Yeah sure it has bumped up graphics and Xbox live, but surely it is just the same as The first Halo. Should I choose this over Gears of War 3?
Should I get this or Gears of War 3?
Well, obviously enough, the answer is: Which franchise do you like better?
From another angle, Gears 3 will be an entirely new game, and it may be the best one yet, or a middling disappointment. Can't be sure until it actually comes out. On the other hand, unless 343 is planning on pulling a fast one on us, Anniversary is going to play out just like Halo: Combat Evolved, so whether you get that one or not at all should depend on how much you still enjoy that game.
I'm a big Halo fan and I say Gears of War 3. Have you seen the new features? 4 player co-op, expanded horde mode, dedicated online servers, wider player customization. I just feel like with sixty bucks your still getting more. Then again, my friends are buying it, and I always buy multi-player games my friends buy.
Halo CE is pretty much for the big Halo fans. If you love Halo, get this. I can't wait to play it co-op online w/a friend and find all the entry clues for Halo 4.
Other than that, Gears 3 will be a greater value. Sposed to be huge in terms of campaign, Horde mode, and server based mp...should be awesome as well. And it is out more than 2 months before CE. Get both when you can imo.
Gears. I have never fully played Halo CE before (shocking I know) but Gears of War 3 willl be an entirely new game and is the end to the trilogy, while Halo is just a revamped version of the original.
Reverse the situation. If Gears had already come out before Halo and this was Halo 3 coming out and Gears 1 was being re-done, which would you get?
