I agree very useless poll, since they are both completely different games, on completely different platforms, with a completely different fanbase... but If you must. I think this picture sums up my feelings appropriately. But keep in mind PC Games will always eat up XBox games IMO. (Except MK Deception)

Kinda hard to compare two "officially" unreleased games.

That are on completely different platforms, with two different styles of gameplay, multiplayer implementations, etc., etc., etc.

Halo 2 is outdated compared to Half Life 2 In Graphic departament and Physics engine, in my opinion anyways.

If XBOX is your main gaming platform and your PC isn't that good (or just like the console more), then you'll probably like Halo 2 more. I think both games will be good, but PC Gamer did call Half-Life 2 the best game ever. I dunno how true that is as it can be subjective, but that's a pretty bold statement from them.

Those are all devshots. You think you'll see detail like that at 640x480 noAA/noAF? Yeah ok.

This is how the game will look:





I'd like to see the XBOX display Halo 2 at 1024x768 with 8xAA and 16xAF (what your screenshots are implying). The screens you took are taken from cinematic angle on a PC platform, using their own XBOX emulators, with the game at higher details than the XBOX version will have, with resolution maxed out, and AA and AF maxed out.

Another example. How does Halo 1 for XBOX look?

Like this?


Or like this?


Can you spot which one is the dev shot and which one is how the game actually looks.
