I'm not talking about story, characters, weapons, or even the the game as a whole. I'm talking about a single level that makes you want to replay it. Both series have had some unique and varied level designs, but a few stand out for me:

Halo:CE - When you land on the Ring for the first time. Open landscape, the Warthog, even spots where fellow marines show up.

Halo 3 - When you get to take down a Scarab. Excellent.

Halo 3:ODST - I actually liked the open world hub. It was a different take on the formula.

COD 4 - The opening training level. Probably played that one for a few hours before ever starting the real game.

The ghille suit and long range sniper stage. That got intense the first time I played it.

COD MW2 - The level based off of the Estate MP map. From start to finish, it was just a rush.

COD Ghosts - The last two stages in the game on Veteran get pretty hairy, but awesome.

There are definitely some that I missed, but those are ones that I think best represent what a dev can do in a well crafted FPS. How about you?

Like it or not, I would consider COD4's mission design to be influencing just about every shooter to come out since.

But, that said, taken as a whole, Halo has far better level design. COD's level design nowadays is offensively claustrophobic and trite to the point that it feels like self parody.

CoD definitely. Unless you like rocks and generic ship and stone corridors that is.

I absolutely love the New Mombasa levels in Halo 2. Chasing down that Scarab and jumping onto it was always my favorite.
