Alright went to my buddies yesterday and played Halo 3. We played the last two missions on legendary took about 3 hrs to get through them, the end was crazy. Very Happy So anyways about the gameplay pretty much the same as before but w/ new weapons, changes to the weapons,and far better graphics. One of my favorite additions was the bubble shield and the ability for master chief also to carry active camo. Very Happy The story line is also the best so far. Ending is crazy as I said. The multiplayer added alot it was crazy runnin up and wackin people w/ the gravity hammer. Overall it was better than Halo 3 but it left a little to be desired. Well let me know what you guys think about the game.

The campaign was crazy dude, I loved it though. I don't really like most of the new weapons, I'm sticking with the classics: Battle Rifle (BR) and the Assault Rifle which is crazy that they brought back from the first Halo. I haven't tried it on Legendary yet but when I beat the campaign for the first time I played on Heroic since I'm a HUGE fan of the Halo series and play it all the time. Very Happy The skulls were pretty easy to find. I've found about 7 so far. The graphics are pretty sweet on my flat screen too. Did you see the news post from Wes213 about Halo 3 not being true HD? That's gay but whatever, it still looks bad as shit! haha I think the gameplay was a lot smoother, the grenades are a hell of a lot more realistic. Like if you throw a grenade in the snow, it won't bounce like on Halo 2. That's cool as hell. I messed around with the forge mode for a little while. That's pretty neat, it takes time and a lot of patience though. I haven't had a chance to play online yet though. Some of my buddies say that they like Halo 2 better online. Confused They also said that there wasn't very many people playing online b/c they've played the same guys ever since it came out! haha Weird huh? I guess everyone's finishing up the campaign before they hop online....I dunno. But I love the gameplay, amazing storyline. A great addition to the Halo series and I would DEFINITELY and HIGHLY recommend this game to anyone, even if they've never played any previous Halo games. Wink

Haha yeah the assault rifle comin back is pretty crazy. Man the skulls in legendary are a b**ch to find at least on the levels I played. Yeah they defenitly fixed alot of the games physics in this one. I agree the old weapons are nice but the gravity hammer owns you can knock a damn mongoose or warthog away with it while its comin at you if you time it right. The duel alien shotguns were pretty bad@$$ too I thought. I also thought the carbine was slightly better even w/ the slower rate of fire since they made it a little more powerful.

Okay here is the deal. I purchased Halo 3 from best buy online thinking it will be too me in a couple of days if not sooner. No such luck....it took 8 days to get to me. I bought the collectors edition and when I opened it the tin looked like it had been hit by a hammer about a hundred times and both the discs were loose and scuffed to hell. Crying or Very sad I freaked big time and called Best buy and the dude that answered told me they only had one collectors edition left in the store but that he would hold it for me to do a exchange. I get to the store and the other collectors editon was the exact same way. Crying or Very sad Luckily a buddy of mine has a state of the art disc repair system. You know the kind that cost like 3,000 dollars? He looked at the discs and said no problem man and five minutes later my two discs looked like brand new. So now I am waiting until this weekend too enjoy Halo 3 too it's fullest. I don't play during the week because I get home from work so late. But this weekend will be Halo 3 until I fall asleep with my controller in my hand!!!!! Very Happy

Man I would have been so pissed atleast you got your disks workin. Back when my buddy ordered Halo2 when it first came out he got the collectors edition and it only had the bonus disk in it and no game. He went back in the store and they said they wouldn't replace it since he could of just takin the game out. That is till someone else walked up to the counter when he was there w the same problem. It turned out someone who worked there took em out to try and steal em. The dude got fired on the spot once they figured out what happened.

BTW the dude workin behind the counter almost pissed himself I think when my buddy when in there to get his game. Once the dude told him he couldn't replace the game my buddy went straight f**kin nuts on the guy. The was just sittin there behind the counter shakin and tellin him he couldn't do anything about the game since he didn't open it in the store and the guy didn't get to see that the game wasn't in there originally. Luckily the guy that was behind me and my friend did just open his and there was no disk. For a minute a thought the poor guy behind the counter might b goin home w a few less teeth. Shocked

I haven't played H3 yet, but can't wait. At WalMart we have had huge issues with the disks. The disks that come in the tin are almost always scratched.

I had to open seven tins to get an unscratched disk for a customer last week. They just rattle around in the tin and end up getting scratched to hell.

Terrible packaging!!

I advise anyone who buys that version of the game open it right in front of the associate and look over the disk. If it's scratched, demand another. At WalMart, we don't care about people bringing it back but opening in store saves a trip back to the store.

Later all!
