Before anyone calls me a fanboy, I've beat Halo 2, 3, Wars (doesn't really count), ODST and Reach on legendary Solo, and Modern Warfare 2 and 3 on Veteran.

Personally I think BioShock on Hard is more difficult than both of these games.
Halo on easy is harder than that.

Starting to think that you want to enforce your opinion and present it as the "ultimate truth" in a thread that's asking about people's opinions.

I've only completely reach solo so far, but I found that to be pretty tough.

Overall, probably tougher than COD, but COD has parts that are ridiculously hard (heart of the reich, damn you!)

COD feels like loads of little hard parts, just playing from checkpoint to checkpoint, Halo feels more like you need to play longer without messing up, and the damage the enemies can take is annoying too.

Edit: Left 4 dead is by far the hardest game I've tried to play on the hardest difficulty, only achievements I'm missing on L4D 1 and 2, must just suck at them I guess.

Halo has been harder for me, playing alone I mean. Probably the better enemy AI and shields make it harder. I've beaten every COD on veteran, except COD 3 and Black Ops 2, but BO2 is in progress. All other Halos have been finished on Legendary (mostly in co-op though), except Halo 2 and Halo 4. Haven't been able to play 4 yet.

I voted for CoD only because of WaW and Mile High Club. Halo 2 and 4 definitely make it a hard decision, though. I also accidentally picked CoD.

I think that its pretty hard to compare the two because there are so many games now, however you can compare a bit of a break down.

I would rate them like this on the hardest difficulties.
1. CoD 2
2. CoD WaW
3. CoD 1
4. CoD 3
5. Halo 3
6. CoD 4
7. Halo Reach
8. Halo 4
9. Halo ODST
10. CoD Black Ops
11-13. MW2, MW3, Black Ops 2 are just as easy as each other.

So, after rating that I would have to say that CoD used to be much harder than Halo and then has got increasingly easier whilst the difficulty of Halo has remained pretty constant. Although they have there own challenges. CoD's difficulty is often cheap AI, grenade spamming and utter bullshit, whilst the biggest difficulty in Halo can come from trying to manage ammo effectively and is a game where you can be more skillful and do better.

It's hard to say, some CoD's are harder than Halo, and vice versa... I think Halo 4 is harder than Black Ops 2 IMO

My reply didn't load for some reason. Short answer HALO.

The only CoD that I haven't finished on Veteran was/is CoD2. WaW gave me fits, but it was pretty much just time consuming. HALO on the other hand has always been a challenge for me on Legendary.

Halo's Legendary is relatively tough compared to most other games now-a-days, but CoD's Veteran is a joke now. The Campaigns have been getting easier since 4.

Difficulty of CoD campaigns:
CoD2 <- CoD:WaW <- CoD 4 <- CoD:BO <- CoD:MW2 <- CoD 1 <- CoD 3 <- CoD: MW3

I haven't really played BO2 yet though

Or call of duty games are just easy and are over hyped as "Hard" by the COD fanboys.

Wait until you get after the normady beach...I think I remember correctly but the level right after (where you have to control like 4 different spots) was a lot harder

I chose CoD because although they are both hard in their own ways. I feel like Halos difficulty is fair compared to CoD in which it is much more about luck getting through some frustrating parts.

I have to agree that Halo is consistant with it's difficulty and COD is just getting easier. WaW was hard as hell though and that will give Halo a run for it's money. But I have to say Halo wins this one.

Where would you put the first 2 Halos in that ranking?

I'm gonna say Halo's Legendary difficulty, because Elites aren't the same as the shooting gallery Russians and terrorists in Call of Duty. Plus, unlike Veteran, ENEMIES HAVE INCREASED HEALTH AND SHIELDS, it's not just you having lower health/them doing more damage. In Call of Duty, one or two shots from your pistol will still down a guy, but in Halo it'll take more to just down an enemy's shields.

Honestly I think COD games are harder, especially the older ones, the new ones not so much.

This is the best argument I have heard on here that nobody has said regarding this.

No matter what level of difficulty in COD one headshot to any enemy and he dies.

With Halo, the AI is harder and has more health with each increasing level of difficulty.

I think this argument pushes it over that Halo Legendary is harder than COD Veteran just for this reason

Call of Duty campaigns aren't really that hard on Veteran, except Call of Duty and Call of Duty 2. I gave up on that game it pissed me off so much.

I would say Call of Duty, but I feel like Halo is a lot easier to play as a first person shooter than Call of Duty. I think Halo is easier for non-gamers to pick up and still do alright on, and Call of Duty takes a bit more time to get used to.

I haven't really played BO2 yet though
Its comments like this that make me wish there were some requirements to post in this thread. He hasnt finished CoD 1 on veteran yet rates it the third easiest game? Hasnt even played CoD 3 yet has it as the 2nd easiest. Easier than MW2 and BO??

What a joke!

I have just finished Black Ops 2 on Veteran and have tried to play a few Legendary levels on Halo 4. No comparison at all with that game. Halo 4 on Legendary is crazy hard compared to Black Ops 2 on Veteran.

Really? Up to the point I stopped playing because of bored I got, Halo 4 on Legendary is a walk in the park compared to Black Ops II on Veteran.

For me it was the exact opposite, I initially thought I was playing on recruit. I even contemplated restarting the game just in-case.

It depends for me. I think the older COD's were harder, however Halo is now way more difficult.
