9.1 from GameTrailers. It's not a Halo killer, but it definately is one of the Xbox 360's killer apps.

I'm going to be blunt and honest.

Halo is one of THE MOST fuckin' over-praised and over-rated games in existance.

Everybody spent time talking about what it made it a good game, Fuck talking about it's problems, right? I mean I don't turn around and see textures appear out of no where, I don't see level repetition up the ass, and of COARSE I can't use an energy sword, be in mid air, and all of a sudden lunge about 10 ft upwards.. I mean hell.. i'm standing an invisable floating box, OF COARSE!

I'm sorry, I just believe that 90% of the reviewers in the world are completely biased, Gameinformer being one of them. Halo2 didn't deserve a 10, and anyone who thinks it did is just a non-sense yapping fanboy who needs a fist shoved into their cranium. I feel like a dumbass for ever subscribing to that magazine.

On another note, I heard that someone would get selected to play gears of war with megadeth.. no so sure why thats special (unless your a 'deth fan, of coarse.)

I hope I get to try this game sometime.

I totally agree with you on most of it..because halo2 did not deserve a 10 and was an ok game, not as good as first player...it was completely based on multyplayer not story line..but Gears of war will own any new game coming out because its abrand new game and has stuff in it that has neever been seen before.

Halo 2 was one of the most overrated games, but Halo: Combat Evolved is a classic. Halo 2 did have it's drawbacks, but in the end it's still a great chapter in a great series. One of the best series in gaming, to be honest.

You're right though, the game didn't deserve a 10. The only reason why some people think it sucks is because it's been so overhyped and overrated. It is a great game, but not THAT great.

Killzone for the PS2 was touted as the PS2's Halo-killer, but hardware and software limitations drowned it down. We'll have to see what happens with Killzone 2, but that pre-rendered trailer shown at E3 2005 didn't help much.

Halo was good, I wont deny that. (in fact I still play it's singleplayer from time to time) but it had it's problems as well.. but I still believe halo2 was just hype. I have tried, tried again, and again, to enjoy it's multiplayer and singleplayer.. and I have given up. Half-Life 2 has stolen me, so much in fact halo2 didn't have a chance.

Lol, it's a shame.. that video was sooo pretty :P

Haha, yeah Halo: Combat Evolved was a great game. I liked the single-player more than multiplayer though. I enjoyed Halo 2's multiplayer more and despite it's flaws, I still love it's fast paced gameplay.

From what I've read, Halo 3 is looking pretty good. The Mongoose ATV is back (CTF anyone?) and the gameplay is better than ever. Or so the folks at 1UP say (I do trust them though...).

Haha, yeah. That Killzone 2 trailer was sure awesome...until it was revealed that it was pre-rendered. It was okay at first, until Sony blatantly tried to deny it which was when I started losing respect for them.
