@Gingasaurus: Not to mention the great legs it had. In 2004 it sold 1.1 million copies, and was the 9th best selling game that year. Of course I think all the Halo 2 hype led to people wanting to check out what made the first game so good. Still, those are pretty good sales for being three years old.

I think word of mouth really propelled this game into the sales charts. I really don't remember any commercials for this before release.

10/10 Best in the series and 1 of the better shooters out there. I especially loved the music, vehicals, co-op and 2 weapons only limit.

To StarcraftManiac - EGM did not give Halo 3 a 100% score. If you actually read the review, the scores were 10, 10, and 9. The first and second games got all 10s though. So yeah, I don't think those ads helped. The game probably would have scored higher without all the advertising bonanza.

The first game is the most legendary.

Funny fact first time I played this I was about 11 or so and off course I walk into a dark place and an elite jumped out and I was scared of the game until I was 13 and loved it...

This game reminded me why I hate FPSes. Played it for 3/4 hours and I almost died of boredom. Pretty good soundtrack, though. 5/10

9.6 or 9.7 is such a small difference... The difference is only 0.1... So people CAN like Goldeneye more then Halo... And Halo's ad-spendings by Microsoft surely helped the score... *cough* EGM gives Halo 3 100% *cough*...

But whatever, Timesplitters 2 is the better FPS in the 6th generation... For consoles. Overall it'd be Half Life 2... Followed by Timesplitters 2, Halo 1, Timesplitters: Future Perfect, Battlefield 2 and Halo 2.

I love the other people who point to golden eye and timesplitters thats a nice oppinion but critically speaking most would disagree! meta critic halo got a 97, timesplitters 2 got an 88 not sure if thats the game your referring to one other game had a 90 tops! Goldeneye 96 on metacritic!
Half life 1 and 2 both got a 96 thats combined average of hundred of reviewers halo was higher then all of the games you all name! So shut up already!

also goldeneye was great for what i was 4 player split screen on an n64 but the hugh maps and sniping and 16 player system link frag parties go pinch yourself!

What I find to be true is the guy who could kick all his friends butt loved golden eye more. I mean your competition is 3 other guys!

you take your learned skillz to live and get smoked and now that game sucks!

Do not let Halo reflect any opinion of PC gaming - the port is GOD awful.

More like Halo >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Timesplitters.
Goldeneye is more legendary though.

I wish all these stupid people would stop rating it so lowly, it's the second-best console FPS ever.

Even regarding it as just a console FPS Halo is pretty poor.

Why is this down in 43rd place? Seriously, this place is all Nintendo Fanboys to the f***ing max. Sure, there are a lot of great games for Nintendo systems, but Halo definitely deserves better than a lot of the ones ahead of it. Definitely more so than MP and MP3 (which is in 10th place! That makes no sense whatsoever).

I agree with smee. I wish PC gamers would stop comparing it to PC games (unless you specifically mean the PC version) because most people only talk about the Xbox version. I mean come on, on a sixth-generation console you can't find a better FPS except for maybe Halo 2.

counter strike is online multiplayer only original halflife no vehicles and way to linear like playing a track game halo 1 also sold over mill on pc too. large weapon variety cars tanks ghosts wide open spaces way less linear then half life. I loved both games but halo is the best console shooter ever.HALFLIFE 2 copied halo by adding vehicles and the driving in half life 2 sucked. So quit already comparing the 2

lol...Comparing to the amount of First Person Shooter games to this day....Half Life/Counter Strike and Unreal Tournament are more fun to play than Halo. Halo IS an average FPS. Microsoft just spends ALOT ALOT OF MONEY and I mean ALOT on "advertisements for master chief".
They are trying to suck as much people in the game, when there are better First person shooter games out there hehe :) The ones that say they love halo...are obviously Blind Folded :)
--I have every single video game console since ColecoVision to date. Competed in plenty of tournaments especially first person games. But Halo lol is just a reg first person game.

Very overrated FPS shooter that was supposed to come out for the PC but was dumb down for the consoles instead. Borrowed every idea from Half-life and wasn't original in the least. Why this game was so popular I'll never understand.
