Trivia

Much of the dialog of the "Grunt" characters is taken from the Human characters in Marathon 1: "Thank God it's you" was spoken by characters called "Exploding Bobs", which were synthetic Humans who would run at the player and explode. The line "They're Everywhere" was spoken by frightened Humans the player would come across. See more »

Goofs

In the game, the UNSC are heavily based off the US military. So assuming this is true, Echo 419 is the incorrect way of identification for herself. She says "Pelican Echo Four-Ninetenn" when she should be saying Papa Echo Four One Niner. Same applies to the other Pelicans. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Captain Keyes: Cortana, all I need to know is did we lose them?
Cortana: I think we both know the answer to that.
Captain Keyes: We made a blind jump. How did they...
Cortana:
  • Get here first? The Covenant ships have always been faster. As for tracking us all the way from Reach, at lightspeed my maneuvering options were limited.



Captain Keyes: We were running dark, yes?
Cortana: Until we decelerated, no one could have missed the hole we tore in subspace. They were waiting for us on the far side of the planet.
Captain Keyes: So, where do we stand?
Cortana: Our fighters are ...

Great game!
30 January 2004 | by (Wauconda, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I'll be commenting on both the PC and the Xbox.

Xbox: As you maybe have heard, Halo is definitly the best thing that happened to the Xbox. The single player is worth every penny, and the multiplayer is good too. The best part is the cooperative mode, where you and a friend can battle out the aliens together. The only real flaw is driving the warthog. It just doesn't feel natural. Despite that, all you FPS fans will definitly want to pick this up. A perfect ***** outta *****.

PC: If you don't own an Xbox, and you want to own Halo, you're in luck. 'Cause it's on the PC too! The game looks almost the same on the PC. And the multiplayer is online this time. Only one problem. No cooperative mode! That was my favorite feature on the Xbox version, and it's gone on the PC! Oh well. All the other good things are on the PC. So I give the PC version an almost as good **** outta *****
