No, it plays in a far smoother fashion on the Xbox. The PC version suffers from dreadful slowdown at times, even after tinkering with the settings. From what I gather, Bungie decided to make use of some of the DirectX 9 features that the original code was never intended for. Halo was optimised for Xbox and it shows.
That is the one problem with Halo for the PC, it is a bad port. I just can't play halo with a joystick though....thats why I like the multiplayer version much better.

Has to be said that I found the joystick cumbersome at first but once I'd got my head around it (left stick - WASD, right stick - mouse) I found it a breeze. My nephew has my Xbox copy now and I have the PC version - it feels very strange.
