Halo 2 continues the story of the Master Chief, the genetically enhanced super-soldier who is the only human ever to successfully defy the Covenant-a coalition of alien races on a murderous march toward Earth. To the mysterious leaders of the Covenant, the human victory at the ancient ring structure known as Halo was an unacceptable failure. They will not fail again.

Halo 2 surpasses its predecessor in graphical beauty and combat intensity. "Halo 2 is a lot like Halo 1, only it's Halo 1 on fire, going 130 miles per hour through a hospital zone, being chased by helicopters and ninjas," explained Jason Jones, Bungie Studios head. "And the ninjas are all on fire, too." The Master Chief and his marine allies return to battle the full complement of Covenant forces, as well as as-of-yet-unrevealed foes. Halo 2 expands the Master Chief's already substantial arsenal with powerful new weapons, many pried from the twitching claws of his defeated enemies. There will also be many more drivable vehicles, giving players many more ways to speed into battle or explore the game's vast landscapes.

Halo 2 is powered by a completely new graphics engine designed specifically for the Xbox hardware. "Our code squeezes every drop of power out of the Xbox," said Chris Butcher, one of the sequel's engineering leads. "We're doing dynamic lighting and shadows, per-pixel everything, rendering gigantic, lush environments. The graphical features we're using are so advanced we don't even have buzzwords for them yet."

In addition to an epic single-player campaign, Halo 2 again makes use of the multiplayer split-screen System-Link feature and… Xbox™ Live.

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

yea smurf these guys must not know what a good game is when they see it..obviously you havn't realized that Halo was one of the very first games that came out for xbox and it is still going strong, it is one of the best games around and i don't think that these developers would slack off in making the sequel of it especially when they know that there is gonna be alot of hype around it...

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

haha morons, have your XBox and your crappy controls, lower screen resolution, fuzzy graphics, and have only a couple good games to play, and us on the PC will have all the opposite, fine by me

I hate to tell you but the NV35 with is only getting 22 FPS with everything completely maxed and I doubt you will be able to aford it when it comes out anyways. Just watch the movie faggit and watch what an Xbox can do. Xbox contoller buttons have 256 levels of sensitivity does your keyboard have that? So I doubt you have better controls. I would play halo on my Xbox then my pc any day. The xbox runs at higher resolution then your shitty computer is running right now if it wanted to. 1920X1800. And i guess you have not watched the Xbox Doom 3 footage it looks exactly the same. I'm glad that you will all be missing out on Fable the biggest RPG or all time.

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

Oh my god. What a day, Halo 2, HL 2, Doom III and Fable trailers. I dont think things can get much better than this, they all look amazing (although i thought the Doom III trailer was far too short, it needed to be Halo 2 size to intrigue people and then cut if off when they want more.....)

to the anonymous guy below me, you have no idea what you are talking about, first of all, when i played the alpha version of DOOM 3 on my GeForce 3, I was getting between 5-13 fps, so your facts for fps with say a FX 5900 or a 9700/9800 pro even are way off, it will get more fps than that. Also you do realize that your TV is the resolution that you play games with on XBox don't you? TV's resolution cannot go nearly as high as monitors. As for your statement about 256 levels of sensitivity hahahaha thats just hilarious, its amazing what you XBox junkies swallow up from microsoft. Have fun aiming in DOOM 3 with mini joysticks and thumb pads, i'm sure that will be a lot of fun.

f**king PC fanboys! OK - I think PC is better than XBox, but FFS don't be jealous that XBox got Halo first. I'm gonna get Halo for PC even though I have it on XBox cos it'll be online and have 2 extra weapons. I do believe that the XBox version is better cos I love split screen gaming - death match and co-op are great and your buddy is right next to you so you don't have to type "lol" all the time etc - not forgetting system link where 16 players can go head to head.Halo 2 is gonna be better than Doom3 - Doom3's just a single player only benchmarking game only used to show off ur PC. However I'm sure Doom3 will be a good game and shit scary all the same. (I know doom3 is on XBox too.)The best graphics I've seen in a game is on XBox - just look at DOA3 or DOAXBV! XBox can also run Doom3 and it really is'nt that low res! It's easily just as powerful as a 2GHz, 512 DDr ram, GF4 PC!Halo 2's gonna be on XBox Live - far more accessible than PC online gaming (I have it), and it's less laggy, I have broadband on PC too, and you don't have to type - you talk! Admittedley PC online gaming will always be best cos of all the titles on offer but XBox Live is bloody good. Sure, in about 3 years I'll get Halo 2 for PC also.So why don't some of you PC fanboy's shut up? Just because ur jealous and can't afford an XBox. In my opinion Halo's the best FPS ever made and I'm sure Halo 2 will carry the tradition - I've always prefered FPS's on PC's but now I'm beginning the change my mind! Halo 2 on XBox surely will make me change my mind :P

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

f**k off Yo Yo! (what sad name!) Ur talking our ur fat hairy ass! The XBox pad is almost as good as the mouse and keyboard! Yes - PC's are the best! But it's gameplay that matters! Who gives two f**ks about resolution and "frames per second". Halo looked good enough for a console game and it's the best shooter ever! Much better than HL or MOHAA or RTCW on PC! Believe me I have em all! No - I'm not an XBox fanboy hence I said I prefer PC for the amount of games and power on offer.Just don't be a social retard by talking about "fps" and shit. No one really cares! As long as the game looks good and plays well thats all ya want!As for TV's resolution - you don't really notice - the visual quality is good enough!So STFU "Yo Yo" you know f**k all and obviously have'nt played on XBox or are just jealous! Halo 2's gonna be the best game ever and on XBox first! And... I rekon the PC version of Halo will have to be very good to even be equal to the Xbox version!

That was f**king Awesomne, oh for those who do nothing but bag out the Xbox Graphics and Halo 2, well think about this. when was the last time any game like doom had a descent Storyline.. how bout like never huh! Halo had a great Storiline and good for a console graphics, now halo 2 is Building on both of those both the storyline and the graphics and it will keep me and a hell of alot of people buisy and thrilled for along time. it will be good on pc too but to be quet honest differences in Resolution usualy make little difference unless youre f**king the screen with youre eyes, sure it is good to know youve got better god knows I have a pc and like high frame rates and good graphics but hey, I couldnt give a shit realy, if it is better on pc then good ill just like it more but if they forsake gameplay for graphics then f**k all you morons who's opinions sculpted it that way.

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

first things first if someone can afford and run doom 3 on a computer im beting theyve spend more than $350 ausd on there pcs the thought of a console being better than a pc is laughable computers arnt game machines if they made a computer that u chuck in a game and it starts up no windows or anything and useing latest computer technology. it would mop the floor with a console reason y pcs dont they are made for word processing games are just an addon

Anonymous : Halo 1 is the best Shooter of all ? are you crazy ? What they have changed ? nothing..WHo are the best shooter, its who have made something in the univers of games... Like Half-life, Starcraft,MMORG, Mod,I think the best of all FPS is Half-life(maybe not the original) but the engin. How many years its release and how many people still play is engin ? More then Halo1. Halo1 is stuck in last position.

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

LOL! Go and buy some originality Cyrax! (Thats a mortal kmobat character!) And for a start you can't even spell! How old are you? 10? I bet you still piss the bed and shit ur nappy!I prefer PC to XBox and await Halo on PC patiently - my PC is a 2.5GHz, 756 RD ram, GF4. So I'll be able to run Halo all maxed up. Hopefully it'll be better than the XBox version.Half Life is bloody over rated, good for it's time but back then I felt alittle dissapointed with it, it was'nt really very revolutionary at all - gams like Blood 2 etc were just as good. As for it's engine? Its still used but only for mods like counter strike. Name any big name FPS that is using the HL engine? And don't say Gunman:Chronicles - that was an awful game.LOL! I laugh at ur spelling - most PC gamers are really more intelligent than console gamers but you spell like shit - "jalous - LOL!"And besides, you say "Six months on and Halo is the past" Don't be a f**k wit! Halo's the best FPS out and PC gamers are looking forward to it's release.You know f**k all you f**k wit - and actually play Halo to make a valid argument. Nobody said XBox was more powerful than PC or better, so read the f**king text moron! XBox control is a good attempt at a joypad although not as good as PC mouse'n keyboard. And why the hell are you talking about Starcraft? LMAO!You really should shut the f**k up, and go call ur "mom" to change ur shit smelling nappy!

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

The only thing I agree with (from Cyrax) is that PC is better graphically, altho, Microsoft did make a f**k of a good attempt for the Xbox to have good enough graphics.Its not the machine that counts...its the game...

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

from the looks of ingame graphics, halo 2 will kick any games ass to high heaven, for petes sake it is a beutifally crafted game and it deserves respect.listen to me...halo kicks ass, halo 2 will kick bigger ass!! and looks like it already is.

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

hmmmmmmmmm where to start....lets see your comparing contunaly upgradeable computers to console that are stuck with there graphic capabliity(i would love to be able to upgrade my ps2 to have as good as graphics as xbox) but for FPS pcs will always dominate .... most other games its either a tie or consloes win..... well pcs can cost more but uhhh they do a HELL of a lot more than a console can. and consoles are 4 ppl who only game... you might want to get a bigger life if all you do is game.. maybe a gf....btw... whoever said cyrax cant spell needs to shut up cuz they cant either.... kmobat?

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

FFS! Loads of crazy shit going on...Why the hell is it on most forums ppl always stray away from the discussion? This is about Halo 2, not about insulting each other or comparing PC specs, or moaning or boasting about their PC...for example "you can't spell" or "you smell or shit" or "PC is better than XBox" FFS - talk about HALO 2! DUH!Some ppl really need to STFU!Anyways - Halo 2 looks like a kick ass game, you can even get a quad bike and weild double pistols! And just look at the graphics! I really can't wait for this game - out of Doom 3 and Half Life 2 I prefer Halo 2 - the prospect of it is much more exciting!P.S. Cyrax should shut up and go and play on his Gamecube - I think he's clearly a GC fan in disguise cos he's insulting Halo 2!

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

No, the person taking the piss out of CyRaX should not shut up, he's clearly right! And I think he can spell...The guy who told him to shut up can't! He spells continualy "contunaly" LOL! So you should STFU! Bum f**ker!Anyways, the person below me is right - lets end this argument and talk about Halo 2!!!Halo 2 really is gonna kick ass! I really can't wait any longer...It's even playable on XBox Live! And has more weapons, vehicles and improved graphics etc!

You cannot compare a PC to a console. Different gaming mediums. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. PC's will always have superior graphics and sound and resolutions capabilities because of it's ability to upgrade the hardware to the latest technology. Consoles have the advantage of being easy to setup and play with little system crashes and problems. (closed architecture) Adventure games and beat em' ups excel on consoles. FPS and RTS excel on PC's. Gamepads can never compare to keyboard and mouse for FPS and RTS games. Microsoft should just release a keyboard mouse setup with the release of Halo2 or DOOM3. Doom3 and Halo will look superior on the PC because the resolution can go up to 1600x1200. And full scence anti-alaising and Ansiotropic filtering can be enabled to sharpen the graphics and take away all the jagged edges. If a game developer wants to take FULL advantage of a PC's hardware it will look miles and above the console counter part. But most developers don't. AND FRAME RATES PER SECOND DO MATTER! IT EFFECTS THE OVERALL FEEL, SPEED AND GAMEPLAY FOR THAT GIVEN TITLE. Because slowdown and clipping issues suck ass.And just one more point. Whatever directx9 features that are incorporated in DOOM3(which they will be) to enhance visual quality and special effects, will not be incorporated for the XBOX version.The GPU in the XBOX does not support directx9 features.But in all. Who gives a rats ass. As long as it plays good and looks good. Pick you foramt. There all good

*throws a scarf over his shoulder*...and thats the end of that arguement...not lets talk about Halo 2...yeah...*coughs and watches the tumbleweed fly past*Ah...anyone know if we can weild Covenant plasma swords in it?

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

There is no "Halo" "cheats," and I am so glad because it's what makes this game so genuine, because when someone says, "Dude, I beat Halo on legendary," (If that person is actually truthful) then you should be like "Holy shit dude, good job," because you know he reall beat the game. And I hope and pray that there will be no cheats that come out for Halo 2 because, Halo is a fukin hardcore game- itz tight. And to actually continue with that I think there SHOULD NOT be any cheats available for Halo 2. (Although I still use cheats for many other games :-p)HALO FUKIN KICKS AZZ!!!!

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

Halo is not THE best fps, but is on par with the best. not that i hate Halo, it rules! the only gripe(s) i have with Halo 1 is that multiplayer wasn't that fun- no bots. There weren't enough missions nor were there enough kickass weaponry. Even slight variations of weapons would've been cool.

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

Halo 2 is going to be thee best fps on console and on computer but think about it haw many people are going to have a computer that will give a graphical feature that the xbox will and have the same controller design. Scince Halo 2 comes out for xbox first everyone will have a copy for xbox before they buy one for their computer and thats where xbox is king.

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

since xbox has a HD, they should release a patch for halo so that xbox owners can benefit from the "benefits" that the pc version of halo has. after all, wasn't halo meant to be like a flagship title for xbox? not a beta test for pc?

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

f**k da xbox, you think youre missing out on games like doaXV then get some games from Illusion! [url removed] got a doaxv clone. They even have a game that simulates a stalker/rape situation where you chase girls at night, rape and kill them (game right below sexy beach 2!) sweeeeeet

Halo 2 Gameplay Footage

mmmm akimbo m16 type assault rifle, new warthog weapons... KICKASS VISUALS!!!!!I so wanna get halo 2btw link, if u want pr0n, then just look at ur screen (all on the net). the xbox doesnt need pr0n to survive
