Halo sucks ass in every area except maybe graphics & audio. Halo 2 took out some of what did make halo's gameplay good. Added a bunch of crap jacked straight from Unreal 2k4 and continued to suck. I dispise halo in so many ways. I would rather Play Doom I on a lan party than Halo. So needless to sya i would rahter play Battlefront Cuz battlefront, a game i thought was gonna blow at first was so friggin addictive.

Oh yeah? What specifically did they take OUT of Halo 1 in Halo 2? I'm curious. Because I've played Halo 2, and I've played Battlefront, and you know which game I don't own anymore? I will give you a hint. I'm going to play Halo 2 now.

The F*cked the pistol up. it used to be a great weapon at range but now you can zoom or anything and the the damage has been severly reduced. Also you can fall like 9x10 billionth power miles and you wont die. No matter how far you fall you dont get hurt nothing at all. in halo you could be up on a ledge get shot 3 times with the pistol fall off the ledge and die. Well now the pistol wont knock you off the ledge and even if you fall you wont even get hurt. Also the health meter is gone and you exclusivly have the rechargable shields. What good is it? i mean in the Campaign mode you can allways run away and hide until your shields restore... Need anymore reason im sure i can find some more reasons why halo sucks, all it is doeing is rideing on some k/a graphics and a cheesey storyline. The characters Major Chief.... since when do you get to concurrent military ranks?!?!

The character is Master Chief....but whatever...


The pistol was toned down beause in Halo 1 is was basically the only weapon you needed. It severely unbalanced multiplayer when the pistol was one of the best long AND short range weapons.

I remember running away and hiding until my shields restored a LOT in the original halo...you know, because you had recharging shields in that game too.


Pistols never knocked anyone off of a ledge either...the only gun with enough kick to actually MOVE people in Halo 1 was the rocket launcher.

And it makes sense that Mater chief can fall a really long ways without being injured, he has a new body suit. It's all super awesome now, and it protects him from such falls.

In the end, I've never had as much fun on Xbox live as I have with Halo 2.

Halo 2 will kill battlefront on Xbox, that is why Lucasarts released battlefront half-assed!!!


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Well, the original Halo had a very very very annoying SP. Don't get me wrong, the story was nice but hey, whoever was the level designer for Bungie at that time deserved to be fired. Most...repetitive...SP...ever...

I've heard that the SP portion of Halo2 is also repetitive(I haven't played that yet since I do not own an xbox and need to go to a friend's house to play).

MP wise the game is ok. I still prefer to play UT2k4 but Halo 2 is pretty fun too. Well, my friend owns me 'cause he's used to playing with the controller while I'm not which is annoying but hey.


Overall, I must say I would play both. I consider Halo to be overrated, not bad. I'm mostly a PC FPS player so my experience in them is very different and some might say a lot better.

In conclusion, the Halo serie is the BEST CONSOLE FPS. Port it too PC and it doesn't last long.

Dude, *flaming is teh bad!!11!!*you probably don't even have halo,you just read reviews or listen to your friends,anyway,that crap you call a game(battlefront)has way to many glitches,and Halo2's online beats the crap out of battlefronts any day.You can say what you want about halo,but the people who know what they are talking about and have at least some taste in games,know that halo 2 is the king!For proof,visit the battlefronts online servers,yester day there was 4 and they only had maybay 3-5 people in there rooms.

*Tisk tisk, none o that now! ~ET

JEEZUM CROW! GET A GRIP PEOPLE!

Quote:
"my video game can beat up your video game because (insert verbal diahrreah here)."
First it was Halo 2 vs SWBF. Now it is about Halo 2 vs Half Life 2, and why this one sucks more than the other, and vice versa.

I mean seriously, once we get over the yes, no, or both answer to the thread question, why must we continue this mindless rant.

Seriously, I like some games that most people think are about retarded, but they seem fun to me, and I care less about what others think, but I am not going to go on and on about why it is cool?

People who post in forums, NEVER learn that people ARE entitled to opinions, but if somebody disagree's with you, what is the point of the argument? Do you actually expect somebody to go, "Gee sir, you are right, this copy of Halo 2 is a worthless piece of trash, and SWBF really sucks the big one! I think I will throw both in the trash, and go buy Half Life 2! Golly, you really saved the day, THANK YOU! Where would I be without your divine wisdom?"

Guys, just play what you want, have fun and....you know....shut up!

Back on topic,

I MAY play BOTH SWBF, AND Halo 2 tomorrow. Realitives are visiting, so quality time is pending...

Master Chief is an elisted naval rank for the pay grade of E-9, Which stands for Master Chief Petty Officer. A Master Chief in the Navy is the highest ranking enlisted member.

Well in the Marine corp(I am in marine corp ROTC so i know) the highest enlisted rank is Sergent Major, Master Gunnery Sergent, or Sergent Major of the Marine Corp.And I think the "Chief'' is in the marine corp.

Not really. You trade off between playing Master Chief and an elite. It's actually pretty fun. The only annoying part to me in Halo 2 is fighting the flood. The Library in Halo is what made me stop playing and not finish Halo, because it got too repetitive.

And as far as Xbox games go, this is one of the best ones. It's really fun for SP, and for MP, it's a blast.

And as far as computer MP goes, I like Unreal Tournament 2003. I didn't buy 2004 yet, so, maybe I'll wait 'til 2005 comes out. But UT2k3 is pure joy! I remember summer days in 2003 playing against Kjolen.

UT2k3 is considered a huge disapointement and I agree. UT2k4 is so much better. Assault is back and there's the Onslaught mode where you can use vehicles.

Well, UT2k4 is just like 2k3, but with Vehicles. I wasn't too fond of the demo of 2k4. The vehicles seemed so unfair, I kept getting run over. That doesn't even happen in Halo.

Well, The original Unreal Tournament is alot better.

I guess im a little late to this but whatever. Ive got the PS2 version of battlefront. Guess what other game ive got. GTA san andreas. Even though ive got the game of the year i still find my self plaing Battlefront rather often. Just because you have a good game doesnt mean you have to abandon all of your old ones.
