Hey its my opinion man. I love it. Its my favorite. Its leagues better than Halo 3 to me, but every Halo to me.
are you being serious ?
H2a sucks..H2A is the best Halo multiplayer there is. The only thing wrong with it is the low map count. Which wouldn't be a problem if 343 added forge maps to playlists other than infection
I'm still waiting for them to fix h2c.
Halo 2a is ok. But its nowhere near to be the best Halo multiplayer...
I think Halo 2A is a solid entry for what it was. It didn't receive 3 years dev time or a full budget or access to resources. Yet despite that, Certain Affinity has made a very fun MP mode. For me Halo 2 sits somewhere amongst Halo 2 and 3. There are certain aspects of Halo 2A I prefer, and the same goes for Halo 3 and Halo 2C.
I've been pushing an idea to Ske7ch to take to 343i to consider, but it would see Halo 2A be expanded with elements from Halo 3 (Mostly vehicles, maps, and weapons) and for the game to become its own Title. Rebranded as something like "Halo: Arena" and launched as a successor to the classic Halo gameplay. I have a thread about it that Ske7ch responded to if you feel like supporting the idea.
Response to the bold: Halo 5 would have been dead a long time ago if it weren't for Forge maps. Forge is the only thing really supporting Halo 5. The only content 343i added to the game (really) was REQs and remixes. The only thing that supported the Arena in Halo 5 and kept the game fresh was Forge maps from the community.
