A review-lite if you like, seeing as it's not the actual game. The beta is excellent. I'm not a regular Halo player, but got swept up in the hype for the third instalment. I played the beta solidly on the release day, and I thought it was excellent fun. Graphics are already top notch, despite those who've been spoiled by Gears claiming to the contrary, and the sound is awesome. I ran it through my digital surround, and it was incredible. The graphics look better, the larger your TV; I've seen it played on a 26-inch LCD, as well as my 42-Inch Plasma, and it only gets better the larger you go! If they improve them further in the 4 months before release it should be up to everyone's expectations.

The only gripe is its inaccessibility. It is hardcore on Xbox Live, and it will only get worse; but that's not a fault of the game obviously. With the ability to party up with your friends, this should become a lot better. The intense ranked games will still be there for those who like things mentally fast and frantic, but the player matches should sort this out for the more casual players.

The bottom line, that everyone seems to keep missing, is that this game is fun. I got seriously spanked online in every other match I played, but I still enjoyed it because it is such a laugh. Charging at the cocky yanks before cracking them over the head with your rifle is immense fun! Along with ripping off a gun emplacement and using it to destroy the bloke who just cruised past on the quad bike after stealing your team flag! And even when they re-spawn and punish you severely for your actions, it is still enjoyable! There is some seriously satisfying killing in this game, even if, like me, you aren't as hardcore as the Americans who bleed Halo, you'll still have a ball!

Just one other point I didn't like...Push to talk! What's that about? If I want to chat to my team-mates, I don't want to have to take my finger off the pulse just so they can hear me. It is very well implemented, and the way they have designed it so that people are quieter when they are further away (Hard to explain without playing the game itself) is genius, but I just prefer always on comms as standard. Maybe they will put that option in before the release, who knows?

Overall, excellent fun all round. Also bear in mind this will have 4 player co-op in single player campaign, and that can only be a good thing!!

Will people PLEASE actually research before they comment on the graphics? if you had HALF a brain cell you'd read (and should know) that this is a beta (not even a demo) and the graphics are a pre-alpha build. its just a test engine, the purpose of the beta is for people to TEST the gameplay. non of us are yet to see any of the finished graphics. next time you load up the beta, give the message that comes up a read. go on.

Anyway, a very fun game to play that has heavily improved on the already phenomenal halo 2 in terms of multiplayer. Guess we'll just have to see for the single player. all the vi-docs look promising though.

  halo 3 beta

| | See all badredeye05's reviews (1)

To be honest the halo 3 beta is not at all what i expected. The graphics are no better the halo 2, The grenades do not have the power they need to take an enemy out. My advise is to rent it first.

  Not So Good, Bungie...

| | See all VioletFluid's reviews (3)

I played the Halo 3 Beta the other day and i have to say i'm truly disappointed. For starters the graphics; Halo 2...maybe just with a little more clearness. It makes no full use of the 360's power [unlike Gears and Rainbow 6:Vegas] and looks dated. It was fun to play, but essentially it was Halo 2 with some new weapons. My advice: Rent it before you buy it!

Downloaded and been playing the beta, Gfx are ok, its no gears of war by any means! But gameplay is fun fun fun, Team up with a load of mates with the key words being team work. Excellent weapons, good gadgets, lots of action and easy to pick up.

When the Gfx are sorted I reckon this could be a classic, they have 6 months, still plenty of time before release.

These views are coming from a first time halo player (not played 1 or 2)

  The Best Game Ever? Defo!

| | See all Jaundicelucas's reviews (1)

I too have just played the beta and anyone who played Halo 2 online for months and months will love this new version. If they can do this much with the beta imagine what the game will be like!!! It looks gorgeous it plays as smooth as halo 2 with a lot less glitching. The graphics are amazing and anyone who says they aren't needs to upgrade there television there is so much detail in this game you need a good tv to see it. There a lots of new toys and weapons to play with although it will need a couple of weeks on LIVE for people to work out what to do with them. I personally can not wait for this game!!!

The beta for this game has amazin graphics already and the online will keep you playing for years. Halo 2 is still one of the best online games iv played. A must have if you have a 360.
