Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is more than Halo 1 with a shiny coat of HD paint. It looks like 343 is shaping up Halo: CEA to be the belle of HD remake ball. G4 writer Miguel Concepcion recently got his hands on the game. Here's what he thought.
"In a year that has already seen its share of ports, remasters, and HD remakes, Halo: Combat Evolved is one of those few titles that just might have that fanbase willing to pay $39.99 for an HD overhauled version of this 10-year old game. Make no mistake, it visually doesn’t have the grittiness or polish of Halo 3 or Halo: Reach but this Anniversary edition is graphically updated enough that this might very well be considered the "definitive edition" to many. Purists will be pleased to know that the Warthog still fishtails like crazy and the pistol is still overpowered, much to the disappointment of the often-pistol-whipped Unggoy."
