One of the highlights of the Games with Gold promotion since it was announced at E3 this year, was that Halo 3 would be completely free to download for Gold subscribers. As a triple AAA title on the Xbox 360 since 2007, you’d be hard pushed to find a hardcore gamer who doesn’t own this already – BUT – newcomers to the console in the last few years might never have had the opportunity to experience the Master Chief in pre-Halo 4 war times!
There are of course two ways to download: 1, check Xbox.com and queue it to your console for when you return home from work, or whatever else you’re doing… and 2, find it on the Xbox LIVE dashboard.
Halo 3 has a metacritic score of 94/100 hitting top reviews almost everywhere. You may find over the next few days that those with the game on disc already, may throw themselves online in reminiscence of the greater days of Halo gaming.
