Halo 4, the COD Killer?

As most of you may know by now Halo 4 has officially dropped in stores across the globe.  And man, the addicting multiplayer along with the high production value in the campaign has got all of us at GamersBliss thinking that this game was designed to do one thing.  Take Call of Duty down.  Halo fans can say this for sure, yet COD fans would beg to differ. The interesting change in the release date only adds to the burning question.  The majority of Halo titles released on the Xbox 360 were released in September.  Of course this doesn’t count the Halo Anniversary Edition released last year yet we all know that game didn’t really target an audience as big as the new entry.  Seeing as the game has been released exactly 1 week before the new Call of Duty entry from Treyarch comes out.  Could Halo be giving COD a run for its money?

Is there a new Cheif in nuketown?

Is there a new Chief in Nuketown?

If anything can be said about Halo is that it isn’t Call of Duty.  Yet the frantic fast paced action that has been introduced to the beloved franchise seems to be a direct answer to the COD franchise.  While most gamers still may not enjoy Halo for the fact that it features big hulking lumberjacks in armor.  The industry and gamers must take note that the new entry directs Halo into new territory.  With a complete package wrapped into this 60 dollar game it truly overstates most of the titles to come out within the past year.  And lets be honest COD players the franchise has become rather stale with no new elements to really take the franchise to new heights.  Do you think Black Ops 2 will be able to deliver what Call of Duty games have done in the past and then some?  Or will the game meet mediocre standards of a basic COD game?  We will find out next week on launch day!

Halo 4 will be met with much hate from those who don’t play it.  That doesn’t change the fact that the Master Chief has become much bigger than Bungie ever could have imagined.  Both games are sure to break records in their own right however, Halo 4 might be taking some dollar signs from Call of Duty Black Ops 2.  So the burning question: is Halo 4 a COD killer?  Sound off below and stay tuned for our full review of the game which will be published on Thursday as well as our review of Black Ops 2 coming next week!
