Take the fight from the streets of Old Mombasa to the islands of Delta Halo to the very edges of the galaxy! The nine new maps included in this pack nearly double Halo® 2's multiplayer arena. Some battlefields feature tight-quartered, intense spaces designed for small-scale mayhem. Others are large-scale, interactive arenas with explosive vehicle combat--perfect for Split Screen, System Link or Xbox Live™. Expand

  1. Bungie really has outdone itself, and better than that, it's positively ushered in a glorious new era for the greatest multiplayer shooter on the planet. [Xbox World UK]

    A must-buy. Simple as that. Each of these 9 maps are astounding to say the least.
  3. Is it possible for an expansion disc to qualify as contender for Game of the Year?

    In the end, it's a simple situation. If you only care about the single-player portion of Halo 2, don't waste your cash. But if you're a Halo 2 multiplayer nut, you have no choice: you simply must invest in the Multiplayer Map Pack.
  5. It's the surprisingly effective tweaks to the melee and grenade damage, however, that remove any shred of doubt as to the value of this expansion. [June 2005, p.34]
  6. The perfect add-on for multiplayer Halo 2 fans. The nine maps and the critical update provide a refreshing experience and complement the game's online aspect perfectly.
  7. Halo 2 multiplayer was already a one of a kind experience. But now with a total of 21 maps to play, it's that much farther ahead of the curve than anything else.

    There are two truly terrible maps (Sanctuary and Elongation) and one averagely good but not great map (Gemini). The rest are some of the best There are two truly terrible maps (Sanctuary and Elongation) and one averagely good but not great map (Gemini). The rest are some of the best in the game. Overall if you cant download them online its worth the money because the other 6 maps are so great, especially Containment. Expand

    I bit pricey, I'd just borrow a friend's then just download it onto your Xbox but if you don't know anyone with the map pack I bit pricey, I'd just borrow a friend's then just download it onto your Xbox but if you don't know anyone with the map pack its worth buying. Bungie should make more mid-sized levels almost all the levels are big or small. Lockout is still the greatest map ever made, and Turf is pretty good to but all the others are made for lots of players on Xbox live for sniping and CTF. Expand

    A healthy array of maps. but theres a few stinkers in there. Mainly 'Backwash' and 'Elongation'. However, Relic is an A healthy array of maps. but theres a few stinkers in there. Mainly 'Backwash' and 'Elongation'. However, Relic is an enjoyable map, as is Terminal. I also thought that they were a tad over priced. Still... I wasnt amazed, just rather satisfied and no more.
