No bolding for work titles. See format rules on How To Create A Works Page, 4th paragraph "No bolding is used for work titles" and FAQ: "What emphasis do I use for the title?: Whatever you do, it does not belong in boldface-font."
'''''Halo: Combat Evolved''''' (released on November 15, 2001) introduced the ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'' series from relatively HumbleBeginnings. Humanity has been losing a war against [[ScaryDogmaticAliens the Covenant]] for the last 27 years, and the game starts following a devastating defeat at a major Earth colony, Reach, and the crew of the warship the ''Pillar of Autumn''. The game opens InMediasRes as the warship comes under attack, and is forced to make a crash landing on a mysterious ring-shaped Covenant-worshiped megastructure known as Halo.

* ApocalypticLog: The Flood gets introduced through a video recording from the helmet cam of a (deceased) Marine named Jenkins. If you read the novelisation, though, you find out that the marine whose video the Chief watched wasn't dead at all he'd been turned into a combat form, but had somehow retained his consciousness, turning it into an AndIMustScream scenario.

* MissingMissionControl: At the end of "Assault on the Control Room", Master Chief leaves Cortana behind to go and rescue Keyes, only returning two levels later. This is done so that the Chief's one constant companion is missing for your first encounter with the Flood.

* UniqueEnemy: ** In "343 Guilty Spark", there is the Paranoid Marine, a Marine driven crazy by the (so far un-encountered) Flood and will slowly shoot at the player when approached. ** There is only one group of Flood Combat Forms that use active camouflage in the game, encountered if you stay too long inside the armoury in "The Maw".

* ArtisticLicenseNuclearPhysics: Nuclear reactors are not bombs.

Added DiffLines:
* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: In the final mission, Cortana states that the Pillar of Autumn's self destruction will produce an explosion with a temperature of almost 100 million degrees (presumably Fahrenheit); this would be nearly 4 times as hot as the core of the sun.
