The main trilogy of games center on the experiences of the Master Chief, a cybernetically-enhanced human super-soldier, and his artificial intelligence (AI) companion, Cortana. The Master Chief aids future humanity in battling the Covenant, a theocratic alliance of alien races that worship an ancient civillisation known as the Forerunners, and a parasitic organisms known as the Flood. In this science fiction setting, the term "Halo" refers to Halo megastructures: large, habitable ringed structures, similar to Larry Niven's Ringworld.[1][2]
.The trilogy of video games have been praised as being among the best first-person shooters on a video game console, and are considered the Microsoft Xbox's "killer app".[3] This has led to the term "Halo killer" being used to describe console games that aspire, or are considered, to be better than Halo.^ Other maps The BradyGames Official Strategy Guide for Xbox and PC has helpful maps, pic- tures, information, and strategies which can be used while playing the game.

Story

In the distant past, a race known as the Forerunners controlled the galaxy. .The Forerunners used their advanced technology to protect life, but were caught off-guard by an alien parasite known as the Flood.^ The Germans had the most advanced ideas for grenades at the start of WW I, for which grenades were so popularly used that rifles and bayonets were mainly used to protect grenadiers.

The Flood, which spread through infestation of sentient life, threatened and overran many worlds in the galaxy before the Forerunners could attempt to contain the threat. A group of Forerunners conceived a final solution—using an installation known as the Ark, they built seven large ring-shaped megastructures known as Halos. The Halo Array, when activated, would destroy all sentient life in the galaxy—depriving the Flood of their food. Delaying as long as they could, the Forerunners finally activated the rings and disappeared.[9]
.Thousands of years later, humanity—under the auspices of the United Nations Space Command or UNSC—have colonized many worlds thanks to the development of faster-than-light "slipstream" travel.^ Many military and law enforcement units in over 60 nations use it--it's the world's most recogniz- able submachine gun.

Eventually tensions escalate between the older and more stable "Inner Colonies" and the more remote "Outer Colonies", leading to civil war. The UNSC creates an elite group of supersoldiers, known as Spartans, to suppress the rebellion covertly.[10] In the year 2525 the human colony of Harvest falls under attack by a theocratic alliance of alien races, together known as the Covenant. The Covenant leadership declares humanity an affront to their gods—the Forerunners—and begins to methodically exterminate humanity. .The Covenant's superior ship technology proves a decisive advantage—though effective, the Spartans are too few in number to turn the tide in humanity's favor.^ Simon Fraser at about 500 yards, amazing for the time and which turned the tide of the battle against the British in favor of the rebels.

"The Cole Protocol" is enacted to prevent the Covenant from learning the location of any other human worlds, including Earth.
In 2552, the Covenant arrive at Reach, the UNSC's last major stronghold, and bombard the planet, turning much of its surface to molten glass. The Master Chief, seemingly one of the last Spartans alive, escapes on the Pillar of Autumn. Following directives to avoid leading the Covenant to Earth, the Autumn's artificial intelligence (AI) Cortana selects coordinates that lead the ship to a Halo installation. The Covenant follow, damaging the Autumn and leading its crew to take the fight to the ring's surface. The Covenant accidentally release Flood imprisoned on the ring; in order to nullify the threat, the ring's AI caretaker, 343 Guilty Spark, enlists the Master Chief's help. Before the pair can activate Halo's defenses, however, Cortana reveals that Halo's activation would mean their own destruction. The Master Chief and Cortana instead detonate the Autumn's engines, destroying Halo and preventing the escape of the Flood. .The two and a few other human survivors return to Earth, after learning of an impending Covenant invasion of the planet.^ Put three Mavericks on the roof by flying the one on the helipad a few blocks S, returning to find an- other one spawned there, and repeating that.

Before the humans can assault Regret's carrier, he retreats through a slipspace portal, pursued by the Master Chief aboard the human ship In Amber Clad. Regret travels to another Halo installation, where the Master Chief kills Regret. Inner turmoil in the Covenant leads to civil war between the various member races. Learning that the activation of the Halo Array, a central tenet of the Covenant religion, would lead to their extinction, the Covenant warrior Arbiter and his Elite brethren ally with humanity to stop the rings from being fired. The aborted activation of the ring puts all the Halo installations on standby: the remaining rings can be activated remotely from a location known as "The Ark".
The Master Chief stows away on a Forerunner vessel headed to Earth, in the midst of a full-scale invasion by the Covenant, who excavate a Forerunner artifact in the African desert. The artifact creates a slipspace portal leading to the Ark. .The Master Chief and Arbiter travel through the portal to kill the last High Prophet, Truth, and discover the installation is building a new ring to replace the one destroyed previously.^ The officers said he was killed when his mo- torcycle crashed after a high speed getaway attempt, then changed it when one officer said he was beaten to death with flashlights when he forcefully resisted arrest.

In order to destroy the spreading infestation led by the Flood intelligence Gravemind, the Master Chief activates the incomplete ring—as the Ark lies outside the Milky Way, the blast will destroy the Flood and spare the galaxy at large. Because the ring's construction is incomplete, the resulting pulse destroys the ring and damages the Ark. The Arbiter escapes the explosion, but the Master Chief and Cortana are left drifting in space, trapped in the severed rear half of their ship. The Master Chief cryonically freezes himself as he and Cortana wait for rescue. .In a bonus ending, the ship is seen drifting towards a mysterious planet.^ Land on a big open area toward the W end of the W ship of the two docked at the S end of the W island.

To oversee everything Halo, Microsoft created an internal division, 343 Industries,[64] serving as "stewards" for the franchise.[65] Frank O'Connor, formerly a Bungie employee,[66] now serves as 343's creative director.[64]
In announcing the formation of 343 Industries, Microsoft also announced that Xbox Live would be home to a central hub for Halo content called Halo Waypoint.[67] .Waypoint is accessed from the Xbox 360 Dashboard and offers players access to multimedia content in addition to tracking their Halo game "career". O'Connor described Waypoint as intended to be the prime destination for Halo.^ Ninja Gaiden Black: (xbox)FAQ/Walkthrough Halo 2: (xbox)FAQ/Walkthrough The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game of the Year ...

Cultural influences

A report published on IGN explores the literary influences present in the franchise, and notes Halo was influenced by The Culture and Ringworld, written by Iain M. Banks and Larry Niven, respectively. .It comments on the similarities between characters in Halo and other science fiction series, most notably Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game: aspects of the SPARTAN Project and the design of the Drone species are perceived as reminiscent of the super soldier program and Buggers found in the novel.^ "Vice City" fans might remember that the "Autocide" assassination mission featured six targets with names like those of characters in other video games.

[70] A report written by Roger Travis and published by The Escapist compares Halo with the Latin epic Aeneid, written by classical Roman poet Virgil. Travis posits similarities between the plots of both works and compares the characters present in them, with the Flood and Covenant taking the role performed by the Carthaginians, and the Master Chief's role in the series to that of Aeneas.[71]

Music

Martin O'Donnell, the composer of the music to the Halo trilogy
Four Halo soundtracks, composed by Martin O'Donnell, have been released. The Halo Original Soundtrack contains most of Combat Evolved's music. Due to the varying nature of gameplay, the music present was designed to use the game's dynamic audio playback engine. .The engine allows for the mood, theme, and duration of music played to change according to gameplay.^ Jan Hammer (the Mahavishnu Orchestra) came up with music for "Miami Vice" such as "Crockett's Theme," which is played on Emotion 98.3 in "Vice City."

[72] .To afford a more enjoyable listening experience, O'Donnell rearranged portions of the music of Halo into standalone suites, which follow the narrative course of the game.^ To afford yourself even more such choices, you could follow that by using a copy of that save slot, renamed to have the number of another save slot, and use it to finish whatever missions you like the least of the middle of the game ("The Driver" or whatever the case is for you).

The soundtrack also contains music not used in the game, including a variation on the Halo theme that was first played at Halo's debut at Macworld 1999.[73]
For Halo 2's soundtrack, producer Nile Rodgers and O’Donnell decided to split the music into two separate volumes. .The first, Volume One, was released on November 9, 2004 and contained all the themes as well as the “inspired-by” music present in the game (featuring Incubus, Hoobastank, and Breaking Benjamin).^ It's like Defender, which was released in 1980 to become, with Pac Man, one of the biggest money-making arcade games of all time.

.The second release, Volume 2, contained the rest of the music, much of which was incomplete or not included in the first soundtrack, as the first soundtrack was shipped before the game was released;[74] the second volume was released on April 25, 2006.

[76] The tracks are presented, similarly to the previous soundtrack for Halo 2,[74] in a suite form. Unlike previous soundtracks, where much of the music had been synthesized on computer, the soundtrack for Halo 3 was recorded using a 60-piece orchestra, along with a 24-voice chorus.[77] The final soundtrack was recorded by the Northwest Sinfonia at Studio X in Seattle, Washington.[78] .The soundtracks were bundled and released as a box set in December 2008.[79] A soundtrack for Halo 3: ODST was released alongside the game and included many of the tracks from the game.^ The Stats record how many deliveries were made whether or not they were made while doing the four sets of deliveries in a row, but you have to do all four in a row for 100% completion of the game.

For Halo Wars, the task of creating the game's music fell to Stephen Rippy. Rippy listened to O'Donnell's soundtracks for inspiration and incorporated the Halo theme into parts of his arrangements. .In addition to synthesized and orchestral components, the composer focused on the choir and piano as essential elements, feeling these were important in creating the "Halo sound".[81] Rather than use the Northwest Sinfonia, Rippy travelled to Prague and recorded with the FILMharmonic Orchestra before returning to the United States to complete the music.^ The "camera" movement created by using the right analogue stick is limited in speed and range and feels clumsy compared to aiming the "camera" with the mouse.

^ Before Tommy owns Sunshine Autos, have him leave a vehicle in a Pay 'n' Spray, avoid using more than one other vehicle before he returns so it stays in the game memory, then return after whatever wildness and get in or on it again, and it will trigger the Pay 'n' Spray actions.

Larry Niven (author of Ringworld) was originally approached to write a Halo novelization, but declined due to unfamiliarity with the subject matter.[85] The first novel was Halo: The Fall of Reach, a prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved. .It was written by Eric Nylund in seven weeks, and published in October 2001.[86] William C. Dietz wrote an adaptation of Halo: Combat Evolved called Halo: The Flood, which was released in 2003.[87] Eric Nylund returned to write the third novel, Halo: First Strike, which takes place between Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2, and was published in December 2003. Nylund also wrote the fourth adaptation, Halo: Ghosts of Onyx, which was published on October 31, 2006.[88] Bungie employee Joseph Staten wrote the fifth book, Halo: Contact Harvest, which was released on October 30, 2007, while Tobias S. Buckell produced the sixth, Halo: The Cole Protocol, published in November 2008. Bungie considers the Halo novels as additions to the Halo canon.^ A new game that takes place in Vice City, "Vice City Stories," is due to be available on PSP in Oct.31, 2006.

Film

In 2005, a script for a film adaptation of Halo was written by Alex Garland[98]—which D. B. Weiss and Josh Olson rewrote during 2006[99][100]—for a 2008 release. The movie was to be developed and released by 20th Century Fox, under the creative oversight of Microsoft.[101] .Peter Jackson was slated to be the executive producer,[102] with Neill Blomkamp as director.^ Michael Mann was also the executive producer and a writer for the TV series "Miami Vice," 1984, and is the writer/director for an upcoming movie based on the show.

Before Blomkamp signed on, Guillermo del Toro was in negotiations to direct.[103]
The crew stopped and resumed preproduction of the film several times.[104] Blomkamp declared the project dead in late 2007,[105] but Jackson replied that the film would still be made.[106] .Blomkamp and Jackson collaborated on District 9, but the director told /Film that he was no longer considering working on a Halo film if the opportunity arose,[107] saying that after working on the film for five months before the project's collapse it would be difficult to return.^ Since we're doing this before the west island is officially open, no patients would appear over there now, anyway.

The rights for the film have since reverted back to Microsoft.[108]
Blomkamp commented the Master Chief worked from a video gamer's perspective, but dramatically does not hold much weight because of his faceless nature. .The character as depicted in the film would have been "the most important supporting cast member". Instead, "other characters around him [...] did most of the emotional heavy lifting", with their story exploring their perception of the Master Chief.^ As long as the other requirements were met, I bet most everyone's "Vice City" would run smoothly then.

[109] After Jackson's project stalled, Stuart Beattie wrote a film adaptation of The Fall of Reach, complete with concept art.[110] While there have been rumors that director Steven Spielberg was in talks to produce Halo,[111] Microsoft has responded that the film is still on hold.[112]

Anime

Microsoft announced at Comic-Con 2009 that it was overseeing production of a series of seven short anime films, together called Halo Legends. Financed by 343 Industries, the animation was created by five Japanese production houses: Bones, Casio Entertainment, Production I.G., Studio 4°C, and Toei Animation. Shinji Aramaki, creator and director of Appleseed and Appleseed Ex Machina, serves as the project's creative director. Warner Bros. distributed Legends on DVD and Blu-ray in early 2010.[64] Six of the stories are officially part of the Halo canon, with the seventh, made by Toei, intended to be a parody of the universe.[113]

Reception and critical response

Launch events such as this one in New York City were held the night of Halo 3's release.
The Halo franchise has been highly successful commercially and critically. .During the two months following Halo: Combat Evolved's release, it sold alongside more than fifty percent of Xbox consoles[114] and sold a million units by April 2002.[115] Halo 2's sales generated US$125 million on its premiere day, making it the fastest selling United States media product in history up to that time.^ All he's have to do is follow C.J. around with a camcorder for a half an hour, let alone what he'd have by the time you're nearly through with the game, and why would he bother threatening to make anything up?

A notable machinima production is the comedy series Red vs. Blue: The Blood Gulch Chronicles, a parody of the Halo universe, created by Rooster Teeth Productions. It has achieved an unparalleled level of success in Halo machinima in specific, and machinima in general; it is credited with bringing attention to the genre.[120][165] Red vs. Blue generated annual revenues of US$200,000, and special promotional episodes were commissioned by Bungie.[120] The series ended on June 28, 2007, after 100 regular episodes and numerous promotional videos.[166] Sequels to the series include Reconstruction, which contains more dramatic elements than its comedic predecessor,[167] Relocated, and the currently running "Red vs. Blue: Recreation". Other machinima series include Fire Team Charlie, The Codex, and the in-game interview show This Spartan Life.
