Halo 3: ODST  (Xbox 360) by Microsoft Box Art

Release Date
September 22, 2009.

Average Overall Score:
9.45 / 10

Halo 3 ODST is a stand alone expansion that gives more depth to the Halo universe and story; I just wanted to get that out there first and foremost. Halo3 ODST is unlike the other Halo games you have played and having a Halo game without the Master Chief in it almost seems like it wouldn?t be a Halo at all."

Overall: Bungie are back and once again bringing an ultimate game to our xbox's
Halo 3 ODST is a whole new spin off of the Legendary Halo 3, the game takes place just before the events of halo 3 and gives the player a better view of what really happened....
However, you play as odst soldiers and not the master chief, personaly i think this is really cool but this might not appeal some of the ultimate master chief fans as he takes a back seat in this super first person shooter.
The game its self is amazing as you once again dominate the covenant with new weapons and the new VISR mode, which lets you to see in the dark.

The Graphics on ODST are outstanding, however its a bit grainy when you are using the VISR mode.

The Gameplay is ofcorse amazing with the come back of the pistol and the ULTRA COOL SMG in your hands you are ready for any fight.

I only have 2 problems with this game;
1. unless you find the audiofiles (which is hard when you only have 1 left to get), you cant get around the map quickly which is a pain as everything is pretty spread out.
2. some of the achievements glitch which means you have to sometimes replay the campain 2-3 more times

Not only do you get a all new campain, you get firefight mode which although is great (killing insane amounts of enemy), it feels like a bit of a rip off of Gears of War 2......ohh well who cares about that its great fun alone or with three friends, also getting yourself past set 5 on heroic gets you one step closer to unlocking yourself a Shiny Set of famous Recon Armour for use in halo 3's multiplayer, which might i add is included with ODST. Yes, this extra disc gains you acsess to halo 3's multiplayer and already has every map pack preloaded on to it.

I would recomend that anyone that doesnt already have this game, leaves there house now and goes out and gets it as it is one of the best games this year. Unfortunatly for Bungie, Modern Warfare 2 is coming out soon so there is going to be some major competition out there.
