    Halo 2 Multiplayer map pack

    The Halo 2 multiplayer map pack disc was released and the maps are pretty good. There were two maps available for download over xbox live and 9 other maps are available on a $.19.99 map pack disc. These maps are well designed. The only map I didn't like as much was the elongation map. I feel they could have done a little bit more to it because to me it just wasn't as good as the other maps. Also, a few of the new map environments don't share anything in common with Halo with how they look. Here are a few pictures.

    I've gotten my copy some hours ago. I've played through a few maps, and other maps I didn't play online in but I just played the levels themselves to get a feel of the environments.

    Still can't say I know anything about 'em, heh, as huge a Halo 2 fan I am, I'm even cheaper so I'm just gonna chill a month and let them go for free. Been too long since I've played Halo 2 now that I think about it...

    I did play the first four maps, Turf, Containment, Warlock, and ...the ...other one that's name escapes me. Aside from Warlock I enjoyed them all (really hate cramped small maps like that). So I'm looking forward to getting the new maps.

    Re: Halo 2 Multiplayer map pack

    Here is a list of changes that has come to Halo 2 Multiplayer.

    Core gameplay changes (as of version 1.1):
    -Shorter fuses for plasma grenades and frag grenades

    -Moderately enhanced frag grenade splash damage (2 hits to kill)

    -Massively enhanced plasma grenade splash damage (1 hit to kill)

    -Massively enhanced melee attack damage (2 hits to kill)

    -Massively enhanced Brute Shot damage (2 direct hits to kill)

    -Moderately enhanced Brute Shot melee attack damage (1-2 hits to kill)

    -Toned-down Magnum/SMG combo -Toned-down Magnum/Magnum combo -Toned-down Plasma Rifle/SMG combo

    Xbox Live cheat fixes (as of version 1.1):

    -Drastically enhanced automatic anti-cheating technology; stiffer punishments for cheating

    -Stopped players from using modem disconnections to "teleport...

    -Cheaters can be quickly kicked from matches and will be permanently banned from playing online

    -Stopped players from "Bouncing... flag in CTF games

    -Stopped players from grabbing flags through walls in CTF games

    -Stopped players from "flying... with the Energy Sword (still works in single-player)

    Playlist changes (as of May 02, 2005): -First and probably foremost, a reset leaderboard

    -Sudden Death has been removed from all Assault variants

    -Round times for Assault games increased to counter-balance for missing Sudden Death mode

    -If you're playing CTF or Assault, the Banshee is no longer available on either Ascension or Headlong

    -The overpowering overcharged Plasma Pistol/Battle Rifle combo has been limited by the playlists; Slayer games on Colossus and Beaver Creek will only have "Human... weapon sets

    -Motion Detector has been removed for Head-to-Head (one-on-one) matches, a rather controversial decision on Bungie's part

    -Most Coagulation and Burial Mounds matches will start players with a Battle Rifle, a much more suitable firearm for those larger, spread-out levels

    -The Phantom (invisible) matches are no longer in rotation

    -Head-to-Head matches now sometimes feature King of the Hill or Oddball rules

    -More CTF and Assault matches will feature Covenant vehicles, like the Spectre, Wraith, Banshee and Ghost

    The only thing I don't like about this is the fact that you have to buy it!

    Microsoft should have given this map pack for free through XBoX Live, I mean we already pay that monthly, why would they milk us for more!

    Still debating if I'm going to buy it!
