SWORDS!

I own at them

I love Halo

one of the only games you can rely on to always be fun.

EDIT: Halo 3 is hands down the best entry yet.

or

RAWKET LAUNCHER

battles with more people were generally based on numbers more than anything, unless a rocket launcher was involved.
AR starts = fail

Play the MLG playlist if you're looking for legitimate competition.

When you just blurt "Halo 3 sucks and so will this" without any reasoning it makes you look like a huge flamebaiter. what exactly sucks? and don't just say it's overhyped, that's not a reason to hate the game. what EXACTLY are the aspects you're not fond of?
horrendous melee system(what's wrong with H2's)
every single multiplayer map sucks. every.single.one(the pit's decent)
terrible spawn system(High Ground anyone?)
redundant weapons(mauler, spikers, hammer, etc)
assault rifle
I could go one all day.


Sorry I came off as a dick though. It's just hard for me to believe there are people that think this game is good :/

I will admit - I'm looking forward to Halo ODST. A Halo FPS without Master Chief? My interest was sparked.

You can't be serious.
You're entitled to your own opinion, but many people would also argue that Guardian, Construct, Narrows, and Onslaught are also great maps.

What's wrong with the melee system? It helps to eliminate host advantage. There is really no alternative until Xbox Live starts using dedicated servers.

In what ways are the spawns terrible? There's this basic strategy called map control, I don't know if you've ever heard of it. The team with the best team work is awarded better vantage points, and the maps power weapons. Occasional spawn killing happens in all FPS games. *cough* COD4 *cough*

I'm not sure how the guns you listed are redundant. The only similarity I see between the three weapons you mentioned is that they're all capable of killing an opponent. The mauler is a pocket shotgun, the spiker is a "nail gun", and the hammer is a massive melee weapon.

I'll agree with you on the AR. The assault rifle is terrible, no doubt about it. Play Slayer team BR's, Squad Battle, Swat, Snipers, or MLG if you hate the AR like I do. It was designed to cater toward casual gamers, which is the majority of the gaming population, so you can't really blame Bungie for that.

Halo 3 remains a great game purely because of the amount of custimisation to maps & gametypes that is possible. Go play some custom games at a LAN and tell me it isn't great fun.

halo 1 > halo 2 > halo 3
halo 3 is the worst so far and ODST is probably going to be even worse, halo 3 requires 0 skill

You can't be serious.

Why did it sell 80000000000000000000000000 copies on it's launch day? And 8000000000000000000 more when people realized how much fun the game is.


EDIT: I mean numbers speak for themselves, the simple gamer seems to enjoy this game, and I'm not far from that status either.
