I have my reservations about halo3 too. The ending to halo2 was the most annoying ending to a game in recent memory and the limited edition dvd was rubbish, I mean do I really want to see the developers playing volleyball? The game was funish but I think they broke the balance of the game with the battle riffle that could only fire in bursts and the grenade launcher just didnt seem to work that well. Maybe it was added for the multiplayer, a weapon that it takes a while to master, but in single player I rarely used it. Halo 3 will probably get great reviews, sell by the truck load and I probably will cave and get it but I’m not expecting it to be anything more than a nice distraction for a weekend.
