present day tropical halo ! sort of ...
26 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

this is a game not to be missed by any fps fan who's only means to play the genre is on a console . influences from halo are very apparent right from the get go , the duel wielding guns and left trigger for the grenade are obviously pinched right out of bungies now legendary fps but this isn't something that seems cliché ; this is what made halo great , why can't other games use it?

the scale of the game is mind boggling . i heard some where that the whole island you are trapped on works out to be one square kilometre , no corridors or tight twisting tunnels to keep the frame rate up , this is huge sun kissed paradise with hardly any boundaries and frequent moments of beauty which will make you stop and stare.

the vehicle physics are the most disappointing aspect of the game , i think they wanted you to be able to shoot and drive at the same time which turns out to be tricky due to the ropey controls ( the left analogue stick is used for accelerate as well steering ) also there's only one difficulty setting and the game can become very hard .

the graphics are stunning , it does make me wonder is the release of the xbox 360 a little premature ? this is a game not to be missed the graphics , game play , setting are all great and jack carver has some excellent voice acting by Steven dorff it is a package not to be missed by any xbox owner.
