Halo 3 is certainly a great game with interesting storyline, which holds the player during gameplay. Halo 3 provides features unavailable in previous versions.

In addition to this the graphics and soundtrack and soundtrack are also excellent.

Thumbs Down:

Although the whole game is indispensable but there are some small faults. One thing is that although the option of rewinding of save gameplays is available, yet it does not work the way player expects. Online mode is very slow due to large number of players. Al-controlled marines in t he game may disappoint you while you are expecting some help from them. These flaws are small but are completely dominated by the positive points of Halo 3.
