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.


Awesome, cortana leaves u

10/10 game, 5/10 port. Despite lacklustre community support there is still some exceptional user made content for this game.

Halo 2

2 protagonists (you can play the Arbiter who is actually more interesting than Master Chief and seems to do more in the campaign than Chief)

Dual-wielding guns. Something that should be an option in every first-person shooter.

FOV is 2 small (can be fixed by editing a few HEX files)
Gun models are 2 big. Especially when dual-wielding, i can barely see a thing other than two giant guns in my face.

2 many instant deaths. Gets very frustrating.

Twice the weapon and vehicle options than Halo CE.
Twice the enemy variety.

Would have been twice as better with mods.

Not a bad game, but i wouldnt call it great.

Excellent game, great campaign and gameplay.


Best halo game great on pc sadly online severs gone but was fun while it lasted story is cool to


Amazing game, even better on the Xbox.

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!

One of my favourite games of all time
