Halo 4 Multiplayer: Bringing the best of Call of Duty and Battlefield

OXM UK- O'Connor's take on the competition was a breath of fresh air during a period of more than usually mindless headline-level sniping, and thankfully, that's reflected in his game. See, while Activision and EA were hoiking rock-filled verbal snowballs at one another, 343 was perched on the sidelines, studying their habits with an eagle's eye. The result is a multiplayer component that's as intent on immediate, explosive gratification as Call of Duty, yet as mindful of the bigger tactical picture as Battlefield. Congratulations, Halo 4. You're the one they didn't see coming. (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

And this is the problem with Halo 4. It's bringing the best of COD and Battlefield. Why is it doing that, when it already had its own unique experience? I played Halo when I wanted to play Halo, not because I want to play COD or Battlefield with aliens and space marines.

Halo 4 doesn't play like either, while having the best of both. Halo 4 is unique because of just that.

***"I played Halo when I wanted to play Halo, not because I want to play COD or Battlefield with aliens and space marines."***

I WISH publishers and devs would see this is how gamers feel. If I want to play CoD, I'll play CoD. The reason why I'm playing your game is because it's not CoD!

You've been talking about a lot of EA games lately.

Are you really trying to compare a game like halo to a game like BF3? Do you know how stupid that sounds if that's indeed what you are doing???

I did not read the entire article (lost interest) but to sit there and say BF shits on halo is a stupid comment because these games are NOT comparable. Just because they both involve shooting stuff doesn't mean it can be compared. Your comment makes you look stupid because you are comparing apples to oranges.

Edit: and obviously I'm talking to your stupid ass because I replied to YOUR post.

In other words, correcting MOH:WF's flaws?

Halo's always been on a high pedestal of its own, and respected on its own. 342 did take some cues from both popular shooters to make the best popular multiplayer to date.

Pop culture will most likely use BF & Cod Halo all in the same sentence. To describe and compare the most popular shooters of the gen.

Btw I DO NOT miss the countless arguing EA and Activision had last year.

Next year MW4 and BF4 get released and they'll talk trash to each once again.

I'm avoiding the internet if that starts up again that's ridiculous.
