               PC Gamers Rejoice 

                                        Buy Halo PC online now!
($42.99-$49.99)

 

    Finally.  PC gamers breathe a sigh of relief as Halo: Combat Evolved for PC hit the stores last fall of 2003.  Halo was all the gossip for X Box, and the PC game delivered the same epic single player missions and multiplayer experience.  Not to mention a few extra PC only features thrown in.  Such as new multiplayer maps, weapons, and vehicles. 


THE Multi Player Experience

    First things first.  Halo for the X Box had the best graphics to date than any other game on any other system.  Trying to pinch that over into a PC version is a chore on its own.  I highly recommend NOT buying Halo PC if you have a crappy computer (see system requirements).  Crappy graphics and a slow frame rate is no way to game.  On top of that, if you DO NOT have Wireless or Cable Modem (or any other high-bandwidth internet service), don't plan on playing too much multiplayer.  You'll be booted for lag if you join on 56.6K dial up faster than you can say Halo.  Therefore, if  have an awesome PC AND high speed internet, Halo PC is a must have.  Otherwise that, I'd stick to X Box.  If you don't have high speed internet, but a good computer, and don't want to spend the $150.00 for an X Box, then Halo PC is an "alright" buy.  But I, personally, would still just get an X Box.  There are plenty of awesome games as well as Halo.  Plus then you can be part of the millions to buy Halo 2 when it releases this November 9th.
