pretty dumb to show 1 hour of a 6 hour campaign, i had beat the game by monday the 21st which was before the game came out, good campiagn but just too short if you like to play online its worth it but if u just want the sigleplayer campaign its not worth it, jus give it a rent

@knucklemouth dont u remember that this game started as an expansion? to go from expansion to game i good in my book, besides those halo games your talking about took 3 years to make while they only took one year to make odst look up your facts man.

anyone know if Halo 2 is available as an Xbox classic download for 360. Had a look on Xbox.com and Halo: combat evolved is 360 compatible and down-loadable but no. 2 looked as though it wasn't.

loving the game so far, my only complaint is the faces seem to be ever worse than halo 3, and Dare is just plain ugly and looks nothing like who's her image is suppose to be based apon (Trisha Helfer)

@chaosbrigade as some one who regularly target shoots rifles I feel i'm qualified to say that gloved hands are a hindrance to accuracy. Any decent marksman (or not decent for that matter) would use fingerless or no gloves at all.

@ Dragdar I agree completely. ODST is really just a decent shooter, it isn't as spectacular as GS say and it surely doesn't deserve to be labeled in the Halo franchise.

@penpusher They have the technologies to travel in hyperspace, construct titanic spaceships, hovercrafts, regeneration armor, etc, is it illogical to think that they can at least invent some nerve sensitive thin glass fiber material for the gloves? No. This game just lacks imagination in this department.

@iamtheju: that IS the plasma rifle from halo 2, you are correct my friend!

haven't you noticed that games have become more multilayer based. it doesn't make sense to just not buy something because it lacks single player. Why in gods name do you have live if your not going to play online. your always going to run into morons who don't know what they are doing, i was just in a game 10 minutes ago with people like that. i have seen people like that on every game that i play. so please spare us the sob story about how you don't want to play online because your sick of some 6 year old insulting your virginity.

Remember when they used to make a Halo game with a single player campaign that lasted at least 20 hours, and everybody that owned an X-Box had a copy? Now it appears the single player is a pee-on now. Listen if I wanted to go die over and over playing online with a bunch of daft, foul mouthed teenage pubes then "yay, i have my game!" I fell for it once with the 1st Halo3, and it's 5-8 hour campaign?!? Not gonna happen again, unless it's $25 bucks tomorrow. (Not happenin') Hey, since Bungie is in love with the online player, why don't they have the Halo movie done by online players too, we'd have a dazzling 2 hours of Masterchief teabagging grunts, and questioning the Brute's sexuality, not to mention what they'd have all the characters mothers doing. If these new overpriced online aimed Halo 3 games are only offering half or a third of the single player campaigns, then the makers can all line up and kiss my a$$ right in the middle. I'll save my 70-80 bucks for Fallout 3 downloads, or Bioshock 2, whose makers apparently now how to go above and beyond for solo players, as well as remembering how they received such a winning franchise.

Im not going to lie the game looks cool but i hope reviewers actually take a long good look at the game before rating it. I felt like they just slapped a high score on the halo3 game. IMO, halo1 and halo2 are classics and always will be. Halo 3 just didnt do anything WOW, OH SH*T! for me and doesnt compare to the first 2 games. Hopefully this one would be better than halo 3.

u can say what u want but imma wait till it comes out to c how long the game really is. i like playing on line so all those maps is cool but if the campaign is 5-10 hrs of gameplay i will not pay $60.00 plus tax for that.i love bungie and the halo series but i fill like there getting over on us. addding all the maps and whatever else they added was just to cover for the price tag.ill get it of greglist when somebody get tired of theres.

Is this guy actually that bad, or is he pretending to be that bad at gaming? Seriously GameSpot, what sort of people do you employ

if you're after a good campaign then halo ODST unfortunately fails to deliver the singleplayer campaign is slowpaced unlike what halo is meant to be the co-op campaign can be finished by mediocre players in just over 4 hours on hard also firefight mode is overinflated note: I AM NOT TRYING TO START A FLAME WAR i am merely repeating what game-reviewers have said about this game so far who have ACTUALLY played it (IMO you cant make a decision on a game unless you see it, just like you cant judge a piece of music without listening to it)

@jamx97 Wrong. Uncharted 2 is different Genre. Also ODST is not even near from the graphics like Killzone 2. Also, check IGN.com. They gave 10 in Graphics for Uncharted 2 and 9 for ODST. But, is just a review.

I'm not watchn this. Bunch of braggers. "Look at me! I have the game and you don't!" ....they might not of said it, but thats what they're thinkn! XD

Why'd they choose someone who doesn't really play Halo to preview this game. That was a dumb decision but, cool stuff Gamespot!

What are you talking about UC2 looks ugly. have you seen its multiplayer? what a big joke!! KZ2 looks way better than uncharted2 and the fliud graphics in ODST kills uncharted2 hands down

ParisSun

If they do another Halo game beyoud Reach, the facial features, graphics, art, whatever really needs and upgrade. Whoever is drawing the faces, sucks. This is the 360s flagship game and it is nowhere near the graphics of MGS or Uncharted. Ridiculous.
