Halo is the best, because of the multi-player. The weapons are balanced, the levels are balanced and the game plays smooth. In COD4 you have a distinct advantage being level 55 over level 1; which is only an advantage to people who live on the game. - chinchilla41191
Clearly Bungie was listening to the criticisms of Halo 2. Not only is Chief in the driver's seat once more, but the environments are varied enough that each level feels distinct. Though you will still need to backtrack in a few areas, it's not as tedious as in previous iterations. The levels in Halo 3 lend to spectacular pacing that weaves from close-quarters, intense battles with Chief and a few soldiers, to more epic arenas. It does feel as if the marine presence is lighter than it should be, but there's enough chaos in the field to at least make it appear as if Master Chief is part of something grander.
Halo 3 has always been the most fun for me. It has a well balanced multiplayer (in my humble opinion the best multiplayer I've experienced) and a delightful campaign; although I do prefer the multiplayer section more... Halo 3 is great because it has a place for a variety of different kinds of players, if your a competitive gamer, if you want to have fun with friends, or if you just want to escape reality for a while, halo 3 does a pretty good job of these things... That's my view on things
The first thing I am going to state before I get to this is a disclaimer: every body has their own opinions, so don't assume that if someone plays your favorite game, they should love it as well. Now, I will admit that I've really played more of Halo: Reach than any others in the series, but Halo 3 is definitely the one I have the most nostalgia with. It was the second full Halo game I played, and I played it for hours on end.
this is the #1 game because it has the best graphics with intense grenades and badass weapons that will obliterate and have the greatest story, good theme song, and diffuculties. the best part is online playing because it is an all out war like world war 2. they have awesome strategies and smexy vehicles. halo 3 the ultimate editon of wars. (p. s. they have unlockable skulls) (p. s. s. 10 g(gamescore) - animedude7
Definitely have to agree, I honestly thought this was Xbox 360 exclusives, that would make a lot more sense now wouldn't it?
But anyways, H3 is easily the best Xbox 360 game currently out. This was Halo's last multiplayer goodness offering. Reach sucked.
This was a great game, have a lot of good memories with it. It's a shame Halo is so unpopular now, before it was a juggernaut.
I hate this game for 1 reason... I CANNOT GET OFF OF IT! I AM NOW HIGHLY MALNURISHED AND HAVE NO SOCIAL LIFE AS I HAVE NOT LEFT MY BEDROOM IN 4 MONTHS... MY OWN MOTHER WONT TALK TO ME.. THIS GAME HAS KILLED ME, BUT IF I DIE PLAYING, I WILL HAVE FUFILLED WHAT THE PHOPHICIES FORSAW OF ME.. THEREFORE THIS GAME YOU COULD SAY HAS MADE BE RE-BORN. - althemasterno1enemy
Its no surprise this at the top. It has a commanding lead in 360 game sales. I got my 360 mainly for this game. Countless hours could be spent on campaign and forge, custom games and the awesome multiplayer. I mean its either this game or Halo: Reach. (Fallout 3 is also an unbelievably addictive game but I don't want to vote for a non exclusive here and it's still no Halo 3. )
Halo 3 is by far the best game ever made to date. It had everything from forge mode to an excellent theater mode. It was a game you could kick back relax and play for hours with a group of friends. No game can complete with the amount of laugh out loud moments or the fan base that this legend had.
Summing This Game Up In One Word Would BE As Simple As To Say This: Immense. Nothing beats Halo 3. Hopefully Halo 4 Will Be Better. The Story Is Fantastic. The Controls Easy To Understand and to play with. The Multiplayer ranking system unrivaled and Multiplayer gameplay classy and thoroughly entertaining.
I love Halo 3! While It is not my favorite game in the halo series, it's still great. It's amazing how Bungie made 3 critically acclaimed games in a row! And halo 3 is no exception! With good multiplayer and campaign, how could you not love halo 3? Halo 4 is best but I absolutely with no doubt, like halo 3 a TON!
Best FPS ever awesome multiplayer awesome gameplay and this in my opinion is the best X box 360 game to ever date man I love halo I have halo mega blocks all of the halo games and also the only X box 360 game that will beat this is halo 4 man halo is a awesome series I love love love love it!
Call of Duty his good, but there is no way at all that it would ever stand up to such a masterpiece. This is the reason why Xbox 360 had been sold so much to begin with. If anything, the only FPS Xbox game that may be able to stand toe-to-toe with it is the soon to be released Halo 4
The single best FPS in the history of gaming. The single most influential protagonist in the history of gaming. A storyline more creative than Fable, and action more enthralling than a Matrix movie. This is an near unbeatable game.
People complain that its not realistic, IT'S A VIDEO GAME, it doesn't have to be realistic, video games are meant to waste people's time until something real shows up for them to do, this game is an awesome shooter, people need to stop being whiny haters
Truely on of the best games you could buy, the third installment's online and campaign are amazingly well done, the online play is more than enough reason to go buy a 360 and XBL, Again one of The Best FPS games out there. A true "Must Buy"
when I clicked this list I somehow knew this was gonna be top, a let me just say this, if this game wasn't top I would have seriously doubted this site but there it is, thoroughly deserved Gold Medal for the greatest game on any console! - cunningstunts
It's really cool how the elites are on your side and the storyline is just out of its world! But honestly, I think that dead island would be a bit better because you can create modified weapons and has about the same graphics as this.
GEARS OF WARS I HAVE TO ADMIT
THATS A GOOD GAME BUT AFTER THAT SHOULD BE HALO3. I FREAKIN LOVE THAT GAME. THAT PROBABLY EXPLAINS WY I BEAT IT ON LEGENDARY THE 5 DAY I GOT IT.BUT HALO3 IF AWESOME. - JamieLynn
For me this is the Best game ever! Aside for Zelda this was even better than halo reach. Only thing I didn't like was that girl that always make me like, slow down or something. But overall this is an awesome game
This was an incredibly hard choice but in the end it will always be halo over CoD. In COD4 you have a distinct advantage being lvl 55 over lvl 1; which is only an advantage to people who live on the game.
Halo 3 has the best Halo campaign.
When you buy Xbox 360 you should buy Halo 3 as your
First Xbox game.
Epic Story (not like Call of Duty to kill only other People)
And fantastic multiplayer!
Halo 3 is a record breaking game, it is my absolute favorite multiplayer game of all time, best FPS of all time and easily best Xbox-360 game I have ever played.
It deserves no. 1.
Halo 3 is simply the best because it has that special something that makes me playing and enjoying it over and over again.
NO OTHER GAME has that, at least not among the 360 games.
By far the best game on Xbox 360, it defined the multiplayer shooter genre, not to mention an epic campaign with a great storyline and wonderful characters. Don't mess with the chief.
