Breve resoconto su Halo 2 ( parte 1 )
Halo 2 is developed by Bungie studio and it is a first person shooter. This game is a set about 3 weeks after the first halo and is about saving human race from destruction by an aliens group known as the Convenant.
The graphics engine is a big improvement over the one used in halo 1. The new engine use a lot of bumpmapping to create details on a surface. This has the advantage of reducing the amount of polygons required to create details over a surface thus reducing the processing needs for the graphics. The new engine also support giant environment such as big city....Since it was first shown in 2002 , halo 2 got his visual appearance reduced to keep a stable frame rate. The reduction of quality is not that big and wont be noticed once in action. The multiplayer graphics are also being tunned down to help better gameplay.
Sounds in halo 2 were all redone from the original and have been made as great as the graphics are. In the current trailers, the sound look very impressive. The music is also being totaly remade by Marty O'Donnell which has proven to be a very good artist in the first halo. Some music clip from halo 2 can be downloaded here.
Those are the weapon that are now confirmed to be in the game.
1-Battle rifle, which is a mix between the assault rifle and the pistol. This weapon realy seem to be the basic weapon of halo 2. This weapon has very fast realoading and a 40 shot clip. The battle rifle also have a 2x zoom.
2-SMG, which is a very powerfull short range weapon and can be used in dual wield. This weapon is also reported to have a zoom but cannot shoot while zoomed in. The smg has a 60 round clip.
3-Plasma rifle, which is the convenant rifle and is the same as in halo 1. This weapon has a freeze effect in halo 1, it remain to be seen if this is the case in halo 2.
4-Plasma pistol, which is the convenant basic weapon. In halo 1 a charged shot from this pistol could take out your shield, once again it remain to be seen if it remain the same in halo 2.
5-Convenant long range rifle, this rifle is rumored to be the convenant version of the battle rifle.
6-Needler, which is a convenant weapon and fire homing projectile. In halo 1 this weapon was realy weak but Bungie said that the needler is much better in halo 2.
7-Rocket Launcher, which is the human anti-vehicle weapon. The rocket laucher in halo 2 is now equiped with a locking system. It remain to be seen if this system can only lock on vehicle. The rocket launcher has a 2 rocket clip. The rocket launcher has a 2x zoom.
8-Sniper rifle, is a very precise weapon wich can kill in one shot if aimed in the head. The sniper rifle has a 4 shot clip and 2x , 10x zoom.
9-Plasma Sword, this weapon is a dominant melee weapon. It has 2 mode of "fire" , the first one is regular melee attack which can kill in 2-3 shot and the second one is a powerfull lunge attack wich can kill in one shot.
10-Fixed Turret, this weapon is similar to the mounted warthog chaingun. It has unlimited ammo and can kill someone in no time. It remain to be seen how much damage this turret can do to a vehicle.
11-Mounted Warthog Gauss rifle, this weaping seem to be very powerfull agains other vehicles. It was seen killing ghosts in one shot in the e3 2003 video. Good rate of fire.
12-Mounted Warthog Chaingun, which is the basic warthog weapon. It can deliver quite a punch to about anything and has a very high rate of fire. The precision depend on the rate of fire. This also has unlimited ammo.
13-Mounted Warthog Rocket launcher, seem to do about the same damage as the infantry rocket laucher. It has unlimited ammo and a medium rate of fire.
14-Frag grenades, which can be very usefull.
15-Plasma grenades, which have a new explosion that look very nice. Those grenades can stick on someone leading him to an obvious dead.
Those are the vehicles that are confirmed to be in halo 2. The vehicles in halo 2 are completly destructible and the more damaged they are, the worst they are to control.
1-Warthog, is the basic human vehicle. It can be equiped with different weapon (Gauss, Chaingun, Rocket). The halo 2 warthog is medium armored and can resist some rocket impact depending on the hit location.
2-Ghost, which is the scout vechicle of the convenant. Ghost are now piloted by grunts in the single player campain. It has twin plasma rifle in front. Those rifle slow down your target when they hit. The ghost now has a new ability called boosting. If you hold the left trigger the ghost will go at twice the regular speed but this disable your weapon and reduce your ability to turn.
3-ATV, this vehicle is the scout for the humans. It has no weapon but is very fast and can turn on a dime unlike the ghost. The ideal flag runner vehicle.
4-Banshee, wich is the flying scout of the convenant. Equiped with twin plasma rifle and a fuel rod cannon this vehicle is a deadly foe. Like other vehicle it is completly destructable.
5-Pelican, wich are the dropships of the human force. This vehicle has been confirmed to not be pilotable.
6-Phantom, wich is the convenant dropship. This big vehicle can drop troop and vehicle as well as attacking. It look like it is very armored and will probably not be pilotable.
P.S. Non ci sono solo queste armi.

The single player campain of halo 2 has been said to be at least as long ar halo 1 campain. To we can hope a good 10 hour of pure fun.
Halo 2 start after the book "Halo: first strike" and is about saving earth from the destruction by the convenant. The halo 2 campain is supposed to be the end to the halo story. Bungie said that we would fight on earth, on the moon and on convenants homeworld. There will be for sure a combat on halo or another halo. 343 Guilty spark will be back and the flood too. You wont be the only spartan in halo 2 because in the book they say that 5 (Correct me if i am wrong) other spartan survived and they will fight with you.
Here is a very short and incomplete resum of halo:first strike
This book starts with the splitting of the two teams of Spartans back at Reach, here dealing with the team sent down to the surface to protect the generators.
Mean while, the MC has just blown up Halo and is drifting in the wreckage. It is at this point that he meets up with other survivors including Sarge. He was not infected as he had some sort of radiation poisoning and the Flood were unable to control him. Incidentally it is also where he picks up the stasis pod for another Spartan, Linda. She is half dead but they keep the body anyway in the hope of reviving her.
Loads of Covenant ships turn up and they proceed to capture a flag ship with surprising ease. This becomes their ship as they plan their next moves.
Going back to Reach, Red team is facing overwhelming odds against a covenant force outnumbering them 1000-1. Only heroic actions from Fred, Kelly and Josh help to turn the tides. The trouble is that Reach is not just another planet to be glassed, but the Covenant are again looking for an artifact. This is where we are re-introduced to Dr. Halsey. She remained behind in the Reach facility to be the person who blows it up to prevent the Covies getting their research.
The Spartan's are re-united when the Master Chief decides to go back to Reach to search for survivors. He says it is tactical but really he knows he cares for the others. After the rescue, the group are pursued because Dr. Halsey has the artifact which the Prophets want. (it has strange time and space bending properties) They go deep inside Reach and into massive mines and ancient structures to evade them. Suddenly a million or so Covenant turn up and surround them but don't shoot because they didn't want to destroy the artifact. This is the perfect timing for a rescue in a drop ship.
The "First Strike" is the decision to take action against the Covenant fleet who have discovered the location of Earth. (It wasn't clear to me how) They get out of the system and go to the asteroid belt mentioned in TFoR. They resupply there and head of to where the Covenant are gathering to attack earth. There is a massive mother ship (30km) long which they decide to destroy by overloading the engines. They infiltrate it, fight Brutes, fly around etc. and then get out with minutes to spare. The ship explodes along with lots of Covenant ships (500ish).
Separately, when Kelly was revived, she was badly burnt and couldn't fight. Dr. Halsey took her (maybe stole) without telling anyone, maybe for a secret mission.
Basically, the Covenant are still coming to Earth, but the MC has wiped many of them out, and now there are a few other Spartans to fight with him.
The remaining of the halo 2 story still remain a mystery...
1-The grunts, the basic convenant "warrior". There is MANY of them but they are very weak and coward. Once their leader is dead they just retreat in fear. Some of them are able to trow plasma grenades. Those are the cannon powder of the convenant. "weaker" Yellow , Orange , Black "Stronger"
2-Jackal, wich are the medium rank infantry of the convenant. They have a very sharp vision and are very good "sniper". They always carry a hand-shield to compensate their weak physical resistance. "weaker" Blue shield , Yellow shield "stronger"
3-Elites, which are the high rank fighter of the convenant. Their name speak for themselves. They carry many different weapon from the needler to the plasma sword. "weaker" Blue, Red, White, Black, Yellow "stronger"
4-Hunter, are the legged tank of the convenant. They are heavily armored and carry a powerfull fuel rod cannon. No information on them has been released for halo 2.
5-Brutes, almost no information has been released on them. We only know that they are armored and carry some kind of shotgun. They also have no shield.
No halo 2 information has been released on them for now.
The halo 2 multiplayer is a big amelioration compared to halo 1. We can now play on the xbox live system and with system link like with halo 1.
-Halo 2 multiplayer support 16 player for now.
-There is no information on the number of map but we have at least 4 maps confirmed:
-You will now be able to customize your armor. From your insigna to your color.
-Vehicle are now totally destructible: You can shoot the warthog tires. The damages reduce the vehicle controls.
-You can see your legs when you look down.
-There is no health meter, only shield. Once your shield are down 3-4 shot kill you.
-The shield is more powerfull and is very fast to recharge.
-Vehicle impact wont kill you at low speed.
-You can play as an Elite in multiplayer. You can customize the Elite look too.
-A lot of object can be destructed ....walls, pillar....etc.
-Sprinting is not implemented yet.
-There is no Melee combo yet.
-The master chief visor do not reflect environement.
-The is no dynamic battle scar on the master chief.
-You can now jump higher.
-You run a bit faster now.
-You can use 2 one handed weapon at the same time. At the cost of grenades....
-You must press "x" to pick up the flag.
-You must hold "x" to enter a vehicle. So now you can recharge while being near a vehicle.
-You can board vehicle that are going slow. For exemple you can board the warthog machine gun and control it even if the driver is not on your team.
-Convenant elites can be in the same team as spartan *Rumor*.
-You cant drive while holding the flag *Rumor*.
Nella campagna in SP combatteremo al fianco degli altri 5 SPARTAN II sopravvissuti.
FANTASTICOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !Super Destroyer
la maggior parte delle nuove armi e dei nuovi veicoli non sono ancora stati svelati da bungie...spero che mantenga il segreto fino all'uscita del gioco..
altri 5 SPARTAN??? wow!
i nomi delle arene finora rivelati sono:
-lockout(arena di piccole dimensioni con le balconate)
-Burial Mounds (arena medio-grande ambientata nel deserto)
-Zanzibar (quella presentata all'E3 di medie dimensioni)
-waterworks (arena di grosse dimensioni, quella con l'enorme edificio al centro della mappa)
Di medie dimensioni?!Ma se era enorme!dekko
Oddio,non oso immaginare quanto sarÓ grande waterworks!
un impiegato MS che ha provato la demo alpha ha detto che Ŕ circa 3 volte pi¨ grande di blood gulch, se non di pi¨..Khaj
Vi Ŕ la possibilitÓ che tra le arene MP di Halo 2 ci sarÓ anche qualche mappa ''restaurata'' di Halo 1.
Speriamo che la kia preferita di halo 1, hang' em high, venga restaurata nel 2 e che stavolta i ponti possano essere distrutti per poi crollare in testa ai nemici!Super Destroyer
ve lo immaginate????:9 :9 :9 :9
ieri l'altro mi sono comprato l'xbox!!!
me lo devo comprare halo, secondo voi???
