View Full Version : Halo, CoD, or Gears Multiplayer?

Which franchise do you think has the best mulitplayer?

04-03-2009, 12:01 PM
Call of Duty without a doubt :).

i'd say call of duty is the most addictive but it's hard to say what i prefer more out of COD or Gears. halo i hardly play. if i had to pick one i'd say COD mainly because it's easier and i can atleast get some XP during each match whilst gears i have good matches and have bad ones.

Haven't played CoD. Played some Halo with a friend. Gears online STINKS HARD.
So I guess Halo it is.

i play all three of them often and i prefer halo out of the 3

Prefere Halo, probs cause i stink at gears and COD and i can actually play decent on halo.

Halo - Bores me quickly. I have to admit i have had some really funny moments while playing online.

Cod4 - Probably the 2nd best after R6V2. but the respawn system really gets up my nose.

Gears 2 - I both love and hate it. It can be the most satisfying and infuriating at the same time. weapon inconsistency and lag are what let it down the most.
But there is nothing more satisfying in a shooting game than being the last man alive in your team and taking out 3 or more of the opposing team single-handedly and gears sets that situation up perfectly.

I loved COD4, but hate W@W.

Halo 3 i randomly started playing again recently, thanks to the mythic maps i got with halo wars.

never played gears online, not heard good things about it.

guess it's got to be Halo that i enjoy the most then.

Cod4 - Probably the 2nd best after R6V2. but the respawn system really gets up my nose.

You think that grinds your gears? Go play CoD: WaW where more often than you'd like, you respawn right in front of the enemy thats already shooting. Or you respawn in the middle of an enemy air strike. After 4-5 of those in a match, you want to snap the cd in half...

The only thing that's cool about WaW is nazi zombies. For 10 minutes.

Halo is ugly.

Call of Duty 4 or Gearas of War 1

I have only played CoD5 round a mates, but you can have good and bad games on each of them, the fact that they are all different means I have 3 different multiplayer experiences to enjoy.

Most of the complaining about any online games usually follows someone getting owned...if that were the case with me I'd hate every game! ;)

Gears of War 1 is the best online, Gears 2 would be if it wasnt so laggy every f***ing match. :p

I'd have to say Halo 3; didn't care for the regenerating shield when I began playing but once you get familiar to the game it's actually great.

Unlike COD, you can usually afford to make small mistakes and recover. While in COD if you happen to make mistakes it'll usually cost you a life.

it all depends on the situation. i prefer cod4/gears when im just playing online with random ppl, but when i have friends over or i am at a friends house halo is best so u can all play at the same time online.

overall i would have to say halo, just cuz i always enjoy playing with my friends rather than by myself.

COD, hands down. Halo sucks and Gears is a good game, but only if you play with friends.

04-03-2009, 07:26 PM
Halo 3: And the easiest answer, is because it is the most consistent game out of the 3 to me, and thats something that I need in a game. Gears and CoD dont have any type of life bars and that kills the experience for, especially in Gears when you have no clue if someone is near death. CoD is more consistent that Gears for sure, but Halo 3 is always the same.

I've never played COD to be honest, so between Halo and Gears, definitely Gears, I HATE Halo multiplayer.

04-03-2009, 07:56 PM
Halo to me is overrated I almost wanted to kill myself when getting 1000/1000 on it, Its seriously annoying cause 95% youre playing on that stupid snow map or guardian....ugh gets old...I do love my katana though

COD I guess makes you feel good about yourself cause you can get 1000 kills without even trying that hard

Gears is my favorite, even though it has some problems, its just more dynamic than the other two, lots of maps, and its just cooler

I would say CoD but for me, it's strictly MW (Modern Warfare).

So glad Infinity Ward got the choice to take out the Call of Duty prefix.

Right behind it is Halo 3 even though I haven't played that game in months. And, I hate gears. Sorry.

Halo- For me, it gets old when I put the disc in.

CoD- Haven't played it. (ANY of them)

Gears- I absolutely can't STAND Gears 1's multiplayer, but GOW2's multiplayer is very fun for me. I don't understand all the hate for it. I hardly have any laggy matches and I won't complain about chainsaw-noobs, because I have the exact same advantage they do. Nearly no problems for me in GOW2. But I HAAAAAAATE GOW1's.

But Gears is my favorite.

04-03-2009, 10:09 PM
Halo without a doubt, however I do enjoy the other games. I think CoD gets old for me since it's the same game every year.

04-03-2009, 10:11 PM
I prefer gears out of the three. Occasionally ill play CoD, but mostly gears.

04-03-2009, 10:25 PM
I loved both CoD4 an Halo multiplayer but Halo would be my fav overall

COD, its the most addicting. Halo and Gears are good too, but the challenges in Call of Duty are the thing that seperates it from the other two in my eyes.

This has been discussed TO DEATH...

If you want to find out which has the best, go play it yourself, some people like cod, some people like halo etc, there are also other titles that you didn't include that have great MP.

I want these game comparison games to end or ima throw something...
