Brad Cook over at Apple's games section has taken a closer look at the game so many people eagerly await to finally be able to play on our Macs; Halo: Combat Evolved, originally developed for Xbox by Bungie Studios and now brought to the Mac by Westlake Interactive. It definitely looks like Halo will offer that special feeling of quality that all Bungie games before it has.
From the article:
Halo continues Bungie’s legendary mastery of storytelling in games, which started with the beloved Marathon series. Intriguing sub-text pulses beneath the surface. Vital information is parceled out in cinematic cut-scenes that rival Hollywood’s best, leaving you in awe — and eager to learn more. Characters display visceral emotions. The music, with an almost tribal feel keeps pace with the action, becoming more intense during dramatic moments.Along with the preview comes the system requirements that you will have to match or surpass if you want to be able to play Halo on your Mac:
