It seems like 343 is focused on bringing Halo fans an authentic experience with Halo: Combat Evolved by keeping the traditional settings when the game originally released in 2001 for Xbox.
While they are focused on keeping the gameplay the same, it is great to see the addition of new playlists with slightly different settings to bring consumers a new experience as well.
