Halo 2 Review

Now that Halo 2 has been out for a couple years, I felt it was time that I gave it a review.

Overall, it is quite good, and makes many improvements over the original. Anyone who says that losing the pistol is bad is either crazy or a liar. The only real problem is that the game is pretty clearly unfinished. I'm not refering to the ending, which I didn't mind.

What I'm talking about is the crazy degree of pop-up that occurs in the game. It's surreal when you see people floating in mid-air for several seconds before their chairs appear under them. And this happens in cutscenes! It's completely absurd.

Another indicator of an unfinished game is when the people who made it say that they cut out three levels.

Anyway, the game has a good deal of Ron Perlman as Lord Hood. He is not, however, the protagonist, or even a starring character.

Halo 2 final rating:
3/5 Ron Perlmans.
