They're Random, Baby!

Halo Cutscene Library

WAAAY behind schedule, this Cutscene Library for Halo: Combat Evolved began to appear online in late May, 2005 - three and a half years after the game was released. All we can really say is... better late than never!

Starting in July, 2008, we've added HD versions of these cutscenes, courtesy of HaLo2FrEeEk, of Infectionist Machinima. If the URL says "im mirror list", you'll be directed to a load-balancing script on their server (it contains mirrors from several places, including us) for downloads. If for any reason that script isn't available, our local mirror links should be visible. If there's NOTHING in the HD boxes, it means we haven't released that cutscene yet.
