    I've been watching my son, daughter-in-law, and a friend playing the first several minutes of MP. It looks, really, really, really good so far. At least the MP does. They haven't even bothered with SP yet.

    And, they got the package with Master Chief's Helmet. :)

    It sucks







































    that I don't have a 360 to play it.

    All the reviews I've seen make it out to be awesome, perhaps people are all playing it rather than posting here about it :D

    I asked my son just a moment ago, "On a scale of 1 to 10, what would you give it?"

    He said, "Eleven!" :)

    However, he's been playing CoOp with his wife and buddies mostly.

    I'm not buying it... I mean, the campaign is too short, I haven't played Halo 2 so bleh, I won't get anything.

    Then the graphics to me are just subpar and insulting after FPSs like Bioshock and even if the multiplayer is great, its nothing I haven't experienced on the PC.

    I'll get it once its in the bargain bin I guess...

    i'm in your boat man. i was tempted last night to wait out in the line at my local best buy for this game :p. and to buy a 360 to accompany it. but, then i'd need the VGA adapter to play it on my SyncMaster 226bw because my TV sucks :lol:

    The game was all it was hyped up to be, and more.

    I waited until last night to pick it up (8pm), but I didn't get a chance until about 3 hours ago to play it (12am). And in 3 hours I've already finished 3 missions. Given that there is 9 missions... that's a good indicator as to how short this game is.

    So far it's been pretty fun. Not the best game I've ever played, and anyone who says otherwise clearly hasn't played ANY other games.. such as FryCry, BioShock, or the TimeShift demo. Yes it's fun, and yes it looks nice, but I can't shake that "Halo 2 on steroids" feeling. There are better looking, more involved games out there (see aforementioned BioShock). For me it's just not the knock my socks off, "Oh my GOD! This is the best game ever!" game that everyone seems to be hyping this to be.

    Is that bad though? Nope. Again, it's a fun game, has a steady, well paced story that's involving, and it has fun multi-player. Everything I want in a game of this type.

    imo, i think this game was designed for multiplayer only......

    the entire game is much MUCH to short..... it's rediculious..... i mean seriously when you can complete the mission fairly quick and easy, GoW was longer.. and that was a short game...

    IMO, MS dropped the ball considerably in single player/coop..... multiplayer looks fairly decent though....

    Microsoft Bribed Halo 3 reviewers

    Dean Takahashi’s $800 Halo 3 Schwag Bag : Next Generation - Interactive Entertainment Today, Video Game and Industry News

    I heard MS sent out 60 of these packages to reviewers. Does anyone else think this constitutes as bribery?

    Disappointed as to how short it was. This seems to be a trend with certain games these days and it's not solely a 360 issue. Heavenly sword is another short but sweet game.
    I reckon the right length should be similar to resistance fall of man which lasted nearly twice as long as halo's solo mode did.

    i have to admit that now that ive finished it...its way to short. :rolleyes:
    multiplayer however will last some time for sure.

    the visuals range from "am i supposed to be impressed?" to "holy shit that looks cool"
    there are some suburb looking visuals in areas of the game.

    "Cannot read disc" error problem

    Seems there's another issue with Halo 3 where the system fails to read the DVD. Check it out HERE.

    Customers are reporting a variety of problems, from minor reading issues, say one or 2 campaign maps only, to reading issues right at the start. Also, it doesn't matter what unit it is: new, old, Core through Elite, having it vertical or horizontal... all have a problem. Bad DVDs, or game bug?

    What's interesting for me is that I had this error pop up once while trying to boot up the disc. It worked when I reloaded the DVD, so I just chocked it up to a fluke bad read. Now I'm a little worried.

    I'ts been a joy to play but the jaggies on the horizontal plain have ruined the experience. Sometimes they are downright distracting. I though this was a HD release. It says "HDTV 720p/1080i/1080p" on the back of the game box but it looks like 640 ugh. WTF?

    I read a couple of days ago that some of the packaging was actually causes scratches on some of the DVDs.
