    GamerNode 9 of 10
    In short, Halo 2 is what you would expect coming from console to PC, with the obligatory upgrade in resolutions and graphics, and no real fiddling with the formula that has sold so many copies worldwide. The developers did manage to piggyback the game onto some exciting and revolutionary technology, and that should prove interesting in the months to come. If you're a PC gamer who has ignored the Halo craziness up until now, or just a fan of the series and happen to have a Vista equipped PC, check this one out.
