Halo 2 (Vista, Win 7)

The game is currently $14 US @ Amazon and it is still worth every penny.

I grew tired of BF3, among others, much quicker than I expected and ended up installing one of my favorite games of all time and damn am I thankful that I did. There is still a wonderful community of online PC players and playing this classic title in all it's HD glory has been a nostalgic blast for me. I've been playing it with a 360 for windows controller, works like a charm.

To me, no game has ever matched the fun level of a Halo 2 LAN party. If you enjoyed Halo 2 as much as I did, I highly suggest you do yourself the favor of enjoying it again.

I often still play Halo 2 + Unreal Tournament LAN parties. :D

Its a shame that the game was ruined for me from the constant need to have to call Microsoft and wait a week for a new product key. Since I reinstall Windows often..

Halo 2 for PC failed because it didn't support XP. And by "didn't support XP", I don't mean it didn't run on XP without some hacking.

My Xbox broke the day before I got Halo 3. I'm still waiting for the PC version to "finish the fight", 5 years later. ;-;

BF3 is, and always has been absolutely terrible. However, is Halo 2 Vista's online community still active? I'd love to nostalgia some.

You know you could do a fresh OS install, along with Halo 2 and use Windows's built in imaging capabilities to make a full backup of the fresh install. You could be backup and running in less than 30min without the need to re-install everything.

If you're using something older than Win7, here's a free imaging/cloning application:

I'm using Windows 7, until the Consumer Preview comes out. Though still I shouldn't have to do that.

God, I miss my Halo 2 days, even though it was on the 360, I had much fun on Halo Nights pointing my gun at the sky and wondering how the hell do I aim the controller.

I seriously feel like trying to get a LAN party together now. :(

BF3 is the must own PC fps of 2011 and probably 2012.

It is far from terrible.

It's just not Halo 2. (Not that it tries, or wants, to be.)

This is like one of the best game ever.

Amazing campaign, Exellent multiplayer (23 MAPS!), Achievements, active online community and all that stuff. Not so long ago I beat the entire campaign at Normal difficulty. Haven't die 1 time against tartarus (last boss).

If you can't afford it there are some websites that are giving away free keys, that's how I got my copy. Enjoy!

I was actually playing Halo 2 on the PC this morning. Almost done with the campaign actually. I've played Halo for a decade and I must say how addicting the series is. :)

Get the copy. Play it, live it, love it. Play it online with others, which I hope you've gotten a Xbox 360 Controller for Windows since that makes it even funner to play! :D
