Not the Epic end I hoped for. Great Multiplayer nonetheless...

I remember reading magazines a year ago that gave sneak peaks about Halo 3. One of the promises Bungie made to the fans was that Halo 3 was going to be a well fleshed out lengthy epic end to the series. However, it was neither lengthy or well fleshed out. The ending was a rip off of the first and the beginning didn't quite feel right.
Don't get me wrong! I love Halo, I'm in now was bias against it, but this game didn't live up to it's predecessors. It's kind of like Matrix Revolutions, the ending was just bland and anticlimactic.
Here are the Pros and Cons:
1: Multiplayer: Simply Halo is an unmatched online experience like no other. Rankings, Tournaments and Rivalries...where can you go wrong?
2: Gameplay: the Controls are still amazing. You have complete control over every aspect of your character.
3: Sound: Still has the top notch run and gun sound in past games. Turn on your 5.1 and say farewell to loved ones.
1:Story: As said before, the story was all over the place. The campaign didn't draw you in nor made you feel like you were in an epic battle for earth. The game over before it begins.
2: Graphics: Don't get me wrong the graphics in this game are great! But when your friend comes into your room and says "Why are you playing Halo 2?" kind of makes you realize the truth.
All in all this game is a Halo game and thankfully with it comes a great multiplayer experience. That alone is a reason to pick this game up. So look at it this way, the story mode is nothing more then a precursor to what you really should do with this game.....TAKE IT ONLINE!!!
