The most anticipated game of the week has finally come!!

The campaign now has achievements, and supports online co-op play. And multiplayer will feature six maps inspired by the first two "Halo" games. You can also use Kinect to scan items in game for later review in your library, and you can even throw grenades if you feel like getting off the couch.
