driveable.

My brother and I played for like a straight hour or two on one level assassinating and sniping all the flood and covenant in a war zone before they could get into a wraith.


Finally killed all the shit and got to the un-piloted wraiths and found out they were inoperable lol.

Let's not forget the first level of Halo 2 on Legendary, either.

That where you go the night vision sniper route and don't lose any marines?



It's possible and partly an achievement.


And rather easy to get even.

I saw a video from Rooster Teeth doing it.



There is an achievement to kill the (I think 11) enemies without alerting any of them.

Overall it's not that difficult.

I got this and it's great. It's probably just me, but the game seems more challenging when in the new graphics mode. This really gaveme faith in 343i to make Halo 4 awesome. They really put a lot of effort in this remake, I can't wait to see what they do with Halo 4.

.... except they didn't do anything gameplay wise... they just made something that worked well look nice...


thats like bringing your car to an auto detailer and asking them to build a new engine for the car...... sure, they might be able to do it correctly, but just because they did the detailing well shouldn't give you faith that the engine they build for you wont explode

That's the secret of halo 4, its going to be a marathon remake with halo graphics(since now they know the formula works), on the marathon engine with marathonmarathonmarathon and extra marathon just to be sure. Razz

But on a serious note i'm still taking a wait and see approach to the whole H4 concept.

Bungie made it absolutely clear that they were not going to revisit John-117 in any further story arcs, and tried to make it as illogical as possible to pursue the character further without outright killing him off or remaking Marathon. 343 Studios is going against that desire, and just because they can apply graphics updates to a game does not mean that they can make a whole new one, especially when the original people tried to sabotage the concept.

Same here, it could be a good game but then again it could also be very mediocre.

Chances are John is going to find the other Spartans on the shield world.



Chances of logically drifting towards that one planet randomly?



Lord Pheonix damn impossible.


Chances of it happening in this game?


Rather high
