Hands down, HALO is my number one pick for xbox.

I just found another review. This one's at VooDoo Extreme. They write about Halo's awesomeness along with a little history, a little hands-on (without spoiling anything) and offer up tons-o-screenies. Go get it! (http://www.voodooextreme.com/games/previews/hellohalo/)

I have to agree...Halo is probably going to be the best RPG! The fact that it has multi-player capability makes this game even more special! I am buying three games...Halo, Amped, and Project Gotham Racing...I think that will do just fine...Now I have to worry about December's game picks :D

Cool pictures, by the way...you can't have too many

what? excuse me? Halo = best RPG? do you even know what the hell Halo is?

why does everyone think Halo is a RPG? i saw some chump on amazon.com say Halo was a RPG.

i guess a lot of people confuse it...
since it has you as a character and all...
it's an action...

Hey Sinizuh, I'm sure people may be using the "RPG" term, a little loosely.

However, I highly doubt they're meaning it in the "D&D" sense of the term.

Allow me to speculate: Halo is sooo intense and immersive that to some, I'm sure they feel that the term is warranted, as they "play the role" of an elite marine, stranded on an alien artifact, fighting the convenant, to save the planet Earth from utter annihilation.

It's a compliment to the depth of HALO, really.

I stand corrected...D a m n beer...You are right...Halo is an action shooter. My bad. But, anyway you look at it, it's probably going to be one of XBox's best games. Especially during launch.

Azurik looks like that's going to be one of the best RPGs in my opinion. Kind of like a Zelda on steroids :D

I hate to tear anybody away from XboxAddict.com but I've found another HALO review that some of you may be interested in. It covers weapons and the cool, "warthog" vehicle. They're very careful not to spoil anything, but they do share some new things (by personal experience with them) and they also have lots of screens and a bunch of split-screen multiplayer .avi's.

Go get check it out now!! (http://gamespot.com/gamespot/stories/previews/0,10869,2821501,00.html)

I didn't look at the site only because I like to keep the suspense as high as possible! Man, everyone knows this game is going to be sweet! It's Halo, what can I say?!!
