How did Infinity Ward go toe to toe with Master Chief?
There no need to state which is the best game... simply go and check which is the most played online of those two =D and you will find a clear answer xD
CALL OF DUTY 4 ALL THE WAY........
Call of Duty 4 baby.
What you guys said. Halo is Galo.
truthfully i dont think infinaty ward really expected the outcome they got from this game. I mean everyone knew it was going to be an awsome game but no expected the final outcome. Halo 3 = huge opening day/ COD4 = GOTY 07!!!!!! I can't wait till COD6 ( the next one infinaty Ward gets to make)
Yep, infinity ward just get on and do the deed. None of this hype stuff, they just let the game speak for itself.
COD4 is a better game, thats how it did it. just an opinion
have to say cod 4 was new halo wasnt. it just felt the same with some new things added on, granted you got forge and other stuff but i just dont think that made a difference.
i know right. Thats why i didnt like Halo3. felt to much like halo 2 but COD4, thats a comepletly different story
halo 3 is great fun and all. its got a lot of fun sh!t you can do with buddies... but cod4 melted my face from day one. it continues to melt my face months after it was released. doesnt get old.
Its so satisfying to kill someone on COD4 and then see that +5 or +10 figure come up knowing a few more and then you call in AIR SUPPORT or the Helicopter. Thats why its more fun to play for the majority. Its instant rewards
I get the same satisfaction when I get the Overkill award or a Rampage award in Halo 3. I almost got my first invincible award the other day but missed it by 2 kills! :( Hearing the announcer in Halo 3 say double kill, triple kill, etc... is soooooooo nice.
I say it was a draw personally.. COD4 WOULD have won.. but Halo has vehicles, map editor, and replay theatre.. which make up for the halo 2.5 graphics, and childish FPS shoot shoot mele gameplay.. plus 4 player coop story didnt hurt any.. COD4 has MUCH better gun fight and chaos tho..
its the realism that draws me in the graphics, attention to detail [shooting thru walls, weapons, characters...not aliens and stuff], real world scenario, things like this can actually happen, chances of us seeing aliens has a really small possibility. dont get me wrong halo was a fun game to play, its just not as fun as cod4
hate to disappoint but cod 4 is anything but realistic. Shooting someone in the chest with a 50 cal in real life would = severed in half in cod 4 its minor just sprint into cover and recover.
socomnick go hardcore if you want that
hardcore tdm or something is as close to realistic as u can get. but i guess the advantage with realism in halo would be its use of physics and the things u can do with the physics is awesome
CoD4 all the way
I up for a game of H3 when I get tired of COD 4 (which happens very quickly) and I up for a game of COD 4 when I get tired of H3 being matched against 12 year olds and the pedophiles that love them. And as for realism, they both are not realistic. If you want a realistic experience, join the army. Oh and for matchmaking at least H3 attempts to match you with players that are near your rank. COD4's matchmaking is basically a server lobby that forces players into it with no skill based matching calculations involved.
I like the open servers like they are, I hate having to work my way up in rank to find people that are worth playing. Not to mention it forces people to get better when they play people with experiance. I mean come on man do you seriously only want to play kids at your or below your skill level. Really, thats like having your mom hold your hand and walk you to your first class in college. Get Real
choose one over the other unless you only have a PS3, then you only have one choice.
How are you a fanboy if you like one game more than the other? In some peoples oppinion halo 3 is a better game and alot more interesting features. And others like the Quick and fast play that COD4 MP provides. Plus shooting through walls is awesome.
But i do agree if a PS3 fan is saying COD4 is better cause its on the PS3. That would be fanboyish.
Halo 3 blows chunks,COD4 FTW!
BTW just cause you only own a PS3 doesn't mean you haven't played Halo 3 in person,I played it alot on my friends 360 it was average at best;)
I don't know when the hell it became taboo to, you know...own more than one game, but it's beyond ridiculous at this point. Any pair of decent games within a genre these days just HAVE to be compared and a winner MUST be chosen. Who gives a crap, really. If you're too shortsighted to see the merits of two awesome games, then that's your problem, no need to perpetuate that crap to anybody else.
Say you buy the game next month, well then your going to get your ass kicked literally, every round. It's cool that you can upgrade your weapons and perks, hell it's a really great idea. But it's also unbalanced for newbies who are stuck with the crappy default weapons and low custom options. In halo, everyone starts out the same. In my opinion Halo is skill and COD4 is more about whose better upgraded.
"noobs" do not have disadvantage of having low selection of weapons. I played games I am level 44 Prestige 5. I still using starting weapons because 2 of them are the best weapons. I also use starting perks. Stopping Power and Steady Aim.
COD4 starts you off with good perks and awsome weapons you just have to get use to them. Unlike other games its not who started unloading there semi-auto rifle on the other player first who wins the fight. So i see where you are coming from but if you know your weapon use all the features ( laying out on the ground and shooting through walls) then it all starts becoming very equal. Give it another chance. Just dont get me wrong halo is freaking fun and i want the ne dlc maps soon but as of right now i am on a cod4 binge
I Dont care for the newer weapons, and it does the job just fine to put me on the top of the boards. COD4 is about skill. Aiming and response time to when you get shot is key. It doesn't hurt to play with a mic and actually figure out a strategy with non-12-year olds teabagging eachother. This is the reason why you can still get killed by someone with a pistol + headshot. It doesn't matter WHAT gun the other person has. Clearly if someone shoots you first it really doesn't matter WHAT gun you have. Halo3 is an arcade shooter, tiny player games. I don't give halo3 a pass because a baby can pickup and get a kill. Some gamers like challenging games. Not Pong.
I acctually thought the same thing, I thougt that level 55 guys will have a huge advantage over new comers, but when I went online it was so easy to own... the perks are just there for perks and add ons its how you use the perks and your surroundings is what make you own. Not what level you are, I know tons of level 50 people that I can beat.
CALL OF DUTY 4 ALL THE WAY
No matter what game or genre you will always like somegames more than others and i think that these articles are more or less gathering oppinions. And if a person doesnt own both games or played through and experianced all the features of both games then there oppinion is as useless as a million bucks on a stranded island
COD4 opened its arms to a ton of new players. Whether it was the poignant timeline of the game, or the photo-reality & intensity. COD4 is a game experience that people haven't had in a while. The single player is stunning, and perfect length. They have used a ton of tricks to make ways around technical limitations, but it doesn't show. COD4 is beautiful, as are all of the environments. Which deliver the same exact quality in multiplayer. The Multiplayer is at this point, second to none on any console. The actual achievements are great. Achievements done in the way that COD4 executes make achievements meaningful. You have an unlimited number of combinations to make for your player. Match making is great, inviting friends to parties is great, plus the variety of game types puts COD4 way ahead of Halo3. Its great to know that Infinity Ward is keeping on top of the servers as well. Although some people are having issues, everyone isn't. Games are always going. Like any online games you play , you are subject to disconnects. Thats just the nature of the beast.
both are amazing though
have to say halo3 matchmaking is not good
for some reason i drop out 1/2 the time some days it was not like this when the game was 3 months old
COD4 is for noobs oh yahh i did not drop a level yahhh
let me recover my health while i got shot like 5 times in the leg yahh
what gets me into COD4 is the weapons!!!!!
I agree... the best weapons are the ones in the very beginning in Call of Duty 4. Halo 3 to me is backwards in almost every area. I want to concentrate on killing people when I enter a match, not search for weapons. I don't want to play with people at my skill level. I want to have matches that I dominate and sometimes get owned. I don't want to travel over huge maps just to get to the otherside, get killed, and have to make the run again. I don't want to play with kids that don't follow the objectives (in call of duty 4 I go to search and destroy and usually only the more serious play there), I don't want to be penalized heavily (Halo 3) for leaving a game if my friend invites me to his, I don't want people to leave the match and no one to take their spot, I want to be able to run/dash, I don't want to get sniped every sec., I don't want to see my dead body once I get killed, and more. I don't understand how Halo 3 could get just about everything wrong. Even the rating system is broken.
buddy i like the venting in you'r post. Keep it coming :)
Does anyone else feel like we need doctor phil in on some of these posts?
That is exactly the things that me and my friends that play CoD:4 and Halo3 and I am glad(albeit not surprised) to hear that out of someone else. All of the things that you mentioned in your little rant are things that must be changed in FPS games if they are ever going to achieve true realism. All that said i still believe they are true milestones in gaming and also that all of this will be a mute subject when Resistance 2 comes out (for PS3 CoD players). 60 players online, 1-2 player campaign, 1-8 player second(and different)campaign these are all things that Halo and CoD:4 don't even come close too.
Sounds like Jose is a noob at Halo 3. :) Pretty common to hear complaints from Halo 3 players that suck.
I tried Halo 3 and just could not get into the "Halo" physics. I prefer the much more realistic COD4 physics and weapons.
However, COD4 has probably one of the worst lobby systems I have seen from a next-gen multiplayer enabled game. If you put a Halo 3 like lobby on COD4 then you would have gaming perfection.
as is the replay value of the multiplayer online, which acts like a single-player campaign. The action is intense too. Halo 3 just feels like Halo 2 with some weapons modifications; it was great 3 or 4 years ago (like Really Great), but the FPS genre has evolved since then. Without COD4, Halo 3 would've been the top FPS of 2007.
Seriously COD 4 is just better... I freaking traded halo for COD 4.
Thats one way to do it. Another is to not be poor, and buy both, since they are both excellent.
even though I don't have the game Halo 3 was superly hyped and had nothing to offer but then again Call of Duty 4 is just set in the modern times nothing new.
I played the COD4 Beta, it didn't impress me at all, I don't like the idea of an AI helicopter and airstrikes doing all the work for ya either.
Halo 3 is in it for the long run, Call of Duty 4 from what I see will eventually die off once something new hits or when the Halo 3 Auto Update and new DLC finally gets released.
Let alone COD4 does not support guests, and has no co-op.
Key word BETA. The full game is awesome i just dont feel that a person who hasnt played through the REAL game and all the multiplayer gametypes and extras that come with it really has much of a solid oppinion.
Halo is a bit over-hyped. I dont care what multiplayer modes and/or tools it has, I care about gameplay first. COD4 nailed it.
The only thing missing from COD 4 was CO-OP.
Cod4 all the way. Halo 2 and 3 are simply over rated by far.
"Another is to not be poor" ROTFLMAO Instant Classic
Halo3 is more of a run and gun. COD4 is more tactical. I switch back and forth constantly.
Both games are quality shooters.
Halo 3 just felt like an expansion pack for Halo 2.
I'm pretty sure most people that complain about Halo 3 never even played it. The fact is the COD4 is a fantastic game but to easy to rack up kills. That game is all about camping spots. Halo 3 on the other hand is all about skill and definitely not for the weak. Getting a 50 in Halo 3 takes great skill and great teamwork. Getting a high rank in COD4 takes nothing more than just continuous playing. Halo 3 is still the best competitive fps. Nothing else comes close. I'll take on anybody with a good heated debate about Halo 3 vs. COD4. Anybody?
Call of Duty 4 hands down
as i said B4.. its a tie.. Halo has WAY more features then COD4... Vehicles, game types, 4 player coop story, map editor.. which make up for the games silly gameplay..
COD4 has WAY less features.. but the action, chaos and almost perfect gameplay cant be over looked.. so i declare a TIE in my opinion..
hell they even scored about the same
CoD4 is extremely entertaining but I wish it had that Multiplayer movie save thing that Halo 3 has because sometimes you wish you could save a clip of that really great sniper shot from 30 yards away to watch over and over.
