Here it comes! More game reviews from me! And for once no more Star Wars. This time I`m going with another space Si-Fi series. This one is called Halo 2! Released back in 2004 on both the PC and the X-Box, Halo 2 has you once again taking the role of the protagonist of the series "Master Chief." As MC you must stop the Covenant`s leaders from activating a 2nd Halo. Along with MC You also play as an "Elite" called the Arbiter who must also try and stop the Covenant`s leaders from activating the 2nd Halo. Of course the game involves much more than that, but I`m just giving the basics.

The game play`s controls are similar to that of the 1st game, although with several new features added. Most notable was the feature of duel wielding. Meaning you could carry and fire two of the same weapons at the same time. Only certain weapons could do this though. Sound effects from the 1st game got a big revamp to have them sound crisper and more realistic. Along with a stereo effect to them not included for the 1st game unless you also bought the Custom Edition pack/upgrade. The original sound track also got a rocking remix and other songs the soundtrack in this game also got a more rocking version and several new songs were also added. In fact Halo 2`s CD soundtrack is one of the best selling Video Game soundtracks ever. Graphics for the game were also completely overhauled from the 1st game improving just about everything from the Ships and character models down to the ammo shots and blood spatters. Colors were more gritter than the 1st and the voice/mouth movements were vastly improved by use of motion tracking. I probably can guess that everyone knows that this game has gotten plenty of awards. From best Console game, to best sound track, and many many more. The story line to the game did receive some criticism though. Having to switch back and forth between two characters was said to have made the story confusing to some. I for one don`t think so. The story line is beautifully written and well thought out. This alone would be good enough to keep you hooked until the very last moment of the game!

All in All this game is completely and epically awesome! When I 1st played this game I could not stop until I had beaten it. I only took a break for the toilet and to eat. I`ve played it a couple of more times since then and I still couldn`t get enough. If you want to play one of the best 1st person shooters ever created. then Halo 2 is definitely for you!
