Anniversaries of Halo 2: People who like sci-fi games will enjoy Halo 2 and Halo 5: Guardians, both in the Halo series. Both are the second game in a trilogy made by the same company, and both have campaigns where players switch between the main character in the series, Master Chief, and a character who is supposed to be working against Master Chief at the same time.
Halo 2 is also one of the most well-loved games in the Halo series. If the game chose to remaster for Halo: The Master Chief Collection, it didn’t a surprise that it decided. Halo 2: Anniversary well-receive by fans because it had new graphics and HD CGI cutscenes.
Not only did Master Chief Collection have all the main Halo games that release at the time. But it also had a lot of other games that were not part of the main Halo series. Another reason was that it was a good marketing move because Halo 5: Guardians would be out soon. To get started, Halo 2: Anniversary had a teaser cutscene for Halo 5. Spartan Locke meets the Arbiter, a fan-favourite character that many people hoped would appear in Halo Infinite. As of now, this cutscene is no longer in Halo 2: Anniversary.
There are many reasons why new fans who have never heard about Halo 5’s story might confuse by the cutscene. If you were playing Halo 2 while waiting for Halo 5 to come out, this scene was an apparent teaser. Since Halo 5 has come out and there has been another sequel, this scene doesn’t add anything to Halo 2 anymore. It sets up a framing scenario that the player would have seen in Halo 2’s campaign. When Halo 2 first came out, the cutscene events were a long way from when the player started playing Halo 2.
The Arbiter is a big part of both of these games’ stories. Halo 2: Anniversary players will know that the Arbiter will make it through both games and how his relationship with Master Chief will end. Also, the teaser cutscene gives away a little bit of what happens in Halo 2 and 3.
Fans have been hoping that Halo 3 would get the same anniversary treatment as the first two Halo games. The cutscene still shows up in Halo 5: Guardians, but it doesn’t look as good as the CGI cutscenes from Halo 2: Anniversary. Playing the games in order in The Master Chief Collection makes Halo 3 look worse than Halo 2.
PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S can play Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Halo 5: Guardians can play on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox 360.
