Halo 3 - Xbox 360 (Released 2007)

FPS Shooter

The halo trilogy started off with Halo: Combat Evolved. In the first halo we were attacked by the covenant while on the ship called the autumn. We got caught in a war with the covenant on halo. At the end of halo, we destroyed that halo. In halo 2 the covenant gained a foothold on earth and with the help of master cheif we stopped them. In halo 3 the covenant are back on earth seeking something in Africa. We end up stopping them and the flood and save our galaxy from destruction.

Halo 3's graphics are not what was expected. They were boasting how the graphics would be the best of graphics on any game of all time, but that is not the case. Aside from more detail which you would expect from Halo 3 being on the Xbox 360, there is not much of a difference from the graphics from Halo 2.

Halo 3's gameplay is excellent. The campaign is way better than anyone expected it to be because everyone though the main emphasis would be on Halo 3's Xbox live. One of the greatest features is the return of the assault rifle from the first of the halo games. One of the few things I missed from the campaign in Halo 2 is battling elites, we don't battle them in halo 3 because were allied with them. Halo 3's online is superb. It is extremely organized and has many new featues. Some of the best are the veto for games that are not liked, experence penalities for those who quit. One of the features I dislike is how easy it is to get a kill be the "Shoot and Wack".

My personal opinion is this is an overall great game. The online mulitplayer is great and the campaign is surprisingly very fun. Besides from the dissapoitment is graphics this game is very good.

Score : 9/10

Halo 3 is fun, and as for the graphics, I'm sort of glad they didn't push the 360 to its limits, because even though it isn't the best looking game, the scale of some of the battles are freeking huge!

Halo 3's only fun, in my opinion, if you're playing with friends, even the campaign, it's pretty boring unless you play it on co-op, you can mess about, and theres a lot of amazing funny stuff that goes on with halo (e.g. launching a warthog up a the man cannon on Valhalla and splattering a banshee user and have the remains of the banshee hit another player and it comes up as a betrayal for them meanwhile you get lasered and that guy gets a triple kill.)

Not to compare Halo with CoD4 but I would be able to play CoD4 all by my self, or just repeat the single player which is fun. But Halo still is really fun.

nice reviewing but this game was a HUGE dissapointment to me. The online just isn't the same as Halo 2 which was SO much fun and I loved every minute of it. There was so little levels on single player as well. 1/10 to me. Sold it the same week I got it.

How this game got rating like this from loads of sites and magazines is beyond me. Have they even tried the single player campaign? It's honestly one of the most boring and unsatisfying games I've ever played (single player). I remember I first got the game on the release, and I was psyched about it. I started playing it, and relaised soon that this would be really lame and boring. I actually struggled to get myself to play through the single player part.

I will hand it to the multiplayer though, that is a lot of fun and very well organized. But a game should not be able to recieve ratings like this based on the mulitplayer and onlie playing aspect. It's good, but the single player is so totally horrible that it should never be able to get anything higher than 7/10.

single player does get boring quite quickly, but 4 player co-op in legendary is a lot of fun. though it's quite hard to set up a 4 player co-op game in halo 3 as there's no matchmaking for online co-op campaign for some reason, but i found my way around that by spamming random people with lots of invites to join my co-op games.

I love halo 3 and the whole franchise. I totally understand the frustrations of those who cannot stand the hype over Halo 3 but the only thing you can really do is try to ignore it right? Also to the Halo fanboys, including me while it's hard to believe that there are people out there who don't like this franchise or hate it with a burning passion of one thousand suns, they have a right to their opinion just as much as we do. One day when the tables are turned and they're in love with a completely hyped game that I could care less about that they respect that in turn.

Looking at the single player alone, it's pretty rubbish. I don't think Halo 3 is the worst game ever made . I don't hate it - and I find the multiplayer very entertaining and fun - but not that
unique and amazing. A game without a decent single player cannot score this high, and I was naturally very disspointed because I had heard the story in Halo was so awesome. Now, that might be, but the way it was told through the poor single player made it really annoying and uninteresting.

Yeah I'm talking about Halo 3.

What I didn't like was that Halo 3 has some of the most unbalanced AI I've seen. The Covenant troops use cover and tactical thinking but the human partner AI is woefully idiotic. I can't count the number of times I watched a tiny human rush up to a brute, ineffectually peppering it with small arms fire before being crushed by a single punch. At first it's an effective way of establishing what terrifying entities the foes are, but after a little while I just started wishing they'd learn to back up so they could be of some use to me.
And even though the Flood's appearance has been improved, their presence in the game is just as awkward and unpleasant as ever. Even with a few new forms and the fantastic new look, they haven't gotten any smarter, and don't understand any tactic more complex than running straight at the player, attacking wildly. This can be scary in small doses, but it just winds up being tedious after a little while. I've never met anyone who actually liked the Flood portions of Halos 1 and 2, so the decision to include two lengthy Flood levels back to back in Halo 3 is something of a puzzler. Whatever momentum the game had going stops dead for over an hour of having slimy things running in a straight line, with the player stuck in hallways too narrow to just walk around them.
It's not just the Flood that get repetitive, though. The level design suffers from similar problems. While the developers do their best to pepper old areas with new enemies, it's impossible to escape the fact that six separate levels in a nine level game feature significant amounts of backtracking. If going back over the same areas wasn't bad enough, the lack of an in-game map was just inexcusable. I can't count the number of times I got lost, and had to wait for the game to take pity on me and put a directional arrow on my HUD.

the ai is terrible for halo, the human ai, everyone knows about but the covenant just stands there and shoots occationally taking a sideways step (if they are armed with melee weapons then they just run towards you not taking into consideration anything else but you being there) , sometimes the little guys will pointlessly run away (not to cover, just pointlessly run)

this was acceptable for halo 1+2, but not for 3

the legendary ai is no different, they just shoot as soon as they see you and always hit

It was never acceptable. Any FPS like that released after November 19, 1998 (release date of Half-Life, the FPS messiah) is terrible. If Halo had been released before Half-Life, it would have been acceptable.
