A Must - simple as,
This review is from: Halo 2 - Best of Classics (Xbox) (Video Game)
This game is frankly the best FPS shooter on any system - Fact. Halo was groundbreaking this takes it to the next level.
Again your the masterchief - 1 metric ton, 7ft tall test-tube built fighting machine. A sign of the earths might, the very best there is in tactical/fighting methods, the last of the Spartan's ( see Halo Clone Wars on Youtube).
Again alien masses are rising and attacking earth and all it stands for, and its upto you masterchief to turn the tide.
The first level shows much of what we loved from Halo, The A.I again is brilliantly adaptive to the level of person playing. this time 2 handed fighting available and the bigger range of vehicles you can drive.
Brilliant multiplayer and a story that only lets you down right at the end..again the infamous legendary difficulty will take you a while - with a few secret areas to find.
If you've played Halo or maybe not - know this - Its got one of the best soundtracks on any game and believe me this makes a huge difference in a game. The FMV's are again beautiful with the slight humour and love the designers had in making this game show through easily.
This is a must simple as- and its fairly cheap at the minute so theres no excuse, come on how many times have we paid full price for a completely rubbish game. Play the first level, if possible put the thing through an AMP and turn it up loud, and be amazed.
You'll know what I mean when you get to the point in the first 30mins ...when 'where you going?' ...'I'm going to give them back their bomb' that this is a true classic.... no wonder this shifted 2.5 million copies.
