Halo 2 is my favorite fps of all time. Honestly, gamers may cry over sequelitis in games, but when developers make games as phenomenal as Halo 2, I could care less about the lack of original titles. The graphics push the Xbox to its limit with new Bloom lighting effects, its campaign is so varied that no level plays the same (The siege of New Mombasa is my favorite level in any fps game), and the multiplayer singlehandedly brought Xbox Live into the mainstream. You’ll even have the chance to switch playing from the stoic Master Chief to the honorable Elite Arbiter. There’s so much to say about this game, but all I really have to say is this: if you liked Halo 1 even a little bit, you will fall head over heels for Halo 2.
