Halo 2 remake on the way?

IGN: A new rumor suggests that 343 Industries is developing a Halo 2 Anniversary edition. According to the UK print edition of Official Xbox Magazine, "Following the success of remake Halo Anniversary, 343 Industries has now started development of Halo 2 Anniversary." [url=http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/07/09/is-a-halo-2-hd-remake-on-the-way]Link[/url] [url=http://youtu.be/kC2Eaw62jVU]Abridged video version[/url] Thoughts? Would you be happy with a remake? Or should Halo 2 only be remembered for how it was back in the day? I don't think an HD remake could ever make Halo 2 as it good it used to be. Playing online just ins't the same anymore.

  • I have mixed feelings about this. If pulled off correctly, then yes, I want one. It must have its own multiplayer. CEA had the Reach multiplayer, which was somewhat annoying, and Halo 2 was such an amazing game because it was tailored so well for multiplayer. It must be kept as such, lest the whole appeal of a remake be destroyed. I didn't play online a whole lot (not even on my own account), but system link parties were some of the best fun I've had in my life. Not to trash the new multiplayer elements (with loadouts and such, I actually love these additions), but they shouldn't be included. Keep the original Halo 2 balance and feel. Some glitches, like super jumps, should be kept. These were truly part of the entertainment experience. [Edited on 08.09.2012 1:23 AM PDT]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] joe campbell If there is ever a remake, I hope they leave the skulls exactly the same. I'd also like to see a LASO (Solo or co-op) achievement. It would probably be one of the toughest acheievemts to get on the Xbox 360. Getting achievements on Halo games has always been too easy, this would be a nice change. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] THElizzard01 Honestly, I think they could do something with a 2 remake. I mean, they could give us a menu for the skulls! Awesome![/quote][/quote] Oh, you bet! I definitely want the skulls the same. I miss when you had to actually challenge yourself to get them on Legendary, and they were also pretty hard to reach themselves. All games after 2 had the skulls not really out of the way and really easy to find. I want them exactly the same, but it would be insanely nice to have a menu for them.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] playkid It's not possible to brink back the same experience. Back then Halo 2 was new and uncharted, the experience will only be with us in memory. Even so, yes i do want it back, because Halo 2 is the one with the best multiplayer. Halo games have changed over time, taken new steps. Each time it adding more unnecessary complexity in form of gadgets, weapons etc. And the maps got progressively worse, and bigger. All my friends have lost interested in the Halo games, because it's just not the multiplayer experience it used to be: simple, but with depth. So yeah, i do want it back and i don't want the to change anything except maybe add some Hi-ress textures (like the perfect Dark remake). Online coop wouldn't hurt either of course, and i want that badly too. [/quote] So true friend, so true.

  • The ONLY thing they should "remake" is its compatibility with Xbox Live.

Halo 3 brought closure. ODST was good, and all, but wasn't necessary. I personally thought the Reach campaign was good, but again, unnecessary. Microsoft is greedy, and won't let go with something that makes them money. I'd rather let Halo die with dignity.

  • I want the elites to be reach style like in CEA:) Also, I don't like how the halo 1 multiplayer was taken out, I don't want that to happen to this. And I want to scan things again.

  • Hopefully no remake or remaster. Halo 2 is a terribad game for kids who can't aim. Worst in the series. Halo 2 should just be remembered for being overrated and outdated and dead. Like how it's final days were. They had what...200 online members/24 hours until microsoft handed out free live to play the game.

  • There is only one possible way mp can be brought back without 'splitting the fanbase', which is in itself a terrible excuse because there is no cohesion (unless you count the people that blindly move on with each game). Each Halo games gains it's own followers. I myself am loyal to CE first and foremost. If 'splitting the fanbase' is still being considered by 343 (major facepalm), then H2's mp would have to be offline and system link for it to be brought back. Hopefully that is the case (I'll take my chances with inaccurate graphics overlay) because I'd rather not put up with a copy mp that has limited options... My first experience of Headlong was on Anniversary. It was not pleasant. Mines? Who the heck places mines on maps? I can see that being in a custom map but really now, in the default map? I was also disappointed with Anniversary Timberland. CE and H2's mp deserves better than small scale or limited (didn't Headlong have some dynamic stuff?) maps or to be degraded by extra noise and clutter.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] playkid B is a poor excuse. Perfect Dark for N64 didn't have online at all, and yet the remake have smooth online gameplay on the 360. I think 343 studios where either lazy or under a too tight schedule. [/quote] Haha I agree but also think....what else does Rare have to do anymore? Have they done much besides rereleasing their back catalog on xbox? Banjo Nuts and bolts was fun..but besides running kinect projects for microsoft they really don't do too much these days so adding online mp for perfect dark probably gave them something to do...rumor is that they're working on a new shooter.....meh lol we'll see....

  • That sucks. Halo 2 is my favorite Halo game, it has the best campaign, best maps, best weapons, best everything.

  • I'd love it if they redid the campaign. Halo 2 was a fantastic story, the best in the series, but it just looked shoddy and rushed. But if you put that story with the amazing artwork and graphical ability of the Halo 4/Reach engine, it would be the prettiest and best told story of the entire series. I would love multiplayer, but my guess is that if the remake happens at all, they'll do it similarly to CEA, and just select a few of the most popular maps, and make them part of the Halo 4 (or whatever Halo game is out at the time) multiplayer experience.

  • One of the problems was that using the updated graphics put you at a disadvantage in CEA. Too much shrubbery and what not made scoping-in a pain. This is exhibited more on the Silent Cartographer and TaR. EDIT: Just peaked in on the whole FoV discussion. I'm going to say I have noticed some differences. Mostly because I can shoot enemies at a much longer range for some reason. Which I now believe to be a problem of the FoV. [Edited on 07.24.2012 4:31 PM PDT]

  • Halo was basically the reasonwhy everyone including me bought an xbox.. it was amazing on every level! Halo ce was just a classic so that goes on the top forme.... As for xboxlive... Halo2 topped everything ibelieve it was the bestgame ever made.... That gamewas basically my childhood I have so many memories from h2 ..... I met the coolest people that I stlll play with..... The thing ilovedthe mostthe competiveness... You couldn mke it past a 35 legitunless you were good... Iwas ah2 sniper legend 48 legit:p but the glitches also made that game just amazing the bouncing and everything.... Halo 3 is good but its like bloodshot central.... Halo reach is pretty bad in my opinion I cantplay it. Without some bk just usingsprint t runand beat me down twice....anyways I would love that343 would make a remake if they could make. This something good out of it ie... Using thesame engine and everything else... They could make a real disaster out of it though which would put shame upon that game

  • I enjoyed CEA. But the nostalgia worked because it was a remake of the first game and I guess it was "classic" (I use that term loosely because I don't really consider anything made after N64 "classic", I might even go so far as to say after the SNES isn't classic, but you get the point) enough to get a remake. But I really hope 343 doesn't start remaking every single Halo game that is ever produced. Where would it end? 10 years from now would we see a remake of Halo 4 for whatever Xbox system is out? Stop trying to pump money out of us Microsoft.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Sliding Ghost Anniversary is a conspiracy to make CE like Reach (at least with it's skulls).[/quote]the pistol definitely felt like 343i boosted its ROF did you guys like Anniversary sniper design? i thought it was bad, 343i should have stuck with the trilogy design IMO [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Sliding Ghost But when it comes to Earth esque features, they are horrible in newer graphics. Too much detail![/quote]on Silent Cartographer, remember that [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XO-ss9Dkgww#!t=1m33s]area[/url] with the group of jackals and an elite patrolling the woods, behind them is a path leading to the lock room. the [i]trace amounts[/i] of snow 343i decided to add looks [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnX93UdffDs#!t=2m33s]horrible[/url] alongside the sand and earth on that level (hard to see in the link but if you play the game you'll know what i mean) [Edited on 07.18.2012 12:52 AM PDT]
