The epic saga continues with Halo 3, the hugely anticipated sequel to the highly successful and critically acclaimed Halo franchise. In this third chapter of the Halo trilogy, Master Chief returns to finish the fight, bringing the epic conflict between the Covenant, the Flood, and the entire human race to a dramatic, pulse-pounding climax.
Halo 3 represents the third chapter in the Halo trilogy-an international award-winning action series that grew into a global entertainment phenomenon, selling more than 14.5 million units worldwide, logging more than 650 million hours of multiplayer action on Xbox Live, and spawning action figures, books, a graphic novel, apparel, an upcoming film adaptation, and more.
• Next-gen advantage: Taking full advantage of the power of Xbox 360, Halo 3 expands on everything that has made the Halo franchise great, adding a wealth of technical and gameplay advancements.
• Evolution of design: Next-generation high-definition visuals, enhanced A.I., an advanced real-time lighting engine, and new weapons, characters, and challenges are just a few examples of Halo 3's evolution of design and technology.
• Unparalleled experience: Ultimately, these improvements provide gamers with an unparalleled experience and, in the end, tell an even more compelling and engrossing story.
• Online multiplayer: Working in concert with Xbox Live on Xbox 360, Halo 3 builds upon the unique social multiplayer experience and innovative, evolving online gameplay of Halo 2.
As Halo was the flagship game for the Xbox when it first came out, so too was Halo 3 and I can easily see why. Halo 3 is a game that was made to Bungie's exacting standards of workmanship and gameplay and once again this comes out on top.
The graphics and environments are absolutely stunning and many times I found myself shot dead just because I stopped to look at part of the scenery.
This time around you don't have Cortana to guide you as she has been captured by the Gravemind a huge creature that is linked to the Flood. What you do have though is a... well sidekick is not quite the right word, more a partner, this time in the form of the Arbiter, you also get help along the way from his Elites. It turns out that your gonna need your help as there are more new Covenant baddies for you to face.
Also the AI is vastly improved on the first two games, but that's always the case when you have a more seriously powered CPU at your disposal.
While there are only nine levels in the entire game, each level is so vast and engrossing you don't notice the small amount of them.
I feel that this chapter is a fitting end to the Halo trilogy, but I couldn't help but wonder what the final cut scene was meant to imply.....
