Halo in 5 Minutes

Halo in 5 Minutes (sort of)

If you were planning on getting a pre-owned copy of Halo 3, or picking up ODST, and have never touched the series before, I highly recommend you click :)

Meh, I've always though Halo just a first-person shooter, a very good science-fiction first-person shooter, but I never gave it an A for it's story, or progression of that story. ODST is supposed to change up that formula though from what I read in Game Informer.

Halo's story isn't so great anymore... the universe of it is good quality sci-fi, but the plot and direction of Halo 2 and 3 isn't as good as it could have been.

If you want to play Halo for its storyline, I highly recommend Halo: Combat Evolved :) comparing Halo 1 to the rest of the series is like comparing Alien to Star Trek.

Sci Fi just must not be my genre because when I tried to read the Halo novels that were so highly praised I just found myself bored. I am kind of meh about Halo.

Drowning it in science made it a crawl in areas. I couldn't even finish the third book.

Never been the online gaming type and I just couldn't get into Halo back then, going back and playing it now I might be able to appreciate it.

Yeah there was that and then there was the fluff, the slow down, the dragging explanation. I mean I tried to be non-biased because I'm not really the biggest XBOX fan. But I honestly couldn't get behind it. Which isn't saying much, I love Metal Gear but the novelization of it is terrible in comparison.
