Description: Halo 2 continues the story of the Master Chief, the genetically
enhanced super-soldier who is the only human ever to successfully
defy the Covenant--a coalition of alien races on a murderous march
toward Earth. Their defeat at the ancient Halo artifact was only
temporary, and they are pursuing their goal--the complete obliteration
of humankind--with renewed zeal. Human military forces are exhausted
and unable to stave off the Covenant's rapid advance toward Earth.
Even with the Master Chief back in action, the situation looks dire--and
this is at the beginning of the game, before things get even worse.
In true Bungie tradition, the solo campaign in Halo 2 deepens and
expands upon the story that began in the first game: old questions
will be answered, new mysteries will unfold, and the truly epic
nature of the story will finally be revealed.
