Yawn. Halo's great if its how you entered into the FPS genre. But the better FPSers stick with a mouse + keyboard.

Halo 3 will be nothing compared to Unreal Tournament 3 or Crysis...

The 360 already has it's definitive shooter, Gears of War. The PC will get it with UT3 and Crysis. Halo 3 is nothing but 'last straws' for Microsoft before they ditch Bungie.

The only good UT was the first one, after that they were all just copies of Tribes 2 with UT weapons.

1) On the original Halo, the Hard mode on the XBox was equivalent to the Easy mode on the PC.

2) On Halo 2, XBox/controller users get auto-aim, mouse/keyboard users do not.

I also got to the end of Halo 2 and thought "Nice, end of the first chapter, i'll go and get some food and carry on" but no, that was the whole game.

IMO Gears of War is a terrible game. Lag online is horrendous. The host always has an advantage. Most games degenerate into a shot-gun fight in the center of the map. You also have to pay money to download the latest map which means I won't be playing this game online ever again Evil or Very Mad

I played the Halo 3 Beta for a few hours and I thought it was awesome. It looks like I will finally be able to justify my purchase of an Xbox 360.

Incorrect, the enemy AI was not changed at all with the port. It probably just felt harder because the rest of the port was so laughably bad.

Incorrect again. The PC version gets a considerable amount of autoaim, left in intentionally because of the god-awful netcode, not that it helps; you need to aim about 30 feet behind them, again, due to the god-awful netcode. In fact, its just best to ignore the fact Halo 1 PC exists, due to the god-awful netcode.

That the halo 3 multiplayer craps on GoW's from a great height? I think the fact that for just about the first time ever, MS content servers were crashed by the amount of downloads for the beta software is testament to its popularity as a game (Over 300TB distributed in less than 24 hours). Games don't get popular for no reason, and i find most of the people who hate halo, either haven't played it for more than 20 minutes, or are just jumping on the "I hate halo!!" bandwagon 'cos its the cool thing to do right now.

I played Halo 2 online solid for like 6 months and after a while I realised that ghey power weapons and 12 year olds who think its hilarious to call everyone a jew on comms doesn't make such a fun game.

Plus the single player mode was too short and the plot crap.

So I'll probably pass on Halo 3 unless it really does improve on Halo 2 but I doubt it...

Nah. Making DVDs is easy. You need more production; you retool other DVD production lines to stamp what you want. But ramping up production on a game console with proprietary components like the Wii ... difficult. I don't know what made you think you can compare a product based on the DVD medium with game consoles.

The Halo series is terrible to most who've played other FPSs competitively, though most of it's because of the gamepad's limitations in really unlocking human potential. But it's also because of the low-barrier to entry to the game and thus, the Halo community is most probably the most immature subset of FPS community, which traditionally has the most mature and skilled gamers.

I agree, Halo 2 was, well, quite crap.
But, having played the beta, the gameplay is much better. Plus, I actually prefer the starting rifle to half the guns in the game, which means I'm not bothered with having to find a decent weapon when I spawn. Also, the previously nerfed Carbine is good now, I prefer it over the BR for ranged combat.
Still can't do anything about the community, but that's what mute is for.
EDIT: There's also a noticable difference between a rookie and a vet. Now it's mostly the player who decides a fight, not the weapons.

Halo rocked my socks off.
Halo 2 SP sucked badly.
Halo 2 MP I owned in, pistol was sub maching gun combo ftw, still prefer Halo MP > Halo 2 MP.
Halo 3 I will have to try out somehow (don't own an xbox 360).

I auctually find UT2004 DM Team DM and CTF quite enjoyable, nice fast paced game where brains and strategy matter. However the Assault (modern UT) and onslaught modes are just attempts at getting little kids to play the game and therefore suck.

As far as halo is concerned, I can't stand the game's. Between the auto aim, everyones obsession with the vehicles, and the movement that is so slow it feels like the game is played underwater, I just can't bring myself to play it. Basically Eve is to WOW as UT is to Halo.

And oh yeah, they're called First person Shooters, not Third person drivers. Vehicles should be kept out of FPS games.

Halo and Halo 2 were excellent because of co-op campaign. Driving a circle in a hog while your mate caps Covies who´s been messing in your hood.

Oh and smiting flood with swords which have run out of juice (they look like brass knuckles).

/me has very private flashback while singing "Gotta catch em´ all...".

ok lets face the face the facts the reason that Halo has such large amount of players who are stupid and you have to use the mute on is because there are so many people playing the game. its like gears so many people play it its not the games fault that stupid 8 year old british kids run around being anoying. but thats what the boot button is for.

but realy microsoft's servers crashed. think about for a moment. so many people love the game. weather or not people like the game later they like it now. and tha name Halo has a change of going down in FPS history. if it hasent yet.Laughing
