Is this as close to Halo as you can get on PC?
I'm a huge Halo fan, but I left the series (and console) after giving Halo 4 a shot (it was crap, this is coming from a massive Halo fan) and built myself a PC.

I don't want to pay 12€ for something that I would probably not like. I already did that a few times before and I'm not letting it happen again.

I could only watch two videos of it, and from what I saw was somewhat Halo related (shields, no ADS unless you have a scope, cool looking armor, etc.)

Im a huge Halo fan too and its almost the exact thing that made me switch to PC than console (with some extra things) ah well back to your question.

I bought this game on xbox live just like three days after i tested the demo. Now, have you tested firefall because this is like a wired mix between halo and firefall, kind of. It has a fun campaign and good multiplayer.
The only bad thing about multiplayer is that there are almost no one that plays it so you have to find a group of people or a clan.
The gameplay feels nice and its just over all fun but it might not make up to something like Halo reach.
So i would recommend to check some gameplay on youtube or something before you buy.

Hope this helps (probably not because i'm really bad at this but still). And i based the gameplay feeling of when i played on xbox so i haven't tested it out with keyboard and mouse, with other words if you have a xbox 360 wire controller i would recommend to use that instead.

Well the campain is okay but the multiplayer is probably why you would purchase it. So

You can play bots with friends (Choose a harder difficulty its intense) works perfectly for me

Commando's of Section8 is a steam group that has multiplayer matches pretty frequently.

The dedicated servers for PC are down because Timegate (the makers of the game) went bankrupt.

The single player campaign is also really fun imo. There are definitly some parts that are challenging enough to make you want a partner (which I think you can get, not sure id Campaign is multiplayer) but also parts that make you feel like an unstoppable force of destruction.

My only problem with the game is that the weapons effects make them seem more like toys than implements of death but its easy to get past once you experience the game's multiplayer or even offline matches with bots.

tbh no not really, I love halo(the only reason why I'm going to be buying an xboner tbh) that's why I picked this game up, tbh I think the game would have been better off playing more like halo.

give star wars republic commando a try. the online plays like halo without being halo.

also look up halo CE at halomaps.org.

let me know if you find anything else that is like halo on PC, I've been/still looking for a game like halo.

This might be a stretch, but I'll go out on a limb and say that HALO (1 and 2 both) is as close to Halo as you can get on PC.

Your right i just want to add that halo 1 does exist for PC but of course its a bit out dated and yeah. Just a fun fact for halo players (who didnt know).

So does Halo 2, and with GFWL still up, community servers should still be up too.
