Halos were great FPS's................for consoles. To me they are merely average to below average on a PC where there is a metric ton more competition. But some people love those games.
Halo is the first game on a console that got the controls reasonably right, prior to the first Halo game all the ones on PS2 and PS1 had mouse-controls ported to twin sticks and the games never took into account any kind of auto-aim or "making sure the characters in the game moved in a way that wasn't so quick that twin-stick users could adapt", they were awkward and frustrating and reviews at the time mentioned that...Halo they figured out how to make the characters on screen move slower but still have evasive moves (dives and such) so they weren't just cannon fodder, they gave them shields and such so you didn't have to do as much thumbwork. I recall that point vividly, going "Damn this shooter looks really good and actually works on a console", probably why Halo was a game I played all the way through.
But with like 4 guns worth using and a bunch of 'alien guns' that I absolutely hated, it missed the mark for me in the end.
