View Full Version : Halo2 or HL2?

Which was better?

imho, Halo2, even though it had a HORRIBLE cliffhanger ending....*sigh* that alone made it a tough decision. However, since HL2's ending wasn't all that good, I had to go with Halo2.

Half Life 2, no question about it.

Halo 2 was a blast though.

I don't care about endings. It's how the game plays out through 99.999% of it, not the 0.001% of it. And for that, my vote goes to Half-Life 2 and just like the guy above me "no question about it". I've beat both Halo2 and HL2. Halo 2 was a blast, excellent run and gun shooter. Half-Life 2 was the most amazing shooter experience I've had since playing Doom II back in the 1995 and since playing Battlefield 1942 online for the first time in 2003.

Half Life 2 has my vote. When Halo 2 was released, I was constantly found on my xbox playing it. But a week later Half Life 2 was released, I never touched Halo 2 after that :)

HL2 of course! ;)

The problem with Halo is, the enter area, kill anything that moves thats a red blip on the radar.. save checkpoint, trigger scripted event, repeat, method of game gets old.. fast.

There is no room for the player to approach a situation differently, apart from which weapon you decide to kill enemies with.

It's terribly linear, but the action is great, with awesome visuals and kickass multiplayer/co-op game.

Half-Life 2, obviously

I voted Halo 2, don't get me wrong..HL2 is a great game, but the multiplayer aspect in a game is always what catches my attention the most and the Halo 2 multiplayer is the better experience IMO.

How can you even compare the 2... different systems for starters.

What an insult comparing HL2 to something that dosnt even come close to a good game :rolleyes:

Saying that, if were comparing the basic overall of the 2 games HL2 does not even have to try to win. Halo 2 isnt a patch on HL2 ;)

i know this isnt exactly the same thing but i just recentlly purchased halo 1 for my pc. its pretty fun but ive found that i can only play for short periods of time because of how repetitive it gets. seriously some levels have almost half a dozen rooms that look exactly the same in which you fight the exact same cadre of enemies. i found myself begging for a cutscene or anything to shake things up a bit.

i dont know for sure bc i havnt played much halo 2 but...

my vote went to half life 2 for graphics, gameplay and i like the story better. just my opinion though.

oh yeah, a funny side note. while playing halo 1 with my controller i find myself getting killed alot and so sometimes i get frustrated enough that i'll grab my mouse and keyboard and be through the same area in 1/10th the amount of time without dieing once. kinda funny.

I'm a graphics wh0re, so I'd have to pretty much go with PC over console. Halo 2 is fun . . . . if you can't afford a nice PC. There, I said it. Now go cry to your mommy for a new Alienware! LOL JK!

I thought Halo 1 was more memorable than Halo 2.

hl2 of course, halo is gay.

hl2 of course, halo is gay.

That's going to be my quote of the day.

I hated Halo 2, I liked the first one on xbox, and enjoyed it a bit more for the multiplayer on pc, but for me, Halo 2 felt more like an expansion pack than a true sequel. It wasn't a BAD game, it just didn't leave me in awe like the first one, where as valve created a masterpiece with hl and then did it again with hl2.

HL2 all the way, I absolutely love this game. MP DM OwnZ

I don't know about halo 2, but half life 2 is buggy to the point of rabid frustration.

02-26-05, 03:21 PM
Half-Life 2 .... not even a competition :)

02-26-05, 05:06 PM
Hl2 .

02-27-05, 03:24 PM
god i hate half life 2 and even i know its better than halo bleh >_<

Halo 2. It offered a more rounded combat experience whereas half life 2 was good for a nice drive in the country but something was lacking in the combat. I remember the best thing about half life 1 was all the battles with the marines that encouraged some decent tactics. I didnt find the sequel had that.

I chose HL2 since I haven't played Halo2 - btw is it out on PC yet? I liked the first Halo..

02-28-05, 07:15 AM
I only wish I could vote for HL2 twice, but seeing the results there isn't any need to :)

It will be out on PC when Halo 3 comes out.... if even then...
