Storyline

After the events on the Forerunner ringworld Halo, Master Chief SPARTAN-117 returns home to Earth with the AI construct Cortana. The war with the Covenant forces is still not going well, despite the destruction of an entire fleet at Halo, but the Master Chief needs a refit. Armed with the Mjolnir Armor Mark VI, he is on his way to a decorations ceremony with the thought-to-be-dead Sergeant Johnson, when Covenant forces emerge from the Slipstream into Earth space. But something is wrong: the fleet is much smaller than the one used to destroy Reach, humanity's former frontline stronghold. The Master Chief and Cortana, along with Commander Miranda Keyes and the crew of In Amber Clad, must fight off the Covenant and protect Earth, a battle that will take them across the galaxy to a new planet, which is disturbingly familiar...Meanwhile, the Prophets, leaders of the Covenant, are not pleased with the Elite Commander that allowed the Master Chief to destroy Halo, and he is branded a heretic...

Trivia

The only enemies encountered whilst playing as the Arbiter are the Heretic Covenant, the Flood and the Covenant Loyalists (Brutes, Jackals and Drones). No hostile Humans are ever encountered during the game. See more »

Goofs

During the invasion of Earth, it shows several Covenant and human ships entering Earth directly over Africa to get to Africa. However, the angle is too steep that you would hit Earth directly and crash. The best way to get to Africa via space is to enter the atmosphere over South America at a safe angle. See more »

Prophet of Truth: One? Are you sure?
Arbiter: Yes. They called it the "Pillar of Autumn"
Prophet of Mercy: Why was it not destroyed with the rest of their fleet?

Prophet of Regret: When you first saw Halo, were you blinded by its magesty?
Arbiter: Blinded?

It wasn't what I expected it to be.
9 September 2005 | by (Denver) – See all my reviews

First let me say that I don't really like video games. Once in a while a truly good game comes out and I can't help but check it out (i.e. Grand Theft Auto, Halo, and Killzone). So obviously since I loved Halo so much I had to check out it's sequel. Anyway, Halo 2 wasn't nearly as good as I had expected it to be. The weapons for one got worse instead of better. They completely got rid of the MA5B assault rifle and replaced it with the crappy Battle Rifle (which doesn't even have a cool number for it). It is only semi-auto and doesn't do jack to anything but flood and thats only if you shoot them in the right place. In my opinion the Chief's armor got down graded in coolness factor. Personally I think it looks stupid now and not as bulky and threatening as it did in the first one. One the plus side, the plot was much thicker and deeper than the first one and makes me really look forward to Halo 3. Multiplayer is also somewhat better as the fact that you can get the new Gauss Warthog and choose to be an elite although there is absolutely no difference between him and the chief except the HUD. Thats really all I have to say other than that Halo 3 better redeem Halo's honor by making it A lot better than Halo. It's worth trying if you are bored on a Friday night, but I recommend Ki
