Hi, I would like to know the difference between the xbox and pc versions of Halo, like the 6 new maps and all the differences.
Theres no difference, except for the online multiplayer
Thats what I mean.=p
Single player: Almost no difference, except more marine reinforcements to make up the fact that co-op from the xbox version is gone Multiplayer:6 new maps, and you can actually play online, unlike the xbox version where you can only play on LAN (considered pretty revolutionary back in 1999, where most games only have split screen multiplayer).
To be more specific about the multiplayer aspect:
A game of Halo can have up to 16 players at one time. All the original Halo gametypes are included. In multiplayer, there are two new weapons: the Fuel Rod Cannon and the Flamethrower.
The FRC is much like the ones seen used by Grunts in Two Betrayals. They run on a battery, and can fire 5 rapid shots before overheating. The Flamethrower is self-explanatory. Slow-moving and very limited range, but if you can hit something, you'll destroy it quickly.
Also, in maps that have vehicles, the Banshee is now an option. Exact same vehicle as in the single player campaign, except like all MP vehicles, it cannot be destroyed.
what are the six new maps though...i know the shade gun is new to multiplayer..im buying an xbox and hal0 1 and 2
w00t thx =)
