The pacing and art design have held up well over the years as have the multiplayer offerings. Sadly, the graphics just aren't that impressive any more. Worse yet, the performance issues will keep it from running as well as games that quite frankly look better.

Halo 2 is a significant step forward from the original but hardly revolutionizes the genre or even the series. The game starts off playing and looking like the original and slowly evolves into something slightly new and improved. Gameplay and graphics have a few new tricks up their sleeve and the sound and music are as solid as ever, and you can’t deny the appeal of the online element.

You name it, Halo 2 does it at an A+ level: wonderfully improved visuals, a solidly engaging and well-scripted storyline (with an unexpected sense of humor intermixed with the strong religious overtones), good voice-acting, splendidly ear-pleasing orchestral music, and the coup de grace, exciting online play.

Despite a rather short campaign and a disappointing storyline, Halo 2 is an exceptional shooter that frequently delivers thrilling, memorable, and unique moments in its online, co-op, and single-player modes.

The truth is, for every hour our blood was pumping like a turbo charged locomotive through our adrenaline scored veins, there were an equal number of hours where we were bored with the unimaginative repetition of formulaic corridor based FPS trawls. [Single-Player review; Multiplayer also rated 90]

Right now all I can say is it’s good. Damn good. Actually, the multiplayer portion of the game is brilliant. It is the best console-based online shooter ever made...
