My first dive into a Halo Game and I want more! Graphics? The online Halo 3 multi player expansions are worth the fee alone!

Well Halo 1 is a fantastic game if you wanna check it out. I'm sure it will be dead cheap on eBay.

Well id never played a halo game before, so had no preconceptions of what to expect, if that was my only entry into the halo world I world I wouldn't be jumping to go back.

Graphically I felt it was poor halo 3 in my eyes looks better, the story I couldn't tell you now why I was doing the things asked in the game other then to finish it.

Its the worst game by any means but it is also very average imo firefight does seem decent tho.

I have recenyly bought ODST and I think it's alright tbh. Only cost me 20 quid, brand new as well and I think it's worth that to be fair.

I got mine with the console but tbh I was rather let down by odst.

its lucky I got halo 3 on rental before I had played too much tho or I would have given up on halo all together.
