Which Halo Is The Best Halo?

Game Informer - It's a simple question. Which Halo game is the best Halo game? Obviously, the original Halo holds a special place in every Halo fan's heart. I had a permanent LAN setup exclusively for Halo at my house. My parents really loved all the late night yelling matches that accompanied every match. (Halo, PC, Xbox, Xbox 360)

The first Halo is the best. When the flood came into play it changed it from a simple game to a classic game. Hang em High created a lot of memorable moments for my friends and I.

That's probably still my favourite moment in all the Halo games, but I prefer H3 overall.

Halo4 is the best I'll be playing it come midnight tonight.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   910d ago
Yeah Halo 1 is easily the best game, everything was epic and I loved the story.
Halo 2 is a close second though for me.
IAMERROR  +   910d ago
Too much backtracking IMO, Halo 3 has to be my favorite. Awesome campaign, amazing multiplayer, and great forge (at the time). All the Halos are quite good imo
i think halo 19 will be the best.

I think I played more Halo 2 multiplayer than any of the others. Good times, good maps and good mechanics.
Captain Qwark 9  +   910d ago
for me its.....

1. halo 2
2. halo CE
3. halo 3
4. reach

1. halo 3
2. halo CE
3. halo 2
4. reach

so in conclusion, as a total package, halo CE. as multiplayer only, Halo 2. as single player only, halo 3.

ill find out where halo 4 lands tonight but from the vids it looks like it may take number one in both spots and overall, just depends on if it can beat halo 2's legendary maps, only game ive ever played where every map was good and it had headlong

Captain Qwark 9  +   910d ago

what are you talking about lol???? it had system link and splitscreen and its mp was huuuuuuuuuuge. they even remade some of its maps for halo 2, including one of its most popular maps of all blood gulch
Slugg3r  +   910d ago
Oh the good times when me and my buddies used to play Halo 4 players splitscreen on a 26" tv. All the controller cords were so tangled, that we had about foot of a cord each (thank god for the wireless controllers novadays). We had a blast despite all this though.

Halo CE on the PC was the first Halo to have online multiplayer.

i hear ya lol except we went all out, not just 4 players. halo was pretty big around where im from. we had 4 tvs, 4 xbox's and 4 peeps per tv almost once a month from the time it came out until halo 2 lol despite the crappy amount of work it was to set up and pissed off parents from the noise and chords but it was all worth it lol

at least i think thats what we did, according to kraut it didnt even have mp so i could be just imagining all those times
awi5951  +   909d ago
@ krautgamer lol

Yeah i had a ethernet hub and me and my friends had 16 player matches every sunday it was so kick ass. My buddie had 2 tv's set up i had the xbox computer monitor converter and we turned the 2 LCD monitors into Tv's for the other 8 to play on.

For me, so far it's the first Halo. I still haven't played Halo 4 yet so writing a "Which Halo Is The Best Halo? article is a few days per-mature.

Will let you know in a few days once I finish Halo 4.
MYSTERIO360  +   910d ago
Halo 1 then halo 4
MYSTERIO360  +   909d ago
For those of you how think halo 4 isn't the best in the series why not?????????????
Spectator1  +   910d ago
Halo Wars.
Hueynewton2012  +   910d ago

awi5951  +   904d ago

CE did the most for the FPS genre out of the series, so I'd probably just have to give it to the original.

But if I'm judging every game by today's standards then it has to be Halo Reach. It's probably the most well-rounded game in the series, and easily has more content in it than any other.
etowntwo  +   910d ago
Halo 3 was the best, especially co-op with 3 friends,

Halo Reach single player was pretty epic too.
Irishguy95  +   910d ago
Halo 1 is overrated. 2 is better. 2 takes flak for it's ending and people have a problem playing as Arbiter for some reason. Halo 2 also had the best level in the entire series, Delta Halo. Not to mention it's multiplayerr is far superior, people again had problems with 'changes'. Such as the Pistol no longer being overpowered. Halo 1's single player level design was not great either.

Story wise Halo 2 follows Coventant invasion on earth, who and what an Arbiter is, what Halo is, the coventant being misled, Elites versus Brutes/Civil war among the coventant, the flood.

It has the most plot development out of all the Halo's. But people hate the fact that it's in the middle.

Halo 3, I was a bit disappointed in the campaign, I loved two of it's levels, Tsavo highway and the one where you land on the Arc. Other than that, i'm not fond. Halo 2 had better maps than 3 but eh...i'd still give 3 the crown for multiplayer

You know

Its hard to say right?

HALO CE is what gave you the first "feeling" of aw.

HALO 2 was the first MP of its kind on Consoles

HALO 3 Refined it all

I give a 2 part response, HALO 2 is the best MP and HALO CE the Best first exp, But over all Because HALO 2 has both in combo - story and MP, and it had the most to lose if it was horrible the HALO franchise would have taking a huge ding, it was the risk taker game, but turned out great and has the greatest overall Impact

HALO 2 wins.

My favorite so far is Halo 3. The memories i have playing with my friends are some of my favorite. It may not be the best game but the enjoyment i got out of chilling while doing killtaculars with my friends was better than the memories i have playing the other ones. I haven't played halo 4 yet but im hoping it can produce the same effect.
ronin4life  +   910d ago
Halo CE Is my favorite. The following games became more and more corridor based, (especially 2 and 3) and I never played the online multiplayer so that doesn't come into play for me.

Halo: Reach when playing 4 player co-op on Legendary!
Cajun Chicken  +   910d ago
Halo 1 for sure. Even played great when it came to Anniversary edition.

Followed by Halo 3, then Reach.

#1 One of the very few games I wanted to play until I beat it.
dazreah  +   910d ago
I'm gonna get some hate for this but my second fav after Halo CE is ODST, just loved the atmosphere in that game.
Summons75  +   910d ago
They each hold something with me. CE for the single player and bringing me into Xbox. 2 for the multiplayer and all the good memories with new friends over Xbox live. 3 because of the midnight launch I experienced and playing straight through till the game was done. Odst for the soundtrack and different take on a halo game. Reach or it's ending. Can't wait for new memories with halo 4
Chupa-Chupa  +   910d ago
I have to go with Halo: combat evolved thus far. However, I haven't played 4, and 3 was not far behind evolved. I enjoyed 3 as much as evolved, but of course It was just the thing when the xbox was out. It was like, whoa look at that waterfall...

TXIDarkAvenger  +   910d ago
Overall, I would say Halo 3.

The multiplayer experience was amazing, tons of hours put into custom/ranked games. It's hard to say really, I love all of them and I'm not even a hardcore Halo fan. Halo 1 is claimed to have the best story and most people say Halo 2 had the best multiplayer but in comparison with Halo 3, its really hard to say, they come pretty close. Halo 3: ODST was alright and I didn't have as much fun with Reach then with the previous Halo games. Almost forgot Halo Wars, though it wasn't an FPS, it was actually a really good RTS game for a console.

I can't wait for Halo 4 tomorrow, a lot of people say its just as good as Halo 3.

Dlacy13g  +   910d ago
I gotta say the one Halo game that has stuck with me the most is .... Halo Wars. I still to this day go back and play the multiplayer. I so wish MS would green light a Halo Wars 2.

In my order of preference:

1) Halo Wars
2) Halo Reach
3) Halo 3
4) Halo CE (Aniversary edtion is my prefered version)
5) Halo 2
6) Halo ODST

Halo 4??? I am sure it will rank up there but won't know for sure until tomorrow.

I can say for sure, Halo has made one of best Movies of a video game IP I have ever seen. Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn was a great surprise. Well done and hope this gives them steam for a full Hollywood Movie. I would have happily paid $10-$15 to sit in a movie theatre and watch that full movie.
palaeomerus  +   910d ago
1.) Halo 3
2.) ODST
3.) Halo: CE
4.) Halo: Reach
5.) Halo Wars
6.) Halo 2 (still good though!)

And I'll have to figure out where 4 fits in there when it gets here and I've played through it.
SOULJER  +   910d ago
For me it's halo 2 because of the multiplayer. Because serious who really plays halo for the single player, and story.
edonus  +   909d ago
For me Halo Reach was the best so far.

It told the story more fluent than HALO 1,2&3

I loved the armor abilities I did miss dual wielding though.

It also had good variation like the flight section and Firefight was perfect.

The multiplayer and co op just great and a tighter forge.
BlaqMagiq24  +   909d ago
Halo 2 hands down.
animegamingnerd  +   909d ago
favorite from top to bottom
halo 3

halo 2
halo odst
halo wars
