You weren't asking me, but my highest ever was 23 on H2... I liked playing head to head the most... I never actually had the game TBH, just borrowed it from a friend for an extended periode of time when his box went down... Can't wait for H3... So close now...

I want this game so much but I don't have a 360. Maybe someday....

I heard people were lining up for it, which is weird because I bought my copy three weeks ago, unless people are lining up to pick-up their pre-solds. I don't know.

Anyway, another site I visit posted a review from some guy who somehow grabbed a copy really early (Not the beta, the real deal). He said it was disappointing in single player because it was too short, and the graphics weren't what he expected. I'm hesitant to believe just one guy, because the reviews just about everywhere else are consistent 10/10's and even the harshest critics are giving it 9.5. I can't wait to pick my copy up tomorrow.

I was going to go and get it but I have heard the same thing arounf here about it not being that great for single player use. Someone anyone let me know whatyou think, when you get yours after the release date. These may be beta's and not full blown versions.

I was not thrilled with "two worlds" but my middle son loves it.

The are also looking forward to Guitar Hero 3, their one friend is rated 43rd in the world on 2.

I hated Two Worlds, lol no offense... After playing oblivion though it was a really waterd down game.

Guitar Hero 3 is going to be great... I am keeping my X-Plorer though even though the Les Paul for 3 is supposed to be really bad ass I don't think it's worth the cash when I can just get the game for much less...

Halo 3 isn't known for its single player, but it isn't bad... I think 3 will really improve upon what 2 did in the campaign mode. The multiplayer is where it really excels though... Man, I haven't really been that excited for it yet up until now... If you beat the game on legendary it's worth 550 gamer points.

First Report: Best of the 3. And I'm experiencing technical difficulties (TV related) and can't get it in HD. I picked it up today, popped it in for what I told myself would be 10 minutes just to take a peek, and I played for 3 hours. Graphics almost as good as Gears, gameplay is improved and completely seamless, and I hopped right back into the story. Heading back in soon.

Damn, this is much more difficult then Halo 2. It's not Ninja Gaiden hard, but it's close.

The Brute Chieftain beat my ass with the Gravity Hammer over and over and over and over again last night.

ShutDown24

The gravity hammer is my new favorite weapon.

My report:

Graphics could be better, decent improvement over the last game.

Storyline is still the Halo storyline, not great; although it is a step up from 1&2 having it come to earth.

Game play and multiplayer are pretty much what you would expect meaning they are great.

The multiplayer maps suck. I'm sorry but this is one aspect of the game that Bungie really regressed since H2. There are no longer any small maps. They are almost all huge and really don't get much sense of anything different when I go from one to another.

Matchmaking takes forever.

The forge is a really cool idea but it's kind of hard to use.

They made Zombies a real game type.

There is no map to play tower of power on.

I went from 11:30 - 1:00 to get my copy. Waited in line that stretched the whole way down the sidewalk of the complex. Cars kept speeding by and people were yelling at us. One group drove by and smashed a 360 on the ground out of the window and filmed the lines expressions. It was grueling...

To be completely honest, the game wasn't worth the long wait in line to get that night. Great game, will meet most peoples expectations but falls a bit short of mine. Despite that though, the online is still great and I am still going to spend hours on the game every day for the next month or so.

Got it for my kids, and finaly got to try it myself. I still like Oblivian better, but since I beat halo 1 and 2. I have to do the same with 3.
If my kids will ever let me play the darn game. Now they are hiding the cd from me so I don't beat the game before they do. They have some darn good hiding places. If I find it, I am going to lock it in the gun safe, that will teach them.

I'm about halfway done now (Just getting ready to start "Floodgate"). Just a really solid game all the way around. Does it re-revolutionize gaming? No, but the original game already did that. I definitely think it's good enough to warrant somebody sitting on the fence to pick up the 360 over.

Bioshock and Oblivion are in queue for me. If Oblivion is anything like Elder Scrolls, I think I'll save it for the winter. That way I won't miss the 200 hours I'll be spending on it.

My only disappointment is the ending but I was tipped off to that by one of the few reviews I read before I picked up the game. The graphics and gameplay are great but I dont like playing shotty sniper every other game in multiplayer. I beat it the first day it was out so now I can concentrate having fun online.

To tell you the truth, I was right at the end (Just retrieved Cortana) when I went back to playing Perfect Dark Zero. I can't bring myself to end Halo 3 just yet.

Man...I just got Halo 3 new on eBay for $39!!! I wasn't very fond of Halo 2 beyond the music and story...otherwise, just another shooter. I think Gears will be tough to top in my book. We'll see.

I don't plan on playing online as all I have had are bad experiences with immature people. Plus, I don't play enough to even compete with people who can play enough to beat it in a day!!! My wife would divorce me!

Yeah, I'm not into online play either. I loved Gears, but I like Halo 3 just as much. They are just different.

As for online play, it reminds me of laser tag. I used to play like 10 years ago, and it seemed fun, but there were always like 2 guys that just lived at the place and knew all the secrets and wasted everybody every game. It made it no fun. It's almost the same thing. If you want to play online, even in beginners games, there is always some jackass who has no job and has nothing better to do then just play Halo 21 hours a day.

Once you beat campaign there isnt much to do unless you play online.
