About this product
|After two chartbusting efforts on Xbox, the enigmatic, genetically enhanced Spartan soldier known as Master Chief makes his highly anticipated Xbox 360 debut in Halo 3. The sci-fi shooter picks up where Halo 2 abruptly left off: The Covenant is continuing its plans to activate the Halo super-weapon and obliterate the galaxy; Earth is in utter disarray with only a few remnants of its armies intact; and the Flood grows stronger and more aggressive with each passing day. Your mission, as Master Chief, is to repel the Flood's advances, save Earth, and stop the Covenant -- no matter what the cost.|
Halo 3 offers a solo campaign, cooperative play, and multiplayer action via Xbox Live, system link, or split-screen display. The cinematic storyline introduces new characters, weapons, and mission objectives, with the enemy AI offering distinct fighting styles, tactics, and even personalities, all while trying to rip your armored space suit into pieces. Familiar weapons such as the Needler have been upgraded and are joined with all-new armaments, including massive support weapons (such as a missile pod or turret) that switch the default perspective to a third-person view, chargeable lasers, and a gun that shoots out metal spikes. Players can also protect themselves with bubble shields, reach high places with portable gravity lifts, disrupt motion tracking with radar jammers, and more.
Vehicles are also a big part of the action, with redesigned favorites and new class types entering the fray, such as the speedy but fragile Mongoose. The matchmaking service introduced in Halo 2 will once again bring similarly skilled Xbox Live players together, albeit with more customization options and a new streamlined interface. Players can still enter multiple lobbies, veto certain maps or game types, and so forth, but now they can instantly form parties with people they've just met for future matches, watch videos of completed games to learn techniques of the top Halo players, view detailed stats and rankings updated in real-time, and squelch certain voices from being broadcast to their headsets.

Highly awaited Game-Will Not Disappoint
As most people say, Halo is what makes XBOX Popular. I disagree with this statement, but thats a whole different topic. Halo 3 is the most anticipated game for the XBOX 360. Many people held off to get an XBOX 360 until this November to get their hands on a copy of Halo 3. With this in mind, there is HUGE pressure on these authors, game designers, game engineers, managers, and Microsoft. With all this pressure on them to build not just a good game but a 'Freakingly Amazing FPS Game that will blow your socks off game of the year' these individuals are going to make the best freaking game you've ever played. Plus it has the Halo name on it too, so you know somewhat to expect, but there are going to be many additional features that is going to be put into this game.
Lets remember back to before Halo 2 was going to be released, this game was one of the best selling games to date. On its launch it sold MILLIONS of copies. Thats how big the anticipation was, and the only real difference between Halo 1 and Halo 2 is: new guns, new levels, new campaign, and XBOX Live. Thats 4 things, thats nothing. When making Halo 2 they knew that they would be making not just Halo 2, but they could forsee the launch of Halo 3 too. With this in mind, they didn't go overboard on making Halo 2, they only added in the necessary features to make Halo 2 a success, and have customers coming back to buy Halo 3, three years later.
Halo 2 was mainly used to get XBOX Live really going smoothly. Honestly, how many people actually played XBOX on the internet before Halo 2 came out? Not many people, there are tons more people playing xbox live now and thats soley because of Halo 2.
Additionally since Halo 3 is going to be the final chapter in the Halo trilligy its going to finish strong, and its going to finish on a great note. I guarantee that this game will be the Game of the Year, and people will be playing this game long after the life of the XBOX 360.
Only people who have never experienced the action of Halo say this guide is not helpful.Read full review

Amazing game with a replay value.
Halo 3 is amazing game for that time it came out the graphics were great! The gameplay is Halo style, you go places shoot the bad guys and have only two weapons and grenades to use. I love doing the missions on free for all mode, it gives you points for each enemy you kill, also there are achievements to be proud of. It is not a very long game to play but has replay value as you can choose the difficulty of the game and number of skulls to use which make the game more challenging. It has multiplayer and I highly recommend this game, as I played it lots of times and still randomly do. And best part, you can buy it used for Xbox 360 real cheap!

Halo 3 - The game every XBOX 360 owner should have
Graphics: Breathtaking 9.5/10
The graphics great. The rumors of an upgraded Halo 2, or Halo 2 like graphics is not true. With smooth framerates and stunning effects, you will be taken aback. Take some time to watch the backgrounds and environments and the detail of that went into these levels. This is after you clear everything that moves.
Sound: Amazing – 10/10
The sounds, music, effects, and voices take you immediately into the game. Surround sound is a must so you can hear the shots, shouts, and footsteps of the your opponents in this game. The score for this game heightens you senses, and truly brings you into the game.
Gameplay: Spectacular – 9/10
Smooth animations, large levels, smart enemies and A.I., big battles, and 4-player co-op = awesome. Without giving anything away, this is some great storytelling that gives way to some genuine wow moments.
Replay Value – Amazing 10/10
Multiplayer. That is all I have to say. This game has high replay value. Choose which way you would like to play online, but with the achievements, future downloadable content, 4-player co-op, and with over 1 million copies pre-ordered, and 4 million copies on retailers shelves in the first week, there will always be someone to play with.
Overall – Perfect 9.5/10
I am a fan of First-Person-Shooters (FPS) and all that is associated with them. I enjoy the emersion, and critique them heavily. This game allows you to “finish the fight”, but this game is so much more. The campaign brings closure, but it is the multiplayer aspect that will revolutionize XBOX Live and online gaming as we know it.
Halo 3 is Bungie’s 3-year project and baby, with unlimited resources from Microsoft, that was made to send Microsoft’s XBOX 360 to the next level, and it was worth the wait and money. With over 1 million pre-orders, this epic tale concludes with the highest pre-orders of a game to date. This game in campaign feels, and plays near perfect, and allows veterans and newcomers alike to enjoy and truly experience this game. The story line finishes up the previous two games, and is just long enough to make it feel right, and not dragged out. It took approximately 8.5 hours to beat it on legendary difficulty. It may be a bit shorter, though this was played immediately after a midnight sale of this game. The co-op was well done, and creates a new feel for campaign FPS games. I look forward to the future where this will be the standard in playing games.
The online is well done. Halo 3 has once again set the standard of what an online matchmaking/playing system should be. Putting together fun maps, objectives, and customizable Advatars, this game will appeal to the “newbie”, as well as the everyday online Halo player. With the Halo 2 system being overhauled, and the Bungie stat-tracker updated, this game will quickly become the number one game on XBOX Live.
I could write a five page review on this game, the battles, the enemies, weapons, and AI, but it still would not do it justice. If you have an XBOX 360, you should buy this, and buy it now. If you have thought about getting an XBOX 360, this would be the reason to get one. Does it live up to the hype? I don’t think anything could have lived up to the hype that is game received. This game was praised as the second coming, but what it is one of the best games of 2007, and is beautiful and fun to play.Read full review
