Multiplayer matches are a blast! The game is widely played around the world, so you will never have a problem finding the game type you want.
You don't need to level to be part of the fun, all you need is a gun and you're ready to roll! You can fly around with your banshee or recruit friends with your warhog, just don't let a sneaky player shoot your head off with a sniper.
The most impressive aspects of Halo are its friendly and enemy artificial intelligence, its physics for vehicles and explosions, and its weapon design. These elements are what contribute to the outstanding quality of the action, and though they are technically the elements of a 2-year-old game, they remain unsurpassed by just about any other shooter. Halo isn't a squad-based shooter, but in those instances when you're fighting alongside fellow marines, these troopers will naturally look to you for guidance and provide you with covering fire.
The Covenant's vehicles aren't as durable but are still very useful. The Ghost is a hoverbike armed with twin plasma guns, and the Banshee is an assault aircraft that can devastate ground forces. Each of these handles uniquely from all the others, looks great, and has its own unique advantages. They're put to use in memorable moments in Halo's campaign, and are a lot of fun in multiplayer, but what makes them particularly impressive is how seamlessly they're integrated with the action. Your perspective smoothly transitions to a third-person view when you get into the driver's seat of one of these.
