I just got my 360 a few months ago so don't flame me! So I want to know a few things about it. Is the story good? Does it deserve the praise it's getting? Are the novels and comics good?

I'm thinking of downloading the first one off of Live.

Halo is an amazing franchise and the story is very deep. Prepared to be overwhelmed a little bit at times. Halo Reach is gonna be revolutionary.

Truthfully...I never did like Halo 3.... only when I was with friends but I guess its because I never played enough to get into it.

Buy Halo 1 & 2 on eBay (prolly like $5-$10 each), and then get Halo 3 & Halo Wars on eBay (prolly $15-$20 each) and buy Halo 3 ODST.....then you will be up to date with the story. Each Halo game has been progressively more awesome!

I see. Well Metal Gear Solid has a deep story. Am I crazy... uh no. I just usually play online multiplayer on Halo... XD... to me that is Halo at its core. But the story is really good.

Well, I personally am not too keen on the story myself. I suppose it's because I'm not really a sci-fi fan but the story is really deep. I think the load of novels and graphic novels pretty much prove that. xD

But yeah good point about metal gear solid. It does seem to have a deep story from what I've seen but I don't reckon it's so vast as Halo's. I play mainly on the multiplayer of Halo too. Wink

to clarify how deep it is let me say this, it's a next gen starwars, and my god we no how deep star wars is, though i know halo has a great STORY, but people say that the half life series, which is good, has a better story, to me no, just better STORY TELLLING, which is still epic to this day,

Metal gears solid has a deep sotry,but is very complex.Halo has a deep story that isnt complex and everyon can jump into.

Dont judge the Halo story from Halo 3.Play the other Halo's.Halo 3 had a good story but moslty concentrated on multiplayer.Play halo 1 and 2 before halo 3.Halo odst and Halo wars also make the story much more deep.

Then tell me the story isnt that great.
