Halo 3 is a first-person shooter from Bungie and another installment in one of the most popular gaming universes. The third part of the franchise completes the story begun in Halo: Combat Evolved.
The action takes place in years 2552-53, in which humanity colonized the distant boundaries of the universe and met the aliens The Covenant. As a result of the conflict, a war begins between two species. Play as the Master Chief, who suffers a crash in eastern Africa. He is found by his allies Johnson and the Arbiter and together they are sent to repel the alien aggressors.
Halo 3 is a traditional first-person shooter, with a well-designed game world and mythology. The series is known for its multiplayer, which many consider the best in the genre. Matches can fit up to 16 people, who fight in several game modes. They are a variation on the Deathmatch and Capture the Flag modes. In addition to multiplayer battles, players can go through the campaign together with 3 friends in a cooperative mode.
I don't want to get into [Fanboy/girl'ism], but. Halo was released on Xbox, I owed Playstation 2 and I've missed it. I remmember going to computerized game rooms and see people playing "Halo". It seemed futuristic and everyone was playing it! Now I know, it was a beginning of a very holy franchise for xbox. The one and most important, most shiny jewel in the collection of xbox games. I understood that by playing Halo 3 on Xbox 360. Wow, I it is so good that I almost wanna cry. Such attention to detail : music, multiplayer, map editor. The game is vast. It feels boundless. Cortana, is that you?
Maybe this review is a little biased because Halo 3 is my favourite game mostly because of when I played it. It was the first game I played that made feel like I was the character, in this case Master Chief. Before Halo I only played COD MW2 but Halo 3 managed to blew my mind with it's music, gamplay and story.
