Halo 2 is the sequel to the best-selling game for the Xbox console. Master Chief and Cortana return, as does the evil Covenant. This time, the main hero of the game – Master Chief – takes on the mission of saving the Earth, as the cradle of humanity is threatened by alien invasion. Bungie’s team made sure to present players with a lot of amazing plot twists.

The sequel introduces many features that were absent from the first Halo. Halo 2 for Xbox features completely new visuals and environment with many interesting locations. The game’s world is now more interactive than before, allowing for environmental destruction. This leads to an even higher degree of realism and opens new tactical options: windows, doors, and columns can be shattered completely, and enemy’s units are well aware of that, posing more threat than before. Foes in Halo 2 will do anything to get to the protagonist to end him once and for all. To defend himself, the hero can destroy sources of light to hide in shaded areas, and guerilla tactics are sometimes a better option than direct combat.

The game offers many types of weapons and vehicles, with our hero being able to hold two deadly toys at the same time. The hero can use e.g. Battle Rifle (a modified version of the typical rifle, with improved accuracy and range but reduced rate of fire), an SMG that spits out bullets with amazing speed, beam sniper rifles, and even an Energy Sword (deadly effective in melee).

In addition, the game offers multiplayer gameplay, assuring thrilling games with other players. Aside from the first Halo’s Oddball, Race, Slayer, CTF and, others, there are also other modes, developed solely with Xbox Live in mind. Halo 2 for Xbox supports the maximum of 16 players per game, providing detailed statistics, and a clan system.
