I never played Halo, except a brief stint on ODST.

Ive just started playing Halo 1 and it is fantastic.  :)  Fire being on LT is confusing.

Err, that's also not normal. There should be a bunch of control options you can choose between, and fire is normally on the right trigger.

 

I seem to recall my controls being messed up on the MCC to start with too, but after setting them back to default everything was fine.

Halo 1 down :D 

Why are warthogs so bloody hard to control?

Great game though, really holds up well today, ridiculous to think it first came out 17 years ago.  The music was a particular (surprising) highlight.  A little repetitive in places on the map design, but to be expected I suppose.  Great story and great gameplay (once I got my controls right).

Onto 2!

Played this for ah hour with my son last night on co-op. First time he has played Halo. He commented how good the music was. Great game on co-op. Even better that we both shared some time together doing something we both love moreso as he's not over here because of COVID this year.

It's pretty standard for modern FPS games these days (blame CoD4 for that perhaps).

:) Indeed don't play many FPS games to be fair even I was initially wondering why my grenades kept auto-firing. It's was worse for him because it was muscle memory....

 

Awesome game though. Riding the Warthog together was amazing fun....

Wonderful game. 

 

Warthog trick is stop thinking you're 'driving' them and just point the crosshair/cursor where you want it to go and it follows. All of a sudden a world of fun appears. Super slide skid jumps and swinging the back end round all over the shot. 

 

I got this in secret santa so can't wait to start once again. :)

My Halo campaigns run-through continues. Just finished Halo 2 and the drop from CE to 2 is so jarring: CE is so tight and balanced throughout, whereas 2 is this bloated and incoherent mess. I swear I had no idea what I was doing or why most of the time, and I actually didn't realise I'd completed the game as the climax was so underwhelming.

 

My recollection was very much that 2 was the poorest in the series, so hopefully it's all better from here on.
