Ok, I know this is so typical me but went round to Tom's last night and his flat mate, Marcus, was one of lucky people to have registered to be able to play the Halo 3 beta.
Now, what I had heard so far had made me suspect it would be Halo 2 with some add ons so I did not have too high expectations and to a large extent thats right. BUT it was damn good fun. The game principle is still the same as 2 but the graphics are way way sharper, the movement and feel of the master chief is really smooth and the new weapons are very cool.
The return of the old machine gun from Halo 1 is very welcome but above all the new mounted machine gun rocks. Mainly because you can unmount it and walk aroun blowing people to hell. The landscape is also much improved with things blowing into bits with satisfying loud noices at the right moments which also helps the place feel a little more real.
If you didn't like 2 you probably won't like 3 but given how popular that was you can't hold it against Bungie banking on a concept that works.
