Product Description

Product Description

This limited edition sees the Halo 2 game and an exclusive bonus DVD housed in an exclusive metal box. The bonus disc includes: Behind the Scenes: The Making of Halo 2; Making the Game: six video featurettes; Visualizing the Story (concept art, early level design, from script to game, narrated storyboards, character tests); Bonus material (trailers from Halo 1 and 2, cut scenes, commentaries, Inside Bungie, A Bungie History, Before Halo, The Making of Halo 1, gameographies.

Halo 2, a sci-fi action/first-person shooter game, is a full sequel to the bestselling original and will continue the story of the Master Chief, a genetically enhanced super-soldier who is the only man that has successfully defied the Covenant, a coalition of alien races on a murderous march toward Earth.

Halo 2 surpasses its predecessor both in graphical beauty and combat intensity. The Master Chief and his marine allies return to battle the full complement of Covenant forces, as well as new enemies who have not yet revealed themselves. Halo 2 also expands the Master Chief's already substantial arsenal with powerful new weapons, many pried from the twitching claws of defeated enemies, as well as more than twice as many drivable vehicles for exploring vast landscapes or speeding into battle. In addition to its epic single-player campaign, Halo 2 will be playable online through Xbox Live.

Amazon.co.uk Review

The original Halo was one of that rare breed of games that was so compelling it persuaded millions of people to go out and buy a new console just to play it. Without Halo the Xbox would probably have failed instantly, which gives this long awaited sequel an incredible amount to live up to. So far relatively little has been seen of the game but what has been revealed seems to surpass the original with startling ease.

Widely regarded as the best first-person shoot-'em-up ever made for a home console, Halo 2 follows in its forebear's footsteps with a perfect blend of single and multiplayer action. The former offers far more variety than the first game as the battle is brought to Earth and the incredible advances in the game's AI, as well as just its graphics, become immediately obvious. There are now a lot more friendly troops to help you out and the evil Covenant invaders have become even more organised and intelligent.

In the all-important multiplayer mode, the most significant change is that you can now play the game online on Xbox Live against anyone in the world. This is the feature fans have been clamouring for and it's supplemented by new gameplay features such as the ability to steal vehicles, man fixed gun emplacements and play as the bad guys. If you don't yet own an Xbox, Halo 2 is all the reason you need to change that.—Harrison Dent

Well most of it has been said as above, a compulsive best played on Legendary alone, and Heroic with a friend. Don't play on Normal as it really is for newbies. Legendary upwards tests the most accomplished FPS players, forget Riddick it's not in the same league as this!!
An early Xmas present and I doubt in all honesty that there will ever be a better game released on the Xbox in it's current guise. Halo 3 on Xbox 2? ohh I think that is a certainity.
Extra DVD is certainly informative and well worth the extra money for all Halo fans, just don't play it until you have played through the game as it does have a spoiler effect to a degree.

So the sequel to the original Halo. Well what a sequel it is. This is by far the best first person shooter on the XBOX to date and I doubt it will be bettered until XBOX 2 is released although the release of Doom 3 may give it a run for its money.
The graphics, gameplay and storyline are just superb and what you know and love from the original Halo is still here only its double the fun this time around!
Multi-Player is also back with XBOX Live compatibility and this just awesome.
Please go out and buy this! You will not regret it!
Master Chief is well and truly back!

I bought this after 343 released the remastered version of the original Halo. I now own the entire Halo series (including the much lamented Halo Wars) at least until the Xbox One is released. Unfortunately that makes this the only Xbox Original (as opposed to 360) game in the collection and thus graphically pretty horrible, but I digress. As far as the seller's product is concerned this one is pretty excellent. The discs are fine and the booklets are perfect. Thumbs up.

Yes i know you problably think this is just another x-box fan boasting about halo2 well i am, i am a proud owner of the limited edition box set and i want to express to the world how good it is so if you have any doubts on this game DONT!. OK its not as good as the first but it is still very good and i will never forget this game. The 4 way split screen mode is amazing with 4 players battling it out for the winning title, so have no doubts BUY IT!!

I recently had the privilege of playing through roughly half way through the first player game, and can't wait for the 11 th to get my own copy of this wondeful game. Where does one start to describe this fantastic game ... differences to the old game are numerous, and will take me all day. Let's just say graphically your surroundings have more detail, and looks a bit more crisper than the first game. I won't spoil it but if you have been following the hype that is Halo 2, you should know that you can wield two weapons in each hand, the warthog now also has the rocket launcher as a weapon and a nice touch is the ability to walk up to one of your own soldiers and take his weapon in exchange of your own. Need a sniper rifle in a hurry, walk up to the guy with one and simply hit the x button and you exchange weapons. Once you got rid of your target, simply hand it back and off you go. The enemy has these wierd hover look out towers that you float up into on a beam of light ...Cool ! There are numerous things that are different to the old game that combined, makes this game easely the best game on any console in any category. Yes, this is still a straight forward go through area, kill everything in sight, and move on the to the next area and repeat. But ... adding so many added abilities, available options to complete a task just increases a hundred fold. You just feel that the people who made this game, did it with bucket loads of love and it shows in every arena that you play in.
One of the first thing that hits you is the massively impressive set pieces. As before, huge open areas are the norm, and here you'll find beautifully rendered buildings and rooms. Rooms and buildings on Halo, as in the first game, are almost identical in this game, it's just the scale seems to have been upped a bit.

Not the best Halo adventure or anywhere near my favourite, but you do get to play as an Elite, and some of the visuals are very impressive as the game engine is faster and smoother than Halo: Combat Evolved. The game also has a benchmark multiplayer mode and split-screen co-op, although the online servers are now defunct.

Where to start??
This is the best game in the history of gaming without a shadow of a doubt!! I was a diehard PS2 fan, until Halo converted me! Now with HALO 2 the PS2 is useless, anyone who does not own an XBOX buy one for this game!! Oh and get XBOX Live!
Now to the game! The campaign mode is.....a Holywood Blockbuster!! The story is phenomenal and moves at a pace to complement the gaming experience. Multiplayer on Live is the peak of online gaming and is reason enough to buy this game, what can I say without spoiling the story??
Oh yes, BUY THIS GAME!!!

if you have halo 2 already this is pretty much the same, it has a different manual case though and a hard case. It also includes a bonus dvd which t be honest isn't the most interesting video in the work but if you like halo you should get it.
