They are as long as you're used to using the Wii. I've been stoked about the FPS potential on the Wii; so far Prime 3 is the only one to deliver on that potential; but it's not really an FPS.

I hear Force Unleased is going to have Wiimote Saber control. Here's to hoping lucasarts gets it right! (Unfortunatly, their previous console record suggests otherwise. Batlefront being developed by an outside company.)

Anyways, so I got playing Halo 3 last night. Thought we could have a 4 player coop since it's what Bungie announced. But to be awkward it's 4 player online coop, but supports 4 player everything else.

The single player itself is dull. You'd need to be stocked up on Red Bull to keep yourself awake through it. Even coop (which thank God they fixed) couldn't save it. The intro menu was confusing as hell at first. Are cutscenes deliberately trying to be mimicking the worst of B-movies? And why do the human faces just suck?

On the other hand Big Battle mode was fun as hell. 4 of us on one screen (our mini army) took on 12 other people on that giant desert map with the Elephant. That was great. For local multiplayers this game is going to be awesome. I couldn't play it online on my own though, it really is a party FPS.

It does not deserve this hype whatsoever. It's a shit singleplayer and an alright (when compared to proper multiplayer games) multiplayer.


Just to make me sound less like a Sony fanboy... I loved Halo 1 it's possibly the best console FPS I've played and still play today

What's wrong with 1280x720? You need a huge screen for higher resolutions to make a difference. Above 50" with a 2 meter viewing distance I recall.

Well, there's one bad thing about 720p. The PS3 can't convert 720p to 1080i, so people with old HDTVs that only supports 1080i is left with 480p quality.

Edit: This is not at all related to Halo 3 but you will click it anyway: http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2007/09/24

I just don't remember when I last played an FPS, let alone one that uses pixel precision sniper rifles and the likes in a resolution even near 1280*720.

LOL at the comic. A journalist mate o' mine is off to interview Kaz in November, not related to much either! But it had to be said!

Ok, I recieved Halo 3 from PLAY in the post yesterday morning, I was unable to play it because I went to Hunstanton for the day. I had a quick go on it last night, finished the first level.

Been playing it to death today, I think I'm now about a quarter of the way through the game. My opinions: Graphically it is clearly the best version of all the Halos, but it doesn't look anywhere near as good as Gears of War, and I think that deep down thats what people wanted. More stuff happens onscreen which is so much better. I haven't tested out multiplayer properly yet as I'm not on XBox Live, but I wandered the maps by myself and thought that every single one was well designed.

I've played the original Halo, never touched Halo 2, so I cannot pass judgement on it aside from screenshot comparisons. It looks great, but it doesn't look brilliant. And the gameplay is very familiar. It feels closer to Halo 1 than 2 for me in terms of gameplay but again I've never played Halo 2.

Overall Opinion: I think you should give it a shot. You might well be surprised. I'm really enjoying it at the moment.

I'm not getting happy over the resolution?...

Besides, Halo 3 is outputting at 1080p on our set. It says 720p on the box but the TV is showing a much crisper 1080 lines. Probably down to the 360's scaler.

yah. The 360 upscales from 720 to 1080, whereas the ps3 downscales from 720 to 480. Quite lame, sony.

720p upscaled to 1080p will look the same on a 1080p TV as it would in 720p on a 720p TV.

720p and 1080p both look fine on my TV, though 720p looks slightly blurry with lots of solid colours.


We're not talking 1080p here We're talking about early CRT HDTVs. A few would only support 480p and 1080i but not 720p. Since the PS3 can't convert 720p to 1080i people with such tvs will be limited to SD resolution.

I'm not going to buy it. It's good for a little bit till you realise you already own Halo 2 or a similar FPS with cliched story, recycled gameplay and find it technically and visually quite an undernourished game.

Until it hits the bargain bin or something.

The low resolution is poor for sniping long distance.
