Split-screen.com takes the liberty to change almost all the mechanics that were subliminally present in the game but were never implemented in the final structure.
You can't fix Halo anymore.Its like an oil fire.You just got to let it burn and die out.
anyways this article just sounds like a jealous rant from yet another ignorant ps3 fanboy.
lord yoshida me and you share the same opinion,halo cant be fixed;ts too broken
Nor can you teach a failed dog new tricks
well lets see they need to fix the resolution and not set it to 564p and the game needs more working on it and not get overhyped and i hope masterchief returns
Halo needs better graphics (i.e. so that it can actually be called next-gen) and a better story (cos Halo 3's story was not great), and it has to have Masterchief in it IMO. Without Masterchief it's like having an MGS without Solid Snake (like MGS2), pointless
We love Halo just the way it is! Leave it alone. That formula has worked great so far making Halo one of (if not the most) beloved franchises. And of course there will always be the haters, but they are just that....HATERS!!! You know your doing something great when you can have so much haters. (Hi gaffyh!) ;)
For this they would need: *Of course as said above, better graphics. *Gameplay that switches between FPS and RTS. *Multiple halo rings and a flexible story so you could choose to which you would want to destroy first. *An insertion strategy where you'd have multiple points to choose from whence you land on the rings. *5 player online co-op in singleplayer mode where Masterchief is the commander that can switch between RTS and FPS view and 4 other soldiers that are equally trained and armored as masterchief. *Deathmatch and team deathmatch plus all other modes with up to 32 players. *A map mix with everything between deep amazon jungle maps to sand blowing desert maps. *New veichles and smarter AI *In RTS mode you should be able to call in supplies and veichles to your liking much like in mercenaries 2 but with an overview like in Halo wars. Overall make halo more appealing to the grown up crowd with strategy and complexity...
should expand on his abilities bit...
I'd like to see some actual bosses. In that respect Halo 3 disappointed me utterly. I mean... the last boss we got, compared to what we COULD have had. Gravemind anyone? Bungie made vehicles work on consoles, and added the amazing video recording feature. But it can't give its epic trilogy an epic finale? Disappointing for me. This is one reason why I think Halo, while great and definitely an important title for console FPS growth, is not the "perfect" or "greatest" FPS ever.
Master chief should not die.
When you beat Legendary in Halo 3,I wonder what planet the Chief came to.I think its Onyx but i'm not sure
I have yet to understand why so many people think that the Halo series is so great. I have played through all three of the games, and I do have to agree that the original Halo provided the best single player campaign by a long shot. The only real thing that I can say for Halo 2 & 3 is that Bungie has the best online matchmaking system in the industry. Other than that, I can't think of anything else to say... The single player campaigns just didn't stack up to the original, and I honestly have more fun with the Call of Duty games online than I do with Halo 2 & 3. I agree with the author of the article that Halo 3 should have been rated around a seven, no higher than an 8.
I want a new story, new characters, new gameplay, new location... New everything! The story of Halo takes place in space. I want it to not be what we as humans expect. But something that we don't expect. Master Chief is not that important! If anything, I would like to have Master chief playing alongside me during the game!
halo doesn't just need better graphics... it needs a new lease of life ( or an old one should i say ) i just want the games to play like the first one did. it almost seems like too much to ask for. but that's what i want. Once the cov split that was it... there was not really any way to save the story. It was fighting the elites that made halo one so cool. fighting the brutes... like arm wrestling a Jimp, sorry they just didn't cut it. the story.... halo 1 the cov thought the ring was a weapon, halo 2 the ring was a religious artifact. The story just went downhill from there. Gameplay; uuummmmm where to start. all i will say is; i liked the sound of the weapons in a halo 1, i liked the feel of the weapons in halo 1.. i liked the damage of the weapons in halo 1. the weapons didn't feel like they had been thrown in to balance the gameplay. They were just weapons with in the halo universe. it was balanced because on each map everyone could access the same weapons, so it was just a case of who could use them best. people cried about the magnum, i don't really understand why. if i remember right, there were always two on a map. one at your end, one at the other end. so you could always get one.. the real problem was just some people could not aim as good and if you were a bad aim, you were screwed ! The nades... come on, who didn't enjoy using those babies ? what was even more fun, throwing one nade and setting off a whole bunch on the floor then killing yourself in the process. I still have not played any game that i enjoyed using them in as much as i enjoyed them in halo CE.... halo 2, 3.. it felt like throwing party crackers. i could go on an on... but i have come to the conclusion i will never get that feeling back. halo 1 is a one off, whats even stranger about it all is it was rushed. how did they rush halo 1 and make a great game. i know it was in dev for a longtime, then MS bought bungie and from what i understand they had to re-do it again for the xbox and changed a lot of things. maybe i am wrong. anyway, the only way i would be happy is if I was making the next halo... but much as i would like, i am not a dev and i don't work for bungie. oh, and before i get creamed by the halo fans. i love halo i still think halo 2 and 3 are great games but its the multiplayer that really makes them stand out. they are much better then most shooters, but i just think the first was the benchmark for the single player experience. for me Halo CE is still my all time no 1 fps shooter. 2 and 3 didn't meet up to it, let alone surpass it. if you disagree it would be nice to hear why. i am a halo fan, not a hater !
your retarded, the Halos were always thought to be the way to paradise for the cov, its only halfway through Halo 1 that you find out its a weapon to blow up the flood. GG on not playing the game
lol.. well that was a nice way to start off. At what point in halo 1 does it say they are a way to paradise. As far as halo 1 is concerned the ring was a weapon " with deep religious significance " but it was a weapon. at no point is it even hinted that its a way to paradise in the first. and thats my point. it was everything that came after Halo CE that changed. its only in halo 2 that the story goes off on the " way to paradise " theme. i have not played the games have i.... and you would know how ? my tag is on my profile. you are free to add me and we can play halo 2 or 3 if you like. i still have all three games and out of all of them i have played halo ce the most.
halo needs a new direction away from the cutsey and more gritty and realistic also where are people getting that hes an machine he has only a standard inferface as all officers do he has a modified nueral net done through chemistry and ceramic plating on his bones in effect spartans = warhammer space marines halo needs a differnt style not revolving around a super soldier maybe a spartan 3 there barly enhanced humans and lack the armor and shields that would bebetter in my opinipon
When I clicked the article I was really hoping for a detailed analysis of how the game could be changed at an engineers level. Unfortunatley all I got was "In short Master Chief needs to turn to the dark side to give his character an overhaul and keep the content flowing." and "Injuries need to be placed in a much realistic context, the armor must show signs of damage after a war". No only is it crap grammar, but crap logic too. Forgive Bungie if they read this article and laugh at how rediculous the demands are. The writer wants a new game, not a new Halo.
@ ^^^^^ I could not have said it better... -On topic Where are the Halo fans in this thread, because all i see are the haters. I love Halo the way it is, it's what makes it Halo... If the game is so bad, why is it that still been played by hundreds of thousand gamers around the world... Please haters go away...
It needs to stop being gay. :-)
I HATE GALO.
Halo needs less haters.
I agree. No game should have "haters" anyways. If you don't like it, then don't like it. No need to HATE on it. No GAME should be hated on. HOWEVER, I think if less people treated Halo as the second coming of Jesus though, there would be less vocal "haters" as well though. Halo CE was a great game that did a lot for FPSs on consoles, no doubt. But the sequels made some major missteps, and it seems like anyone that brings those up (even in a logical, constructive manner) is instantly labeled a hater unfairly. Still, Halo probably has the third best theme song ever, right behind Zelda and MGS.
I stop reading at; "The game was a mere average and should have scored no more than a 7", this guy is a Halo hater, period. Halo 3 as a package is a 9+. This game is just plain fun and that what games are suppose to be nothing more.
Halo is the series that revolutionized FPS genre in consoles, enough said. That alone makes it a 10+
I thought the graphics were fine but the story needed work. The enviroments didn't have the scale of the original Halo either and i missed nicking the banshees ( yeah i know you can still do it but not to the same extent as Halo1). Single player campagin seemed to have been overlooked in leiu of multiplayer. I still think Halo1 is the best fps( and ive played the majority of em) made and i much prefer it over 1 and 2. The sequels seem to be all about the multiplayer.
Is this Article serious? How has no one made a comment about it yet? Bungie isn't creating Halo 4! Halo 4, won't be anything like halo 3, you can't take the creators of one of the most popular series, and give it to another company! Anyone play goldeneye for N64? after that, There were a lot of game companies making bond games under EA that rode on the success trail of Rare after GoldenEye, and they have all been really bad,, and average at best. Plain and simple, Halo is dead, find a new favorite.
Halo 3 got 9's because of the whole package together. Without forge, video recording feature, and the best matchmaking system it would have gotten 7's .
