What the title says. i personally prefer firelight due to customisation, vehicles, horde comes as a close second.

Firefight is cool that you can customize but oh my god are those such mediocre firefight maps. At least Gears of Wars gameplay lends itself to that styIe of play, and Nazi Zombies has the right maps for that styIe of play. Personally I'm sick of this type of mode all together. It has no real lasting appeal to me. Seems like another addition for the sake of putting a bullet on the back of the box.

haven't played Zombies. looks really fun though.

but Gears is kind of bleh to me in general. I've played a little horde, but didn't really like it.

Firefight for me.

Played halo last week with some firefight matches and my thoughts are.. pretty absolutely boring so a pass

Have never played a horde mode or even gears so no comment, a pass

CoD zombies, played this for hours and hours with friends so zombies wins for me

Zombies could be so much better. Getting kills isn't particularly satisfying.

But the maps are decent although there's obviously a very limited selection.

Horde is good but did they release an update that slowed player movement or something? It felt too clunky and sluggish the last time I played it.

Firefight is probably the most streamlined and the customisation is brilliant but the maps aren't anything special.

Firefight for me, regardless though..

Only played firefight in ODST, only played horde and zombies at a friend. And I had the most fun with zombies, just because it has zombies in it

Halo: Reach firefight simply for the ridiculous amount of customization and the inclusion of a versus firefight option.

Firefight>Zombies>Horde

Horde is really good, as a matter a fact I think that it is the reason that so many console games are adding this feature. However that's its biggest problem, so many games have improved over Gear's barebones mode that its become redundant.

Killing Floor and L4D are superior to all the modes you just mentioned.

Reach's firefight would have been the best of them all if you could play classic mode in matchmaking. infinite sets with limited lives until everyone dies. the current mode just lets people play sloppy, and you have to keep waiting in matchmaking to play again.

i dont really care for firefight all that much, but it was much better than horde mode.

I havent played zombies yet though, but it looks fun.

Haven't played Horde mode, but I'm not a big fan of either Zombies or firefight. I liked Resistance 2 Co-op better than those two, mainly because of the different classes (medic, spec ops, and soldiers)

Horde and firefight got extremely boring for me. The reason why I bought BO was because of Zmode (other than getting the platinum)

I like the customization of Reach's Firefight, but ODST's version and Gear's Horde mode is much more intense and evokes the struggle of surviving impossible odds.

Firefight due to the amount of customization (Gruntpocalypse FTW!) But I also like Horde since I feel it takes more team work

Played them all and I've got to say,

Gears of War 2's Horde Mode is the best by far.

Now Nazi Zombies is pretty fun and Halo Reach's Customized Firefight can be fun too but Gears has it down!

Resident Evil 4 Mercenaries.AAllxxjjnn

I don't like that one because there's a time limit.

If only there wasn't a time limit and it was just strictly Survival then I might like it.

Zombies for sure. Much more humor, more interesting story line (which isn't saying much), better weapons

Horde, hands down.

Firefight follows up from far away, tailed by CoD Zombies.

I prefer horde mode, but reach firefight has the most option, but the maps and reach in gneral sucks

Reachs firefight is the most well done, ODSTs was meh. Zombies and Horde are pretty fun, but are pretty simplistic.

All 3 are kinda wack, but Horde was my favorite out of the bunch. Nice way to get away from terrible lag and host advantage of the PvP.

Killing Floor > all survival game types. That being said it's a hard choice. Haven't played much Firefight at all rather heard mixed things, GeoW horde is ok, and zombies has the plus of a new setting and the complete absurdity behind it - so I guess it has an edge. Ultimately:
Personally I'm sick of this type of mode all together. It has no real lasting appeal to me. Seems like another addition for the sake of putting a bullet on the back of the box. jg4xchamp
This, totally agree.

I had the best time with Gears 2 myself, two of my friends and their wives both like playing it with me so we had lots of fun together and it was good since there are 5 player slots for Horde mode. We didn't care as much for Firefight in ODST but we liked Reach's Firefight a lot more I haven't really been able to give COD Zombies a good go since none of my closest friends have either WaW or Black Ops, I tried matchmaking but it wasn't as satisfying for me without my friends anyhow, what about Red Dead Redemptions Undead Nightmare horde mode? haven't tried it yet myself (just getting into the SP part of it), but what do you guys think of that too? Worth getting into?
