Its here.. Halo 3 has finally graced us with it's presence.
First off i will start with telling you that the graphics are not revolutionary like Gears of War or Bioshock but they are still good. It's the multiplayer that is the masterpiece of this game.
So ill begin with the Campaign. As you know the story starts off where Halo 2 finished, Master Chief crashes down on Earth and you pretty much start off from there. I'm not going to tell you what happens for those people who dont have the game yet. The Campaign is alright to start with but it builds up towards the end with a great last chapter. It's just about worth to go through it again on the higher difficulties for the achievement points. There are four difficulty settings: Easy, Medium, Heroic and Legendary. The one which you want to be starting off with even if you are a Halo novice is Medium because the enemy AI is far too easy to overcome on Easy. Heroic is a challenge if your on your own and Legendary is pretty much impossible without doing it on co-op.
To the best part of Halo 3 then, the Multiplayer. Bungie have made improvements to the multiplayer. You can now record video clips or take screen shots of matches or missions from the campaign and upload them on to your file share so everyone on the Halo 3 network can see them. They have created a game mode called Forge where you can edit the weapon and vehicle placements in a map and play on that map on line with other people. You can play with up to 16 people on Xbox Live.
Overall Halo 3 is a great thrill ride that shouldn't be missed.
