  • Despite a rather short campaign and a disappointin

    By Mr.Anji V.I.P  Oct 23, 2006

    ### Halo 2, the long-awaited sequel to one of the most widely praised, most influential first-person shooters ever created, has a very tough act to follow. Fortunately, it's built on a foundation that's as strong as they come. The game's success was preo...rdained--publisher Microsoft tallied more than 1.5 million Halo 2 preorders in the weeks leading up to the game's release, which demonstrates just how confident Halo's fans are in the sequel's quality. But how is it, really? The good news is, the sequel to the Xbox's defining action game is an absolutely superb, fully featured game, boasting an excellent presentation, a highly replayable campaign, and the greatest, most complete online multiplayer component in a console shooter yet. A surprisingly disappointing story and a fairly short single-player portion are noticeable shortcomings, but there's just so much breadth of content in Halo 2, and the action itself is so outstanding, that there can be no denying its quality. Overall, it's one of the very best action games available. There are several reasons why the original Halo ranks up there with a very small number of other first-person shooters as one of the definitive games in the genre. For one thing, Halo succeeded at establishing a cohesive, memorable, and original science-fiction universe. For another, the Master Chief, Halo's cybernetic protagonist, made a great hero. A fearless, enigmatic man, the Chief could succeed where pure flesh-and-blood humans could not, and guiding him to victory against the alien menace known as the Covenant, as well as the parasitic creatures called the Flood, made for a gripping story and an intense and satisfying gameplay experience. Halo's gameplay was amazing in that it seamlessly integrated top-notch first-person shooting with incredibly fun third-person vehicular sequences and outstanding friendly and enemy artificial intelligence. The game's subtle innovations--the tactical consequences of such things as having recharging energy shields, being able to carry only a couple of weapons at a time, the ability to throw powerful grenades in between shots, and the option of dishing out fierce melee attacks--also did a lot to differentiate Halo from other shooters, and proceeded to influence subsequent games. Halo's multiple, well-balanced difficulty settings, two-player cooperative campaign option, and assorted multiplayer modes also ensured that the game had tons of lasting appeal. All these factors contributed to the game's well-deserved success, and they're all back in Halo 2. For the most part, the sequel takes an "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach to its gameplay--everything that you loved about Halo's action is back in full effect here. At the same time, the handful of new additions in Halo 2 are well thought out and well implemented, enriching the gameplay and making it seem fresh but still familiar. Read more Less

  • One of the best (if not the best) games on Xbox

    By Rahul  Mar 12, 2005

    ### If you have an Xbox, you must have Halo 2. It's absolutely imperative. If you loved Halo, you'll worship Halo 2. If you hated Halo, you'll worship Halo 2. If you just came from Planet Zog, and don't know what videogames are, you'll love Halo 2. Very...few games do nearly everything right. There are a few, which include the brilliant Splinter Cell series, Resident Evil 4, Ninja Gaiden, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and Halo 2. Halo was an awesome game when it came out in 2001, but a couple of things on the Xbox prevented it from being omnipotent. The last three levels were conspicuously the same as the first, third and fifth levels, no Xbox Live, the energy sword was not wieldable, there were no Banshees and Wraiths in multiplayer, and the serious shortage of weapons hurt a bit. Now, nearly all of those problems have been fixed, with some more. Now, you can dual-wield different weapons, wield the energy sword, pilot Banshees in multiplayer and drive wraiths in both single and multiplayer, have tons of fun jacking enemy vehicles and just drowning in the pure bliss of carnage that is Halo 2. Many new weapons have been added to the Covenant arsenal, like the Beam Rifle, Energy Sword, Carbine, Brute Shot, Brute Plasma Rifle and the rest of what you know from Halo 2. The human arsenal has a bullet-hose SMG and Battle Rifle as additions. The Master Chief can jump higher now, and when he falls from a great height onto land, he doesn't die. I'll end my review here because I don't want to reveal anything, but I will say that you will feel betrayed by the ending. If you have Xbox Live, get Halo 2. If you have an Xbox, get Halo 2. This game comes very close to complete refinement, and is one of the best games you could buy for your Xbox, period. Read more Less
