5 Things That Made Halo 2 So Iconic

MP1st - "Many will argue that Halo 3 is the best multiplayer entry to date, but for me Halo 2 was, and still is, the crowning jewel in the franchise. At a time when online console gaming was lagging far behind PC gaming, Halo 2 came along and gave console gaming a huge shot of adrenaline and more importantly, legitimacy in the online gaming landscape."

Man, this article hit the nail on the head. I liked halo4's SP, but I can't for the life of me understand why they've departed so far away from halo2's formula.

Give me some well thought out asymetrical maps, get rid of the loadouts, and bring back the ranking system, and I'll happily jump back on board. But I feel like halo:reach went to the edge, and halo4 jumped of the cliff with the CODification of multiplayer. Shame on them.

AH yeah Halo 2. Such a brilliant game and one that finally proved that consoles can do online multiplayer, and do it well.

SOCOM came before Halo 2 and was a great online game. One I liked far more than any other after it.

That moment when I jumped from the bridge onto the massive metal crab/spider/robot (what ever it was) on Christmas day, was jaw dropping back on the OG Xbox.

I tried Halo 3 and Reach but never played any of the Halo's after that or even bothered to turn on an Xbox tbh. Not hating. I just don't really like many XB exclusives.

Maps.

They didn't give us 9 maps.

They gave us like 35 maps, and 95% of them are better than anything that came after that.

Jesus don't make me think about Halo 2 right now because I might cry.... :(

I really wish MS didn't shut down the original XBL servers or else I would be on Halo 2 right now. Good times, gooooood times.
