These technological advances offer exciting new opportunities for engaging children in exergaming. However, the basic principles of game design still need to be elucidated and thoroughly tested for diet and PA change among children, and then systematically integrated into new G4H. In summary, G4H have demonstrated some ability to contribute to pediatric obesity prevention and treatment. Many of us believe that the contribution can be substantial because of the broad reach of, and the great attraction to, video games among children.
Funding to conduct the necessary research to enhance this effectiveness must become a national priority to find ways to engage children in a fun, but effective, way in what might otherwise be unpleasant activities.

With survivors scattered and civilization in ruins, time is running out for Delta Squad in the spectacular conclusion to one of the most celebrated sagas in video games. After spending decades in cryogenic sleep, the crew of the Spirit of Fire wake to find themselves on a Forerunner installation known as the Ark. But they are not alone. Science-fiction shooter video game that juxtaposes small vs. Set years before the events of the previous "Gear of War" trilogy, the story centers on Kilo Squad, a troop of soldiers led by Damon Baird as they attempt to save the besieged city of Halvo Bay from a terrifying new enemy.
The war with the Covenant forces is still not going well, despite the destruction of an entire fleet at Halo, but the Master Chief needs a refit. Armed with the Mjolnir Armor Mark VI, he is on his way to a decorations ceremony with the thought-to-be-dead Sergeant Johnson, when Covenant forces emerge from the Slipstream into Earth space.
But something is wrong: the fleet is much smaller than the one used to destroy Reach, humanity's former frontline stronghold. The Master Chief and Cortana, along with Commander Miranda Keyes and the crew of In Amber Clad, must fight off the Covenant and protect Earth, a battle that will take them across the galaxy to a new planet, which is disturbingly familiar Meanwhile, the Prophets, leaders of the Covenant, are not pleased with the Elite Commander that allowed the Master Chief to destroy Halo, and he is branded a heretic Written by Anonymous.
Halo was a hugely original, unique game that offered an unprecedented method of playability to the gamer. Halo 2 expands in every way; graphics, narrative, character, accessories. HALO 2 reeks of quality; nice fine touches of witty, purposeful additions to appeal to the hardcore, loyal players of the original; rock music used in the BUNGIE opener; Johnson and Chief at the awards ceremony; Captain Keyes daughter's introduction; the return of Blood Gulch in the multiplayer. Hell; this is so far the best sequel to a game ever. Halo 2 is a sweeping; hugely epic adrenaline shot straight to the heart, with occasional cinematic breaks directed by the legendary Joseph Staten; of course the real battle begins when you clock the game on easy, normal and hard; and you find your way barely breathing through LEGENDARY mode.
I can say that; as i have completed the game, it finishes comparably to the Matrix 2; you know there's going to be a third and it ends rather abruptly which is one of my main gripes; damn the excitement, this is not halo 2 but halo vanilla. A perfect consumer product that diversifies but never quite fulfills expectations as to the original.
I would expect Halo 3 to ship in no more than 3 years time; rounding up the story with a thrilling climax; the end of a trilogy, the best FPS trilogy created by man You owe your forty quid, your twenty hours time and infinite fun to BUNGIE; slaving away under fluorescent bulbs to perfect their craft!
