In the battle between Halo and Call of Duty (CoD), there is no battle. The Halo series pounds the Call of Duty series into the ground in the most important category: imagination.
Yeah Halo is the better game as far as Multiplayer and Campaign goes imo.
lol @ all these comments, I personally prefer halo but c'mon!
Campaign, I dunno. COD4 will smack any Halo campaign there is. Although the newer ones, I'd take Halo's story over them. Now gameplay wise, COD sucks since 4 and is the same thing....but I dunno if I'd say Halo can compete with any COD single player in that department. They just have better game play with or without story in single player. Now multiplayer, Halo 4 beats newer CODS for sure. Halo 3 most definitely. COD4 though is a bit better in multiplayer for sure.
"COD4 will smack any Halo campaign there is" Not sure if serious...
IMO Black Ops 2 is a much better multiplayer game than Halo 4. Faster action, score streaks, greater variety of playmodes. I have tried to like the Halo multiplayer. I've played and played, thinking it's an acquired taste but I just can't get into it.
"Better than COD" isn't really saying much. Battlefield is better than both and it's a year old (except for campaign, unfortunately).
CoD's alright, but it's super boring. Halo keeps me interested!
I agree. I cannot say which is better, as it is an opinion. As far as FPS games go, Halo wins for me hands down. The story, universe, gameplay and now graphics from Halo 4. Never cared much for CoD, but they look quite enjoyable. All I can say is that I loved CoD 4 (who didn't), and that I am not well equipped as far as knowledge of CoD goes. To each their own. Halo for me.
Master Chief > ALL
I love these debates Battlefield or CoD? Halo or CoD? They're all really different games. It's comparing apples and oranges. Personally I enjoy the gameplay of Halo more, but it's an entirely different shooter compared to CoD
Apples or Oranges? Oh damn it, you beat me to it. xD
I agree, Halo and CoD are very different shooters. It's difficult for me to say which I prefer. Probably Halo with friends, and CoD when running solo. Halo is great for co-op MP and campaign.
The last of US or halo? F**k shooters! Way to many!!
if CoD didn't have ridiculous lag, the online portion would be very fun CoD campaign's are always fun Halo, haven't played too much, but I didn't care for it. I played campaign only for Halo 1 and ODST. 1 was ok in it's time, ODST was definitely stupid. As for the online part to Halo, I haven't and will never play 4, it feels like there are no player weight characteristics at all. And it seems it takes way too many bullets to kill someone. And in the end, Battlefield is a much better FPS than both of them. And for best online shooter, that would go to Socom, excluding Socom 4.
Ps3 fans will disagree because they're stuck playing cod
I'm playing Battlefield 3 and Uncharted 3. I don't know what kind of PS3 you're talking about buddy =). I'll be enjoying my multiple exclusives in 2013 also while you play...games that are already available on the PS3. PS3 players can troll you back. Good day.
I'm a ps3 fan. I also just bought Halo 4 yesterday. It's weird how that works right? How someone can be a fan of one thing, but also be a fan of something else? It's almost as if you don't have to tie yourself down to one single electronic product and defend it as if it was your lover...
I know right. I only own a PS3, but I'm man enough to admit that I am very much jealous of the Xbox for Halo.
i own 360/ps3/pc and i don't like halo or cod and i think ps3 owners have KZ2/3 uncharted2/3 BF3 etc. to enjoy MP @riderz1337 couldn't say it better
But according to your logic, multiplatform games don't count and Xbox 360 only owners enjoy just 3 games, what happened to that bro? Now bf3, a multiplatform game, counts? You're making my head spin.
you blocked me because you know you have no answer for what i said when you are the one who PM me in first place and don't spin my words i never said MP games don't count i said MS only have 3 games and keep milk them with no other new ip's which is true ..spin it ...play around it but it's the truth no need to own xbox360 when you can get eveything it have on ps3/pc plus the huge numbers of pc/ps3 exclusives xbox360 have nothing but halo/gears/forza so what alse you could brag about ??!! USA sales ...from vgchartes lolXD
Your argument is flawed simply based on quantity > quality. However, I prefer Halo, Gears, Fable and Forza over all of Sony's exclusives. Just because a game is exclusive doesn't mean it's a great game. Just look at titles like Steel Battalion: HA or sorcery for the Move. There have been plenty of games from Sony that didn't generate high reviews or High sales. Socom, Twisted Metal etc. You are also ignoring the experience that can be had while playing a multiplatform game. I will ALWAYS play my multiplats over XBL for a number of reasons...Achievements, better online community, more robust, party chat etc. Also, I own Kinect, so games like Madden, Mass Effect 3 and Skyrim give me a more immerse experience and the option to experience a game in a different way. So I do agree with you Ezz2013 that MS's pumps out their heavy hitters more frequently (and why not since they generate millions and millions of dollars because people obviously want them)then Sony pumps out theirs, but Sony is also focusing on less then average rated and non selling exclusives. Bottom line is quality > quantity. No spin, just truth.
do you have any idea what you are talking about ??!!! sony have both 2008 GOTY was MGS4 2009 GOTY uncharted 2 2010 GOTY god of war 3 and RDR 2011 uncharted 3 and skyrim 2012 journey and TWD do you see an xbox exclusive in there ??!!! no xbox exclusive won GOTY awards ..NON since 2007 you talk about quality 2008 MGS4 94%/ LBP 95% metascore 2009 uncharted 2 96% 2010 god of war 3 92% 2011 uncharted 3 92% / LBP 2 92% 2012 journey 92% show me a xbox360 "exclusive" that score higher than those games in each year of those years??!!??!! i could bring you ALOT more of 80+% 90+% metascore ps3 exclusives but why bother when you know for a fact ..you can't back your self up sony have quality & quantity and their games sell very well over 2m to 9m following vgchartes to say ps3 exclusives don't sell is something lol worthy and even then vgchartes still show that ps3 exclusives sell very well mins very few games and also what games on MS console that sell well other than gears/halo/forza and maybe fable and MS as xbox owner my self sure as hell don't have quality nor quantity over sony ..not even close No spin, just truth. (bring the fairy disagrees)
Not really. I'll never own an Xbox but from vids and word of mouth and Halo on PC - I firmly believe that Halo is better.
Don't be getting attached to that bubble!!
I preffer the campaign of Black Ops 2 to Halo 4. MP wise Halo 4's better, but that's not saying much since I hate BO2 MP. I like Modern Warfare's MP more. The only other Halo i've played was Reach... which was awful.
Thats common knowledge...
looks at title NO DUH!!!!
Some mornings I feel like waffles, and other mornings I feel like french toast. Depends on my mood. Yuuuuup! :/
Blatant troll topic.
And people who argue about Halo or Call of Duty are obviously inferior to those that don't.
Although I think COD has hit a stalemate, it is a far better game than Halo, as Halo has also hit a stalemate, but the difference is Halo hit the stalemate by Halo 2, whereas COD only hits it's strides this gen. & hit that wall with the series highlight in World at War. Both are still doing the same ol' same ol', but COD does it with far more style from it's butter smooth framerate (60fps), as opposed to Halo still being stuck on 30fps, not that that is the dealbreaker, but fact is real world weapons are far more exciting to use in a game, as they have a real world basis to model them off in regards to sound & such, whereas the made up sounds & effects of Halo's "alien" weapons are FAR less convincing....I mean, I truly don't enjoy using any of the alien guns in Halo & much prefer using MC's default assault rifle....in fact, I hate running out of ammo & having to raid the gay wiggles looking aliens for there crappy putzy guns. Insomniac know how to do far better alien type weapons than Bungie or 343, as Resistance's alien guns kicked serious a$$. Probably one of the many reasons I prefer Resistance to Halo (& yes, I have 360 & all Halo's bar Reach) In fact, when FUSE fails, as I know it will, I hope to god Sony snap up Insomniac, so they can refocus & get Ratchet back to being the best platformer bar none, & we can get another Resistance as a soon after launch PS4 game. No question COD is better than Halo, it's not an opinion thing, it's not a sales thing, it is a fact thing....technically COD beats out Halo in every single department...... And to solidify my point, Bungie walked away through boredom of the brand, as they are such a great developer, & are artists, they knew they had overstayed there welcome, they were acutely aware as an artistically talented team that the series was now just a franchise, so they moved on to escape what Treyarch, IW & such have now been caught in since WAW & MW. Many may disagree with me, heck no, they will dissagree with me......but that don't change the fact, & the fact is that I am right, so shut up, suck it up & get on with it. I mean, I bought BlOps2 at launch, & only recently put the online multiplayer on, & i thought I was burnt out & over it, but seriously, COD's online is quite simply in a class of it;s own as far as playability, awesome maps, sick guns & the rest goes....Truly awesome. Halo is great online, no doubt, but it is just lifted straight from Halo 2 (the pinnacle of multiplayer for the series & nearly 3 gen. old).
I see your novel is coming along nicely.
How could you even start to compare the two? If it wasn't for Halo the matchmaking, true skill and much of the playlist COD depends on wouldn't exist.
Yet mp was done better on PC long before any console games. Stop acting like halo started it all, it came from a pc environment. As for gameplay, Halo is a lot more floaty, maybe MC is high. Cod black ops 2 is the best online for COD. But BF3 is Awesome as well. Just depends on what you like.
cod 4/5/6 needed skills , but after that it's all about luck , that's why i stopped playing them , halo sucks too , all play the same way , it's all about reaction which all games need it and weapons , i really dunno why people still play it when they see a lot better games , battlefield 3 is a game worth playing instead of wasting time on halo ... i would kill my self if i seen someone playing it infront of me xD , it's old as hell , this article released very late to be interested , to be specific 5 years late ! but now both sucks , both need to end and move on to something new ...
Tea is obviously better than coffee and no I'm not a Tetley fanboy before u ask, I buy Nescafe too!!
I don't have any grounds for comment about Halo, being a PS3 gamer, but Call of Duty has definitely gone downhill in recent years. In Modern Warfare, World at War and Modern Warfare 2, you needed a degree of skill to succeed (excusing the noob tube/OMA exploiters in MW2). With the 'just okay' Black Ops, underwhelming Modern Warfare 3, and the laggy, broken mess that is Black Ops II (again, from a PS3 perspective. On Xbox 360, this may not be the case), little skill is needed. You don't need to be good because you have cheap Deathstreaks, death-doesn't-matter Support Streaks and automatic revenge spawning (don't deny it Treyarch; we ALL know it happens) to depend on. By making CoD 'accessible', to abusive, disrespectful, foul-mouthed youths, the developers have dumbed down everything that made the series enjoyable/challenging in the first place. Now, the only time I'll play Call of Duty now is if friends are online. Otherwise, I'll play anything else instead of it.
Neither CoD or Halo have sparked my interest since Halo 2 and Modern Warfare 1.
How were you not totally pumped for Halo 3?
I had played so much Halo 2 by that point I was over it. Same thing with GTA3. Played so much GTA3 that I couldn't get into any of them after that.
Halo 4 definitely has a better multiplayer over COD
They both fail.
Call of Duty is like MCdonalds. It feels good but you know its made of crap. Halo is more like a high quality burger and it feels good.
If we were comparing quality then Halo would win.
Both games are subpar in my opinion, people act like Halo broke the mold with fps titles which it clearly didn't, maybe for consoles (although that's debatable considering games such as goldeneye before it) and it certainly did not break the mold with multiplayer gaming (ask the many games before it on pc that were innovating more) and call of duty originally was a fantastic franchise, everything after WAW was poor (I enjoyed black ops 2 however just because it tried something different) The reality is this, if I was in a situation where I could only ever play one game again for the rest of my life neither of these franchises would be near the top of my list, however its hard to rate one over the other but I would pick halo for the simple fact that multiplayer is more challenging imo.
battlefield 3 poops on both of them!
IF UR 15 OR ACT LIKE UR 15. U LIKE HALO....COD IF UR A HARDCORE GAMER...OVER ALL..
ARMA 2 if you are not 15.
yes I like fried cod with chips
