GameSpot have just released a new review of what they saw of Bungie's forthcoming epic Halo at Gamestock yesterday.

The article talks about playing through the level which was available for visitors to Gamestock to play - here is a rather interesting excerpt.

The levels start a player off in a flying scout vehicle that's skimming over the alien sea above cresting waves. After circling the beach below a few times, the scout vehicle touches down and unloads the player's character, as well as a jeep with a mounted gattling gun. Manning this gun is a computer-controlled member of the player's military unit, and he does a great job of tracking enemies and providing cover fire, even while the player's jeep bounces across the uneven terrain
Two new movies have also been released, along with the set of new screenshots mentioned in yesterday's news. They both show lots of nice features of Halo - driving the jeep, using the assault rifle indoors, with the lovely attached light, and a never before seen feature of the Halo engine - waves.

While very short (90 seconds between them), not a lot of sound, and not of the highest quality, the movies certainly leave your eyes watering, and wanting more. They can be found at the end of the Gamespot article in various formats.

Halo is currently in development by Bungie Studios, and is expected to be released for the XBox this autumn. The Mac and PC versions will follow the XBox release by at least several months.
