Halo2 remaster looks awesome in 4k. The original graphics are hard to look at, lol, unlike CE.

Play for six hours straight last night , competitive multiplayer. never had one single server issue. Time to join a match has also greatly improved . I was bouncing back-and-forth between halo three and four .

I have a bunch of backlog games to finish, but I have a feeling I'll be playing through H2 in 4k instead.

I will try the multiplayer again. Hopefully it works. Should be a blast to get into some Halo 2 mp again. With the game hitting game pass there should be a bunch of people too.

I played a few missions from the H2 Anniversary and original Halo Anniversary. They both looked great. The tank mission in Halo 2 was too easy, I could see all the enemies from sooooooo far away with the upgraded resolution!

I downloaded this last night. Looking forward to seeing how these games look and play on the X. May dabble in some MP too I remember Halo 2 being a lot of fun online.

Maybe most of us old enough to remember Halo 2 are in a retirement home without internet access by now.

Yea idk. I enjoyed Halo 1 and 2 the most. I don't get why Halo 3 is so popular on MCC. I mean you can still play that game online on Xbox 360.

Agreed. Halo 2 is probably my favorite campaign, and the remaster is fantastic to behold.

1, reach, 4, 3, 2 tied with 5....for campaigns, 2’s most memorable moment was the tank stage.

For real. Halo 2 has one of the best FPS campaigns of all time. The remaster is amazing.

New Update


https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/mcc-january-update


Hello friends and welcome to the first MCC Update Blog of 2019! The team is back in action after an awesome update-filled 2018 and some holiday downtime we're excited to share kick off the new year with a brand new MCC patch. Back in November, we introduced the Match Composer for Social Matchmaking along with new aiming customization, ban rules, and a slew of fixes – all driven by player feedback. Today’s update brings you into Halo’s Winter Celebration and adds a new “modern aiming” option, a few more skulls to Halo: CE, and numerous bug fixes. Let’s dive into the details


NEW FEATURE: "MODERN AIMING"
This feature is designed to help address feedback from some players that aim acceleration in MCC doesn’t “feel right.” The “modern aiming” option helps to smooth out the aim acceleration zones on your controller by using values that are more like H2A and H4 than the older legacy titles. The big difference you will notice is that the movement of your cursor is much smoother with these settings turned on and the aim acceleration zones in the diagonals are much harder to activate.


NEW SKULLS FOR HALO: CE
Ramp up the challenge and further customize your Halo: CE Campaign experience with the addition of eight more skulls!


PLAYLIST UPDATES
Along with today’s update, we are also making some changes inside of Social Matchmaking. We would like to welcome our latest rotational playlist to the lineup: “Super Duper Fiesta!” This preset includes a mix of Fiesta variants across H2C, H3, H4, and H2A. This will be replacing the “Team Action Sack” option for the time being (don't fret Action Sack fans, it's a temporary refresh). To play Super Duper Fiesta, go to "Social Games" and you'll find it in the "GAME PRESET" option - note that it's using the Action Sack icon but the description displays "SUPER DUPER FIESTA!"
