I don't get how Yahtzee complain about not knowing the back story and complains about it suggesting it's somehow inconsistent.

Yet when talking about Half-Life 2 he makes no such complaint about the fact the back story is involved. Neither does he mention the wild inconsistencies between this supposedly mass infiltrated world of oppressive and intelligent aliens which somehow the player manages to escape only to end up in some bizarre zombie infested town before going on to rule over a colony of giant insects.

How on Earth could the story of Half-Life 2 be inconsistent? You freaking walked through it all! What inconsistencies were there?

How about the fact that a massive alien army from another dimension had taken over and built a giant Citadel in the middle of the city but a 10 minute drive out there's a backwater village that was hit by a zombie plague which the invading forces just seem to ignore.

How do you mean? The invading army turned the townsfolk of Ravenholme into Zombies using their rockets filled with headcrabs.

They caused the zombie outbreak, because it was easier than wiping out the town using actual troops.

Really when it comes down to it, inconsistencies can be based upon not telling the viewer and letting them eventually figure out the crap, or because people forgot to mention it. The issue comes down to the fact that whether you did it on purpose or not. A rather irritating inconsistency would be God of War, in which (SPOILER) Zeus was helping out Kratos a few tims, knowing what the outcome was to be in the first game, then in the second, he was going to destroy Kratos. Why the hell did he help him in the first place if he was going to kill him in the next?

That just doesn't make sense that a military might that could so easily take over would need to resort to using biology from another universe.

Anyway, that's not really what I was referring to, I was saying that complaining about inconsistencies in Halo 2 because you don't know the back story is nonsense. The same parallels can be drawn with Half-Life 2.

The Combine came out of nowhere. The headcrabs from Xen seem to make an appearance purely beca\use they were in the first game(s). Gordon Freeman is just suddenly dropped in this world with no explanation but everyone just seems to know who he is. I get that it's meant to be mysterious and believe there's some big goings on with time and inter-dimensional travel with the G-Man but I think it's all just posture, pretending to be like that because they haven't figured it out yet. Much like the series Lost, they're just clasping at straws.

Don't get me wrong, I like Half-Life 2, especially Episode 2 but I don't think its story matches even the low expectations of Halo 2's.

I like how Bungie said They were done with Halo after this title.
Now here it is 2009, and we have what 5 Halo games with a 6th on the way?
Way to go originality.
Why try when the fanboys will continue to re-buy the same stuff over and over.

So, I finally played Halo (1) a while back at a lan party. And I thought Yahtzee was wrong!!! It was so much fun. Once I left, got home and started the single player, I quickly realised it was only fun with my friends. So, good for lan, and that's all. Not to say it's really bad or anything. As Yahtzee said, average. And I would much rather play Far Cry 2 or Crysis or COD 4 or even UT3. The campaign mode! Yeah.

I disagree with you greatly on this one. Whilst it isn't perfect and is certainly cashing in on standard formula, the space opera aspect is awesome. You do need to play the first one and even the second really.

Brilliant. Personally I think he was being too nice to Halo 3 but I know that I'll never be able to convince people it's as bad as it really is.

whilst being an avid fan of the halo games i have to agree with yz halo is not genius it just ok not brill

seems like the word of the year ist "retarded"

Haha Dillon from Predator was the man! Great review.

I just re-watched this one, and he hit everything right on (my opinion). I always thought the weapons looked like toys, often making me think of my childhood, multicolored, squirt guns, it really DID feel like half the time you were listening to a little girl yell orders to you, the enemies were schizophrenic with the pseudo-seriousness mixed in with failed comedic relief thrown about, and it was like you had the guy from predator backing you up. Now that I think about it, the elites have the same mouth as the predators, so humanity had NO excuse to lose. And maybe Arnold Swarzenegger was underneath the Master Chef's armor with a voice modifier. That would explain everything.

the combine came from the portal that freeman opened in the first game although they didnt actually came throguh the same portal but they noticed the massive amounts of energy and came to earth now the combine are not the troops the advisors are the real combine the troops are modified humans they use as grunts the combine need living lifeforms to survive . now - everyone HAS to know about freeman because he killed the effin ruller of the xen world - nihilanth and has stopped the alien invasion so ever rebel trusts him to destroy the combine also now about gman my theory is quite unusual you might say i think that gordon is living only the action and important parts of his life hence the title half life as he arrives the same train from black mesa to city 17. now the other "imployes" of gman are barney and shepherd.

Doesn't really matter, Halo is aimed towards people who like Multiplayer.

Personally i hate competitive multiplayer and stick to singleplayer, but that's why i don't buy Halo games :p

lol if halo 3 would be on steam i would buy it thats why much more people buy pc games than xbox360 games because on pc online is friggin FREE!thats why i dont buy halo 3 halo series failed the singleplayer on the second halo the first was okay but nothing awesome really

That's a nice Beatles plate you got there!

i play hala3 4 1 thing the dam multiplayer its campain sucks

Ahh makes me laugh everytime I watch it XD

the story is amazing if you've beaten all the other halo games.i didnt find multiplayer that fun though. i think that forge was amazing though.

Gosh, it's about time! I thought I was the only one who hated halo.

Pretty glad this franchise is coming to an end now. - hopefully in hindsight, people who thought Halo was out of the ordinary will come to realize they were just caught up in the hype.

I enjoyed Halo 3 and played for awhile, but then I just got pretty tired of it. Modern Warfare 2 and now Black Ops is addictive because there's so much more to do. How if you may ask? Black Ops has more maps to play on, more arcades (like zombies, little mini game, and more) Including an amazing Campaign (which was short and random, but I liked it). Just looked back on this video - That's how much I enjoy watching Yahtzee's videos to go back in the beginning and watch it lol.

Guess this isn't the point of this video though, is it...Mmhh, but Bioshock was better in my opinion...not Bioshock 2 but pretty much the first one was scary in a startling sense while Halo 3 had little midgets running around be retarded (laughed hard at that). I don't know what I am even saying, just love these Yahtzee reviews...and I can agree with him on almost everything about a game. Only thing is - Everyone has an opinion on something and Yahtzee is entertaining us so why be so offensive? It's clear to me that people who will be offended by a game shouldn't even watch these videos - It's a critic review >_> What did you expect? No offense but I read some of these posts and they are "sensitive" toward this video for say.

EDIT: Also if you take my words to be "bad", please send me a message because I really don't want to offend anyone.. I'm a nice person and I was just stating is all, sorry sorry. Hope you all have a good day of course! ^_^

Haha, was worried I was going to be suspended! Thanks for the great greetings (Surprised someone noticed I posted a comment so quick) ...I want some candy badges lol. Like your icon it's a unique form of a flower.

Lol this caught my eye as well while cruising the site I was like who one earth is quoting on an old review

Why did you people make hi review this? There is a reason yahtzee only reviews REALLY good games, and less than average games! The reviews the bad games because the reviews are allways funny, and he reviews the REALLY good games to make a strong statement because if your constantly bashing games when you say that you really like something people tend to notice!

Well the thing is, you DO need all the back story to have the experience everyone else was having. Of course your going to hate the game if you ignore half of it. And why the fuck didn't he at least TRY to give the multiplayer a neutral review? Thats what reviewers are supposed to do when they don't like something. "I don't give a shit about multiplayer and neither do a lot of people" Is a really, really bad excuse to ignore a major branch of gameplay. And why the fuck is everyone complaining about the AI? I just drive the car, and the AI does a pretty good job at shooting everyone. Atleasat they gave us the option, even if the option is crap. This review barely even gave a single proper explanation to why he didn't like the game.

I don't know why you say goodbye, I say halo! Halo Halo!

Sorry.

Oh, and I completely agree with Ben "yahtzee" Croshaw.

i that i was alone in the world thinking the game IS overrated ()......()
