Sorry for the very childish name.

Is anyone getting it/preordered it? I'm not a huge fan but I buy the games as they are pretty good. Cannot decided weather to preorder number 3 though. Have they upped the graphics much since Halo 2 on PC?? From the poor screenies I have come across in my travels it doesn't look like the beatbox thirty six hundred is being used to its fullest potential, which is very strange as this is probably the biggest game ever to hit xbox.

I've heard it's quite good off a few folks who bought it from Tesco. I'm worried though, cuz Halo 2 was well recieved but a terrible game.

Maybe that's a sign that there is a large amount of Halo fanboys?

Oh COME, ON. Halo 3 is undisputedly going to be THE best multiplayer online game to date. It may not be acquired to everyone's tastes and people will have their own favourites set out already - but compared with those of whom this game appeals to, that's going to be quite a minority.

Seriously, I dont even have an Xbox360 (yet), but the additional stuff they are throwing in this game is actually INSANE. For starters, you can record entire games, playing the back from any persons' perspective or explore on 'free-cam', at any speed or frame rate and even upload them online etc.

That, in itself, is something that no other game offers - and it'll be an awful long time before any other games do I'm sure. How cool?!! That's one of around 50+ things that will make this game the best selling and ultimate game ever, to date. I reckon I'd even put money on it - there's nothing that they've left out on this one guys.

Halo one was good. I didn't like halo 2. Grunts are my favorite part of the game.
Seriously, thats genius, having the enemies be funny short cowards with high pitched voices. Hours of entertainment.

I doubt it. Firstly it can't be an online multiplayer king if you're stuck without a keyboard and mouse.

Team Fortress 2. Possibly the most perfect online multiplayer I've had the joy of playing. Puts the consoletard Halo 3 beta to shame, it was great but ultimately cut down compared to PC shooters. (story of consoles life I suppose!)

Also Slink - apparently they've upped the graphics too, and I played the demo a little way back, and even then the gfx were much better than H2. Having a HDTV will be a must when playing this.

Enemies also 'think' much better in campaign (like if two of them are together, they both do the same thing, and higher commanding enemies tell others to do stuff, like all throw grenades! ) and you can be brutes and marines and all sorts in multiplayer!

... I want a 360

I want "a kill cam" like in Call of duty. I'm sick of not knowing where the sniper was when he shot me.

Well besides the frame rate thing you could do that in Counter strike source.

I can't imagine that being a heavily used feature. Sounds good and all for a few minutes. It's not like it's going to single handedly be the best game ever for it.

Halo 3 will probably be one of the best multiplayer games on a CONSOLE - but even then it hardly does anything that Halo 2 doesn't in the multiplayer arena. They've thrown in a map editor tool, which apparently is the only thing about the game that isn't any good (according to some blogs I read).

It's going to sell well because people want to know what happens to Master Chief - I already watched all the endings on YouTube and they've still not really killed the story off (Microsoft will probably suck the franchise for all the money they can get).

If I had a 360 then I'd definately buy it - but I'd rather play Counter-Strike or Team Fortress 2 on a PC

@Jimmi: I knew someone would say that, when I tried to explain how it wasn't the most obvious selling point _

"How cool?!! That's one of around 50+ things that will make this game the best selling and ultimate game ever, to date."

It's annoying how this community rips eachother apart for looking forward to stuff and being enthusiastic etc. It's just depressing having these kinda conversations :\

Thing is I like Halo as a series. It's nice, a little cliched and it's nothing new anymore. But it's my fave console FPS. I just can't get excited for Halo 3. The beta looked cack, the full version is only slightly improved, unless you unlock "make this game look as good as other 360 games" when you complete it?

In the end it's your typical console FPS. Cut down controls, simplified AI that don't require as quick reactions as PC shooters, extremely linear, loading times to watch girls go by to, "in your face" style characters (a little too GoW for me thx) with a diluted storyline to appear to the masses. On top of that the gameplay itself is feeling old now. It's as if they've taken the now 6 year old Halo 1 and added dual wield. And forget the unique and entrancing environments from Halo 1

It's like the Matrix all over again. A unique and genuinely good attempt at something new to start with, then fan service for sequels. I guess FF7 falls into this as well.
