Xbox is the best platform for shooters this generation thanks to amazing graphical power and a great controller. Both first and third-person shooters shine on Xbox and these are the best of the best. Halo 2 isn't the huge step forward a lot of people had hoped for, but it is still one of the best games on Xbox. The Halo series controls and plays better than any other console FPS ever, so even if the single player story wasn't so satisfying you can't deny that the expierience was smooth and fun to play. The real attraction of Halo 2 is the excellent off and online multiplayer options. This is the game that all Xbox Live games and FPS are judged against from here on.
