5 out of 5 eggs Great Port of an instant classic!! 10/12/2008

This review is from: Halo 2 PC Game

Pros:

Superb graphics improvements, the gameplay is solid, and for those who originally played the xbox version, you can use a 360 controller on a PC so you're not having to learn new controls. Overall, way better than the xbox version.

Cons:

Too bad you can't play split screen on this version, but then practically all PC games are that way, and it's only useful if your PC is hooked to a big screen HDTV.

Other Thoughts:

For those who have been complaining about Halo 2 being Vista only, the reason is because Vista is the only OS that supports DirectX 10, which was utilized to make the graphics on this game look as good as they do. For those gamers who haven't upgraded to Vista yet (or dual booted like me) then you haven't seen the major difference in graphics that DX10 can offer. This is also the reason why it took so long for Halo 2 to come out on the PC.

Just my 2 cents :)
