- Run and gun: While not as large or supernaturally gifted as their Spartan comrades, these Hell Jumpers more than compensate with their ferocious attitudes and unwavering nerve.

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.

|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.
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.

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.
Film Noir-esque, superb sound track, compelling characters, brilliant story.
This is one of Bungie's masterpieces, rivalled only by their other masterpieces.
Take me back to 2009 just for this!
Microsoft said the game would be an add on campaign that took around 4 hours or so to finish and (Most crucially), WOULD NOT be a full priced retail release. Then they changed their minds and said it WOULD be a full priced retail release, but the game had gotten a lot bigger since it's announcement. Fair enough, lets wait and see.
Game comes out, I fire it up and play through it on normal, and it takes me just under 5 hours to do so, and a LOT of that time is spent in the utterly pointless "open world" hub that you use to access the main missions (Even though there is nothing 'open world' about it, as it's just big areas that inevitably funnel you toward the same exits with no actual control over mission order or anything else that would constitute any other 'open world' game structure you'll be used to by now). The hub city is annoyingly dark, and your 'night vision' visor makes little difference beyond putting coloured outlines around enemies when you get close enough, and to be honest, the visuals in this game look really dated throughout. Halo 3 was never the best looking game, but still using it's engine today is really quite lazy.
The missions themselves are a mixed bag, with some being quite fun and engaging, and some being typical shooting gallery point A to B affairs, and overall there's little time to really get into the story of the game (Such as it is). There is some excellent voice acting, and the soundtrack is quite superb though, but there's no getting away from the fact the story simply isn't that good, and the climactic gameplay sequences are really really bad.Read more ›
The main missions are a bit more varied but each one has a similar theme with almost identical large arena gladatorial shoot-out endings where you battle huge numbers of enemies and wraiths. Its all a bit frantic and although I've played through twice (normal/heroic) I dont feel driven to play again and again like with Halo 3.
I think the graphics leave something to be desired, especially when the night vision is on as everything has a 2-D cartoon quality. There is also no recognizable "Halo storyline" to this and apart from the weapons and the enemies you wouldn't know it was a Halo game.
Firefight is a good addition but nowhere near as good as GOW2 horde and is limited in a couple of ways. Firstly teamplay is limited to friends and (I could be wrong about this), there is no restart option to resume at a wave level, I could only see you can start from the beginning each time. I haven't played online (no XB Live) but again you dont get the GOW2 option of playing multiplayer locally with team and enemy AI.
All in all a reasonable game but not up to the standard of other Halo games, nor of recent competition.
