Storyline

Master Cheif returns to a Covenant Dominated Earth on a mission to kill the final alien leader. Meanwhile, the Arbiter, Johnson, and Keyes form a loose alliance and escape from Delta Halo. The Covenant is ripped in civil war, and the Elites along with a handful of other alien races become sympathetic to the human cause. Delta Halo's impromptu dis-activation has brought all of the Halos to a "remote activation phase". They can be activated from a facility called the ark, which happens to be on Earth. Written by G. Eader

Quotes

[first lines]
Cortana: They let me pick. Did I ever tell you that? Choose whichever Spartan I wanted. You know me. I did my research, watched as you became the soldier we needed you to be. Like the others, you were strong and swift and brave. A natural leader. But you had something they didn't. Something no one saw but me. Can you guess? Luck... Was I wrong?

Smart, Touching, and Action Packed

Video games are a strange thing if you really get down to it. There are a-dozen-and-a-half different books and essays on why film gets the reactions out of us as viewers as it does but video games are a completely different beast all together, regardless of what some might think.

Halo is probably one of the best examples of a game that just can't be compared to a movie. It feels like it should though. It feels like it wouldn't be a problem to make the story of this game into a sci-fi film epic. but that's the thing though is that this story is impossible to be anything other than a game and still be this good. because the game needs you to stick with it.

In a film when the characters are going through their problems and when their suffering is at its worse you feel for them because you are a human and you feel empathy for the people you are watching. But in a video game its your fault they died. When a person dies in a film, lets say they are swallowed whole by a monster, you could have closed your eyes and blocked your ears and that man would still be a monster's lunch. but for a game you have to fight and work your way with the characters to the end. If you stopped after chapter 1 and simply said "I'm out" then the characters who die would live. But you have to see it through to the end, side by side with the virtual person you are controlling.

That is what makes this game fantastic. You are the one who suffers, because you are Master Chief.

It also helps that this game's music is phenomenal, that the story is epic, and that the gameplay is perfected to the point of removing any buffer between you and the armored man on screen.

Perhaps most surprising about the quality is that this was a game meant to sell consoles and in the end it did that through quality rather than by simply making a quick and disappointing conclusion to this sci-fi epic.

I won't spoil the campaign here, but I would absolutely recommend buying this game and seeing just how strong a video game can stand up as art while still retaining the fun of the games.
