Halo vs CoD:BLops ... the Ultimate Grudge Match?

Well, "Ultimate" might be a strong word, especially for ME, considering I don't care for 1st person shooters much, but with the 2 mega games franchises - Halo and Call of Duty - releasing their next big installments within a week of one another, the big ad campaigns are unavoidable, so lets look at BOTH commercials and see which one moves you!

First - Halo 4, now developed by 343 Industries hit store shelves this past Tuesday, the 6th (election day)

... meh! ...

Next - Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, from Treyarch, comes out next week on the 13th of November.

Yeah, man! Fun, Catchphrases, Guest Stars, Explosions ... ZOMBIES?!? ... Now THAT is a commercial! ... Right on par with the original Cod:BLops "noob" commercial with Jonah Hill and Sam Worthington!

Needless to say, this is HUGE for videos games, particularly for the Microsoft X-box (the only place you can play Halo), especially now with the holiday season and people .... "asking for things" ... But the REAL winners will be the Game Stops, Best Buys, and Toys R' Us of the world. But, whatevz! I'm gonna lean towards Call of Duty, if I had to choose one, but I say - crack open those change jars and go out and get'em BOTH! You KNOW you deserve it!

  1. I think Halo 4's is a much more polished commercial, not to mention it was directed by David Fincher.

    Black Ops 2's commercial is kind of cheap looking and a little all over the place. Save for the ending with the zombies, that was pretty fun.

    Halo 4 has the better commercial IMHO.
