Pure Xbox Game Club June 2023: Halo Combat Evolved

Want to enhance your Xbox Game Pass experience? Come join the official Pure Xbox Game Club!

We can't take any credit on staff for this — the PX Game Club is the work of ralphdibny and the rest of the contributors over at the Pure Xbox forums, who have established a community that meets up every month to play a game on Xbox Game Pass and share their experiences. Games are voted on every month by the contributors involved.

The game for June 2023 is Halo: Combat Evolved, which you can either play in its original form, or as part of Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox Game Pass. This is the very first Halo title and a true Xbox classic!

You'll find the forum thread to get involved below (it has over 2,620 entries to date!):

If you're interested in what kind of discussion goes on, here's what a couple of contributors had to say about last month's Pure Xbox Game Club title, Redfall:

"My final thoughts on Redfall: Good game that released at a terrible time - especially with the disappointing reception and unfinished feel of it all. Microsoft needed a home run, and sadly Redfall wasn’t it (despite my own personal enjoyment of the game).

Perhaps Tears of the Kingdom is enough of a distraction to the gaming world that Arkane can be given some breathing room to quietly patch things up. As people end their Hyrule journey, they can come back to a stronger title."

"I'm really enjoying Redfall! I chose Jacob and have found cloak to be super clutch, helping me get the drop on enemies and make a quick escape if I bite off more than I can chew. I just got my first revolver, so looking forward to sneaking around putting bullets in vampire's skulls with it. I still think it's dumb how co-op only progresses the story for the host, but I'd love to try co-op with someone!

Redfall really doesn't deserve the hate it gets. I'd say it's a sold 7 or 7.5 and can easily see that climbing to an 8."
