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.

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...

Halo 3: ODST Review [360]

 

Shock, horror - or was that shock trooper?

Great for Halo fans, great introduction to the ODSTs and a great feeling of familiarity. Not groundbreaking but definitely worth picking up.

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

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: ODST

 

Prepare to jump as Bungie's grittier, Master Chief-less war crash lands on Earth

More brilliant, clever combat ; Open-world hub fits perfectly ; A charming, character-filled plot ; Amazing on multiplayer

Less value for DLC owners

A seminal side story to one of the best FPS on console

Halo 3: ODST

 

Review: Epic warfare evolved

New flavour of play in the open-world Mombasa ; Firefight mode will consume you ; Epic

The shortest campaign so far ; No significant surprises for Halo veterans

A full-fat Covenant-killing romp. Who needs Master Chief?

Halo 3 Review

 

To say that Halo 3 is the most anticipated game of the year for many is most likely the understatement...

I cannot say enough good about Halo 3. Yes there are some minor flaws here and there, but only if you are looking to criticize. It was certainly well worth the wait and I am sure it will be enjoyed online for a very long time. The game box says “The...

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...
