what game should i get killzone 2 or halo 3?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - what game should i get killzone 2 or halo 3?

Depends what kind of FPS game you're after.

If its for pure fun factor ... go Halo.
If its for more tactical action... go Killzone.

If you want the best FPS experience overall... go CoD4.

with an install base of 3 times ... obviously

The point was that killzone2 isnt anything extraordinary in sales in Japan... much like the rest of the world where its sales are becoming very ordinary indeed.



I'm not really here!

why not get them both. they are completely different approaches to fps's.


i personally thought halo was too old school in the way it played. it plays like a slower unreal tournament with bigger levels and dumber weapons. my wife likes the hairy weapon as she calls it, but then she stabbed herself in the face with her thumb, so take that for what it's worth.


kz is a totally different experience. i've never played a game like it.

The only potential weapon that I can think of right now that could match that eloquent description is the Needler. The "Hairs," would then be pink, razor sharp needles... Slow-firing, mild tracking abilities, however; you only need to strike the opponent with seven needles to instantly kill them. This could be the justification for the weapon preference.

thanks.   yeah i know what the weapon is.  my wife just prefers a....gestalt manner of description.  and she likes it cuz it's cute.  you're not thinking enough like a woman to get it.  i don't really get it either.

 

but about the weapons, i played the mp on all three halos, and i had to be told which one i was playing they were so similar.  there are way too many weapons that when you get you're like, "ok this looks like it should be good"  and then it's crap.

 

 

killzone has way fewer weapons, but they are almost all super fun to use.  i've unlocked almost all of them for the mp, but i still prefer the m82 machine gun...it kicks ass.

 



art is the excrement of culture

i'm reading all this comparison and debate, and it is shocking how many people just don't get either game.

halo is sort of the epitome of the classic pc shooter. it has tons of options, lots of weapons, a mp that is designed to be basically the pc gamers wet dream, and online and offline coop.

the gameplay of halo is designed to give pc shooter fans exactly what they are used to. the massive jumping, precision aiming, and strafe firing are all hallmarks of the pc shooter that halo makes use of. halo simply takes the pc shooter and crams more stuff in it than ever before.

kz2 is nothing like that. it is a hard as nails immersive shooter. putting tons of bells and whistles on it just doesn't seem in line with the theme of graphic realism. a needler would take away from that...a little bit.

when seen in their proper spheres i don't think there is any need to be a retarded fanboy about either game. depending on which style of shooter you prefer will determine what shooter you will think is better.

i was never a pc gamer, and i think realistic immersion is the most exciting and fun thing ever in shooters, so i prefer kz2.

and when people say kz2 brought no innovation to the genre, they are really just revealing their ignorance of the game and treating it like it should be a pc shooter.

Get the one that isn't on the WORST SYSTEM EVAR IT BROKE ON ME FOUR TIMES BAWWWWW.

And be a little more subtle with your next flamebait thread, IMO.

Killzone 2!!!or resistance 2!



Being a cricket fan is much simpler and more fun

to give some more context to my last post, i got unreal tournament 3 for the ps3 when it came out. it looked great. while it was fun, it played way too much like halo...only faster. after cod4 came out i really found it difficult to play any other shooter before it. cod5 was good too, but it lacked a certain something that cod4 had. well killzone has been out for over two months, and i still play it over cod4.



art is the excrement of culture

halo 3 wins hands down, a better campiagn, alot better online setup, tons of replay value, just a more enjoyable game,co-op and online co-op . :)

what gameplay aspect did Halo 3 innovate in exactly?

 

What has Halo 3 Innovated or perfected?

-It made FPS games with humans vs aliens on consoles cool. It's also the most popular console shooter since Goldeneye.

-Duel wielding completely different weapons.

-Jacking vehicles with animations.

-Created the "play it while hating it attitude" where FPS elitists claim they hate the game, but cannot stop playing it.

-Unorothodox multiplayer match types.

-Perfected the use of vehicles while in an FPS world (Tanks). It innovated, by upping that and adding hover vehicles and unorthodox flying machines with their own style of fire.

-Has some of the most eye catching weaponry of any FPS around. Many games have cool weaponry which are novel, but this game has pretty weaponry. Needler= 'Nough said.

-Has rechargable sheilds

- What game do you know that has a f'n gravity hammer?

-Halo is the reason Resistance or KZ2 exists.

-The only console FPS franchise responsible for conversion of PC fanatics to console.

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Halo (the first one) responsible for all of this ?
