I haven't caught up on glitches in the past few couple months, but I do remember a trick that you could do to jump slightly higher than normal-maybe it's the same one you're thinking of, but idk. What you need to do, I think, is you fire with the battle rifle twice, then switch weapons with Y. You need to press the buttons really fast otherwise it doesn't work. If you jump and then do that it gives you a very small boost in height and you take a small amount of damage. If that's not what you're thinking of, then I don't know what to tell you. The only other thing I can think of is 'flying', which was taken out of the game with the new map downloads.

Halo 1 was the best game I had ever played. I loved the campaign mode, loved the story and I thrashed everyone on multiplayer, so I loved that as well.

Then Halo 2 came along. Wooo BOY!
I was at the midnight release, and was one of the first in line! I got home and played Halo 2 all night. The first noticable thing in Halo 2 was the grenades, and how the don't throw as far... Then, playing with the pistol, I realised that it was no where near as good as it was in Halo 1. It was one of my favourite weapons, but now.... You get used to these things..

After playing Halo 2 for some six months, I thought it would be funny to play Halo 1. Me and a few mates jumped on. We were shocked. Halo 1 literally sucked. The graphics were sparce and repetitive, the physics just didn't seem right. The music seemed...dull.

So after that incident, I have never looked back to Halo 1, and I have stayed true to Halo 2 ever since. Mind you, I haven't played my XBox since before last Christmas...

So clearly, I have voted Halo 2 as the best

SuperJumping:

There is about 20 superjumps and superbounces in halo 2.
Most of them are pretty difficult but a good one for beginners is getting on top of the wheel in Zanzibar.

It's kinda hard to explain, but if you wanna know PM me via KoC.

Actually, you can superbounce from anywhere you can crouch into and stay crouched w/out holding crouch, such as the bottom bases of the windmill in Zanzibar. Then you essentially jump onto a "graphics line", which exploits the physics of the game to possibly bounce you really high.

This is probably too confusing, so here's a vid that explains it:

Alright...this has been bothering me for over a year now. I went over to my friend's house over a year ago and he showed me a halo1 montage that was like the coolest video at the time, but I can't find it on the internet anywhere to download. It was done by a group known as the s0b clan and features top players such as Zyos and Walshy in it. Also, if it helps, the backround song was The Outsider(Apocalypse Mix) by A Perfect Circle. If anyone, by chance, knows where I could find and download this vid, then I'll give them a bunch of rep points.

Oh, and to stay on topic...halo1>halo2. I just played one of the new levels for h2 the first time the other day and boy did it suck. It was some weird foggy forest level with a very cramped building in the middle. Boy, I'd have more fun rolling around in a pile of sh*t than ever playing that level again. So halo2 loses some points 'cause of that level.

Halo 2

Halo is pretty good in that the missions are way better, but i'm more for the multi player games. so my vote would definitely be for Halo 2.

I'm gonna get yelled and critizied for this, but neither are good.

Sure everyone has to talk like a nerd and say Halo: Combat Evolved has a better storyline (which is true, and what pissed me off in Halo 2) and Halo 2 has better graphics, multiplayer, and extra easter eggs, but none of you have looked deeper.

Both Single Player Campaigns suck. Even though Halo: CE had better storyline than Halo 2, has anyone noticed the level design? It is all the same during certain areas. Halo: CE was good because there was no boss fight, but Halo 2 adds one (that is a spoiler for those who haven't played it yet).

Melee is worthless (except for the sword). While it is a feature needed for modern FPS now, the fact that it takes 3 hits to kill some by hitting them with a rocket launcher is perposterous. Plus, most of the melee moves have been replaced with not as cool moves.

If I were to vote on one however, the winner would be...................Halo: CE.
The idea was original and grand. Halo 2 steals duel wielding and other ideas from other game companies. Plus (spoiler alert for those who haven't played yet, stop reading now), what the hell does the plant have anything to do to develop the Halo Saga?

Well actually, in the auto update for xbox live, or in the new retail cd, the melee has been a given a HUGE boost. As for the dual wielding, I completely disagree because it adds a level of skill to the game because you have to be aware of all possible situations.

Well i gota go with halo 2 for the live and dual weilding.

I play live a ton and im pretty rediculously good at halo 2. I like the updates alot actualy, i was playing on my freinds box who doesnt have the updates and i was getting so agrivated when my melee didnt kill some one.

I can show you guys a few superjumps or maybe help you get some levels on live if you want, im a 28 atm, my best rank was a 31, froboy2718 is the gamertag.

I think Halo1 is the best since halo2 has to many objects so u don't get the maps clear like int the 1st one and there is also many graphical problems in the #2 even in the 1st there are many but not so many just like this the Halo2 don't have chans against the Halo1 :P
