Halo 2 Review

Ok, initally i apoligise if there is some official thread or something this is the first time ive ventured into the Video game Forums. Also this review contains no spoliers.

When i first booted up the original Halo i went into it biased, how could anything improve on Goldeneye, ohhhh but it did Halo is by far the best first person shooter ive ever played and one of my all time favourite games, therefore it goes without saying that i was really looking forward to Halo 2 i got it 6 days before it was released in the UK and booted it up, instantly Steve Vai playing the Halo tune comes on and i couldnt wait to get into the game, i whack it on and after a extremly awesome FMV sequence im into the games, everything look slick and smooth and a definate improvement on the original games graphics. The enviroments are noticablly most impressive and vast a view from a spaceship window as soon as you starts shows other ships and earth and is truely awe worthy. One thing i noticed straight away with this game is that there seem to be a lot more aliens and a lot less ammo, some people may prefer this but to me it seemed irritating not only was ammo annoying me but the seemingly unstructered way that i was being attacked coupled with low light levels acted for a confused gaming expericance.

When i first heard of the new features for Halo2 i was also excited to hear about the the implimentation of being able to hold 2 weapons, however this again was a dissapointment, the system is confusing when you hold both weapons you cant throw grenades or butt with the gun as it causes you to drop a weapon, also when you hold both weapons the right trigger controls one and the left the other so while ones reloading the other one can still shoot. Basically i found it confusing but hopefully ill get used to it.

On to multiplayer mode and personally what i spend most time on, nice and similar to the first game theres now the inclusion of banshees (however these are hard to fly) and some nice scenery, a level which is basically a copy of the originals blood gulch is a let down and although it follows the same principle with two bases at each end its noticably smaller.

You may of noticed that ive gone into a lot of negetives here, and if kept it quite brief but if you have any questions ask and ill answer. Im sure youll read lots of things telling you how awesome the game is, the game is awesome dont get me wrong its amazing but these are some of its flaws.

Still go get the game now its amazing and you wont regret it

Tom

I used to think like that, but then I got into C&C and a few other PC games.

Yeah man i sit in my house all day looking at my exceptionally small knob and wishing that one day i could kiss a real girl.

(Note - In two seconds my friend will be registering and coming in here to post and tell you that he beat me in a game of Halo 15 -4, this has happened once in 3 years and was only because it was on sniper no shields and that he seriously sits in his house playing it online 3 hours a day)

Nice grammar.

It's pretty sad you can't figure out how to get past the swear filter.

Now, I suggest you go play in traffic.
