without doubt one of the most disappointing releases in last few years... the game looks pretty bad compared to other new games out there today (the excuse that it's an xbox game isn't worth anything to me, they've had YEARS to improve things), oh and you need one hell of a pc to run it fluiently. Nah, it's just another crappy conversion like Splinter Cell. I'd much rather spend my money on Max Payne 2, Call of Duty or a couple of nice dvd's..

Seriously, don't consider playing this game if you have anything less than a 2 GHz cpu and a beefy graphics card. It's insane...

Cool. I'm not much of a gamer so, it will be nice to finally see what everyone is so crazy about.

He did? I thought he was doing animation for Halo 2, not the original...

Halo PC is some hefty stuff. It does not run well on my comp, which while not the greatest gamer, is more than sufficient for everything else.
This makes me scared that I might not be able to play HL2

halo demo.........PSYCH!?!

Here I was thinking I could run the demo, and not to mention that my pc was top notch, kept telling me otherwise. Ill just stick with halo on x-box, I dont think I need an upgrade there.
dont consider the game unless you have the latest of the latest 2ghz cpu, 512+ ram and one hell of a graphics card.:thumbsdow

My computer ran the demo just fine (Athlon XP 2700, 1 gig ram, All-in-Wonder 9700 Pro). I liked it overall, but the vehicle control seems awkward with a mouse. I'll probably end up purchasing this one, though.

The vehicle control isn't too bad once you get used to it, but I would have preferred basic keyboard controls. A lot of the time you can get stuck because the vehicle has decided to turn the wrong way in order to back up, etc. Not fun when you're holding the enemy flag and trying to get your damn ghost to back out of the enemy base.

Do you mean me?? Take it personal??

Oh heck no!! Not at all bud. I doubt that Bent takes it personal either. We all have our opinion about games that we like and don't like.
