One of the most anticipated games of the year has now been reviewed by all major game sites. See alternative sources below for the full list of reviews.
IGN is paid off my MS
but...all reviewers are giving Halo 3 amazing scores?
who can we blame now Sony boys?
EDIT - so theyve condensed all the Halo 3 reviews into this one article and then chnaged its titles..why?
wtf are you talking about? no one ever doubted Halo 3's success, not even hardcore Sony Fanboys.
We get you're point. You've opened up every Halo 3 review with the same thing. " ____ is paid off by MS." I know it is sarcasm. I know you love Halo 3. I do, too. But just be happy Halo 3 is finally here. Stop trying to bait Sony fanboys.
Eat it droids, Halo 3=GOTY
1 - obviously
IGN is paid off my MS
lol my ms?
We will do whatever it takes to underscore your favorite games on X360, as to ridicule them so you can cry more like babies!!!
We will not tolerate Xbox 360 as an HD gaming console, even if Sony lost the console wars. We don't care if the 360s win, it's just an illusion created by fanboys to make the 360s look better.
Playstation 3 is all about winning, Microsoft's Xbox 360 is all about copying and failing. SONY MUST WIN, we won't say the other way around!
Don't tell us that we're jealous because we are the proud Japanese inventors that brought you far advanced technology more than anything else in the world today!
XBOX 360 AIN'T GOT NO HOME IN JAPAN. Period.
No body gives a rip about Japan and the lame a$$ games they develop.
Ign.com states that you can finish Halo3 in about 5 hours with co-op and the single player is only a small portion of the package...Explain this then Halo2 sold 7 million copies but yet xbox live only had 2 million accounts...So I guess those other 5 million people that bought Halo2 for single player don't count...It's amazing how double standards these editors are. The only flaw in Heavenly sword was that it was short 7-8 hours..Halo3 has several flaws but no points taken from it...For me a game that gets 9.5/10 should stand out above other games in the same genre, which clearly Halo3 doesn't. Just read the reveiws that are 8.5 and 8.8 and then you can see an honest reveiw for Halo3 but 9.5 for a game with these many flaws is outragious. It's funny how you xbots were talking about how terrible A.I. in Killzone2 was, I guess the joke is on you since Halo3 A.I. is terrible but who cares right it scored a 9.5/10 so I guess COD4 is going to get 10/10 and since UT3 is multiplayer only I guess it's a 10/10..THese Halo3 reviews are a phucking joke, You xbots know this and everyone else knows it or will ...Halo3 reveiws are a phucking Joke!!!!!!
I guarantee if your stank a$$ would just play halo and give it a shot you would fall in love with it just like everybody else. So why don't you just stop your whining and jump in already. Woot!
Yup Yup... very nice.
with forge and the game video that is plenty to make this game innovative. I think noone really sees the potential of these two seperate much less combined features...but oh yeah this game is overrated because it wont be in the PS3
Edit sorry I meant to comment on takers reply to ghost's comment
Ken kutaragi must be turning in his grave.... Oh i forgot, and all the other Sony Fanboys.
Well not the sensible ones. This is only good news for the whole industry, ps3 included. I only have a ps3 but i'm really looking forward to playing this if any of my friends get a 360, however unlikely that is.
lol this has nothing to do with sony or its fanboys... EVERYONE with half a brain knew this game would get this score (i predicted a 9.6). So quit with the flamebait and enjoy the game in two days.
Dude... no ownage here. Everyone knew it would score high. Hell, if the game was a 10 minutes video of old people playing golf in winter, it would've scored 9.0
No one in there right mind would have thought this game would receive low scores. Halo is a proven franchise and people that have played the first two knew what to expect: Great single player mode, Great online, with no great graphical improvements, no innovative gameplay, and the same gameplay as the first two.
Yes the 360 has a great game, they have several. The sony fans are not in denial like the M$ fans in thinking that the other console doesn't hav3 a great game. I knew that this game was going to get 95% or more, its sort of the like the media and the reviewers already had it in there mind it was going to be great. I'm not surprised that IGN did find few more flaws that I thought yet they still gave it 9.5. Halo is a blast to play and really fun, but what pisses me off and why I dont play halo is that the reviewers seem to be way more forgiving for halo's flaws than pretty much any other game out there. lol. If it was any other game it would have gotten a lower score, because the single player was a little lacking. I also like how they say its 10-12 hours, on the hardest level setting.
I believe I read a little while ago that you'd eat your hat if IGN didn't give Halo 3 10/10...?
*Hands Meus his hat*
MGS3 got a 9.8 just thought I would let you know.
so go play it, stupid.
And Gears of War got a 9.5, but we are not talking about games that came out last year or 3 years ago are we...
even if this game got a zero it will sell millions. maybe this will shutup trolls like that nassim douche.
great game deserves every last point
finish the fight baby
9.5 is allright, considering the two others got higher. Nevertheless, a nice end for the franchise
How do you end a franchise this big and why would you? I think MS and Bungie would be nuts if they did. Maybe the movie will spark some type of spin off game or take the story in a different direction? This could possibly be the biggest selling game in over a decade+.
Every news station, media outlet, store circular and cable stations (MTV, VH1, SPIKE / GTV) are advertising and talking about this game. I think there will be another Halo (excluding Halo Wars) down the road. It might not surface until MS's "NextBox" but it will surface.
Lol the ign servers seem to have overloaded all of a sudden. I wonder why.....
see cvg's review 9.7 BUT they have a gun to there heads. Look at the second line of the downers.
Is it the story or is it don't say anything if you want your money.
Short campaign mode
Some other stuff we can't talk about...
If you are a REAL GAMER, than you have to be excited about this. Non-stop reviews are coming in and looks to be clearly a winner. I been looking for a Falcon and found out that 360's are selling out everywhere. Pretty much shuts up the sony boys that said halo players already own a 360.
Halo overhype??? HAHA, losers!
360 = second to none
No. what you call ''real gamers'' are casual gamers who don't know what real good games are. Hardcore gamers don't play this overhyped average game.
Let me guess, hardcore gamers only play little big planet?
Actually a "hardcore" games would play any and all games no matter the hype, simply because its a game. Hence the term "hardcore".
Kind of like how "hardcore" movie goers go to see every movie and so on and so on.
I could care less what some stuff shirt geek at a gaming site or magazine thinks about a video game. The game has to appeal to me personally for me to get excited about it. I got Bioshock but never played it (1 of the highest rated games ever). I got caught up in the hype but it just doesn't apeal to me.
Battlefield (XBox 360) had an over all rating some where in the 70's and it was one of the most fun games I ever played on XBL. I think it's great that Halo 3 is getting rated so well but did anyone honestly think it wouldn't?
All I care about is the story answers some questions and actually has a definitive ending, and the online play is smooth with not too many bugs and glitches discovered down the road, and if there are Bungie addresses them fast.
just got back from target about two hours ago before closing. They had a full stock of 360's. My friend works at another target, he called me and told me they have sold 0 360's today. So there really not selling out EVERYWHERE. By the way the wii was sold out both places and they got a few in and were sold out in less than 30 mins. So if you go by sales wii wins.
PS When I went to target to show my girlfriend a game on the 360, lost planet by the way I couldnt' because it had the red ring of death. Also my friend who works at target just went through two 360's in a week because of the red ring of death. They just leave it off because if they leave it on more than 8 hours a day it just dies.......
IGN was the one I was waiting for. ^_^
What got owned? you?
Or are you saying Bioshock owns Halo3?
Oh wait you have nothing to say. Right.
What the hell?
Neither the gamespot review nor this one think it matters that A) the game is incredibly short B) Halo 2 in HD graphics.
Blinded by hype. Sigh.
wait till you see the other reviews...
lol your about to have a really tough day
Yeah... it's Halo. It's always like that. Hardcore gamers will never understand the Halo hype because they play masterpieces like MGS, Zelda, Bioshock and Unreal Tournament.
Halo is like a Big-Mac. It's low-quality, bad for your health (mental) and way too popular.
All of them said its around 15 hours. When the hell did 15 hours become short for an shooter game?
but the game is longer than HS, if you wanted to know.
pathetic losers on here. spending all their energy being bitter fanboys must be tiresome. play lair, heavenly sword or fold for a cure. take a break from trolling. don't you have any good games to play to occupy your time?
I know less than perfect single player, still gets a 9.5. It seems the only thing that matters anymore in game is the online part of the game.
Everywhere you read 15 hours, come on. Did you even read the ign? its 8 hours but if you play it on a harder setting its 10-15. I love how one review says its 7 hours, then another says 10-13, on the hardest setting, haha then this guy say its 15 hours the time keeps on going up.
next up, Mass Effect!
Now a year from now I'll be purchasing a PS3 for MSG4
More like half a year
Remember when Sony said "spring" for the PS3 launch? Sony actually meant that the release date would "bounce" into Fall.
The same is true of MGS4.
I dont care about single player. I would buy this game just for the Online play lol
The multiplayer is the best, BUT the campaign mode is a must play. Halo is one of those games with an epic storyline -- you have to play the campaign too.
actually brought down IGN. Wow
Steam/xfire/gamespy/PSN/XBL : darkequitus
360 - COD 4 Beta
PC - Crysis demo/MP beta
PS3 - HS
Wii - Gathering dust
I didnt know that u were an analyzer..
If u r so why dont u get ur self a job like one and stop wasting ur time here?
I think u r the blind one. When all the gaming sites has awarded halo with more then 9.5 then they are not blind..U r my friend
Ok if im the blind one how do you explain the first 2 OXM reviews which both said its Halo 2 in HD graphics?
Cause your a little fanboy clutching at straws man, get over it, its a great game (like everyone with an iq above 12 knew it would be) thats getting great reviews because its a great game that hasn't lost sight of whats most important: GAMEPLAY.
because you fanatical halo haters will cherry pick the halo reviews for the info you want and NEED to support your opinion. Face it you hate the idea that this game is getting good reviews and it's gnawing at you.
LMAO IT BROKE THE WEBSITE!!!! I can't even open it! this is insane lol
9.5 is a awesome score, sure it maybe a bit lower than the others but IGN has been very tough scoring next gen games, if I recall correctly only Bioshock has recieved a higher score from IGN and they absolutely loved that game for being the great new IP that it is. IGN has been very good with their reviews an a 9.5 from them is says alot. Heres a the highlight from IGN's closing comments:
"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 console shooters so high, it may never be surpassed this generation. There will be plenty of aspects for fans to nitpick, but it's hard to argue against Halo 3 as the most complete game available on any console."
Wow= they said its the most complete game available on any console.=
Where is Nasim now? Wait, did I here the distant sound of sobbing then a pop of a .22? LOL
Off to finish HS - should take 10 minutes - sell it pave the way for my delivery tomorrow
Dude that was classic.
But he'd need more than a dinky .22 to break through his thick ass skull.
.38 at the very least.
Only hollow points would be enough.
That, or .50 cal.
Dark you made me piss myself! That was so funny it would be criminal to not give you a bubble.
They shouldn't have let everyone know the exact time it would be posted on the site. The server got too crowded and it took forever to load.
GAMESPOT HALO 3 REVIEW = 9.5
IGN HALO 3 REVIEW = 9.5
LESS THAN 24 HOURS NOW.....
FINISH THE PWNAGE.
ok xbots enjoy your little halo now, thats the best its going to get after this.
as for us sony fanboys its just geting started.
Who are you trying to convince?
MWUAHAHAHA, fanboys crack me up man. Good response jay3.
i totally agree......( goes and sits in corner..stairs at XMB Bar.... brother is upstairs nading people online....continues to stair at xmb bar, oh how much fun i am having with my xmb bar....)
Guys this review is bad. Read the UK IGN one, it is actually balanced and gives some bad points aswell as the good ones.
stop man really you are embarrassing yourself, seriously.
DO u really think if halo 3 lookd like halo 2 HD they will award it with so high score?
I have read all the importend reviews now.
And all of they say that Halo brings things that will last for years and never seen in a game befor.
And the graphic are amazing.
If u look at COD4,GOW, KZ2 what do these games have in common?
NO colores..Almost black and gray.
Take a picture og halo and make it at the same lever of color just like GOW or Kz2 and u will se what Im talkin about.
In halo 3 the red is red,the purple is purple,the black is black and the green is green.
Despite a few moments of slowdown, this is a gorgeous game, especially considering the demands of the replay function. And it's to die for in 1080p.
