Halo: Master Chief Collection

Comparing Halo 2 In The Halo: Master Chief Collection

The Halo: Master Chief Collection combines all the main, numbered Halo titles, but since this is the 10-year anniversary of Halo 2, that game is getting some extra attention.

In the gallery below, you can take a look how all the games in the collection are looking better (in cinematics as well as gameplay), and below are direct comparisons of how Halo 2 is cleaning up. Quite the difference.

For more info on the Master Chief Collection (as well as a trailer), take a look at our rundown.

  • Holy s**** this looks so freaking awesome. I can't wait.
  • I cannot wait to rock 4000 gamerscore for this. And to replay 2 and 3, it's been awhile. I was actually one of the few that liked being the arbiter in 2. I thought that was an awesome twist. And the Scarab battles in 3...I apologize, forgive me for geeking out and nutting up.
  • I need! It's a pretty rad idea to use pre-rendered cinematics, that'll make all those cool moments so much more momentous.
  • I will Binge play the s*** out of this...1 to 4 baby here I come...and you can mix multiplayer maps from the different games too...ERMERGAWD
  • Sgt. Johnson, you never looked more intimidating.
  • One of the most exciting announcements from the show for me by far.
  • I don't remember much from the campaign's of Halo 1-3 so this is just awesome. I can't wait!
  • The Orbiter looks BA!
  • Looks good. One day I will play it. My back log is just too big right now. Damn responsibilities get in the way!

  • Sucks that odst and reach aren't included!
  • i kind of hate to say it but might be the tipping point i've been lookin for to get an xbox one.

  • Are they going to fix the ending while they're at it?
  • Wow, it's so dang gorgeous. I can't wait to pre-order my copy!
  • Definitely excited for the Anniversary version of Halo 2.

  • Wow it looks terrific. Now only if we can do something about that final mission!

  • Curse you, XBox One. Now I have to buy you.
  • Am I the only one that is way more excited about this than about halo 5?
  • This looks fantastic. I never experienced Halo 2 when it first launched, but the Halo series is far and away my favorite franchise. On an unrelated note...and I hate to bring it up...but did anyone else notice that virtually every game at Microsoft's conference was mentioned to be 1080 and 60 fps? With all the recent hubbub about the X1's graphical disadvantage, I expected to read a report about this. Are the devs able to do this because they are disabling Kinnect or is this something that was already in The works prior to that announcement?

  • The ring looks smaller now
