I don't think any of the Halo games have aged well, but Halo 3 had a robust multiplayer package with forge mode. At the time, it was great.
Halo 3 recieved a rediculous amount of hype. Halo on the original XBOX was an amazing game that practically sold an xbox with every copy. Halo 2 came out and had changed alot. Campaign-wise it sucked horridly. Multiplayer-wise it was a fun experience on XBOX live but we could've done better. Halo 3 is a recycled Halo 2 with an even crappier campaign and same multiplayer with upgraded graphics and guns. All hype for nothing. Recieves an OVERRATED status.
It's ironic that one of the richest online gaming experiences is overrated. This is either a classic case of unreasonable expectations or maybe people just don't care about online anymore..
A great majority of people here whom believes Halo 3 was overrated makes me no longer feel like the disgruntled minority when it comes down to opinions. As an avid gamer, the first Halo was astounding but the last two iterations, Halo 2 and Halo 3 were not to grand. This is about Halo 3 so I will mention that the campaign did not answer any questions of the plot. The game play was been-there-done -that with little changed. This is a rental for me.
With as much hype as Halo 3 got, it's hard to be anything but overrated. It is a pretty quality game, although it has it's issues. I like it, it's just, you know... overrated. However, there is a chance that multiplayer will redeem it, in which case I may change my vote.
