Halo 2 review
by Dima064

Completed as of writing this review: Base Game (Heroic).

The story of Halo continues in this very ambitious sequel of Halo. Brutal crunch of developers, who just wanted to create something revolutional in first-person shooter genre along with Half-Life 2, created something as big as this. Story-wise it's the best no doubt. However the presentation leaves a lot to be desired. It's definitely a product of it's time with how cutscenes are animated and how bleak some places look.
Gameplay-wise it's also complicated. As a player, who have beaten the game on Heroic and tried a little of Legendary I would suggest getting ready for some bs that will get to you, like enemies with 99.5% chance of killing you. I have a love-hate relationship with this game, just because I see the passion of developers, but also see major setbacks because of their crunch. I'd definitely recommend this, but just beware of difficulty spikes.
