    Well, I was at Best Buy the other day and was checking out Halo/2 and I have to say I'm pretty tempted... but I'm not sure which one to go for. I've read some reviews, just curious to know what people around these parts think... and why. So help me decide, Halo or Halo 2!

    I feel Halo 2 is the better game. Halo, while a great game, had several large problems. The biggest being the constant repeating of the EXACT same room during a particularly long sequence.

    The problem is that Halo2 is a true sequel to Halo. If you havent played Halo you might be a bit lost on some of the key plot points.

    I am gonna assume you don't have a 360 as your asking about Halo 1 and 2. Problem is if you get 1 and or 2, your probably going to be more temped for 3. Halo 1 does have more story, while the 2nd was made more for its online setup.

    i still dont give a crap about either...but

    i still remember when it was Halo this, Halo that, you gotta get Halo, Halo's the shit...blah blah blah, every freakin' day

    then Halo 2 came out....and it was that way for about a few weeks....then you hear it once in a while (thank goodness).

    so it looks like Halo 2 didn't live up to the hype that was Halo....and wasn't as popular i guess cause i still hear more about Halo than Halo 2. And i see more used Halo 2 games than Halo...

    and yeah, i think Halo was more for the single player was Halo 2 was made for online multi-player (and it looks as though Halo 3 is that way too).

    So if you like single player, go with Halo...if you like online multi-player, go with Halo 2.

    If you have Xbox Live get Halo 2.

    I still see a lot of people on my friends list playing it.

    Halo 1 for MP, Halo 2 for Single Player and MP if you can get a good group thats focused on weapon control, if you're on the opposite team team then it doesn't end up being much fun.

    If you can have a Blockbuster that sells used games they sell H1 for $6.99 or see if you can find the Halo Triple Pack for a decent price.

    Get both. Both have awesome campaigns (although Halo 1's campaign was better) and the MP aspect of both games is great. Of course Xbox live and Halo 2 are a fun combo and have entertained me for thousands of games.

    For the campaign, I enjoyed both more or less equally. For multiplayer, I found the weapon physics and level design of the first to be demonstrably superior.

    Halo was a better, more well rounded single player game story wise. Everything else Halo 2 did better, I think.

    I'm gonna have to agree. The campaign mode in Halo was much more enjoyable. However, Halo 2's multiplayer is far better. I think you just gotta get both.

    Halo 1 now, Halo 2 after.

    its like asking Star Wars or Empire Strikes Back... sure, Empire is better, but it doesn't make any damn sense unless you watch Star Wars.

    Halo 2's opening cinematic deal directly with the fall out of the conclusion of the first game. watch it and you'll spoil the ending of the first game before you play it.

    Halo 2's online multiplayer is great.. if you know how to play, which is best learned playing single player against the AI.

    no question -- get Halo, play it, and then go for Halo 2.

    I pick Halo. I haven't tried playing Halo 2 in the PC after reading the gamespot ratings. Though I would like to try Halo 2 if I have the chance to do so. ;-;
