    ha!! if a game with no multiplayer to speak of (mp3) can get an equal score to halo 3, the story mode in mp3 must be better.

    sorry if i sound a bit fanboyish

    well in a couple years halo 3 will still be the most played 360 game while a game like mp3 you only play through 1 or 2 times. when games are reviewed they take into consideration is it an online game or single player only game. single player only games are rated on a different level, bioshock got a 9.6 or .7, while halo 3 gets a 9.5. halo 3 is being rated against counter strike, call of duty, any other shooter that is online which is probably the biggest and most popular field of video games.

    true, but i still think the backbone of all review scores should be based on the main part of the game: story mode. The mode which isn't just a random battle or race or something, but the mode that actually has a virtual purpose.

    You've hit the nail on the head that a game should be reviewed mainly on the main part of the game. howevr with the entire halo series it has been the case that the multi player aspect makes up a larger portion of the game than the c\campaign mode. trust me i've logged over 500 hours on halo 2 on xbox live and theres unimaginably more to do in multiplier than ever in single player mode.

    Without a doubt, if MP3 had online, it would have surpassed at least Halo 3'S replayability score. which ultimately makes MP3 better, sorry.

    yeah your probably right i suppose halo 3 should be rated primarily on it's online, though i'd play a game with a good single player story over a game like halo 3.

    Except it didnt have online. So it sucks.

    Besides even if it did have online. It would have friend codes, which are a joke.
    It would have no voice chat, which is rediculous.
    It wouldn't be able to handle more than 4 players in one game.
    It would have only one weapon.
    It would have no vehicles
    The maps would be tiny.
    Only one playable character.
    No character customization.
    No clans.
    No ranking system/leaderboard.
    Shitelaods of lag

    Compared to Halo 3
    Voice chat
    Clans
    Huge ranking system and leaderboards.
    around 10 ground and air vehicles
    Play as multiple races
    Full armour customization (15 types) plus 10,000+ different insignias.
    Clans of up to one hundred members
    up to 16 players in one game.
    Mella attacks
    literally Hundreds of differnt game types

    Did i mention the forge?

    also saved films- 360 degree playback.

    different Weapon/equipment/grenade/ types in the 30s

    so yeah, in multiplayer Halo pwns Metroid right down to nothing im afraid

    If you don't know the game, then don't post those kinda posts, go learn a bit about it and then we'll see.

    read my post as before, this is rated differently than mp3 was rated. also if mp3 was online it wouldnt come anywhere close to what halo offers looking at nintendos online history. also, lets look at the games... mp3 was judged for a console that lacked extremely good titles so its a different medium. look at cod2 for the 360...it got a 9.0 just for the fact it was a launch title where the pc version got something like a 8.5.

    me too, but halo 1 was good, and halo 2 sucked because they just focused on online, so everyone loves halo 2 because it has such a good online play(which it does) which leaves me to think what will halo 3 be like. Everyone likes it because of the online. THats why it gets good scores. Gametrailers made a real shiity review because they just talked about how good halo is and how much they love it, and IGN has like a 17 minute review saying how much they love their 360 and halo 3.assholes.

    did you happen to watch the last couple of minutes? most video reviews are for big titles, so there is a lot to praise and then they say the reasons for it scoring the way it did at the end of it. for a game like halo there is more good things to say than bad things so why would you want a review of most/half bad things about it?
