Review: Halo 3

28 09 2007


Believe it or not, this is the second Halo 3 review I’ve had to write today (Thank YOU Gateway copyright forms). So, instead of going into too much depth, I figure I’d just summarize it for you all. And then I can get back to owning you all in online matchmaking! Hoo-rah!

Halo 3, is of course, the final game in Bungie Studios’ Halo Trilogy. If you’ve never heard of this series, you must’ve had your head up your ass for the past 6 years. The game works quite well to tie up the story of the trilogy. I do have a few complaints, however. The story of the Arbiter and his Elites does get pushed to the side somewhat, not being in the same depth as it was in the previous game. This games is about Master Chief, and as such, mainly stays focused on the human affairs. I won’t say any more about the story, except KEEP WATCHING AFTER THE CREDITS YOU BASTARDS! I AM TIRED OF HAVING TO PROVE YOU ALL WRONG. Ahem………. Sorry about that.

 Halo 3 isn’t the prettiest game on the 360, but I’ll be damned if it isn’t polished. It runs at a very smooth 60 FPS, even with hordes of Covenant and Flood storming at you with explosions flying about. The water effects and textures are also very well rendered. The sound is also up to normal Halo standards, being AWESOME. By far, IMO, Halo has the BEST soundtrack of any game series out there, with maybe Final Fantasy being a close contender. The sound effects also work very well.

The game plays as you would expect Halo would, with additions such as new vehicles, and of course, new weapons. The best additions by far, however, are the Forge and Theatre modes. Making Machinima for a game never has been/will be any easier than in Halo 3.

All in all, I wish I would elaborate more, but you know what? Im gonna go back and play some more now. So watch your back, cuz I’m coming for you.
