5.0 out of 5 stars Halo 2 Better or Worse then Halo, December 9, 2004
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Halo 2 - Xbox (Video Game)
As many people throughout the United States waited for halo 2 to come out on release, well it came and it rocked the gaming industry like no other game has done before. Halo 2 is the most anticipated game of the year. It has many great features in single player, multiplayer and in online game play.

Halo 2's single player game play is awesome; in the single player campaign mode you switch back and forth between the master chief and the heretic elite also known as the arbiter. The weapons in the campaign mode are much better then in halo. In halo you had the sniper rifle and the pistol with the zoom in choice, as in Halo 2 you have the battle rifle, the sniper rifle and now some of the alien weapons have the zoom capability. A new feature in Halo 2 is that the marines can drive warthogs and ghosts. What's bad with that is that they can't drive well at all, but you could always put a bullet in their head to stop them from driving off with out you. Another cool thing about the weapons is that you can swap them out with the marines. Say you're low on ammo, exchange your weapon with a marine and take theirs from them.

Moving on to the multiplayer mode of Halo 2 Which is the best part of the multiplayer is that blood gulch is back with a whole new look to it, one new thing is that it has banshees and more then one vehicle on the screen at all times. If an enemy hopes in a banshee run to the middle of the field and the rocket launcher and shoot his ass down out of the sky unless he gets close enough to you jump on it and kick him out and take the damn thing, either way is fun. Another thing to look for in Halo 2 is no fall damage and they also took away the health meter so now its just the energy shield, so it doesn't take that long of time to kill your enemy. The biggest plus of the multiplayer mode is that when in battle you always know where your allies are on the map, and if they get killed or are in a battle with one of the enemies on the other team.

Last but not least another awesome thing about Halo 2 is you can play online with Xbox live. When playing on Xbox live you can use your communicator to talk to you teammates of to the dude you just killed, but it's only when you're standing near them. In Xbox live and in the multiplayer mode the game allows you more options on which team you want to be on instead of just blue and red. Xbox live allows you to get more skill and allows you to fight other people instead of just your normal friends, it gives you the chance to expand your abilities without having to leave your house.

Halo 2 has turned out to be one of the most exciting action packed games ever to be made. The best things about it, is that you can play with your friends at your house or through Xbox live if you need to save gas. Halo 2 is definitely a plus up from Halo even though the ending is sort of bad, but it allows you wait and see what Bungie Studios will do in Halo 3 and whether or not if they'll bring back the sniping pistol from Halo.
