Well, I've getting more and more into FPS games ever since that day I installed Battlefield 1942, it just made me want more. The thing is that, even while it's a fantastic LAN game, I want something that'll keep me busy for some time in single-player mode (don't get me wrong, I like it's single-player mode but I want something... else). And that's when I bumped into Halo.

There's been such a craze going on about it that I just can't believe it. I haven't played it yet, and maybe I should, but I've read some reviews that say that it isn't as good as the Xbox port (I'm talking about PC Halo). The thing is, should I get it? Will it be worth it? And I'd also like to ask you whether Halo 2 is better than the first, and if it is, is there any way to play it on Win XP?

And finally, if anyone has any recommendations on what to play (RPGs and FPS best) then please recommend. And to keep this thread living after the questions are answered, you can discuss Halo here . Thanks people.

Get Halo 2, it's more fluid in controls IMO. I think there was a PC version of it and it will definitely work on XP

If you're looking for an FPS with an amazing campaign mode and excellent replay value, Halo is that game. I'd get 1 and 2 first if you're going to get 3 so the story isn't confusing.

Halo 1 is better on PC than Xbox... Halo 2 is far too outdated, I think it actually plays better on XBox [weird]... Halo > Halo 2... Halo 3, I have no clue.

i personally like the first. the 2nd is awesome but some of th levels are too dark to see what the crap your doing. th first has alot of outside levels in the light. multiplayer is better on the 2nd though

Oh. Darn. I keep thinking of one then, never mind.

EDIT: Actually I remember there was an XP patch for it, but I have no idea where to get it.

From wiki:
Released the third week of June 2007, a program that enables Halo 2 to run on Windows XP was released by user abcba on the FileFront forum. The program consists entirely of legal code that implements any missing function Halo 2 needs to run on Windows XP. Using this program, the single player section of Halo 2 is playable on Windows XP.

I beat halo 3 in legendary like 3 hours ago. EPIC GAME.

A little disappointed at the new features. TOO EASY.

I'd recommend the halo series!
