    The Best First Shooter made to date.

    I'm finally ready with the review of this awesome game! First off, this is obviously the sequel to the hugely popular initial Halo game. You are Master Chief, a space marine who is sent out to battle the enemies. You... Read Full Review

    Microsoft & Bungie dropped the ball thrice in a row.

    Halo 2, expected by many to be a very good shooter certainly failed noticeably by the many blunders from both Microsoft and Bungie together, both companies "expected" to bring customers rather than avid players... Read Full Review

    Great multiplayer xbox live game

    This game is only good for xbox live and lan parties nothing else. The campaign is very disappointing compared to the first halo. In this campaign you get to play as the aorbitor(dont know how to spell that) which really... Read Full Review

    Cool idea, presented at a 4th grade level.

    The Best Part: The Offline Multiplayer. The Worst Part: The Hype, The Story. Gameplay-8.8/10 Lots of choppy parts, some bad frame rate hampers the gameplay, but there is fast loading, and fun as hell with 4 friends.... Read Full Review

    Good game? Yes. Halo? HECK NO!

    Halo 2 is a good game, but there is one major problem with it. What is it, you ask? It is that not even Bungie, Halo developer, could make a sequel that can stand up to Halo. And this is why: Gameplay: The control ... Read Full Review

    If you don't own it.. you're an idiot.

    The Halo franchise was exactly what the X-Box needed to cement itself as a viable system. You could almost sell the console on that game alone. I for one am one of the financially inept and will postpone buying a 360 unt... Read Full Review

    Not a dull moment

    This game is well good. You wouldn't have thought that it would be anything else. But when there is so much hype leading up to something you have to make sure that it is perfect or else. I was left feeling a little disap... Read Full Review
