Halo 3 is...pretty. That's the best way to sum it up. The game takes full advantage of the XBox 360 hardware to make the graphics really stand out. As far as the game goes, to my unpracticed eye (as I mentioned in my previous post, I'm not a big FPS player) it looks about the same as the previous incarnations of the product. But it sure looks nice. Check out this video from gamespot comparing the three versions of the game:
Of course, good graphics alone do not (in my opinion) make a great game. You should be able to ignore the graphics and have fun, even if the graphics are the most simple and crude things around. I haven't experienced enough of Halo 3 to render a verdict on the quality of the gameplay. But judging by the sales, I'm guessing it doesn't really matter.
