Halo 3 Review :
GSP - Halo 3
Halo 3 is one of the best FPS's to date. I guess I should start with the campaign. You basically start out shooting. There isn't much of a tutorial, and after watching a cutscene you are thrown into a jungle environment where you walk for a bit then immediately start unloading on enemies. Enemies are rewarding to kill, most take 3-4 shots to kill or 1-2 shots in the head. It's not as fast-paced as some other games due to this, but it makes every kill even more fun. You have regenerating health, which means if you get shot a few too many times, you can duck behind a rock and as long as you don't get shot for about 5 seconds your health will return to normal. There are many environments to play through, which means that you won't get tired of seeing the same old thing. The campaign is great, but the multiplayer is the real highlight of the game.
Next up is the multiplayer. This is probably the part of the game that is the best. There is forge, where you are able to make your own maps to play. This allows so many possibilities for different types of games from racetracks to shoot-outs. You can spawn things such as boxes, weapons, powerups, and about 20 scenery items per map. The controls in forge are hard at first, but once you get the feel for them it won't be a problem. Custom games is basically where you can play forge maps. You make make your own game types that have things such as damage modifiers etc. and play on the maps you made online. This part of the game is what gives it the immense replay value that is has, as you'll find yourself playing these for hours.
Theatre is the part of the game, where you can save your films from in-game and share them with others. There really isn't much to it, except that if others want to watch it you are pretty much forced to put it on your "file share" (a system that allows you to transfer maps, in-game movies, and gametypes) and have them download it, since the party theatre function is broken and chances are you will probably end up getting dropped.
The game is great overall, and it's a must have if you own an Xbox 360.
