September 23,2007 - Hype, excitement, brand merchandising, and millions of people waiting anxiously for their pre-orders. Countless others hoping the game fails. And through the forum battles of it all, Bungie promising they've made the best game they ever have. This is the Halo 3 phenomenon. And after milking the game for all it's worth, what were we left with? A messy narrative, mixed bag of graphics, mostly superb audio, and fully satisfying multiplayer. After you finally finish the fight, you'll feel two clicks shy of disappointment.
