    Hey! I just got a 360 a few weeks ago and have been loving it, loving Gears of War, and plan on getting Halo 3 tonight at midnight. Having never played a Halo before do I need to play the first two games to fully enjoy this game? Or is it something I can just hop right in? I'm getting it really for the mulitplayer which I hear is phenomenal, but I do intend on playing through campaign mode too.

    But I do care about the story, since I guess this is the last game right? And I don't think I could play through the first two in the next 6 hours. I know! I know! Gimmie a quick rundown on the events from the first Halo to where Halo 3 begins.

    The user has already been banned, no worries. As for Halo I would suggest on renting both Halo 1 and 2 and play through their campaigns to get a better understanding of what has happened etc. Unfortunately it has been too long since I played Halo. So I can't really fill you on in what has happened etc. However if you were to jump in and play the online multiplayer that should be easy. Oh and something else that just came to my mind is that usually in the instruction booklet there will be a small briefing of what has happened and how you got there for the campaign mode

    lucky this class im in we use computers so i was able to ban him quickly :)

    anyways multiplayer was made for noobs and vets to play and enjoy. single player is also noob friendly but there may be holes in the story if you havent played the first two

    Mitch slacking off in the first week of College.. nice :p

    As I mentioned above you should go ahead and rent both H1 and H2. Or search google for a review of both H1 and the H2 campaign. Oh and if you ever want to play when you pick up the game feel free to add my gamertag:

    Nice. I've been using my new Macbook for the past day. Must say I love it. Anyways I should get off. I have to get to my 5:00 class and the bus is usually late.

    Not to go further off topic..

    Would anyone be interested in organizing a H3 Multiplayer Campaign Mode here on Wii Chat? It would be limited to four spots only but if anyone is interested let me know and we can possibly set something up.

    I'd personally go read something about the storyline...better yet, i'll give you something to read.

    http://forums.xbox.com/14748829/ShowPost.aspx
    That will surely fill you in on anything (Including the novels) you need to know before Halo 3. There's also some videos with all the cutscenes from Halo 1 and 2 in there. So dig in! :wink:

    And i'd join you all on your offer, but at the moment the 360 isn't connected to the internet/Xbox Live or anything. I need a wireless router and adapter as my computer isn't anywhere near my 360...

    I just need to get live working now. I rented a console seeing as my brothers console died last night. However since I've been on I've been unable to connect to xbox live.. May be due to the fact that my wireless internet is connected to the same server...

    you are new to forums arnt you? i have yet to see a gaming forum that allows you to only talk about 1 console and nothing else. every PS3 forum ive been to has a 360 and wii section. every xbox forum i have been to has a wii and PS3 section and every wiiforum ive been to has a 360 and PS3 section. besides why come into the 360 section just to whine about people talking about something other than the Wii?

    =/ I just might trade in my Nintendo Wii and for a Xbox360 Halo 3 Edition and Halo 3 Legendary Edition Game

    But yeah to get the full story you have to play Halo 1 & 2, but still Halo 3 is fun fun fun

    I'm in the same boat as you Guinness only I haven't had my 360 YET..

    My step-father bought the Halo 1 + 2 games because he's got an x-box and he's completed them, I've played them breifly (mostly on mutli-player) but I never sat down and played through them all start to finish. So before I get around to playing the third one I was planning to sit down and work my way through the first two so I know the story line etc for the last one.

    There's also loads of other games I'm planning to play too so I thought I'd play a load of old ones that's been out for a while before starting the Halo Trilogy, then by the time I get around to playing Halo 3 I can pick it up for a cheaper price (hopefully).

    I say that now but I bet the day I buy the 360 I'll end up buying Halo 3 too lol =/

    Well hope this helps =]
