The sequel to developer Bungie's best-selling Xbox launch title returns for more first-person shooting action against a host of new alien races. Players once again assume the role of a genetically engineered soldier known as the Master Chief as he battles the remaining forces of the Covenant for control of the galaxy. The Master Chief will now be able to acquire new weapons from fallen enemies and explore the planetary landscapes from inside more than double the number of vehicles found in the original. In addition, Halo 2 features both a single-player campaign playable across multiple difficulty settings as well as online competition using the Xbox Live broadband service. No matter which mode is selected, players won't be alone in the conflict: allied forces will once again join in the battles and skirmishes to help repel enemy forces.
This "Collector's Edition" of Halo 2 comes packaged in a tin case, with an additional DVD disc containing several documentaries and short films about the making of the game, the creation of the Halo franchise, and the history of Bungie Software.

This game rocks, It is one of the best Multiplayer games out there, with an easy to operate system link, and a 4 player split screen. it also offers a Co-op to the Single player mission... This game also has a very addictive Single player game (for those who have no friends)lol There are a few frame rate issues to the game, slight lags, and sometimes the grahics and twig out, also the Multiplayer modes (besides Co-op) don't offer Bots, but this is not a big problem because of X-box live, 4 player split screen and the system link. The metal case to the Collector's edition is also pretty handy, its now a bit harder to hurt the case :) it also comes with a "the making of Halo 2" DVD. I don't like the fact that the DVD sits under the game CD and not in its own little plastic case,this might risk scrathing the DVD or game CD. at any rate This is a MUST OWN for the X-Box game systems!
Talk about a cliffhanger
Definitely better than the first Halo. The story actually had more depth to it. In the first Halo, I got lost in the storyline about halfway through. Thinking "what am I doing again?" In the second one, the story takes off from the get-go with the Arbiter's tale. Switching between the Arbiter and Master Chief actually made sense, giving the feel of "It's not just Earth's problem anymore". Vehicular combat is a bit better. The banshee, ghost, warthog, wraith and scorpion tank feel like they control easier. The spectre does suck, though. Multiplayer definitely got a serious facelift. Player insignias, Online multiplayer, more weapons, and the various types of matches make this an awesome game to have. Rumble Pit's cool for a free for all, and if you've got a few friends to play with, Team Slayer definitely rocks. I definitely recommend this game. Just word to the wise: if you get the map pack, buy it used. You're only going to use it once. And I think you can actually download the map packs from bungie directly once you're connected to Xbox Live. Overall the game's great. I just finished it off and am waiting for Halo 3 to arrive. Now that looks promising...
Hours of endless fun, high replay value, greatly recomended.
Halo 2 had one of the best online multiplayer platforms to date. It transformed the way most fps games are played today and paved the way for the following Halo games. The campaign was a nice continuation of Halo CE offering exotic worlds new weapons and enemies as well as a compelling story line to maintain interest for hours upon end. The graphics although were a bit ambitious for the time and the cut scenes are sluggish and often slower than the speech that accompanies them. The overall interactivity of the game keeps you constantly involved and stimulated. The player can pick up without having played Halo CE and be thrust strait into the story line and be able to understand the dialogue and the details of the story around them. 4 stars overall
game is very good as u all know. gray tin box is a nice upgrade, as well as extra dvd full of behind the scenes footage/making of halo 2. what sucks is u have to have dvd playback kit to watch the extras or put it into a dvd player. xbox decided not to let u watch dvds with the wired controller. that aside, the 480p graphics of halo 2 r very good, even in comparison to the 1080 graphics of games being released nowadays. game play is surprisingly interactive-u can jump onto tanks, take over enemy 'ghosts', and play on good and bad side of the 'force'. packaging is worth the extra money if u r a real collector and find it in good condition, makes 4 a nice set/keepsake. i've heard complaints of the game being too short, about 4 hours playtime 4 advanced 'shooters', but that doesn't affect the quality of it.
Great Shooter Game!
This is an example of an excellent game! I own an XBOX 360 and still play this original XBOX game online. The graphics were great (for the time before the XBOX 360). The storyline was good... a little disappointing but, that just means we get a Halo 3! Online used to be a blast. It's getting a little more aggravating everytime I'm on though. Between, bridgers, swearers, name callers, team killer, and yellers. If you can play without volume and hope you don't get stuck in a game with a "cheater" then the online play is a great (but, beware addicting) time.
