After 365 days, does this Xbox shooter still have play?
COD4 took halo 3 to school and back,aaaaaaaaaand it was a multi-platform game.
Resistance 2 will do the same to halo 3,no expansion pack can save it from its own mediocrity.
res2 a 12hr game on a 50GB DISC. Gears of War 2 a 15hr game on DVD9.
I don't think you should compare the length of plays because CoD4 is the shortest but is also the greatest console fps I have played
after 5 minutes in,I knew that it's the most overhyped game ever halo 1 was awesome,9.6 in my book after all the hype,I thought it well make halo 1 a joke,but it sucked in comparison,online multiplayer is the only saving grace in halo3 halo 1 co-op never gets old,the awesome levels and battles in halo 1,I'll never forget them,every single level in halo1 is amazing halo 3 has trash single player campaign,bad level design,stupid team AI,poorly done set pieces,the weapons themselves seem cold,dead and you feel like spraying water not firing real bullits I hope halo 4 be as good as halo 1
How I loved Halo1 co-op back on the XBOX. Assault on the Control Room? HELL YES! Halo actually felt like you were exploring and I don't think we'll ever have a FPS with such unexpected twists throughout the story, genius, pure genius. The second game, not so. Notice the quality of the actual campaigns in the games decreased as the multiplayer section was worked on more. I have high hopes for this reported single player expansion pack because of the different perspective and less focus of packing in the multiplayer section in the game too.
"the weapons themselves seem cold,dead" wtf? lol. Gotta love the haters
I decided this is all I'll write after that quote from ape.
Assault on the control room was the $hit. "I would have been your daddy" hahaha. I played it over and over again. Halo 3 felt a bit rushed. Like I was playing it just to end it. We wont even talk about halo 2. Don't get me wrong, there's no game I've spent more time playing online than Halo2, but Halo 1 was the best overall experience. I remember being in the dorms and we had 8 player battles with 2 xboxs....nerdy yes, but fun and free. I loved halo 3, but put it down after jumping into COD4 and haven't looked back since. Hopefully this new update gives me a reason to pick it back up again....maybe they added a run button?
Halo's proof is in the numbers. Games sold. Online play numbers. Critical reviews. Obviously LOTS of people are still enjoying it. Sorry if that somehow irks you.
but numbers can't be proof of quality McDonald's burger can't be the best burger in the world, can it?
is the best & most complete game ever.
was and still is fantastic. The weapons are the most balanced out of all the games in the series. The plasma weapons have better accuracy. The plasma pistol energy drains if you keep it charged and the sword has energy. Those were two big problems with part 2. Not to mention the equipment and forge feature both add diversity and a lot more fun to the multiplayer aspects. Halo 3 will still be played online years from now by millions of players. Most online CONSOLE games don't carry that much weight. Not to mention that Bungie has implemented a fantastic party system that is a joy to play. And they are always adding new maps features, balancing, and playlists via downloadable content. If the amount of people playing Halo 3 on XBox live is any form of accurate measurement...I would say that one year later Halo 3 is doing better than ever.
@Bloodmask I think you made a new friend^^lol
Out of the 47 360 games I have halo 3 still gets played the most. I do miss the pistol from Halo 1. But, that made the game very unbalanced (nothing like owning noobs on Xbox connect with the pistol). Halo 3 has the best vehicle physics out of any game I have ever played. All of Halo 3 vehicles (land and air) steer flawlessly in every direction. Unlike Bad Company or Frontlines. I really liked those two but the bad steering killed it for me. The controls are very tight and are still one of my favorites. My question to you Halo 3 haters is, if the game is so overrated and lame why did MLG pick it up for their tournaments? I guess Walshy has a low IQ? Maybe you should let him know that. Maybe the game is not your style. It is a good game. I have no regrets. One thing, if every game had built in match making ( finding/hosting a room is so 90's)more of my other games would get played more. Guys when you swear and offensively express yourself it makes you look like your vocabulary is very very limited. Have an opinion but be respectful.
with TRNY. With my low IQ I am not able to make a decision for myself and only purchase hype machine produced games. I cannot decide for myself to continue playing Halo 3 because I think it is fun to play with my friends online. I cannot decide for myself if I think the game is great or just average. I understand that people have their own opinions, but when your opinion is to lump all people together that have played Halo 3 and say they have a low IQ or cannot have their own opinion is absurd. Also most of the games made today are below average, making average, good.
Yeh your forgetting resistance 2 want sell as much as Halo 3 also Gears of War 2 will take care of Resistance 2
Why are we arguing about whether two games that have not come out yet will out sell Halo 3? I love my PS3, but I have played Halo 3 at a friends house and it is awesome. I don't care which console you like. MGS4 is at least a 9.5 game (I think it is the best), SSBB is at least 9.3 and Halo 3 was at least 9.5 when it came out.
I still play Halo 3 but its just not as fun as Halo 1 or Halo 2.I played Halo 1 on PC religiously and its one of the best shooters of all time.Halo 3 was good for a few months and I got up to Brigadier rank,then I found new games like Cod4,Rainbow Six Vegas 2,Bad Company,and Metal Gear Online.I may not return to Halo 3 however after Gears 2 and Resistance 2 comes out.Since Epic fixed all the problems in Gears 2,I dont think I'll return to Halo 3 this year. Maybe I will play again if that Halo 3 expansion is good though.
The sheer fun of playing Halo with friends is unbeatable, one can like btter one iteration or the other, but the three games share common ground that make them extremely fun. For me other shooters dont cut it, I play CoD4 or even Resistance for "killing time " ( bad joke ), Halo for fun with friends and competing over Live. Gears was so full of glitches I cannot even consider it a fun game .CoD4 is full of lazy "campers", Halo is funnier for me and seems to almost 800 000 people daily. If I had to choose for me 3 and 1 are almost on par, perhaps as a whole game 1 is better, mainly the campaign, but just talking about multiplayer, 3 and 1 are almost the same quality and fun wise, Halo 2 was a bit less fun for me at least, 3 is more a back to basics and back to the root of Halo gameplay. I would not have even bought a Xbox if it were not for Halo.
I agree Colbert. I think for every step forward in awesome innovation (Forge, Video Recording freaking rocks) they sacrificed something from the Campaign. The single player has too many flaws for it to stand as the epitome of console FPS for me. While I don't prefer the online style of Halo, there is no denying it's a lot of fun and great with friends... until CoD4 showed up. We still go back from time to time, I just wish that people would not take pointing out flaws in the game (no bosses, wtf?) as an attack on the Halo brand, which has a great universe/mythology that really needs to be better explored. Still, despite my gripes I love the theme music (third best behind MGS and Zelda!) and respect what it did for console FPS.
@Xelai Thats the thing though.My friends just play Halo 3 and Guitar Hero.Halo 3 is the only game they play because they are casual gamers.They dont play any other games besides Halo 3 and some Wii games.But I am a PC gamer and I play different shooters. Besides I bought the original Xbox on launch day and for so many years I played Halo 1 and Halo 2 all the time.I even went to an H2 MLG tourney in Austin Texas.I bought a 360 for Halo 3 but I played it for a few months,got bored and moved on.It happens and I can deal with it.If you guys want to continue playing Halo 3,power to you,but I have my own gaming needs and Halo 3 does not fulfill it.Sorry @Onslaught I love Cod4.The customizations are amazing.
Im all for the games on the ps3 they do have some great ones coming. No one should rip on this new halo 3. Halo 3 was dope (multiplayer, singleplayer, the achievements, the skulls, etc.) The graphics are way better then halo 2 and the multiplayer is far more addictive with bungie.net and such. So dont call it halo 2.5 and this new halo 2.8. It looks promising and im all for new halo games and multiplayer as long as bungie is doing it.
halo 3 is awesome
but not as awsome as halo 1
Halo 3 is great. The nights where i get very competitive. oooooo i hate crappy team members. But i Gotta love weapons.. all are great and balanced, tuned, properly. Thank you bungie... for killing many hours of my life and making my college life difficult.
Halo is a sketchy word to use on this site. It hits the nerve of a lot of people *sony fanboys* what!? who said that?
duh it still has play. didnt it take back the live crown a few weeks ago? there are just as many ppl that play halo 3 online as ppl that got mgs4 on ps3
3 mill play halo3?
Keep the series locked up until something fresh can be done with it. They have exhausted this one to no end.
