    These new maps look great, especially the swamp one and the one with the runaway maglev train, plenty of suicide oppprtunites there :rotfl:

    whats the point if the cheating :censored: will just hack them like the other maps. seems a waste of money unless you play with the same 8-16 people you know and trust and for most of us we dont. halo 2 is a great game but its had its day and was spoilt by a bad community from my point of view

    bungie are aware of the cheating going on with the new maps and appear to be taking action against these losers, I have experienced them a couple of times and have reported them them to the bungie cheatline address. :thumbsup:

    I disagree that halo2 has had its day! its only been out about 8 months!

    Auto update will be (hopefully) released next week to combat the stupid cheaters - it wont totally sort the problem but it will help - Report any you find though as Bungie do ban them - Remember to report them via the email addy that is mentioned on bungie.net - The feedback option on Live goes to MS first then to bungie so its alot slower.

    I watched the videos of the new maps over at Gametrailers and that map looked wicked. The swamp looked a bit like a map we used to play on recon 1? also you say £5.99 is that for the same amount of maps that they are selling in the shops for £12.99? if so what the fricking hell is the deal with that? lol

    AFAIK the only extra is a "Making Of" DVD.

    The disc in the shops includes all the dloadable maps so 9 maps in total plus all the Updates to the game - bug fixes etc. The disc is for people who dont have xbox live but still play multiplayer games via split screen/ Lan.

    The disc is not the same as the one that came with the limited edition tin.
    Basically it has a making of documentary for all of the new 9 maps.
    There is also a rendered sequence to show you what happen the marines you met up with in New Mombassa within single player game.
    Lastly there are trailers for the original Halo and Halo 2.

    Overall the extra bits are a bit poor and you will only watch them once.
    I mainly bought it so that if/when I buy a 360 I can put it straight onto my new system. Although now that I have bought it I was wondering whether I will be able to do this as I guess my pack has been 'registered' there end to stop you handing it onto friends for Xbox Live games?
    So buying a 360 and putting the maps back on may not work. Guess I wait and find out...
