ProGreat fun, Good Campaign, More Maps and Firefight!

ConsNone at all for me

My fiancé and I are both keen gamers and play quite a lot of video games. I however, never used to like shooting games, purely because they looked hard and the once or twice I played I sucked. But after getting fed up of watching him having all the fun I picked up the controller and got him to...

I had heard so much about this game from my console-based gaming friends. I had been told this that and the other about how the Halo series is simply unbeatable as one of the best sci-fi gaming series’. I had been told yet time and time again that it far surpassed the quality level of Half-Life 2...

ConsNothing really

HALO 3: ODST (XBOX360) = Halo 3: ODST is the next instalment in the Halo franchise it is the first person shooter to be released this fall but is facing some stiff competition, so is it worth our £30? With the Master Chief missing can this game live up to the high standards set by its...

Halo 3: ODST is a standalone expansion that does not require you to own a copy of Halo 3... However, its a great game full of more exciting things for you to do... Without a doubt the new revamp of Halo is a great idea... However, the dual-wielding is gone of all weapons; however, you do have the...

This review is geared towards the gaming community and assumes a basic knowledge and familiarity with video games. ------ Halo 3: ODST has proved that Bungie can do it again and again without losing any of their flare or the franchise's value. The Halo series has become so elevated in computer...

This game recieves alot of criticism for being short,or having no real multiplayer. Can i tell you why? this game was orginally intended to be DLC but instead bungie decided to make it a full campaign, along with the firefight mode, and all the Halo 3 maps on a separate disk and the Reach Beta...

ConsThe single-player is criminally short.

To start off, if you liked Halo 3 or any other game in the franchise then you will love Halo 3: ODST. It would be cheap to say that its more of the same, and whilst the enemies, the guns, the vehicles, and the sounds are the same, its what you would expect from a game staying loyal to its roots...

The latest installment of Bungie's spectacular series, Halo 3: ODST promises to deliver us an insight into the early events of the Human - Covenant battle. As a great Halo 3 fan I was slightly pensieve about another Halo game as I believed that nothing could or should top the smash hit we all...

after all the waiting and all the hype, Halo 3 ODST is finally here. Does this addition hold its own or is it the first bad game for the halo series. You are a Rookie in this orbital drop shock troopers squad (ODST) your mission is to drop on a covenant battle ship as you and your squad are...

So here we have it (a day early for me after I pre-ordered off the superb Shopto.net) the next and penultimate Xbox 360 Halo game. The build up has been immense, the media coverage huge, and it's finally here! However, it is worthy of the Halo name? Halo 3: ODST Previously called Halo 3: Recon...

ConsEasier than Halo 1, 2 and 3.

Halo is probably the one game that gamers relate most to the Xbox. Halo ODST is the 4th Halo title in the series and while it came after Halo 3 the story is set between Halo 2 and Halo 3 and follows the elite force of ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Troopers) instead of the more commonly known Master...

In my opinion, Halo 3: ODST is probably petter than any Halo game so far, and pit's going to be better than any Halo game in the future, it was borderline perfect. It was great, and it was worth the sixty dollar price tag. The game's controls boast the same halo 3 controls, and youcan't get...

Profairly good gameplay and graphics

Consfar to sort and no competitive multiplayer

Gameplay Very good, but far to much like halo 3, There are only minor changes. The wepons look a little diffrent, and the pistol is the only weopon where the affects and damage of it have changed. This game is really just an add-on for the game play. Campain Very short. To short. 7 missons plus...
