Pushing the Xbox hardware to its very limits, Halo 2 expands on everything that made the original game great, plus adds a wealth of technological and gameplay advances.

Every improvement in Halo 2 is designed to take gameplay to a new level -- and in the end, to tell a more compelling story.

Utilizing Xbox Live to redefine online play, Halo 2 delivers superior online multiplayer capabilities. Whether playing with a clan on a new multiplayer map, boarding a friend's Warthog, dogfighting in Banshees or checking player stats, Halo 2 brings the social experience to a higher level via Xbox Live.
