    I think that games like Halo, people expect them to be fun and action-y all that jazz. I think it's included into the package of halo. "Is it a good game?" or "is it a good halo game?" they both provide different expectations, i think. GOOD GAME is a great game with everything we expect. HALO GAME is an awesome game that matches or is better than the last. that's what i think. Of course

    I've only played HALO I

    Fear and apprehension, I have not felt that in a long time in the Halo verse. I felt it today, I was moving through the streets as the rookie and spied in the distance a Hunter, and I felt fear. I was actually nervous to face the beast. That simple feeling of apprehension made me love this game.

    I totally agree w/ you about MW2 potentially having the same problem ODST has. i think one of the biggest additions to the game will be vehicles - a lot of people got angry at the navy SEAL part of the teaser video, also. when big name brand games like this try to branch out, there's always some resistance...

    btw, RHCP is awesome!

    Yes Halo is a good game, yes it has a certain amount of quality to it that many games don't have.

    Would we have found it boring or short if it were simply a game that isn't part of the Halo series? That's questionable.

    But I think it's easy to see that it doesn't warrant a full 5 / 5 with the main arguments in question, length, value (albeit a good value for some, many Halo 3 fans already have most/all of the DLC), available game modes.

    Again the games good, but it has issues that should prevent the game from getting the coveted 5/5 :D
