Halo 2 for PC: Good or crap? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
I feel like playing Halo 2 on Xbox again... CURSE YOU MICROSOFT/BUNGIE FOR VISTA ONLY!!

I loved Halo though. Halo 2 was great but the ending sucked compared to the first.

How in the world can this game be hard to run with a modern day PC when an original Xbox can run the thing?

I love how people actually think that..HaloHalf Life

Anyway, I tried it, I wasn't to impressed , personally I found the first Halo on Pc better, and that was a horribly done port.

Just look at the title. It says Halo so you know it is garbage!

I have it on my computer. Most of it runs fine, except perhaps the occasional slowdown, but not enough to get me killed more than once. Multiplayer hasn't worked yet, with all the hassles of getting a Games for Idiots Live membership. However, I have no idea why Xbox players love this game so much...maybe it's just that they've never played Half-Life 2, FEAR, BF2, STALKER, CSS, or Quake 3.

I have it, it looks much more dated than it should. I mean, this was at the time (2004) hailed as the best looking game ever. What a disappointment that was. I was all excited at first because I thought the cutscenes at the beginning were actually in-game renders, and then I saw what it really was...

I honestly can't believe the graphics looked 10x better than the halo 2 on Xbox. At first glance the game looked like it was from the late nineties (the beginning where you look at the red/green lights). It got slightly better afterwards but still not very good.

I'm pretty much playing for story (yeah i know i'm going to be rather disappointed) since the last time I saw master chief was in that insanely long corridor...

got it, like it, and it'd be awesome if it was a 2005 game. as far as a 2007 game, it's ok.

sux its vista only.

I agree with Katana and Clacker both. I've always felt Halo was overrated. But yes for console gamers it's about as good as it gets for FPS. Well I think the Rainbow Six series (specially 3 and Vegas) blow it out of the water! But most people don't like those as much.

I don't think it would be awesome *PC* game in 2005 either. HL2 was in 2004, and HL2 looked alot better (I can't believe some people back in '04 thought Halo 2 looked better than Half-Life 2). Maybe 2002 or something.

I guess that the most recent games I played were DX10 CoH, RS: Vegas, Oblivion etc didn't help either...

You would think in 3 years they can make the game look somewhat modern... *sigh*...
