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. Official Xbox Magazine

    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.

    Great extra maps the only reason it gets an 8 is because they should have been included in the game at release. This game had a hellishGreat extra maps the only reason it gets an 8 is because they should have been included in the game at release. This game had a hellish development (look into it if interested) so Bungie had to cut a lot of material and use it in 3 or make a map pack like this. You have to also remember when this came out Xbox Live was very young (like 2 years old) and it was not as popular as it is today. Partly because internet was still very slow for most people. Expand
