Ok first off I want to tell you I'm not totally I love with, nor am I totaly against
Halo, I'm netural I like it alot and play it, but I would have a stroke over it.
(Oh and I won't tell any story spoilers).
Man I played Halo 2 tonight or I guess this morning, and well the multi-player was pretty good, it was like Halo 1 but with little additions (that I'm sure most of you guys know about) but it was really fun for about the first couple of hours, but will be great for link-ups.
Now Single player wasn't that great at all, actually it was awful, the voices sounded weird and the story really didn't have much to do with what they have been advetising, and it takes a second to draw the bump-mapping. the graphics were about the same (more polies in levels, less in players), but the bump-mapping for me didn't really make it look THAT good, and the level were about 4 times longer like bungie but 3 times more stretched out and take 2 times the time to load. But I think that the over-hype is much to blame for some of the downfalls.
To sum it up multiplayer was good but not much is new (most of the stuff you can get in H1 with PC, CXE, NMP) mostly like a finished Halo 1, but is still very great fun. Single (I thought) was very lame, seemed... I dunno... kinda thrown together. But it is still a pretty good story, and continues the saga with our hero Master Chief.
In the end the ups prolly will outnumer the downs.
But anyways its still a pretty good game, if you like the 1st be very sure to get your self a copy!
I still think it's a good game, just doesn't live up hype (which is almost impossible for a game to do, look at bute force)
MC is still cool.
I'm just saying this is what "I" thought of the game you (and others) may have a completly diffrent opinion, I may have been a little harsh, but these are all the low points I VERY sure the good points like multiplaye will cover up these problems!
I'm not tring to hurt anyones feelings or Halo pride.
PS: plz go easy on me
