PostSubject: Halo 3: ODST   Sun Nov 08, 2009 4:50 am

Halo 3: ODST is a sort of twist on the Halo universe, taking place between Halo 2 and Halo 3. Instead of the set pathways you get given in the previous Halo games, you can choose your own route around the streets of New Mombasa, finding clues to where your squad from a failed drop mission is.

When you find one of these clues, the game will transport you to a sort of flashback of one of your fellow ODSTs time in New Mombasa earlier in the day.

Gameplay - 9/10
It's Halo, but with a stealthy atmosphere to it. Meaning, you don't have to fight enemies in the night if you don't want to. You can wait for them to pass and then sneak around them. This adds a tactical element to the game, instead of your usual, shoot and run by. You can still do all that as well but the fact that you are not a Spartan anymore (your health doesn't recharge so you have to get Healthpacks AND you cant take as much damage) make this so much harder, once again, enhancing tactical value.

Graphics - 8/10
ODST's graphics have shown a marked improvement from Halo 3's looks.
The curves are smoother, and your surroundings have great detail.

Music - 10/10
When you're sneaking around at night, you need a little stealthy music. ODST gives you that. Rather than the regular choral activity (of which there is none of in ODST), you get jazzy, sort of dark music with saxophones and the like. Then when you get to the epic parts i.e the last level, the theme song for ODST will play. This song is pure awesomeness. It deserves a 10/10.

Multiplayer - 7/10
Halo 3: ODST has introduced a new, co-operative multiplayer mode to play with up to 3 of your friends and fight of hordes of the Covenant aliens. They have called it 'Firefight'. It works like this:
/ = Wave o = Round @ = Set
///// = o
ooo = @
/////////////// = @

It work much like Gears of War 2's Horde mode, where you fight off more and more aliens each time, and they get stronger as you progress. It's best played with a few friends to save a controller being demolished from pure frustration.

Replay Value - 9/10
Halo 2 just had easter eggs, Halo 3 had real collectibles (skulls), and ODST has both of those and more plentiful, should I add.

Halo 3: ODST has these collectible terminals called Audio Logs, which tell the story of a young girl called Sadie who lived in New Mombasa before and during the time when the Covenant attacked. These Audio Logs can be found stored in any machine around New Mombasa. You just have to find the right ones. There are 30 to be found and you probably wont find them all in one playthrough, so the game has good replay value. And the fact that there are multiple difficulties to complete the game on also adds to that. Firefight also adds to the replay value, with it being a multiplayer mode with multiple maps and Achievements to gain from it.

On top of all that, Halo 3: ODST along with regular Halo 3 gives you the chance to get the fabled RECON armor, which was previously only available to Bungie employees. If you gain the Seven VidMaster Acheivements

VidMaster Challenge: Annual (0G)
VidMaster Challenge: BrainPan (25G)
VidMaster Challenge: LightSwitch (0G)
VidMaster Challenge: 7 on 7 (0G)
VidMaster Challenge: Déjá Vu (25G)
VidMaster Challenge: Classic (25G)
VidMaster Challenge: Endure (25G)

You will have access to the 'Get RECON' button on
(providing you have a account)

Overall - 9/10
Halo 3: ODST is a great game for all the Halo veterans out there, with a nice stealthy twist that might make it challenging even for the most skilled Halo players.
