> More of this crap eh? You cannot compare one games MP to another, totally ridiculous.
You can’t compare anything that has differences to it! That’s absurd!
If you can’t compare two Halos then what can you compare? They’re easily comparable and if you honestly think they’re not, that’s just a petty excuse to not bring up the subject.
Halo 2 had unnecessarily large hitboxes, unnecessarily large amounts of aim assist, certain aspects that were ridiculously unbalanced (i.e. infinite energy sword, noob combo, etc.), large flaws with netcoding (Not as bad as Halo PC, though), rampant hacking/boosting, massive amounts of game breaking glitches, crazy bullet magnetism, and an unfinished campaign. That’s all the stuff I could think of on the top of my head. All of these things are facts, not simply opinions. If you actually know what you’re talking about you can see it, but if you don’t you’d just dismiss this off. It’s all true, though. Most of these points are shown in the “Halo 2 Noobified” video and they’re not up for debate. They’re facts based on absolute evidence.
Just like anything else in life, Halo 2 had flaws. I love the game with all my heart, but you have to accept them. You ought not give this game a god-like title. Nothing deserves of a title like that. Definitely if it has this many flaws about it.
> Noobified? Then why is it that Halo: CE’s best MLG player (Zyos) couldn’t easily adapt to Halo 2?
Noobified? Then why couldn’t Walshy do as good on Halo 3 as he did with Halo 2? Noobified? Then why couldn’t Walshy do as good on Reach as he did with Halo 2? /logic
Simply put: Zyos was best at 1v1 stuff. He wasn’t a team player. When Halo 2 came out, it was mainly focused around team play in tournaments instead of 1v1s. Due to the larger hitboxes/added aim assist, people had to rely more on stealth. His playing style in Halo: Combat Evolved was so aggressive it was hard for him to adapt to that sort of gameplay. The skill gap was shortened so much that it hardly made a difference if he was better at aiming/strafing.
(P.S. If you feel I am “trolling” or “hating” with these observations, you’re being ignorant. I see flaws when they’re there because I don’t blind myself with admiration. I’m willing to bet I play Halo 2 more than most of you do through things such as Xlink Kai, Xbox Connect, and Vista. I love the game, but I think it’s incredibly dishonest to blindly defend something such as most of you do. It’s also disgraceful to the game its self. It’s like arguing that a fat lady is thin instead of just saying “I still think she’s beautiful.”)
