It is for Halo 2 Vista, only playable on Windows Vista (I think, anyway). Many (all?) games released for Vista will have Gamerscore points that will link with your Xbox Live account.

Are you absolutely sure it's only for vista? If so they are missing out, I was really looking forward to getting that game into my system and earning some achievements. They need to get on the ball and start adding achievements for older games, it would get a lot of people to buy them (sometimes after they've sold or lost their copy). And it would certainly make the people who still have the games a LOT happier.

I'm positive. You can't put your Xbox Halo 2 into your 360 and get achievements, it's only for the Windows Vista PC version.

the achievements are vista only. furthermore, they are rediculous achievements. none are really challenging. oooh....kill someone with a sniper or beam rifle.....look, i average about 25-30 kills a game, with at least half of them being sniper kills. stick an opponent?! wtf? ive stuck more people with a death nade than anything else. someone melees in for a BXR, and all you have to do is toss a sticky....boom. wheres the Killimanjaro achievement? the Overkill achievement?

im seriously disappointed in the list, and i hope to god, the game itself doesnt suck. its too bad i dont have a gaming rig, because id have all the achievements in about a day and a half.


and that would only be because id have to get used to using a KB and Mouse.

.... you guys are completely missing my point. these acheivements are no challenge whatsoever. there are two that might be a bit hard, but not really challenging.

also, the controller thing.....it doesnt matter to me. ill learn to play with a kb + mouse combo eventually, but it wont matter, because i refuse to use Vista untill AT LEAST sp1 gets released.

Vista: Pirate it and install it on a second partition, dual-boot with XP. Problem solved. I'm using it right now and I haven't had any problems (I've been using it since RC1 Beta) except only ONE compatibility issue with Alcohol 120.

Achievements: If you don't like them that much, make your own! Or pray to *insert proper deity here* that Halo 3's achievements are better.

I'll be playing when it comes out, but only if I lose interest in Warcraft 3, UT 2004, CS:S, WoW and Guitar Hero, but since that's not likely, I may wait until I build my new gaming rig this summer and get the game. Again.

I'm pretty sure it is aimed at PC gamers who haven't had the opportunity to beat the game to a pulp. If a PC-exclusive game was released on the 360, I'm pretty sure people wouldn't be complaining about the achievements being too easy.

I always assumed the average gamerscore chaser drooled at the chance for easy gamerscore, anyways.

if you can get achievements this, doesn't that mean you need to have an xbox live account to play it?

Yep. Vista Silver can play online in ranked matches, but can't gain online achievements. Kind of lopsided.

if u have a gold profile which about 99% of us do
You will be able to play halo 2 vista using your normal xbox live account and get that 1000 gamerscore added to you xbox live gamerscore

windows live and xbox live are now cross platform
