16 August 2007
  • Conclusion: Okay, so I did a crap job of coming up with good excuses to buy Halo 2 for Windows Vista. Perhaps, just like the good games in the Superman franchise, there aren’t any.

Video Game talk
15 July 2007
  • Excerpt: Revisiting a title on a new platform can revive the nostalgic feeling once felt years ago, but one has to wonder if the ancient game can hold its own against the latest releases.

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: Master Chief is back, and this time Earth's coming with him. Actually, that's probably just how it seems, considering the massive media blitz and buildup surrounding one of the most anticipated titles (and definitely one of the most anticipated sequels) in console history.

Halo 2 (Vista)

hardware heaven
16 June 2007
  • Excerpt: Making a two year old Xbox game the first Vista only title was probably one of the most bizarre decisions made by Microsoft lately. First of all, Vista is supposed to be a next-gen operating system, so using a game that barely has any DX9 functionality is kind of dumb.

Common Sense Media
16 June 2007
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is not for kids -- hence the PAUSE rating and recommended age of 16 years and older. It's a moderately challenging first-person shooter game with lots of blood, gore, and scariness. You will use guns, swords, grenades, and other weapons to inflict death.
