Top Ten Halo Games With the Best Campaigns


The Top Ten

1 Halo 2

Very underrated campaign, It ends on one of the best lines in gaming history "Sir, finishing this fight." Then ending on such an epic cliff hangar.

So nice to see this one on top. It's hard to pick between this and Halo 3. By itself, Halo 3 beats it by a nose, but when you consider the two as two parts to a single narrative, Halo 2 is ultimately a more enjoyable, and memorable experience. - Deckard

Just epic and so mutch fun!

Definitely the best Halo campaign & story.

In fact this is my favourite game of all time!

2 Halo 3

1) Halo 3

2) Halo: Reach

3) Halo: Combat Evolved

4) Halo 2 (Poor ending, and felt incomplete)

5) Halo 3: ODST (Overrated, in my opinion, but better than the next few on the list)

6) Halo 4

7) Halo Wars

8) Halo 5: Guardians

9) Halo Spartan Strike

10) Halo Spartan Assault

3 Halo: Combat Evolved

By far the best. Halo 3 is close but for me the difficulty of this purely because of no hijack and banshees pushes this above the rest. Love all the games. Not a bad one made by bungie but this campaign takes the biscuit in my opinion.

Best level design

4 Halo: Reach

I really disliked Reach's campaign when I first played it. I was annoyed that the story totally did not line up with the events in the book. I also thought it was boring to playthrough. Now though? I just overlook the obvious contradictions because the story in and of itself is good when not compared with the book. Bungie did a great job of putting the player in the shoes of a Spartan three, whose makeup is weaker than say, the Master Chief. The Covenant feel much stronger in this game, particularly the Elites. You're fighting a battle you already know you're going to lose (if you're even the least bit informed with the Halo canon). As the game progresses, the Covenant are too numerous to deal with. At one point you have to watch a large number of escaping civilians get slaughtered. It's definitely the saddest Halo campaign by Bungie. I used to not care that much for the members of Noble Team. But now I appreciate the subtle emotion and personality they all have. And though I found ...more

You can put yourself in a suit, and fight on an elite team that completes cool objectives. Plus the graphics are nice and firefight is so much fun. Multiplayer isn't even much worse that halo 3. I thought it was just as good.

5 Halo 4

The gameplay may have been pretty inferior to the past Halo games, but the story of Cortana and Chief's relationship was amazing. I didn't feel this way at first because I was put off by Cortana's rather sexualized appearance (which was me being shallow, I guess) and for some stupid reason I thought they were shipping the two together. But really, her appearance symbolically serves a good purpose: the contrast between her being the more "human" character and the Chief being the emotionally repressed soldier encased in a half-ton of armor. And it's clear that the love they have for one another is platonic, which makes the story that much more impactful considering all the millions of times the romantic trope has been used (especially in video games). I honestly think 343 did an excellent job of showing the Chief's human side through his special relationship with her.

Super super fun. I would highly recommend this campaign to anyone. Only problem was fighting the forerunners. Not hard to kill, just annoying

6 Halo 3: ODST
7 Halo 5: Guardians
8 Halo Wars
9 Halo: Spartan Strike

I believe it has a good story if you forget it is a simulation. and look at the story it is a true halo game
