"System Requirements"

Since they're not listed on this page, here are the sys reqs as stated on the box:

OS: Vista Processor: 2 GHz RAM: 1 GB HD: 7 GB Video: GF 6100 or Radeon X700

Running on a 2.33 C2D with 2 GB and a 256 MB X1600, it's not the smoothest but it's playable. I haven't played far enough to rate the game yet :)

"Halo2 no go on Windows 7"

I tried to run Halo 2 on Windows 7 After 3 hours of YouTube on how to get it running including downloading all the patches I finally found this link-http://www.mi­crosoft.com/win­dows/compatibi­lity/windows-7/en-us/Search.aspx-l=en-us&type=Softwa­re&s=Halo&os=32-bit- which is where Microsoft finally admits H2 is non-compatible- many suggestions are written by Microsoft start suggesting otherwise ----- be warned

"Had enough of the Xbox!"
5 stars"

Halo 2 vista is your ticket away from the console and right onto the seat of your comfy computer chair. This version is good for mapping as its supports custom maps and mods. Plus you got better graphics than the xbox one as it is on an endless graphical rig (your computer).

"No more Online Play"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

As of February 15th 2013, there will be no further official online support from 343 Industries.

"To switch gears ever so slightly, we’re sad to report that the service end-date for Halo 2 PC Multiplayer will be February 15, 2013. We’ve been monitoring the population for months, and it’s been peaking consistently at approximately 20 players or less. Those that own this game can continue to enjoy Multiplayer over LAN after that date; however our network services will be turned off at that time. We love you, Halo 2 PC, and you will live forever in our hearts.

"Great to bring me back!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Personally the most fun to play Halo of the series.

Seeing this for the price that it was on here, I decided since I haven't actually ever owned this game but it was one of my favorite games of my childhood. To anyone who has played any of the Halo games but not this one, it is a must if you enjoyed any of the others. Upon it's release after Halo 1, it brought new fresh components such as dual wielding into the Halo universe, as well as fast paced action and the continuation of one of the greatest video game stories of all time. A must for futuristic shooter fanatics!

Do you love Halo? Do you own Halo 2?

One of the best games on the original Xbox has made its way to PC. With better graphics and Xbox Live Achievements I cant think of any reason not to own this gaming classic.

Stop thinking about it. Just do it.
