Halo 2 was the hardest. There were the Legendary jackal snipers and you had that fight against Regret. I think my brother and I spent like 6 hours on that friggen thing. At least with the snipers you could memorize their locations. Plus the flood in Halo 2 were so nasty you often just camo'd through and avoided them entirely when you had the option.

I think maybe Halo: CE's was the hardest beneath that, but to be honest it's difficult to tell because I haven't played it in so many years, and I will have gotten better since then. I need to play through that thing again, I've barely touched my copy of Anniversary that I will have had for a year this Christmas (I was angry when I found out it was just re-skinned Reach, including the slug-like movement speed).

Halo 4 had some respectably difficult moments, like when you have to destroy those three power cores guarded by covenant. You're surrounded by covenant and they give you a banshee but for some reason the covenant NEVER miss that thing with teamshot. I remember Halo 3's campaign being relatively easy, but very fun. I thought Reach's campaign was excellent story-wise (They made a fight you knew was hopeless seem meaningful, that's a bit of a feat from a narrative perspective), it was technically impossible to survive the last level :), and I remember struggling with the drones.

With Halo 3 and Reach though I just played them as much as I had to and spent all my time on Matchmaking. Same with Halo 4, although I think it's by far the weakest campaign of all of them. It had some tough parts, but the rewards for that work were terrible - you just got more campaign! The final fight was despicable. The level with the mammoth was actually extremely stupid if you took a moment to see how scripted the enemy behavior was. It was all just stupid. I kinda hated the campaign in Halo 4, and not because it was hard.

I don't remember how hard ODST was, but I remember liking the campaign. The ODSTs weren't that much weaker than spartans really, and in some ways they were much stronger (Yank out a turret and run if you want to make the chief cry). They got two weapons which have never appeared in a Halo game since then, and both of the weapons were very strong. Bit of a shame really. It was also designed for Co-op, and I think that made the campaigns progressively easier. I'm not sure I beat Halo 3: ODST solo on Legendary, I think I might have but I'm not sure. If it's an achievement I got it though. I loved the Firefight, too bad they've brought back the Brute Chopper, that thing was badass.

The real trouble with judging their difficulty compared to each other is that Halo 2 is sort of obviously the hardest, but after that you know you got better from game to game and you can't know how difficult the campaigns are now without replaying them all. Thankfully Halo 4's was the more recent campaign, so I won't have to play that piece of crap again to remember. Just need to run it co-op to get my achievements and then I'll never have to (L) to crawl again.

Halo CE. Two words. The library.

Also this was in the days of the truth and reconciliation. That mission trying to hit the grav lift past the hunters just to be thrown into elites invisible with swords? If you haven't played it in awhile play it again and then tell me it was easy.

The library was tedious, but not too bad. But yeah truth and reconsiliation was hands down the toughest level in the game.

Halo 2 by far. If you came across a Jackal Sniper or a Duel Wielding Plasma Rifle Elite, you were screwed. You die so fast in that game. It didn't help that there were 15 missions.

I had a thought. A lot of people don't even remember Halo CE and its glory days. No wonder they only remember Halo 2 as the toughest.

I do. You're not the only one who played CE. But people have different opinions. Halo 2 had easy missions and hard ones, as every Halo so far.

No I know... Just sometimes I feel old. I mean I'm not but... You wanna know the HARDEST game I've ever played on the hardest setting? Call of Duty : Modern Warfare 1. That part where you're by the Ferris wheel trying to hold out with the injured captain? And forget about the last plane mission escaping on veteran... It's impossible. I know it's off topic. I was just saying...

I've been playing through the Halo games on Legendary.

Halo 2 - Just beat on Co-op

Halo 3 - N/A

Halo 3: ODST - Complete

Halo Reach - Complete

Halo Wars - Complete

Halo 4 - Complete

I'm not really sure which is hardest. Each one has their moments.

In Halo 1, the Covenant ship is proving to take a couple weeks to push through. [Save Captain Keyes] Low ammo and health.

Halo 2, the jackals did not prove a challenge for me in the least. It almost seemed..... too easy.

Halo 3? Flood sections,definitely.I foresee that.

Halo 3: ODST, later sections of the game, around the area of dead Elites. That portion of the game was aggravating.

Halo Reach had its moments, but ultimately was simple. The very end was troublesome, due to infiltrating the cannon's warehouse with nothing but a plasma pistol. All other ammo was gone.

Halo Wars was simple enough, and took a little bit of planning and foresight. The mission leading into the crater proved frustrating.

Halo 4... anything that involved large numbers of Promethean Knights... and close quarters with them. They loved to blink up to me and gut me.

 

Looking forward to finishing up the games on legendary and moving on to 5 and 6. I don't think I play the games on Normal anymore...

 

maybe I should try Mythic next...


Halo on Legendary:

 

Halo 1 (Complete), Halo 2 (N/A), Halo 3 (N/A)

CE. I thought the Flood were the hardest on that game and it was hard to figure out where you were supposed to go. I found that you were more vulnerable in that game, as your health didn't regenerate along with your shields.

HAHAHAA YES! I am not looking forward to running that on Legendary! Normal was bad enough! XD

 

Taking out the shield generators will be frustrating. Such small and crowded rooms.

I never played H2 or H3 but I played ODST's and it was incredibly hard! Every time I walked out in the street, I fell over dead.
