I'd play, but I don't really see the point... wait years for slightly better graphics and some new weapons...

I was not impressed at all.

Halo was a great step in its day, Halo 2 was less impressive, but still entertaining.

But as far as comparing to other games on the console itself, Halo 3 doesn't seem to be up to par at all. No where near as impressive as R6:Vegas or Gears - (comparing it to PC multiplayers would be unfair).

I think Bungie has become complacent and they use the fact that people are going to buy Halo 3 no matter how un-impressive it is. I know its only Beta, but I hope they have a whole LOT up their sleeve on this one.

There are always critics.

Yeah, let's compare a multiplayer only beta of an unfinished game to games which were not only completed months ago but have also been through their own sets of patches. That's a real fair and logical comparison.

This beta may be seen as a taste of what's to come and some even think of it as a finished product but its major purpose is to help Bungie improve matchmaking technology, combat bugs, etc.

With that said, I've yet to encounter any major bugs. The stats breakdown after a game are awesome and very useful. And the save film feature is wonderful and just as useful.

I have a lot I can say on the Halo 3 beta and I won't say it in this thread. Suffice it to say that I was disappointed when I first played it, mostly because of the experience, not the graphics or the gameplay. But after getting together with my Xbox Live friends and playing with them, I have to say the entire experience is just amazing. Communication, teamwork, everything. It's much, much more fun to play with people you know.

Anyway, my gamertag is in my sig. Message me if you wanna get together, I have plenty of people to play with if you wanna join a party of ours.

There are always Fanboys.

But dont get me wrong I loved halo 2 just as much as the next person but i totally agree with stupid on this one halo 3 beta was quite a disapoinment in my book, yes yes i know its a beta but i dont think bungie would even think of releasing something that was not close to finishing.

I wish this forum had some of the rules the other forums I frequent have. Neowin, for example, issues warnings to people who use fanboy at the drop of a hat.

Remember, calling people a fanboy can be seen as the last resort of a desperate person who only wants an argument.

Why don't you read through my post again and explain how offering my opinion and showing exactly how his argument is illogical qualifies me as a fanboy?

Exactly, it doesn't. People throw around fanboy like it's just another word but all it does is start hostile and futile arguments.

I'll say it again, he compared a multiplayer only beta of an unfinished game to two games that were not only completed months ago and have also received several patches in that time. That is not a valid argument.
