    I've been playing it for a couple of hours and I am not quite as impressed as I hoped I would be. The gameplay is solid but does not offer anything new so far. Basically the same as Halo 2, which is not entirely a bad thing, but I was hoping for a bit more. Visually it's pretty good, though slightly bland when compared to Gears of War, for example. Music is a strong point, as with the first two games.

    Still, I'm remaining open-minded about it as I'm sure it will get better as the story developes.

    @jaxxster:
    I don't have any 360 playing friends I could wind up with it, really xD
    And I only have 1 1/2 hours to go :3
    Just gotta hope it runs, at all, the whole SplitVid thing is giving me a headache.

    Halo 3 is a great game, but it was not as good as Bioshock.

    True, although I suppose Bungie did not promise a revolution in gameplay. Other games have been the subject of similar hype, but were closer to living up to it (e.g Gears of War, Bioshock). I think we were all hoping for more than Halo 2: HD edition.

    Anyone who owns an X-Box 360, I'd assume.

    Personally, I consider FPS games a dime-a-dozen and don't bother with them anymore. I never could fathom why FPS's are so popular that they need 58 billion versions of the same damn thing on the freakin' market. People will say, "Because they sell".....well sure, when you don't really have any other games to choose from....

    Well, the thing with Halo is, if you played Halo 2 to the end, they kinda force you to play 3.
    This works especially well when you are a story whore like me. Unfinished story makes Baby Jesus cry.

    I'm not too excited about shooters either, especially since I had my fill of Halo-esque shooter with Resistance just a little while ago, but I really wanna know how the damn thing ends xD

    Thought the first 2 were ok, kinda enjoyable and played through each but I never bothered with them after aside the odd multiplayer game.

    Will give this a go, its not gonna be a bad game for those who like FPS games thats for sure but I can take it or leave it.

    Still haven't got into Bioshock either, I think I'm losing interest in big console games that aren't by Nintendo [​IMG]

    The 360 is simple to mod and if you do it right, you won't get banned.

    Anyway: I am not disappointed and I'm enjoying the game. Then again, I barely followed any hype at all so there's nothing to really disappoint me. I am all up for some multiplayer later today. We could check out the Online Coop and goof around in Forge.
