Halo 3 Review

Halo 3 is the third (and originally going to be the final) game of the series. It ended the original trilogy’s story with a bittersweet but satisfying conclusion. It’s also the first Halo game that I played in its entirety, and I’ve beaten it at least 10 times (and some levels such as the final …
