Halo VS. Battlefield 1942

hey guys,

im just now getting into online gaming and wanted to know if HALO or Battlefield 1942 is a better online game to play. Ive been hearing good on both sides and i dont know which one I wanna get. I mean Halo seems cool and all, but isnt there only like 4 different enemies? And is Battlefield really as in depth as it seems, with being able to use AA guns, and ships, and planes, and trucks, etc.

Help is appreciated.

hmm this is pretty hard to compare, theyre alot different when you actually play them. well lets see: halo is ALOT more fun than bf1942. i think anyone can agree, but the multiplayer for battlefield is definetely better. see halo is basically deathmatch, its honestly nothing special. battlefield 1942 is ONLY good for online multiplayer, but all the server practically lag. plus halo 2 is coming out like reallly really soon, so its worth getting that. battlefield 2 is also coming out which youll like also.but there are alot better online games than those. if your computer can handle it, i suggest getting half life 2. not only does half life 2 look like loads of fun, it has a huge gaming community. it has counter-strike, dayof defeat, team fotress (probably) and there are other modifications that people play. so if you want a huge diverse gaming community for the price of 1 game, wait for half life 2. i dont suggest bf1942, youll be disappointed that its not that great, it looks cool, but really isnt. halo 2 is coming out so its not even worth getting halo at this point. and if you want halo 2, you have to have xbox live to play multiplayer.

If you get into a good community for 1942 it owns. I never liked halo, because it's just pure chop. I'm in a 1942 clan, with like 60 other guys, and it's been fun, prolly mostly cause we keep on chatting. Download Teamspeak RC2 and get involved into specific servers/clans and 1942 is the way to go. (BTW, the clan's IP address for Teamspeak is 67.18.179.164 )

halo online sucks

1942 i never run into lag at all you must have a really slow conn ja289

1942 is tanks buggies jeeps SHIPS SUBMARIENES planes(all types)

dc(desert combat) has basicly all of the above and hellicopters

btw to fly helicopters you are going to need a joy stick and it will help for planes to

you can fl planes without a joystick fairly easy

bf1942 is so much better. halo is spray and pray and no tactics.

BF1942 and Halo BOTH have TERRIBLE online hitboxes. Online with Halo, you can stand in front of someone who is AFK, TAKE YOUR TIME, aim at the head, and it will miss them. From 2 feet away. It's bad.

BF1942 has horrible hitboxes as well. Overall not that good of a game either, it's laggy as hell....I don't like it too much.

May I suggest other games for you?

Games more like Halo style - Unreal Tournament 2k3/2k4, Quake3, Painkiller

Games more like BF1942 style - Call of Duty, Counter-Strike, BF:Vietnam is ok as well

^^^ agree with everything prophet said. Sniper is useless in 1942.

A game you might wanna check out that I love for multiplayer is the Rainbows Six Rogue Spear. It's awesome.
