Its a good game. Oh it is. So i went to the old gamestars live in london today to find a lovely playable copy of Halo 2, note they said it was 65% and it was the same level as all the videos that are floating around. There were two big ass queues each side of this 20ft room they built to look like it was from the game, one queue was to play on the red team and the other for the blue. the red were elites, blue were master chiefs, i was a master chief. The only prob was you had to wait an hour and a half to get a five minute go on it, but it was worth it oh yes it was. Played just like the original, which is a ok by me, dual guns are just a bit superfly , all the vehicals look alot better and feel alot better when driving em, weapons feel better when shooting em, no pistol, but someone somewhere said it was gonna be in, shot gun looks abit different with some little green lights onit about the place, also looks alot better when fireing, think its a bit stronger aswel, also couldnt dual hold this with any gun same with sniper, plasma rifle looks hella better than before, didnt try the ol rocket launcher didnt have time but the grenades look a little bit better, the needler was better in halo 2 but still not my weapon of choice the new gun, i forget its name, with single shot when zoomed in and 3 shots when normal is quite a nifty lil gun handy thing, good for takin people out when their on them big ass machine gun up top, unfortunatly i didnt get to use the elite sword blade thing ma'bob 1. i didnt wanna waste tryin to get it and 2. everyone else was goin gun crazy and i wouldnt have got close enough to use it.
now some minor gripes, but this was only 65% done so they got time i suppose, or they could have changed it already. Getting in to the ghost and warthog was not as simple as past times, i had to be completely facing the side of it and you dont just press x, cuz i did that many a time and it didnt get me in, i had to hold it for about half a second to a second to get in, but then again this could have just been me but it was mighty anoying when u only got 1:30 mins left and u wanna run someone down. Another thing was the graphics didnt look a* they looked b+ but im pretty dam sure that its because they used some cheap asS screens to play it on.
apart from that it was kick ass, not just playin it but knowin that i was amoung the first to play it in the uk.
just thought id let u know my view on it, dam good.
