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.

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.

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.

This is best Halo game ever, based on the game engine of the best halo game ever (halo 3)
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!

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

I recently played through Halo ODST and really, come on now, we were all more than a bit ripped off here, weren't we?

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.

I'm a huge Halo fan and I did enjoy playing this game first time around. However it has a number of flaws. The basic structure is pretty good with the city-based Rookie missions leading to the larger flashback main missions. The problem is that even for Bungie this has a very repetitive feel to it. The Mombassa streets Rookie missions are virtually identical and the novelty of night vision and new etc soon wears off as you wander endlessly in the dark looking for clues to the whereabouts of your team. The hidden weapons caches behind shuttered fronts are a big help in those missions.
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.
