FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

I was a HUGE Sony fan when the first Halo came out and I always hated the series. About a year ago I played Halo 1 on the PC and thought it was pretty good. Just a few weeks ago I picked up H2 for $17 and blew through the campaign in about a week. H2 has a very good story and the cliffhanger ending everyone talks about is pretty damn disappointing. The graphics are something to take note of because they are AMAZING and I didn't know the Xbox could run these kind of graphics. The game is more balanced out this time around and you don't have 300 Flood coming after like in the first one. The levels are still as linear as EVER and they actually make you feel cramped since there is not much room for you to run around in. The added weapons and Brutes are a nice touch as well. Now for XBL I don't know because I don't have Gold but I know its really good. If this game had a longer campaign and a bit more too it then this would be a perfect game. It has its flaws and glitches (over 500 so far that people have found) and if you haven't played Halo then you're just a big idiot. This is still the most overrated game ever but its still a great game.
