MOST ADDICTING GAME EVER!!!
Excellent video-game for all the Halo Addicts. Kinda creepy with all the zombies in it, coming after you, but it's so addicting! I can play this game 24/7 and never get tired of it. The best thing is that you can play multiplayer and either go against each other, or do the campaign with each other. I totally recommend this. You should buy it. It's a way AWESOME game, and forever will be :)
The Best Campaign Ever, Hands Down!
Halo 3. ODST, Reach, and Wars had all good campaigns but Halo 2 just topped them all, if you go back to that campaign you will be astonished at all the twists and turns and epicness that happens in it, from becoming the arbiter, to defending a UNSC space station thats right above earth being attacked by a covenant armada. This is a campaign that you will love!
halo is the best game i ever played.it has good graphics and i would tell this to a friend.
insane game for its time
this game was amazing when it came out it was THE GAME to play making the first matchmaking halo that works
THE Xbox game!
Halo, next to Splinter Cell, is one of my favorite Video game series. there is something about halo that is so inviting and so fun that makes me play it over and over again. The Bad: the AI is retarted, they run out into the middle of a fire fight and get shot. but sometimes they kill you too easily and it seem unfair to fight the brutes that can take bullets like 2-Pac before they die. The good: the graphics are amazing, they really push the Xbox to its limits, delivering great textures and animations. the voice works are good, though not the best in the halo series, and the fact that the added a ton of new weapons such as the battle rifle, the smg and the laser sword. you can now dual wield your weapons, giving you that empowered feel that you should have when you have two SMG's in your hands. i think this is one of the best in the franchise and probably one of the best XBOX games of the entire systems existence. buy it before its gone people!
Just Trust Me On This One...
I give this game a 7 only because of this... the graphics were GREAT and the graphics were better than Halo Combat Evolved, but Halo 2 had a terrible story line and explained nothing. Halo combat Evolved actually told the story of how The Pillar of Autumn actually fell and what happened to Reach and everything. Halo 2 is just a run on game that already tells us well.... NOTHING! The objectives are terrible, to my friends and I it just feels like KILL ALIENS, KILL ALIENS, KILL MORE AND MORE AND MORE! But the Halo Combat Evolved and the others actually have objectives and gameplay. Also, Halo 2 had terrible missions and alien missions. If you think I am talking about Combat Evolved more than just ignore me, but this is just what I think of Halo 2. But one thing that I really love is the music! WOW, just amazing music! I did get bored of this game very fast, and I kept playing Combat Evolved (Never gets old). This is just my opinion and you don't have to agree or think that I am being to harsh, thank you.
Best game ever! Bringing it back is going to be the best thing ever. Cant wait to get my hands on it.
Hands Down Awesome Game
I think in order to appreciate this game for what it really is, you had to buy it and play it at the time It came out which is what I did. Even though it took a while to come out with another halo, I was far from disappointed. It was defiantly more about the story than the first one but the actual game play had also only gotten better. Newer weapons was refreshing without losing the Halo feel. Campaign was mind blowing, great story. I absolutely loved it. Its the perfect story for the next part of halo after Combat Evolved, which is what halo fanatics like me would like. And for die hard halo fans, it provides a lot of answers and builds many bridges to understanding what Halo really is. Over all, at the time of purchasing and playing when it came out, it defiantly deserves a 10/10 and still does because it has great story and game play. Its one of those games I will always go back to play along with the others. Its a must have for any halo fan.
The Game for the Original Xbox
Halo Combat Evolved was the reason to buy an Xbox, and Halo 2 was the reason to get Xbox live. Even now with the servers shut down, Halo 2 is still a ton of fun to play. With perfect controls and graphics that still hold up today, Halo 2 is the defining game of the previous console generation.
The game play of Halo 2 is easily the reason why the Halo series is the shooter of choice still today, the perfectly balanced multiplayer and a campaign that is still fun to play through with friends are only a few of the reasons to buy this game. There is still so much more.
Halo 2's signature contribution is its successful implementation of the Xbox's new online services with the game's multiplayer modes. The combination of the two was a phenomenal success, with Halo 2's online topping the Xbox live charts for years (until Gears of War came along in 2006). Nevertheless, Halo 2 was the king of online shooters and made Halo even more of a household name.
Developer Bungie Studios did the impossible, improve on an already classic game. They took a game that was perfect in its own way, and made it better.
this game is OK
I'd just say that this is an okay game. Its good single player like first two or three times through but gets pretty old after that and its always fun when u play it multiplayer. This game has a good storyline and good graphics to say the least. This is a good shooter game just to have but mainly its fun in cooperative mode because u can have a team effort and beat it easily in legendary mode this way. Its about a medium length game out of the games i've myself played. Personally i'd say its a worthwhile game to get if you have lots of people to play it with you, but if your never gonna have anyone to play it with i'd say it depends on the kind of person. Its a relatively cheap game as far as xbox goes for that matter so if you don't like it its not all that much money wasted. Best things on it is the destruction u can cause to the enemy and the futuristic weapons that you have the chance to use. Thats all i got see ya.
