Features:

New Campaign, New Hero, New Tactics:

Much more than an expansion, Halo 3: ODST allows players to explore dangerous new ground, search the dark, abandoned streets of New Mombasa for clues, and fight back against the Covenant invasion from multiple perspectives. Dropping in as "the rookie," a new member of an elite squad of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers sent into New Mombasa on a ****fied recon mission, you'll be armed with specialized weaponry and upgraded technology, including silenced weapons and a VISR enhanced vision mode.

Separated from your squad, you'll have to scour the city for clues in order to learn what happened to Buck, Dare, Dutch, Mickey, and Romeo. As you collect new clues, you'll experience the story from their perspectives, fighting through the occupied city hours earlier.

4 Player Firefight:

Drop feet first into a new way to play Halo with the cooperative campaign mode, Firefight. Form a squad of your friends over System Link or Xbox LIVE and put your skills to the ultimate test against the invading Covenant war machine for glory, high scores, and achievements. Do battle in multiple environments, on foot or in vehicles, and against increasingly difficult waves of Covenant attackers while Halo 3's skull modifiers progressively activate to up the ante.

After the Firefight, relive and review every last kill you earned and see how your high scores and stats stack up against your friends' and the community overall using Bungie.net's persistent online stats and Firefight leaderboards.

Three New Maps, All the Map Packs, Halo 3 Online:

Three all-new maps make their debut for Halo 3's traditional, chart-topping multiplayer. Heretic, Longshore, and Citadel drop in alongside the original Halo 3 Multiplayer Maps, all packed in and playable from one standalone disc. Twenty-four maps in all, including the Heroic, Legendary, Cold Storage, and Mythic Map Packs, provide a peerless multiplayer experience, near limitless content creation and customization via the Forge and Sandbox, and a slew of new multiplayer achievements for Halo 3.

Halo Reach Beta Invite:

Buy Halo 3: ODST and receive an invitation to participate in the Halo: Reach Xbox LIVE multiplayer beta. If you want in, hold onto your copy of Halo 3: ODST and stay tuned to Bungie.net and Xbox.com for more details

I got ODST this morning, and have already finished the campaign. It's really cool. The best thing I can say about it is that it's more halo.

It was around 5 hours, and I was playing on Legendary.

The online is simply Halo 3, so it's already up.
#13 Posted by Floppy_Jim (25825 posts) -

^That's short :( I'm going for Heroic on my first playthrough. I'll add my GT when my copy arrives. (You were right N-G-T, looks like I won't get it until Monday :x )

I got the game this morning (9/19) at about 4 AM Central Time. My mini reviews, and information about the game and how I got it, can be found in my most recent blog post: LINK

#20 Posted by Toriko42 (27562 posts) -
Nice impressions I got a question, on the MP disc how does the map pack work? Is it readily on the disc or do you get a code to download the map packs

[QUOTE="Toriko42"]Nice impressions I got a question, on the MP disc how does the map pack work? Is it readily on the disc or do you get a code to download the map packs

All 24 maps are on the disc. No downloading or code needed.

There isn't really a map pack. You just put in the second disc and you just play Halo 3 multiplayer normally except with all the maps.

Sounds good to me, it's also optimized for installation right?

I remember reading on bungie.net that downloading the ODST disk to your hardrive is fine but don't download the multiplayer disk.

#32 Posted by x360owna (419 posts) -
Add me please! Glockeatsnoobs. Probaly gonna get it.

There isn't really a map pack. You just put in the second disc and you just play Halo 3 multiplayer normally except with all the maps.

So does this mean that I don't need to hold on to my Halo 3 copy anymore since there will be one in ODST? Just asking cause if so I would sell it and I'll have enough for ODST. ^_^;; Damn my budget. xD

Yeah you could. You'll just lose Halo 3 Campaign

im in for the firefight list, gamertag is in the sig, but wont be available the first week as it happens to be released right in the middle of my exam week
#36 Posted by istreakforfood (7781 posts) -

TC are you going to make a silver account to add all the listed gamertags? It be easier to look up for GTs who want to play FF. All they have to do is view the profile of the silver account and look at the friends list to see who is on and then decide who they want to play FF with that are online.

Anyways I don't mind being in the list. GT: X2stoned2c

Bungie recommended not installing the second disc.

I had Halo 3 installed for quite a while and I had no problems with online. The only slowdown occured in SP loading.

The game is doing better than expected. And so people don't forget, you can add friends via xbox.com, saves you turning on the box just to add people.
