ITT=lots of peple who started with Halo 3


Started wIth CE, so no.


Yup I started playing Halo within a month or two of Halo CE being released.

In a "for its time" comparison, CE is obviously the best Halo game. In a "side by side" comparison, it's not.

Agreed, I traded in my GameCube for an Xbox just to get Halo.

You can't include Reach on the list if you want to argue H4 isn't a Halo game, by the way.

H4 is more of a Halo game than Reach ever was.

Reach had the worst maps and the worst mechanics

IMO 3 wasn't much better, I know many disagree but the bad BR, terrible netcode and mediocre launch maps really turned me off at first. Eventually it had a map collection to rival that of Halo 2, but 2 will always be the definitive Halo MP experience, again, imo

For me right now its H2= H3 > H4 > ODST > Wars > Poop >>>>> Reach

The maps and terrible matchmaking system in Halo 4 are terrible right now.

Halo 4 is less of a Halo game, because that core gameplay was still partially there, Halo 4 though is just a second-rate COD game and nothing more.

Reach is still terrible though.

H4 plays nothing like CoD. Superficially at best. It's like saying that CoD and Halo are the same game because you shoot things with guns using the right trigger.

From my thoughts on MP only...

3 = 4 > 2 > CE > Reach

3 had the best balance overall, and the MP maps were mostly great, second only to 2's.

4 is a close tie in balance, has a ton more options which I've had fun with, and the maps, while not as good as 2 & 3's are pretty good.

2 has the best maps in the series and good balance for maps, but the weapon balance, glitches and cheapness of BvR and such took away from it for me. I know some people liked that nonsense. I did not.

CE was mostly played between myself, family and friends, but we've probably logged more time on that than any other Halo since and we STILL pop the game in from time to time. Good maps, and pure nostalgia.

Reach had a few fun maps, mostly Forge variants lol and...that's about it honestly.
