Default Re: Just finished HALO 2

With actual people giving their opinions on games though, you have an even bigger problem than with reviews: who likes what games is complete luck of the draw. Look at the feedback for Halo 1: some people hate it, others think it's the best game ever. If you're in a store looking at games, either kind of person can come up to you and tell you that Halo either sucks or rules, and the same applies to online forums. Funny thing is, I've seen people's opinions on Halo 2 from the leak just as varied as Halo 1 (everything from sucks [like this thread] to decent to great).

Oh, and interesting that you bring up Fable, Ninjaman, because for like 2 weeks after that game came out all I heard was good things about it from people who played it (at least in the area I live in). Strangely, I find more games that I think are underrated than overrated. Breakdown and Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders are actually some of my favorite Xbox games, but they didn't exactly get great scores (especially Breakdown).

I really dont see halo 2 being bad. Maybe you didnt like the first one, I donno. Maybe you just dont like console games. Maybe you dont even have it and you're just trolling. Can you post pictures of your TV with the halo 2 menu on it?

Anyone know where I can read some spoilers on Halo2? Seeing as I'm never going to play the game I'd at least like to find out what happens. Yeah I know, just borrow someone's xbox and play it if it comes down to it but I honestly don't even want to bother. If it's not going to run on my computer I don't care to mess with playing the actual game at all. Thx

You're missing out on a lot by just sticking to computers.

Maybe so, I don't really care though. Do you know where to read some spoilers?

Spolier:

Master Chief finds out that the reason behind the FLOOD is due to French Pirates. So he gathers a bunch of blue blooded brits to join him as he travels to France. On his way to France he finds out that Cortana was written by a dirty French man and realizes that Cortana has been using Master Chief for her own whims. Master Chief then uses google to build a time machine so that he can go past in time and kick the moron who leaked the Halo 2 game and also tell bungie to hurry and port it too the pc platform. Am I missing something? Yes I have way too much time on my hands...

I'd suggest just reading one of the guides that will certainly be available online a day or two after launch. You should get the whole story there.

Oh jesus! What difference does it make really? If he played the game, he played the game! Just because its a pirate version doesn't make his opinion any less valid.

I think he was a little silly to post here knowing the general views of this forum's users about pirating, but he still knew that he wasn't a great fan of the game. He even gave a few reason's (though apart from repeating the "flood" thing, didn't sound overly bad - I expected bad graphics having seen screenshots).

All you people who are so quick to flame him for pirating, YOU ARE JUMPING ON YOUR HIGH-HORSE. If you're so bothered go and ****ing complain to the authorities about him. Flaming him and telling him your views on the matter ain't going to change anything. Nor will your "I'm going to ignore you because your a thief!". You changed a thread about one thing into something else completely, just so you could jump on your high horse.

Also, to the Mods, if this thread was about HL2, it would have been closed instantly I believe. I don't see why you decided on this "I'll leave it a while" thing. The topic in the first instance was virtually flamebait (though I dont think it was intended) and then it just continued into pointless posts about nothing relevant to what the thread was made for. Hey, but its your forums...

What i find funny is that there are numerous reports that the pirated version of Halo 2 are affected by glitches, anomolies and unintentional stuff ups. almost like a copy protection without being a copy protection...
