Halo 3 vs Halo 2
« on: January 07, 2009, 05:33:10 pm »
I've been playing a lot of Halo 3 lately, mainly MLG.
Still, Halo 2 was such an amazing game i can't help feeling a bit nostalgic.
Sure the graphics suck now, the physics engine wasn't as clean, and true there were a lot of glitches.
But the gameplay was far better.
The maps were amazing, there is no halo 3 map that even comes close to midship or the real lockdown.
Even though Bungie is remaking several maps, i doubt that they'll be anywhere close to the originals.
Plus, the number of ridiculous weapons and broken playlists, such as the Gravity Hammer, Flamethrower, and Doubles Oddball on the Pit make the game quite frustrating at times, even to those of us who mainly play MLG.

Is anyone else with me here?


I will put a sig on as soon I have something interesting to say.

Halo 2s single player was far better then Halo 3s.

Halo 3s multiplayer is far better then Halo 2s

True Halo is all about the multiplayer, but i'm not in complete agreement that Halo 3's is better than Halo 2's.
A lot of people say that Halo 3 takes more skill, this much is true.
Halo 3 has far less dominating glitches, such as BXB or BXR from Halo 2, and there's no sweep sniping or things of that nature.
Halo 3 is all about steady BRs and great teamwork.
Still, Halo 2's multiplayer was just fun.
Sure, there weren't many ways to customize it, and the glitches allowed a lack of teamwork to be okay, but it was still an amazing experience.
Just the whole feel of the game was great, not to mention the incredible maps such as Midship, Lockdown, and any of the other MLG maps.

Halo 3 just feels a bit wrong.

Halo was better. It's as simple as that.

I would single player in this order: Halo 1, Halo 3, Halo 2.
And I haven't played Halo 1 multiplayer so: Halo 3, Halo 2 :P

Still, I was so sad that they still didn't manage to capture the same feeling as they did in Halo 1 :(
I did love the Scarabs though ^^

Yeah, most people think that Halo 1 was the best, and i'm in almost complete agreement.
But still, Halo 2's multiplayer was amazing.
Maybe im at odds here because all i play in Halo is MLG, and i just think that Halo 2 was better suited for it.

This is how i view it

Halo 1: Loved the campaign and the Mulitplayer (on the PC)
Halo 2: Loved Campaign, but for whatever reason i acutally never got into muliplyer with it  :-\
Halo 3: a "meh" campaign but superior Multiplayer.

and if anyone has H:CE for the PC do you happen to know if the multiplayer is still active. while i sorta doubt it, i have been feeling nostaligic for Death island, Danger Canyon, Infinity, and ice fields :P

Its just Halo 1 was great because you needed to find the mysteries of the rings and in Halo 2 and 3 you are just fighting the covenent and stopping their "evil" plans

I have Halo 1 on PC, and multiplayer is still somewhat active, there are still a few clans circulating and whatnot.
I've been trying to get into it, as my XBox is down this weekend and i'm dying for some Halo, so if anyone wants to play im up for it...
