    I heard that a lot of the legendary edition disks are scratched up real bad on the account of a crappy case. Hopefully you're lucky!

    It's the limited editions, not legendary I think. Yeah hopefully, some guy said he had proven that was fake, but I dunno.

    It was supposed to be sarcastic.

    But seriously, Halo is really, really overrated.

    Counterstrike is better. and Counterstrike isn't even that great.

    Yeah I've met some people that really don't like it, but most of them are bad at it. Counterstrike is a great game, probably second or third on my list of shooters. When Famitsu, a Japenese gaming mag gives you a 37/40, you're not overrated;)

    Why do they even bother putting in a single player campaign?

    Because it's epic:D It's a great singleplayer game, it's just vastly underrated because it is probably close to, or the best multiplayer game ever made. Multiplayer sticks out because it's what people are playing for years afterwards, just look at games like Starcraft.

    Yeah, but Starcraft was actually good.

    Halo would be better on the PC.
    I can't play FPS games with a controller.

    Why aren't there more flying vehicles in the multiplayer? There's only the Banshee, which is somewhat lame.

    I came in line for the midnight release and there were about less than 100 people at my local gamestop. The ONLY people who bought the legendary edition were the fat, non-bathing geeks.

    Don't have it yet. I personally am more excited about Brothers in Arms Hell's Highway, than Halo 3. But hopefully I can pick up Halo 3 sometime before the end of the year (Christmas if anything, lol).

    Just beat it. I tore through the campaign on normal in about 6, maybe 7 hours. I might get to play some LIVE multiplayer later tonight.

    I played multiplayer for a bit. I'm not convinced it's better than H2's multiplayer- there seems to be a bit too much going on with the extra pickups, and it feels like there are too many weapons. I've heard the campaign is better than H2's (better be) and that there is an alternate ending for beating the game on Legendary.

    I plan on picking up a 360 and H3 after Christmas. :D

    I guess you can run through normal easily. Try beating those hunters with the hammer on Heroic.

    So was the extra money you spent on the legendary edition worth it?

    I remember back in the day when Metroid came out and everybody was surprised to find out that Samus Aran is actually a woman.

    Yeah normal is actually quite easy, but I did get frustrated at some points when I was running low on ammo and lo and behold, a great wave of Flood came at me. I'm gonna go play some LIVE now.

    Im going to buy Halo 3 eventually but at this time im working on trying to beat Bioshock first. I should have the game completed by Saturday but at this time my destiny is to beat Bioshock. A few days ago i beat Medal of Honor: Airborne which is a pretty good game.

    I guess the game is based on you being very resourceful on ammo. I just finished that Cortana mission on Legendary via Co-op and the best thing to do is run coz it'll take hours to kill every flood in there.

    Picked up my Limited Edition on the 25th and went through 8 copies due to the discs being scratched. My local Gamestop had to open a regular edition and give me the game disc from that. Still...its not a bad game and I enjoy the co-op campaign quite alot. Multiplayer is decent but it always seems like it takes a while just to join a game. Personally, I enjoyed the Call of Duty 4 beta more than what I've played of Halo3 so far.

    Played Halo 3 today during school on a projector.

    Didn't notice much of difference from Halo 2 other than some cool new weapons (shotgun pistols) and lack of cool maps (No Lockout!).

    Lockout was really the only map I was decent at.

    Played a bit of the campaign today, and more multiplayer.

    I'm starting to like it more and more, but all the maps feel a little too big. Getting used to the pickups and the button remapping is still a bit of frustration. Why didn't Bungie make 'X' reload/grab weapons like normal and do the pickups on the shoulder button like the grenades? Makes no sense to me...

    I just beat the game a few hours ago. The flood lvls are ridiculously hard, and it was just on normal no way i could beat last 2 lvls on heroic. None on legendary. this is prolly the hardest halo game.

    I played on live all day today with 3 of my other friends (on one console). The game is absolutely amazing. I wasn't a fan of H2 but this game is awesome.

    Best Halo yet IMO.

    I got it thursday, finished it on Friday.. Weapons are awesome, and brutes are a lot more fun to kill than elites. Also the detail they put onto the flood was awesome and the level with the flood (i think second last) was ridiculously annoying and hard.

    Good thing though is that the reload button is the same on Gears of War, so that didn't affect me much
