Wow, looks very nice! I'm impressed.

So happy i got this on preorder

Looks good. Though I already have Halo 2 on Xbox. Hope there is a demo though, so I can atleast try it out.

I'm tempted to buy it though just to checkout the new installation method. Start playing while it's still installing.

Wow, I didn't realize there would be this much of a difference

A ton of people complain that the PC version only looks slightly better than the Xbox, but I guess you really have to remember that although it looks incredibly similar, the textures are a crud load more detailed

Wow, not only Vista edition get improved high res textures, we get increased polygon counts too! I'm going to buy it. :)

Arggg, page is filtered here at work!

I have it on xbox also, but if it looks that good I have to snag it. It's an addiction. :D

XBOX gets PWNED!!! Hahah, I hate consoles. :D

Meh, it looks okay I guess. The comparison is kind of a moot point anyway because the game came out a few years ago on the original box, so it is only 480p. Original Halo on the pc looked a lot better than it did on the console for the same reason. I would rather see Halo 1 to Halo 2 screenies on the pc, cause I don't think it is going to look a whole lot better than Halo 1 did.

meh...2 years and vista req for that...


oh...btw it looks like **** -.-

That's quite an improvement from the console version for sure, just wish it wasn't $50. If you really think about it, Halo 2 has been out for a year and a half for the original XBOX, not XBOX 360. Of course there is going to be updated graphics. Looks like I might have to snatch this one . . .

It's a great game. Didn't think it quite lived up to the original, but it's a great game nonetheless.

Improved gfx, yes. Anything to be impressed about, no.

If the game is $15 or less I'll consider it, got much better games to play than a 2 year old shooter.

I saw the guys in EB preparing the 'Coming Soon' display cases and asked how much it was. They said it's going to be a full price game. So 89-99AUD. :( odd considering the first Halo was 69AUD.

Probably because with windows versions, everyone wants to dip their fingers in the end price, and the End seller also jacks it up too.

Gameswarehouse (http://gameswarehouse.com.au/longpage.asp?gameid=14231) has it listed for $60 Aud

EB games are pricey. If gameswarehouse has it for $50 then Big W will nearly match or better that price if you keep an eye out. They had sup comm for $68 same with STALKER.

Nice graphics, but wanna ask the screenshots were comparing to erm Xbox or xbox 360 to PC graphics?

04-26-07, 10:04 PM
Looks decent but this isn't exactly the title that will make me run out and upgrade from XP.

04-26-07, 10:21 PM
The reason i like gameswarehouse is because my games arrive on release date, and i only have to walk 20 feet to my postbox to collect it.

04-26-07, 10:25 PM
Well it's definatly an improvement over the XBOX version....but it's still not that great looking....sure it has high res textures...and higher poly count models...but it still looks...bleh. That being said...I'll probably still pick it up.

The game looks much better in motion. There's nothing that plays as smooth as the Halo series.

But there were plenty of good looking parts in the Xbox version that will look extremely good on the PC w/ the higher resolution and textures.

Definetely improved, but still doesn't look great IMO.
