You bring up MGS4, and you know what. It should score higher then Halo if this is what we should expect. I mean MGS4 raises the bar on a technical level, improves and adds far more then any of the previous series ever had aswell as includes an Online Component (MGS4 will have MP, MGSO is something else).

pkirby11, Were not trashing the game. Were just saying that it doesn't deserve the score. Especially when you look at other games that have rexieved lower scores and offered far more changes and new features from the originals. Yes Zelda had no MP but Twilight Princess was such a drastic change from the norm when it came to Zelda considering how stale the series has been getting and yet its score was hurt because it didn't change enough.
Like most game series from Unreal to the new MGS all it comes down to is refinements to the core game while keeping it true to the original. And thats what they basically did. Gamespot in the video review even said this. It plays like Halo 2 and its a direct continuation from it. What else do you want? Tactics, RPG elements? I don't think bring anything new to it would keep you from trashing it.

Magus it doesn't even appear you have played Halo 3 yet you feel the need to say it doesn't deserve the score. I just cannot understand that though I would be able to respect and understand your opinion more if you did as I too have not played the game so I cannot defend the score just like I cant disagree with it. Your going beyond a fanboy to the point you have to hate something for the sake of hating whats popular to many others.

In the end this is a mute point until we both play the game so have fun trashing a game you have not played because you feel it scored better than games you like. And I actually thought this thread would go better so fans or anyone about to buy the could have a meaning full discussion on the game.

Just so everyone understands and is on the same page, halo3:
-Doesn't do anything revolutionary.
-Doesn't do anything really amazing.
-Doesn't have the most amazing cutting edge graphics you've ever seen.
-Has worse graphics in multiplayer than singleplayer.
-Has four person co-op (two people per console).
-All the graphics, textures, are top notch.
-The voice acting is well done.
-There are very few bugs or issues with the game.

The game isn't amazing but unlike many other games, nothing sucks.

I agree with this... The game does many things right but its not anything special. That is why I believe the score is too high, yes its a good game but shouldn't games that push the envelope get the high score and praise, Not the games that just refine whats already been done?

EDIT: My coworker just saw the shots and stated that they are from the COOP Game, not VS Mode. Also he made me aware of something, the game only supports 8v8 max in MP? Thats pretty lame, I honestly expected numbers in the high 20's and even max at 32 like many PS3 (OMG FANBOY!) games are doing. Are teh servers client side (running off your machine) or instanced off MS's servers?

I played the Halo 3 beta quite a bit too...felt like Halo 2 with a few new weapons.

It seems like just another form of fanboyism to chastise someone for having a negative opinion of a game. It really isn't a "Halo 3 sucks" opinion either...more of a "Halo 3 isn't the greatest game ever" type of opinion.

I think if we just refrain from calling each other fanboys, these threads would focus more on discussion of the game, and less on trying to justify or defend our opinions.

I need to try to take some of my own advice as well...I probably get a little offensive sometimes, but I really don't mean to be.
Don't get me wrong Butter Bandit. There is nothing wrong or fanboy about having a opinion on either disliking or liking a game. He went beyond that though to just absurdity from the first page. At least have some good merits to why you dislike it other than the scores are the result of shady business or it got scored higher than a game you like. And at least play the game first before you saying the scores are too high. Its like rating a movie worse than one you have already seen based on a preview. Who does that? And thats what I have issues with, not him liking or disliking the Halo franchise.

finally some sense .... thats not what i heard in the gamespot halo 3 forum


http://www.gamerankings.com/htmlpages2/926632.asp

a 10 from 1up, pro-g, gamepro, euro gamer, GAMESPY??, Game informer??

i gotta say arstechnica's review is surprising = a 7
http://arstechnica.com/reviews/games...-of-halo-3.ars

i guess they didnt get their paycheck for the review

i think halo 3 should be around 9, should score somewhere from 8.8 to 9.3 , its a good game , but 9.5 is totally overrated

and this is from someone who owns a 360, PS3 20GB, and a Wii

Well I'm not gonna get involved with the whole review process as it seems that many of you seemed to have already made up your mind. Anyways, just wanted to let ya know that the matchmaking servers went up last night and I spent quite a few hours playing. Great stuff!

BTW, those pics posted look absolutely awful. The colors are bland and ugggh, luckily it looks outstanding on my hdtv.
