As the soundtrack was finished before all the in-game music was completed, none of the tracks written by O'Donnell appear in Halo 2 in the same arrangement. Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger said that " Halo is the only video game that ever inspired us to write a whole suite [of music].
The first pieces of music O'Donnell wrote for Halo 2 were promotional in nature; O'Donnell scored the cinematic announcement trailer for Halo 2 on August 2, , and followed up with interactive music for the Electronic Entertainment Expo Halo 2 demo. Combat Evolved ' s choral theme, along with additional guitars by Steve Vai , would return in Halo 2. O'Donnell noted that the new setting of Africa prompted him to look at "Afro-Cuban" influences, but most of this type of music did not make it to the final product.
Rather than write for locations or use leitmotifs for all the different characters in what O'Donnell called a " Peter and the Wolf approach to music", O'Donnell wrote "sad music for sad moments, scary music to score the scary bits and so forth.

Due to legal issues, the second Halo 2 soundtrack containing the entire finished score, Volume 2 , was not released until more than a year after the soundtrack had been mixed and mastered. The first volume of the Halo 2 Original Soundtrack was specifically timed to coincide with the launch of the video game, to cash in on the " Halo effect"; players would go to buy the game and get the soundtrack and other merchandise by association.
Legends of Rock on the Xbox Upon release, the reaction to Halo 2 ' s score was generally positive. Volume 1's inclusion of other artists in addition to original music received both praise and criticism. Overall, the Halo 2 soundtracks sold well.
Volume 1 sold more than , copies,  and peaked at the number position of the Billboard , the first video game soundtrack to ever enter the chart. This compares favorably to typical movie soundtracks, which generally sell no more than 10, copies.
