Sometimes hype is a bad thing, sometimes it is a great thing. In the case of the blockbuster hit Halo 3 it was a very good thing. Screaming past all previous video game records Bungie's Halo 3 for the Xbox 360 had enormous copies of it preordered and one of the highest budgeted marketing campaigns ever seen for a video game. None of this marketing would mean anything if the game they were selling was no good, luckily Halo 3 made the publisher's job all but easy by being one hell of a game and easily the best end to one of the most successful gaming franchises ever created. Besides hype the other word that comes to mind when speaking about Halo 3 is epic, this game is epic in every sense of the word.
