The title of the review is a joke about this game carrying the original Xbox like LeBron carrying the Cleveland Cavaliers, if you were wondering. It's not related to any feelings I have for either LeBron or Halo one way or the other.
If I had to compare this game to any other video game, I'd compare it to Final Fantasy VII. What both of those games did best was convince a bunch of people that hadn't played a lot of video games that this was the best game ever made.
The difference is that this game is much more polished than Final Fantasy VII and just more fun. It doesn't have nearly as many annoying flaws as Final Fantasy VII did. While that game was a mediocre RPG, this was at least a good FPS.
It wasn't really anything new, but everything it did, it did well. Great action,...
