Wow it was meant to dissapoint

To the massive crouds of those who have never read the books or just bought an xbox because their friends said that halo was a must have,you are incompetent.The story was magnificent, and the gameplay was extraordinary. How many times have you actually played through the game? So many new things come along and things you never noticed appear, like fighting situations that would never appear in halo1.
I wonder how many people saw how difficult it was to create a second version to the great thriller halo 1? The dvd shows some of the finer points of creating such a difficult piece to deliver.
Now, you people who have never read the books, and bought the xbox because of all the hype. What the hell do you think they are going to create? Bungie had very dedicated individuals throwing away countless hours for a game that IS better than halo 1, but only not as epic. Of course the game isn't halo 1. It is a continuation of what is happening, and if you ask me, it is one hell of a good one too.
Yes, halo was created for massive appeal on multiplayer, but it is so difficult to manage a game that all of the fools who play LAN parties with their friends would love on single player too. They thought, "OH, there's alot of multiplayer happiness from halo 1, so why not make multiplayer for halo 2 extraordinary for all of those bitches who bought the game without a second thought". Halo 1 was very good because of the numerous glitches and secrets that were discovered years after it came out. Tell me, would the game be as fun if you couldn't shoot that banshee of the ledge at the beginning, or jump back into the hybernation chamber in the first level? No, those glitches and weird mishaps created the game, and Bungie never thought twice about excluding glitches because no shit they are GLITCHES-game developers don't realize the potential their glitches had in games. Yes glitches that are fun but don't give you advantages ALL the time created halo 1.
The conclusion of the flame on all of those who hated the ending, or never even looked at the game twice (how fucking many times did it take before you liked halo 1? oh or did you like it because of the great fun it is to play co-op or multiplayer?)what the hell are you saying about this game? It is halo 2 !!! HALO...2!!!You need to Shut the fuck up and smell the roses you spoiled bastards, you sound like little kids.

tentacle beast

Is that beast with the tentacles the leader of the flood? Did he use MC and the arbiter to keep the flood alive?

BUNGIE MUST HAVE BEEN ON CRACK!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, Halo 2, the ultamite game of the world. Where can I begin on how HORRIBLE THAT STORY WAS. If there is anything worse than a rushed story line that crams everything in at once. Its that ending. When I first got the game I was gonna die of a heart attack. The game that everyones been waiting for was in MY X-Box. I keep playing. Hoping that there will be a quick change in the story and everything was gonna be explained. When I finally beat it. I WAS PISSED. BUNGIE LET US BELIVE THIS GAME WAS PERFECT. WELL ITS NOT!!!!! If you want to enjoy Halo 2 at least a little bit. Play X-Box Live!!! GODAMMN YOU BUNGIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Explanations

Bungie rarely explains their games or wraps all elements of a story up neatly, preferring to let fans debate the plot for years on end, as was done with Marathon and, to a lesser extent, Myth.

Some of us prefer it that way :)

Cortana's loyalty

At the end of Halo 2, after the credits, it shows Cortana helping the flood monster. Please tell me she's not a traitor.

"Source"

Yes, that "source" would be Frankie, who posted that there would be downloadable content on Bungie's website, bungie.net.

halo ending

i was dissapointed in the ending, for some reason it wasnt as satifying as the first, but the game still rocked, playing as the elite was fun, i just hope halo 3 is a little better

halo2

i didnt believe it possible for something to both SUCK and BLOW at the same time.however the ending to halo 2 proves me wrong. i have no quarms about bungie releasing a third game, but the least they could do was finish the second one first.

well actually, bungie didnt w

well actually, bungie didnt write the story, its based on a book, and they only did that so they could have a story set up for halo3.

my guess if mc fails, prophet makes it to earth / the ark.
flood invade earth, cortana gets a little messed up, leaves johnson, the arbiter and miranda fighting off the infinite waves of flood while mc rushes to stop the prophet of truth from firing the halos

Sorry, wrong

The Halo novels are based on the games and on the Halo Bible, a document written by Bungie to provide the backstory for the games. The games are not based on the books, it's the other way around.

Halo 2

I think it has 2 parts to it
Just because of the ending and how short it was. Surely the Bungie crew can figur out something better than that

Only to those who dont understand the ending are disappointed by it. Some have to think really hard about it, but it is very obvious. He activates the rings and kills everything to finally end the war. If you pat very close attention to the ending after the credits, you'll realize it.
