Halo 3: ODST (Xbox 360)

 

You wake up all alone in a hostile city. Pockets of enemies are hiding in the nearly pitch-black environment and your allies are nowhere to be found. In the opening moments of Halo 3: ODST, you are vulnerable and aimless--two elements that have never...

Halo 3: ODST

 

The newest iteration of Microsoft's Halo doesn't leave you much time to catch your breath; Halo 3: ODST literally drops you right into the action. In terms of the Halo timeline this game sits right between Halo 2 and the events of Halo 3. In ODST, you...

New multiplayer options. Different weapons. New main character

Some environments are too dark. Not a big departure from Halo 3 in campaign mode

Halo 3: ODST is a prequel to Halo 3, but with plenty of tweaks to the original game and new multiplayer options, this first-person shooter still feels fresh.

The Halo franchise continues to deliver. Ok Before I get into the nitty gritty of this review, before I tell you guys what it's like to drop in to this...

Fresh ideas in the story mode ; Firefight is a blast ; Music is beyond amazing ; Halo Reach Beta

Engine is showing its age ; Nav system needs more work ; You start to not care about the open city as the story progresses

Halo 3: ODST

 

The Halo saga continues with this beefed up expansion pack that gives gamers a chance to play as an ODST. Are you prepared to drop (and to read our review)?

On one hand, Halo 3: ODST is a no-brainer purchase for fans, thanks to the new story and the addictive Firefight mode. It’s a classically fun Halo experience but on the other hand, if you’re looking for something truly different or innovative, you...

Halo 3: ODST

 

Microsoft's flagship franchise, Halo, is a franchise that really needs no introduction... usually. This isn't your traditional Halo title though and the naysayers that claimed Bungie couldn't pull off a Halo title without the super soldier Master Chief...

Bungie’s latest storytelling method in ODST is certainly unique and captivates the imagination from beginning to end, but the problem is, just when you really start to get going, the experience ends. The single player campaign is far too short and can...

Halo 3: ODST

 

After tearing open the cellophane wrapper of the package, I dropped Halo ODST into my Xbox 360 and started up a solo campaign on Heroic difficulty. Why Heroic instead of Legendary? My past experiences with the Halo series have told me that Heroic will...

VISR system ; Mood and ambiance set by music and lighting ; No Flood ; Best Halo campaign to this point ; Full Halo 3 multiplayer suite, including DLC maps ; You can haz Reconz (if you work for it)

VISR doesn't work during the daylight ; People that bought DLC maps will feel ripped off ; Firefight mode doesn't support matchmaking

I enjoyed this game. The single player campaign was well polished, and I enjoyed it more than any other Halo campaign. It gives a different aspect to the series, and I would love to see more games in the ODST series. The campaign didn’t drag (read: no...

Halo 3 ODST Review (Xbox 360)

 

There always seems to be a little madness surrounding a launch of a Halo game, but this time the madness seems to be more centered around the price of the game. It's like many reviewers went into the game not to play it, but evaluate it on price. For...

Halo 3: ODST is finally here, but is it a full fledged, self standing game?

"...some unnecessary inclusions detract from an entire package with an unjustified MSRP."

You are not the Master Chief

New Hub Level Design; Great Voice Acting; Strong Story

Not much new
