Halo: Combat Evolved and its sequel, Halo 2, have achieved phenomenal success on the Xbox video game platform as gamers around the world follow the saga of Master Chief in his battle against the Covenant forces. In 2003, the original Halo roared onto Windows PCs. In Halo 2 for Windows Vista, the action picks up where the first game ended. Master Chief, with the help of a small group of marines, has destroyed the religious artifact and artificial world known as Halo, and is making his way back to Earth. There, he and the last surviving Earth forces will mount a titanic struggle against the marauding Covenant enemy. To date, the Halo franchise has sold more than 14.5 million games worldwide with over 600 million hours of multiplayer action logged across Microsoft's Xbox Live online gaming service.

No proper mod tools. Vista only. No co-op. For a PC game this is utter trash.

Meh, I remember playing this game years ago on my dad's computer when I was a child. Nothing special, I didn't like it very much. I didn't the futuristic wars setting, and the levels weren't that good. The starting levels were decent, and a little scary in some parts (when you fight the blue invisible aliens in cramped corridors), the levels on Earth were the best, I frequently replayed them just for the guns and for the fights on Earth, and then I went on an alien world as an Alien (wtf?) and that part was hard and boring as hell. Nah.

Not as a good as its predecessor, but still fun and brings back great memories.

I loved this game, played it on XBOX until it got offline, I play it on PC now. I still enjoy it, but Halo Combat Evolved was better since it had better mod tools. I hate people who say it's for Vista only, it works fine on Windows 7 too!

This game was really good, the Arbiter is what Halo more fun. (He is my fav char) But it sucks in some areas, multiplayer is buggy and cut off on xbox, buggy all together, long load times on xbox, on vista only.
If there was none of the sucky parts i just said, it would have an 8

Halo was one of the best games I've ever played, one of those games that immediately hits you, the campaign's story was gripping, compelling, and heart pounding, and the key events such as the covenant Schism and the flood outbreak were portrayed in a way that no one could match.

If you're going for a breathtaking campaign, this game; and its trilogy is for you.
