What are opinions without comparisons? When we review stuff, we tend to pit multiple products against each other in performance test shootouts. Why not do the same thing with games?
frontlines fuel of war is better than halo 3?? wow.. this is defenetly a fanboy article.
Why cant people leave halo alone? Its good at what it does, why do people have to keep on hating on it? If you like a different game, then go play a different game.
wow crysis worse than halo3???? bs i say
I agree. Both suck.
Crysis is one of the best shooters ive ever played. the story sucks??? prob some of the best story driven gameplay ive played. it feels like a rambo movie, but with a super suit. drfanitly better than halo 3
"prob some of the best story driven gameplay ive played. it feels like a rambo movie..." Yes, thats exactely why it sucks.
Anything is better than Halo.
i agree so much
Show's what kind of hater you are! But I can find millions upon millions that disagree with you. That is why Halo is the Pheneom that it is today. And nothing, absolutely nothing you haters could ever say or do can change that! LOL
I completely agree with 3.2. Millions of people love it, calm down. There is a reason I still play it all the time online with my buddies, even after spending a lot of time with Cod4, Gears, Warhawk, and a lot of others. Also I don't mind reading news that is thought out at all. But this seems to me like its just someone who absolutly loves or hates every game he plays.
lol i dont think halo is as good as its made out to be, its jus so overhyped. but the article is so stupid. The darkness better than halo?? crysis worse than halo?? and theres some games in there that shouldnt even be compared to halo like patapon. articles like this have to stop being submitted on n4g. i have to go through 10 to 15 articles on here until i find a article thats has any substance or merit. come on people. keep sh*t like this out
Halo slaggers are ignorant of why people rave about it.It's easy not to like a game even if you have played it but not getting Halo's brilliance is because people lack understanding of what makes a FPS better than the next.Halo might not be your style of FPS and that's fair enough but it does things within it's sandbox that other FPS seem unaware of at this time.Something as polished as COD for example while beautifully polished and incredibly solid in play, plays out generally the same each time.Enjoyed COD but the desire to countlessly go back to it time and time again just doesn't exist like it does when you embrace a Halo title - same too with just about all FPS.Playing just the once does not qualify a person to talk down about Halo.Most game players play only the once through before moving onto a next game and that's half the problem to why people don't see any difference from one FPS to the next.Anyway this my opinion is about the campaign side of Halo. Preference to multiplayer FPS is a different beast altogether and i can better understand why people might choose COD or GOW over Halo even though Halo fans might wonder why that was. Halo3 is better than the rest for reasons some people will never know and while this is just an opinion, it's one that would most certainly change were something better to come along.
And please if your going to disagree, why not explain why this is.Enjoying a game over enough isn't enough to explaining why it's a better game.Mechanics and superior structuring is what makes a game as strong as what Halo has always been even if you don't dig the universe.
damn.. that other post you made was awesome. ps3 fanboys will always hit dissagree, as long as its not on ps3 theyll hate it.
i believe the only thing strong about halo is its overhyped halo is boring and in my OPINION gears is better in ever way
edit: Enjoying a game over another isn't enough to explaining why it's a better game
I think COD4 would rank above it if Front lines and all those other games are all ranked above except Crysis.
"Crysis is a laggy, boring, rote snorefest"!! did the guy even play Crysis? halo 3 is a complete joke compared to it. this guy really doesn't know what he's talking about. Dark sector and gears of war can't be compared to halo, they third person shooters, halo is first person. This guy is a pure moron even though i agree with him for a couple of things.
lol crysis is better than all of the games named there hahahahahahahahaha especilally halo sry for bad english :P ----------------------------- ------------------------------- ----------- the Boss has spoken PeAce OuT
is Halo 3 some kind of God like game that all other games must be compared to. fanboy article indeed. Crysis > Halo 3 not opinion, just facts
They fail so hard.
it doesn't offer any explanation. halo is an amazing FPS and is well deserving of the scores it got. I'd say that halo 3 was one of the greatest games released last year. And I hope all the people disagree with me, have actually played the entire game so they can offer great criticism as to what makes the game bad.
It's not that Halo3 is bad as much as it's just not as good as so many people make it out to be. I played through it, and I enjoyed it, but I don't consider it to be that great of a game overall. BioShock and CoD4 were both much better FPS titles in numerous ways, and many other titles are on-par with Halo in my opinion. Maybe it's because I never played the first two until just last summer, but I just can't understand why so many people seem to love this game as much as they do.
But when I saw games like mario galaxy get great scores I was shocked. (i own the game btw) the only reason I think people gave that game good scores is because it's a good looking wii title and because it's mario. It's not at all a great game. It's average, wonderfully average, good graphics (for the wii) lobotomized fun for 20 min, but it gets old quick since much of it repeats (jump, jump higher, solve simple problem). No challenge (c'mon, having 5 lives in the starting area that reset when entering or exiting a door?), and no real story, or replay value. I expect that this feeling is because I never played mario 64, I had goldeneye and mario kart instead. People that never played the original halo when it was new(which isn't many due to the ps2 being the console of choice) will never understand just how amazing the title was. That has a very large effect on how we conceive a game. Many people hated it because it was such a great game not on the ps2, or not on the pc. Cod4 to me is not half as good as halo to me, I'd rather take tf2 for pc over any currently released fps, because that's what I was raised on, and because the gameplay elements are just so much more tactical and exciting. Cod 4 is camp camp camp, halo is new and exciting every game. Also, I find the online, and machinima capabilities are amazing. People think games are just games, thats how I felt about cod4, but when playing in forge I think of halo 3 as more of art, then just a game. So much to do, so many abilities, so many fun and exciting new things. I returned cod4 because I found the game boring after playing online, trying out all the perks, playing the same maps. But I'm still not bored of the new and amazing game types from the halo 3 community and the tomfoolery of forge, then to top it off I can share those files with friends. Shooting people gets bored griffball doesn't. anyways, tldr version: To me halo is the closest thing to mods but at the ease of a button. I understand that a lot of people like playing games where they do not have to think, and for that I can understand why they like games like gears and cod 4 more. But halo will always be innovative and new, now, and in 3 years.
I disagree simply because it is a good game but deserving of massive amounts of perfect 10's.... No. It was short. It did not finish the fight and there was nothing in it that absolutely "Wow'd" me. Not just me but both my roommates felt the same. My roommate returned his copy after beating it... All in all it is a good FPS. Good online game and fun when your not teamed up with a bunch of kids/douches. I messed around with every aspect I could find like level designing(I was hoping for more, As in actually making maps like UT offers and not just moving bikes and boxes around...) and the game offered me nothing I wanted. So too me it was bland, The chief is not that cool and the stupid cutscenes where cortana keeps cutting in got old quick to me... Snipey Shotty's got old quick too. I found no replay in it. But thats me. You asked for someone to back it up well... ok. UT3 was light years better, COD4 was light years better and Gears was light years better. For a single player Bioshock was light years better and I have more fun online playing Warhawk then I ever did Halo... just an honest opinion. I can understand why people like it. Its a skill based game. Its Sci Fi and a lot of people like that ala Mass Effect (I dislike Sci Fi as well so even less points for me) I never saw anything in halo that warranted a "Perfect" score of any kind. Fans are fans and got exactly what they wanted so to them it is a 10 but to me someone who has only played halo and halo 2 at friends houses until this installment... I was not impressed... Sorry. Edit: To me perfect means something new. Something innovative and something fresh... It didn't offer this "I" felt so hence no perfect score... Even for hardcore fans I dont think it offered enough but thats just me. I have not made a blanket staement like "It deserves X and it is X" I only want people to know this is "my" opinion and not me being a fanboy. I love all consoles and own and play them all... I just didn't like Halo3.
The only one I can comment on is UT3. After playing a lot of Halo3 and UT3 I'll say that I enjoy UT3 a lot more. Halo3 feels like you're running in water. You can't convince people of this though. UT3 will always be considered the lesser shooter.
Not running in water, running on the moon. You can't jump that well in water. Comparatively, UT3 feels like you're wearing Powerisers
A pc gamer talking about how much he doesn’t like the game that many credit with the decline of pc gaming? This is news how? Pc only fps players don’t like halo we get it, I think it's time to move on. Many of us prefer halo over most other fps games just live with it. I have played ever notable fps game since doom and I would take halo over them all in a heart beat. Yes I have played half life two, wanna see a screen shot of what I have bought on steam? Yes I have played all the UT games, wanna see a pic of my program files? Yes I have a gaming pc and yes I have all the right goodies to enhance my pc fps experience. Yet I will still take halo on my 360 over crysis, halflife 2 or ut3 on my 3k gaming machine that has a mouse and keyboard. I have played ever great pc FPS and yes in my opinion halo with its silly console control kills them all. Why you ask? Balance and attention to detail. You drop me in the middle of a map with any gun and I will be able to hold my own. I never loose due to having a cheap pc, a lower dpi mouse or picking a server of all mutual friends who play professionally. PC gamers can buy more kills which is just rubbish in my opinion. I remember getting quake 3 arena and then buying a geforce ddr and seeing my kill count nearly double. Halo was and still is the only online fps to offer a contained, controlled and balanced environment where EVERYONE has an equal chance of winning. Why can’t I just be entitled to my opinion? Halo hate is getting so old at this point. If so many of you hate halo so much then why do you spend SOOOO much time posting about it? It seems like many of you have an axe to grind. I hated lair but you don’t see me popping up in every lair post do you? You guys are not content with just not liking halo, you have to try and ruin it for everyone else.
Er, what you're saying is that console shooters are better than PC shooters. If you think Halo is the best shooter, you need to play COD4 on a console. And timesplitters, which rules. Halo was great, but is now average. Competent but average and dated.
Shankle you need to learn to read or at least learn to process the info you read correctly. I never said console FPS games are better than pc fps games. I said I prefer halo over ALL other fps games. I bought bioshock for pc, cod 4 for pc, stalker for pc, fear for pc, half life ep 1 and 2 for pc and I tend to prefer playing fps games on my pc. I love pc gaming but I love halo more. Shankle let me check out your halo 3 stats so I can see if you are any good, maybe you suck at halo and that is why you don’t have a good time playing it. Ohh wait, that’s kind of strange, you don’t.... have .... a live tag?? Only psn huh? Your opinion is obviously gold. Next time why not try playing the game you are going to knock before arguing with me? Whats next, are you going to start your own car mag where you review cars you never get to drive?
well said viruse, I feel the exact same way and agree completely. Hate needs to stop for halo. just because you don't understand why people like it so much, doesn't give others the right to bash it. Most of the people who do, never even play through the entire game.
Are saying that you can't do that with the other shooters? Is it because the other games have a slightly higher learning curve? When you're running as slow as you are in Halo of coarse it's easier to jump in.
when i think of halo , i just want to destroy the first xbot i see...Halo didnt do anything for videogames it was just a bunch of idiots that wanted go against the playstation....Still fail losers...
"If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." Well, um, er, at least he liked God of War: Chains of Olympus, which he rightfully points out as an incredible game. That's SOMETHING, I guess.
really frontlines? dont get me wrong i have a passionate hate for the halo franchise, ive always been a playstation guy but i have played halo just like pretty much everyone else in the U.S. and it defiantly has addicting online multiplayer and lan parties with your friends are fantastic too and i dont think that there are many better shooters out there outside of cod 4 and a few others
There are so many things wrong with this article, most overtly, half of the games on the list arent shooters. On top of that, its unrealistic to compare pc gaming to console gameing (far different experiences). And the fact that 'The Darkness' is even compared to games like Gears, UT3, and Halo 3 makes this article that much more of a joke.
COD4 is better than Halo 3!
Hype sold most copies of Halo 3. It looks so bad in the eyes of others because the marketing made it sound like it would be perfect in all ways. When it didnt and was just an alright game it made itself look bad.
you know whats funny and believe me on this the fanboys who love halo 3 refuse to play call of duty 4 its like some psychological barrier that they can't take that call of duty 4 is better.
Uh, no. A lot of Halo owners play COD as well, like me. I enjoy both.
First, the SP was merely okay - the problem was that the difficulty kept spiking and dropping so that one minute the game was tough, then it was impossible, then it was borely easy. So the SP was only decent - about a 7. But the MP (which I don't play much) was great so that is what made Halo 3 great. Co play and the features added made for a great value. But if you don't do MP then rent it, beat it on medium and return it.
You know what else is worse than Halo 3? The thought process that went into approving this "news item."
on Halo will never stop.
