a game that people whine about, for some totally unknown reason. the game has been delayed yet only once. like all other game in the world. (and if the game will never be released, how can you buy it after 30 years?) the game will rock. simply. just get the whiner off (who will play the game anyways)

HL2 singleplayer campaign > Halo 2 campaign


Halo 2 multiplayer over xbox live or LAN is...priceless. Certaintly pwns CounterStrike or HL2 deathmatch any day. I lost two years of my life doing nothing much else but halo 2. But halo 2 has absolutely no redeeming value in its campaign mode.
A definition for Half Life 2 which ended up mostly about Halo 2.

Sequel to the most linear shooter ever. (you know f(x)=x)
Seriously, this game is too fucking linear.

You have a crowbar (gun "1"), it takes out enemy "A" (first enemy encountered) with realtive ease.
Enemy "B" comes along, the crowbar does not work well against enemy "B"...
So you find gun "2", it is effective at killing enemy "B" and anything lower than enemy "B"...
Enemy "C" comes along and the process repeats until you get some god-like gun that kills everything.

Great A.I.?
My ass...
The A.I. is dumb as shit, if the fucking thing sees you it will stay still wherever it is and shoot at you no matter where you go or what gun it has.
If you want insane A.I. give HALO 2 in legendary a spin, THAT is good A.I.

Its does have good graphics, but I still prefer the Unreal Engine 2 (UT2K4), its more flexible and powerful.
However, no one gives a shit about graphics if the game sucks ass. (except fanboys and graphics whores).

I'm not saying this is a bad game, but from a gameplay stance, this is piss poor. Truly good gameplay resembles TLG's System Shock 2. This game dissapoints, just like the first.

The single most overrated game of all time. Despite having good graphics and realistic physics, it has a plot that makes very little sense and leaves more questions than it answers. The weapons are unoriginal and boring, with the exception of the gravity gun which is really nothing but a toy to showcase the new physics engine. Though the voice acting in the game was good, the dialogue was ridiculous and contributed nothing to the suspension of disbelief. There was not nearly enough variety in the host of enemies faced by the player. The installation process was truly hell, requiring the player to download an additional program (Steam, a problem of it's own that I won't go into here), meaning those without Internet access who purchased the game are 100% fucked. It also had a major glitch that would halt the installation process if "Counter-Strike Source" was deselected from the install menu. I finished the game, and was utterly unimpressed by its ultimately anti-climatic ending. I have to say, this game make even Deus Ex: Invisible War look like a worthy sequel. I've never been more disappointed by a game in my life. If Valve makes an expansion pack that adequately finishes the story of Adrian Shephard from Opposing Force (the excellent expansion pack from the first Half-Life, for you morons out there who never played the original), I might be able to forgive them but until then, I'm sticking with Doom 3 and Far Cry.
Half-Life 2 doesn't come close to matching it's predecessor.

Another boring FPS. Sadly, it has a huge database of n00bish fan-boys, who say it is "godly" and "awesome" and "beats the living shit out of Halo". Some, actually, alot say HL2, is better then Halo 2. But I say, they both suck after a while of playing. Yet again, there hasnt been a game that truly revoulutionizes ( I know I spelled that wrong. ) the FPS Genre. Some say HL2 is that true game, but I say nay. HL2 only has graphics and a good physics engine. Whoo-hoo. If your smart, you wont care about that, you would care about the fun factor of the game. I dont give a rats ass if HL2 has an awesome physics engine, or good graphics. Personally, I have more fun playing Pong then HL2 and Halo 2.
Friend- Didja buy that awesome game HALF LIFE 2?! ITS GOT AWESOME GRAPHICS AND PHYSICS!!!!

Me- Why would I buy that? So I can waste 50 dollars on it, play it for a week and get bored of it? Its just a carbon copy of another FPS.


Me-.... Your a fucking retard....
