It's actually a pretty cool read..

June 19, 2003 - Before Halo 2, there was Halo. But did you know before Halo there was another Halo? What do we mean? Bungie had long been in development with the concept for Halo. It was announced for the Mac platform, and eventually it was destined for PC. Of course, we all know it turned course as an Xbox launch exclusive. The point is, Halo has travelled down many paths.


Get the rest of the arctile here. (http://xbox.ign.com/articles/425/425116p1.html)

Be sure to check out the last paragraph of the article..

Weird? Halo as an RTS. That would be interesting to play, for sure.

Still, thank goodness Bungie went the route that they did, that is making it an FPS instead. I'm pretty sure that it would not have been the massive hit it was/is in the strategy format.

Interesting read, though.

Yeah, I read about this earlier... I don't think this game would have been anywhere near as good that way, but who knows, maybe they might make something similar in the future?

Halo Tactics, I can see it now. It would be pretty cool, actually. Imagine playing either the humans or Covenant, and commanding entire divisions of troops and vehicles.


:cool:

Good find, I think I heard about this before. That would be weird to play though, especially after playing Halo as we know it.

I DL'd something from kazaa that was supposedly that. It was sortof weird, but it seemed almost like the Halo we have on our Xbox.
