[QUOTE="NeonNinja"]

It'll be AAA. I have no interest in it, but I don't think it'll score less than AAA at GS.

NeonNinja

You're not getting the game?

I only play on PC and iOS now. Maybe later WiiU once Bayonetta 2 rolls around.

Hmm, I always took you for a big Halo fan.

Copying one of the best multiplayers out there, StarHawk. Add that to the list of copying Call of Duty etc.

Try harder next time, plenty of games have mechs. I guess UC copied Halo having a theatre mode :o Both arguments are equally silly.

I'm just saying, if you're out to copy...you better be copying one of the best games out there. The 343 director/ceo himself said he was a massive CoD fan.

No.

You don't have to try this hard to downplay Halo as a franchise, it comes off as desperate.

as has been said before, COD copied halo in many respects before halo borrowed a couple of ideas. people acting like taking on a few ideas that other games have had is a bad thing. lol, halo was criticised by cows for not evolving, now they show they make changes and are cows now calling it a copy cat, F****ng sad.

balfe1990

sorry, you have to see it

I like how everyone is an apologist like, bu-bu-but it's open world! You can interact with anything so that's why it complex!!! A game that still runs on that outdated piece of e.coli remnants engine called GameBryo...the game is fundamentally flawed.

I mean, the combat looks wonky as willy...the animations predates standards set by Half-Life 2, the "physics" look like someone spent 20 minutes in Garry's Mod, the scripting is archaic as corinthian columns...even Sony's first party devs have done better in open-world games and they're not known for it.

I understand that for Brorimmers this is the most complex game they've ever seen alongside of Madden...but puh-lease. Anyone who has two neurons to rub together sees that Brorim is low-tier when it comes to complexity. I mean come on, you have loading screens when entering buildings...if that isn't poor programming and really a poor way to chop up a true open world experience, I don't know what is.

Bethesda, it's game over.

Sony will fix the game for you so that your peasant-ass gamers can enjoy your subpar "RPG" but don't think you can do this ever again. Games like Dragon's Dogma will take over pretty soon and The elder Scrolls series will be a relic of the past, ironically only to be remember by elders in the future. It's pathetic when modders can provide you a much better game then the developers themselves. WedidntBugthesda, gtfo out of the Playstation platform. Keep yourself to brogamers on xbox.

You can evolve without having to copy, again copying isn't bad per se, I don't get why lemmings are jumping on any criticism. Take a chill pill bro.

lost planet copied R-type then because of all the "hit the big obvious glowing weak points" i was disappointed in that game, it should have been something i would love, but it just felt wrong.

At this point very few games are 100% unique. Nothing wrong with perfecting a solid formula! 343 did take some notes from CoD (same for Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3, etc...), GT and Forza added an interior view similar to PGR 3, Uncharted are similar to Tomb Raider in many ways and took some notes from Gears´s cover system. Skyrim got the RDR´s random events, etc...

If you only play unique games, then Minecraft is your game. But then again, it stole the first person view from Wolfenstein 3D :P

we aren't jumping on the criticism, look. its bashed for being the same or a rehash (happening in other threads right now) and in this one its bashed because its a copy cat. thats why you are being called out.

With games like ODST and Halo Wars (though not a true Halo game), how can you deny that it is rehashed? Halo could have been a better game if Bungie didn't listen to the fools wanting to confine everything into the Halo universe with the lore or whatnot. Like, do something crazy and innovative.

Secondly, this could give more to talk about and I read the first couple of paragraphs but stopped cause, and be warned, some like myself will consider some of this a bit of spoiler.

That said, I was getting mighty worried and skipped to the last paragraph that made me feel much better.

Can Halo 4 capture the series' spark?

By Martin Robinson Published 28 September, 2012

343's made an authentic Halo game, but the jury's out whether it has an identity of its own.

ODST is actually called - "Halo 3: ODST" it is an expansion pack, the fans were fascinated by the ODST troopers and wanted to know more, bungie listened and delivered a very different in my opinion story experience to the main halo 3 game. the opening few moments of the campaign are some of the most memorable this gen IMO. ODST also introduced firefight, a wave based co-op survival mode, which has now been copied / implemented in other games.

That's the vibe I'm getting. Halo 4 will be the turning point for the franchise. It'll either be the last AAA title of the old formula, or the first AA title of the true sequels.

Kind of the feeling I've been having myself. I think it'll be a decent game, but something always happens when someone comes and tries to continue someone else's work. It never really feels the same.

Kind of a no-win situation for 343. Either they stick to the Bungie template and get blasted for that (because it's likely they won't do it as well) or they change it up too much and the franchise isn't really Halo as we know it anymore.

Either way, I think the series's days as a AAA title are numbered.

#348 Posted by EliteM0nk3y (3382 posts) -
I thing I am not liking about multiplayer is that your standing in MP is point based, like Call of Duty and Battlefield. I don't like that because it means I could go 12/8 and someone could go 8/12 and they would be higher than me. Gets worse in objective games.

I'm pretty sure there were mechs that were big giant walking tanks in the mech warrior universe...etc even if that were the case halo wars released before starhawk has mechs.

Halo will move another step forward and call of duty will take another two steps back next iterations.
