    Well I enjoyed the others just thought people would like to see the review.

    High scores so far all round. I've heard though from those playing it that the single-player mode is a bit weak, the multiplayer I expect should be the selling point for many.

    Do you have to have played all the other Halo games to be into this? Or would someone who's never played any Halo games be able to play it & fully know what's going on??

    I never played the 1st one, then when i played the 2nd i was rather confused about who the good guys were :whistling:

    So you reckon to get the most out of it, it helps to have played the others?

    So if the single player is weak, how come the scores don't reflect this? Why do they even bother actually putting a single player mode in? The story was pretty weak throughout the series in my opinion.

    I just don't understand. I've played the first one, thought it was alright. I didn't walk away thinking it was the best game ever made though.

    The multi-player is good. But I don't know if it's because I'm from a PC background, but there are greater online multi-players than Halo.

    Considering so many people have posted deals on this game, I'm surprised there are not more replies.

    Anyone justify this over hyped game?

    (Just so you know I own a 360, not a PS3. So no fanboyism from me.)

    Halo 1 i tried to play but gave up having had pro evo 4 and that taking up most of my time -- got halo 2 but thought the game was dreadful as i didnt have a clue what was going on half the time -- so it may sound stupid but imlooking forward to halo 3 mainly for multiplayer -- i want the game but its not a need for me whereas pes 2008 is

    Im a microsoft fanboy since 2002 but too coming from pc playing bkground there are much better FPS

    I thought Halo 1 had a decent single player campaign but Halo 2 was poor, coudnt really get into the multiplayer on that game and the single wasnt great even though it got mega reviews.

    I own all 3 consoles and have always owned them all of each generation from the Master system days back in the early 90s and am in no way a fanboy. If a games good I will buy it whatever system its on.

    But getting back to Halo 3 I think it will be ok but am looking forward to Call of Duty 3 more.

    You mean Call of duty 4 :-D online rules:santa:

    halo is good, Its no where near the best game ever made.
    Its strange how games get over-hyped (bioshock,halo) when there just average games

    Best games i've ever played are are Half life 1, Oblivion and Monkey island 1 and 2

    What people are saying is the story is weak compared to say Halo 1's story. Held up against most other FPS's its still strong, A lot of other online games can sprint but they'll all fall out the race in the long run. Halo 2 stills go till this day because jumping online in Halo is like going back to an old friend.

    With all the new features Halo 3 has more to offer than even the mighty Half Life...

    It's not really the kinda game you go back to after it's completed, is it?

    [SIZE=2]I'll wait 6 months until it's in the 2 for £20 in Gamestation or something...[/SIZE]

    sooo the money for my halo 3 pre-order has been taken from my account today so does that mean it will arrive tomorow...

    I got Stranglehold a day early when I preordered from Game so looks like you'll have it tomorrow

    The game is getting 9-10 scores everywhere. Im interested to see what Game Central will score it.

    Iv only played a bit of Halo 1 on the PC, and it was OK, but I didnt feel the urge to complete it, I also played Halo 2 on the PC as well but this time using the 360 controller - again I didnt really feel like playing any further.

    But I really want to play Halo 3, on an X360, but then again, is it worth playin online if im gonner get pwned all the time.

    halo3 convinced me to buy a 360 lol but i wounder if there is a allience between the elites and humans or is it just dat one avater elite?

    AAHHHH Its coming :w00t:

    Sadie,

    Quote from one of the reviews:

    "The storyline itself is very good, although it definitely helps to know what happened in the first two games. That said, the game’s very accessible and spells out what’s going on just enough to make it entertaining for even casual fans."
