Performance

The minimum Vista requirement is 3.0, based on the windows experience index. My experience with 1GB RAM and and index of 4.5 was ok, but load times were very slow. By adding and additional 2GB of RAM my index was increased to 5.0. With load times reduced to just a few seconds. The game itself is every bit as good as the original Halo and provides about the same number of hours of playtime. My recomendation is to have at least 2GM of RAM, and a good graphics card with 256MB or more of RAM.

Review 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.

Features Single-player: Be the hero. Take on the Covenant on your own and live firsthand the epic saga of the Master Chief. Wield dual weapons. Use previously undiscovered Covenant arms. Drive vehicles and pilot aircraft. Battle intelligent enemy A.I., and all-new alien opponents. Cooperative play: Team up with a friend and save humankind together. Xbox Live multiplayer: Improving upon the original Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2 is Xbox Live-enabled, allowing up to 16 gamers to play against people around the world. Halo 2 redefines the social experience of online gaming. New technology lets groups of friends stick together, find games, and meet new opponents. Players can split into multiple teams, form clans, or go head-to-head against new friends or old enemies. Players can personalize Covenant Elite or Human Spartan armor with custom colors and emblems to enhance battlefield recognition.

Improved A.I.: Fight side by side with fellow human survivors who react quickly and naturally to events and circumstances; they help you when needed, man guns, and even drive vehicles for you. No two games seem the same, as enemy attackers coordinate, triangulate, and annihilate. They duck to take cover, clamber over obstacles, or smash their way through debris to reach you. Fully positional Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound: Duck as a rocket sizzles over your head. Take action as a Covenant Elite growls behind you. Every sound is fully positional, bringing the world of Halo 2 to an even more vivid level of realism.
