Halo 2 definitely hold the record for worst ever ending IMO. I got all psyched for a great level on the covenant spacecraft and suddenly...credits. The last level wasn't even an MC level!

how did halo 1 end because when i played it that little AI girl just told me good job and it was over... no credits.... i just tried to go everywhere possible to see if i was actually done. maybe i never really finished the game but i got to that point twice with the same thing happening each time. idk

From what I recall Halo 1's last mission was where you had to drive yourself out of spacecraft that was about to blow up. And when you finally drove yourself out it blew up and there ya go. I can't recall the cut scene after that though...can anyone remember? The one that comes to mind I think I'm getting confused with Halo 2...all I remember is MC saying smthg to the captain(?) "I'm going to finish this"

Halo 2 starts as MC arrives back at Earth to find it under attack from the Covennant. The final cutscene (after the credits) shows that thing from the library alive after the blast

Halo 2 was alright, the ending sucked but the multiplayer was awesome and the graphics were great for the original xbox, even though they were a bit sketchy in places. The campaign was good fun although I'm not sure why they wanted to introduce playing as the arbiter. Those levels aren't as fun, for obvious reasons.

Halo 2.....bad??? Its a cliffhanger...its not supposed to end and its supposed to hype you up for another. I for one don't really give that you didn't get to play MC in the last level. The story was great and the gameplay was a lot of fun and the Arbiter is just about as kickarse as MC is (in my eyes at least)

I thought the ending was good. Was dissapointed for a breif moment when I saw the credits role...but it was in no way a BAD ending. But to each his own eh?

Just think about what happened...the brutes are the new elites. The elites left the Covenent. The Arbiter and prolly the elites are now going to be fighting the Covenant along with the Humans. We just found out there are a LOT more halos and there is a central location where you can activate them all (this instalation likley being located on Earth)....now even though it ended abruptly, the story still leaves a lot for gamers to figure out. I like stories like that. The more guessing that I can do between each section of the story, the more fun and the more interesting it becomes when I finally go through and see the next section.

Yea I don't like the controller either......360 either. My little bro just bought one with Oblivion and Gears of War......Gears of War SUCKS!!!!! Good graphics (for a console), but the 2nd person/3rd person perspective sucks, in my opinion. Long live PC gaming.

I read somewhere that the 360 has an adapter that allows the user to connect a keyboard and mouse, that's nice! I also saw that the controllers have USB, which is cool for the guys that like to mod their controllers for the PC, for some reason :\\
