Thats my verdict. Just went around a mates for some 3-way split-screen action. Started off with Halo 2. It lasted about three rounds. Then we went on to Ghost Recon 2, three-way co-op. That lasted about fithteen rounds and only ended due to my dinner time.

Halo 2 is a good game. There are some nice additions to it over the first Halo, however, the competition for best game is a lot fiercer now. Halo was the flagship game for Xbox which helped its success, but Halo 2 is merely a sequal, and theres alot of other FSPs out on XBox now.

In my opinion, GR2 is so much better. More realism fighting soldiers rather than aliens, a degree of soldier simulation but not too much that it looses its fun, some good basic squad command stuff, and a lot of big bangs. Graphically stunning, seriously cool surround sound, and plenty of game playability in sight. I've found my game of the year.

That would suggest that we are all mindless fops who lap up hype like a kitten with a bowl of milk, and are incapable of making our minds up on whether or not games are good or not.

The game is fantastic, end of story. They could call it 'Doctor Hemmorhoids terrible bum grapes' and it would still be awesome.

I do prefer Ghost Recon 2 over Halo 2, but I now prefer Call of Duty over Ghost Recon. Yup.

No, Halo 2 just happens to be the best console shooter ever. It's incredibly well crafted, handles perfectly, has a lot more variety in the rather short single player than the first one does and it has one of the most amazing multiplayer modes ever created.

That's why we all like it.
