I agree. I never tried to finish Halo 1 or 2 on Legendary on the Xbox, but I've done 3, ODST, and Reach because there were achievements tied to them on 360. Never had much of a problem with the 3 on the 360 but I started up a Legendary run on Halo 2 for PC and I can't even make it out of Cairo Station

halo 2 legendary is just retarded.

The elites take way too much damage / recharge shield before they die.. I dont know what were they thinking when they made this.

I'd give Halo 2 a 7.5 or 8 out of 10 on the difficult scale. It's hard but I think Halo 1 was harder on legendary (I just finished playing Halo 2 on legendary and Halo Anniversary on legendary)

As everyone else said, be ready to dedicate a lot of time to this, H2 is fucking rough on legendary, it doesn't screw around.

Just finished Halo 2 on Legendary. Holy crap was it tough. Maybe worse than CoD: WaW.

Here are some views of my run through...

- Cairo Station and Gravemind were probably the hardest levels.
- Use short cuts. There are two notable shortcuts in Outskirts and Uprising allowing you to skip a good part of the level. Hard to describe where they are in text, but if anyone wants I can make a quick video showing you.
- There is a glitch to get the Banshee in the Control Room to kill Tarturus. Do it. Tarturus won't attack you while you're in a Banshee. If you like, I can also make a video for this.
- There are some battles you can run past completely or just find a good hiding spot until the Covenant/Flood kill each other. Only had one major battle in High Charity level because of this. Level was a lot less daunting than I thought it would be.
- Took maybe 10-20 hours to complete.

I played the last level three times, sucked ass. First time I finished but got disconnected and didn't know it so had to start again, second time tried the Banshee glitch but didn't work and killing Tarturus was too difficult, third time glitch worked and didn't disconnect.

Good luck to others attempting this.

Halo 2 is the hardest campaign out of all the halos, with maybe the one exception of halo CE's Library.

But halo 2 coop (which you cannot do over Vista anyway) always has Iron skull on, which means if one person dies, you have to start over from last checkpoint.

(I've beaten halo 2 legendary campaign 5 times solo over the years completely through and select levels like 100 times. so I do have a lot of experience )

To go in order of easy to hard. Reach, H3, ODST, H1, H2. Reach is a 1 while Halo 2 is a 10.1

In my opinion this is the hardest FPS Halo game on Legendary. If you are counting all of the games then I'd say Halo Wars.
Only one thing got on my nerves in Halo 2 Legendary, instant death when you were sniped...... from any where on your body. That's my only complaint.
Halo 2 is my favourite Halo game, and I am sad that it's multiplayer will truly be over, but the time has come for a sendoff. Rest in piece Halo 2, may the annoying guardians of matchmaking watch over you.

I think 4 is the easiest on legendary. I breezed through that but never even finished halo 2 on legendary.

haven't played PC but on Xbox it was crazy hard. I've beaten every game after 3 on solo legendary without much of any problems, but with 2 I never got past the 4th or 5th level. That was also 8 years ago when I was like 13, but still I'd say it's difficult at the least.

It isn't that hard, it just takes a lot of time and practice. Everything spawns exactly at the same place every time. The ability of cloaking lets you skip some hard battles. And some well placed grenade jumps can make it a real breeze. It requires dedication. Some people without it would call this game hard. Though compared to any other halo this is the hardest.

For some real skilled speed runs check:
