Default Halo2's ending sucked the big one

I hated it, and thought it screwed the game badly.

argh

Anyone else feel similarly?

What did you expect? It's a cliffhanger. All will be revealed in Halo 3.

How did it suck? There was alot of story leading to it. Only way it could have really ended is them killing all the elders then each other. To each his own I guess because I am glad it didnt end that way and cant wait to see where it goes.

Nope. I thought it ended exactly where it needed to, provided that we will see a closing game sometime in the future.

Yeah, there was another thread made on this, last year

Yes, it seems FPS games nowadays are too "good" to have proper endings, all we get is "OMG something big is going to...credits?". There have been a lot of rumors flying around about downloadable content, Halo 2.5 being an Xbox 2 launch title, Halo 3 coming out later this year, etc., but I have no idea how much of it is even remotely true.

well *sigh* beats Unreal's ending I guess

What blows is that if Bungie decides that "This whole Halo thing is getting boring" we never get a conclusion to the story...and imo that is bad storytelling.

Anyone remember Freespace2? Not quite the cliffhanger ending, but it still sucks because Volition kind of just abandoned the series after that.

Oh, and NO, H2 is NEVER going to go anywhere but Xbox. MS committed the whole multi-platform thing to Halo....and that's it. They *may* if they are feeling ultra benevolent and generous, port it right around when Halo3 ships (if it gets developed).

Looks like no Halo 2 for me then. I refuse to get an xbox for a few games ... PC is far superior if you ask me. Plus they are fools... they would make even more money by releasing it for PC. I dont think anyone is dumb enough to buy an xbox for 1 game.

People will buy XBOX for Halo 2. Not just for Halo 2 necesarilly, but MS is making more money by not releasing it for PC. I bought the XBOX just recently for Project Gotham 2 and Forza Motorsport. There's more games to the XBOX than just Halo 2 and all of the games that "are already on PC". That's why I got mine.


Anyway, yes, the ending sucked. So what? The game was excellent IMO. What matters to me is the fun I had when I was playing the game, and I did enjoy it a lot. It's not "Half-Life 2-esque" perfect, but I still thought it was excellent and worth the time. Crap ending, but great gameplay throughout it, and that's what really matters to me.

anyone care to spoil the ending or even the entire story for me since the game probably will never be ported to the pc?
