Halo 2 PC system requirements

11 posts in this topic

I've heard from a friend that there will be a minimum Windows Experience Index value of 4.5 to run HALO 2 under Vista.

Does somebody of you know if this terrible info (my index is 4.3...) is right or not?

Thanks a lot

I guess he was right, looking at this minimum requirements gives you an idea of that 4.3 index thing, with these specs below probably sums it up to 4.3.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS

OS: Windows Vista?

Processor: 2 Ghz Pentium 4 class processor (or x64)

RAM: 1 GB

Hard Drive: 7 GB

Video Card: DX9 graphics card: WDDM driver, PS 2.0/32BPP, At least nVidia 6000 or ATI x700 or above

Online Multi-player: Internet connection for Games for Windows ? LIVE

Drive: DVD-ROM drive

and the official website of Halo 2 for PC http://www.microsoft.com/games/halo2/

i hope this helps you

That would possibly be for Recommended Specs, they haven't revealed that yet.

What's disappointing is that the game is not DirectX10 so there is no real reason - other than to force people to Vista, why Halo 2 for PC can't run on Windows XP. I bet there will be a patch of some sort to run Halo 2 on XP.

Nah its "Vista" only. They wouldnt alienate there market that much by having a 2+ year old game using DX10 only so only the very early adopters of the hardware can play it.

That said theyre probably alienating enough customers already making it Vista only.
