The destruction of Halo slowed the Covenant, but it did not stop them. Fueled by faith, fury and vengeance, they have swept aside all of our defense and gained a foothold on the most precious prize of all - Earth.

Just got my game and installed it just to find out when i go to play it with my Live account that the product key is invalid. And what makes it worse i called Microsoft about it and they don't support the game anymore. No wonder some people pirate games since legit copies have this much trouble.

Just a heads up for anyone considering buying Halo 2 on the PC. The game installed fine on Windows 7 64-Bit and the Product Key was accepted during the initial installation via Windows. The game proceeded to load up until it got to the stage where I had to login to my GFWL account. So I logged in and went to register only to receive a message about the Product Key being invalid. I double checked but it was the same code that was accepted fine during the installation of the game, still no luck after re-entering a few times.

To cut a long story short, Microsoft stopped supporting Halo 2 on the PC on the 9th October 2012 and the GFWL team have stated that the servers are now switched off for Halo 2 which basically makes the PC game almost completely redundant as you can not use the GFWL service.

This game should no longer be sold by resellers as it is basically a dud.

Avoid to save disappointment.

I have always been a fan of the Halo series, I have both halo 1 for PC and xbox and halo 2 for both PC and xbox.

Halo 2 for PC should have been a good game. they have changed little bits here and there from the xbox version and it plays a lot better and you will think it's great at first (if you have played the xbox version) but then you will start not to notice the changes. The AI has been upgraded and is now smarter which makes a real difference in the game, your enemies are smarter and so are you allies which seriously helps during combat. They have also played around with the movement settings so you have cleaner movements on the game and have changed the enemy settings so your enemies will move more realistically, will speak to each other when they don't know you're there and will work together more in combat situations.

The main problem with this game is that it's Windows Vista only. However, that doesn't mean you cant get around this. There are many places you can find software to run halo 2 for Windows XP, I don't have Windows Vista and run it on XP fine. A simple Google search will find the software (be advised, if you decide to run halo 2 on XP be sure that you search the internet for a "gravemind fix" for level 12, otherwise the game will keep asking for the original DVD, even if it's in the CD tray)

Running Halo 2 on win XP does have some problems. The single player runs flawlessly, I cant fault the performance in any way but the multilayer wont let you connect to servers without vista. If you get this for XP, you will only be able to use the single player functions only.

The graphics have been improved from the xbox version but only slightly on high settings.

Having played Halo 2 on the X-box when it first came out, I can vouch for it being both fun and immensely addictive. Playing through the single player campaign is good on its own, but co-operative mode and multiplayer are where the game really comes alive.

It's a real shame then that co-operative mode has been ripped out and that, a first for PC gaming, multiplayer services will be charged for. Add to this the insane decision to restrict the game to Vista; the graphics have been improved somewhat but in no way approach DX10 or even moderately-high DX9 levels.

So why buy a version that has less features, hidden costs, and requires you to shell out for a whole new operating system when you could buy an x-box and the original version for around £[...]? Well, some might argue that Vista is an inevitable purchase. That may be so, but gamers shouldn't be arbitrarily forced into purchasing something they don't need to run the game.

Great game, terrible marketing agenda.
