The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Halo 3 Beta Impressions

Posted on Monday, May 14 @ 19:23:28 PST by Duke_Ferris
Bungie threw a party in San Francisco Friday night and I was able to play a bunch of Halo 3. Even better, I got a code to download it from Xbox Live and play it at home.

And while it's fun, It didn't have the wow factor I was hoping for. To be fair, it is a limited beta - only 3 multiplayer maps, and no single player game. But to me it felt less like Halo 3, and more like Halo HD.

The beta has a couple new weapons, a new ATV vehicle, and these portable shield generators you can drop, but the core mechanics remain exactly the same. It really feels like playing a gussied up Halo 2. That's not a bad thing, after all, Halo is a great game, but I guess it's one that I've already played.

While the graphics are good and the framerate is nice and stable, it lacks the visual punch of "newer" games like Gears of War. Of course, Halo maps are often much larger than those in GoW, and you need a longer draw distance.

You can all find out for yourself on Wednesday anyway. At least those of you with a 360 and the game Crackdown - you'll be in on the 3-week beta yourself.

As for me, I reserve judgment, that's why it's called a beta after all. But one thing I know for sure - if you want more Halo, this is more.
