The score says it all. Click the jump.
we all knew from day one 1UP was full of xbots
Most biased site! Luke ugly Smith worked for them, now he works for Bungie, but even if that was not the case we all know they are Microsoft funboys, especially that Dan Hsu(shoe) that is boss there.
Quote me on this, they will NEVER give 10 to Sony exclusive, they always find something that is wrong with those games. Just check last podcast episode, where special guest was Ryan Payton and while they were talking about MGS4 they were 95% of the time telling things that they didn't like, very little of praising. Check it if you dont believe me.
BTW-i predicted this 7 days ago. Check it here if you dont believe me
What i said "Great points but it will get straight 10s from 1UP stuff! Who wants to bet?"
i was being sarcastic
Graphics wise, an 8...There is nothing new that will bring new fans...I already knew it was going to get good scores before the game even came out....It's like Halo2 all over again 9.4 and then 3 months later everyone like well we probably fell for the Hype...How can a game be a 10 and not even be on par with graphics with other games..You could say what you want, these reveiewers lately will by pass any flaws found in a 360 FPS game. I'm not saying Halo3 is not good but, no way did it deserves a 10 when graphic wise is average and coming from halo1 and halo2 is not reventing anything gameplay wise,,,,which all sequels get nitpick at....bias....what do you think? phuck all these reveiws, because it's not a reveiw when all they talk about is the multiplayer and it's like the single player doesn't exist, which tells me it sux just like Halo2 single player...
Lost credibility a long long time ago. Bungie could have re-released Halo 1 and 1UP would have gave it a 10 anyway.
Lol where will the site be this time next year?
from Dan Hsu?
XboT... XboTs...Xbotx full of BBOTSSSSSSSSSS MSFT payed off blah blah blah. People are still ass hurt about KZ 2 AI lol.
You're just sore that you can't HONESTLY earn a 10/10.
Without pay-offs, Microsoft would be in a ditch and Warhawk would be the biggest game in the industry right now...
but but sniffle sniffle...
"That's why I've been wearing this bandana all along, it's so it can catch my tears and soak up my snot from my pathetic whining...".
yeah, 1up is way too biased for my liking. This game is scoring huge though. However, I take reviews from 1up with a grain of salt.
This game is averaging 97% from 13 respectable game sites/mags. This game is just COMPLETELY PWNING!
MS seems to own every damn place on earth and pays to every damn reviewer. No wonder PS3 fails.
PS3 loosers are pathetic.
LOL funny avatar. Ps3 owners on 25th sept..TONIGHT WE DINE IN HELL
What did Halo1 and Halo2 do? not a damn thing and PS2 still won...I haven't read a honest reveiw in a long time and I guess i'm not going to start now...I can't wait for COD4 so ya xbots will know what a real FPS next gen should be...
who cares about 1up? it has lost it credibility a while ago.
Yes shure, 1st up, gamespot, gamerdaily, gamerpro, newsweek, NYT all lost credibility when they bashed the POS3 and its games. I'm sure you only trust reviews from sonydefenseforce website and from reviewers like nasim/larry007 etc.
your really thinking too many conspiracy's these days...roflmao
Daam halo 3 just totaly [email protected]
You mean for Sony fanboys due to feelings being hurt because 1up telling how they truely feel about a game without fear from the super power Sony and their army of rabids.
another great game in the game library for xbox 360. best year yet for xbox fans. first it was bioshock and now halo3, and in a few months will be mass effect and call of duty 4. enjoy xbox fans! this is the best year ever in gaming history!
Look at all the freakin PS3 idiots rushing to the defense of their console because of one game. STFU retards. ZOMG XBOT SOUNDS LIKE XBOX HAHAHAHA> U L0S3RS S0NY PWNS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dumb asses.
Hey, i am a ps3 fan and I suppose I will be the one to put my head on the block: As far as I was aware this was ALWAYS going to get massive scores. It isnt unsuprising, MS NEEDS halo3 to be a success because it is THE killer app of the consoles life. Now, seriously, I hope that the game really is as good as the reviews are saying because I would hate to have a situation like with halo2 where reviewers were too caught up in the hype. I still have a feeling if this was a ps3 exclusive it would be on average 8.8 to 9 - I can also picture the reviewers saying Great multiplayer, but with a poor single player and the graphics not pushing the boundries of what next gen should be, we can only warrant giving this 8.9.
Still all this is only MY opinion, and as I have said before I do hope as a GAMER before a ps3 owner that this game rocks.
So are you trying to say Xbox exclusives get better review scores due to reviewer bias towards Microsoft's Platform. I have to disagree here though sony has a wide array of games those games that are deemed worthy of good reviews receive them like god of war , mgs games. Games like lair and heavenly sword failed to get praise because they did not deserve it.
No, what I mean is, I think reviews are generally more favourable towards the 360. It might well be sony's fault for all the bravado before ps3, maybe they built it up so much it cannot compete with the hype. Lair in my opinion doesnt look great to play, can agree with reviews there but, heavenly sword has been awesome. My point is that at the moment reviewers DO seem to be more tolerant of flaws on 360 games. I am not saying conspiracy at all because that is nonsense but take dirt for example: looks as good on ps3, better framerate on ps3 but lower score.
Anyway, sorry to ramble but wanted to put my opinion across because in the last few months reviews have been very peculiar in general.
(although that site that reviewed just the sp of halo3 is bloody stupid, and that is the side of fanboys that I hate. Just appreciate halo3 as beeing a great game)
I thought 1Up was full of Nintendo Fanboys?
Eh, either way, IGN and Gamespot and gamepro and about every other site I have actually ever heard about has given it high scores, as have the people I know who have actually played it. I guess I will assume the game is actually good and play it myself and see if my opinion changes.
devilsadvocate i agree with you on that one..
bungie just released halo crap and it still got good scores.. Halo 1 was the best.. Halo 2 was ok and halo 3 brings nothing new to the table but gets good scores.. I hate reviewers these days.. They suck soo bad its funny.. Anything with online and if its a fps gets good scores.. Developers try and bring something new to gaming and gets bad scores..
How many accounts does nasim have these days. This is getting old...
They could try banning his IP adress.
but that still not enough to make me a fan of the series. Didn't like H1 and H2 so I really wasn't looking toward H3. But good scores from everywhere, go and enjoy 360 fans.
And you guys believe these scores?
Unless Halo 3's multi-player has furthered the industry and REVOLUTIONIZED multi-player as a whole...a 10/10 is pretty unrealistic.
It would need to be Half-life 2 good to get that sort of score from me.
Yo suburban ganSTA change your avatar you look like a moron ooo and by the way eat a d|ck
nol will take u serious with that picture take it off, u look like a bloody clown, oh and stop beating round the bush with these reviews, halo has just kicked every other games ass
To start with, The Forge and video playback, not to mention the game itself.
It would need to be branded sony to get that sort of score from you.
but but sniffle sniffle...
"That's why I've been wearing this bandana all along, it's so it can catch my tears and soak up my snot from my pathetic whining...".
Is getting awesome scores but why are all of a sudden people acting like this is a shock? The game is great simple as that. PS3 isn't dead just because Halo is getting 9's and 10's. Will you people get your hands off Sony balls lol.
What has Halo got anything to do with Sony or PS3? Nothing yet whenever a 360 game gets a good score the PS3 Dead Marching band appears with they're non-stop rambling. I dont know if you've noticed, but hardly any PS3 owner is checking these Halo stories. Why? Because they wont get the game. They're not interested.
So who exactly, other than yourselves, are people boasting to? I just find it dumbfounding but alas, continue
Meh I dunno man. I own em all like you. PSWII60 but a Perfect score is a hard drive for me. I think that there are so few 10/10 games out there(SM64, God of War, Soul Calibur 2, Earthworm Jim 1 & 2, Zelda OOT, FF7 I could go into detail on why these games but I wont)... So I am looking forward to this game but no more then COD4 and UT3. It has replay value for me and my friends. Halo Parties and such. Other then that I will beat the game and thats about it... The online doesn't interest me after then Haxx in Halo 2 and all...
I am veering from my actual response to you. Fan boys will be fan boys... I have like 6 people on this page blocked. Asking them why is like asking why the sky is blue and you know that.
I myself don't like the halo add campaign because I now feel that any 14 or 15 yo gamer will feel more connected to veterans that never existed in a war that was made up then they will about real WWII and Vietnam vets... Thats depressing to me...
Truth is everyone on this site is interested in Halo 3 man. Its a possible turning point and a landmark in gaming history. Its huge and in the eyes of most rightfully so. This site is full of 360 fans, ps3 fans and gaming fans. I'm anticipating this game to be good, Even great but perfect really is a hard drive for me... Pacing, Graphics, Sound, Scale, Lieniarity (??? How versatile a game is), all that and more plays into it... It will be fun and exciting. I know this for fact. Fanboys will argue Perfect score. Even 360 fans may think perfect is kinda odd, This is the nature of the arguments...
I know I didn't really stick to what you said meus but I wanted to elaborate on my thoughts and I have a lot of respect for your posts. Good Haloing everyone. I'll see you online Tuesday =P
The plot thickens as micro's massive conspiracy begins to unfold;
1ups in on it
Gamespots in on it
IGN's in on it
Eurogamer is in on it
Gamepro, Gamespy, Pro G, Gamersdaily are all in on it
your neighbors are in on it
your friends are in on it
millions of gamers are in on it
sony is in on it
the whole world around you is just plotting against you thats all, whats that noise over there?, why is that light blinking?, wierd huh?, look behind you, whats that?, oh see that man smiling enjoying his lunch, nah really he's laughing at you, what's that the phone but when you answered the mysterious unkown charachter hung-up????, if you only knew where to find him?, then you could unlock the secrets of this tangled web of conspiracy thats surrounding you, the signs are there you just need to decipher them, ssshhh keep it down someones coming???, oh sorry thats just Master Chief, I wonder what he wants=
I dont usually agree with you but man, that was one funny post
Yeah I used to dislike Jokes but he is a funny guy =P
I am surprised given that 1up usually is PS3 bias. I expected a lower score from 1up.
Because I think Halo 3 is great xD
While the game is scoring big and personally I do not care I'm waiting for COD4. Now thats real Multiplayer. My impression of Halo MP is WTF is this fvcking auto aim bullsh!t.
For people who say 1up are not biased.
Remember the "Mr Kojima, Eat a d!ck" in the show? non biased?
1up reviews name of game not the game. Also before you start whining KZ2 AI for your infromation Killzone: Liberation on PSP has very good AI and it can only get better.
Also talking about Killzone Liberation and 1Up reviewing name. There is the proof.
IGN: http://psp.ign.com/articles... 1up: http://www.1up.com/do/revie...
Also Gamespot are slightly biased. Oblivion on X360 get best score when on PC it runs better, more graphical, better controls, more content and on PS3 it has way faster loading and slightly more graphical. Their scores?
PC Version which should has the highest score:
PS3 Version which should have score higher then X360:
And X360 Version:
While its only a few .x it shows they are favoring X360.
Also Halo is not about Sonyfans like you Xbots keep saying. It includes all PC Gamers which are the real FPS gamers and every single PC Gamer knows Halo is overrated bunch of bullcrap.
Every single REAL FPS Gamer is playing Crysis Beta or will be playing Crysis Demo on 26th not Halo 3.
Your autoaim gripe is pretty ridiculous, and shatters your argument into a thousand little pieces that Halo 3 gamers will take turns taking a steaming dump on.
I love CoD4 Beta, I was just playing it a few min ago. The autoaim in CoD4 is ridiculous. Much more noticeable than Halo MP.
I'll be playing COD4 on PC not the x360. it will run better more graphical better controls and more reliable.
Ive been through the hype of golden eye, halo 1, and halo 2.
they were all overhyped imo.
Im gonna judge halo 3 this weekend, a friend of mine who is a huge xbox fanboy will be bring 4 controllers. But from the sounds of the review's im am not getting much info other than IT IS AWESOme yet there are no details. It just seems from the details I've gathered its going to be halo 1/2 all over again.
BTW the best fps multiplayer games are
Deathmatch q2, q3, UT2
Best team based : c&c renegade / team fortress /battlefield
Best tactical: counterstrike
Best rpg/fps: Deus Ex
Best Ctf: tribes 1, quake 2 ctf
Best coop single player : sorry but I had much more fun playing serious sam coop vs halo coop.
These are my opinions, but it just seems that the best fps comes from pc's. I think the first console fps I will really enjoy will be Unreal tournament 3 on ps3, because it is essntially the same as the pc counterpart.
finally someone who knows what he is saying unliked all the rampant xbots. I perfectly agree with your list.
PS. Kinldly gimme bubbles because fanboys on both side love giving negative feedback when I say the truth and they don't like it.
"Halo 3's single player campaign is disappointing."
"play through to the homage-y final level and sombre final credits in around six hours if you're Halo proficient. And I'm not going to get into the whole game length debate, but by anyone's standards, this is too damn short."
"Graphically, it's underwhelming."
"The story is an unfathomable mess."
This is just the ign review and they gave it 9.5....WTF
Look i understand about your bias towards a console but 1up does keep it fair...i dont think a multiplayer only game like warhawk with 5 maps should of got a 8.5 but thats my opinion. You want too talk about differences between scores for multiplatform games also you should check out the madden reviews...ps3 gets what xbox 360 got and its only plain obvious that the ps3 version sucks. so please save your conspiracy theory's for something relevant like maybe JFK.
Cause if it was from IGN you may need to learn how to comprehend what you read better. Here is the link to the review, I would suggest you read it slowly this time and if you have trouble with some of the words just ask your mom to help you out.
its kinda funny how people are downplaying just because the hype it got. There is always some guy who wants to be ''non'' hype and just looks down on it, but in fact is playing it like its the only game he cares about. If he didn't want to get in to the hype, then why revieuw it. pass it.. to people who want to play it.
Weary about the 1up review after the blowjob they've been given Halo 3 for a month. Halo 3 is definitely a good game though judging by the ign and gamespot reviews.
They need to get rid of Dan Shu...
It rapes my PC. Struggling to play it on medium settings at 1920x1200 w/2xAA Sad I had hoped my X2 4200+ and 8800GTS would fare better. Imagine if I can run it full.
The power domination game mode is nice, similar to BF2's conquest. Switching suit modes kicks serious arse too - hiding in a bush cloaked and ambushing people with a shottie 4tw
1UPYours podcast is going to be awesome.
The Sony fanbots have more excuses than a Washington spin doctor!!
Better luck in Christmas 2008, because 2007 is over. The PS3 is officially pwned.
No one cares here fanboy go to a COD4 PC thread.
★★★★ 1 DAY ★★★★
It looks good. I will not comment until Sep. 25 no matter what the reviews are.
Look at all the Sony fangirls. This is funny.
