Halo 2 Vista Review

So obviously it’s 2014 and supposedly Microsoft said that the servers would shut down in summer of 2013 for Halo 2 Vista.  I had the good fortune of being able to purchase the game, play online, and beat the campaign. Again… It does not run as good as I want on my PC. However, it’s still very fun to play. I found Easter Egg, Scarab Gun and blew up everything in my path. It was amazing to finally be able to use such a weapon.  Aside from that, I found multiplayer was difficult to do anything in. There were less than 50 players, and sometimes I couldn’t even connect to the damn server. I honestly really good at Halo, but Halo 2? I couldn’t beat the other players, they were always about 6 kills ahead of me. It’s usually the other way around, but that’s in Halo; Reach, Halo 3, and Halo 4. Anyway, the online experience was “meh” as in like above 5 out of 10. The game itself must be around 8 to 10.  A weird thing though is that the achievements were a little off. Complete the campaign on Normal Difficulty, worth 100g. There rest are 10, 20, 30, and 50 gamer score for any other in-game achievement. Other than that, the game is fun, multiplayer is a bit different, and I frankly can’t stop playing in the past with this great game.
