This is a hard purchase for me. I sporadically play Halo 3 every once in a while and many of my friends don't even have the Legendary map pack.

Halo 3: ODST will have all the Halo 3 maps ever made so perhaps its better to wait.

Edit: Also, I dislike the fact that only a small fraction of players play on the pay map packs. The vast majority of Halo 3 players get the maps for free (I almost never play on a Legendary map). Online ranking isn't enabled either :-(

Edit 2: Despite trying to convince myself otherwise I will probably splurge. If anyone has downloaded the maps, share your experiences with them. Worth it or no?

I like Halo as much as the next person, but it IS populated with 12 year olds who's parents probably don't even know their names. Of course they are going to wait for the maps to go free.

And Sandbox is incredible. I would have bought the pack just for that.

It's shocking that for an M rated game it appears the bulk of the online players are children. It was my experience playing Halo 3 online that finally made me question "Why am I paying for this crap," and canceling my subscription. I understand COD on the 360 has now suffered the same fate. Hopefully the Party Chat system has cut down some of the annoyances that plagued an otherwise great network.

And you can argue, "Why didn't you just mute them?" The answer is because having to mute 4-6 players at the beginning of every match is simply tiresome. Currently I have to mute 1 guy maybe every 4-6 matches on my platform of choice. Blissfully, every idiot wasn't just handed a mic at the start because I'm sure they're still out there.

Edit: I'm not ragging on XBL, I don't want to give that impression, but don't you wish in general there was some sort of minimum intelligence test they'd make you take before they give you a mic? Questions like "People are entitled to their own opinions: Yes or No, and why?" or "Trash talking can be fun if certain boundaries are respected. Explain those boundaries and why they are important to the online community" If they can't intelligently respond to either of those questions, or if the use the term "biznatches" at all, they don't get a mic and must report for mandatory sterilization. :)

so you think it is bad that MS supplies mics?

The same annoying people are on PS3, you just cant hear them.

iHEARTboobs3480d ago

It's a good and bad thing that MS hands out mics. Good because you get a mic, bad because of some of the idiots that use them. If you're on the PSN you'll have to buy your own mic which might deter someone from buying one if they just want to go online just to act like an idiot.

Halochampian3480d ago

That's like saying it is bad for MS to give games with it's system because then the idiots get to have the game instead of going out and buying it.

Lets take whatever MS does and make it seem bad. Give Mics in their system: bad. Dont put them in: bad.

iHEARTboobs3480d ago

What are you talking about? Who's trying to make everything MS does seem bad? It's great that they put the mics in but it does suck that you have to listen to all these damn people that have nothing to say but BS.

This is by far the greatest of the 3 map packs so go ahead and download ;)

or look at in this way if your still in doubt: you could easily be dead in millions of ways long before Halo ODST arrives. Life is too short to wait for things to happen - especially when we're are talking major games like Halo 3.

militant073480d ago

ill buy it now and download.

Firstkn1ghT3480d ago

Can their be any easier decision??? Seriously? I swear Bungie keeps on making the best and creative maps. Talk about hooking up a brother.
