    I like it. I think it's good.

    But it is not even close to being the best game ever (as IGN so love to point out), nor even on X-Box. And it certainly isn't on the scale of Harry Potter, LOTR and Star Wars. That is just ridiculous.

    Game doesn't even do that well outside of North America.

    For the X-Box I would say so.

    Overall I am not sure, it might be. But FPS are not my favourites. I remember Doom, Quake and Team Fortress, they were great fun as well.

    I liked Project: Snowblind on PS2 and Black. Black was simply a fun game.
    Call of Duty and FarCry too.

    Resistence is also a good game.

    I would rate Halo above Resistence, Project: Snowblind, Black. But probably not above Doom and Quake (consider the effect is has when you first play it)

    personally, I loved Halo : Combat Evolved as a launch title.
    however, I think Gears of War has it's number ... for now
    we'll see , IGN will publish the review tomorrow

    Review for Halo 3?

    Do you think Halo was better than Halo 2?

    Halo Combat Evolved was much better than 2

    2 had it's upside, dual-wielding was nice, and playing split roles as the Arbiter was a nice change of pace; but I really can't remember much about the campaign ..... and nothing of the ending

    the multiplayer in 2 was nothing compared to Combat Evolved
    still to this day, there are still groups of gamers playing MP Halo 1, and a buddy of mine still holds a LAN party every year

    until you've played Halo with a dozen or so buddies over LAN, you haven't really played it ... there was talk about making a HALO MMOFPS

    I remember one time we had four Xbox's - 4 people per team and we played for roughly 12 straight hours .... good times
    why they never patched in a LIVE component into 1 is still beyond me

    I think that was huge. The story evolving was very good, although the end was a bit lacking. It seems like the biggest talk about Halo has always been the mulitplayer online stuff, but I think the story and cut scenes are very good.

    Big thing I didn't like about 2 compared to 1 was something in the feel. Been awhile since I played them, so I can't quite put it into words now, but something didn't feel quite as good about the controls.
