Sword fights and fairies and dungeons, and this isn't a Zelda title? Surely it's just as good... right?

If you think you can enjoy the definition of budget game design, this one might make you laugh.

What do these ratings mean?

OK really I want to kick myself because I'm doing this. I am wasting my time reviewing Halo 2. This game is without a doubt the best game ever made. It comes up next to Half Life 2 (possibly better in many ways). I don't understand why someone why need to review it. It was the sequel to a game so good, my friends and I agreed that if you had a Xbox, Halo had to be in your collection. Now here is my review...

Graphics
The graphics are very good but yet not the best graphics ever seen. But it is a major upgrade from its daddy and it has its pretty moments.
8.5

Game play
2 words: flipping sweet (yes I know I said flipping no comment on that please). Where to begin? The campaign is very good and better than the first Halo. It has the same elements that made us love it the first time but with more features. New weapons and the fact that you can jack vehicles and stuff like that. One problem though................. THE ENDING!!!!!!!!! Big Cliffhanger!!!! Now the multi player is once again what made us want to be 15 friends over and 4 Xbox to one house but now it is online!!. Making the extremely fun multi player bring hours and hours of screen staring fun. You can also play as a Elite know as a Abriter but I ain't so crazy about playing as a Elite, it was still fun. The game is much better than the first and is what a sequel should be. Only flaws are that you still can drive the drop ships, marines can be passengers on the tanks and you can't drive a phantom. Besides that the great really really delivers.
