Halo 3 and will it live up to hype?

Posted on 5th March 2008 by gamerzclash in Games,Reviews


I am a fan of Halo after the introduction of the original game for X-Box. As a shooter fan goes all the way back to Quake in mid-1990, I like the first person point of view and find it enjoyable as it shows the creativity in the creation of several alien characters fun and amusing. The trailer for Halo 3 shows a beautiful view of what remains of New Mombasa and through the haze and destruction can see the Master Chief, but the picture are shots of Cortana. She speaks barely comprehensible lines like: “This is how your world ends.” It seems that although the Master Chief has MA5B Assault Rifle by Halo 1, the armour seem somewhat different but Bungie company officials are not confirming or deny anything. We see some shots of the assault rifle, a new weapon and a new alien arsenal, the M90 rifle, and the Covenant beam rifle, which I love. That was my favorite in Halo 2 for alien long-range sniping.

As I already mentioned, it seems that Halo 3 will take place on earth which has been completely overrun and is now being controlled by the Covenant. In the teaser, we see a great Alliance ships excavation that Master Chief is researching. Some of the information that has been published says that the details and the graphics are incredible, such as being able to see the difference between the Master Chief’s armour and rubber undersuit, where you can see that the reflection of what is in front to him in his sights when you zoom in close.

A rumour that has been shown to be unsubstantiated is that of the release dates of Halo 3 and the much anticipated Halo film, which is directed by Peter Jackson of Lord of the Rings fame. It also indicated that, contrary to what has been published so far, this may not be the end of the Halo saga. The game engine has reportedly seen a great update and graphics are much better. They are also easier to create custom games for the multiplayer mode. I think that remains to be seen, but I cannot wait until the release of the game and the movie. The game will be the game of the year, as far as I am concerned, and if Jackson pulls from Halo like what he did with Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, then we are all in a single treatment.
