call of duty is to much like counter strike with all the load outs a stuff, call of duty is just to similar
See it's hilarious when people act like it's one thing.
"Oh COD has guns Halo must be ripping it off!"
It's stuff like that which really just shows you're ignoring anything that doesn't fit with your perception. Taking things from COD isn't inherently a bad thing, but it's undeniable that it's exactly what they're doing.
They definitely took a lot from call of duty but it's still a bazillion times better than that putrid filth known as Halo Reach. Don't see what 343i was hoping to accomplish from copying so much cod stuff, cod players won't turn to Halo because they like their ADHD friendly shooter where killing things can be done in a blink of an eye, they'd also find that how they play cod would get them demolished on Halo.
think halo fanboys need to admit call of duty did some things well.
i personally welcome a better sense of progression into my halo MP.
No, no and NO.. Better progression than the levels in Halo 2 and Halo 3? You can't beat those levels and it actually gave players something to actually work for instead of just playing for x amount of hours. Not to say what Halo 4 has isn't decent with the armor unlocks and such but calling it's certainly not a better sense of progression than trying to get level 50 on certain playlists and the actual real ingame prestige it brang instead of the rubbish cod based system.
Things have to change. Borrowing ideas from one of the biggest, if not the biggest, fps franchise is just logical.
Take the best bits from one game, add them to the best bits from another game etc = one very good game.
You are looking at things through Halo Nostalgia tinted spectacles. You will probably never enjoy an online FPS as much as you did the previous iterations because they were genuinely new and fresh. Same way, I'll never enjoy an FPS as much as I did Counter-strike 1.6, although COD 4 came close.
Just enjoy the game as it is and try to take off those glasses :)
