For the price, it is a fun game. Halo fanboys will enjoy it. However, the missions can become very boring.

Pros
• Halo setting/environments (main appeal of game)
• Good graphics/sounds
• Decent fun mission related achievements

Cons
• Repetitive (sometimes boring) missions
I found some missions had like a fatal flaw where the entire mission was ok but then something at the end would randomly kill you and you would have to start all over. This left you repeating some boring parts more than normal.
• Clunky Controls (especially in vehicles)
• Forgettable story

For £3.99 it's a pretty decent game. The use of Steamworks is really nice, it's good to see this game has achievements & full controller support.

The levels are short & simple, so don't expect a massive game. Achievements & leaderboards add some replayability.

This does NOT have micro-transactions. Previous versions on the mobile version had them, but they were since removed.

The only feature I would like to see added is co-op mode.

Also Halo 3.

A Halo game on Steam? Hopefully the first of many more! I'm a huge fan of Halo and when I first heard of this game coming to Steam I got excited. The game is only 5 dollars which is a great price for the content it provides. Does the game run smoothly? Well yes! The movement is spot on and the keyboard/mouse controls are well done. So I love the controls, the gameplay, the price, and the content the game brings us in general. But, there are a few things I don't like about it. I don't like the video settings. They are very lacking for a PC game. The options are Resolution, Anti-Aliasing, and the refresh rate. And I wished it was Multiplayer. Maybe co-op; that would be very fun. But besides all of that, I think the game is great and worth the price!

If you compare it to other Halo games it will be the worst of them all. But it is stilll a good game. The mechanics/controls are smooth and feel responsive. the story is interesting (if you are a fan of the Halo universe). The cutscenes are also really well made, same goes for the rest of the graphics. I think I beat it within 3 to 4 hours so it is not too long but is has some replay value.

Overall it is a nice little game you can kill time with. I think 4.99 is a good price for it and for me it was worth it.

a quite good top-down shooter. It does very well in every aspect of gameplay and graphics, although some players may not like the shortness of the missions, it's definetly worth a look

Its an allright game, but when theres countless players wanting halo games on steam, and you bring a twin-stick shooter thats a mobile game on steam, with halo slapped right on the title, its just a massive letdown. Once again, the game's allright, but it wasn't really what everyone asked for. Hope the ACTUAL games get on steam.

Just like Spartan Strike, so if you're a Halo fan it is pretty fun. But if MS can bring these low budget titles to the PC there is no reason why we still don't have ALL the Halos available. Reach and ODST were my absolute favorite, but the MC collection is still must have. Halo 5: Forge and the high probability of Halo 6 coming to PC are good signs but they owe us for 10+ years of poorly handling this series on the PC.
