I ended up driving to Costco yesterday and picking up a copy of Halo 2, since my Amazon order is so screwed up. I haven’t had a ton of time to play with it, but I like what I’ve seen so far. The graphics are much more detailed, the vehicles feel better, and the multiplayer settings are way more advanced. I’ve made it through a couple levels in the single-player campaign, and played a couple multiplayer rounds with family members, and the whole game just feels more polished then the original Halo. Nice work, guys.
I’m planning on spending most of Saturday playing; hopefully I’ll still have the same opinion then.
