View Full Version : Halo 2

Anyone playing this yet? I had to work, so my girlfriend got my reserved copy at GameStop for me at 12:01 (more like 1:01, they're so retarted over there.)

This is so much better than the first. Finally you're outside in wide open spaces. Duel weilding, scopes on the Battle Rifle, and Covenant voices and sniper rifles. Awesome.

if they had a pc version...

*curses the xbox* :fist:

edit: just found this on the faq sheet for halo 2 @bungie.net:
Q What systems is Halo 2 available for?

A Halo 2 is being made for the Xbox only at this time.
so, there is hope...

It's times like these when I wish I had an XBox.

I usually buy the console version until the PC version comes out. Then I sell the console version and buy the PC version.

Halo is nothing special. I have no clue why people go apesh** ballistic over halo. Yeah it has great graphics but it didnt have anything that was revolutionary in gameplay. I have played dozens of FPS i enjoyed much more than halo. i found nothing special about and it never held my attention longer than 15 minutes. However Battfield series was great. I played the for like 10 hours the day i bought it. And SW Battelfront i pkayed through in one weekend it was so addictive. Sure it was short but it was also friggin addictive.

thats all a matter of opinion though darkside_tryanno. People can like what they want

I loved Halo and I can't wait till I can get to bismark and get my copy of halo 2

holy freaking piece of monkey crap. i finally got to play halo 2 in the mall while i was christmas shopping for my family. that game is by far one of the best games i've played in a long time. the graphics were incredible, the physics engine was pretty close to being real, and it really made you feel like you are apart of massively scaled battles.

granted, i didn't get to play the whole thing, but dude, it freakin rocked the house down. :rock:

its going to be extremely difficult for other games to challenge it for supremecy on the xbox. tsl might come close if it delivers, but so far, halo 2 is looking absolutely spectacular. if you have an xbox, its a must buy. :thumbsup:

thats not to say that i don't want it to come out for the pc, so i'm still
*cursin the xbox* :fist:

@darkside_tanro: before you pass judgement on any game, you might want to either:

a: play the game first or

b: read this (http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/action/halo2/review.html) review and tell me if its all hype

halo 2 is good. I love the sword.I discovered an infinite ammo glitch for the plasma sword. I beat the SP game in one day.Nice graphics. I personally rate it a 9.4

i didnt give it a 10 because like Darkside_tanro said "Yeah it has great graphics but it didnt have anything that was revolutionary in gameplay." however i love the storyline

11-22-2004, 06:07 PM
I guess I would give it a 10 thats right a 10 I loved it so much

I bought Halo 2, and beat it in 6 hours... sure it was fun but it really lacked depth i thought...

The story was poor, the gameplay got a bit repetitive. So now i have it as one of those " I'm bored I think I'll just play this game and mindlessly shoot everything" games

Eh - Just my opinion :)

Why do you need Halo 2 when you've got Half Life 2?? Anyway, Halo will most probably be released for PC too.

It's all right but the story will leave you mad at first or until they bring a new Halo out.
