Halo 3: ODST (Xbox 360) by Microsoft

Back when Halo:CE came out on the Xbox it was almost original, it was an excellent game, both campaign wise and in the multiplayer area too. In fact recently at college we would netwrok play instead of doing our IT work.

Then came Halo 2, it had been upgraded to give it a shiny new face, but it as fundamentally the same game, and a bridge between the first and last installment.

I think I might be missing the point with this game, but does it or does it not represent pretty much every other GTA game?
To me they look pretty much the same, and play pretty much the same.
I have owned the last three GTA games on various platforms and am becoming bored with the same missions, the same driving sections and the same gratuitous violence.
Now i am not some thrill-killing teenager who plays only games entitled "Bopsy the Bunny" or something, I am just becoming bored with people who claim this game is an "amazing".
I agree with those people who claim that the driving is at best "clunky" but then also agree with this who said that if you spend a few minutes… Read more
