Halo 3 is one of my least favorite games in the entire series. Including the Wars games.
The story is way too basic and empty after H2. It actually feels like a step back in scope, storytelling and depth of the story. A wrong knee jerk reaction to people not liking playing as Arbiter. The story did many characters dirty by reducing them to one-dimensional side characters. H2 gave every faction a reason by giving them 'faces'. Arbiter showed the flaws of the Covenant. Chief represented humanity slowly gaining an edge over the Covenant because they already knew more about the Halos. Gravemind made the Flood more than zombies. H3? Weird time jump and Covenant is bad again. Gravemind is just some tentacles.
H3's levels are fine...I'd just prefer more time on Earth before going to the Ark. Took Bungie until ODST/Reach to finally show an all out war for a planet.
H3's tone is weird to me. Everything is at stake, but the world looks a bit too vibrant and the Marines crack jokes constantly.
Multiplayer was cool. Just lacking in classic maps like H2 had. Also: waaaaay too much BR-only and The Pit.
It's not a bad game. Its just not what I wanted after waiting for it for 3 years after H2. ODST scratched the 'fight for Earth' fight better for me. Reach gave me the vibe I wanted H3 to have (from looks to tone of the story).
And yes: H3 does rank higher than 4 and 5. No worries about that!
- Sprint is fine.
- H5's multiplayer is awesome.
- The Forerunner books are meh.
