Halo II is a hit!

November 9, 2004

Lee County-- South Georgians stayed up late to jump into the newest video game Halo II.

Many Albany area stores like Rhino's opened at midnight for customers who demanded to be the first to own the new Microsoft video game. Rhino's sold about 100 Halo II's in the first hour.

Halo II is an X-Box game that can be hooked up to the Internet, and allows several people to play at the same time. "You can get four to up to sixteen people playing on it," said Rhino's Store Mgr. Terrence Range. "Everybody can get into the game, and run around chasing each other. Just having a good time with the game."

The majority of customers are between the ages of 15 and 25. Rated "M" for Mature, Halo II has blood, violence, and strong language and is recommended for players over 17 years of age. The game costs $49.99.
