2.0 out of 5 stars more than a little disappointing. Nov. 17 2004
Format:Video Game
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 ›

4.0 out of 5 stars The Top ten best new things of Halo 2 July 18 2004
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
10.that the graphics are being upgraded and making everything look uber-real. They are also making all the covenent aliens renewed and making them look freekyer than ever.
9.AI upgrade! now that not only the covenent are smarter, so are your marines (finnaly someone to help) so they can drive, pick up weapons, and even help snipe!
8.new charecters will exceed expectations since there wont be just scattered packs of grunts everywhere-also newer harder covenent-just to super charge it
7.sprinting will make this game a ton better since it seems like you can only jog when running-great to get out of the new swarms of covenent
6.COMBO MAINIA!the combos of meele attacks are going to be awsome-no more missing and getting slashed back!
4.breakidge. most everything will be possible to wreck now-including scorpions(sorry about the spelling)and dropships, and warthogs, and covenent brains (hehe)
3.being able to jump on vehicles, kick the covnents butt out,
and steal them. THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST GAME EVER!!!with this there will be no more accidental exploding those needed banshees, ghosts, whatever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Campaign July 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Hey, Colin Again. If the 3rd novel for the halo series has anything to do with Halo 2, then it is going to be awsome. First, master chief and a small crew of marine survivors from halo hijack a Covenant Flagship, Cortana advances the plasma turrets and SlipStream Jumps, and eventually run into a covenant armada; at least 5 hundred ships.
But, before that, MC and his crew return to the destroyed reach in hopes of findin other Spatans, and they do, along with a woman named Dr. Halsley, the creator of the Spartan II project who has found a Forrunner Artifact that bends space, and the covenent are after it, too.
They also dock with a human ship, the Gettysburgh(note-this may be the ship MC is on in the Halo 2 announcment on the new halo disc).
Shortly after, they board a covenant station named the Unyieleding Hyrophent. MC and the rest of the spartans rig the station to blow, but before that, a captain lures the covenant ships to the failing station with a fake artifact and BOOM, the armada is destroyed, but the covenent still finds earth

5.0 out of 5 stars think you know halo 2? July 13 2004
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
if you think you know halo 2 as well as I do, then here you go.
covonant carbine- covonant version of a sniper rifle
battle rifle- like the assualy, but has alot more UMPH! in it, and it has a scope. unzoomed fires 3 shot bursts, zoomed fires single shots.
.45 pistol- stronger forum of a pistol.
SMG(Sub Machine Gun)- kind of replaces pistol, innacurate but strong.
covenant rifle- covenant version of battle rifle
AND, you'll love this:
the light sword- by pressing B, you use a close range attack, and if you want, line up your enemy for a powerful lunge attack.(1 hit kill)
new snow warthog- has weels like a scorpion.
normal warthog-allows you to shoot from the weel, mostly used for people, not marines.
tri-rocket warthog- a wartog with a 3 round rocket launcher on back.
jungle warthog- not really sure, but i think with jungle camoflague.
new covenant dropship-shadow.
you can hijack a ghost.
there might be a human air vehicle
the warthogs, ghosts, and banshees all can easily double their speed by boosting.
brutes- hairy ape-like people. they have a hunters(...) hugeness, and the elits speed.
prophets- telekenites powers to take you down!
marines give up their ammo when they are on the verge of dying.
i hope you liked my review, halo 2 is gonna rock all our minds!!

Don't activate the game during installation as it prompts you to. At least that's what I'm assuming my issue is from what I can find on various forums. Read more

Loved the original Halo on XBox so had to purchase Halo 2 for my PC which is a much more capable platform to play this game on.
