The Adrenaline Vault by Jim
"Halo is just as phenomenal on the PC as it ever was on its
mother system, and is a joy to play. Directing the Master Chief with the mouse
and keyboard feels extremely natural. Added to that is the pitch-perfect blend
of realistic and arcade physics that govern the maneuverability of the Warthog.
After you grab its wheel for the first time, you can only smile in anticipation
every time you see another one later on. Its a giddy feeling that only
comes when youre wallowing in pure pleasure."
