Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad

I’ve said it before. I don’t typically play video games until they are couple of years old. I’m not a serious enough gamer to pop down money on a game I may or may not like. I used to rent most games before I would buy them. So late last year I picked up a […]

Spartan Warrior

The level of detail on the Spartan Warrior is quite nice, with deeply recessed panels and heavily textured surfaces. The helmet has a narrower visor and extra armor that lends the appearance of a snout, but the design is still easily identifiable as a UNSC Spartan.

Brute Splicer

The Brute Splicer is supposed to be some sort of brawler, and the character design certainly conveys that impression. The Brute has most of his mass distributed onto the upper torso, with impossibly massive arms and a decidedly rotund paunch. The legs are also quite thick, but next to the upper limbs they tend to look ridiculously thin.
