Super-soldier John-117, Master Chief of the United Nations Space Command, must battle a genocidal alien race known as the Covenant following his violent crash-landing on Halo, an ancient and mysterious ring-world.
Set years before the events of the previous "Gear of War" trilogy, the story centers on Kilo Squad, a troop of soldiers led by Damon Baird as they attempt to save the besieged city of Halvo Bay from a terrifying new enemy.
Regret's Assault Carrier acts different than it did in Halo 2. In Halo 2, it flies to the outer city and then jumps while in this game, it is not moving at all and then just jumps. See more »
Lord Hood may have given you clearance, but it was my op and it's my interrogation. We only captured one; it's very delicate.
Don't worry. I know what the aliens like.

When completing the game on any difficulty there is an epilogue after the credits. The epilogue that plays after completing the game on any difficulty besides Legendary starts off one month later with Dare and Sergent Johnson talking about the next mission. Sergent Johnson then informs the Engineer that he intends to ask it everything it knows about the Covenant and whatever it is they're looking for. If the game is completed at the Legendary difficulty level, a scene after shows the Prophet of Truth overseeing some Engineers uncovering a Forerunner artifact buried beneath the Superintendent's data core.

After playing this well-crafted and gripping tale in the Halo universe, my conclusion is simply great. GREAT!!! It has the same feeling that I felt while playing Halo and them some, with great story and characters that you really care about while also filling in the blanks that Halo 2 failed to wrap up due to it's sudden and abrupt conclusion. With the voice talents of Nathan Fillion(of Firefly and Castle fame) as well as others, you are once again immersed and invested in the story. My only gripe is that it was too short and at $60 steep price tag. Bungie is known for pumping out awesome games, especially the Halo series, but I was a little bummed about the length and price. But the side quest involving a young girl caught in the midst of the Covenant invasion is a really nice bonus that makes the single player experience worth checking out. Kudos to Bungie for giving the game a little more depth; at least on the storytelling side of things. Well, for the most part I enjoyed it as I have with the first two games and will be on my way to finishing Halo 3. Although some see this as nothing more than an expansion pack but despite all that, I'm glad that I purchased it cuz as a Halo fan, it'll be a crime for me to pass this up.
And the "Firefight" mode is a blast. Very addictive.
