Halo Remastered Still Brings Back the Past

The most iconic game from the past brings an even better experience with the innovated graphics from the present. Nothing has interfered with the gameplay, story and experience, and nothing has been changed except for the graphics. The story, for those gamers who haven't played the Halo Combat Evolved in 2001 and have been waiting for the remastered edition to come out, basically tells the story of the UNSC, the humans from Earth, and the Covenant, a mass, diverse alien group that follow the Prophets into the Journey, as they fight for the secrets of the ring shaped world called Halo. You play as the Master Chief, the last cybernetic super solider of the Spartans class from the war, and Cortana who is a artificial intelligence who is in Master Chief's neural interface.

 

The gameplay has the same intense feeling as you got from 2001. The weapons didn't change at all; you still get the almighty pistol that wins in all sequences of the campaign. Players will still have to face the secondary enemy, The Flood, a parasitical life form that can take over dead and alive bodies of any race and are now loose in Halo.

 

Aside from the story, multiplayer is something that I myself did not expect from the game. The multiplayer doesn't bring back the old multiplayer gameplay or maps gamers used to enjoy and love for what it was. Instead, the game gives you the Halo: Reach style of gameplay that is in the present. It really would of given the players a shock if they had the option to play the old maps and have the same style as the original Halo in 2001.

 

As more and more games have been remastered throughout the years, this game is by far the best in the series of reedited games. Even though you only get the chance to play the campaign edited, you still get the chance to feel how Halo would look like if you played it with even more highly concentrated graphics that will simply blow your mind away. The player also has the option to get the chance to see how the game looked like in 2001 by pressing the select button. Overall this game was not tampered with in any way possible; it still gives new and old players the chance to enjoy the spirit that was Halo itself in its prime.
