Man I really like Halo. How's it playing on your Windows 7 x64-bit? Did you have to do tweaks to get it to run? Halo 2 won't run under 7 for some reason, at least for me. Haven't tried Halo though.

Thanks

I'm telling you if you can look past the game play it's a good game with a great story. Once I got used to the style of play I loved it.

Enjoy.
Didn't have to tweak it at all to get it to run properly (surprisingly enough). If I get some free time I will install Halo 2 and let you know if that works.
UPDATE:
Portal 2 is awesome! Finally got my hands on it and it runs great on my laptop. Just for kicks I tried installing Halo 2 and it installed successfully and runs very smooth.

Yeah Portal 2 is a good game, it's just not a $50 game. I was lucky to catch a 29.99 sale for it at Gamestop.

Anyway how'd you get Halo 2 to install? I keep getting a GFWL error when I try to run it.

Yeah I was happy to find it for $40 at target, I love the snarky humour, it makes the game. As for Halo 2 I just explored the disc and ran setup.exe (or whatever the setup program was called, I don't recall offhand) it installed just like anything else.

So it installed but does it start? I can install it but it won't start for me. I get a Games For Windows Live (GFWL) error - Halo 2 will not install on Windows 7

I have the latest version of GFWL, but even uninstalling it and installing the old version didn't solve the problem.

Yeah it runs fine. Windows Live hangs out at the top of the screen like it did in Vista, prompts you to login as soon as you fire up the game.

Well I'm glad you got it to work cause the people (including me) in the link I posted couldn't, but that was a while ago so something may have changed.

And just to be sure - we are talking about this Halo 2

Yes that Halo 2 the one that originally came out for Vista that really doesn't hold a candle to the first Halo. I was as shocked as any when it installed and ran. I don't think I have read anyone else being able to, just got lucky I suppose.

Did you have Games For Windows Live installed before installing Halo 2?

And, well I have to ask, is this a hacked game?
