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.

Very rough around the edges, the limited development time really shows, and I'm not talking just about the cliffhanger ending. Gameplay is much more unbalanced and there's much more glitches compared to Halo CE, health bar is copmletely removed, leaving you with only regenerating shields, which make you much weaker to damage, physics are buggy and the player can die from one melee hit on the back on any difficulty, which is especially annoying when you play as the Arbiter, as ally Elites like to accidentally kill you and one another this way. It's such a shame considering that the story is simply great, the best in the series even, dare I say it.


i should have left it at 117 reviews but i had to upvote


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.
