    HEXUS.review - Pariah - X-Box

    All in all, I’d say that it’s a toss up between Halo2 and this and it’s too close to call. I think that in general terms, Halo 2 just sneaks it in the single player stakes. Don’t get me wrong, Pariah is an extremely polished and playable game, it just has a few niggles that let it down… On the multiplayer side though, I have to go for Pariah, even if it is lacking a CTF mode. The game itself, the official maps and the sheer fun of DM or Siege are just too good to ignore… and then there’s the unlimited scope of the M.A.P. editor too, giving Pariah longevity way after you’ve finished the single player mode.

    Hmm. Interesting.

    I thought the PC version was absolutely terrible. It could have been released two years ago.

    All I can say is they must have really worked on the Xbox port.

    In truth, the PC version feels like its a port over from the X-Box, and it suffers the same as Halo did... PC FPS games are expected to offer more than you'd get on a console... Pariah on X-Box is a decent game, but the PC version has much stiffer competition and suffers becuase of this.

    I found Halo to be quite good. Much better than Pariah.

    But then I have been playing Doom 3 and HL2, so mebbes I'm spoiled.

    I dunno, I found Pariah to be far less repetitive than Halo, with varied enviroments... which is why I've reviewed it as an X-Box game and not compared it with the PC version or the PC versions competition... however, there is a review of the PC version on the way....

    Halo should have been an ace game on the PC. It had a half decent plot, DX9 graphics and pretty good physics. Sadly it was let down by every room looking the same and it being a dodgy port.
