One of the launch titles for the Microsoft Xbox video game console. Microsoft expected the game to fail badly, and never marketed the game to be anything other than yet another launch title in what was definitely a weak line up. Upon release endless numbers of clueless console newbies who had never played FPS games before decided it was the best thing ever, and managed to ignore the sluggish gameplay, horribly repetitive linear level design, and generic low-detail graphics and proclaim it to the be the second coming of video games, and it somehow garned a virtually relgious following. Most of these were probably ignoring the poor single player experience and were playing multiplayer FPS for the first time ever, realising what PC gamers had constantly been talking about for the past 8 years since the release of Doom on PC. Except Doom was also a well crafted single player experience as well. Halo is not. A vastly over rated game that at least introduced a lot of otherwise ignorant gamers to the wonderful world of FPS, even if it now means that a lot more shoddy FPS games and even existing PC FPS franchises are being raped and taken over to sub-par console versions.
