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)
