Just before the launch of the Xbox Series X|S this week, Halo 2 actually celebrated its 16th anniversary.

Yep, when Bungie's second game landed on the original Xbox in 2004, it was the first Halo title on the system to allow players to take the fight online, play as the Arbiter and even dual-wield. The story also saw Master Chief return to Earth:

"After the events of Halo: Combat Evolved, Master Chief and Cortana return to Earth in an attempt to stop the onslaught of the Covenant, a terrifying and aggressive alien civilization, bent on destroying the human race."

If you want to relive these glory days, the best way to experience Halo 2 is in its enhanced form in the Halo: The Master Chief Collection. In fact, the 120 frames per-second update for the collection will roll out next week on 17th November.
