Halos 4, 5 and 6 are Halos CE, 2 and 3

CE and 4 are beautiful vistas and moments wrapped around rough gameplay.

2 and 5 are character studies with much better tuned gameplay, but sweaty.

3 and 6 pull back on the gameplay intensity and finish the fight.

Edit: And I guess this makes Fireteam Raven = Halo 3 ODST.

XD
well if this were true that would mean i would absolutely love halo 5 but I don’t so…. :confused:

and halo 3 brought way more gameplay stuffs to halo than halo 2 so…… yeah….

and halk 2 has by far the best story while halo 5 has the worst

Hmmmm. Now you put it that way… you may have a point.

The comparisons are shallow at best. Still fun tho.

I stand by notion that, whether or not you liked it, Halo 5 branches out into many new character arcs much the same way 2 did. Very similar in that regard, again, even if you thought they did it poorly.

Tbh, Halo 2 and 5 are my favorites in the series overall. Halo 3 felt like a step down to me (it felt sloppy and clunky compared to H2s crisp smooth refreshing lemon-lime taste). Infinite, on the other hand, feels like it’s carrying the best of all of them in careful balance; a true candidate for a new golden age.

There are alot of parallels between Halo 2 and Halo 5.
Not a fan of Halo 2’s colossal cliffhanger ending though

When I said that I completely forgot about The Ark being namedropped, I take back what i said lmao

Many moons ago I tried to create a similar comparison between Bungie’s Halo trilogy and 343i’s.

Unfortunately I can’t find my original notes… but offhand…

Halo: CE / Halo 4

  • Encounter alien threat (the Covenant). - Crash land on ancient Forerunner structure (Halo / Requiem). - Encounter third faction partway through the game (the Flood / the Prometheans)Halo 2 / Halo 5: Guardians

  • Two protagonists (Master Chief & The Arbiter / Master Chief & Spartan Locke) - More interaction with third faction (The Gravemind / Warden Eternal / Created) - Game ending mission with non-Master Chief character (The Arbiter / Spartan Locke)
