Halo 3: ODST

 

And it's here, on the streets of New Mombasa, that ODST shows its first major move away from previous Halo games. Unlike other Halo games that throw you through a series of missions in a linear fashion, ODST opens up New Mombasa for exploration. The...

Graphically, the game doesn't hold up quite as well. It's true that the models move fluidly, and they're decently enough crafted, but there is very little wow factor going on here. Aliens jump around, projectiles soar, things explode, but there's...

Review: Halo 3 ODST

 

The Halo games have been the flagship franchise for the Xbox family since the first Halo: Combat Evolved shipped way back in 2001. It has been synonymous with high quality production values, quality gameplay and outstanding multiplayer experience. Does...

Intense action sequences combined with semi-stealth gameplay ; Well told story with believable characters in a fleshed out world ; Firefight Mode will suck away hours of your life ; The silenced pistol

Recycled Halo 3 multiplayer ; VISR display goes wonky for too long when taking damage ; If you don’t have Xbox Live, you’ll be missing a lot ; Where’s the Flood

Recycled Halo 3 multiplayer VISR display goes wonky for too long when taking damage If you don’t have Xbox Live, you’ll be missing a lot Where’s the Flood?

Halo 3: ODST

 

Firefight is truly awesome. They have obviously looked at the success of Horde found in Gears of War 2 and the inclusion of Nazi Zombies in Call of Duty: World at War and thought 'Wow. We must get something similar in our Halo series, somehow'....

Firefight is outstanding / + hours of gaming; More Halo (albeit minus Master Chief); New maps and Halo: Reach BETA code

No matchmaking in FireFight; Campaign is on the short side; Too dark at times throughout campaign

Keeping the same basic engine as Halo 3, ODST will feel and play as expected for any fan of the series. Some minor things have changed however as you can't duel wield your weapons, and the grenade throwing mechanism seems to have changed a little, as I...

Halo 3

 

Every year there's that one pop culture event that seems to change the entertainment landscape. Generally it's some sort of movie or book, but regardless of what it is you know that people will be talking about it ad nauseum for months to come. Even if...

Regardless of whether you buy this game to finish the fight or play online, you're going to have a great time playing Halo 3. It's almost impossible for a game with this much hype to live up to expectations, but it's clear that Halo 3 is able to pull...

Halo 3

 

For three years, Xbox gamers the world over have been waiting. The end of Halo 2 was a cliffhanger of epic proportions. As the Master Chief's final words echoed on televisions across America, so did player's screams of indignation upon the realization...

Halo 3 Review

 

TVG finally finishes the fight - a zero-hype, no nonsense take on what Microsoft no doubt believes is the biggest game of 2007...

A wholly compelling multiplayer experience ; Four-player co-op Campaign ; Finally - Halo on Earth (largely)

A disappointing Campaign ; Visuals that let down the flagship Xbox franchise ; Unfounded reason for Bungie's pretentiousness

The fight might well be finished but like the end to any war, Halo 3 isn't pretty. One of the top multiplayer experiences available on any console (as expected) redeems a largely disappointing Campaign, but even that doesn't change the fact that the...

Halo 3

 

Little information is being released about the multiplayer, but what information we have heard is magnificent! First of all is the new matchmaking system. Halo 3 will be keeping the matchmaking system from Halo 2, giving each player a level between 0...

Most recently, soldiers in Iraq have been given a chance to test out Halo 3, much to the annoyance of the public, who are tearing at the seams with excitement of playing the game. Judging by their reactions, Halo 3 is coming along swimmingly and as far...

Halo 3 Standard Edition (NTSC)

 

Multiplayer, 1-4 Co-op, Interface, Sound

Checkpoint save slow down, short campaign

To put it bluntly, Halo 3 is a must have title if you own an Xbox 360. The multiplayer ingredients of this game give it the most playtime and longevity of any game to date, hands down. This coming from a gamer whom is not an avid Halo fan (though I own...

Halo 3: ODST

 

An enjoyable romp through the Halo universe, ODST is targeted strictly at fans of the series who may be able to overlook its faults.
