    Default Halo to Halo 3 - Really that good?

    Well Halo 3 went on sale this week and it's sold great. But I don't understand what's so exciting about a new Halo game. It's just another FPS to add to the other heaps FPS. You know what it's going to be.

    I don't hate Halo but I'm just wondering why it's so popular?

    Please enlighten me.

    I guess it's the gameplay
    The story and the action
    I loved the co op and multiplayer aspect also

    People say the same thing about Legend Of Zelda
    But i know you see the magic

    Halo is overrated. What has it added to the world of FPSs?

    Halo is way Overrated. I personally prefer playing RE4 or Doom, or any other FPS.

    Likewise. I never saw what the big deal about it was. Not bashing the game or anything, but like previously said, it's just another FPS with the same old features to add to the collection.

    GTA and Saints Row are better than this game. Not the same genre but Rag-Doll effects and gameplay in both (Rag-Doll better in SR) are much, better than Halo (1, 2, 3)

    Halo 1: Awesome, a real fresh look for sci-fi shooters.
    Halo 2: Story wasn't as good, but now you can dual wield.
    Halo 3: The climatic storyline, the return of the dual-wield, and weapons holstered when not in use.

    The dual wielding was crap in Halo 2.

    I wonder who made that Post Slick????

    Actually Halo 2's dual wielding was one of the first games I've seen dual wielding done right: independent triggers. I never really liked the fact that if you could dual wield, you were still assigned one button and the guns fire alternatively.

    But it wasn't the first to have independently triggered dual wielding, a Half-Life mod called The Specialists had independently triggered dual wielding before Halo 2.
    I must agree with you 100%
    Halo 2 & 3 had amazing Duel Wielding

    What? You think this is just another fps. Sorry, I have to be another halo fanboy. The genre doesn't suck and in my opinion and the halo series is awesome.

    In my opinion it was short but sweet. But I hate the second to last level with a passion. All of the flood are so freaking annoying!!!

    I'd say it's because there are alot of Halo fans out there waiting for it and then they got their wish

    The reason I like Halo is due to the sheer awsome characters and not to mention Sergeant Johnson who inspired me to get into the series. The theme has got to do with aliens, space, and mystery, now that's something I'm totally fond of. And then the game has some great quotes which make me smile. I just can't play other first person shooters cause I don't get the same feeling when I'm playing them.

    I have to say, Halo has possibly one of the worst, most cliche plots ever, and even though my expectations were low for the plot of Halo 3, it sucked more than I ever imagined. What really makes me mad, though, is that when I first found out about Halo, I thought it was a sci-fi about humans that didn't seem like they were ripped from Star Trek, didn't have lasers, but had enough brains and good enough tech to survive. When I learned that this couldn't be any further from the truth (aka Halo was more of the same but somehow worse), I really began to hate Halo. Every human sucked more than a Stormtrooper from Star Wars, and in the books the Spartans couldn't even really save the day. Also, in H2 onwards, the mysterious, alien feel of the plasma weaponry felt replaced by a plastic, flashlight feel.

    Regarding gameplay, Latios pretty much covered everything, and in H3 the brutes felt weak and lame to fight. Because they didn't have regenerating shields, you could fight them at a less intense pace. If they were like the fearsome, crazy shoulder-ramming brutes from H2 they might have been cool, but the second they were just brown elites all coolness they had died out.
    Nurse Joy: We hope to see you again! (Translation: We hope you get the crap beaten out of you so that you require medical treatment again!) Not so nice in a different light, is it?

    I don't use "uber" Pokemon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature. (Started by Tyranitar)
