Halo 3 Review by CheesePwnsMe





Campaign


In Halo 3, the campaign is divided into 10 levels of carnage. Each level has its own twist or certain feel to it, as well as this the covenant and flood can't make their mind whether they should be on your side or not as well, so one minute you could be smashing the hell out of a brute then a minute later you've just weakened someone who's just switched sides to you. Aside from this the levels offer a lot of variety and you get to explore the weapons and vehicles of halo, the last level in particular sees you invade a tower of flood (alien zombie things), around an icy mountain, to later head through the mountain an emerge on platforms suspended over lava, with just you and your warthog. The campaign is maybe a bit short and does lack variety at some places.

Multiplayer (Matchmaking)


Matchmaking is where Halo 3 really shines, the game has been out for over a year and a half now and there is still constantly in excess of a quarter of a million people online at one given time. There are two types of playlists, Ranked and Social, they are pretty much the same, except you have skills in each of the playlists in Ranked. The Experienced system is quite complicated to begin with, first of all you gain 1xp if you finish in the top half of the game.
e.g
your team wins in a team game.
you come in the top 4 out of 8 in a free for all.
Then you level with that, but once you attain gunnery sergeant, you can then choose to either level up by getting a high skill in a playlist (to advance to the next tier e.g. commander --> colonel) or by exp to get higher in that tier (e.g brigadier --> brigadier grade 2).
Altogether the multiplayer is completely carnage and some of the game modes and so inventive it makes the fun never end, along with this you have custom games which have people using forge (the map editor) to create a whole new game mode, and trust me, they are inventive, this all adds up to one hell of an experience, with only some minor lag, occasionally its unplayable, but thats quite rare.

Forge

In this mode you select one of the maps of Halo 3 and move, delete and manipulate objects around the map, this has been used in the greatest ways, some examples...

Smear the Queer - 2 people are infected with plasma pistols and energy swords and everyone else has choppers and ghosts to splatter them in a square arena.

Beep or Sleep - One person is infected with a sniper and everyone else is driving around a circuit with no walls, if you go off the sides you die, and if you get sniped or if your vehicle gets sniped and sends you spinning of the edge then you become infected.

In Halo there is also a theater mode to watch your past 20 games and take screenshots or save films.

Overall


Halo 3 is an amazing game, with medals to attain in game such as double kill, triple kill, overkill e.t.c. to superb graphics on the vehicles and maps.

Rating 96/100
