Halo 3

I got it over the weekend. Maybe I'll review it.

true but I hope it's a good game all the same, I just shelled out 63 € for it

I don't have many doubts on what I'm getting though

It's good so far, but I'm not a huge Halo dork so I won't be fawning all over its Haloness.

I doubt we have big halo fans here, we almost never hear of FPS on CG (compare to PES, Civ, Champ manager, Eve, etc.)

I'm expecting Halo 3 to be much prettier but to play very closely to th last one. It's good enough, the last two were pleasant experiences.

I generally like FPS but haven't managed to finish Half Life 2 yet and lost my save...

... but never really played them on consoles. Controls always used to suck too badly after keyboard + mouse.

Something I plan on touching on in my review, FPS on a console is a very tough thing to get right precisely because of the control difficulties in a console gamepad for shooters.

had a 30 mn run yesterday
Graphic are very pretty but not more impressive than GoW
It plays very naturally for a veteran of the series
And I get sea-sickness everytime I play a shooter for more than 30 mn

I know that feeling. I could only play HL2 through in short bursts. The vehicle portions were the worst part, motion sickness-wise

My copy should be arriving tomorrow - managed to pick up the collectors edition for £32.99 so I'm happy!

I got my 360 last week after selling the Wii. If anyone hasn't played Bioshock yet YOU REALLY NEED TO!

not compatible with my video card, and I'm not buying a different card because they dropped the ball in development

and it kills me to do that, because I was really looking forward to it

I've started the review. But the gist of it is, it's Halo. So however you felt about Halo 2, you'll feel about this. Nothing really new. Just a continuation of the story and mythos with some better graphics thrown in. MP is the same as usual. The Forge tool is pretty cool, but I won't have the patience to master using it.

So I would say it's a good game, but nothing to go insane over.
