Halo 3While students around the country prepare to return to school after a long summer, Microsoft and Bungie Studios are preparing to drop a bomb on all gamers: Halo 3. Halo: Combat Evolved, the first game in the Halo series, was released in 2001 as a launch title for the original Xbox. That game broke sales records, and gamers had to wait over 3 years for the sequel, which also broke many sales records. Now gamers around the world will be able to participate in the epic last battle for human existence, and "finish the fight," on September 25th, 2007, in one of the most anticipated games of all time!
Master ChiefIf you aren't already caught up in the hype, the Halo series is a trio of first person shooter games based on warfare between humans and a group of alien races called the Covenant. The main character of the video games (there are also books, and a movie is planned) is called Master Chief, and he is a genetically enhanced and super-trained soldier. The game takes place sometime in the distant future, and the combat within the game is composed of high tech, futuristic war machines. Everything from the guns to the environments, from the characters to the armor that you wear on your body is futuristic and sci-fi. Halo 3 is the third and final (according to Bungie) entry in the story of Master Chief and the fight for human survival.
Whether you own an Xbox 360 or not, you're sure to hear about this game when it comes out, from gamers and non-gamers alike. If you own an Xbox 360, this game is a must buy... And if you don't own an Xbox 360, you're missing out, as Halo 3 is sure to break many sales records and create a giant following. Halo 3 is a huge hit waiting to happen, and the wait is over: Halo 3 is here on September 25th!
