Ok, there are many treads out there about the topic, but none have good arguements, and none compare the 2 in a good way. So, I hope this thread will stay and become popular as we debate the topic.
Half Life 2
Good physics, linear game play, top notch graphics, multiplayer, ability to be moded.
Bad physics, linear game play, high end graphics, multiplayer with not as many people as in pc games like hl2, cannot be modded.
Ok, the difference between halo 1 and 2, one might argue that its the graphics, cinematics, and more weapons, vehicles, enemies, and maps. Not a big difference if you ask me. Gameplay will be pretty much the same thing with a similar story.
The biggest difference between HL2 and HL1 is the phycis, as well as graphics, weapons, new story, etc.
So to compare the 2:
Physics- No doubt, half life 2 is the winner here Gameplay- Gameplay will be much more enjoyable in hl2 because of much greater physics then halo 2. Other then that, you pretty much shoot through the levels, but in hl2 you take advantage of the phycis. So hl2 wins this one. Graphics- Both games have good graphics, so they are both winners. MP- Halo has x-box live, but hl2 can be played on the internet wich is a million times better then xbox live. More server, more players, way better. Story- The story is pretty much linear in both games, but I find hl2's story more interesting, but Ill let the people decide this one. Ability to be modded- Half life 2 wins without a doubt since halo 2 wont have an sdk. Weapons- It debends whether you enjoy shooting more realistic weapons or out of this world weapons. Vehicles- Halo 2 has more vehicles, so halo 2 wins this one. Enemies- Half life 2 has more cool enemies, that dont look like shit with eyes. Cinematics- Half life 2 has none, so halo 2 wins.
Anything I left out, feel free to continue.
I scanned through your post, and because your a biased little loser i already know you'll go for Half life 2. And by the way, there are about 100 other threads about this you idiot jackass, it'll be closed.
zeronite your a **snipped** edits: read stealths other posts so what was said above was uncalled for sorry zeronite
what you said does seem alittle biased however and I would have to say that mods are the best things half life has going for it that and its hard to compare a computer game to a console game like that
I dont know what your talking about as far as weapons go theyre both very unrealistic but does that really matter?
I also think your judgement of MP is unfair I base my mp games on lan play not over the internet play both games would have good multiplayer
halo2 - cause not everyone can afford expensive computers like mine plus its easy fast and good for lan
half life two - larger groups would be just as fun be hard to get the group without having to deal with people showing up smoking pot and not paying which is how crap lan can turn out
I'll love both games, so will alot of people, but there are like 7 other threads about this already.
I didn't make it!
This thread sucks because Half Life 2 didn't even come out when he wrote the thread. Good job.
Gameplay- Gameplay will be much more enjoyable in hl2 because of much greater physics then halo 2. Other then that, you pretty much shoot through the levels, but in hl2 you take advantage of the phycis. So hl2 wins this one.
umm, its not even out yet, how the hell can you say the gameplay is better? Because of the better physics? No.
I've been playing halo 2 non stop for 4 days and it has GREAT physics, almost as good as half-life 2, the only difference being there isn't as much of it.
Stealth 3 talks out of his ass and knows jack shit about what he talks about. Actually get some facts before you debate Stealth you ass.
HL2 = counterstrike mod (my favorite FPS ) Halo 2 you dont need a high-end PC Halo 2 goofy physics Halo 2 lame 2-d personality hero (look at me I'm such a bad ass blah blah blah) I like HL2, but my opinion is just that, an opinion.
By the way, Stealth, HL2 can't actually be played online. It's online mode is Counterstrike Source.
this is completely biased in favor of hl2. Halo 2 kicks major ass. no question. i wonder if stealth 3 has even played halo 2...
