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 »


[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.

Addictive Gaming
24 August 2002 | by (Bristol, England) – See all my reviews

This game is absoulutly addictive. When i first saw it showed (on game network) it looked okay but not brilliant. Then ages later i played was amazing after we completed levels it so addictive that me and my co-operative partner decided to attack each other. I haven't played the multiplayer yet but by the sounds of it it sounds like another decent Perfect dark multiplayer. From what iv'e heared you can use tanks,aircraft and the worthog (A jeep). I don't have an Xbox, i have a gamecube, because in my opinion it is better. But this game changes my mind, i think that they should bring out a sequal or for a change a prequal. All in all i give this game 9.9/10
