The Best Halo 3 Review

Post by PoPLiCiouS on Mon Oct 26, 2009 12:51 pm

WARNING: Review may contain biased opinions.

Pros:
-Very fun multiplayer
-Detailed and precise graphics (as long as you don't glitch it)
-Fun Campaign
-Interesting and tactical weapons,gadgets,vehicles,etc.
-Allows bragging rights
-One of the best game storylines
-Awesome unlockables

Cons:
-Sniper bullets you shoot may ricochet every where, and if unlucky, you may kill yourself (Check youtube Halo3 sniper suicides)
-Repetitive, like all FPS'
-OVER-competitive XBL
-Glitchy, if you don't follow what you are suppose to
-Not much freedom
-May give little kids nightmares.
-Laggy on XBL (You need good internet to keep up with those Americans.)

Synopsis
Halo 3 continues the epic adventures of Master Chief or Spartan 117 "John", after the extremely annoying cliffhanger of Halo 2. From there you come back to Earth, enter the portal in which you arrive at The Ark, fight to the death against the Convenent and eventually the Flooood...
Spoiler:
Then you watch Sgt. Johnson get killed by 343 Guilty Spark, rape Guilty Spark with a Spartan Laser, fight some more Flood, activate 'Halo's firing mechanism (The one you destroyed in Halo 1 is being rebuilt!) and then have another epic Warthog driving last mission where you drive and jump onto the ship waiting to take you back. The final cutscene is extremely annoying for Halo Fan Addicts, since your half of the ship doesn't make it back to Earth, so you're left drifting in space, and Master Chief says to Cortana, "Call me when you need me."
What's even worse is that, if you played ledgendary, you will see your part of the ship floating towards an Unidentified Planet.

Gameplay
A great new addition to Halo 3 is Forge. Here you can create your own custom made maps, or just randomly do things for fun. It's basically your Halo 3 Sandbox. The weapons in Halo 3 are also extremely good, as they all rotate in a very, very, VERY, sophisticated Scissors, paper, rock cycle, except it's 100 times more sophisticated. It depends on the situation you are in, the area around you, which weapons you have, and what you have avaliable around you. I won't go into each weapon, otherwise you would take atleast 1 hour to read this review. I'm also short on time. Vehicles in Halo 3 are very fun to play with. You have a variety of options of how you want to kill your foe. You of course have the option to splatter him, best done with the mongoose, shoot him, drive up close and kill him in a man to man fight, drive around and backstab him, or go Rambo with your Warthog mounted gun Smile One great addition is the new Hornet, the Human Air Support (finally...)
The improved Co-op feature new features Playable Co-op campaigns of up to 8 people via Xbox Live. Becareful though, it may cause tremendous amounts of 'lag'. Bungie have put alot of though into Halo 3's multiplayer. Xbox Live is more competitive than ever, and also funner than ever. Experience points, ranks, game types, they all add up to the full experience. Cool unlockables can also be found be beating certain feats, which unlock cool things you can use to customise your character on Halo 3 XBL.
Spoiler:
Unlock all achievements and get the EPIC KATANA! Even though you can equip it and it's on your back like a weapon, it's not a weapon. Also, unlock certain achievements and you unlock awesome new armour such as EVA, OST and some ninja one which i forgot the name of. If you are a Bungie employee, or really really lucky, you get Recon armour, Bungie only armour.

Graphics
You have to be kidding me. I thought the cutscenes weren't actualy gameplay graphics. I was so wrong. You can see the tiny details of Master Chief's MJOLNIR armour up to the very spec of dirt or water dripping down. The graphic are BEAST. But that is if you follow what the programmers wanted you to follow. If you go out of the map, for example, your screen will glitch and you may lag and die and something bad will happen and yeh. So unless you do something stupid, graphics are exceptional.

Sound
Bungie has created one of the best symphonys for Halo 3. The music matches the game mood, and just really makes you feel 'there', as if you have a connection with Master Chief. But then again, if you are a hardcore halo fan, you would have a connection.

Final Comments
To sum it all up, I RECOMMEND YOU GET HALO3 BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME! But then that's my opinion. And reviews are based on opinions. And every person has a different opinion. So don't post negative things if you disagree with my opinions, i already warned you anyway Wink

My Rating:10/10

Yes he is a ps3 gamer (technically) but he would much rather have a 360, and also considers himself a halo fanboy.

BTW good review even though i dont like halo.
