I feel like i should bring a pacifier to this fight. As much as I love Halo, and I do, there were things I didn't like. The weapons never felt heavy to me, like killzone felt like I was ripping apart these guys. Halo felt like I was killing but it wasn't hurting. I hope that for one is fixed, it's a nitpick but it is a shooting game so I hope that's fixed.
I like Killzone 2. I think that was massively under-appreciated. The thing is, it's hard for me to compare KZ2 and Halo 3 becasue their styles are so intentionally different. KZ being class warfare and Halo being this battle sandbox with all these toys.
Class Warfare? Its basically a futuristic Call of duty, its not under-appreciated, its basically a ps3 exclusive shooter with not a lot of soul behind it. Halo is know for being more open than many other shooters with beautiful details everywhere, calling it a "sandbox with toys" is invalid. try again.
Disagrees for stating an opinion on how the guns feel. Must be cause it was compared to a sony title. : ) I liked Killzone 2 more than 3 but loved the gunplay on both. I know they're different which is why I only compared the guns, since they're both shooters. Halo's weapons have never felt meaty, not weak either, just not meaty.
Too bad Halo is dead now. 343 ruined it with "halo 4",they copied call of duty.
Copied? CoD and almost all modern console shooters owe their existence to Halo.
I never said cod was innovative. Halo formula is unique and now they copied cod so it ruined it.
There's no doubt they took so inspiration from COD, with loadouts but the way they're incorporating them and the ways they are tooling around with formula are (or seemingly) modernizing halo in a way the souless Reach didn't.
With the War Games online multiplayer content, a few gamers have voiced fears that the customisable load-outs and character progression elements are moving the series closer to Call of Duty. How would you allay those fears? FRANK: One thing I've learned over 10 years of working with video game communities is that trying to allay fears is like trying to put out a fire with gasoline. You just have to believe in what you're doing. I've been in this industry for twenty years, and most of the comparative systems that people think are being ripped off or borrowed from one title have been around in the industry for longer than I have. It's not so much that we're doing completely new things or that we're taking things from other games, it's just that, every time we go through the process of making a new Halo game, we have to evolve it to move it forward – otherwise you just increase the resolution of the successful maps and put out the same game every year. That wouldn't work, that would be terrible business. So you have to evolve the game naturally and sometimes fairly radically. Some of the things we've done would seem fairly trivial to the average man in the street, but they make a really significant difference to players who take this stuff seriously. And of course, in the vacuum of not having played it – or in our case, they haven't even seen a lot of it – there's this panic and resistance to change. Typically we find that, as long as we do our jobs correctly and ensure everything is balanced and fun and makes sense for our game, which has a very specific heart to it, then eventually even the most resistant players will figure out what's good and what's bad for them, and then pick their matchmaking style based on those premises. Eventually, they adapt.
Crap.. Damn shame this is the same garbage for another 3 games.. Same style, same everything with shinier guns n armor.. Halo rocked for its first 3 games but i realized that its the same thing like COD & every other franchise milked to death.. Make a NEW IP damnit.. Some of us dont want mindless copies.. No offense ppl but damn really?
Actually it's not the same which is why it sucks.
I say after 3 games, move on.. Mass Effect is a perfect example.. Each game evolved from the last instead of just adding a few new weapons.. Ended at 3 (so far) & now they can work on something new.. Maybe in another 5-10 years it deserves a reboot or something but not all the damn time like COD. Put some fresh ideas & make an evolutionary engine to do a sequel.. dont do the same shit & i bet the game is no bigger than reach was in terms of content or landscapes.. SAME SHIT
@ tgonzalez - So I can assume you won't be buying any more sequals to your favorite franchises? @ Mastarace - Was there a playable demo for the public at E3? Do you have an advanced copy? Just wondering how you know it sucks.
Of course he will praise "random Sony franchise" #4 because he most likely has never hijacked a car and driven the gunner off a cliff in a halo game. He watches the videos and assumes its generic. Annoying as hell if you don't have anything positive to say about the opposite games/consoles stay away...
Mario says hi. Nuff said
So then you must not play many sequels to games, if you b****ing about that. I guess you going to miss out on the new God Of War game and you must hated MGS4.... I never played a squeal or prequel to a game that wasn't like the last before it in many ways.
u honestly believe that FOUR halo games belong in the same generation hardware?!?! thats microsoft milking yall but i dont care.. U can do whatever u please..
LMAO, I know you want us to believe you are not getting "milked" by some game franchise out there. That is them milking you but hey, we don't care, You can do what you please.
The funniest thing is you say its the same garbage for another three games, and then theres fans saying too much has changed. 343i purpose is to make Halo games. Get over it.
-Reads above Halo's 4 comments- I think this tune should be playing every time he/she preaches the gospel of the incoming rapture that is Halo 4 on N4g.... XD
Why doesn't everybody just shut the f*ck up and stop arguing all the time. Its driving me insane, why can't we just freaking talk about games instead of constantly arguing which game or console is better? If you don't like a game, then don't buy it, don't play it, don't even think about it if you have to. Why do people constantly biccer all the time. We are all gamers, looking foward to amazing games, and jesus christ "halo4" how old are you? It sounds like you shove your d*ck through the holes in Halo games disks. I'm not dissing halo, I have no interest at it all, but I see its a good game, but "halo4" grow the f*ck up.
This game doesn't come out for months and it is already dominating the pre-order charts. Some people on here have no idea what they are talking about. It's people like you that force game companies to try to downgrade their games to COD clones to impress you. Halo hasn't done that. They have to try new things and also keep it original. This is the 4th game. The first 2 weren't on this gen...So where is the milk? "No milk...will ever be our milk."
