As regular readers will know, we love Xbox Live. In fact, several Stuffers spend what could conceivably be described as an unhealthy amount of time playing Halo 2 online. We like to think it's improving our social and hand-eye coordination skills. So what's our verdict on Halo 2's two new maps?
Containment - the big team battle one
We think this is going to the biggie out of the two. It's a rambling, snow-set level with bases at either end, making it perfect fodder for a big team battle. It's also packed with vehicles and enough hiding places to stop it from becoming a sniperfest. We say: top banana.
Warlock - the cramped-and-fast deathpit
Set in a small, gladitorial-style arena, Warlock's the Slayer man's natural home. It's well laid-out, with multiple vertical levels and little cover, so the shotgun and being good at boshing people on the head are both essential.
How to get them
Load up Halo as usual, select Xbox Live from the menu, log in and select 'content downloads'. When asked, quit out of Halo and select the 'bonus map pack', which is completely free. You can buy two more for a paltry £3. There's more detail and videos on Xbox's site here
