Before you identify this as a repeat thread, it's not. Halo has been put down as one of the best FPS games of all time and the best selling of all time. NOT by me. By the media, by everyone else. So do you think this game will be enough to take the place as the best FPS game of all time, or as the media likes to call it, the "Halo Killer"?

Oh My God, it really is a repeat thread. And the contention that Halo is the 'best FPS of all time' is complete arse IMO.

I'd be really happy to see Halo not be mentioned on this forum for a while... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

So do you think Haze might be able to take that place?

Using Halo as the gold standard for FPS games is a bit like using Volvo semi-trucks as the standard for the automobile industry at large. It's a purpose built vehicle but that purpose does not serve all consumers.

I'm not trying to put Halo on a pedestal. While I see it as a great game, I DEFINITELY don't see it as the best.

No, and for the reasons you stated - although plenty of people seem to think Halo is this amazing game, (although I'm not sure many reviewers worth their salt would really plump for it being best FPS ever), they don't seem to be able to back up why it's so amazing, including most of the glowing reviews for it. I see even Edge have given it a 10, (this is the magazine with a total of about six 10/10's in the last ten years BTW, Halo being one, HL2 and Gran Turismo being others and the rest falling to the Zeldas and Marios IIRC), to which I reply WTF?!

Halo 3 is a sequel, isn't really shining graphically, (I doubt even the most rabid Halo fan would say it betters GeoW graphically), and doesn't seem to bring much new to the table, besides a few new weapons, a limited map-builder, (or map re-arranger as I would have described it), and an admittedly nice ability to video your matches. Where that all translates into a 10 I really don't know, although the Edge reviewer fawning all over the size and expense of the marketing spend in the first paragraph makes me wonder.

To get back to Haze, no I don't think it even approaches a Halo-killer, not because it can't or won't be a better game than Halo, (that's not even the point), but because it doesn't have the kudos of being a launch-game, the support of a second sequel, the backing of a rabid fan-base or the marketing spend of a small country, not to mention the muscle of one of the world's largest corporations as it pushes the game for all it's worth to prop up it's not-actually-selling-all-that-well-really second console.

On the other hand, it would be really nice to see CoD4 really hand Halo 3 it's *** this Christmas, but even then I don't see it happening, no matter how good that game, or any other FPS is. Just let the Halo fans keep their delusion about the utter amazingness of their little game and we can get on with playing the utter amazingness of ours. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'm not saying Halo has poor graphics, just not format-leading graphics, although it's perhaps unfair to compare it to GeoW which isn't pushing near the same geometry or characters on screen.

From what I've seen I wouldn't say Haze has the absolute best graphics I've seen on the PS3 either, but I'm not expecting it to have and don't care anyway. It's the least important factor for me where this game is concerned, and in most other games as well.

Yup, Free Radical has managed to make an FPS where there's so much in the gameplay, you don't have to really worry about the graphics. Go FRD!

Btw, the Blacksaw is awesome. Just throwing that out. Is it a chaingun also? Because when shot it makes a chain sound and the top of it has ridges that resemble a chain.

I'd argue GeoW had those though - it was massively marketed and was the first 360-only game that was a real system-seller IMO.

@ Sevenlast - I whole-heartedly agree, that's the whole point.

In my opinion the only games out there with the chance of 'killing' Halo 3 (what exactly does that mean??), are the franchises that already have massive fan bases. Gran Turismo (maybe...not everyone's a racing buff), Grand Theft Auto 4 - Hands down, this SHOULD beat Halo 3 in sales, without a doubt (Benefit of a multi-platform fan base, and a multi-platform launch). And CoD4 - Now, since I'm no Halo fan, I can't really say this with 100% accuracy, but I _think_ the COD/MOH franchises are vastly more popular than Halo, however, with CoD4 NOT incorporating WW2 simulation, they may suffer a loss of their fan base as well, me included. IW/EA and the like really eff'd up the CoD/MoH games by catering so greatly to the consoles (IE. CoD2's utter failure on PC, due to near zero developement from IW, resulting in a world-wide ban on CoD servers for a solid day w/ 75% efficacy.) Long story short, I think that the only real game out there with a chance of beating Halo 3 (in sales...again, I'm not sure what we're talkign about with 'killing' Halo...the series ended...doesn't that infer death?) is the GTA dynasty, and that's merely due to the multi-platform availability.

Well, under normal circumstances any game that's sequel or newest edition hits 'game of the year' status when on multi-platform, should be able to exceed the sales of a exclusive title. However, as I stated above, the CoD franchise has had many ups and downs. A large portion of the PC fan-base that accrued after CoD:UO, were extremely pissed off at how CoD2 was handled by the publisher, and as such, pretty much abandoned the game (just as the publisher did for the PC). In turn, alot of the people I've conversed with who host servers, have actually indicated that there's less likelihood of them buying into CoD4, and furthermore any game from IW, due to this fact. Now, add into it, the fact that CoD4 is not a WW2 sim, like the previous CoD titles, and you've got even less of a fan base. So, I count CoD4 out of the running for beating Halo sales. Now, GTA4, on the other hand...just from the controversy that those games usually stir-up...well, I buy them just because of the controversy haha....so yeah, I definitely think that of any game out there, GTA4, is really the only 'Halo 3' killer....

deded999
10-02-2007, 12:13 PM
According to Wikipedia, (not utterly reliable, but anyhow), Halo is 38th in the list of best-selling games franchises. Even if Halo 3 sells ten million copies, Halo would barely break the top 20. As for single game numbers it comes in as best-selling FPS, (Halo 2), but only 19th in the list of best selling console games. And that's if you actually take sales as your marker.

In which case FFXIII, GTA4, Super Mario Galaxy or Gran Turismo could beat Halo in sales, to name but a few.

I wouldn't count CoD4 out just yet either, despite what the PC crowd might think of it.

A few reasons why Haze will not be a Halo killer.

1. More people either have the Wii or Xbox 360 because its cheaper and (so far) more good games. (I like the PS3 more though)...

2. Unless Haze has the characters, its not going to be very cool. Gameplay is a big thing but if your running around shooting random guys as like (just throwing somethin random out here) some mutated snail frog then its going to be ******ed. As far as Halo goes, Master Chief is a cool character, he looks cool, talks cool, acts cool, and is simply, cool.

3. We need some features.
Cool map editors (very detailed).
Able to record all matches and save them.
Bunch of good weapons.
Cool online play features.
New stuff to video games such as, (few ideas in my head). If you press a button on you controller, a small screen comes up showing what your teammate is doing on an online match or co-op. Sattelite radar, you see the actual map detailed on you radar. etc.

unfortunately i voted no. Although i think this game will be far better than halo3 i know for a fact that it wont outsell halo. reason being is because there isn't nearly as many people who own a ps3 compared to those who own 360. Although i think we can all agree ps3 is the far superior system it just isnt convenient for people who want a gaming system to spend that much money and that is why ps3 games wont outsell 360 games. 360 is more affordable and i doubt people will go out of their way to get a ps3 just because they want to play haze. but in my opinion if haze and halo were to be compared for best FPS game.... haze would win by a long shot.

As has been stated before, there really isn't any 'killing' Halo...it's a wild success amongst Xbox fans, and M$ knows how to feed that drug to the masses. Haze will most likely do well in sales, and may very well sell PS3's for Sony, but kill Halo...probably not. Look to GTA5 to carry that torch.

First off, you can't kill halo. No matter what comes out, halo will still sell, the next bungie game will sell, and for years and years it will be very popular on the xbox live.

secondly.. you all talk about how much better haze is.. even tho you haven't played it. It's ubi's attempt to copy halo and change things around abit. Hell i've seen vihicles in videos that are exact copys of halo vehicles.

I'm not saying haze wont be a good game, I'll get it eventually, but wait to play it before you praise it like god.

and no, the playstation is not a better platform.

and lastly.. Bioshock is better then both halo or haze.

TU16
11-03-2007, 09:46 PM
Bioshock is better than Halo but I'm not sure if it's better than Haze. In actuality, Haze seems to be one of the few upcoming games around that will challenge Bioshock on a... shall I say... literary level. At the same time, I feel that Haze will undoubtedly bring forth superior gameplay. Thus, it then comes down to the ability of Haze to immerse players. For the record, I would rank Crysis (barely- I love Bioshock dearly, it is a truly amazing game) above Bioshock for GotY if Crysis's demo is a good indicator of what the game will be like (of course Bioshock will win in the narrative part, but Crysis's gameplay is just so excellent, so vastly superior to Bioshock's... its gameplay also bleeds heavily over into immersion, and when you combine the amazing graphics with that gameplay-based immersion, you get a game that's every bit as immersive as Bioshock, but for different reasons).

Anyway, as far as a "Halo Killer", Timesplitters 4 would be more likely to do that than Haze, simply because the TS series offers gameplay more along the lines of what Halo does, and TS4 is already getting a fair amount of respect even though no one outside of FRD really knows anything about it other than that it will mock games and monkeys pwn. If FRD can really deliver with TS4 (even more so than they did w/TS2 and TS: FP- and I know they can) then I think you will really see the first, true challenge to Halo (especially if it's fully multiplat).

Anyway, as far as Halo 3 goes... meh. I'd already rate Team Fortress 2, Bioshock, and Metroid Prime 3 above it (Crysis, Call of Duty 4, and Unreal Tournament 3 will also undoubtedly be above it- I've played demos for both, but have not played the retail version of either, because they're not on shelves yet; and those are just the shooters that are definitely going to be above it- Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts and Mario Galaxy are two other games that I would rate above Halo 3).

Games can get great reviews based on merit, you know (for example, Company of Heroes, Bioshock- as you mentioned- Portal, etc...). Anyway, when talking about a Halo Killer, you're not really talking about review scores. You're talking about the ability to attract a vast fan base. And I think TS4 could feasibly do that. However, I feel that Haze is perhaps simply too deep a game to be able to do that (sadly; but Bioshock's commercial success provides hope).

However, I feel that Haze is perhaps simply too deep a game to be able to do that (sadly; but Bioshock's commercial success provides hope).
<span class="ev_code_RED">yes, but me being a "ps3 fanboy" i would rather prefer the "halo 3 killer" game is a ps3 game (exclusive) instead of bioshock and portal being pc games (bioshock also for 360) since the console wars, so i would prefer it to be a hyped game such mgs4 or killzone 2. gta4 easily could also be the "halo 3 killer" but its multipaltform game now so wouldnt mean as much to "ps3 fanboys" like myslef</span>

I actually wasn't proffering Bioshock, Portal, etc... as potential Halo Killers. I was just noting that they were not parts of series (not yet anyway) and still attained very good reviews. Like I said, the only thing I really see with potential to be a Halo Killer atm is TS4.

And...? TS4 would be as well (and do note, I didn't even suggest the OB/Portal is a Halo Killer)- multi-plat would actually improve something's chances of being a Halo Killer.

why is everyone so bent on killing halo anyways? why really cares what other people buy? I have halo, it's a fun game, first 4 player co-op, c'mon, it's a cool game.

yankees, patriots, halo, they're all the giants, everyone just loves to hate the giants.

sadly, I don't think anything can kill halo in the way everyone here is talking about, but a game like Haze will be a console seller and give Halo and games like it some very good competition. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif

It's not coming out for the 360, but the pc is another story. Still a PS3 exclusive up to date. There will be good sales when it comes out for the PS3 and there will be many more PS3 owners due to the price drop.

it's coming out for the 360 next year, I doubt they'd throw away all the work they have done already porting it to the 360. Plus, Has ubisoft put any game on as an exclusive? I can't think of one off hand.. but i've been drinking http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Haze cant kill halo, they dont have the advertisement money to back the game up like bungie had with microsoft. I swear every other commercial was for halo 3 to buy it before it was released and such. It got annoying but it was effective. On the release night the news media even covered the game stores. But Haze will give a good competition http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. I never liked fighting aliens and little creatures. Half-life sorta killed that for me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
