Halo 2 clearly has the best soundtrack out of the series - and is my favourite of the lot. It's normally twice this price on Amazon, and I've not found it cheaper elsewhere!

It's also games for windows live, which means that unlike the xbox original, you can get achievements on it!

only works with windows vista ?

Works on Windows 7 as well. If am not mistaking there is a way to get it working on XP as well.

No - I bought it just before xmas and have it running on WIndows 7. There's various articles on the web described how to install it on Windows 7, including a good one on the Bungie website. It seems to help if you've never installed Windows Live before.

Can get extra achievements with this as can be linked to your 360 account.

Hot (_;)

If you get bored of it or get tired of killing the same 10 people that are left playing this online then CEX give a fivers cash, so well worth a punt

Good price as this is hard to find now.

excellent deal, the missus got me this in nov as part of my bday present, great game.

Craking deal smoldering hot

Ive heard it boots on windows 7 but the graphics look awful and the characters talk out of sync

Kinda putting me off even for a fiver

ta (_;)

Shame it hasn't aged gracefully like Half-Life 2, both were released in 2004 (despite the PC version not arriving til three years later).

I ran it fine on Windows 7, installs just as if you were running Vista. Ran better on my laptop too than when it had Vista on it.

You can also work it on XP with some jiggery-pokery, but you won't be able to sign into your gamertag and play online or earn achievements if you do.

Good game spoilt buy M-Soft's narrow minded marketing ploys......

Damn one hit kill jackal snipers on legendary. I have nightmares about this game.

Thanks OP, heat added.

This was released when Vista was still relatively new, and used as a high profile game to try and push/encourage people to make the switch from XP to Vista.

It works fine on Windows 7

Ordered, thanks

Argh, dammit, up to £10 - would have loved to get this one for that price!

Oh well, back on the wait list. Thanks anyway OP

Edit: Lies! Still there under other buy options from Amazon.co.uk. just the main price which has gone up!

Pretty good price considering the price elsewhere but at the same time it should be way lower than this by now.

Horrible generic shooter IMO

Voted hot for being a good deal

It isnt, you need to look next to new and order the top one, the main one says £10, but look underneath at the new copies.

Online doesnt work for Halo 2 anymore. They shut the matchmaking servers down.

they should get one. 60 quid second hand isnt much. Especially with the rate of inflation.

does this game need an xbox live gold account to play online?

*Originally* it did require Windows live gold membership. In one of their attempts to relaunch GfWL they removed the paid-for membership levels, so online play is now free on this. You still need Vista or Windows 7 to play it online.
