Really, going back to Halo 2 recently, it doesn't hold up that well. There have been better Halo games since then. People just have a lot of nostalgia for it because at the time Halo was the only big console FPS and it was one of the first console games with online multiplayer that a lot of poo people played. I have tons of nostalgia for Halo 2, but when I go back and play it, all of the guns are s*** and it's not as good as 3 or Reach.

Aww, I had an absolute blast with Halo 2, whether it came to campaign, co-operative campaign, split screen with friends or multiplayer. Just curious, who else were there when the Xbox's games' online capability were removed, and who else were playing Halo 2 at that time? (raises hand :D)

But I disagree with Halo 3 being inferior to 2. CE was great, but Halo 2 & 3 were equally fun (I could say Halo 2 was more enjoyable, but I admit that'd be mostly just nostalgia, honestly)
For me, the Halo that kinda got me out of the series was Reach. I just didn't like the multiplayer, at all. (I did like the campaign, forging, custom modes and especially Firefight, but the matchmaking experience itself never really caught me)
The stuff I do/post isn't 100% BS -VeghEsther

They are, but I can still play split screen.

IMO its the best mp game on a console of all time,it's fast paced,balanced,great maps some of the best ever,great weapons and just fun that takes some skill,its much better then 1 and 3 when it comes to mp and it had a cool SP campaign as well which makes it that much better,most people bought a OG xbox just for that game like me,I was all about PS2 back then but this game alone made me a non fanboy overnight.


This.

You can also change your character's colors. I chose pink and destroyed EVERYONE!

It's not pink, it's lightish red.

Nothing, people are just blinded by nostalgia.


And your blinded by your need to be a hater. I remember damn well why halo 2 is so good. It's been said over and over on every video game forum on the Internet, I'm not gonna waist my breath explaining it. Keep being a hater tho.


I bought an Xbox 360 just for Halo 3 ok ya i'm a hater....

Does the MCC have multi player for each Halo? I thought it was just the singleplayer campaigns for 1-3 and the multi player would be halo 4 only
