Lost that spark,
This review is from: Halo 3 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Well, i think that like most people, i was expecting a lot from Halo 3. To get into the mood of it all, i went back to playing the original halo (as 2 was a bit pants).
The first impresions of the game, were one of brilliant graphics, however, as you get further into the game, you soon discover that the story is no where near as engaging as the first one...For all the better graphics etc etc, the heart and soul was simply not there. I played it to complete it, but failed to really enjoy it as i had done with the original. I went through this game on heroic, and really can't be bothered to go through it again, as it simply does not grab me as the original did, and that is a game i still go back to over and over again, as the story is so good.
All in all, it would be a rental game, and not a buying game for me. I have given my copy away, as i could really not be bothered with it. I played a few online games, however BF2 is still the best FPS online, as it was designed specifically for that in mind. Halo 3 seems to be trying to do both, and as the wise man said - 'man who chases after two rabbitts catches none'.
This will manage to pass the time away, but it feels more like a rainy day game when you want to do nothing, and then in the bottom of your drawer you see this game and think 'go on then'.
Overall a bit of a dissapointment with all the hype surrounding it, but it will pass a bit of time away.
