By NeuroSplicer HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Sept. 6 2007
Format: Video Game
The Original Halo was a ground-breaking title. The expectation for HALO2 was so great that Microsoft decided to greedily milk its own users...
PC users have been waiting for HALO2 to be released for Windows for over 3 years. Now is too little, too late. Not to mention the shameless WinVista promotion.

All these years Microsoft was dragging its feet. Why? The release of (compatibility-hell) WinVISTA was coming - and HALO2 was planed to boost sales. Then WinVISTA got repeatedly delayed - and so was Halo 2.
RESULT: In 2004 the graphics were cutting edge, in 2007 they are just presentable. Even though the game requires an above average (and quite expensive) Hardware configuration, it actually looks worse than UNREAL TOURNAMENT 2004.

QUESTION: why is HALO2 only compatible with WinVISTA since it does NOT take advantage of DirectX10?
ANSWERS : (1) let's help sell those WinVISTA finally!; (2) there are hardly any affordable DirectX10-compatible video-cards available; (3) let's charge the users for playing OnLine with WindowsLIVE!!

The gameplay and overall presentation is not that different from the original Halo. Sure, surfaces got better textured, shiny reflections got added and now (limiting and clumsy) dual-yield is available - but do these actually make a difference to a real gamer?

It is truly a shame that PC users get exploited in such shameless way. After all, HALO3 is getting released for X-BOX.
Wow! We get the privilege of playing the previous generation game! Aren't we lucky...

You're probably wondering why the bloody [...] i rated this game overall 4 and are going to give it a negative response, well hear me out!

Halo 2 is a nice attempt to tide fans over for Halo 3, but come on, guys, the worst part of this game is the cliffhanger at the very end of the game, and not to mention that the flood are back (why can't the pussies just be at a tea party?)! The flood are really easy to kill though, and now you have more options for killing them, but in 1-2 player campaign, it's sometimes very EASY to get lost, unless you have a 100% idea on where you are going!

Unlike in Halo 1, the pistol doesn't have a zoom on it. making it the most useless weapon in the game (well, I guess the plasma pistol could be more). You can dual wield guns, but you can throw grenades, so there's a major pro and con. It's better just to use weapons like Energy Swords, and Shotguns, so you can still throw grenades with powerful weapons.

Another complaint is that there is a not a lot of ammo for the GOOD human weapons in this game, making you rely on covenant weapons a little bit more, but the human weapons now have special upgrades (all except for the pistol, which has been downgraded), making them worth more, actually.

Multiplayer is quite fun, but all of the maps are completley different, except for Cogulation, but that's just a remake of Blood Gulch with a few differences.

Even though this is quite a fun game, you may want to rent it first, but obviously you will probably like it at LEAST a little bit.

The biggest complaint I have for it is why do we need to have emblems on our character in multiplayer matches?

5 stars for fun
4.5 stars overall

After officially playing this game, I can say that it was a little more disappointing than anyhting. I haven't actually played the Live multiplayer, since my friend doesn't have a Live connection, but the single player was only 'alright'. I played the original on co-op with my friend when X-Box first hit the streets and at the time I thought the game was pretty cool. I didn't think it was groundbreaking or revolutionary or anything, but it was kinda fun nonetheless. This time around, it' pretty much more of the same thing. Enter hallway A and fight bad-guys. Proceed to room B and do the same. It gets REALLY repetetive REALLY fast. Do I really need a room with eight doors when you can only really go through one of them? Do I need the smae bland textures over and over for three hours straight. I guess there's not a lot more to expect from a FPS, but other games have done it way better in the past, even if not as flashy. I must admit that the graphics are superb and the enemies are kind of neat, but even the new weapons were uninspiring. Basically you get the 'bad-guys' version of sniper rifles and a few others to round out the selection, but they're nothing to drop your jaw at. I think my biggest qualm with the game is that, despite all of their focus and attention supposedly going into the single player campaign, Bungie seemed to skip everything which has made past games good. Shorter, more varied levels would have been welcomed, but instead I'm forced to tread through room after room of extremely similar surroundings and extremely similar enemies and firefights. The A.I. was always a cut above your run-of-the-mill fps', but it is still flaky at times. Enemies, while having more options and more strategies, still run into the same patterns and reactions most of the time.Read more ›

first of all i think a lot of the things i am about to list are just rumors so don't get your hopes to high i will start with the wepons first of all and i think the best is fuel rod gun(the gun from hunters)that fires a burst of green energy and explodes sort the covnant equvlant of a rocket launcher there is also a rumor of a sort of covnant sniper rifel and the smg (which you see the master cheif holding his real name is john)and the battle rifel (a more a assult rifel with less rounds but more pow and a 10x scope) the covnant carbine the covnant equvlant of a battle rifel and i think is the best improvement in the game duel welding (the ablty to hold and shoot 2 guns at once)and the most antispated wepon of halo 2 the energy sword the type the elites use there will be two ways to use it a quick swipe or a inauracte one that is almost sure to kill vehicles there will be several veriants of the worthog (a jeep) banishes and gosts and worthogs will have power boost to make them go much faster and there are so many ways to destroy or capthure for example to take out a tank you could blow it up with a few shots to the fuel tank but than you could not use it yourself that brings me to one of my favrote parts you can hijack any vehicle even moveing ones there are so many things to like about this game that is who i reurved mine over a year ago
