Very Dissapointed with Halo2.

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
I just spent the whole morning trying to make this damn game work with XP, and of course i did as many others have.

but once i started playing- its horrible i can barley stand it, if it was called anything else but halo then i wouldn't. i would stop playing and delete it in a second.

the graphics are horrible, worse then games that i have played that were made years ago! (keeping in mind i am on xp, not sure what its like on vista/DX10)

as for the fps side of things, its horrid; the player is way to close to the screen and i feel squashed as (dunno how to explain it). on most decent fps there is at least the hand or arm- but in halo 2 it is just the gun, i feel like a floating gun- literally.

and plus it still has options for xbox controllers? i mean what a half A$$ job was this? brining it to pc.

man i wish there was a way to make it look better. thank god i didn't buy vista for this.

anyone else have any thoughts?

Halo1 was the best and in my mind allways will be. I have played halo2 in vista and it is pretty good. graphics are good and all. I enjoyed it the whole two days or so it took me to finish it.

I think maybe its just you running it on xp that is making it really bad.

Well it's not supposed to work on XP and only on vista and remember the game is 3 years old now, the graphics aren't going to be top notch

Graphics never really mattered to me if the gameplay is good enough

You can use 360 controllers on PC. Way to bash a neat feature.

Beta is. It plays almost exactly like Halo 2. Not impressed with 3.

lol exactly what i though. but from XP to vista, that would not change the gfx that much? considering on both it is able to use DX9

That was beta. You don't know what MP is going to end up like and no one knows anything about Campaign, which is where Halo 1 excelled, and I hope Halo 3 shines, because Halo 2 was fairly dissapointing in that department.

I'm willing to bet money Multiplayer changes are so small, that no one really notices them. That may as well be the final product.

And yes, I realize the campaign isn't out, and that's the only reason I'll be playing 3. Halo 2 was cool for a while but it got old fast.

Halo 3 is out for beta, BETA PEOPLE! It will get better, so stop complaining!

Not only that, Not all games have to innovate and have all these new features as long as its a great game.
