Console.

So, there are objective modes not just slayer. Can you earn score in other ways than killing? Like taking objectives etc?

These people are meat virgins. They'll be taken by the grill and delicately and tenderly be shown the ways of flavorful meat love. The first time is beautiful.

Yeah. Assists, distractions, flag captures/ball-holding time (I know....) etc.

And this stillness of life did not in the least resemble a peace.
It was the stillness of an implacable force brooding over an inscrutable intention.

Some things you can expect: Even the big maps in Halo aren't even close to a big BF3 map. So that will take some getting used to. 4v4 maps are somewhat comparable though. The game is faster-paced, has more of an arena shooter feel, but not crazy twitchiness like CoD. The guy who talked about the learning curve is right. Just hang with it for a little while and you'll get pretty good.

Welcome to halo, TC. I also enjoy BF3, heck I'm even playing it right now on my 360. Like others said though, you should be able to enjoy yourself just fine. The gameplay is slower paced compared to BF3 but by playing enough, getting used to it and with the learning curve, you will be all right.

if they hadn't shut down the servers people would still be playing Halo 2 (you still can using one of the free services).

.




Wait which free services, can you clarify? I wanna play some Halo 2
