Halo 3 is the premier game of the X360 and shows off what Microsoft has been boasting about since the 360's release. We all know the story, the Covies are attempting to activate Halo with the belief of some divine intervention. As the story goes you are again Master Chief, last of the Spartan project(apparently...) and have landed smack into a planet from deep space. Johnson, the Arbiter and a marine platoon find your body and believe you to be dead. You wake up and startle a marine but do not surprise Johnson that much. This game is built the way Halo 2 was built and has the same feel with it. The story develops throughout the game very well and the weapons are still fun as hell to use. I will never get bored with Battle Rifling those damn Flood in their head and or heads.
The weapons are great ranging from the fixed and revamped needler gun to the always fun to use gravity hammer and the spiker grenades and napalm grenades. The gameplay is enjoyable and the levels are long and plentiful with enemies. The flood are hard and become very difficult to fight considering most of the time it is you vs the flood. The vehicles are much more interactive and useful through the single player campaign than in the previous 2 games. Guns like the mauler(the covy shotty) and the spiker(covy duel weildable SMG's) become unlikely guns that you will fall in love with but when it comes down to accuracy and usefulness the Battle Rifle is bar non the best gun in the Halo universe.
Now for the review of the real reason we all buy Halo 3...the online multiplayer. Obviously the best multiplayer game made(sorry Call Of Duty 4...) Halo 3 delivers what the fans want! Allied with the new Forge system where anyone who plays online can create their own version of the Halo maps is a fun and great toy to play with. Nothing more fun than playing infected and making a house to do a Halo version of Dawn of the Dead.
All in all between playing big team battle, slayer and mad amounts of grifball I must say that this is one of the funnest games I have played in years. I will be playing this online for years to come.
