1up: Halo 3 is Finally Here, So Whaddya Think? - Update

1up ask what you think of Halo 3:

"Bungie has finally shipped the third installment in their Halo trilogy.We scored it a 10. Microsoft predicts this to be the biggest launch in videogame history. Now, Halo 3 is in your hands and given that a great number of you (including many in the office -- check our weary eyes) stayed up late into the night online and off to help Master Chief finish the fight once and for all. So, what do you think? We'll update this post later in the day with some of your feedback (from here and the boards), so get crackin'!"

HEY WHATSUP EVERYBODY, AFTER PLAYING HALO3 LAST NIGHT FOR 6 HOURS I HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT ITS BASICLY THE SAME GAME AS HALO2 WITH UPDATED GRAPHICS, THE CAMPAIGN IS BETTER CAUSE BETTER GRAPHICS, IM SORRY BUT NIT DOES NOT DESERVE ALL THESE PERFECT SCORES, ITS ABOUT A 8.5 IF YOU ASK ME. SORRY BUNGIE YOU RECYCLED ALMOST EVERY LEVEL FROM HALO2 AND POLISHED THEM UP, NOTE TO MS GOOD TEXTURES ARE NOT JUST TEXTURES THAT ARE GLOSSY. ITS GOOD BUT NOT ALL GREAT LIKE WE WANTED IT TO BE.

I thought the graphics were good, but that's not the point.
Graphics are just one of 5 or 6 parts of a game. How come no one is commenting on one of the best soundtracks ever heard on a video game? is it because they're all complaining about the graphics so loudly that they can't hear? How about a multiplayer with about as much improvement Halo 2 had from Halo 1? How about an interactive environment with the coolest vehicles for any FPS, new weapons while still keeping our favorites, and new levels that are gorgeous.
The story plot calls for MC to visit places that are similar to the original Halo and Halo 2. The plot also calls for him to fight similar enemies (although there are new brutes, and lots of new flood).
Bungie did a great job with Halo 2, they made Halo 3 look and work the way they wanted to, it makes sense that it looks similar to Halo 2.
Anyone who complains about the way it looks should think about why it looks that way. Anyone who complains about where they're fighting should think about why they're fighting there. The campaign is story driven. If they tossed you into an underground city and then to a moon base then it wouldn't make sense.

Here is a guy that has count'em THREE (3) posts on N4G. Here's the catch, all three posts are about Halo3 not being that great. Here is another catch. ALL THREE ARE IN CAPS. And the last catch, all three are the exact same post put in different halo threads on this site. Regardless to what the thread is about the same monotoned, all caps comment is used by this guy.

He also only complains about the graphics. Here is what I think, this is another fanboy tactic used by someone on this site with two accounts. So sad.

Hands down. No question. Played all day yesterday and can't wait to get back into the fight!

Honestly, i bet LUKE SMITH reviewed this game as a 10/10 ...that sony biased fat pylon. Looks like a guy that just sits infront of EB games all day. And as for halo 3...killzone 2 jsut might steal halo's thunder.

Ignorant Fanboy3593d ago

Nobody knows what killzone is.

Nobody has heard of Killzone.

Everyone knows what Halo is.

Everyone has heard of Halo.

While Killzone might be a good game, It will do nothing compared to Halo, besides it doesnt even come out for like another year! Im playing Halo right now!

Yeah I only played the first 2 levels on legendary and played some multiplayer...a perfect score is bs and I'd still give GOTY to Bioshock over this because at least they tried to change how to play an FPS as well as the amazing graphics. The armor on the high-ranked covenant looks pretty cool though I'll have to admit and how they command the lower ranked soldiers is sweet. The last FPS to really make me think "omg this fps is amazing" is Half-Life 2. Other than that, all the other FPSs were amazing for a short second and then I got used to it and bored. But still, you can't really be mad at Bungie since they stuck with the formula that worked for them all these years. You can't expect them to change the game up too much without loyal fans being pissed off, so I'm not mad at them...but a perfect score? Pffft...

edit: the fanboyism here is horrible

To me, I think they left the story still open. To the people that already beat the game, you will probably understand what I'm saying. Overall, I give this game a 9.5/10 very great game.
