Looks like what a remake should be. The 60 round AR returns, so it's an insta-buy for me . The voice clips stayed the same as well.

However, I will miss the original AR skin (they're reusing the Reach AR skin), and the CE's marine armor.

Multiplayer just looks like a Halo: Reach map pack, though.

Oh god....the LIBRARY! NOOOOO! I had hoped that level had finally bloody died! NNNOOOOUUURRGGGHH!

At least they are going back to having 60 round clips. But I think I would rather replay the old version than a new one to be honest. I have no problem with it being remade....but I'm certain it would lose some of it's flare somehow. Although I wouldn't mind seeing some of the levels with much better visuals. And is it just me, or did MC look really weird in his armour? I don't know why, but it didn't look as....nice...as the rest of the armours have looked (Even the Mk5 armour you unlock in the other games).

And also, I get the feeling SB is going to c&p that on every halo related post from now on.

haha. Yeah, everyone is saying that Chief's armor looks weird.

Reminds me of the Original armor, from the build of Halo: CE

Hitting the back button to swap back and forth the gfx = frickin shweet!
And the library they say they have made it easier to navigate though the textures and stuff(structurally still the same)

That's what I'm telling everyone. Sure they say $40 now, but Micro$oft will bump it up to $60 like they did with ODST.

I have often hoped they'd remake Halo 1 with the graphics we have now and make Halo 2 playable online fully again.

This is a step in that direction and I'm very glad to see it. Hope it works out too.
Hopefully, all elements will be kept the same and just improved - not changing the storyline and the way the game works.
Full online play and co-op is fantastic to hear though. Look forward to seeing this in the future.

I hope all they do is change the graphics/textures/whatever. It would be awesome to fire an assault rifle and have the old boomey noise, or having the good ol' pistol which can kill everything. Even the voices should stay as they are. Of course, I doubt that would happen...

The AR sounds like Reach's AR (sadly. I loved the original's sound as well)

Pistol is back with it's 12 round, scoped, overpowered glory.

All the voices are the same (even the Elite's WOORT WOORT WOORT!)

There are going to be added terminals like in Halo 3 to have a sort of back story.

I feel it's worth pointing out (in case anyone is curious) that it is the original game with remaster audio (soundtrack included) and a new layer of visuals, nothing more. Other than that (and the obvious addition of online co-op) it is the same as the original. The maps are for Reach multiplayer, not using the Halo CE engine.

In the end, it doesn't matter. I'm still going to get the hell out of it.

Eurgh....that's pointless. We already know the back story to the Halo universe, let alone the first game. In fact, the back story of Halo 04 was told IN the first game!

I just gotta hope that the terminals will be a little bit harder to find this time around, although I think that they said that they are making them easier.

I remember finding all of the terminals in one playthrough without much hassle. Probably would've been easier had I realized that the terminals were only on Installation 00.

Really? It took me ages to find them, even on multiple play throughs. Granted it took me a while to figure there was more than the one by the light bridge you turn on, but even then....

I suppose I should say that I ran into my first one somewhere on Installation 00 and saw the little numbers at the top and found out that there were like 7 of them from Halopedia. Then I was like, "well I am bored time for a quest!". So that was like a day of looking around. I didn't realize that they wouldn't have been some place else not on Installation 00 or Installation 04(II) until like right after I played through Crows Nest.....

It's actually really simple to have found them when you think about where they could be potentially so I just spent the day looking around for them.

Check out this classic Halo location converted into firefight mode with ally AI: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdqH_gG3-VQ

That's pretty cool, I hope they also have the control room exterior from AOTCR as a Firefight map. That's been one of my wishes since the first game came out.
