ugh my god this is without a dought the most overatted game of all time, halo 1 kills this game. first, the levels begin to lose good design after the first few(way to much backtraking and just plain suckage)2.the weapons are not as fun as halo 1s for some odd reason 3.the story o god what an utter pile of crap, i had more fun reading the books than watchin these cutscenes.this threw the great story of the original in the trash, fingers crossed for the third game to get back on track. 4. many graphical hicups are present5. the hunters seem waay to easy then they should...dont get me wrong this is still a fun game that deserves a spot in your xbox colection but it is faaaaar from perfect or a halo 1 killer. the game cant help but feel like a good experiance, good not great... so there **** you halo fanboys, halo one is a great A game, but this is a lackluster sequel thats just good,none of the flare of the original.
