It's Official: Halo 2 on the PC Sucks!
If you own a Gaming PC, or you're about to buy a high end Blackbird - don't waste your money on Halo 2 for the PC. This is easily the worst use of high performance hardware that I've seen in years (no offense Microsoft - but you should know better!).
Microsoft/Bungee, please don't do direct ports from the XBOX to the PC unless you improve the graphics and resolution! The experience that Halo 2 delivers is terrible, and you know damn well a PC can spit out graphics 100 times better than an XBOX 360 can.
This is like the worst example of Games for Windows - and certainly among the least compelling reason to buy a Windows Live Gold account.
I just wasted 30 minutes of my life installing this thing, now I have to clean it up. Friggin Half Life 2 is a thousand times better than this game and it's old!
Ugh.. what a disappointment.
