Reach vs Black Ops

Help me pick guys. I know Black Ops is the hot thing, but I need to decide which one to pick up right now, and which one to wait for until christmas.

Try not to be fanboys, I am completely impartial and love both franchises. I absolutely hate when people get so passionate about their favorite games that they diss a hard-working game studio. (I know, THQ sucks, but they still make WWF No Mercy )

Anyway, HELP ME. I need facts and your personal experiences! 10,000 creds to the first 10 people to help me out. Rep for everyone else.


EDIT: Best advice gets 50k

Well you win either way. But I have a couple friends that traded Halo in for Black Ops. My personal opinion is Black Ops for its shere awsomness of its multi-player. Halo will always have the better game play but not by much if any with this new edition of COD. COD has worked out a lot of its kinks and did an over all great job......So COD: Black Ops is my pick.

If you're buying both games anyway, I say buy BO first. I haven't played Reach, but I have nothing bad to say about BO. Good SP so far, fun MP (even though I'm a noob). I like the concept of BO, even though I like Halo too, for me the past-war-type scenarious pulls me in more the game then science-fiction type of shooters.

I'd go for Black Ops over Reach, purely just cos the online will be buzzing at the minute since it has just been released.

Im planning on picking up a copy of reach in the next few weeks as i'll be able to get it cheap pre-owned when people trade it in for Black-ops

Okay this is how is it.

Being a pretty big fan of the Halo games I got Reach, I played it for a bit and it was honestly fun... for about 4 days. It was nothing like Halo 3. Even ODST was bad.

Now as for Call of Duty, since Call of Duty 4 I played the COD series ALOT, MW2 kinda killed it for me though because it got old quick.

If you liked Call of Duty: World at War then you will LOVE Treyarch's newest masterpiece, Call of Duty: Black Ops

With Wager match multiplayer, 15 prestige modes and the return of the highly anticipated Zombies mode, Black Ops is with out a doubt the best multiplayer game to ever be released. Yes, I understand this is a very bold statement but it is a statement that I fully agree with and stand behind 100%.

Theater mode btw adds that extra reply-ability which allows you to reach into the archive of every game you have EVERY played and show off your game to all your friends.

My choice would be to get Black Ops, and when you do, come play with the big boys, we will guide the way

Mod your xbox, get both free.


If you absolutely have to BUY one though, make it Black Ops. Halo hasn't changed since Halo 2 and reach got boring REALLY quick. Black Ops is just as addictive as the other CoDs, plus it plays way different than MW2 and it's not a tube/nade fest anymore. You actually have to have skill to win now.

You already probably got the game but I'ma throw my opinion in there anyways.

Reach was good compared to halo wars and odst which were both crap in my opinion.

1. Cod is WAY easier to move up in. It takes at most a couple of days to a week to prestege. In halo it looked like it takes a couple of days to get 1 or 2 lvls which to me personally is really boring.

2. Custimization: If you like custimizing more then just how your character looks go with Ops, you can put everything on your gun from the camo to the recticle color/shape in your red dot and everything in between.

But ya besides that its pretty much just preference when it comes to choosing .
