1:n.A first-person-shooter game for the Microsoft X-box in which the main protagonist Master Chief and his A.I. guide Cortana fight through a giant alien construct (the halo) in space alongside marines to destroy it before it eradictes all life in the universe. To further complicate things, the Covenant, a hierarchy of aliens bent on killing humans because they are believed to be inferior, have landed on the ring and believe it to be a sacred artifact, so they naturally try to defend it. Also, a parasitic plague known as the flood have been contained on the ring, and are released by the covenant. An evil and unsatiable appetite for sentient flesh drives the flood to infect and destroy all biological matter in the universe, and the Master Chief must get through them too to destroy the ring (which leads to a couple of the most annoying levels ever in game history). Halo and it's successor, HALO 2, have active online communities, as they both sport a form of online play.

A First Person Shooter for Xbox with an strong storyline, amusing physics, great multiplayer, and great controls. Slightly overrated.
