After several thousand votes were cast, the results are in. And as shocking as the numbers may seem, it actually turns out to be the general feeling amongst gamers when comparing the two games across Microsoft’s and Sony’s console platforms: Nearly three to one gamers prefer M.A.G over Halo 3: ODST.
Over the course of three weeks, in coalition with Electronic Theatre, we here at Blend Games conducted an empirical survey that questioned gamers about how they felt about certain attributes and features for both games and which one they preferred. Each week there was a clear cut answer and the user input was ostensibly in favor of M.A.G.
Regarding multiplayer versatility, more gamers felt that despite Bungie’s rich success from Halo 2 and Halo 3’s multiplayer, Zipper Interactive’s attempt with M.A.G was more noteworthy and something they looked forward to more than Halo 3: ODST.
Gameplay and weapon balance was also given to M.A.G in a nearly dead-even vote based on the polls and user input. This was in result from some feeling that ODST will simply be a revised gameplay experience of Halo 3 rather than something new with improved gameplay.
Finally, more gamers felt that they would prefer M.A.G over Halo 3: ODST because it would define more replay factors with the persistent online experience and strong focus on community and player advancement. The polls in this specific category showed that M.A.G won out in a two-to-one vote.
Of course, these are just preliminary feelings of how both games measure up to gamers from a pre-release standpoint. Based on the voting figures and user input, however, it will be very fascinating to see what the sales trend will be for both games based on this unofficial data.
