The Hardest/Best Halo Campaign

IGN has lost the last shred of respect that I had for them with these 2 articles. "The Best Halo Campaign" and "The Hardest Halo Campaign" (can be found here) , in which Halo CE ranks last for for hardest and second to last for the best campaign above Halo 2, so basically they're saying it was the easiest to beat with the worst campaign. Outrageous. So I just wanted to know what REAL gamers think about these two questions, because for some reason I really doubt that any of  the IGN staff even had the testicular fortitude to play through Halo CE solo on Legendary.

In my opinion it should go somewhat like this;

 

Hardest: Halo CE - I've beaten every Halo campaign on Legendary multiple times, and CE was and still is by far the hardest.

 

Best: Halo 2 (with CE in a very close second)

 

They gave Reach the vote for hardest and best campaign, which IMO is completely undeserved.

What? Well I never played 1 and 2, but Reach wasn't hard at all. I think 3 was harder than reach (on solo legendary).

I really have no idea how they came to that conclusion, you have 4 invincible AI buddies helping you through the majority of the campaign. How could anyone possibly find that difficult? Granted I died a handful of times playing through Reach on Legendary, but it wasn't that challenging.

 

I see they judged the difficulty by looking mainly at co-op. Well yeah, in that case 3 is easier than Reach.

 

At least from what I remember. Most hard parts you could just leave your buddy behind and let the teammates just run to their death.

I can't speak for Legendary as I simply don't have the patience for that difficulty, but on Normal I found Reach to be harder than the others. Halo 2 was really easy, easier than Halo: Comat Evolved. Halo 3 wasn't really hard either. I'd say Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 3, then Halo 2. From most difficult to easiest, for me personally.

Halo 2 that game was my favorite multi player game but Halo 1 campaign was simply supreme. A piece of art.

Having yet to play 1 or 2 but after I get HALO CE 10th Ann. I might garb 2 for PC. I would rank it in this order for what I have played.

Halo 3, Halo ODST, Halo Reach for difficulty

For best campaign I would rate it Reach, ODST, Halo 3

Best Campaign - Halo CE

Difficulty - Halo 3


I stopped playing after Halo 3, so I can't judge the difficulty of the sequels. The single-player legendary campaign in Halo 3 pretty much killed off my urge to play.

Best Campaign would have to be Halo ODST

Hmm, kinda a toss up for the "best". I enjoyed both Halo CE and Halo 3 equally as the "best" Campaign. Halo 2 was by far the worst with it's stupid "cliff-hanger" ending and broken story between the Arbiter and Chief.

 

The most difficulty by far was Halo 3 Legendary by yourself. I finished all of the Halos on Legendary and alone with the exception of Halo 3 (the Cortana/ Flood Level). After getting killed for the 1,000th time, I said forget it and haven't tried it since.

Halo: CE had the best campaign, imo.

Halo 3 is the only Halo-game I haven't completed on legendary (f**k you, Cortana!).
