The 100 Greatest Games | 14 | Halo


The game that launched a thousand Xboxes, Halo was the title most responsible for the success of Microsoft's first big green machine. Introducing the Master Chief to the game-playing masses, it was a stunningly realised action game with a soaring orchestral score and an epic, engaging plot punctuated by all the beats and twists of a cinematic production. With Halo, Bungee not only kick-started the console FPS market but managed to bolt on the best multiplayer since GoldenEye on the N64.

Memorable for...
The Flood. Just when you think you know your enemy, this biological menace is unleashed, making The Covenant look like sissy schoolgirls by comparison.
