Halo Games - Can Someone Break Them Down For Me?

Looking to pick up a Halo game, but I know little about them. Can someone breakdown the different Halo games for me? Basically, do I need to play them in sequence to get the full effect? If not, which is the one I should get. Also, if you could describe the game or compare it to something like the Half Life series. Thanks.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Play them all, may as well play them in order too. They just keep getting better and better. I dig the Modern Warfare series and the like but Halo is still my favorite by far.

Technical timeline order:
Halo Reach
Halo
Halo 2
Halo 3: ODST
Halo 3

That's the order but you'll go back to Reach for Multiplayer.

Should I play them in that order or the order they were released?

If you haven't played any of them, play them in timeline order just for the experience.

Ok so I went looking for the Halo games yesterday. I was told Halo 1 and 2 were for the original Xbox and are not available on Xbox 360. Is this the case?

Guess not...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._with_Xbox_360

However, it says that Halo and Halo 2 should be fine on a US NTSC 360 so you should be ok.


Edit: According to the wiki, you'll need to download an emulator file through xbox live to play them.

when u get to the guilty spark level in halo ce make sure u play it in the dark, ce was a great campaign back in the day. wonder how it holds up when someone plays it now for the first time coming from all the new games that are out.

If your xbox is newer than the emulator should already be on the system. If not it is not that hard to do. Also Halo 1 & 2 work perfectly fine on the 360. Kids were playing them up till the release of Black Ops.

Most popular games are backward compatable.

You can't play Halo and Halo 2 online though, right? Microsoft shutdown the servers for original Xbox games back in April.
