The Halo series has always been a great source of '30 seconds of fun' shenanigans and still features incredible AI. To this day it's my go-to for online multiplayer. But boy-oh-boy did its story get a bit weird.
And these deleted cut-scenes, discovered and uploaded by Gamecheat13, are much like the deleted scenes you might see in any Blu-ray or DVD Extras disc: they're of a lower standard then the rest of the product and were clearly removed for a reason. Most likely they were extraneous, didn't push the story in the right direction or just didn't make sense. Much like the entire story of Halo 2 and Halo 3, but let's not go there!
Still, this is worth watching, even if it's just to check out what Halo's placeholder voiceovers. Man, Master Chief sounds so weird when not being played by Steve Downes.
For me, as a big fan of the series, this was super fun to watch.
