ok, when you dive onto the helicopter at the end... and Jack says "you owe me a boat"... and doyle says "i think we can do a little better than that" and slides him the little box... they dont show whats in the box, Jack opens it, but then the camera moves to the side... so you never see whats in it.... is it the cure for jack?... i thought it was, but i dont understand why they wouldnt show it... they make it look like its secret...

I assumed it was a box of money. Why would Jack think the cure is worth his boat? They should give him the cure for free since they got him "infected" in the first place. Besides, does Jack really want to be cured? He has some awesome powers... not sure I'd want to give them up!

This ending was about as good as the PC version...

oh yea, and the box... i dont see why it would be a box of money, doyle was like.. carrying it for his life while you were protecting him... i just dont know what it was, it could be a box of money... i thought that or the cure... but still... that box is small. it wouldnt carry enough money for me to be satisfied... HAHa... i dont knwo, they should have just showd it... OR they were trying to pull a "cliff-hanger ending" like halo 2...

I think that in the box was an XBOX 360 and a preview copy of Halo 3.

That would make up for all he had been through. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Personally I thought the ending was lame. So Jack goes through all this stuff on the island, trying to escape/kill Crow/Krieger, and then he jumps on a helicopter at the end and LAUGHS? Are you freaking kidding me?

I'm returning this game, I'm so disappointed.

Not many people liked the ending of the PC version either, so my reply is sarcastic....I didn't really like the ending.

IMO, the whole story line had huge gaps and was difficult to follow and there seemed to be at least 2 levels missing...

I like the idea of the xbox360 with a preview copy of Halo 3! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Maybe it was the deeds to the islands... Now Jack is the proud owner of a mutant infected island chain....

Ive watched the ending a few times and have come to the conclusion that the box does not have money in it. The girl said the gov was going to re-emburse him for his boat, and I would asume they would pay him for his troubles as well.

The reason he laughed was because he was so worried about his boat that he didnt think about curing himself until buddy (Doyle i think) slides him the cure. There were no other cures but that one, and seen as Jack got doyle and the girl to safty, they had to make sure they had a cure for him. Anyways, he laughs because the gift is a good start to him getting re-payed, and he wasnt expecting him to just slide it over.

Was it an amazing ending? Not the best Ive seen, but as of late, its better then the last few ubi games Ive beat.

(I like the 360 with H3 demo idea tho...that made me spit sprite out my nose) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

No, I think they would've done it sooner like this:

Jack : *standing on sandbar*
Jack : "****, they blew up my boat!"
Helicopter: *flys next to Jack*
Helicopter: *gunner drops halo 3 and xbox360*
People In Helicopter: "Surprise!"
Jack: "Oh! You guys!"

The ending is the set-up for the sequel.

Just like the Halo 2 ending, GET OVER IT.

I figured out what really is in the box after watching my wife finish the last few levels.

Remember the one level where Val catches the scientist trying to escape with the box full of mutant juice to sell on the black market? Well it's the same box!

Mystery solved! A box full of mutant juice on the black market is worth billions! More than his boat, the xbox360 (with halo3) and the islands combined! It also leaves the story wide open for a sequel.

It also fits with laughing...
