1 OH MY GOD WHAT A COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY!!!!!!!!!active | 26/09/2007 | See all active's reviews (1)Seriously, this is a complete waste of money. Im gutted ive spent £70, when all you need is the standard edition.The Legendary Edition, which retails for £70 comes in a sizeable cube. It's covered in a black sleeve, which unfolds into a fairly awesome Master Chief poster. Inside the box is the somewhat infamous Master Chief helmet. This replica helmet, slightly smaller than a human head, fits on a rectangular base which is numbered. The limited nature of the helmet seems, well, not so limited as my numbered edition is six figures. When you pass 150,000, that's not so "limited." The helmet is pretty swank and the base also holds the two game boxes that come with the set.The first box has the game, and comes with a rather unspectacular black cover. The second box is marked "Halo 3 Essentials," also with an unattractive smoky black cover. This contains two discs of extras.The second disc is exclusive to the Legendary Edition and, frankly, it's pretty disappointing. The DVD displays only in 4:3 and features some terrible video compression. As stated above, this DVD is shown only in 4:3 and looks terrible on a hi-def or standard-def TV. With Bungie's dedication towards technical excellence, it's a bit of a surprise to see a DVD included in a £70 set that is so subpar. The Legenary box promises "remastered, hi-res versions of Halo and Halo 2 cinematics." This is complete bunk. The cinematics are not in hi-res and, in fact, are so poorly compressed, they look worse than the original games. Though the 136 minute-long series of cut-scenes offers a complete replay of the stories of Halo 1 and 2, it could not have been handled any more poorly. This is not what you should get after spending so much on a special edition set.
