Halo 2, still alive

Halo 2, still alive

Halo 2 has been released way more than 2 years ago now, but is still one of the most played games on Xbox Live. So it's rather logical that MS keeps released "new" content for the game with these 2 maps named Desolation and Tombstone, to be released on April 17.

$4 for the maps , man , this game is almost 4 years old , 6 years if you count the debelopment time. those maps should be free.

This is only for 360 owners though right?

Cant believe M$ would do this to core Xbox owners.

Why wouldn't it be available to normal xbox owners? =/
Commented on 2007-03-30 19:39:02
well, there are trying to push sales and what better way to do it than this?


i was hoping for a major graphical improvement but it still looks beautiful considering its still using the same Halo 2 engine and not the full fledge Halo2/3 engine

No, both maps will be available for original XBox and 360 owners (when they originally announced new maps, that wasn't the case). The details are in the press release on the Bungie web site.

A couple of remakes for a three year old game that are going to cost? Think i'll pass.

good


this game has had me itching to play again. now i have a reason with these new maps. 4 bucks is nothing

It's more the principal of it than the cost, i think i'll spend my time on the Halo 3 beta than a couple of remaked maps for a three year old game which cost thanks.

OMG, Hang Em High is BACK!!!! Now all we need is a remake of Chillout!!
Commented on 2007-03-30 20:18:37
Hang 'Em High is back! Maybe now we can get some peace from all the whiners who wanted it in Halo 2.

And is it just me, or do some of the textures look, too hi-res for an Xbox game?

Edit: And these will be available for both Original Xbox and Xbox 360 gamers.

Well to be honest, Halo 2 doesnt stand out from some current next gen games

F**K my xboxlive subscription ran out last week, and im not subscribing till i get my xbox360 in May :(

Hang em High was the king of all maps. I really hope that Bungie does a remake of Hang em High for Halo3. It was so fun playing two vs two with the linked consoles. Man, talk about memories. My five year old son was a beast at the game.

ha ha yes.. shame it's not out when am in Easter Holidays.. i would play H2, so much...

oh well, have to wait for that weekend, so GH2 and new H2 maps

Wow hang em high looks terrible. They should have saved it for Halo 3
Commented on 2007-03-30 23:40:21
price?
4$???
Commented on 2007-03-30 23:43:46
Hang em High and the second map is Derelict!!!! ;]
Commented on 2007-03-31 00:52:33
I'll play them if they hurry up and release this before the Halo 3 beta. I just put Halo 2 in for the first time in two years (!) and man was that a wake up call. I am not red E.
Commented on 2007-03-31 00:58:47
Those maps look awesome....

HANG EM HIGH!

These pics look great. I can't believe it's xbox 1. What a great machine.
