5 stars for being a big literary fag

Multiplayer is pretty much the entire point of the game. Most of the "great" reviews were very critical of the campaign and several noted marking -down- the score because of it.
Yahtzee is always entertaining, though.
Yup, right or wrong, he is one funny fucker.
Multiplayer might be good. I don't feel like wading through a forest of 6th graders constantly calling every living creature present a fag at the top of their lungs to find out.
Actually, scratch that, I played Halo 2 multiplayer and unless this game is drastically different, it's not all that special. Amusing, but not nearly enough to warrant all this hype. If there's a grand hierarchy of multiplayer fun it ranks somewhere in the middle, with four-player Smash Bros. where everyone is at roughly the same skill level being the gold standard, natch.
The Half-Life games remain the only FPS's I can stand to play for any extended length of time. Of course I haven't tried Bioshock yet.

You may be an elitist fedorah-wearer, Yahtzee, bu yout're a funny elitist fedorah-wearer.

Best game reviews ever.
|theSnake - 2007-10-05 |
Is this the only man alive willing to objectively review games and actually say bad things about them without fear of not being showered with free swag and trips and bullshit?
|Xiphias - 2007-10-05 |
I hope someone writes a huge long argument about this
Xiph, you are a goddamned prophet.

Not being PC FPS fag anymore, Halo 3 is better than alot of the PC FPS which is pretty much where all the Hate is coming from. Anyway Halo3 tight, enjoyable gameplay puts Bioshock's buggy and lame electroshock everything to shame, oh the A.I is a pile of shit compared Halo's enemy A.I.
Summary:- Halo brings the gameplay, Bioshock brings a storybook.
This paint must be some kind of lead and mercury paint.
Wow, so much hate. It really does get on your tits that people can and do enjoy playing Halo. I marked down the video because it's criticism of game is nothing but pure hate without even trying to enjoy any part of it, and so it's become the battle cry for halo-haters and damn anyone for voicing an opinion on liking the game, because they must be wrong.
I'm a "Halo-hater" and I've enjoyed pretty much every minute of any Halo game i've ever played. Including the times I got destroyed by all and sundry.
Go figure, as y'all are stereotypically want to say...
aw, I want a set of "Rage Against the Dying of the Light" finger paints!

FUN FACT: Zero punctuation is becoming as hyped as halo.
Nah, he's full of it as well, but that's O.K with me.
|StanleyPain - 2007-10-05 |
This would have worked better had it been a slightly more substantive criticism of the game rather than just an "edgy" dismissal of it. Note in his Bioshock review how it's a more intelligently presented criticism of what he thinks is fundamentally wrong with the game, spoken like someone who played it and experienced its flaws. Here, he just sounds like a Halo hater who didn't even really touch the game.
Unmerciful Crushing Force
He goes into detail about the length of the game, the flaws in the AI, the difficulty of the game and basically says that it's simply "Meh."
A tad mean, but he has a point: the game isn't spectacularly different from its predecessors.
Halo had no single-player campaign until the buyout, and it really showed in the original. They improved, but somehow could never really overcome that. Local multiplayer can still be a blast though, if you can't set up a real LAN for a better game or anything.
One thing I cannot argue with, the NPC AI is something Bungie should really REALLY be ashamed of. If any of you out there have not played Halo 3, this review is NOT an exaggeration. In fact, I should save the Theater replay of the second Scarab mission where I basically spend most of the mission wondering where the fuck my driver is taking me. At one point, he drives completely away from the commander talking to me, all the main action, and goes almost to the beginning of the level, only to get stuck on a rock.

Um...the games fun...doesnt that make it good?
Fun is no longer an issue. Especially here, so I'm told.
I enjoy shitty music. That doesn't excuse the shittiness.
So no. Halo is still boring and overrated.
|kingarthur - 2007-10-06 |
Its just a game.
Also, based on the following, I'm convinced that Finger Paints is actually Casey Serin::
"Wow, so much hate. It really does get on your tits that people can and do enjoy playing Halo.

Because that sounds just like Casey Serin.

3 stars, not because he'd dissing Halo (which I like), but because he just wasn't particularly funny about it this time. "MASTER CHEF NEEDS ODOR EATERS!!!!111 LULZ"
|j lzrd / swift idiot - 2007-10-18 |
Played the first one.
HEADCRABS FROM HALFLIFE IN DISGUISE. BIG RINGS IN SPACE THAT MAKE THINGS DIE SOMEHOW. ENEMY MIDGETS RUNNING AROUND SOUNDING AND ACTING LIKE RETARDED EWOKS. NPCS BEING PANTS-ON-HEAD RETARDED.
And apparently not much has changed. Thank you Yahtzee.
|tamago - 2007-11-04 |
I could have sworn I rated this already.
Five stars since I am not a fan of the Halo series at all.
My hate for the Halo series comes from two sources: Not being impressed one bit when I played the game and the sweaty fanboy love everybody seems to have for the series. See also: Napoleon Dynamite.
|gron - 2007-11-04 |
pants-on-head retarded is my new favorite description of something.
|Rinon460 - 2007-11-05 |
First things first. The game is not bad because it's associated with Microsoft. Microsoft does not equal garbage. They did not even make the game. Bungie did. Micro only published it.
On with the counter strike!
Headcrabs? No. Bungie's Marathon Infinity came out before half life. It's the flood.
Inconsistent? Switching things up is a bad thing? Follow one theme, it's boring. Change things, and it's a schizophrenic.
Bright colors? So? Things look alive, not made out of plastic.
You didn't even touch on the excellent sound design.
Midgets? An 8 foot tall brute is a midget?
Arbitrary placement of alliances? You really do need to check the back-story.
AI being bad? Well, yea... but only friendly drivers. Even then I've had some good experiences with that. But wait, you lied any way. WTF were you doing getting out of the warthog WHILE BEING SHOT AT BY A TANK? I know why, you didn't. You needed an excuse to bash the game.
Weapons made by Mattel? Have you even LOOKED at the weapons? Even then, they're WEAPONS for God's sake! Ever seen a 2 yr old with a shotgun? No. If you have, call social services.
You say the game is schizophrenic; always changing it's theme. But then you say it's monotonous. Make up your mind.
I hope that some people will see that this review means nothing. In his bioshock review he even says he never gives good reviews because "pplz don'tz likes zit wens I sez I likez ah gaym". So then he makes up cheesy ways to say it sucks.
DO YOU LIEK FALL OUT BOY?
Never listened to em.
Gee, someone who has signed up and dissapeared only to one star a video that doesn't give Halo 3 a blowjob. You must have a dire existence on the internet. Go outside.
who said i disappeared? And i'm just stating the facts, not flaming, like you just did.
Hi. You're a big big queen. Stick that in your cap, Princess!
who would expect less from a guy named Cap'n PROFAN!TY.
no. i just hate it when game reviewers get their facts wrong, and especially hate it when they don't review the entire game.
come on! some one make a valid point to challenge me! I love a good debate. All I've gotten is PS3 fanboys spitting insults who don't realize that I like Halo AND PS3. I guess Xbox isn't the only console with screaming 12 year olds...
PS3 fanboys? Where do you think you are?
Does it matter? And to answer the question, I'm in front of my computer. Fancy that!
I stopped taking it personally when someone disliked what I liked when I hit my sixth year.
i haven't taken anything personally. I just love starting arguments.
Claiming that they enjoy starting arguments is how people who take things personally try to deny it.
seriously, i want someone to make a valid claim against my arguments. I'm waiting for you.
Why? Its funnier to let you stand in the cold waiting to defend wealthy game companies who don't know or care about you
says the person who keeps replying to me when i post. Your pathetic. Your defending a guy named after a board game with a bad british accent who hates almost every game he plays. Word to yahtzee, if you hate video games, don't play em.
"says the person who keeps replying to me when i post. Your pathetic. Your defending a guy named after a board game with a bad british accent who hates almost every game he plays. Word to yahtzee, if you hate video games, don't play em."
Where does it say I'm taking the review personally? The review doesn't mention my name, last time I checked.
It looks like you're taking MY responses personally, as you keep coming back.

I think this guy Simon560 is for real, not a troll. Also, I'm betting 10 to 1 odds he's in a Halo clan.
|Random_Hajile - 2007-11-17 |
Yahtzee may be mean, but he's 100% right.
|Ahriman the Creepy Lurker - 2007-11-29 |
Halo is Ringworld, but with frat boys masturbating in your ear. And guns, I guess, and an army man who moves slower than a fatty on a Rascal.
I love it when a topic makes mongoloids out themselves.
whats a mongoloid?

Seriously, this video was here for about a year, then suddenly this Name### guy shows up. This is why we need post dates on PoETV comments; less necromancy.
|Caminante Nocturno - 2007-12-11 |
I owe Yahtzee a lot for exposing me to that song he uses at the end.
|seriouslyuguys - 2008-02-02 |
Five stars for "finger quoting Margo".
