"The Real HD ("Halo" Definition) Experience"
5 stars"

When I first purchased this game, I was a tiny bit disappointed with the graphics because graphically there wasn't much of an improvement over Halo 2… that is, until I decided to invest in a HDTV once I saw it being demo'd in HD. I personally feel that this game is an amazing “experience” rather than a play once and forget… I've been back for every achievement, and I'm not even an achievement hunter, I simply enjoyed the game so much that I had to find a reason to play it again and again and again!

A fitting end to what (in my mind at least) can only be referred to as the most epic trilogy in gaming history! Of course this game has it's “nay sayers” as all games do, but I can't help but believe that there is some jealousy going on there from other sectors of gaming, and of course simply to say that not everyone is an FPS fan.

This game pushed the boundaries of what we see in modern gaming, and frankly; it has it all: dry humour courtesy of Spartan 117 himself, beautiful vista's (no not windows, even if Bungie are owned by MS), amazing set pieces that link the levels perfectly, and as for the playability? My goodness, I still return to this game time and again, if only to destroy (or very very occasionally get destroyed by) one of my friends on a multi-player map, heck, just because I could; I completed H3 on Legendary, which believe me wasn't what you'd call a walk in the park!

What else can we say about a series of games that has spawned numerous spin offs? To date we have a series of books, a table top warfare game, a spin off game due very soon, and a film rumoured to be in the works (however everyone is keeping very very quiet about this!)

So, over 1 year after its original release in my mind, what we have here is still one of the greatest FPS games in the history of gaming! This my friends is one of the greats that will be remembered by history as such, much the same way people still rave about the Doom games, so to in ten years time will people still speak of the day Halo 3 graced us with its presence, raising the bar for every other developer out there!

If you love FPS, if you know the Master Chief, if you have an Xbox 360 and you don't own this, you simply must add it to your collection, there is nothing else to say; this is THE must have game!

"Must have"
4 stars"

Halo 3 is the must have game on the Xbox 360. The campaign is great fun and now you can play coop with up to 4 players on either Xbox live, local or lan. The multiplayer is the reason to buy Halo 3. The matchmaking is smooth and quick to find games, the custom games lets you play with friends on Xbox live and you can always play local with a few friends, or lots of friends with a lan. All in all Halo 3 is the multiplayer game that will last and will never get old.

"Great Fun"
4 stars"

Collecting Skulls, whether its online or off, you always have fun. Great for the party with friends, just to go old school. Better than Reach in ways. BUY IT!

"Simply the Best"
5 stars"

Halo 3 is absolutely the best game ever!!!!!!!!! the weapons are sick as and the graphics are absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!! I love all the levels there is not one single level that i don't like. I bought this game a week ago and have been playing it pretty much every day of the week!!!!!! Halo 2 was a major hit and i absolutely couldn't wait until Halo 3 came out. At the time i didn't even have an Xbox 360 yet but i bought one just because Halo 3 came out!! I was previously going to buy the PS3 but when i saw all of the previews of Halo 3 i thought stuff the PS3 i'm gonna get the 360 for HALO 3.

All of u Halo fans if u don't hav Halo3 yet buy it and if u don't hav an Xbox 360 yet get one!!! beleive me your gonna want to!!!!!!!!!!! ROCK ON HALO 3!!!!!!!!

"Lives up to All the Hype!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have completed the epic story of Halo 3 and this game is amazing! The graphics are excellent, with awesome looking real-time reflections. The levels are more epic and larger and each level seamlessly ties into the next and the story flows evenly. This is the best out of the trilogy, the game plays like a movie! There are a whole bunch of new weapons and special equipment like bubble shields. There are many memorable battles as well, such as the one where you fight a Scarab, which I must add, is awesome to watch when you destroy it as the explosions are so cool looking. The environments in each level never get boring, the battles keep you anticipating for the next one and as the game plays out, you wonder what will happen next. Everything that made the Halo series great is here, with lots more action, awesome explosions, battles and weapons, it is immensely fun and well worth the purchase! Plus you get an excellent Halo beanie, a poster with Arbiter and Master Chief and a bonus Xbox Live Gold trial. Negatives? The campaign is considered short by many, but that isn't a bad thing, it plays out like an enjoyable action movie that you can easily pick up and play again and again. No boring Halo 2 alien levels, or long Library levels. The story is what makes this game enjoyable, and of course, the heroic actions of the awesome Master Chief. If you purchase this game, you won't regret it! Certainly more fun than the depressingly dark shooter Gears of War or the underwater themed city of Bioshock. Halo has an original world and characters that will keep you playing this game for many years to come. Besides, you have to admit that Master Chief is a pretty awesome character. ;)

Description

The Covenant control Earth. The Flood is unleashed. With the fate of the galaxy hanging in the balance, Master Chief is the only one that can save the human race. The entire epic story arc has led up to this moment. Master Chief, the last of his kind, is a warrior born for combat, bred for war… and humanity’s on­ly hope.

After stowing away on a Forerunner spacecraft, Master Chief, a genetically altered, cybernetically enhanced Spartan supersoldier, must race back to Earth to stop the Covenant once and for all and save mankind. With his artificial intelligence companion Cortana in the grip of the Flood’s intelligent embodiment, Gravemind, Master Chief and his allies are vastly outnumbered. But the stakes are too high to do anything but face them head on.

In “Halo 3,” the third installment of this legendary epic, the war has come to a climax – the Flood continue to grow in numbers and strength, the armies of Earth are scattered and decimated, and the Covenant threaten to activate the Halo, effectively destroying all life in the galaxy. Master Chief’s mission: to stop the Covenant, destroy the impending Flood threat and ultimately save mankind.
