Which trailer, and how so?

The one where Cortana tells Earth that reinforcemnts are on the spoke. She means Master Cheif, and when they show up Earth is already being attacked.

I need to find smaller pictures for my profile.

I think its alright... not as great as what people were expecting in some aspects, but thats rumors for you.

The new graphics are stunning, and the customizing and options for multiplayer are definately a plus.  However, I think they took the skill out of it with the dual wielding now, all I see now is who ever can spray faster wins.  In the first game, there were a lot more combos and such you could do to kill off an enemy.

The clubs and nades don't do all that much anymore, which I see as a disappointment.  I thought the point of Halo 2 was covenant invading earth?  Not sure what happened there.

Playing as the Arbitor is alright, but the levels get really dark at times which kinda kills the fun aspect because you can't even see where you're going.  MC's flashlight fizzes out after a few seconds unless absolutely needed instead of having the recharging battery for it, which I thought was annoying.

The multiplayer maps are confusing, some have random pits that seem to welcome my presence all too often.  My favorite map I think is Zanzibar.  That one seems to take the most strategy and teamwork.

Halo 2 is definetyly not finished there will be levels to download there might be an ATV in the game, ever hear of easter eggs, your stupid for video games if you don't know what an easter egg is halo had tons. Plus the ATV could be a download. I think the game was worth the money, I did beat it in two days on easy so what it's on easy it's supposed to be easy. Don't just follow roads second level i was hopping the buildings makeing my own ways. I loved playing as an elite cause it did give it another story and see it from the covenets eyes and you would gets the story even better if you read the books expessily halo the flood because it puts more into the story so you get halo two like why that Elite getting punished at the start in the book he's always doing covert operations to get the mc but fails and lets him destroy the ring so on and so on.

I like how it is a lot harder. I did beat it on easy just to see how the game was done. I'll possibly play missions later on, I just didnt expect to have to go to another ring. Whats the point? You blew one up, that said it could destory the galaxy or whatever, why need like 7 of them? I think the first one was made for playing, now its made to milk off of. The multiplayer is easily the best aspect of the game. Also, I didnt camp out in a store to get it, I just went to best buy the day it came out, after school, and there were like hundreds of copies, I had no problem getting a copy. And there is no earth levels remaining once you leave earth in the 3rd level.

/\ Me too. But I think that's all they do. My AI teamates were driving a warthoh once and they ran into a box with an elite behind it. That's pretty good enviromental usage if you ask me.

Also, i did see the story as a let down. Also, that trailer that everybody saw: It doesn't happen like that at all.

Whites Return,

If you are linking two Xboxes together, you will need a Crossover CAT-5 Ethernet cable. Otherwise, you can use a standard patch variety.

omg. the only reason ppl beat it in a day is because theyre to

this, since your of course always right, i wanna know if you can
use any CAT-5 Ethernet Cable to System Link



I agree. The only way you should be able to say, "I've beaten
the game" is when youve beaten it on Legendary. Everyone
sais its to easy because there playing it on **edited**ing easy. Try
legendary people.

To sum it up, I want to join a game on Ascension, Assault mode with Brute Shots only. How do I do that?



Try hosting your own game?!?!!

I tried, "Custom Game" it's called. But the only people that can join are clan members or friends.

And, if you read my post thoroughly, it said "how do I host a game and have anyone join?"

So, what kind of an answer is "Try hosting your own game?!?!!"

I've only played the first three levels and I agree with you already. The storyline is boring, I just can't get into it!

The mulitplayer and online modes are awesome as hell! Its hands down the best game ever for this reason! Just consider the campaign mode as training for multiplayer, that's what I do.
