I'm one of of those that thinks Halo is way over rated, yeah i had Halo 1 & 2 and beat them both and they were really great shooters, but to me, no better than other FPS shooters out there.
I admit Halo set the foundation for all others but , when ya' think about it, the multiplayer is what everyone really loved and now those are a dime a dozen.
As for the single player campaign it was really good but not this in depth phenomenal master piece everyone hails it to be.
I thought Metroid Prime 1 & 2 were much deeper, involved and challenging games, both the single campaigns were longer then the Halo's and much more vast with lot's more areas to explore and items to collect, thats how i judge the quality of a good shooter by the single player campaign to see if it has the depth, challenge and vastness of the world surrounding you.
So while, unfortunately the majority of game fans are reserving their Halo 3's
i'll be reserving my Metroid 3.
What about you guy's ?
