5 of the best Xbox games
Halo: Combat Evolved (2001)
Halo was originally intended to be released on Mac OS, but developer Bungie was bought by Microsoft – resulting in the title becoming an Xbox console exclusive. Apple's loss was Microsoft's gain – players were treated to one of the best FPS games of all time, with a captivating story line, manic action and colourful aliens just begging to be splattered by Master Chief’s armoury of awesome weaponry.
Combined with one of the best multiplayer experiences ever made, Halo was the reason many people sunk their teeth into Microsoft’s console ecosystem. Ten years on, it's still going strong – the recently released Halo: Combat Evolved anniversary edition, which we’ve reviewed here, is the perfect nostalgia fix, featuring improved graphics and Kinect support.
