Halo 3 seems like a good game, but... Nine copies of the damn thing in one home!?

Meh, I'm not too bothered at the moment. Haven't got a 360. However it looks ace and I got a few chances to play the beta round a friends, so I'm definately going to get this (Along with Mass Effect and Bioshock) when I get a 360 for Christmas. ^^

Played it. Felt and played the same.

I like the new features they added in it, but to me it was the same damn game.

Plus it was way too damn short.

But dont get me wrong, it was beautiful and was pretty awesome. I just diddnt feel satisfied when I played it.

So I was pumped but....

The graphics are nothing to wave a stick at. Ps3 has games with graphics that put this to shame. A lot of it doesn't look too different from Halo 2 graphically.

And um....the combat hasn't changed to much. They added a few new guns and some neat items. But nothing revolutionary..... Definitely doesn't deserve a 10.

Shuyin: I have yet to see an example of the PS3 putting anything to shame, espescially not the Xbox 360.

You seem to have "Power Held" and "Power that gets put to use" confused.

On that note, everything else about your post was spot on, I think. Halo 3 isn't nearly as good as I was hoping for it to be. I blame G4's Countdown to Halo 3 for making me hope, again.

I think its a personal opinion, but I know several games that can put the Xbox360's look to shame.

Oblivion for example, when compared with both consoles, PS3's look alot better. I dont know about the Game of the Year Edition however, I heard it was compressed and looks better.

But the number one scare to Halo is this



Plus the #1 thing that scares Microsoft the most is the online gameplay with this game on the 360 cant match the free Dedicated Servers for the PS3.

Off topic, I know, but like I said, its all opinion.

Curious, but have you actually see Ps3 in full HD? I'm not a sony fan boy, and I'm actually fiending for some H3.......but the graphics are not that spectacular. Face it.

The ps3 is in direct competition with xbox360. Regardless of when they were released, they're still being compared. Xbox 360 does have some better looking games, or at least on par with ps3 games. Hell, Gears of War looks better than this and that's on the same system.

On another note:

You can get Hayabusa armor when you collect the skulls. That is my main priority right now.

Meh. Graphics lately have been the only point brought up in defense of the PS3 as far as I've seen, and I'm really rather tired of it coming up...

maybe that's just bitterness at only having a 13" TV, though.

Back on topic though, I'll probably get Halo 3 when I get a 360. That will not be for a few months though...

I played Halo 3 on saturday for a couple hours. I actually liked it a lot. The Forge mode was awesome, and I loved the gravity hammers. Also, the mongoose is really awesome. Best vehicle I have ever played.

Anyway, I think that it's not revolutionary, but it really doesn't need to be. Halo 2 was really awesome, and changing things too much would ruin the game. I like the feel of Halo 2, and I wouldn't like it leaving for Halo 3.

As for graphics, you have to realize that Halo 3 loads an entire huge level all at once. That means probably over a mile in one load. That means every detail, every high quality explosion, soldier, texture, AI program, model, and cutscene all loaded at one time.

If you ask me, that's a lot better than what Oblivion pulled off with its loadscreen every five minutes.

Finally someone points this out. At least nobody was comparing this game to Gears, that's gotta be the lamest arguement out there (I've been at GameFAQ's too much lately).

Anyways, I think its a great game. It was epic, the plot came together very well, Campaign is actually fun this time unlike Halo 2's, co-op will be amazing once my friends start playing more, and online is great.

But I hate Shotty Snipers. There's definitely a lack of maps too, but in time I'm sure custom games with Forge will be great.

Graphics don't matter to me. Gameplay does. I played a little of Halo 3, and I was disappointed. It felt like Halo 2. In fact, it pretty much was, except with prettier graphics.
Meh; it's alright, I guess; I'm not gonna spend the money on it, though.

Read the thread.

Now then... Why exactly did they have to load everything all at once? Honestly, did anybody give Halo a negative point for having that 2 and a half second "loading" screen when you move onto the next area?

Also, if you ask me, the lack of Maps means that you're going to have to buy maps on Xbox Live, with your points.

Sorry Have I said to much...So Ashton I've noticed you are back...I find it amusing that they do not just unban your other account and let you go back to your normal Alias...

Is Ashton my new nickname?

I find that amusing too. I had to make a rehash because it's too quiet without me, but they wont unban my other name.
~~~
EDIT: Zabulon, I'm surprized at you... you derailed a thread about Halo? What's up with that? And Mr. Staff member, what are you doing posting a totally off topic post, in this thread like that? Only the staff is allowed to disobey the rules? I hate that policy.

Moving back on topic, now... my next door neighbor owns this game, and he destroyed me at it... although I was never very good at First Person Shooters.

I haven't had a chance to play Halo 3 yet, however a few of my friends have, and they say it's a good game, however it feels too much like Halo 2.

Also, one friend hates the little modification they made on the pistol from Halo 1... NO ZOOM!? WTF!?

I had a good time with H3 getting used to not using the X button to reload took quite a while .

Did anyone find the Grunt birthday party skull? it makes the game 1 million times better.

So....did anyone else think the ending was lame? (Yes I watched the end of the credits too) The last level was fun. Especially with co-op. But the ending was disappointing.....

Is there a secret ending for beating it on legendary?
