Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

A new Halo 3 game is about to hit, but the Master Chief is nowhere to be seen. This all-new first person shooter has evolved into something much bigger than a mere standalone expansion pack and is now a fully-fledged prequel to the last game.

Discover more about the build-up to the classic Halo 3
ODST stands for Orbital Drop Shock Troopers
You no longer play as the indestructible Master Chief
Sgt Johnson is available as a pre-order bonus character

You no longer play as a Spartan super soldier, but as a sort of futuristic paratrooper with less high tech armour and abilities. Much of the game is told in flashback, as you search for your missing teammates in New Mombasa and discover more of the backstory of the Halo universe.

Of course this being Halo the multiplayer is just as important as the story campaign, with the basic modes being identical to Halo 3 and using all 24 current maps. New mode Firefight though is a four player co-op mode similar to Gears of War 2's Horde - perfect for Halo fans looking for more action.

Key Features
  • Semi-super soldier: Get used to a dirty, more tactical style of warfare as you join the elite ODST in a story set two weeks prior to the events of Halo 3.
  • Halo world: For the first time ever in a Halo game you can explore an open world environment, with the freedom to go anywhere and use any vehicle.
  • Classic action: Fight in the revamped multiplayer mode from Halo 3, with access to all 24 maps released so far, including all downloadable map packs.
  • War without end: New Firefight multiplayer modes introduces four play co-operative action against an unending wave of Covenant forces.
About the Developer: Bungie
This U.S. studio had been around for ten years before they created mega hit Halo. Ironically in their early days they were know for their Mac-only games such as Marathon, as well as strategy series Myth. They were bought by Microsoft in 2000, but in 2007 they became independent again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prepare to drop 19 Feb. 2014
By Tracey
Halo 2 had promised a battle of earth but we didn't get that now halo 3 odst gives you a true battle of earth it's fairly short but its worth everything you pay there's a great campaign the awesome firefight and every halo 3 map the campaigns the main attraction explaining what happened to earth and a small team of odst,s you play as the rookie looking for your team and finding clues you flash back when you find a clue to a member of your team its very different but it works excellently the firefight is the best on this game the best map is lost platoon and its best enjoyed in co op with friends or split screen you face off against waves of covenant on a selection of maps it's really fun and defiantly worth a punt.the multiplayer is a tad disappointing its just halo 3 multiplayer all the maps are brought together on a second disk it's great but you can't help but feel an odst only multiplayer would be better odst is amazing this is worth every penny

4.0 out of 5 stars It is Cool 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase
This game is unusual. You are not the Master-Chief we all know and love. This time you are an ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Trooper) trooper. They are the ultra elite force of the UNSC army, a little lower than spartans. You are thrown into the ruined, battle scarred streets of the African city, New Mombassa, fending off an alien invasion. You play as five different ODSTs and are trying to regroup and gain intelligence to help fight the aliens. It is a very interesting game. You feel more vulnerable as an ODST. Gameplay is still halo style, there is a free roam but it is far from perfect and the streets are very dark. Gameplay is great, replayability is decent and is a good game. If you are new to Halo, try starting with some other game but this game is very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality 7 Dec. 2013

Heard nothing but bad things about this game, but needed to play it as I love Halo. Brought a refreshing element to the game. Play as multiple characters, much harder now you aren't masterchief. Some great episodes and setting. Great addition to the franchise. Definitely underrated.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good not great 3 Jan. 2010
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a big Halo fan and was looking forward to something new from Bungie. I was not disappointed but a little put out that it didn't deliver what I had expected.

The story is set between Halo 2 and Halo 3 and is focused on the actions of an ODST called the Rookie. You are dropped to fight the Covenant but it all goes wrong. You wake up alone and have to find your squad. You do this by moving from location to location in search of clues. These clues will then trigger a flashback where you will play as another ODST from your squad. Its got some great levels but as a whole the campaign is just good, as wandering about the city gets boring fast and it often takes longer to get to the next clue than to play the following level. The campaign is also very short.

Bungie have taken a leaf from Gears of War 2. This is their version of horde as you and up to 3 others fight wave after wave of enemies. They are randomly generated waves so you can't plan ahead. Although good fun it becomes boring as there is no end to the onslaught.

Disc 2
This disc complements Halo 3 as it contains all of the maps for it including the downloadable ones. You can also play multiplayer with it altough you can't do much with your armour. Its a great extra but not worth buying the game for.

A game worth playing if you fancy something new or have enjoyed Halo before however consider borrowing it from a friend before buying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Part of the Halo Universe 4 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I love Halo. Sure, it has its flaws, flaky vehicle physics being the top of my list, but I still love it.
If you want another slice of the Halo universe then ODST will be your cup of tea. The action is intense and the gameplay addictive as always. The controls, audio and graphics are as polished as they've ever been.
I would have awarded a higher score but for the repetitive gameplay and poor A.I. It just didn't quite live up to expectations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love Halo, but I was disappointed with this :( 20 Oct. 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I love the Halo series, and was eagerly anticipating the release of this. Was enjoying the first-person solo game of it, but like other reviewers, found it very repetitive after a while. I thought I may have been 25% through the game, when the credits rolled after one of the missions. My jaw hit the floor. It's SO short! Granted you get a multi-player disk with it too, but having already paid hard earned cash on downloading new maps for Halo 3, I've not found a massive difference in the new Multiplayer disk with ODST. Granted I'm still playing on-line with it, so we'll see if something brand new appears, but my hopes aren't great.
In summary, if you're a Halo 3 fan, save your money and borrow a copy of ODST from a mate and you'll be finished it in a few days.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this game. 21 Oct. 2014
I love this game.I am not usually into shooters other than Fallout 3 and New Vegas but this is different.with the exception of Combat Evolved all other Halo games have had a weak campaign and have been all about the multiplayer which doesn't interest me at all.I like all the wondering around in the dark hunting for clues to the whereabouts of my squad mates the only thing I wish was different is the streets looks mostly the same.I wish it had more stealth elements like Splinter cell where you could hide in the shadows and shoot lights out etc.I wish it had old houses and narrow corridors.I wish it had a jungle with wild animals in or a swamp and I wish you could drive the civilian vehicles,but otherwise this game is great and for me it is the best Halo game to date.
