‘Halo’ is one of those games that came and changed the face of gaming forever. It is considered to be one of the greatest first person shooters of all time and sold more than 65 million copies worldwide. The original trilogy has one of the best story-arcs in modern gaming, so much so that the more recent titles are having a hard time keeping up. This is one thing about video games that developers really need to focus on some more. It’s one thing to dish out a successful title but a completely different thing to continuously follow it up with equally successful ones. This is a huge issue that developers need to address and we need to understand.
However, since the recent ones were not as good, we decided to make a list for you guys, which has games that are similar in style and tone to ‘Halo’. Keep in mind that these are not exactly the same but do share a lot of gameplay elements; so if you are a fan of ‘Halo’, then you will definitely enjoy playing through these. Here’s the list of video games similar to Halo that are our recommendations. You can play these games like Halo on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, iPhone, Android, mac or even online.
6. Destiny 2 (2017)
If you are looking for stuff like ‘Halo’ to play on modern consoles, then you can’t really go wrong with ‘Destiny 2’, another popular game developed by Bungie studios. The sci-fi setting of both the games is not the only thing that’s similar, IMHO. The fluid combat mechanics and the weapons that you are able to access throughout the course of the game feel like an ode to the ‘Halo’ series. However, ‘Destiny 2’ is multiplayer only and always requires an internet connection to be able to play. But do not let this take anything away from the experience of the game, since the multiplayer only aspect adds to the overall experience.
You play the role of the ‘Guardians’, the last set of heroes of Earth who are putting up their last stand against alien species. When all seem lost, the ‘Guardians’ are able to wield the power of the light, that enables them to take their opponents out swiftly. This ‘light’ is a mysterious force and represents anything right and within order in the universe. However, an alien race called the Cabal infiltrated their city and stole this power, leaving everything in eternal darkness. Now it is your duty as one of the last survivors of our race to go out there and fight against these hordes of demons in order to win back the light and restore balance in the city.
There are various classes within the game, each specializing in a type of combat and you are able to choose any of these before you start a mission. Once you start the mission, you are able to join your friends online in a co-op setting in order to take out enemies and complete quests. These in turn reward you with experience points that you use to level up the characters. We highly recommend this one to people who are looking for something similar to ‘Halo’, mainly because of the setting and the development team.
