Yeah I did play Halo when it came out. I think I am misremembering though, on the first game with bumpmapping. I guess I never noticed the bumpmapping in all those GC games, even though I played all of them. Maybe it was because Ninja Gaiden took the bumpmapping to a whole other level?

As a late Xbox game though it wouldn't surprise me if it used bump maps in a more pronounced way than the older games I mentioned.
Here's some examples of its use in the GC games mentioned:
