Ok so this was a hotly anticipated game for fans of Halo and general game enthusiasts. I was looking forward to it myself, but did it Reach my expectations? No. To be honest it was Halo, nothing more, nothing less. The selesction of maps was small and to be honest not hugely varied, game modes become repetitive quickly and all in all, the difference between it and Halo 3 are not all that great. As in all Halo games they have added and removed some things from Halo 3, new weapons (which aren't all that original), new vehicles (ditto) and the armor abitlities which lose their novelty after a short time don't add an awful lot to multiplayer except some annoying features which can add to annoyance.
Don't get me wrong I actually quite like the game, but only because everyone has it and I can play with them. Other than that I don't think this game has an awful lot going for it. If yiu disagree feel more than welcome to comment. Dead Rising 2 review next.
EDIT: As was well pointed out I forgot to mention single player, well this is actually the best halo campaign so far in my opinion but it does miss out certain parts which made me love Halo 3, such as taking out Scarabs. And you don't really use vehicles all that much. It is also pretty short, it does however have a nice varied sense to it and is relatively difficult on Legendary, especially alone.
