  • Bungie, you need to bring back the Halo 2 multiplayer. I mean it made Xbox Live what it is today. Your friends list system is what the Xbox Live's friends list is based off of now. Halo 2 was the perfect FPS. The only one I could stay up for 2 days straight on. Everyone loved Halo 2 and if you didn't you were a sports only fan. I still remember going over my friends house early in the morning and his mom made us breakfest and lunch as we played Halo 2 then went outside and acted like Spartans fighting Elites. Halo 2 is part of my life I got it when I was 9 and it was the only game I played. I beat Halo:CE, but that was only when I wasn't on Halo 2. So it sparked my gaming and many others. So you need to make it a new Arcade Game. Many people would love it, because no one missed it until it was gone.

  • My first Halo 2 game was with 2 of my buddies and I left hating Halo 2 and all it stood for, My friends made fun of me and called me a noob for weeks as I struggled to play it each evening after they had been already been playing for months. That was it, I went out and bought an XBOX, a copy of Halo 2 and a membership to LIVE. I spent the next 3 years playing every spare moment I had. The last time I played with those same buddies, was about a year after I purchased my bundle. We linked our XBOX consoles and played with 8 people, after about 6 games, everyone was tired of me rolling over them and all refused to play with me after that. Now don't get me wrong, online I was only an average player, but to beat the -blam- talkers down so bad that they quit was a sweet taste in my mouth. I will miss Halo 2 like a lost brother, it kept me up many sleepless nights and makes me compare every new shooter game with it. In my mind, no game will ever measure up.

  • I did not have a live account during the height of Halo 2's golden days, but I did have some amazing times with the campaign, and playing eight man juggernaut with friends. My highest rank was a six, because no one was ever on.

  • Once my day of Halo 2 had ended...I realized that my kills, assists and games played were all divisible by seven. Yay me! That probably counts for nothing, but I think it's cool.

  • I played it until I got three in early '09 (I didn't get a 360 until late '08, or I would have gotten it sooner.) Than I almost forgot about it. But I still had a few nostalgia sessions every couple of months. Played it the last day it was up. It actually turned out to be a few of the best games I had on Halo 2.

  • Favorite Halo 2 memory- we played a lot of multiplayer, mostly system link, in my apartment in college. But we never really played the campaign. So one day, my roommate and I decided we were going to get serious about the campaign. We picked up a 30-pack of Bud Light and started the campaign on Co-op Legendary. Well, needless to say, we made pretty good progress at first. A couple hours in, we were so completely hammered we couldn't even shoot straight anymore. We didn't end up finishing the campaign that day, but I sure have a lot of fond memories of Halo 2!

  • my favorite halo 2 memory. im sitting alone at a table during lunch at my school. some guys who i had never talked to before come sit down with me. one of them says "hey we heard you like halo?". "why yes i do" i said "but it sucks cause all i ever do is play by myself becasue i dont really have any friends to play with and i dont have xbox live yet." "really?" they said. "how about you come over to my house and play some halo2 with us then?". those guys are now my best friends those days hauling around my xbox, staying up late laughing, hunting glitches shooting eachother in the face are the best memories i have, if not for halo2 i may have never had them.

  • I tried to play halo2 on the 14th day, the "last" day, but Killtacular mappack, wouldn't let me download it. Everytime i waited the download to 99%, it poppedup the xboxguide with a message "File corrupt", restarted my interwebs, xbox, everything, it still said "File corrupt" at 99%, i even plugged my xbox classic and tried to play there, it still said "file corrupt" Thus, i never got to play halo2 on my current xboxlive account. And my old account, doesn't have any xbl gold goodness, password forgotten, and the account is registered on my brothers email. And he's currently in the army, and its nearly impossible to call him and ask his email and password "cus i wanted to play xbox". I feel sad.

  • I was introduced to Halo CE when a friend bought an Xbox, many years ago. I was told it involved "funny talking midgety ewok things" and zombies and the multiplayer was fantastic. From there, my love affair with the Halo fiction, and with Bungie was sealed. Countless hours were spent playing LAN in his basement, our two systems and a spare TV ravaging away. So when I heard a sequel was on the spoke, I was thrilled. I followed all the media. Caught the very few commercials with glee. (somehow missed out on Ilovebees) but as soon as cam-corder copies of the E3 demo made their way to the internet. I was floored. The cinematic quality and overall jump forward in appearance.... I was falling over myself with anticipation. I still remember, I was unable to pre-order but went at midnight to pick up a special edition copy of the game. However, sophomore year of high school demanded I wait until the next day to play it. I can't say I loved everything about it. It was the next logical step, but not much more. After Halo CE's apparent perfection. Halo 2, just seemed, lacking. It would be a very long time, before I found confirmation that the overwhelming sadness I felt for the game in contrast to it's potential was mirrored so closely by Bungie's experience making the game. Bungie really gave their soul to make this work, both in losing it's independence to Microsoft and in the amount that had to be sliced to make way for reality. All was not lost, gleams of sunshine from what the game's original intent had been poked through, and where it did. A lightly melancholy but uplifting moment occurred. Moments like leaving Cortana at that platform, hear Truth annunciate "Some said this day would never come...." over High Charity's PA system as you chased them, always a step behind. Truly this game was of a beautiful vision that was quashed by limitations. Multiplayer though, was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed it greatly. Hours were racked up on a slew of good maps and returning favorites. My friends and I clung to the mast of our sinking Halo CE, throwing LAN parties as often as possible, but I definitely enjoyed many a time on Halo 2's multiplayer. Live brought something unseen to console based gamers. In fact, it was this meeting of the gamer minds that really made the game for me. The ability for players from all over to communicate, play, and create was really what kept me coming back. From attempts at machinima, to exploring the outer reaches of maps thanks to a combination of sword/rockets. To, my personal favorite, the honesty-based game of zombies, the dynamics of which are closely paralleled, but in my opinion not quite matched by Halo 3's infection gametype. This creativity kept me coming back. It sounds like for Bungie's staff this was an obstacle that brought about growth, learning, realization of priorities and development of tools that allowed later games to be that much better. In parallel, I can remember cracking open that case on Nov 8th, 2004. Since then, I've graduated high school, am attending college in computer science and thanks to you folks at Bungie have selected a career path to become a video game developer..... hopefully ;-) So long Halo 2, Here's looking to the future, Charlie

  • I've been a follower of Bungie ever since I played Pathways Into Darkness, and especially since Marathon. Of course I'm an avid Halo fan... Halo 2 basically summed up my years of a high school student from November 7th of my Sophomore year until Halo 3 came out when I was at UNC. Because of that, it's literally impossible to think of just one memory. I just have years of time with Halo 2 being my go to game with my friends, who would stay up late with me, eat some pizza, and laugh hysterically at the crap we'd do in the game. I played Halo 2 on the day of its shutdown until 3 in the morning. When I walked into my Chinese class the day after, I humbly wrote on the whiteboard, "RIP Halo 2. November 7th 2005 - April 15th 2010". It's good to hear about Jason Jones, btw. Like I said, I've been a fan for a long time, so he's kind of a hero of mine. I hope his new project is awesome.
