Everyone loves sequels to big games. Sometimes they live up to expectations, but often times they do not. After TeamXbox's thought provoking editorial entitled Why Bungie Gave Up November? It got Voodoo thinking.
So... who knows? I don't think gamers will be let down by the multiplayer experience, and the single player will most likely be more popular due to the recently announced 4-player co-op, but there's always the chance that die-hard fans still won't agree with the story. We'll just have to wait and see, won't we?
therefore it cannot live up to the hype
i will be buying this game at the midnight launch and i have faith this will be one of the best games ever
but theres too much hype...sony boys will pick apart every little thing
like how killzone2s graphics didnt live up to the hype...but they were still amazing grpahics
but for me the BETA killed it, so much so that traded in the 360 after that as it was the only game worth waiting for.
The only console that's giving me a true NEXT GEN experience is the PS3.
I think my brother bought your used 360 and he plays it every night! Email me after you play Drake's Fortune and I'll cut you a real deal for your PS3 so you can get a Wii!
you were believable....until you talked
I very much doubt SofaKing even ever had a 360.
He probably thinks he'll convince people not to buy one if he tells everyone he traded it in.
I'm only baffled that someone would go through all that trouble. Sort of like when you see people standing in the street shouting that the world is going to end.
I guess no one has the right to an opinion. Everyone has to like the same thing you 2 do.
Give me a break Vickers. I'm perfectly aware of the almighty "right to an opinion" excuse. I have an equal right. The right to think your opinion is worthless. And the right to tell you. Until you find someone with the right to shoot me, that wont change.
I hate people who hate peoples opinions.
Ok Vickers. Just give me a moment to consider how that affects me.
I don't believe you're really naive enough to value everyone's opinions. An opinion is only worth as much as the person who holds it. And i've got to tell you, the world is full of worthless people. People who are unintelligent, slow-witted, and predictable. People who are driven only by their own simple ideals, or indoctrinated by the homogenised society of mindless copies.
All these people hold opinions, and these opinions serve no purpose, and achieve nothing. These opinions will die with the people who hold them.
I don't waste my energy hating these opinions. I look down on them, learn what I can from them, and then let them pass by. Your opinion of me is one such opinion.
dumbwood, is that you don't realize you are looking in the mirror when you see slow, simple people driven by simple ideas.
Noone has been able to compete with Japanese electronics for the last 40 years, maybe even longer.
Sony is one of the company's that started that dominance, and through some magical osmosis you think a SOFTWARE company is gonna do it with only the second iteration of it's console and one which is plagued with more problems than the Iraq war. Yet you want to call those who support the console that right now looks like it has this generation in the bag slow and dumb??
Buddy the word's DUMB TOOL don't begin to describe you.
And here folks, we have a prime example of an opinion.
He starts by poorly altering my username to create a supposedly insulting one. This seems to amuse him. Followed by an overused insult.
He then makes a wild claim, which is practically impossible to prove, which is probably why he didn't try.
Then he misses the point entirely, apparently thinking I called his opinions worthless because he supports the PS3, when in fact it was because his comment was ignorant and transparent. He spices that one up with some pro-PS3 propaganda, which he was clearly slow enough to fall for when he parted with his cash. He also doesn't know what osmosis means.
And to close it all off, he uses another overused and very American insult.
This, folks, is why I find so many opinions worthless.
@Daishi, LMAO that was funny
My opinion (if anyone cares)
Don't slander other peoples opinions. Everyone has right to state thier opinion. Atleast there hasn't been random hardware faqs yet...omfg. You also can really go off a beta, its just to give the user an idea of what the gameplay might be like. You shouldn't even bring graphics into the equation. Granted Halo 3 won't beat Gears of War...But it will Sell more and more people will play it online. Kudos/props/mad respect/my hats off to the advertizing department at microsoft.
In then end with what i think Halo 3 will be....
The multiplayer will be bomb diggity (if I may)
and the Single player will "suck monkey". Then again I never bought the game for Single player, I bought the game for multiplayer. Like atleast ~65% of Xbox 360 owners. Its all about RED vs BLUE, not
"masterchief yet again saves the human race for the upteenth time".
The Hype won't negatively effect sales, it will just effect the scores my magazines/gaming sites. Yet alot of people will still buy halo3 and maybe a 360 because its...........Halo 3.
I just couldn't help myself to read your last comment with the Comic book store guy's (simpsons) voice in mind. Sorry. I agree with some of the stuff you had to say though, as if that matters LOL.
I've run into your kind before dumbwood, your parents probably talked you up all your life about how special you are and now you actually believe it.
There is nothing more annoying than some wannabe know-it-all who talks down to people like he were sitting on Mt. Olympus. Get off your high horse you retard, you are not impressing anybody with your limited vocabulary and pseudo sophistry. Instead what I notice is that you can't even refute anything I said and instead choose to focus on me. That might work with all the 12 yr olds that make up the xbot nation but you gotta try harder with us grown folk.
Daewoodrow, it is safe to say that you have real personality issues, so...good luck with that. Keep letting your arrogance blind you as you go on percieving life as you wish. As for this hype, I'll take it as it is given. I'm an avid gamer but Halo has not appealed to me as much as it could have. I don't care how much it sells because I don't benefit one bit from its financial state. But I'll definatley give it a go and see how exactly it lives up to its so called hype. And one more thing. @toughNAME, you brought up Killzone 2 for some odd reason in the beginning of these posts stating how it doesn't live up to its hype. How exactly do you know this? It is only in a pre-alpha stage according to the developers and is already looking impressive. You are are judging a game's target render (even though the old trailer was CGI, it was still a target render btw) to a pre-alpha stage. KZ2 is about a year off from its release so I'd give it a little more credit and I'm sort of astounded to the point of blushing that you would mention it here when Halo is the topic of discussion. It's kinda desperate to compare a game in a pre-alpha state, which is already looking suberb to say the least, to a supposive killer-app already on it's way to store shelves soon.
I call flamebait! (Ducks behind anti-fanboy shield, runs like hell for nearest bomb shelter).
BTW, it's Halo, and it's Bungie. Have a little faith.
why do you have to say its halo AND its bungie? this is the only game they ever did that amounted to anything. i will say it will do well by default on the basis that ms has never had or has another great first party game.
they also did the Myth series... a great RTS series
Apparently you haven't heard of Marathon, either.
Oh I see "beavis". So because Halo is Bungie's only "famous" achievment, we can't have faith in their ability to create games.
So by that logic, Tolkien is only really famous for The Lord of The Rings trilogy and The Hobbit. Does that mean we can't call Tolkien a good writer?
And the Wachowski brothers can't be called good movie makers because they're only famous for The Matrix?
Marathon was quiet big, proud PC owners had doom, and proud Mac owners had marathon, and soon xbox 360 will have marathon
to even be considered as a next gen game.
vs LAIR and CRYSIS
realism isn't needed you tool, and how is a poll news?
Honestly Nasim, is that the only thing you know how to say? Halo is too cartoonistic? You say that a million times in every single post whether halo is the topic or not. Is there anything about Halo that you actually like?
Dumb fanboy, brain of a goldfish.
...this coming from the same person who names Hot Shots 5 as a must have for PS3 owners.
Get a life dumb*ss.
Lair is a nice looking game. But not the best. But isnt Crysis only for the PC? If so then why bother its not a PS3 made game right?
At least it's not like Killzone 2 which is a black and white game. There are millions of colors, give me more than 2 of them please!
He's clearly trying to wind people up here even if he does think Halo is cartoony.If you don't want to play Halo3 then fine by me but only because i know how much more fun i will be having playing this so called cartoon game.
I know you find it hilarious to post on these articles but you only make yourself sound ignorant and without intelligence - really what's the point?
Played the Beta? I think if you havn´t played the beta, you should just be quiet. Because there is a lot of difference between watching Halo 3 on Internet and playing it.
And what of the grafics are cartoonish? Oh, it´s shiny and got more details, so it must be cartoonish. Ehh, think again.
@Daishi: Black and White? I've already said this once before but if you are so ignorant to claim that Killzone 2 is black and white then you must consider Gears of War to be "black and white" as well.
If some people would just read the article then they would realize that Bungie is being somewhat lazy about developing this game. Not like it matters though. Hell, they could go around collecting a million pieces of dog crap, slap a Halo logo on it and it would still sell millions.
@ anybody who played the Halo 3 beta: Did you honestly think the graphics were anywhere near "next gen" standards? I'll admit that it was all fun while it lasted, but it wasn't anything new either.
NO Alan Wake...
NO Mass Effect Trilogy...
NO Gears of War Trilogy....
NO Too Human Trilogy...
NO Halo Wars...
NO Halo 3...
NO Lost Odyssey....
NO Blue Dragon...
NO Marvel MMO...
NO Fable 2...
NO Eternal Sonata...
NO Dead Rising...
NO Grank Theft IV DLC...
NO Football @ 60fps...
NO Marketplace content...
NO Multiplayer chat...
And the "deal clincher" for Xbox360: NO NASIM & NO AQUAVIVA71!!!!
Naziboy: "HALO 3 looks too cartoonistic
to even be considered as a next gen game. vs LAIR and CRYSIS "
Yeah, *only* 4+ million gamers have already preordered HALO 3. How many preorders does Lair have ? Hmmm ? How are those reviews going ? How's those six axis controls shaping up for Lair ? Frankly, riding around on a 'Dragon' sounds alittle bit like a "cartoon" to me.
CRYSIS is a PC game, moron !! WTF !?! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA !!!
@aquaviva71 post #5: Your list is looking pretty weak compared to Xbox360's TOOL! Better add some more 'spaces' & multiplat's to your post !!!
I love these articles lol But really, hate halo or not its gonna come out with good score reviews. Personally I love the franchise and I can't see Bungie letting their baby fall to the wayside with so many heavyhitters (MGS4, Killzone, Bioshock, Mass Effect, GTA 4 etc) coming out soon.
Hot Shots 5,
Ratchet & Clank,
Unreal Tournament 3,
Time Crisis 4 with Guncon,
Gran Tourismo HD,
and then after Christmas(No more than one or two months after)theres:
Metal Gear Solid 4.
AND ofcourse MORE like..... GTA IV
Some of those games are coming to the 360 around the same time as the PS3, some of those games are IPs that I don't really care about, and most of those games won't be as much fun as Halo 3.
Could you please stop posting the exact same thing in every 360 thread.
You already did it twice plus you did the same thing in the Bioshock receives 10/10 at ap mag.
comment 57 and 64: You are pasting the exact same thing every where you go.
Don't know what it has to do with this article.
You really are a idiot. For starters GTA4 is coming to the 360.
( which will be PS3 best selling game on that list ) Unreal Tournament 3 is a PS3 timed exclusive.
How about 360 exclusive console games.
Lost Odyssey edit: ( january 1, 2008 ) according to gamestop
A nice combo of rpg's and FPS games wouldnt you say?
And thats only for this year. And only their exclusive console games.
So come back when your worthy. And next time think your wanna be 360 insults before you write them. GTA4 and Unreal Tournament 3 jeez.
Only 3 of those titles are actually going to be good.
I have a 360 and those, plus gears of war, are the only reason I have one.
I could give a rats a$$ what vickers and aquaviva have to say, but @down below
the launch title perfect dark zero offered 32 players online at a time,
i has nothing to do with hardware just what the designers want, you could have 40 v 40 on last gen hardware, but most peoples internet might not handle it well and that might be to many people
Hey man thats your opinion. Everyone has their own tastes. I think all will be great and I'm buying every single one of them.
So dont start talking stupid.
*Refer to post 3.10*
Last gen graphics - Sorry Bungie 'making stuff shiny' hasn't been impressive to anyone but diehard Xbox fans for years.
Uglyass art - dayglow colours seems to be a art problem that goes all the way back to the mediocre Marathon games
No dedicated servers - Billions of dollars in the bank and Microsoft can't even provide dedicated servers like the PS3 and PC gamers get for free?
Crappy last gen P2P networking - lag,lag,lag, host advantages, being force to search for servers with low ping times
Pathetic player count - 16 players in 2007 is a complete and utter joke. Even more pathetic when you consider how bad the graphics are in the game. Rigid characters covered in shiny metal is about the cheapest type of character you can render - no cloth, no hair, no skin, no dynamic/physics based elements to bounce around.
Why does Bungie even have to try to make a decent game when they know Microsoft has tens of millions of dollars to throw at the gaming media? Millions of dollars in ad money to assure 9.5/10 scores from review sites? Millions of dollars of inane for 'news' stories on gaming sites "Inteview with Bungie janitor about Halo 3 - He loves it!"
They're working on comparatively weak hardware, and it's the main reason why the graphics/physics/AI in Halo 3 have been (according to both the press and gamers alike) pretty weak. They have this huge, grandiose vision, and yet don't have the necessary horsepower to fulfill that dream. Halo 1 and 2 were amazing games from a graphical standpoint (just look at the review scores), and this is what makes Halo 3's current status all the more disappointing.
The other issue is Xbox Live. Microsoft relies on P2P networking, and there's limitations on how many people can be connected at once with that setup. Gears of War has 8 players online. Halo 3 has 16 players (identical to Halo 2). We've been seeing this trend for quite some time on the 360.
Sony has been in a bad position for the past two years, which is the reason why their hardware and their online service are so spectacular right now. They use powerful, dedicated servers (Cell-based). Their hardware can handle 32~40 players online with minimal lag, if any. It was Sony's battle to lose, and they've come back with flying colors. Microsoft really needs to rethink how it runs its online service because hardware is static, while software can constantly be improved. Microsoft had the mindset of "We're first to market, we have superior online service, it doesn't matter if Sony's platform is twice as powerful, etc", and that arrogant attitude has hurt them a lot.
I'll say the first bit slowly so you can understand.. The Halo graphics (are you still with me?) are not last gen. If you would actually take a moment to look at the game, you would see that. Just because Halo2's graphics were far ahead of the last gen, does not mean that Halo3's have to be so far ahead also.
The colours also look nice the way they were, Halo 2 had them too dark, and so do lots of games that are out now.
There is no need for dedicated servers! People seem to assume that you need them but you dont, not in a game like this. Besides, if you would actually get a job and buy a better connection, you wouldnt suffer from lag! (i believe that answers your number 4 too).
The player count, considering the apparent scale of the game is good. Too many players in a game like this makes it annoying. This isnt resistance where you just run around like a maniac (which isnt a bad thing). Certain games just suit certain player counts. Also, you cannot comment on player counts, when probably the only good PS3 title out at the moment has a staggering 1 player per console on it! ONE PLAYER! Geez, give a game a chance to show you its scale and graphics before you say how weak it is.
Finally, Halo CE was renowned to be one of the greatest FPS titles of all time. And dont use the old money trick, coz Sony is loaded and Killzone didnt exactly get rave reviews did it? Im not sure how you can insult the scores that halo games recieve. There is a simple reason why they pick up good scores.. I would let you guess, but im not sure if you even understand this plain english im writing so il tell you the answer.. Halo games have all been good so far. And this one will almost definately follow suit.
I understand for small maps like Lockout, or Ascension, but Coagulation and Burial Mounds, even with 16 people, were way too empty.
"you cannot comment on player counts, when probably the only good PS3 title out at the moment has a staggering 1 player per console on it!"
Uhh, isn't that how it is on the 360 for online multiplayer as well? I admire how you didn't counter a single thing I said and instead tried to draw attention away from those topics, but we're a bit too intelligent to get distracted by your banter.
"if you would actually get a job and buy a better connection, you wouldnt suffer from lag!"
Nice way to get people on your side. I had a great connection when I still had my Xbox 1, and still had to suffer through occasional lag on Xbox Live (Halo 2).
even 16 players is waaay to much
6v6 is like the perfect matchup (but only in blood gulch/coagulation/vahalla)
i dont know why sony boys think more ppl = better games?
I didnt reply to your post coz i was already typing back to the other guys. Check the reply time mate, you know that little number next to the word 'minute'?
Nope on most 360 games online you can have guests.. I just know there are a few PS3 games where you cant. But that doesnt matter, coz you can get mates round to play motorstorm all on one console.. Oh no wait, you cant. Well im sure theyll play with you on metal ge...nope, just the one again. Oh well, at least they can come and play Lair..can they? uh-oh . . . The mighty PS3 isnt seeming so tough now that it cant run more then 1 player on one console on it at once!
And its all very good saying how the PS3 can play 32 to 40 players online. But what are you gonna play? Resistance? Ok, thats an ok game, bit boring though. So that leaves what, HOME? Yea, the PS3 can support a few on that, its a shame that i have a life and dont really want to play it. As time passes, 360 games will support more people on line, but i was happy with 8 on GOW, meant that i could keep track of everything. And there is a reason that lots of games have 16 players on them. think about it, go on, dont hurt yourself tho DJ. You got it yet? Its coz 16 is a good number of players. Too many means you get killed from places that you don't even know exist.
Those answer your qs for you? By the way, im glad youve picked a name you can spell. 3 letters mite be too much for you
but that's actually MY complaint about Motorstorm as well. Again, the topic on hand is how many people you can play against online, and the more the better. In fact, the only people complaining that 6v6 on Halo is 'too hard' are probably the same people I constantly snipe down like flies. I mean, you did state: "i was happy with 8 on GOW, meant that i could keep track of everything. Too many means you get killed from places that you don't even know exist."
Based on that little complaint, I'm sure this is what goes through your mind every time you play online:
"Oh Noez, there's too many people! Should I fire at him? Or what about the other guy throwing stickies at me? Or what about the person up in the tower???!! -BOOM-"
My advice? Practice. ^_^
You're the sorta player who sits and camps and snipes. then as soon as someone goes near, just use the rocket. Yea, coz thats skilled. 1 on 1 sniping though, when there isnt anywhere to hide, im sure you love taking that rifle slow and deep.
And the more players the better is it? Ok, so if you were playing battle creek with 100 players wondering around that would be fun? No, itd just be everyone walking around with a shotgun firing everywhere, with no need to aim. That seems like what you like, shooting when you cant miss coz there are so many targets.
My advice? Get Laid... and quick
EDIT : BombBomb, your right. When there are less players, theres no place for the weaker links to hide
likes to just camp out or hide behind 16 other players while they do most of the work. Very challenging...NOT
The more people playing, the more potential for "weakest links."
Weakest Links = Gamers with weapons, taking up bandwith. Hey it happens.
More of a balance/skillset with smaller amount of players.
"Nope on most 360 games online you can have guests.. I just know there are a few PS3 games where you cant. But that doesnt matter, coz you can get mates round to play motorstorm all on one console.. Oh no wait, you cant. Well im sure theyll play with you on metal ge...nope, just the one again. Oh well, at least they can come and play Lair..can they? uh-oh . . . The mighty PS3 isnt seeming so tough now that it cant run more then 1 player on one console on it at once!"
its kinda funny how you have to use the excuse of "only 1 person can play a ps3 game at a time....honestly, who else really enjoys playing a 4 player game where if you dont have:
(a) a big enough screen
(b) a big/wide area
its not going to be that enjoyable...
thats why they made xbox live.....right? so you wouldn't have to scrunch up everyone to play one single game in one small area, you could play it in the comfort of your home. even if it is "more fun", its still better for you to be more comfortable and to have more of an area to play in...and with xbox live and home's support for download- able content, they could possible issue out a fix that could allow for 4 player support on 1 console. (they have done something like that before...its called adding modes)
"And its all very good saying how the PS3 can play 32 to 40 players online. But what are you gonna play? Resistance? Ok, thats an ok game, bit boring though"
i can say the same thing about halo 2....if it didn't have xbox live support or the xbox live formatted on to it so you can do something right after you just played a game with your friends, it would be a bit boring to just play a game online and then leave without having anywhere else you can go with your friends, or anything else to do....but not to worry, thats where home comes in....
"So that leaves what, HOME? Yea, the PS3 can support a few on that, its a shame that i have a life and dont really want to play it"
lmfao....once again, this is another idea or opinion coming from a hardcore 360 fanboy. im willing to bet that theres almost a.....75% chance that if home replaced 360's live, more than 75% of the people who once had xbox live would "jump in"
this is another one of those opinions where just because someone cant have it, they criticize it...even if it has the whole entire idea of the sims, you can still treat home like you treat xbox live! you don't have to spend all day building up your house....thats just more content added onto it, just like xbox live's downloading movies support, its not needed on xbox live, it just gives you something else to do....
another thing that is really sad is when people who really don't have life's say that they do. i mean, any person who could be out side playing or doing something constructive instead of typing their opinion on an internet forum has a life. there for admitting that yes i am going against what im saying and agreeing that i don't technically have what you seem to loosely use "a life". but then again, neither do you...
"As time passes, 360 games will support more people on line"
lol, i highly doubt it, and if you dont agree, show me one upcomming game that will support more than 18 players that actually has better or on par with graphics of halo 3
and by the time that more than 16 players are supported, it probably wont be available until the next xbox comes out, which is in a couple of years...
"And there is a reason that lots of games have 16 players on them. think about it, go on, dont hurt yourself tho DJ. You got it yet? Its coz 16 is a good number of players. Too many means you get killed from places that you don't even know exist"
like dj said, your probably one of those people who walk into a room, get killed by a random shot, start cursing, and then leave....
but to not sidetrack your response, some maps on some games could use more players to it. tdm or dm, if you can walk around for more than 10 seconds on an online game and not see anyone or anything happening, thats boring....
...don't know anything about strategy. Looks like you guys just want to enter a fragfest. If that is the case than you should stick with your Resistance. It takes no skill to rack up the kills in Resistance. People running around the whole map...pretty simple to take out with the right weapons. Sounds like that is what you like to do DJ...grab a snipe, grab a shotgun, find a camping spot...and just rack up the kills. Yeah that is alot of fun if I was a 12 year old screaming..."I GOT ANOTHER KILL" But that is alot harder to achieve with only 8 players to kill.
4v4 and 8v8 is the sweet spot for having good tactical games. Anything more and it just turns into a sloppy fragfest. It's easier to work as a team with only 8 people. Trying to get 20 people to work as a team would be hopeless. Most tournaments around the world consist of only 4v4 and 8v8. Can you imagine Gears of War 20 vs 20??? It would be a complete mess. 4v4 is perfect for the intense shootouts. But people that play Resistance wouldn't understand this.
"if you can walk around for more than 10 seconds on an online game and not see anyone or anything happening, thats boring...."
That is called adding tension to the game but I wouldn't expect any sony owners to understand this. I can see both you and DJ playing on the same team. DJ with the snipe and getting rushed by a few BR's...SNIPE DOWN! Xtreme just wandering around getting lost and complaining. Now we have both snipes, 2 BR's...than we stroll in their base and you hear.......BOMB PLANTED!!!!!!!!!!
"lol, i highly doubt it, and if you dont agree, show me one upcomming game that will support more than 18 players that actually has better or on par with graphics of halo 3"
The game is called Huxley and it supports 5000 players :)
dj that inferior machine your talking about runs madden at 60 fps a second while the ps3 will only hit 30.
I dunno dudes, but me and my friends stopped doing that years ago. We like to use Rifles on the run; games with 12~16 players (all snipes) are frickin' crazy! =]
EDIT for Socomnick: Say what you will about Madden. Killzone, Metal Gear, and Lair prove that EA is just not using the full potential of the system. For example, if Sony can make sports games that run native 1080p & 60fps, why can't EA?
The number of players online imo depends on the size of the map youre playing so it doesnt really matter if you can have 500 or just 16 players online
Your starting to sound jealous more and more with your comments DJ. Oh yeah Live don't lag so stop with the lies already, if you actualy ever used Live instead of lieing about it you would know. About your "weak console" comment it seems to me that the devs keep running out of memory on the PS3, so who has the weak console?
Well hell, you allways have Grayzone 2 to look forward to. Just one question DJ, if you hate the 360 and would never touch a 360, How the hell would you know if it lagged or not? Not been a very good year for you PS3 fans has it? with only one week of good sales, no games and the games you do get score 6s and get pushed back.
Not to mention all the ports for the PS3 accept one look like sh!t (what is it now like 25 to 1, 360?) You get rumble a year later and your online sucks balls. I know what your come back will be "RED RING OF DEATH" but thats it, you guys have "nothing else" Sorry bro but the evedince speaks for itself, the PS3 is "toast" might as well cut a hole in it and use it for a toilet lid. Enjoy your Sega CD/Blu-Ray movie player because thats all thats keeping the PS3 alive but this Christmas season say good buy to your love because without GTA4, Who gives a f**k.
As was said, 8v8 and 4v4 seem the current best amounts of players for skill to show. And it depends on the game type for which of those two is better. And yes, bigger maps start to suggest more players for gametypes (for example, a bigger map on gears might suit 8v8 or even 4v4v4v4), and other games may suit 16v16 or more.
And DJ, geez man. I usually snipe, and I snipe on the run. But sniping on the run is incredibly difficult with more players. Because if im on the move, odds are that more people are looking at me then i can look at, so i can get killed by the campers. Its a problem that eveybody suffers. Too many players restrict what can happen in the game!
And for my final comment on the thread (lol). Halo 3 will be a good game, provided Bungie stick to what they do best (30 seconds of fun, over and over, with nothing getting annoying or boring, and noone getting punished). It seems like they have done a good thing on the achievements too, (none of those 'play for 1000 hours' or 'kill 100000 players'), so no one feels forced to play if they want achievements. I thought the Beta was really good, and i have no doubt that every 360 owner will have the great game they have come to expect from the Halo series.
You haven't even seen or played the final game, and some of you are already trying your best to downplay it. So, until the game is released...
BUNGLIE ALAWAYS MAKES FUNNY, EXCITING, SCARY LONG LASTING GAMES. THEYVE ALREADY PLAYED THROUGH THE SINGLE PLAYER MANY TIMES AND SAY ITS ALOT OF FUN AND CAN BE PLAYED OVER AND OVER AGAIN. ITS GOT REPLAYABILITY, EXCELLENT MULTIPLAYER, GREAT GRAPHICS, ITS NOT GONNA SUCK. THIS AND BIOSHOCK WILL BE UP FOR GAME OF THE YEAR.
And they say that if you play the same campaign map again, it will be completly diffrent than the last one. The enemies are not at the exact same spot, you get some even newer weapons. Example: the gravity hammer. (you know, the one that Tautorus almost [email protected]
And i am not trying to start a fanboy war here, but if there was a mediocre game, it is Killzone. It was full with buggs. Yeah, I agree the MP was a little fun, but it was the same thing all the time. And the buggs spoiled the fun too.
Polls aren't news.
thats saying that halo 2 sucks, halo 3 will be atleast as good... no1 wants a game just as good though, everyone expects alot from halo 3 and i dont think it will live up to the hype... honostly there are alot of other gaames id rather play now
Realistic thinking: No. It's not gonna suck, it may not be the ultimate game, but no way it's going to suck.
Fanboy 1: How teh Fux can u say such things? Blasphemy! HALO 3 CANT LOOSE BABY! WHOO!!
Fanboy 2: Halo-cartoon 2.5 sux and you all know it.
I'm gonna go with the first one...
EDIT: Since someone actually disagreed with me on this, I'm just going to ask this:
What makes you think Bungie will do anything different this time around? So what if the graphics isnt as good as Crysis, it's Halo's gameplay i like.
If u still disagree, i feel sorry for you, as you cant really complain about my personal opinions.
