    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.

    would you say it's the best FPS ?

    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.
