Halo for PC...

I was really looking forward to this, but now I'm not... there are far more impressive things coming out... HL2, DX2, etc.

I played Halo a fair amount on the xbox, but I just hate FPS without keyboard... it's impossible for me to like them... so I've waited for the PC version.

Now it's not going to have co-opt, one of the things I loved. Damnit.

Just curious about other people's reactions, whether they think it's worth, etc. I've noticed that Halo is heavily discussed in almost every games forum but this....

Most people don't care for some reason. They're all like "OOH, HALO IS SO GREAT ON X-BOX" but they're all 'meh' when it comes out on PC with better graphics, more multi levels, a few more weapons, internet support, Mod support and other great things. I can't wait...Prolly going to be one of the few PC games I buy this year along with HL2.

they shouldve made halo for the PC first... to me, console first person shooters just dont work as well as on the PC. having to control these games on a controller instead of the mouse and keyboard just doesnt work.
personally i cant wait for it to come out

I've lost interest in it, doesn't look that great and there are much better games coming out in September anyway (Jedi Academy, Call of Duty...)

I just got the press beta today and started playing it. And so far - ugh! On a P4 1.7 with a GeForce4 Ti4600, this sucker is stuttering and has more bugs than my first apartment. I'm quite shocked - and majorly disappointed.

Further updates as I progress through the levels, assuming F-Zero or Tron 2.0 doesn't yank me away.

Halo on X-Box is inherently more fun than it will be on the PC because you're (in most cases) playing with 8 to 16 to even more guys right there in the same room. It's even more fun than a lan party since you don't have anything like a computer between you and opponets.

I might buy it, after HL2 and all the other great games coming out...

Played it a little on the xbox and was very impressed. Can't wait for it to be released on the PC. Be interesting to see what improrvments they have made to it since the xbox. Remeber it was always going to be an PC title till Microsoft stepped in.

1) it's 4 years delayed
2) Half-Life 2/UT2K3/DOOM3 (aka it's graphics are outdated)
3) Since the whole point of buying Halo was for a XBox exclusive those that REALLY wanted the game went out and bought a XBox and consumer interest has waned.

1) Yeah, and I am pissed off about that
2) The graphics are improved...
3) A lot of people like me weren't about to buy a crappy console for one game.

HALO
I don't think it was revolutionary...

Now MARATHON was revolutionary...

First FPS with anything remotely resembling a story that I can remember.

Halo was supposed to be revolutionary, the reason it was not was because microsoft, liked it too much, decided to kill it for the PC which it was being designed for if this game came out 4 years ago the way it it going to be put out now for the PC, it would have been revolutionary, but you know, microsoft had to have their way and ruin a good thing

Halo wasn't that impressive IMO. The co-op was fun. I dont see how it was revolutionary. What did it do that other PC games haven't already done?

I think it's a top notch console FPS, but thats just it, it's a console FPS and they will always be inferior cause you're using a gamepad. The control just isn't there

I would say that it was revolutionary in terms of Console FPS's but not FPS's in general...

compare Halo to Quake III on the PS2.

I'm unsure on this one. I mean damn did they drop the ball on this one! How could it take that damn long to port over to the PC? And having to remove features (mainly coop) in the process? I can only shake my head.

It was actually displayed at MacWorld a long time ago, bungie used to be a mac-only company.

If it had come out then, instead of Microsoft doing its usual thing... it would have been an amazing, revolutionary game.

Revolutionary FPS? TERMINATOR: FUTURE SHOCK, first game to use mouselook correctly, brilliant story, great gameplay and amazing graphics (for back then).

Actually...they should've stuck to what they were doing and released it for the Mac first. Then the PC. Or at least just the PC and Mac, whichever first.

Stupid Microsoft...

God I loved that series.. All that time in my band directors office when I should have been playing with Finale I was playing this & Marathon 2/3 on his Power PC.

The whole series was incredbile and if there were more like it on the Mac platform I would have gone that way a long time ago.
