you poor soul. you're just obsessing over seeing a nice review and pix of halo 2...when i've played it

it kicks butt. one thing that ticked me off is that the jeep driving is much more realistic in that you can't slide it all over the place anymore. nor can you get it going to top speed in as short a space. no fuel rod in the banshee, not in multiplayer ne way. theres a new version of blood gulch in halo 2. basicly the same as the first one only modified. base it now 3 teir. bottom is banshee hanger, middle is flag and guns, top is sniper rifle etc. same as b4 just added on a banshee hanger....if you want to know more. just im me...

9.7 is the highest. And OXM doesn't have a website for reviews. Its a magazine (official x-box magazine) thats your only way of reading it. Also to "lbreevesii" doesn't it start with a C or something. And there aren't any tanks anymore, but the bases have underground parts with a banshee garage and there are more like cave things?

Yeah, this is the only branch of OXM to give Halo 2 less than perfect.. all the other ones (UK ect) gave it perfect 10/10's.

OMG OMG ITS HALO 2 I THINK I'LL CRAP MY PANTS!!!!!!! just kidding, but you know what if it turns out that is sucks or that you just don't like it or it gets old too fast, you know? What will you do then, what will you think/say about it? I hope it meets the expectations and exceeds them but you can't be sure till its out. And we gotta stop making new threads about it everytime we hear something new.

It's the most overhyped game EVER, just because it got a 9.7 means nothing.

Game reviews from people that are paid to do them suck and are biased. Only reviews you can trust are people you know that have the same tastes as yours.

it really depends on how you look at it. The single player is alright. but where its really at is the multi-player. Its pretty sick. one map that was not mentioned was beaver creek. that and blood gultch where the only old maps left in the game. Its basicly the same as battle creek. sniper rifle has less kick and you can lock on with the rocket launcher now. And the warthog and the ghost suck. cant do donuts or anything. but the best weapon is probably the sword. i would probably give it and 8.5, but not a 9.7

I've played it and honestly I wasn't impressed. The game was not near as good as it's hyped to be. Just Halo with a few extra things added. The pistol takes no skill at all. The whole game takes no skill at all, unlike the first where you could take time to get better. Not all it's hyped to be.

ya, the pistol is almost useless now. the new assauclt rifle, the one with the scope and all is the new pistol. Oh ya, and the health bar is gone and you just have a shield now

Hey mailleman I don't know what you got stuck up your A$$ but according to what almost everyone behind you says its not what they are saying it was supposed to be and that its overhyped. Get your facts straight first before you try and flame me next time.

Eh hem.... halo has 100% ZERO kick on the sniper rifle. In halo 2, the sniper rifle has more kick. I'm glad the ghost and hog suck, becuase that is the only way i die in halo multiplayer, noobs get kills they dont deserve.

The pistol takes alot of skill in halo 1, i dont know what your talking about... do you know long it took me to get good enough for 3-hit kills nearly every time?

I think the second will help draw out more true good players, not just those who can use the pistol. The sniper has kick now, so if you miss you have to re-align your shot making it MUCH more difficult.

Of course this game takes skill, skill and time, as everything does. I have not yet played halo 2 but I am a huge fan of the original, and I am a member of many halo communities. I have talked to many people who have played it and read every bit of info available. From my love of the original halo, this game is more than all its hyped up to be. Maybe its not for those of you who wernt quite halo fanatics, but for us crazy hardcore fans, this game is gonna be beyond good.

Don't talk if you haven't played Halo 2.

I said that in the first one is takes skill douchebag. You could actually get better and get 3 hit kills. Unlike Halo 2 where the pistol takes no skill at all.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but why does the halo 2 pistol take no skill? Its supposed to be weaker, and have no scope. Its also less accurate.

Dont flame, I didnt flame you at all.
