  • "This Rocks" (by Halo master, 10 Jun 2003) [10/10]
    Halo is awesome

  • "One of best soundtrack, I've ever heard" (by Pyramid Head, 15 Aug 2004) [9/10]
    I've never played HALO, but if game is good as a soundtrack, the game must be great! You will hear lots of Gregorian-like choirs, battle rhymes, rock marches and awesome ambient pieces.

  • "Damn Good" (by Sid, 22 Dec 2004) [10/10]
    Hell I listen to this thing in my car, home, girlfriends house, even my bathroom, i cant get too much of this.

  • "A lullaby" (by Rogue, 25 Sep 2005) [5/10]
    This soundtrack kept putting me to sleep. There's very little variation; each song basically uses the same instrument setup. No room for creativity.

    It's the same thing over and over again...just like the gameplay.

  • "Hummm." (by poodleinacan, 6 May 2009) [9/10]
    The thing is.... We dont wana buy the soundtracks....
    But the game HALO (1) is some how better then HALO 2 in certain things.

Facts / description

Soundtrack to the XBox game.
Winner of Rolling Stones' award for "Best Original Soundtrack" in a game.
The music on this CD was originally meant to be experienced while playing Halo. It was composed and produced to use the game's dynamic audio playback engine. Themes, moods and even the duration of theses pieces will change and adapt with each player's Halo experience. I took the liberty of remixing and rearranging all the music in order to make listening to the soundtrack more enjoyable. Perhaps a piece of music that you remember hearing wont't be found here. That might be because you played Halo in a way I never anticipated.
