BETTER THE CONSOLE VERSION

PostedAugust 26, 2010
Yes, I would recommend this product
This game looks and plays better than the console version. Works on WIN7 64. This along with HALO CE is one of my favorites. Good story and a solid shooter. Still plenty of people online.

be careful

You won't run it without Vista or Windows 7. Missing DLL file will stop you. Found out also it's not optimized for mobile integrated video. Better if you have a dedicated video card mobile or desktop.
Pros:pleasure

Just not what I was hoping for...

PostedJanuary 22, 2010
No, I do not recommend this product.
Gameplay seems directed towards the 12 - 16 year olds. I bought into the hype and got this without ever seeing screenshots or reading reviews. My mistake. Graphics not what I was hoping for at all. So I went down to the store and bought Wolfenstein. MUCH BETTER test of my new video card and extra memory.

Decent game as expected

PostedSeptember 10, 2007
Yes, I would recommend this product
It's not that different from Halo 2 on the Xbox. But the graphic upgrade and new features on multiplayer will make this game extend the life of the popular fps series.
Pros:This is a great game from the Xbox that has finally come to the PC. The graphics on this are so much better than the Xbox; Medium is 360 quality and high is just insane. Some sounds have been redone to add more of an effect to the game. LIVE is just like it is for the Xbox. If you have a Gold account on Xbox it carries over and vice versa.
Cons:You have to have a gold account to host games and play games hosted by that person with gold account, so if don't have a gold account you are stuck with servers.

Vista supercharges Halo2

PostedJuly 17, 2007
Yes, I would recommend this product
If you had the Xbox 360 version or just want to wait out for the third installment then this title might be a little out of date for you. But the graphics for Vista are enjoyable and do revive the game so that it is a great substitute for the wait until the Halo 3.
Pros:The greatest accomplishment with this release is the graphical increase Vista gives. The title is also the first to hit Windows Live with Vista. With that in mind remember this game as been out for quite a while on the Xbox series and has been revamped for Vista. There is a sense of Wow with this game as per Vista's eye treatment. A long lasting title like this will always be a favorite as well as a legend. Mast Chief has been a favorite and Bungii has created a cultural game icon.
Cons:Windows Live does not allow crossplatform gaming on this title due to the differences between the software developed for the Xbox and Vista's newer version. There will be no patch or fix for this, but titles after will have the capability. The release is priced a little high for a title hitting over 2 years old, with that in mind the newest version is graphicall pleasing, and the third installment is just around the corner.
