  Best online game ever

| | See all willascent's reviews (1)

People who say the gameplay online lacks skill or depth couldn't be more wrong. Halo 3 is the most skillfully competive game there will ever be!

  OK....But Not The Best

| | See all AndyTheGamer's reviews (17)

This game is good with its campaign and multiplayer experience but i found that this game became abit repetetive and the graphics in some aspects were a letdown. But you can get some real fun out of it.

  Disappointed.

Halo 3: The most over-rated game of all time. Based on reviews i've seen from others about this game, it sounds like one of those "Love it or Hate it" games. It's not too bad, but with all the hype, I expected more. The online at first is pretty fun, but gets boring. There's no customisation at all, and all you need to do well is to have:
1) Map Recognition
2) Expierience.
If you're looking for a fast paced online FPS, then this isn't the best choice.

The campaign is okay, but seeing as I haven't played Halo 2 and only played the beginning of the first Halo I'd of liked to know what happend before Halo 3. A cutscene could of done the job? Anyway the campaign isn't too hard, but it's boring. The only reason I was still playing it was for the achievements, and most of them are damn hard to earn.

Don't go by my review completely though as I do know other people who love Halo, but for me, it was a disappointment. Especially at the retail price I paid.

Overall: 3/5 (I would of put 2.5/5 given the option as 2 is abit unfair.)

  Bland gamplay and Poor graphics left me cold....

| | See all MetalLegend's reviews (4)

First off,I have not and will never play the Multiplayer....just doest interest me...and i still refuse to pay money for the privilege.

Big fan of FPS and long engaging single player campaigns...Halo 3 unfortunately let me down with a 5/6 hour single player experience. I liked Halo 1, good but repetitive... with Halo 2 a nice improvement.

Halo 3 graphically is poor! The characters look like PS2 era meat puppets with poor lip sinc and dodgy facial movements. This was meant to be the best the 360 could offer at the time and its is immediately eclipsed by Bioshock, COD4, Gears...even the ageing Halflife 2 stands above it. Bungie have basically taken a step back.

Dont get me wrong this is still an ok looking game,especially in terms of scale and weapons effects. But I was expecting something that would stand up to Killzone 2 not struggle against its predecessor Halo 2.

Gameplay is exacly the sameasthe past games. At least Killzone,Bioshcok,Battlefield,COD (the list goes on) inovate with each new game. New Guns and Vehickles dont equal a new game BUNGIE!!!

And finally,my biggest gripe with Halo 3....the game was just never exciting....the scarab fights felt formulatic, the plot just a Halo 1 and 2 redux, I just never felt the game even tries to take me by the balls and get my blood pumping....something all the above games I have mentioned succeeded in....including the first 2 Halo's

Sorry guys...it just not that good a game.

this game is still up there with the very best games on the xbox 360
and it is over 3 years old now if that's not a good game I don't know what is.
I played it and it was a lot of fun
I still play it now online and its great fun with a few friends its a must have for FPS fans

  Incredible!!!

If your are looking for a fun and exciting game then look no more, HALO 3 is one of the best games I have got for my x box 360 and i think it will continue to be that way for a long time. I cant find any fault with it and it is well worth a buy, from super fan to new buyer this is one of the best games around

  Best Game On Xbox Ever!! Well Worth 11.99!

This was the first game I ever bought for my 360 and my god I am impressed at how long I've played it for. I must have played this for atleast 6 months now and I'm still not bored. If you want a good solid game at a good price buy this. ABSOLUTE CLASSIC!

  Great but over rated

| | See all NC0786's reviews (22)

i heard many good reviews about this game, but i didn't really impress me as some other games have done, i still is worth the money and is a great game but i have seen better i.e gears of war, killzone 2, uncharted 2 and call of duty 4, 5 and 6

but for its age it is still good i think that halo reach will be a mega hit because of how fps have progressed since Halo 3.

conclusion is that it is worth the money and is a good buy and you wont be disappointed but neither amazed.
