Halo 2 means a great many things to many different people, and given the impending release of Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Halo 2: Anniversary, we had to take a look at it for this week's Blast From The Past. For some, Halo 2 was the ultimate home console multiplayer shooter experience, the Xbox Live poster boy that still kicks a sizeable amount of posterior today due to its peerless balance and superb maps. For Bungie it was a chance to flesh out their universe, turning a premise into a fully-fledged canon. For Microsoft it was a triumphant last hurrah that proved their first foray into home consoles was a success.
For me, though, it's something more special. Halo 2 released shortly after the biggest breakup of my life and my parents' divorce, providing the perfect co-op distraction for my sister and I to bond once I'd returned from university. It kept us sane, and it will always have a special place in my heart.
Unfortunately, I also can't deny that Halo 2 has the dubious distinction of being the only mediocre -- perhaps even genuinely bad -- Halo campaign. Having dipped back into the Xbox original to prepare for the Master Chief Collection, I'd like to dissect the inconsistent singleplayer experience to work out exactly why it didn't pass muster... and why that didn't really matter in the grand scheme of things.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is out next week, containing all four numbered Halo titles in a single enormous remastered collection. Our full review will be going live soon, but it's now the perfect time to look back at the franchise and remember why we still loved it. For us, it comes down to the levels, thirteen years of unforgettable set pieces, pulse-pounding moments, vehicular shenanigans and the freedom to experiment and improvise with our own strategies. So without further ado: the top ten most legendary Halo levels.
DIShonourable Mentions (nobody's perfect):
Sergeant Johnson knows what the ladies like: grinding treads and awesome tanks. What's not to love? This level starts with a bang as you smash across a Covenant-occupied bridge in a Scorpion, snipe jackals, go on a shotgun rampage ("It's tight quarters on the other side, sir. Use this!"), blow up an entire Covenant task force in a gauss hog and finally leap onto the back of a Scarab to murder its crew.
Halo 2 may be the most inconsistent and unsatisfying campaign in the series, but damn, it has its moments.Click here to read more...
When Brendan reviewed the last-gen version of How To Survive last year, he found it to offer "ten hours of tropical islands to explore, enjoyable combat, and a moreish RPG grind to keep you foraging for new zombie-killing tools" and serve up a worthwhile way to kick one's virtual heels while waiting for the arrival of the PS4 and Xbox One. Twelve months on and Eko Software have released a new-gen version of their isometric survival romp, adding in a new playable character, one or two new islands, and the new modes that have been dropped in little DLC packs over the last year.
The core game remains largely the same, fulfilling a role that's a kind of mashup between Dead Island and Dead Nation. You trot around a handful of lush, tropical islands, picking up anything that you can find, in the hopes of beating off hordes of the undead and scavenging bits and bobs that might be used to fix a vehicle that can get you out of this hellhole. The darkness that night brings is to be feared, but not quite as much as the creatures who dwell in its inky shadows, and a torch -- flaming or electric -- is a fundamental necessity. Being caught out in the wilderness as night falls with out some form of illumination is a easy way to get yourself killed.
I gather that the game has been spruced up a little, although this isn't exactly a looker. How To Survive wasn't going to win any awards for visual design previously, and it certainly won't a console generation on, but the lighting effects perform well, and that's important in a game like this. Mind you, there's a distinct lack of fluidity to character handling, and I'm not sure having the melee button mapped to R2 is a good idea at all. It feels clunky and unwieldy at times, although ranged attacks fare a little better. Brendan's right, though -- the targeting gaffes can be really rather frustrating.Click here to read more...

It's a difficult thing to release a relatively low-budget racing simulator into a market saturated with hyper-realistic bodywork and robust physics engines. This year in particular has produced a wealth of triple A racing titles, with the likes of Gran Turismo 5, Forza 4 and Codemasters' DiRT3 battling it out for chart position. Still, Milestone have seen fit to throw their hat in the ring with their second attempt at an officially licensed World Rally Championship title, and it's a gritty affair.
Formula 1 has its Tifosi. MotoGP has its legion of Number 46 followers. Rally has a smattering of middle-aged anorak-wearers grumbling about the Welsh rain and the state of that 1965 Triumph motorcycle they've promised to restore one day. Perhaps that's what developer Milestone has got so right about WRC 2: it's understated; it's rough around the edges, and it positively demands your dedication.Grab a Thermos and click here for more...
We've admired the glossy paintwork from afar for what seems like forever, but now Gold Xbox Live members are finally being given the chance to get behind the wheel of Turn 10's latest racer for themselves. You'll be able to thrash one of three cars (Subaru WRX STI, Ferrari 599 GTO, and the 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator) around the 'Bernese Alps' track to your heart's content.
Also included is a preview of the Autolog-esque 'Rivals' mode, which allows you to pit yourself against your friends lap times for bragging rights, as well as an in-game reward when the title releases on October 14th. Visit Xbox.com for a download link, or access it directly from your console's dashboard.
