Halo 3 is the only choice for anyone but foaming at the mouth Xbox fans:

* Sub HD graphics - can only run at 640p and not 720p like real next gen games

* Crappy last gen looking graphics - oh look! Gaudy shiny coloured metal!

* Jaggies all over the place

* Huge framerate problems

* No dedicated servers

* Laggy P2P networking

* Can only manage 16 players per online game

* Only 6-7 hour single player

Remember when Halo 3 was supposed to be 1080p, have dedicated servers, large player counts, amazing next gen graphics...LOL!

They shouldn't of have stopped at game they should just made the ps3 the biggest disappointment of 2007.

"Like Call of Duty 4 being at 600p?"

"Oh, we forgot that one didn't we? Infact there are a hell of alot of PS3 and 360 games running at these low rez" http://pixelatedscraps.blog... Enjoy (stupid)" OUCH!

No comment, I will simply leave this to 360 users and the rest *Runs as quickly as possible*.

And yet, Halo 3 is better than any game on the PS3. Review scores and sales numbers back up my opinion. You're obviously trying to get down to 1 bubble as quickly as possible. Here, let me help you.

CeruleanSky3138d ago

LOL! Halo 3 'reviews'!

The game we've now learned that Microsoft handed out close to 1000 dollars worth of 'gifts' to reviewers...

So pathetic...

Mwaan3138d ago

Because I've spent more time playing that game than any other game this year. I have yet to find a game for my PS3 that could last more than a weekend. Seriously.

Bits-N-Kibbles3138d ago

and just go play COD4... for 360 OR PS3 OR PC....

ambientFLIER3138d ago

Lol, huge framerate problems? Only in your dreams...(and on the PS3)

I too vote for the PS3 as the biggest disappointment.

TheSadTruth3138d ago

I agree with Halo 3 for only 3 reasons

1) No custom game browser
2) Graphics that aren't revolutionary despite having UNLIMITED BUDGET
3) Horrible story
also: Horrible maps and small amount of maps...

Halo 3 could have been one of the greatest games ever made, but whether it was limited by DVD size, the Xbox 360 lacked the power necessary, or whether Bungie just didn't have the dedication necessary to create the game that could have been. Watching the documentaries it is revealed that they spent months building and play testing a single multiplayer map at a time.. and for what? The maps are not good... and it shouldn't take more than a couple days to develop a map... The story was atrocious and a better script could have been written by a 12 year old. Then they LIE to us and tell us they would have a custom games browser, which in my opinion would be the saving grace of the entire series but they decided to not include it for no good reason.

Fuc* you Bungie for only caring about money and being lazy as hell in creating one of the most mediocre first person shooters ever made.

Daxx3138d ago

There was never supposed to be a custom game browser! It's like there's this sect of people that think that Bungie promised to put a custom game browser in Halo 3 but Me and the rest of Halo community just considers your kind a bunch of loons with a delusion of something that was never promised.

TheSadTruth3138d ago

http://www.1up.com/do/newsS...

"1UP: One of the menus we saw while we were at Bungie said XBL Public, it was described to us as a "Matchmaking for Custom Games." What is XBL Public bringing to the matchmaking space? Is there an XBL Private, as well for Halo 3 online play?

CN: The basic idea with our online play still begins with our party system. You can invite your buddies to the party and it's easy stay together and play whatever you want in the game. If you want to keep it private you can set the privacy so that only friends can join, or so that an invite is required in order for any player to join the party. On the other hand you might need more players to play the type of game you want to set up and that's where XBL public comes in handy. When you need more people you can just open your party to the public. It's the perfect way to create a custom game and find people to join you. "

They have zero reason to "cut" this feature aside from being a bunch of overpaid lazy fatasses.

WilliamRLBaker3138d ago

halo 3 was never announced by bungie or microsoft to be in 1080p.
Halo 3 was never announced by bungie or microsoft to have dedicated servers.
Halo 3 was never announced by bungie or microsoft to have player limits beyond 16.

Genki3138d ago

A lesson in logic.

Popularity does NOT strengthen or back up an opinion. There's no amount of opinions that can override, nullify, or invalidate another. There's also no amount of supplementary opinions that can make yours any more valid or "correct" than those of another.

InMyOpinion3138d ago

Calling a title that sold over 5 million copies and got great reviews everywhere a disappointment is just ignorant. I'ts beyond me that lots of people actually have clicked the 'agree' button on his comment.

cod4 was a disappointment for me, the single player was super short, if it had a 10,to 12 hour campaign, i would of bought it, not to big on multiplayer on cod4, so that was a disappointment, another is that lair wasnt as great as it was hyped to be, to bad i havent tried it yet, ive actually heard some say it wasnt that bad, ill have to rent it sometime

gta_cb3138d ago

im sorry but i dont agree, i think COD4 is an AMAZING game! the story mode will only 5-7hours if you dont play it on veteran, it took me about 3 days from purchase on launch day to get the full 1000/1000 achievement points for it, then i got loads of messages saying wow i cant beat level blah blah blah, so yeah if it was a disappointment i recommend you play it on veteran :)

actas1233138d ago

All games that ignored or relatively ignored (COD4) single player campaigns are all disappointing. I mean, the single player game is the core of the whole thing. Developers should not concentrate on stupid multiplayer gaming over the single player gaming, that is just idiotic. I played online at games like COD4, TimeShift.. and found it plain boring. The only type of games multiplayer works is in sport games and that is it.

Bits-N-Kibbles3138d ago

aww.. no love for COD4... i guess if you're not into online or w/e it wasnt so great, but I think the game, even though short, was excellent! from the amazing intro, the crazy past sniper mission, the slow-mo ending? I can see why it ranked #1 this year in many people's opinions

AllroundGamer3138d ago

to me it was Mass Effect and Halo3, insanely overhyped games...

The Dude3138d ago

Mass Effect and Halo 3 are better than any ps3 game out there.

Bits-N-Kibbles3138d ago

anything about the PS3 man...

people are so defensive...

hadouken0073138d ago

damn this topic again? freakin garbage man.
