Halo 3 Is The Best Way To Finish The Fight! 0

The GoodSharp, responsive controls and excellent gameplay. Superb sound effects accompanied with terrific voice acting. The story is great and very good. The game has one of the best textures in this generation. Awesome multiplayer modes and campaign. The new Forge mode and Theater are well made. The soundtrack is just great. The BadUNSC allies don't know how to run for their lives (including yours). The rewind button in Theater mode doesn't work as you expect. The single-player experience coul...

Halo 3 - Some new, a lot more of the same? 0

Originally when Halo came out I thought it was an amazingly fun & original shooter.  I played through it once and finished it with a friend, and that was it.  Bought Halo 2, played it for a few hours and thought "Holy shit, this is Halo with dual wielding guns", dropped it and never picked it up again.    Earlier this year I decided to give Halo 3 a shot, being the first time it appeared on the Xbox 360, I expected this game to advance by leaps and bounds, which it has to a certain degree.  ...

One of the best games this gen 0

If I had to rank the 3 Halo's, here'd be my ordering: 1. Halo 3 2. Halo: Combat Evolved 3. Halo 2 Halo: CE was Bungie's original masterpiece that pushed the console FPS genre to new heights by refining game mechanics and creating an immersive sci-fi world. Halo 2 was a solid follow-up, but given the limitations of the original Xbox and certain level design choices, failed to surpass its predecessor. Why do I think Halo 3 is better than either of its predecessors? It's hard to put my finger on...

A great ending to a great trilogy 0

Lets get it out of the way. Halo 2 was a big disappointment. The multiplayer might have been good. But the story was terrible. But i can pretty much say this "halo 3 is the best halo and it will not disappoint a halo fan at all" The story for halo leaves off were the second one left off. Master Chief is back on earth and must "finish the fight". His fight will start off in Africa and end up some where way farther. For the sake of no spoilers i will not talk about the story. The game play in ha...

A great ending to a beloved series. 0

Halo: Combat evolved brought console shooters a revolutionary control scheme and shooting mechanics, and a surprisingly good story. Halo 2 brought us a new revolution, online play, along with fantastic graphics and a solid continuation of the storyline despite a cliffhanger. Now, we pick up where that cliffhanger left off, and I'm glad to say its everything Halo fans were hoping it would be.Halo 3 isn't as graphically groundbreaking as Halo2, but its still rather impressive. All the character mo...

Halo 3 Review 0

The Halo series of games on Microsoft's, Xbox are truly a thing of wonder, with number one introducing a fantastic story and a great, however only 4 player split screen, multiplayer.Halo 2 upped the ante, bigger, badder weapons, more diverse enemies, and an absolute gem of a multiplayer mode, both online and offline.It is with no surprise then, that Halo 3 was expected to be a thing of wonder, bringing an end to the story of the Master Chief and The Covenant, and supposedly defining what Xbox Li...

Halo 3 Review 0

Halo 3, the concluding to the epic Halo franchise, is a fitting finish. It perfects everything from the initial two games to the series. Its improvements and additions make it a game that will still be looked back on years from now.The Graphics- Halo 3 is definitely one of the better looking games to be played on the Xbox 360. These games have generally always been known for their visuals. The multiple environments look great (particularly the first level which has a forest theme), the character...

Halo 3 0

Halo 3 builds upon the concepts of Halo 2 in ways that you'd expect, but there are also new modes and options that send.Regardless of how you felt about its cliffhanger ending, there's no denying that Halo 2 was a gigantic success that raised the bar for what we, as a game-playing society, expect out of a good console-based first-person shooter. In the years that followed, plenty of games attempted to duplicate the Halo formula, with varying degrees of success. But there's still nothing quite li...

Great game. 0

Halo 3 is the third and final game in the halo trilogy. The multiplayer has finally been balanced enough where everyone can compete in a match and not be completely raped or blown away. the maps may not be as good as Halo 2, but the the gametypes ,playlists and overall matchmaking and ranking is it its overall peak for online gaming. the Single player is the same, fighting covenant in repeat enviroments.

The King has returned. 0

Halo 3 is the 3rd game in the Halo series. Of course. The franchise that made console FPS cool. It is alot more of  what you have come to expect. The Chief and Cortana save the world.Gameplay :  Halo 3 doesn't stray from the formula . But it polishes it to a super shine. Aiming and moving are smooth as ever. The auto aim has been toned down. But not removed. It still has all the great vehicles from before. Warthog, Ghost, Banshee etc. While adding useful new ones, Mongoose , Prowler, Hornet. Eve...

The Return of the Chief. 0

 All trilogys are epics, aren't they? Look at some of the best trilogys in the history of the media. Lord of the Rings, The Godfather, Star Wars (The REAL ones), and even other games, like Metroid Prime, have nitched into something of a saga that has been created for the media.  Maybe good things just come in 3's. Who knows? It seems like this trend is never going to break. And to an extent, it doesn't break with Halo. The third chapter in the somewhat overrated series is stronger than Halo ...

Halo 3 is better than the second one, and thats fine by me. 0

The third installment to the Halo trilogy is finally here and it is superb. Halo 1 didn't really evolve combat but it probably is one of the fine examples of first-person shooters out there. Halo 3 wouldn't be a Halo game without the great gameplay, amazing graphics, and the best original music for a game. With that said, it isn't a masterpiece. Then again, it is without a doubt, ONE of the best games this year. The story picks up not from Halo 2, but the book "Uprising". Although there is no di...

How Halo 3 Should Be Played! 0

Halo 3 is a game that feels very familar which is good as the learning curve is very easy to get to grips of.  there are new weapons & foes in this game but it all starts to feel familar after a few levels and difficulty starts to lag and thats me saying this i started on heroic. so my advice is to if you like a challenge and want to feel a great satisfaction once completed you should start the game on legendary it also helps once you eventually get online  you wont feel  mediocre like many ...

Hi-Def Halo 0

After the disappointingly underwhelming “cliff-hanger” end to Halo 2, I was keen to pick things up where I’d left off and see how it all concludes.Halo 3 is pretty much Halo in high-def. It has the usual addition of weapons and vehicles you would expect from a sequel, and being on the 360 it has the prerequisite upgrade of visuals as well, which look beautiful. It may sound underwhelming to describe Halo 3 as pretty much Halo in high-def but given the pedigree of Halo, it’s high praise indeed.No...

The last episode of the trilogy and even the best one! 0

Throughout video game history, there have been franchises that have attained such popularity that they quickly become a household name. Take Halo for example. When the first game launched, it came out of nowhere and surprised many a gamer with it's interesting story and satisfying gameplay. The sequel, Halo 2, moved more XBoxes than any other game in Microsoft's history and very quickly became one of the top selling games of all time. Now comes Halo 3, the seemingly final chapter in the trilogy...

A great end to the Halo Series! 0

Halo 3, the biggest game to hit in 2007, Now every 360 owned got there hands on this, but the big question was, was it worth it? Well, in my eyes, it was worth it, A story that satisfied, yet left it wide open to a sequel, and the multplayer that will last you for months. The story continues right after Halo 2, so it fits very well, in fact, the story is great, cause it sucks you in, but to understand it, you need to go back and play the originals, The story in the end though might leave you wa...

Halo 3 Review: Finish the Fight 0

Halo 3 is the final game in the epic trilogy that made the Xbox a serious contender.  Halo 3 continues the story of the series and of Master Chief but it makes some mistakes that the previous 2 games did not. Halo 2 ended with Master Chief having boarded the ship of the Prophet of Truth, and though it ended with a cliff hanger it did leave the way open for a great opening for Halo 3. Amazingly, Bungie squander this opportunity and for some inexplicable reason the game begins after the Chief has ...

Halo 3 Review 0

The Halo series has always been a mixed bag, in my opinion.  Been a Halo fan from day one, OG halo on launch xbox.  Love the story, loved the first game, had lots of uber-nerd "halo parties" with my buds playing some LAN multiplayer.  Was super excited for the second game, and then super let down in a lot of ways.  Still though, played a lot of multiplayer.  My feelings about Halo 3 are similar to Halo 2.  The multiplayer is so frustrating because in so many ways it's awesome.  In other ways, it...

Sometimes good, sometimes a disappointment 0

I have mixed views about Halo 3 to be honest. At times its been quite good, but at other times, I've disliked it a lot.First of all, Campaign mode continues right from the cliffhanger Halo 2 left us in. Master Chief lands near New Mombassa, and has to continue fighting the covenant. To avoid spoilers, I won't discuss the rest of the storyline but I will say this. Its quite disappointing compared to Halo 1 and 2.Halo 1 and 2 had a very good introduction level. The first Halo had a pretty memorabl...

Halo 3: Excellence abound. 0

SingleplayerHalo 3's campaign is very short. Unacceptably short on easy, but acceptable on heroic+. But that's not to say it is bad. The campaign is ridiculously streamlined from start to finish, with an unprecedented level of polish rarely seen. Graphically it is superb, but not amazing. By no means amazing. Havok physics are incredible, and the bloom/HDR effects look great, but the textures and models don't compete with games like Gears and COD4.4 player co-op is amazing, and tons of fun. Forg...

You would think 3 is enough, well it's not!!! 0

Halo comes back again for it's first appearance on the Xbox 360, and it's better than ever! Halo 3 has insane graphics, fantastic gameplay, and a huge variety of vehicles, weapons, and character customization. You would think 3 games is enough, but I could go for another 3 after this game! Halo 3 displays everything you could hope for from the 360. There are some pointless Live games, but that seems like the only flaw in this game. Overall, this game is one of the best games on the 360....

halo 0

 The campaign, which is very good, is Halo 3's weakest point. It doesn't capture the cavalier spirit of the original Halo, but you'll still have fun playing through it. There's no first-person shooter on 360 that can equal Halo 3's blend of cinematic action, adrenaline-pumping shootouts, and male- (and female)-bonding gameplay. Look beyond the gameplay and you have a rich feature set unlike anything ever delivered in a videogame. The Forge and the replay functionality raise the bar for co...

Halo 3 is a must-buy for any 360 owner. 0

Halo 3 in it's very glory is a highly addicting and fun game. The campaign consists of 10 (or so) levels, each is unique and design brilliantly. You can play alone, or with three other people, either locally or online. Ofcourse, it's more fun to play with other people. In campaign, you get to play as Master Chief, and you basicly shoot aliens. But it's really, really, really fun. The only thing I can really complain about is the horrible weapons design, you don't even know what the weapon does b...

Not Quite the Holy Savior of FPS's 0

Let us be candid here. The Halo series is Microsoft’s lifeblood for its Xbox brand. Without it, the current console war might only be Sony vs. Nintendo. Halo has been called everything, from being the revolution in the console FPS genre, to just being a vulgar term for excrement, if the men from Penny Arcade are to be believed. Regardless of what anyone says about it, Halo always sells well. Hell, Halo 3 has already broken sales records in the game industry (Even breaking some records in the cin...

Couldn't think of a better way to end the best video game trilogy 0

 Since the release for Halo:CE back in 2001, the Halo franchise has exploded, single handedly leading Microsoft into the big market gaming business. Now, with Halo 3, the series closing chapter and final part of a Epic trilogy, people all over are frothing at the mouth to get a hold on a copy of the game. Gameplay wise, Halo 3 still delivers the fast paced FPS shoot-em up that we have all come to know and love. But, Bungie has decided to throw the addition of a few new things into the old formul...

My H3 review ported over from GS 0

(Old review that I wrote on GS)Halo’s popularity isn’t doing it any favors. The flagship title for the 360 before the console even hit stores, Halo 3 might be the most highly anticipated game ever made. It sold more copies from pre-orders alone than most games make in total sales. Following two nearly perfect entries, and under the burden of being the final chapter to the biggest storyline in gaming, it can’t help but disappoint. Against all odds, Halo 3 doesn’t disappoint. The story picks up ...

An extremely solid game with excellent multiplayer. 0

I don't have all that much to say about it. Halo is a great series and I'm loving Halo 3. Is it overrated? Probably. It's not doing too much different then Halo 2 did. But why fix what ain't broke? Theres a noticable graphics improovement in there, as you'd expect. The game looks sharp in pretty much all areas of the game. This won't change the fact that walking through eerily familiar hallways and areas throughout the campaign is a tad bland, no matter how pretty these clone halls look. To be...

A good experience that is sure to entertain, but it's not without its blights. 0

From a 2014 point of view, how does Halo 3 fare in the mind of this humble gamer? From a so-so Campaign, a deeply entertaining Multiplayer mode, a decent Forge mode, and the ability to save videos of gameplay in Films, Halo 3 is still an enjoyable experience, even by today's standards.Halo 3 picks up near where the previous game ended, and it doesn't take long to get into the game.

The question as to wether you should or shouldn't buy Halo 3, the final installment of this trilogy, is simple. Yes. Not only does the game have a strong consistent yet varying storyline that can be summed up as epic. But it also has a very noteworthy online component.
