The online playing style doesn't even require any strategy. you don't need any positioning or anything to have an advantage. All you do is fire away and if you get close enough while shooting, just melee them and it's a kill. Sniping is not even strategic. The only strategy that can be a legit strategy is being able to use vehicles with another person. For Halo 3 to be regarded as a near perfect game is far from the truth. Call of Duty 4 is leagues ahead of Halo 3 as far as being a FPS goes and as far as being a quality game. There is actual strategy in that game since running and gunning will pretty much make you look like a fool and you'll get picked off unless you have people to help you divert away attention. And now Battlefield Bad Company is coming out and already playing the online multiplayer, that game is an FPS which has versatility. I'm not trying to be bias because the Halo series is still entertaining but The Halo series is now a group of average FPS shooters with average storylines with a gaming community full of sore losers and jackasses who try to raise it up to be the god of all video games.


I don't see how Halo 2 or Halo 3 improved upon the first game, it was still the same engine as the first game, just a few tweaks and add ons. Even then there so many things to the online that Bungie could have worked on to make it less glitchy (lag filled games, cheaters, WTF moments), as far as I can see CoD 4 is one of the more impressive FPS games I've played in a long time. Other than that Halo 2 and 3 are nothing more than Halo 1.2 and Halo 1.3.


Halo 2 just had a lot more variety than the first Halo did with weapons. It was a much better playing experience than the first halo, the only thing I missed from the first halo was pretty much the Handgun. Halo 3 if anything just improved in the graphics department and nothing else. Halo 2 in my opinion was a big improvement to Halo as far as overall gameplay goes.


Still besides new weapons, and the ability to dual wield, it was still felt as if I was playing the first game.


same could be said for any sequel.


Not exactly, RE4 redefined on what sequels should be. By improving the gameplay, it not only reinvigorated the series but made it exciting to play. As for Halo, the creators did nothing really to improve upon the game cept for a few minor tweaks. Other than that it still ran on the same engine, sporting the same
gameplay, which quite honestly gets boring after awhile.

hmmm well i enjoyed playing halo a lot. i guess it depends on who you play with. online... it gets aggravating when playing to 14yr olds who cuss like a sailor and mod the levels in order to cheat. that really takes the fun out of playing online...other than that...when you play with your friends who cover you and actually play as a team... its a lot of fun winning.
the campaign mode was okay.. i really enjoyed the aliens humor and fighting style.

In general, sequels do tend to stay within the older games' formulas. Your Resident Evil 4 is an exception because how many games did it take for Capcom to finally stray away from the older formula?? Let's see.... RE, RE2, RE Nemesis, RE Code Veronica, RE Zero, RE remake..... that's seven games. It took them 8 years to finally change the formula. In those games the only game that really strayed away slightly as far as gameplay went was Nemesis because Jill had the ability to dodge and roll. That was it. Resident Evil 4 better have a new formula after the old one was growing tiresome after 8 years. Now look at Resident Evil 5. From the gameplay that they have shown, RE5 is not doing too much to improve on what RE4 did. All that they are adding is a few "minor tweaks" in improved graphics, more enemies on screen, and two new gameplay aspects that aren't groundbreaking which is the cover system, and how your body reacts to heat and light. RE5 so far is showing itself to be to RE4 what Halo 2 was to Halo.

The Halo series is relatively young and what the developers are doing with Halo and its sequels is no different from what every developer has done with other series and their sequels. Plus with FPS games, there's not much you can do to make them versatile games. Not every FPS game can be like The Darkness where you have demons helping you out and giving you extra abilities adding an extra twist to the gameplay.

Again, usually sequels stay within the system established by their prodecessors unless they undergo major hardware changes or go through a long period of time.

Granted that it took Capcom a long time to rejuvenate the RE franchise, it was still some noteworthy. Also I'm not denying that sequels tend to stay with the same formula that makes that franchise a success, after all that's just good business.
My problem is that there was a hardware change, and you'd think with Halo 3 being a non-launch game Bungie would have done more to reinvigorate the series. Like a cover feature perhaps? After all there were some buttons on the controller that were left non-used.

Which is why I originally said that Halo 3 was the game in the series that did nothing. Halo 2 did bring new things to the series and was an improvement over Halo. Almost anyone could agree to that. That's what set the expectations for Halo 3 so high. And while Halo 3 may not be as great of a game as say the first two games were, it is still an updated game and for online gamers, updated games will always get more playing time. For all we know, Madden 08 and NBA Live 08 could very well be better games than Madden 09 and NBA Live 09, but what games will people be playing more online? The newer games. Halo 3 is just living off of the benefit of being the more updated game than Halo 2.

ROB gameplay wise, was a bad decision. ROB with his historic reference to Nintendo's history, was a great decision.
