    Man this game is brilliant. They have sorted out the wait times for games, go straight in now. The implementation of the buddy option is brilliant. Graphics are brilliant, no lag with 16 players even if they are in the US. As far as FPS go on consoles this is the pinacle thus far in my opinion.

    I love the ranking in matchmaker so you play with similar ranked players. Makes the game much more even and more enjoyable for all concerned (Unlike Rainbow 6 Slaughter fest)

    The game is just fantastic. Had some absolutely crazy games tonight.

    Its a life killer though just been on it for 4 hours straight :rolleyes:

    My biggest problem with Halo 2 is that unfortunately the rest of my life gets in the way.

    Yes it is brilliant.

    What's this buddy thing of which you speak?

    My main problem is trying to juggle Halo2, F.M. 2005 and P.E.S. 4.

    Nightmare.

    PES4 turned up this morning :thumbsup: I want to like this game as eveyone on here seems to be playing it and think highly of it, will try and get into it this weekend. I am more of a Fifa man so its going to be hard.

    By buddy I mean friend option, I think its been really well implemented in Halo 2 I reckon better than on any other live game so far.

    That and the way the friends option has been implemented in general. Much better than I have seen in previous live games.

    Halo 2 is superb online - very well implemented. PES is my all time fave game though and whilst there are still a few bugs with the online bit (some lag, commentary repeat, no penalty for quitters etc.) it's everything i've ever wanted from a video game.

    For me PES4 will get more play than Halo2 - but that's not to say I don't love Halo 2, they are both awesome games!

    Just think...soon we will have Forza Motorsport as well!!

    That will be :

    Halo 2 - Best online shooter
    PES4 - Best footie game
    Forza - Best racer

    all on Xbox live!

    :clap:

    Superb game on and offline.
    It's nice to see a lot of thought has gone into the online setup.
    As mentioned earlier the matchmaking option is a great idea.
    Not getting enough time to play with as many as I'd like from my friends list at the moment, from several friends on in a night to twenty plus at times.
    Totally addictive. :)

    the sheer variety of the games is fantastic, you can fly / drive / sneak around - snipe / rocket / shotgun to the head your opponents, the interactive scenery, it is fantastic.

    on tuesday we met some lovely american dweebs who said we were cheating because we mashed them on capture the flag, due to the game selection we ended up playing them again a few games later - great atmosphere. :clap: :clap: :smashin:
