Yes, If you watch the gamespot video review located here www.gamespot.com It gives a full review and says that it is just as good and in many ways better than PC games in the same vein. The gamplay is awesome, the story is kind of a let down (compared to the first one and where you thought it was going), but it's all about gameplay, right? Saying it is as good or better than PC games speaks volumes of why you should spend $149.99 to get the system. There are also plenty of other great games on the system to play besides Halo 2.

Is Gamestop going to have any offers during the midnight sale? The only thing I know is they are offering 20% off the guide... I hope there is more than that tonight...

You can request the soundtrack to Halo 2: Volume 1, at GamingFM.com, before everyone goes out tonight to pickup the game...:D

Alright, now for the big question. IS THIS GAME GOOD ENOUGH TO MAKE ME BUY AN XBOX? Much like some other guy/gal I find the lack of anime based RPG's on the Xbox disturbing. There are only 8-9 games that I consider to be worth my time. That said, I want to know whether or not Halo 2 is good enough to make me breakdown and buy the X-Machine. I'm also pretty sure this is a question Microsoft themselves have been asking about its potential consumers. So lads/lasses. Tell me.

If you have broadband go for it.

I got home tonight with a rather interesting message on the machine from the establishment where I reserved my Halo 2... apparently my "game is available, come pick it up whenever you want. We're here until 9"

So of course, given my relationship with horses given as gifts and their mouths, I went and picked it up. Had it in-hand by 7pm today. Sucks that I'll be asleep before those people courageous (see also: stupid) enough to stand outside of a GameStop to get the game by midnight.

Ouch that hurts.

I'm going at 10 to Gamecrazy since they're having a Halo tournament till 12 when the game is released.

Heh.. rude asses like you shouldn't complain, it'll make them slower.

Quite obvious that they couldn't meet demand -- common knowledge, really. I brought this up many times at the local EB, but it was shot down with "Oh, it's Microsoft -- they can handle it".

I wonder what's in the update.

I had no problem with lag, everyones "whining" seems to be about not being able to pick what map you can play in opti match. Supposively bungie did it as a balance issue.

I'm going to start whining about dual weilding and crouching soon.. if you do a melee attack while dual weilding, you lose your secondary weapon, and you cannot go from walking to crouching. You must fully stop, crouch, then proceed forward.

Yeah that doesn't really make sense to me. Since you hit people with the gun for a melee hit when you have one handed weapons you should be able to keep both. Go figure.

What was driving me nuts was the lag with 16 people. It ran flawlessly with 12 or less, but at 16 it chugged like a motherf*cker. I also really didn't like the bomb game, but the base capturing game was pretty cool - reminded me of Battlefield.

I haven't had a problem getting on Live or downloading the update at all.

It updates the game so you can play online (yes, I know it sounds ridiculous to have an update on day one, but it's true). Took me all of four seconds to update.
