Thegamereviews.com re-review Halo 3, three months after release and look at the campaign, the multiplayer, playlist additions, the new map pack and more. Check out the ultimate Halo 3 review!
my re-review is:
Before cod:4 came out = 8/10 fun game with flaws
After Cod:4 = 0/10, and "wtf is a halo? i dont have time for that"
I disagree. I did the same thing for a while but I'm starting to play a bit more Halo 3 again. The thing is that Halo 3 isn't radically different from Halo 2 and I played the crap out of that for over a year. I don't think that makes Call of Duty 4 more fun than Halo 3, it's just different. I think I enjoyed Halo 2 more than I enjoy CoD4 to be honest (multiplayer that is). I love CoD4's leveling system but I hate the lack of vehicles.
That said, the large Halo 3 maps need to be reworked in terms of vehicles, I'm sick of ghosts choppers and warthogs only, give me the Skorpion and Hornet! (and why is there only one banshee in Sandtrap?)
cod gets old fast. watch its just COD fever ull be coming back to halo after a while and BTW halo takes skill to play cod 1 hit ur killed and whoever shoots first.i played it at my friends house and hes good at videogames and we were tied even though he played it for 3-4 weeks while that was my first time playing
And I really can't understand the Call of Duty 4 accusation of "Whoever shoots first wins, regardless of skill or weapon." The weapon set is extremely varied, as is the accuracy, range, and recoil of each weapon.
You say "Halo takes skill" as if no other shooter franchise on the market requires skill to survive in, and this is a very shortsighted statement to make. As much as I love Halo's multiplayer mode (though part 3 has a particularly nasty programming error), it just doesn't compare to Call of Duty 4.
Did their score change from the first one to this one? Are they trying to tell us they were caught up in the hype and now they want a do over? In any case I like Shadowrun better than Halo3 or COD4. If you haven't tried it yet I'd recommend it. Once you get how the different races, weapons, magic, and tech work together, it's just way fun to try out all the combinations.
Original Score was 9.2 I think? I'm also a fan of shadowrun, but unfortunatly, most people don't even take a look at that...
Halo 3 and Cod4 are better though...
Guess Microsoft is sending out more 1000 dollar in Halo 3 crap to 'reviewers' to ensure 9+ review scores once again for this turd of a game.
Can't handle next gen resolutions - can only run in 640p instead of 720p
Last gen looking graphics engine with hideous art direction
No dedicated servers
Laggy P2P online play
Pathetic 16 players only per online game
Worst AI of any fps on the market
Short and boring single player campaign
My god does Bungie suck. Or maybe its the crappy Microsoft 360 developers tools. Or maybe its the wimpy 360 graphics hardware.
Probably some combination of all three...
I believe... I think... I feel that COD 4 is infinitely better than Halo 3. I cannot even go back to Halo 3 multiplayer after playing COD 4. That makes me sad. I even have the Halo 3 Xbox 360.
But do me a favor and get OUT OF HERE with your weak fanboy crap. Nobody cares that you want to rail on a decent game. The console is good. The game is good. If anything sucks... you do. Welcome to it.
Can't handle next gen resolutions - can only run in 640p instead of 720p --- That was done on purpose for the lighting effects. Besides, COD4 runs at a lower resolution.
Last gen looking graphics engine with hideous art direction --- B.S. The game is above average looking for the 360 console, and I dare you to prove me otherwise. ALl the reviews praise the art style.
No dedicated servers --- Who cares?
Laggy P2P online play --- Once in a blue moon, once again, who cares. get a better connection then.
Pathetic 16 players only per online game --- Retarded reason. 16 players works very well, there is no need for more, and certainly isn't pathetic.
Worst AI of any fps on the market --- No.
Short and boring single player campaign --- The only real fact.
Nice try retard, you got one out of 7 right.
I'm partial to Sony in this console war, but Halo 3 is frigging awesome. Anyone who says otherwise hasn't played it, or they suck horribly.
I don't play it all the time because its so addictive. If you wanna check my service record my tag is r4di8t0r on bungie.net
And what's the deal with saying Bungie sucks? thank god for good developers, thats all i gotta say.
You obviously have no idea what the hell you're talking about when it comes to AI.
PS3 Fanboy TROLL. How many time you have to be called out
Wimpy graphics hardware?
You clearly don't know anything. The 360's graphics card runs circles around PS3's. But then, that doesn't matter, I guess the PS3 doesn't need a decent graphics card to play Blu-ray movies.
How did COD4 get into this? I liked the Orgininal Halo I thought it and number 2 were one of the bests fps's. Personnaly Halo 3 didn't do much for me.
Since when do we "re-Review" games?
Since all the sony fanboys were complaing that reviewers just gave halo 3 good marks was to increase the hype for launch. So they pretty much did it to shut them up.
Dunno, now i guess.
Wait a second what was the original score they gave it? And btw what is "halo 3" anyway? If someone knows what this game is please tell me. It kinda sounds interesting. =P
Anyway W00T! Can't wait for Killzone 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Its a better experience for some, a worst for others. I prefer the level playing field of Halo. COD is lots of fun, but I resent the level up when I don't get it.
ah i can take that..
i prefer halo 3 to cod 4, mainly because of the fun factor - cod 4 has a more athmospheric single player game, but its so damn short..
Halo 3 multiplayer is just a superb laff to play. The pacing is perfect, the game modes nice and varied, the maps ranging from nasty claustrophic death-fests (foundry anyone) to huge vehichle based fun (sandtrap - by far my favorite) and there are always tonnes of people around to get a game with.
Fact is, when people b!tch about the graphics, they have a point, but in all honesty, i think all three versions of halo have had a distinctive art style. Its never been cutting edge, but its always been different to most other things around - if they suddenly switched, for instance, to using the Unreal engine, it would change the character of the game completely. Bungie did exactly what people hoped they would - concentrated on what made halo 2 so much fun. Its little touches like the handling of the warthog that put a smile on my face.
Its not the best game in the world, far from it. But its just plain fun, and in my book thats what counts.
COD4 OR RSV. WHICH DO YOU THINK IS THE BETTER MULTIPLAYER. I DONT THINK THERE IS A GAME OUT THERE THAT YOU CAN COMPARER ANY OF THE HALO EDITION TO BECAUSE ITS HALO. IF THERE IS TRULY A GAME YOU CAN COMPARE IT TO IT WOULD HAVE TO BE SIFI.
they need more maps, a better campaign, and stronger enemies in halo4
That would be pretty stupid if there was a Halo 4, because H3's slogan was "finish the fight". And you don't need a whole new game just to add maps. It's called map packs. Also, I guess the enemies on Legendary weren't strong enough for you, even though you die literally after two hits.
