Just got courtesy of amazon.co.uk. My advice is to avoid. If this is one of the best xbox game's then I would hate to see a bad xbox game. GFX are nothing to shout about. Nowhere near the eye candy of Unreal2 (which you can now buy for £14.99 online). I would even go so far as to say that even though Halo may use specific DX8&9 shader features it doe's not look that much better than Unreal1 (released 1998). Gameplay is the usual PC FPS mixture with very little to differentiate between other PC FPS's. The vehicle controls are laggy/jerky. I saw a picture of Halo on my Voodoo5500 retail box back in 2000. This IS where the game belongs. Everybody knows the only reason it took 2 years to reach the PC was because MS wanted it Xbox exclusive to shift some consoles. Overall the game is just average. You also need a seriously powerful PC to get a playable framerate. Even my P4 2.8 + GF4 Ti4400 can only handle it smoothly @ 800x600. Forget trying to run it on the minimum box specs P3 733.
