Players will wield dual weapons, board opponents' vehicles, and in multiplayer mode you can even switch sides and take the role of a Covenant Elite.

Working in concert with Xbox Live to redefine broadband gameplay, "Halo 2" delivers superior online multiplayer action. Whether joining your clan on a new multiplayer map, customizing the look of your armor, or checking player stats in-game and on Bungie.net , "Halo 2" will bring "Halo's" unique social experience to a higher level with Xbox Live .

Released in November 2001, "Halo: Combat Evolved" became recognized as one of the greatest achievements in video game entertainment. To date, "Halo" has sold more than 4 million copies worldwide and continues to be a top-selling title.
