Worst Halo Games

Halo is a popular first person shooter series which I loved, but some games were not as good as others. Here is the worst Halo games.

The Top Ten

1 Halo 4

I won't lie this game was not very good, but it certainly isn't terrible. I would put his between 3 and Reach. This game made changes I LOVED. Change is bad now? This explains why Call of Duty AW failed. Nothing can change, it always has to stay the same, then.

This was the stupidest Halo game I have ever played! It's like 343 didn't even play Halo 1 2 and 3! First of all, Elites!? Seriously!? Secondly: The covenant speak their OWN language! I know they spoke their own language in Halo: Reach too, But that was a prequel! And the campaign was the worst story ever! Only noobs who started at Halo 4 would like this!

They killed multiplayer. They killed halo

This game should be destroyed - iliekpiez

2 Halo Wars

Don't you think this should be number 1 yes because this waste of around $10 is not even first person I mean halo is not a game where you are some guy killing covenant from a distance, halo 3 odst should be no.2 this I don't have time writing so go to number 1

The people are just jealous because they don't get the controls and gameplay and throw a tantrum because they are dumb

Honestly, I would normally not care about this game and think it's a good idea, if it wasn't already done before. This is literally the same thing as the Supreme Commander series, and Supreme Commander does it better. Much better. Halo needs to stay an FPS and not a strategy game like Supreme Commander. - username34

The only two I don't like at all are this and Halo 5, but due to some good updates for 5 and a really great custom games and forge, I have to pick this one. It's not fun to play, it's not a good Halo or RTS game, it's boring and lackluster, and it's easily the most forgettable main game. The only good thing about it is it's decent story and epic cutscenes. Otherwise, it's just a waste.

3 Halo 3: ODST

I don't hate any of the halo games. Each one of them has there own charm. I think halo wars was ok for breaking Halo's FPS system and had some of the best looking cutscenes that look as good as Halo 4 even and the gameplay was solid. Don't know why everyone gives it so much hate. Halo 4 was also ok but was sort of a letdown with it's weak multiplayer. It's campaign could have also been better the pelican flying was too easy so I think it's the second worse. I make ODST the worst because there wasn't much done to it. The story and gameplay was good but the graphics were the same as Halo 3. Also the two things you can do is the campaign and firefight so there wasn't much variety. Like everyone says it should have been a DLC. I don't hate it, but it was the weakest in the entire franchise.

Hands down this is the worst Halo I have ever played, Halo 3 was the second worst, why Halo 4 is in 3rd confuses me that was an awesome game. Halo 3 ODST worst Halo in my opinion

I got this game expecting something fun and enjoyable. But when I finished it made me feel like I wasted my time.

Only one that I particularly DON'T like. Yes, I HAVE played Evolved, 2, 3, 4, 5, ODST, wars, Reach and even 3 Mythic

4 Halo 5: Guardians

WHY IS THIS EVEN HERE? Sure... there might be no split-screen. WHO CARES> The storyline was boss, the new moves were boss, and the combat specs were great. No matter what anyone says, this will always be a great game.

It hasn't even come out yet - Tylerlangford1234

Hate this game so much! Halo 4, odst, and Reach were the best so I don't get you!

Sucks - iliekpiez

5 Halo Spartan Assault

Spartan Assault is an absolute joke. Let's just say, "if it's on Steam, it's not Halo."

How Isn't This Number One? , It's A Game For 5 YEAR OLDS! - VideoGamefan5

How isn't this 1

Wasn't an fps, and it didn't even pull off a good non fps halo game like halo 3

6 Halo Reach

THIS is the halo game EVERYONE played the most! I mean the campaign is sad yeah but it's still awesome! Then everyone would be playing Big Team Battle or Infection. then forge... Looking at files for new creations then seeing hundreds of new maps! This game was a RISE in the halo series - Zombieman99

This game has the utmost best multiplayer in the series. Granted, the story isn't the best, but the multiplayer is awesome. - username34

This one is amazing, a true halo game

People hate this game because of 40 pages at the end of a 200+ paged book that didn't focus on the actual battle.

7 Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary

There is something you forgot, username34; this adds Xbox live multiplayer, which the original did not have. And Xbox Live multiplayer makes the first game even better.

It's the same as Combat Evolved, but with better graphics. That's it. Honestly kind of a waste of money. - username34

8 Halo: Spartan Strike
9 Halo Wars 2
10 Halo 6

Seriously why is Halo 6 here? Halo 5 its not even out yet and Halo 6 don't even exist yet! - CanadianGuy99

Well it will be the next 3 to 4 years and pray the last main halo game of the series. - htoutlaws2012

Halo 5 is not even out! - venomouskillingmachine

Does this even exist? - Skullkid755

11 Halo 2

Best story, awesome multiplayer. The cliff hanger alone isn't even enough to warrant #10, whats putting it at #4? Is it too mainstream, or are the Call of Duty fan boys salty because they can't hip-fire?

This was one of the best games in the series!

This game was amazing for its time and still is a great game

The original trilogy is phenomenal - iliekpiez

12 Halo 3

Why is this even on the list? This was one of the best Halo games!

This is with out a doubt the worst halo in the history of halos. Clunky aiming system slow down to a snails place and if you weren't playing lan you may as well forget it. Sloppy build sloppy execution plain and simple.

This game is awesome... but the worst in the halo franchise. This is an indication of how great halo is beyond compare to the fps genre. The issue was the only thing I would say bad in anything to do with halo, was the horrible flood additions and forms. Tank forms were just huge slow bullet sponges, and the others were pointless and boring

13 Halo: Combat Evolved

Why is this even on here. Without this game, the rest of them would make no since. - username34

This game was outstanding at the time, and while games have come a long way since CE, I still think that it should be #1 because it really is one of the most groundbreaking games out there and without it we might not have made the advancements that we have.

Come on, this is the game that started it all! Why the hell is it on this list! - enderderp

14 Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Most of the old game work well, and its nice having all the campaigns. But halo 2 anniversary has the worst servers I have ever seen.

It's not halo 2's servers it's the whole game's servers in general can't find a single match - Zombieman99

This is the best one here, it has all the original Halos. Its OP

This is the best game

15 Halo

Best game ever
