Halo 2 Demo

Just got back from the Microsoft Press Briefing, and I thought I might drop by and tell you a little about what I saw. ;-)

I'll skip the non-Halo 2 stuff and cut to the chase. The Halo 2 demo was the definite high point of the evening, as evidenced by the tremendous reaction when Ed Fries brought out Joe Staten to do the demo.

It opens with the MC and a bunch of Marines in a pelican, cruising over a city on Earth. First off, the Pelican is almost the same as the one we know so well. Almost, in that, instead of one pilot seat in an closed cockpit, there are two seats up front, and the cockpit area seems to be accessible from the main cabin area. Another thing noticeable here is that the some of the marines have been upgraded. A few were wearing almost-but-not-quite MJOLNIR armor with helmets. The graphics, of course, are beautiful. The depth-of-field effect, first displayed in the initial trailer, was used periodically. It really does an excellent job of moving your eye to the action, while providing a level of detail that would otherwise be confusing.

The drop ship lands (with real landing gear this time), and the live part of the demo begins. The MC is lead, in much the same way as in the Pillar of Autumn level (but this time with a weapon: the AR), through a first aid area and up to the front line of this particular skirmish. Throughout the makeshift hospital zone there is a lot of dialogue. Snatches of conversation, acknowledgements of the MC, story elements (nothing I could glean, however) all fade in and out as you move through the area. A medic is attempting to resuscitate a wounded soldier, but is unsuccessful and logs the time of death. The amount of detail on screen, in this scene alone, with no combat taking place, is unbelievable. Remember on AotCR when you climb the ramps towards the Control Room doors? Remember those paltry few bits of debris that the Covenant used for cover? Well, if you're a player who wants to check every nook and clear out every corner, be prepared to spend an eternity poking around. There's a lot of stuff - buildings, debris, supply containers, architecture, etc. - for you to check out. ;-)

Past the first aid area, we come upon our troops being shelled pretty hard. We see a section of the building that we are in get destroyed, and run past the new hole to see an enormous Covenant mortar-type unit perched a few blocks away. Looking over the edge of the promenade, we see a few Grunts and Jackals getting into trouble down on the ground. The new and improved AR, with a handy-dandy scope, makes short work of these guys. Moving downstairs, we come across an injured soldier, leaning against a partially-destroyed wall. Adjacent to him is a stationary chain gun, much like the LAAG we remember from the warthog. The current interface is a bit different, however, with the camera moving to a third-person perpective just behind and over the right shoulder of the MC. Your head is a bit of an obstacle here, which definitely will make some battles a little more challenging. The transition was quite smooth and fluid, just as in Halo:CE. After taking out a mess o' Grunts n' Jackals, the MC relinquishes the chain gun. The wounded soldier however, has a present. He offers his gun, which allows the MC to fire two weapons at once. To be totally honest, I wasn't looking close enough to tell if they were two ARs or two SMGs, but they were both the same. At this point, the big Covenant mortar-type-thing that has been mercilessly shelling the building we started in is finally targeted by squad of Longswords, dropping bombs and completely annihilating it. A quick jaunt down the last set of stairs and a few more Covenant forces out of the way and we're off through the streets.

The street area is pretty big. Lots of debris piles, exploding (and explodeable) vehicles, and the requisite Covenant forces making a big mess of things. The number of enemies and Marines on-screen is astounding. At one point I figured there were at least 15-20 different Covenant, a handful of Marines, and a whole mess of explosions, projectiles, and moving vehicles, all vying for rendering time. If there was any lag, I certainly didn't see it. Anyway, the MC shortly gets into the gunner's seat of a Warthog, only to find that someone removed the LAAG when we weren't looking. I suppose that's what he gets for parking it in such a crappy part of town. However, all is not lost, as whoever did it has graciously installed something better! Another moment of honesty here, I don't know what the thing was. ;-/ It fired a plasma-like bolt that exploded much like a rocket. So hopefully Someone Who Knows will step in here and tell what it was. Anyway, it blew stuff up real good, so our boy drove around and did that for a while.

Allow me to point out here that the streets look like the perfect place to go racing. A multiplayer level like this, Ghosts and Warthogs, and no weapons, just hijacking vehicles endlessly. Gawd, that would rock. :-)

Rounding a street corner, we get our first glimpse of the Brutes. They were pretty dark, but quite large and evidently strong. The MC got out of the Warthog to dispatch them, but a bunch of shots to the body didn't do anything, and a punch in the chest didn't either. Luckily, a well-placed grenade under a vehicle caused enough of an explosion to eliminate that particular threat, so the situation ended happily.

Then something miraculous happened. A couple of Ghosts were coming down the road towards us, and things looked pretty grim for the MC, when he jumped up onto the wing, and with one hand hanging on to the cowl, pushed the Covenant driver out and took his place! Man, that was incredible. I could watch that part over and over.

Now, using the newly-acquired Ghost, the Chief cruised the city streets, messing up the Covenant whenever and wherever he could. By the way, a new Covenant dropship, the Phantom, is a wicked-cool looking thing, and it makes a satisfying WHOOMPH when it explodes, falls to the ground, and rolls down the street. :-)

After a bit of hovering about and shooting things, the live demo portion ends and a cutscene takes place. The MC heads off, trying to lure the Covenant forces away. Many of them take the bait, and soon there is quite a large group of Ghosts and Phantoms following him down a kind of highway. There is a large door-type barrier, however, that is being closed, and the MC has to lean out of his Ghost in order to clear the gap. The cowl is ripped off of the Ghost, and the MC falls to the road. The barrier closes, however, and we are treated to a close-up of an Elite's reaction as he plows into the resulting wall.

The MC stands, ready for action, and looks around. Something strange happens. The sky is filled with falling objects. Are the Covenant bombarding Earth from orbit? Is it relief squad of Helljumpers? It seems like maybe, as the things land and open, much like the ODST pods described in Halo: The Flood. However, they're not the Helljumpers they're black Elites. A whole LOT of black Elites, surrounding the MC. Not only that, but they all have the same weapon: an energy sword. The final shot is of the MC, who reaches back with his right hand and exchanges his gun for a plasma grenade. He then charges toward the camera as the scene fades to black.

This game is going to eat your soul.

Hrm. I actually didn't think I had published this article, since the exact same thing was in my post to the HBO forum. Ah, well. The demo was worth another mention. :-)

Posted by: justin patterson on June 8, 2003 4:00 AM

Posted by: ed on June 9, 2003 8:25 PM

Will the AR and other weapons from the old halo be in halo 2? I did'nt see any in the demo, and why would we use the pistol or AR if we have the battle rilfe or smgs.

Posted by: Andrew on June 10, 2003 12:34 AM

Will a playable demo come out for Halo 2 BEFORE the game is released in August,2003.

I crap my pants and love on rhinoceros

Posted by: Neal on June 14, 2003 7:57 PM

I've seen the full demo movie too! it freakin rocks! I especially like how when you enter, you can hear and see the medics operating on wonded soldiers. The part where the brute jumps on the hog and ripps the people off was totelly unexpected. And the elites have an outstanding new look. G2G!

Posted by: Keelay on June 15, 2003 7:41 PM

yes you will have all of the same weopons, and vehicals that you had in halo 1 plus some.

Posted by: Keelay on June 15, 2003 7:44 PM

is it true for halo 2 on x-box that the controls are going to be different becasue u can use two guns at a time?

Posted by: Spike Spiegel on June 16, 2003 7:28 PM

Why do the marines have blue blood?

Posted by: SportsMan280 on June 17, 2003 3:25 PM

never mind, it was my playist

Posted by: SportsMan280 on June 17, 2003 9:33 PM

god the demo was awesome.....i think i .i cant wait for the demo and i really gotta get a WORKING box.it doesnt get better than this and i think its posssible that the AR might have an automatic and sniper mode.i think it went auto when he got the second gun but im jus guessing here.cant wait

Posted by: Derek on June 17, 2003 11:12 PM

HALO 2 ROCKS!!! It only sucks that its not coming out till early 2004!!! Man wish they would just decide on a date for it!!!! A word of advice reserve your copy as soon as the stores let you!!! There gonna fly off the shelves!

Posted by: Tyler on June 17, 2003 11:56 PM

The controls for Halo 2 won't change much with 2 guns. It will simply have the L trigger control the second gun instead of gernades. Yes that's right, no nades with 2 guns :( But seriously, did u think they could add in another arm or something?

Also, does anyone know if you will be able to control the Phantom featured in the demo. I have heard rumor of a controllable Covenant Shadow that is a 3 seater, but i think that may be a totally different vehicle.

Posted by: Kurka on June 18, 2003 6:58 PM

Halo 2 rocks but online can u still rip people out the wart and the ghost and are there still human tanks

Posted by: onald on June 21, 2003 8:09 PM

damn i hope they don't take out the sniper pistol. thats my favorite freakin weapon, especially in multiplayer.

Hi

does anyone know the new wepons that halo 2 has?
if you do email me at shahrouzb@hotmail.com

thanks

Posted by: Master_Chief on August 1, 2003 9:31 PM

MC doesn't jump out of the hog to deal with the brute. The brute lands on the bonnet of the hog from the phantom and MC is forced out when the brute rips the driver and passenger out of the warthog. Apart from that, damn fine job. Does anyone know if you will be able to do the kicking people out of vehicles on other stuff like if a banshee is flying really low, can you do the same thing? That would make Halo 2 rock even more than I think it's going to!

Posted by: Wolfie on August 6, 2003 4:37 PM

If anyone is still looking for a demo they could get it from game-revolution under downloads then goodies. I've beaten every level on halo in every dificulty but i didnt of course use the coop but i hoope you could have more on coop i dont think so but that would be cool. I CANT WIAT TILL IT COMS OUT. if you truly love the game the you should read the books; HAlo:the fall of REACH, and HALO: the FLOOD. they are good books.

Posted by: john on November 14, 2003 3:51 PM

Hey, I heard that they reposted the date to release it again. So now they might not release it in march but even later. I am sick and tired of the always delaying the release date. I for one want HALO 2 now not in another year so they can put just a little more detail in it. If they delay it again it's going to be hell for the halo fanz. See ya guys laterz.

Posted by: CANT WAIT LONGER on November 17, 2003 4:39 PM

Does anyone know the new controls (actual buttons) for all of the new abilities? Like all melee combos, sprinting, 2nd gun, peeking, jumping onto ghost, etc. Or some Halo 2 multiplayer levels and game modes? -Thx

By the way, the new mounted gun in the warthog was probably a mounted version of the hunters' guns from Halo:CE (warthog in the article). Also I have a wallpaper from Bungie that shows MC firing something that looks like an actual Hunter's gun!
Any additional info would be great.

Posted by: Halo Master on November 18, 2003 5:28 PM

Posted by: Bulgdoom on January 11, 2004 7:14 PM

I should know better and not lend credence to anything said here, but I'd like to appeal to all of you to take anything you hear with a grain of salt. The game will be out ONLY when Bungie announces officially when it will be out. Anything other than that is total and utter bullshit.

The ONLY source for official Halo 2 information is from Bungie's own site, at www.bungie.net

Posted by: George on January 12, 2004 8:12 PM

first of all, even if your dad does work on bungie, and u do got a copy, then it's an incomplete and shitty version. second of all, there is no confirmed date for when it comes out; it's somewhere between aplril 1st and march 23.

Posted by: Barth on January 19, 2004 8:09 PM

GOD I KANT WAIT FOR THIS GAME TO COME OUT there makin us wait to long but i do agree with the other guy that said the longer u wait the better it will be and i don agree with any of u on what gun that warthog was on the demo video looked more like a semi automatic machine gun of sum sort with exploding bullets

Posted by: conquer2090 on January 22, 2004 9:10 PM

ABOUT FIVE OF THE SPARTANS SURVIVED, AND ONE OF THEM IS CURRENTLY IN SPACE SOMEWHERE WITH DR. WHATTS HER FACE!!, OH yeah, cortana is also going slightly insane, and one of the spartons names was LInda, their best sniper.

Posted by: Ben on March 16, 2004 10:32 PM

Please send me pictures and any other information regarding Halo 2 I am a big fan of Halo. I just had a huge Halo party of 16 of the best people and I beat them all. Please send me a demo or something, I can't wait till Halo 2 comes out. If it is possible, since I am a beta tester, if I can test Halo 2 for you please?

Posted by: Max on March 17, 2004 3:54 PM

I just recently beat the first one for the pc, (i dont have an xbox) and it was the best sci fi game ever, and when my buddy showed me the demo on an xbox demo disk, i shit my pants, but when i beat it for the pc, and i saw that it set an opening for halo 2, i then pissed my pants, cried, and then played the maw all over again, i have madly fallen in love with this game, but please..please...someone(maybe an angel) tell me its coming out for the pc, cause i cant afford a shitbox right now.....so someone tell me please, and be honest as possible.

Posted by: josh on June 26, 2004 2:45 PM

I've heard from my contacts, that Halo 2 for the pc will be april/may 2005, at the same time Halo 3 will be released, the reason that nobody knew it was that microsoft wanted to be a suprise, my contact heard this info from microsoft's helpdesk. But i can't ensure that somebody lied. At least I didn't that I heard this.

Posted by: Floodhunter on July 13, 2004 5:07 AM

The bug things could either be prophets or brutes or the engeniers but actually i dont think that those will be in the game, that is the last ones i mentioned so i think you may be reffering to the prophets. But i was wondering is anyone aware of the weight of the mjolner armor. Oh and Halo Rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! See ya all in the top of the rankings on x box live. look for me i am Mecenary Slick.

I need to know. Is there a way I can play the halo 2 demo. Because it would be more fun to play it than to watch someone else play it or just watch a video recording. Just wondering if there is a Halo 2 demo that playable to other people.
