I know I know, one review of Halo 3 Beta is enough, especially when it is from such a top notch writer such as myself on top of the sad fact that the Beta will be coming to a close very soon. Still, I did find this fairly new site, Games for Lunch, that will be review games based on the criteria of, ‘Would I play this game for more than an hour?’ A pretty basic, yet very good concept. The equivalent to other sites reviews “Lasting Appeal” portion of points, makes that the focus of his reviews. Also keep in mind the guy only plays the games for one hour before giving a review. Which, even for an RPG game, should give you the answer to the question of do you want to keep playing.
For the Halo 3 Beta review, you can see at the start he notices the little things, such as, “looking at your own shadow is freaking awesome!” A little over the half hour mark, you can tell that he is improving and exploring the weapons, “The feeling of zooming in on a guys face and putting a sniper bullet between his eyes as he charges blindly towards you is not to be undersold.” Keep an eye out on this site, gamesforlunch.blogspot.com as it is claiming it will have a review each day, right now, catch up on reviews for games such Crackdown and Pac-Man Championship Edition.
