Ok. I thought Halo was ok, but definitely not worth the hype. The single-player level design was pretty repetitive (especially onboard the various ships/stations), and the multiplayer was little more than a tricked out rehash of Tribes 2 (Battlefield 1942 is infinitely better, imo). The storyline is strong, but hardly enough to compensate for the weak level design/gameplay. I'm not trolling here, I just don't understand what I see as the game's insanely positive reception. Halo 2 is supposedly the most preordered game in game history, but I could honestly care less after playing Halo.
