Yay! Halo 3 is out tomorrow and getting good reviews. I think i’d better get ready to rush into my local Game at some point tomorrow!
From a certain point of view, Halo 3 is without a doubt the biggest game of the year. The combination of fan anticipation, marketing, and the skill of Bungie’s design combine to create a game that’s larger than life; if gaming has a blockbuster franchise to match the movie industry’s punch, it’s the tale of Master Chief. The importance of the Halo franchise to gaming is a very big issue, though, and one worth it’s own article. Having played through the game, there’s really only one question I’m here to answer today. Does it meet expectations? In a word: yes. It’s not the best game ever made, and it may not even be the best game this year. Will it make the fans happy, and deservedly sell thousands of Xbox 360s? Very much yes.
