Product Overview:
The epic saga continues with "Halo 2," the much anticipated sequel to the highly successful and critically acclaimed game "Halo: Combat Evolved." In this sequel, the battle comes to Earth, and Master Chief, a genetically enhanced super soldier, is the only thing standing between the relentless alien Covenant and the destruction of all humankind.

Pushing the Xbox hardware to its very limits, "Halo 2" will expand on everything that made the original game great, plus add a wealth of technological and gameplay advances. Significantly improved graphics, enhanced AI, destructible and interactive environments, and an advanced real-time lighting engine are just a small part of "Halo 2's" evolution of design and technology. Every improvement in "Halo 2 is designed to take gameplay to a new level, and in the end, to tell a better story.

The closely guarded plotline of "Halo 2" will feature new vehicles, new weapons and new environments as well as new enemies, allies and surprises around every corner. 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.
