It will never ever be a true opponent of Halo 3, no matter how good either game will be. The Halo franchise is too strong. However, it seems to be shaping up into a rather cool game.

what? halo came out of nowhere and didn't even do anything special. it's hardly a universal institution.

Yes, but it's still a huge franchise.

Haze looks cool...and kindas reminds me of Crysis in the process. Though I doubt it has aliens in it.

Considering it's some of the people that did Goldeneye and Perfect Dark before leaving Rare it has much promise. ~tima

It has promise... I don't much care for the look if it (so far) though.

Same here. The main character and the other Mantel soldiers have the typical "bad guy"/stormtrooper look (thought it's certainly cool looking), and aren't very organic looking for universal soldiers. Maybe that'll tie in somehow, but something that is always a foundation in the character design of these kinds of games is the individuality of the protagonist.

I did like the trailer, though. If that indicates anything, the story will at least be good. And the multiplayer "objective-based maps" thing sounds neat.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Looks good, reserving proper judgement until I can see some in-game footage though...

When Halo did just that, there was no real competition on the console market. Now there is, and Halo is amonhg that competition.

That's why you should buy a 360 to play it on.  ;D
