Some sources says it has sold about 8million
|Solid_Snake4RD (on 18 April 2010)|
@blu7x7 obviosly it has sold more on XBL,but we are only comparing its retail sales
|blue7x7 (on 29 November 2009)|
It probably has sold more in downloads. I downloaded it on my 360. Great game.
|Sash5034 (on 07 November 2009)|
This is still my favorite Halo game
|challis (on 23 June 2009)|
Groundbreaking, outstanding game.

|Vertigo-X (on 06 April 2009)|
I'd even go so far as to call this a classic... But then again, I just love this game that much. ;)
|SSSBOLIMAR (on 02 April 2009)|
best halo ever
|black7xxx7 (on 15 February 2009)|
great game one of the best fps out there
|Thechalkblock (on 21 January 2009)|
The best Halo.
|Xponent (on 14 December 2008)|
Definitely the best game in the series. Gotta love that pistol!
|FPSrules (on 01 December 2008)|
best in the series, campaign wise
|HALOOOOOOOO (on 17 November 2008)|
@Gingasaurus: Not to mention the great legs it had. In 2004 it sold 1.1 million copies, and was the 9th best selling game that year. Of course I think all the Halo 2 hype led to people wanting to check out what made the first game so good. Still, those are pretty good sales for being three years old.
|Gingasaurus (on 03 October 2008)|
I think word of mouth really propelled this game into the sales charts. I really don't remember any commercials for this before release.
|CaptainDJ (on 14 September 2008)|
I still play the PC version online.
|HanzoTheRazor (on 07 September 2008)|
10/10 Best in the series and 1 of the better shooters out there. I especially loved the music, vehicals, co-op and 2 weapons only limit.
|HALOOOOOOOO (on 11 July 2008)|
To StarcraftManiac - EGM did not give Halo 3 a 100% score. If you actually read the review, the scores were 10, 10, and 9. The first and second games got all 10s though. So yeah, I don't think those ads helped. The game probably would have scored higher without all the advertising bonanza.
The first game is the most legendary.
|Blacksaber (on 05 July 2008)|
Funny fact first time I played this I was about 11 or so and off course I walk into a dark place and an elite jumped out and I was scared of the game until I was 13 and loved it...
|The Mann (on 04 July 2008)|
|Strategyking92 (on 11 June 2008)|
halo is the best in the series
(I especially liked the pc version)
|Bagaren85 (on 16 May 2008)|
Best fps for console, remember the time. Outstanding then, still great now.
|zexen_lowe (on 16 April 2008)|
This game reminded me why I hate FPSes. Played it for 3/4 hours and I almost died of boredom. Pretty good soundtrack, though. 5/10
|StarcraftManiac (on 25 March 2008)|
9.6 or 9.7 is such a small difference... The difference is only 0.1... So people CAN like Goldeneye more then Halo... And Halo's ad-spendings by Microsoft surely helped the score... *cough* EGM gives Halo 3 100% *cough*...
But whatever, Timesplitters 2 is the better FPS in the 6th generation... For consoles. Overall it'd be Half Life 2... Followed by Timesplitters 2, Halo 1, Timesplitters: Future Perfect, Battlefield 2 and Halo 2.
|Daddo Splat (on 14 March 2008)|
I love the other people who point to golden eye and timesplitters thats a nice oppinion but critically speaking most would disagree! meta critic halo got a 97, timesplitters 2 got an 88 not sure if thats the game your referring to one other game had a 90 tops! Goldeneye 96 on metacritic!
Half life 1 and 2 both got a 96 thats combined average of hundred of reviewers halo was higher then all of the games you all name! So shut up already!
|Bagaren85 (on 01 March 2008)|
|Daddo Splat (on 23 February 2008)|
also goldeneye was great for what i was 4 player split screen on an n64 but the hugh maps and sniping and 16 player system link frag parties go pinch yourself!
What I find to be true is the guy who could kick all his friends butt loved golden eye more. I mean your competition is 3 other guys!
you take your learned skillz to live and get smoked and now that game sucks!
|Daddo Splat (on 23 February 2008)|
timesplitter isnt that great no story! its not the same type game as metroid prime so I wouldnt compare it! and the PC version was fun MP anyway I still have 4 copies for the pc! I wouldnt do it again for h2 though not gonna add vista anytime soon!
|StarcraftManiac (on 07 January 2008)|
Goldeneye > Timesplitters > Halo
|ITBobby (on 31 December 2007)|
Together with goldeneye - Best fps for console.
Great game, 9/10
|MrMarc (on 22 December 2007)|
Do not let Halo reflect any opinion of PC gaming - the port is GOD awful.
|leo-j (on 21 December 2007)|
PC GAMING SUCKS, I freakin have it for pc and the controls are so bad its not even funny..
|trestres (on 19 December 2007)|
This game is so inferior to MP, no words to describe how inferior it is...
|HALOOOOOOOO (on 15 December 2007)|
More like Halo >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Timesplitters.
Goldeneye is more legendary though.
I wish all these stupid people would stop rating it so lowly, it's the second-best console FPS ever.
|MrMarc (on 06 December 2007)|
Goldeneye > Halo
Timesplitters > Halo
Even regarding it as just a console FPS Halo is pretty poor.
|HALOOOOOOOO (on 05 December 2007)|
Why is this down in 43rd place? Seriously, this place is all Nintendo Fanboys to the f***ing max. Sure, there are a lot of great games for Nintendo systems, but Halo definitely deserves better than a lot of the ones ahead of it. Definitely more so than MP and MP3 (which is in 10th place! That makes no sense whatsoever).
|HALOOOOOOOO (on 10 October 2007)|
I agree with smee. I wish PC gamers would stop comparing it to PC games (unless you specifically mean the PC version) because most people only talk about the Xbox version. I mean come on, on a sixth-generation console you can't find a better FPS except for maybe Halo 2.
|Daddo Splat (on 02 October 2007)|
counter strike is online multiplayer only original halflife no vehicles and way to linear like playing a track game halo 1 also sold over mill on pc too. large weapon variety cars tanks ghosts wide open spaces way less linear then half life. I loved both games but halo is the best console shooter ever.HALFLIFE 2 copied halo by adding vehicles and the driving in half life 2 sucked. So quit already comparing the 2
|KeptoKnight (on 30 September 2007)|
lol...Comparing to the amount of First Person Shooter games to this day....Half Life/Counter Strike and Unreal Tournament are more fun to play than Halo. Halo IS an average FPS. Microsoft just spends ALOT ALOT OF MONEY and I mean ALOT on "advertisements for master chief".
They are trying to suck as much people in the game, when there are better First person shooter games out there hehe :) The ones that say they love halo...are obviously Blind Folded :)
--I have every single video game console since ColecoVision to date. Competed in plenty of tournaments especially first person games. But Halo lol is just a reg first person game.
|smee (on 27 September 2007)|
Brilliant game, lots of addictive fun, anyone who doesn't like this game has s**t for brains.
|Senbei (on 17 September 2007)|
Le meilleur shoot 128 bits !
|nathantay (on 05 September 2007)|
Amazing game that is still great to this day.
|cdude1034 (on 22 August 2007)|
kdw13- See: Goldeneye
|6SiX8 (on 14 August 2007)|
Very overrated FPS shooter that was supposed to come out for the PC but was dumb down for the consoles instead. Borrowed every idea from Half-life and wasn't original in the least. Why this game was so popular I'll never understand.
|kdw13 (on 14 August 2007)|
There is not a single Nintendo game that has the balls that this game had on release into the FPS arena. It is a masterpeice.
|Mini Moi (on 31 July 2007)|
Halo the best game in lan
|leo-j (on 29 June 2007)|
This game is awsome but replay value is low, thre is no online play, but still pretty fun.
