Halo gets played!

The guys over at Gamespot get to play the long awaited game Halo. After months of waiting, Gamespot tells the rest of us what it was like when they got a chance to play the game Halo on the Xbox. Here’s a small viewing of what they had to say..

The build of the game at Gamestock had only a single level, but it contained more than enough action to keep us busy for a while. The levels start a player off in a flying scout vehicle that’s skimming over the alien sea above cresting waves. After circling the beach below a few times, the scout vehicle touches down and unloads the player’s character, as well as a jeep with a mounted gattling gun. Manning this gun is a computer-controlled member of the player’s military unit, and he does a great job of tracking enemies and providing cover fire, even while the player’s jeep bounces across the uneven terrain. Controlling this jeep is a relatively simple task that requires input from both of the Xbox controller’s analog sticks. The left stick is mapped to the jeep’s accelerator and brakes, and the right analog stick controls the vehicle’s steering. The steering is a little sluggish, however, because the right stick controls not only the wheels of the jeep, but also the third-person perspective. That is, when players turn the stick right, their camera will pan to the right slightly before the jeep starts turning in that direction, making control a little difficult to get accustomed to. After a few minutes of practice, however, driving the jeep became a blast as we struggled to keep it upright while taking monstrous jumps and doing endless donuts in the dirt.
