If Halo 4 isn't like Halo 2 it will be the end Halo.
Halo 3 didn't impress because it was too much like Halo 2. Reach was the true next gen Halo that Halo 3 should of been. Still with that being said, Halo multiplayer has grown very old because of the fact Halo 2 was the only Xbox Live game to play at the time and little kids have taken it over. Only reason to have and/or play Halo anymore is for the campaign.
Halo 2 had better maps and weapon balancing than Halo 3 by a large margin. I want Halo 4 to have a classic fun feel in multiplayer again
Halo 2 probably had the better MP, but Halo 3 had Guardian. That was probably the best map I've ever played in an MP game. Halo Reach was, in comparison, not a very good game.
Though i loved halo reach very much but i hope the MP in halo 4 is more like halo2/3 and less like reach
Are you joking? Reach is complete crap when compared to any other Halo game in almost every possible way. Reach is ok, but for a Halo game, it pretty bad.
Halo can only get better with time, due to the fact that a huge chunk of the fanbase has migrated over to Call of Duty. And that "huge chunk" is all of the kids. I hope the Halo devs can have the understanding and maturity to improve the series in light of this fact since it is mostly loyal fans who are still playing Halo, not the casual-shooter kids.
What's wrong with kids? Are you judging an entire demographic based on what video game they play? The more casual the player the better. Who wants to play against people who are good at a shooter?
i hate the whole "kid" sh*t too. i think its more a matter of grown ass men pissed they cant beat a 12 year old. everybody has to start somewhere we were all kids once too, hell if a kid can beat me, kudos to him, i haved prob 20 years gaming experience on him so thats impressive
It's more like their completely immature, regardless of age, and are thus subject to be called a "kid." If they're 12 and they act 12, they're kids. If they're 30 and they act 12, they're still kids. People are so hung up on the word itself that they forget it doesn't have to refer to an age group. It can also mean a mental state. And, unfortunately, far too many of even the "adult" gamers are in the mindframe of a child, if only when it comes to games.
"If Halo 4 isn't like Halo 2 it will be the end Halo." What a crock of crap, it's a planned new trilogy.
He is more saying that if it goes in a completely separate direction than what was the most successful then it will not matter if they are making 5 and 6 because they will have alienated the fans.
nope halo 1 was much better than halo 2 imo and secondly the greatest FPS of all time imo is Perfect Dark N64, maaaaan amazing, it even surpassed the unbeatable Goldeneye 007 that's my humble opinion
Halo 1 was the best out of the whole series. The campaign is infectious and addictive. I didn't really like the campaign of Halo 2 that much and the only reason one would consider it the best is because of the multiplayer. However, like you said, Halo 1 is still the better game in my opinion.
I played Halo 1 after Halo 2 and I thought Halo 1 was crap in comparison. In Halo 2 you can hijack ghosts, you can fly banshees, you can dual wield weaponry. In Halo 1 you only played as the Master Chief. In Halo 2 you play two characters in a dual-divergent story that comes together perfectly in the end, and probably the most creative FPS campaign I've played, and that includes Half Life 2. Really, not a single campaign has touched Halo 2's campaign in 7 years. And people think Resistance 3 actually has a good campaign. Halo 2's MP was so popular that it remained the number one MP played on the Xbox 360 until Gears of War 3. Halo 2 is much much much better than Halo 1. Halo 1 was Bungie's first foray and while good, is completely amateur in comparison to Halo 2.
Someone never played Timesplitters.
Timesplitters is the best FPS series i've ever played, easily more fun than CoD and Batttlefield
Halo 2's multiplayer was the most addicting multiplayer I've ever played... It was right up there with Rainbow Six 3 (which was another great mp game). I really wish XBL for the original Xbox was canceled... I would so be playing both Rainbow Six & Halo 2! Argh!!! Good times.. :(
Cod4 >>>>>>>Ha lo
Halo2 might have been the best FPS in its time but now the time has changed and there are lots of great shooter games out there which is why I totally disagree with this statement it should have been "Halo 2 best FPS console game in its own era". Don't get me wrong but If any gamer has to make a choice between Halo 2 and Battlefield 3 its obvious that most of the gamers would prefer Battlefield 3 over Halo 2.
Because comparing two games from different generations is unfair. You base it on how the game held up against others on it own gen.
I liked CE a lot more, didn't see the point playing Halo 2 online when it was 30FPS and controlled with a pad (I was still playing a lot of UT 2004 and other PC FPS games at the time). I've never really gotten into playing FPS games online on a console, I guess.
CE sucked! lmaooooo Halo 3 took the skill out of it with no button glitches, and halo Reach is TERRIBLE with bloom and they realize that now, Halo takes a lot of skill to get good at it, unlike Call of Duty, and battlefield is by far not the best FPS ever...come on Call Of Duty outdid it.... Halo 2 takes a lot of skill i guess people dont realize that, i mean it was the game that started MLG
Halo 2 was by far my least favourite Halo game, it's a piece of crap, Halo 1 and ODST were far better games, FACT. But then again I'm old school and I much prefer SP and four player couch MP, online MP just doesn't do it for me and never will tbh.
Halo 2 was the best. Equipment messed up the game a little and minimizing the need for dual wielding. What killed it was reach's "me too" perks. It ruined the flow. I agree with the author, if Halo 4 isn't a Halo 2 sequel in terms of gameplay, i wont play it unless they evolve the game in ways we didnt think they would that turn out awesome. In the meantime...Tribes: Ascend is the best MP on the market right now and i highly suggest grabbing a beta key.
Meh Call of duty 4 was better imo
Halo 2 was the best Halo game IMO
Is this a shitstorm in progress? You guys are funny
Since when did 007 Goldeneye 64 lose its crown? I like Killzone 2. Best FPS IMO.
Halo 2 on Legendary = unfiltered BS. The enemies have like 300% health and do 150% damage. I literally spent 90% of the portion you play as the arbiter turning invisible and running because the covanent could kill you in 10 seconds. Don't get me started on the flood levels >:(. Halo CE and 3 >>> Halo 2
guys hes talking more about the multiplayer not the story ...
Halo 2 created a huge skill gap separating the pro's from the scrubs.
I'm much more of a fan of the original Halo. To this day I have a tinge of disgust when I hear the name Halo 2, that sudden cliffhanger ending REALLY pissed me off! It soured me on the series for awhile but I eventually went back. I do have fond memories of the all night MP frag-fests though.
Lets just clarify this imo. 1. Halo 1 had the best campaign in the Halo series. 2. Halo 2 had the best multiplayer experience. Online multiplayer is what really made Halo 2 the most successful. And imo, Halo 2 is the Best FPS on any Console, for sure better then the other 2 popular FPS like BF and CoD.
AnimeAvenger I feel it Halo 1 campaign was the best
Halo 2 has been my most played Multiplayer shooter....You know, you actually had to be good at it.
BF3 is only good for the PC. On a Xbox and PS3 its bad. Playing a game with 64 people is how you play BF 3.
Halo 2 is the hallmark of console shooters.the reason why we are enjoying FPS's today is due to halo 2 setting the standard for online multiplayer for consoles.to dismiss halo 2's historic journey onto consoles is being a narrow minded gamer.todays console shooters has a touch of halo in them.halo proved that FPS's could work on consoles.FPS's would not be what they are today without halo.
couldn't have said it better myself.
bubble for you sir and thank you.
Holy crap no. Hopefully no Halo will ever be like Halo 2. Yes it brought a ton of great innovations to console multiplayer and defined how console multiplayer should be handled, but the single player was garbage, and numerous gameplay elements were nerfed and/or changed for the worst. The campaign levels were tight and close quarters. Weapon capacities were cut in half from their CE counterparts. Weapons could no longer shoot as far. The grenade throwing arcs were much shorter. All of the melee animations were stiff and largely the same, whereas in CE every weapon had a fluid melee animation that was unique to each weapon. All of the now dual wieldable weapons were garbage when used by themselves, not to mention the plasma weapons lost their "freeze" effect. Yes the game brought a ton of new welcome features (dual wielding, destructible elements, vehicle boarding, etc.) but the moment to moment action wasn't even half as strong as what it was in CE. Bungie scrapped the game and engine and quickly threw it together in under a year. It shows.
Half Life 2>>>>>>>& gt; All fps
I love the Halo games but i overall i think they come second to the Time Splitters series cause it is just wacky and has tons of unlockables. We need a new Time Splitters game.
Am I really the only person here who has half a brain? Let's take a look, shall we? Many "great game series'" were only "great" for around 2 or 3 games in possibly 2 to 6 games. Why? Because they never innovated the game play, and never did anything new. Sure, it may have updated graphics, and a new story, but it's still the same crap you played 2 years ago. Take for instance, Call of Duty's spin-off series, Modern Warfare. The first game- huge success, everyone loved it, it was fun, instant classic. Then MW2 rolled around- huge success, many loved it, it was ok, not a classic. It was highly successful because the previous was may I mind you, the soreness felt from this game would also go on to affect the third, MW3. MW3 would see unbelievable sales, and sadly mainstream perfection. However, the community did not. Why? Because it's the same shit the last two have been! Hell, they could have taken Black Ops and modified it so much it was new, Black Ops had many new things that the community loved, yes? No, instead they just re-skinned MW2 and sold it for another 60$, plus investments from DLC, the full game will be around 100$-120$. Outrageous right? Now think, what if Halo had done the same thing? Would it be the legendary game it is? Would it be the Xbox and Xbox 360 (and possibly Xbox 720/Next)s' main game? Of course not! it would have died, just like Call of Duty is! (Bad opinions of MW3 have come up a lot as of recent, with people shifting to BF3 and such). Each and every Halo will be a different experience- that's why it's Halo. Remember the quote Bungie gave us when Combat Evolved was in the making? "Halo is mysterious...it's a new place", that quote is what Halo is. New, Mysterious, Exciting. If Halo 4 is just re-packaged Halo 2/3/Reach, you can expect Halo too die, but if you add in the fact there are MANY, MANY new weapons and vehicles in Halo 4, this may not be the case. But, in the end, who wants to play Halo 2 with a Reaper rifle instead of a Battle rifle? It's the same thing, only prettier.
