For people who want a review...,
This review is from: Halo 3 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)Right, as all of the reviews posted so far are either based on the BETA or just looney people giving it five stars for the hell of it, I have played the game and this is what I think...
First things first, its another Halo game and one that is exactly like the second version. Whats changed...well not much. Graphics are better and gameplay is fast and furious both in single and multiplayer.
So whats wrong with it? Well being a Gears of War fan, I miss the getting in and out of cover rather than just running around like a lemon with no cover. That is particularly annoying as holding the left analogue stick in makes you crouch...
Secondly the zoom...even on the basic guns you get no level of scope and is very annoying. Even with guns like the sniper,it doesn't 'feel' right.
My last grype is that dieing and killing doesn't feel like anything. I go back to Gears and playing it there is a sense of character and willingness to achieve...Halo there is nothing...
I feel that it is a disappointing end to a game saga which has embraced millions worldwide, but in the generation of games such as Gears, it is at a benchmark not high enough to compete.
