Halo: 5 game genres perfect for the Halo series

Halo, arguably the biggest first-person shooter series around, has already proven that it can also deliver a compelling experience in the real-time strategy genre

Halo, arguably the biggest first-person shooter series around, has already proven that it can also deliver a compelling experience in the real-time strategy genre (Halo Wars). But what's next for the Halo franchise? GamePro explores five game genres we want Halo games in.

There's no denying that the Halo games defined the current first-person shooter experience on home consoles. From its controls to its exceptional online multiplayer formula, the first Halo game set the bar and reached mass-market appeal, and Bungie has since continued to improve upon the series again and again with Halo 2 and Halo 3.

This year, Microsoft has branched the Halo brand out into a new genre--real-time strategy--with Halo Wars, exclusively for the Xbox 360. Early reviews of Halo Wars are positive enough to prove that the Halo brand has staying power and potential to become a household name like Super Mario Bros. So what's next for Halo and Master Chief? GamePro explores the possibilities of what other genres Microsoft should expand Halo into.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
