Halo 3 lives up to his reputation,
This review is from: Halo 3: Limited Collector's Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
The third installment of this franchise lets the story come full circle, and manages to keep you on the edge of your seat in this superbly balanced game. Because of all the hype, I for long avoided the Halo series, but you can't judge something without trying. Now, I've finished all three Halo games, and I can say the series is awesome.
Halo 3 plays terrific, and you get to control even more vehicles now than before. The level design is straight forward, but this suits Halo just fine, without getting boring or feeling simple at all.
With this limited collector's edition comes an extra disc with "making of" stuff and so on, but the coolest thing which comes with it is the added hardcover booklet which covers every alien race and explains where they're from, their heritage/history etc.
In the end, if you like Halo, and never played the series, I would recommend to start with the first one, because they're all great.
