Halo 2's features are clearly advertised, duel wielding! X-box live!, destructable vehicles! But once you get the game you pretty much know what it has(not the storyline, the features).
What you first play Half Life 2 you are surprised at every turn. Its the enviroment, its the feeling that wow, this level looks like that place I drove past on our trip to LA. OMG i can use the gravity to pick up scanners and use em as buzzsaws, OMG the pulse rifle secondary fire vaporized that guy, OMG i just dropped that car on those zombies, killing them instantly, OMG i can roll nades into gun turret holes, OMG my crossbow bolt pinned the guy to the wall upside down by his leg, or OMG this blue gravity gun can pick up enemies and throw them at other enemies. I know I've played ravenholm about 3-4 times just cause its awesome killing zombies with the Gravity gun.
And look how far Half Life has come, people are still making mods for a 6 year old game. Imagine what they can do with the source engine!? Half Life 2 will last much longer than Halo2 and I bet Microsoft is trying to make Halo 3 as fast as possible so people don't lose intrest in the Halo series. Whereas Valve will take it's time because Half Life 2 isn't gonna lose intrest anytime soon.
you know it's true, Half Life 2 greatness is too difficult to describe
A game that is ironically fun to play even though all it takes to win is to be a pussy and camp with the sword, rocket launcher, sniper rifle, or any combination of the two, AND considering alot of people who play online are whiney bitches who make lame-ass excuses everytime they lose
Joe schmo: DUDE we lost by 1 kill. I can't believe it!!!
Bob Schmob: Yeah, that was gay. We got noobed by the sniper whore the whole match.
Red team at post game lobby: Haha, good game guys.
Blue team at post game lobby: That was the gayest, most bullshitty match ever. You cheated you fucking standbyers. I'm gonna report you to bungie you litte faggots.
The sequel to Halo: Combat Evolved, a game for the Xbox.
Halo 2 is the sequel to halo
Something that abruptly halted any interest in the outside world. In this game, I saw a balance so pure it erased all meaning of many things I once considered significant. This game has now become my world.
Call me a loser. Tell me I have no life. I'll show you how much I care.
Halo 2 is awesome.
The sequel to the 2001 game of the year, Halo. Developed by Bungie, it is a game that excels in both Single player and multiplayer. Now with Xbox live, Halo 2 is a must for any FPS fan. Though it has it's weak points(ending, some annoying glitches), it is a very amazing game overall. And it looks incredible for the hardware it is running on.
Note: This definition is not for half life 2 fanboys or halo 2 haters.
Gamer 1: Man, I'm sick of *game goes here*.
Gamer 1: Hey *friends name*, do you want to play some H2?
Gamer 2: Sure, ill invite a couple other friends too, we can fire up a game of CTF.
Gamer 1: Cool, ill see you online
1.Possibly the only reason my cousins come over now and why we see them so frequently, as well as our fruit bowl which they gladly take advantage of. They really need to get their own Xbox and Halo 2 game.
2. The sequel to Halo:Combat Evolved.
3. Is one of the greatest games ever and is the reason I get up early on holiday mornings so I can play it more.
4. The game before Halo 3 which will be the fastest selling video game in the universe. Much like the seventh Harry Potter book which everyone will have a copy of in a matter of minutes.
Cousins: Can we come over today?
Me: You just want to play Halo 2 again don't you?
Cousins: Well, we do like your fruit bowl too, we don't get pears at home.
Me: Well, seeing as we've seen you almost everyday for the easter holidays, my mum is now used to seeing you. Repeatedly.
Mum: I've just come back from shopping.I have the real grapes, and the decoy grapes for when they come over.....
The most anticipated game of 2002,2003, and 2004 that has been delayed so many fucking times that if it doesn't come out soon people are going to riot in the street and kill eachother.
person 1: Yes! Halo 2 comes out in a week!
person 2: No it doesn't, didn't ya hear that it got delayed again?
person 1: What mother fucker!! You gotta be shitting me...im gonna fuckin kill you its all your FAAAAULLT!!!!
One of the best First Person Shooters out there. The only games that come close to it are the original Halo, also for xbox, and Goldeneye, for N64. The game is most fun online in Xbox Live mulitplayer.
"I totally owned those guys in Halo2!"
