Well, here it is, the final to a series that has defined gaming over the period of two consoles. A feat in itself.
I have been an avid follower of the series, enjoying every moment I pick up the controller to the moment the credits begin to roll. Heck I've even base my name here (As well as other games and sites) loosely on the Covenant (Not exactly but for other reasons, it's a story in itself).
Now, Halo 3 was to be the ultimate of the 3rd generation, at least at its time period, unfortunately I don't think it went that far. I don't know what the actual problem was, maybe the developers rushed the overall product, purhaps the technology may not of been on par to cap this gaming giants final burst onto our shelves. A final reason what has arose was the people who have believed in this game and the series; the fans, and how they may of over-hyped this game beyond what was possible and eventually convinced the casual gamer and even themselves that this would be something that was not possible.
But you know what, I really don't care. Yes, the games visual appearence may not be life like, but it's not exactly Two Worlds either (In fact for it's size it's very good), the little kids who plague the online rooms do annoy you and maybe those times when ou've hit someone it should of been your kill.
Yet still, I don't care. I will be out there, with my battle rifle to hand, enjoying a great, customizable online experience with my friends. We have and will continue to make maps that will make you think, some that will just make you laugh in one way or another, then play them with our custom modes. Driving vehicles won't be an issue either.
The campaign I have to wonder could of been more fleshed out possibly or alltered at some parts, but once more I don't know what is wrong with it, so who am I to critisize. Although with the option for 4 people online I was pretty happy.
This game has even spawned a new type of entertainment known as Machinima, one of the most famous examples named "Red VS Blue" and another "Duex Ex Machina". The use of Theatre Mode in Halo 3 has now not only making file sharing of some of your favourite moments easier, but inspired hundreds of users to entertain friends and internet lurkers.
In the end, I know that this game isn't perfect, it may not be what was hyped, but you'll be having so much fun you won't notice. To miss this is not just to miss the hit of the season, it's to miss a part of history, so join it while you still can.
