Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition Impressions -- Pew Pew In HD

Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary

One game on almost everyone's radar is Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary edition. Not everyone is a Halo fan, but most can respect the Halo series, especially the multiplayer. We recently had the chance to get some hands-on time with Halo 1 HD's multiplayer. Check it out.

"Battle Creek takes the tried and true Beaver Creek, but adds some new elements. The two bases on either side of the map now have a cave system behind them that contain teleporters to the other side of the maps, and the former teleporter locations have been replaced with air vents. This, thankfully, kills the 'porter camping that took place on this map, where players used to toss the flag up through the skylight to a waiting player above who would drop down, port, and quickly score. There are two entrances to both caves, which also contain a health pack in addition to the teleporter.

Other than that, I'm happy to report that the new Battle Creek is gorgeous. It's strange to see this and then go back and look at the old Beaver Creek, which I always thought looked impressive. It doesn't even compare now with the HD graphics and the Halo: Reach armor abilities, which can unbalance this map a bit as well. The jetpack makes you the king of this map, particularly if you know where the sniper rifle and rocket launcher spawn. Yes, I'm a rocket whore. Sue me."
