As one might expect, Gunstringer is a bang-em, shoot-em up game. The thing w\/ this is that it uses the Kinect & not a traditional controller. I've had it for almost a week as I write this, & have gone thru a couple missions.\n\nThe Good: interesting use of, well, you, as the controller. Your left hand moves the guy & your right hand actuates your weapon (you literally move your hand in a gun-recoil fashion). You can also play this seated, so you don't have to be standing the whole time. Clever display of the story - you are the puppetier (sp?) in a stage show w\/ live people in the audience as you go thru the adventure. There's a voice-over commentator talking the whole time & his comments relate to what\/how you're currently doing. Very unique.\n\nThe Bad: fairly one-dimensional in the play. Though scenes & enemies change, the game is basically the same thing over & over. You are either running & shooting stuff, running & jumping over stuff, or hiding behind something & jumping out to shoot stuff. I personally like more diversity in my games in terms of varying things to do. The hook w\/ this is obviously the Kinect portion, but the novelty gets a bit thin after a few missions & left me wanting a bit more. Maybe my Kinect isn't set up in the best way (on top of wall-mounted TV), but I have some issue w\/ getting the system to register my firing action consistently.\n\nSummary: good, not great. If I could go back in time & do it over knowing what I do now, I would not pay top dollar for it. Wait for it to go to the bargain bin ($20 seems to be the magic number for older game titles), only then would it be worth the investment.
Unlike other game sites, the game came without a scratch. Nothing was damaged, and every care was taken to deliver.\n\nExcellent game! I've been waiting for it to decrease In price for so long! My patience has been rewarded! Having Purchased the Halo Reach(TM) special Edition from them also!
This is a great addition to the halo collection. Absolutely beautiful graphics and game play.\nAlso the loading was very smooth and did not freeze the game as the last two halo games have. The only problem in my mind was the very short campaign, it really only took 6 hours to complete the game and for the price you pay it is hard to justify that short of a game when for the same price you can get games that will last 40+ hours gameplay on the first run.
Halo 3 is a game that takes place in the future, and the object of the game is to save mankind from the covenant. In it, there are many types of technology that are used. It seems as though halo 3 predicts that sometime in the future, technology will evolve in many ways. It suggests that weapons, armor, vehicles, and computers will all be upgraded far beyond the capabilities of today. Halo 3 conflicts with scripture in several ways, including violence and mild profanity. I enjoyed this game very much and I would recommend it to others because it has a captivating plot, characters that seem real, and fun gameplay.
All of the action-packed combat and thrilling gameplay from the video game version, plus all-new enhancements for play on the PC.
What our shoppers say:
Great game! Best game ever created in my opinion!
I now own 5 copies of this game. Why? Cause now I can connect over Internet and LAN and play with my friends and family! Especially the added downloadable feature of Halo Custom Edition which allows the ability of playing user-created maps... which is totally invaluable! Have been playing this game for over 10 years and I can STILL sit down and play it for hours :-)
They don't make games like this every year. Coop and single players alike will enjoy this game even those not wanting to jump tight online in vs will like playing against bots to learn maps and gun placements. Can't go wrong with this game.
