As someone who has seen a pirated copy of Halo 2 Vista I am going to give you this advice. Do not download Halo 2 Vista at all and if you want it just buy it. Installing a pirated copy of Halo 2 Vista is very annoying due to Windows Live and even then is very different from Halo CE. Halo 2 lacks proper options in the video setting for pretty much everything. There is no solid way to play Halo 2 multiplayer easily without running through hoops. If you just want it for the campaign then I recommend playing it on a console. You could probably pick up a cheap copy at your local Gamestop or an equivalent store in your area. If it must be on PC and pirated well then just look for a torrent. Keep in mind that torrenting can land you in problems with the law pretty much anywhere.

Pirating isn't worth it. Especially on a 'broken' game like Halo 2 Vista. (I say broken because... well... it wasn't ever really ported the way it should have been.) The only reason I even got it was to play through the campaign. I don't have any consoles you see.
I bought it second-hand (MAKE SURE KEYS STILL WORK), and I was pretty satisfied to experience it at least once.

Well, Halo 2 (PC) price is starts at $10. Plus it goes along with a month of XBL (I simply redeemed the code 2 months ago so I question it's expiration). Why not simply get it? $10 is not much, but if you buy, at least you will be sure of efficient work.
