I've played through the first 3 levels of Halo and I'd say the hype is was well deserved. If you get into the game with no bitter bias or impossible, sky-high expectations of the holy-grail of gaming you will have loads of fun.

You probably already seen this written a dozens of times: Graphically, the game is not next-gen. It's very good, but it's not Gears of War good and definitely not Crysis on highest-settings good, but there are some nice textures and bloom effects. It looks like a polished Halo 2, but it's also worthy of noting that the frame rate is silky smooth no matter many enemies there are and the loading in levels is seamless.

The gameplay is great though--classic Halo. But specifically, the enemy A.I. is terrific. I started on Heroic since I heard they really dumbed down the Easy and Normal modes. Heroic wastes no time kicking your ass. There are hordes of Brutes and they are merciless. Foot soldiers bear down on you with grenade launchers while snipers pick you off from hundreds of yards away. If you duck for cover, they send enemies to flank you. Start tossing frags and they set up shields. That's just in the first level. There's no tutorial and no "adjustment" period you're just thrown straight in. Realistic, since MC's not supposed be a rookie. Even if you die a couple of times in one spot it doesn't feel repetitive, there's usually multiple ways to engage a fight. Seeing what works and what doesn't is actually pretty fun.

I haven't even gotten around to multiplayer yet. It's been a while since I've played, so I'm using the campaign to brush up a bit before I throw myself into the lion's den of hardcore Halo killing machines, but I'm looking forward to it.

Madness? No. This is SPARTAN!!

End.

ok I will add this, anyone who has played, and taken on a scarab then said it wasn't good, should be shot! As for sheer FPS set piece entertainment fun, its just tooooo awesome. I can't remember last time I had that much fun

Maybe Halo is overrated as many people said but is a good FPS and probably the best multiplayer

However, I think people too often equate "over-rated" with "crappy". That's not what it means. It means that in comparison to most people's ridiculously high standards and expectations, it is not as great. I still believe it will be a great game, but I will reserve true judgment until I can actually afford an XBOX 360. Not all of us have that kind of money laying around, you know.

I finished but I don't really want to post anything, as i think its better to find out about it by playing. Even if u don't have a 360 or might not be able to play for some time, I still think its best finding out by playing.

but then if u really want to know, I guess u should maybe check out wiki

I agree, I didn't like that ending that much so I don't feel like spoiling it :P

I keep hearing from some people that the ending was just pathetic. I haven't played the game yet but is it really THAT bad?

I don't think it was that bad, wasn't that great either(it was ok/so-so/good to me). I never really finished Halo 1 campaign and never really touched Halo 2, but the campaign in Halo 3 was great in my opinion.

Is it prudent to bumping this thread with the upcoming fall release of Halo 3: ODST?
