Trivia

1001 Video Games

Halo 3 appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Multiplayer maps

Several maps from Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 have been subsequently remade for Halo 3. These include:
  • Blackout: a remake of Halo 2's Lockout
  • Heretic: a remake of Halo 2's Midship
  • Last Resort: a remake of Halo 2's Zanzibar
  • Cold Storage: a remake of Halo: Combat Evolved's Chill Out
Additionally several previous maps have been tweaked or "re-imagined": Avalanche is a re-imagination of Halo: Combat Evolved's Sidewinder and Valhalla is one of Halo: Combat Evolved's Blood Gulch and Halo 2's Coagulation.

References

There's a number of Hollywood actors who lend their voices to supporting characters in Halo 3. The team from Red vs Blue provide a comical moment during the second main mission of the single player campaign. You'll hear two of the well known voice actors from the online show arguing over a 'let me in' moment by a doorway and, depending on the difficulty setting, the voice overs change.

References to the game

The game is referenced in the season finale (both episode 8 and 9) of the first season of the 2008 US TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Especially in Episode 8 it is in view for about one minute.
