    Wish it would have been extended

    Apart from being the inspiration to my name across many platforms. This was one of the games i enjoyed playing mostly with friends. I loved the story line, the characters, the guns ( including the awesome integrated sil... Read Full Review

    A nice story that feels like a movie

    Halo 3 ODST is probably the best of the prequel games. Seeing as we don't have a whole lot in the category that isn't from the Zelda series, and the most notable of the past few years was DMC (Which was both good and bad... Read Full Review

    So much wasted potential

    Audio: Weak voice acting, Weak sound track, and heavily recycled sound effects from the previous game. Visuals: Heavily recycled graphics from the previous game but are surprisingly worst. The game looks sort of poo... Read Full Review

    Halo 3 ODST: An underdog in size, but not even slightly in fun.

    Halo 3 ODST is set between Halo 2 and Halo 3, specifically after the scene where the Prophet of Regret slip-space jumps out of New Mombasa. Doesn't ring any bells? Go play Halo 2. This time around is significantly diff... Read Full Review

    Warning: Hitchhikers may be escaped convicts.

    Originally intended as a three-hour expansion to the superb Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST finally arrives and is anything but an expansion pack. Taking place mere moments before Master Chief destroyed the first Scarab in Halo 2,... Read Full Review

    Still a good game

    Halo 3: ODST was very different from the other Halo games. Instead of being in a Spartan battle suit, you're in standard UNSC armor which has no shielding, Instead, you have "stamina". The huffing and puffing sound that ... Read Full Review

    This is a rollercoaster of value, depending on what part of the crowd you are in.

    Halo 3: ODST is a very strange thing to review. It is two games for the price of...well, two, I suppose. ODST itself was going to be $30 and Halo 3 itself is $40, but if you take out the campaign (which is the case for O... Read Full Review

    With a huge city to explore and the new Firefight mode, ODST may be short, but it's highly replayable.

    The year is 2552, the Covenant have taken over the city of New Mombasa. A slipspace rupture had rid the city of any who could have survived the Covenant invasion of New Mombasa. The city is now a wasteland with no one bu... Read Full Review

    A different but yet still enjoyable Halo game.

    What started as a Halo 3 DLC became so much more. The firefight mode is very interesting and will serve you hours of enjoyment as it fits the game perfectly. I really enjoyed grabbing a gravity hammer or a spartan laser ... Read Full Review
