It's a classic and one of the most important games ever. A strong part of my childhood and a title I'll always love.


what can i say about this game? it's practically perfect for me. since i was a kid i played it, from playing the SC demo over and over again to completing it on legendary and almost every difficulty. the story is very interesting and intriguing, the sandbox, the gameplay, the missions, i love everything and since then i could not be able to find such a masterpiece like this game. perhaps the only bad thing i find is a repetition of places already seen in the initial part of the game, something that happens in two betrayals or the maw. another thing i don’t like is the small delay of the jump of the master chief, and some of the crazy physics of the vehicles.


If I had played this before-- I bet the nostalgia would bring back good memories. Now I tend to get frustrated by the AI, vehicle movement, lack of ammo and such. Story was pretty good, but I felt like this game didn't age that well. Then again I have nothing to compare. I made sure to play through all levels with and without remastered version.


Not much I can say besides the fact that it was fun I vastly prefer it's slow pace to DOOM's fast pace.
