Halo 2 you know it you love it and it is finally here. after Halo's destruction the covanet are back better than ever, but the new thing added is online play which is anowsome. The offline multiplayer is also good. In the storyline you can now play as a covenant elite called the arbiter who was blamed for Halo's destruction. The co-op is also good. This is bound to be the best shooter ever. That is why I give Halo 2 a 10 out of 10.

The Best XBOX LIVE Game Out There!

Halo 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to 2001's Halo: Combat Evolved. After years of delays since its existence was known to the public in early 2002, Halo 2 finally hit the shelves on November 9, 2004, and boy, was it worth the wait!
The games' story has picked up where Combat Evolved left off, with the Master Chief and Sergeant Major Johnson being honored for their actions on Halo, while an Elite Covenant commander is being tried and sentenced for failing to successfully guard Halo. Instead of being executed, the Elite is given the position of Arbiter, a soldier who goes on suicide missions under the order of the Hierarchs, the three political and religious leaders of the Covenant. As you progress through the game, you will switch control between the Master Chief and the Arbiter.
Much of the games' basics remain unchanged. The only real changes to game play are that you can't be injured or killed by falling (unless you fall into a bottomless pit) and that there is no health bar. Once your shield recharges, your health recovers with it, which makes health packs no longer an issue.
XBOX LIVE is where you will probably be spending most of your time. Halo 2 probably has the best online play in any video game thus far. The action is fast, furious, and loads of fun! There is a match making system that pits you with players that are roughly the same skill level as you, which evens out the playing field and the game also features clan support.
The only bad thing I can really say about Halo 2 is that the campaign, while fun, is kind of short. But, again, if you have XBOX LIVE, that won't be a problem. If you have an XBOX you need to buy Halo 2. If you have XBOX LIVE, then there is absolutely no excuse for you not to get this one. This is quite possibly the best shooter out on a console. Pick this one up. You won't regret it!
