A Quick Tip by jamesliu

One of the best in the series since the original, each mission is intense and different, the only knock is that it's a little too short.

I didn't get introduced to the Halo franchise until much later than most people. HALO had been out for several years and HALO 2 had been released for over a year by the time I purchased an Xbox and sat down to play the campaign of HALO. After beating that, it was about six months later before I had an opportunity to sit down and play through the campaign of HALO 2. I understand that for most Xbox games nowadays, the big thing that many gamers look for is the multiplayer game play. I'm not …

When it comes to the Halo games, there are always those who really love them and those who really hate them.  The people who really love Halo are quite passionate about it.  Those who hate Halo seem to only hate it for one reason: It's incredibly popular.  And yes, sometimes we can rightfully be skeptical of something being popular, but Halo haters seem to use the games popularity as an excuse not to think.  If it sold 500,000 copies instead of 5,000,000 you'd have people …

I’ve just been playing Halo ODST, the latest installment of Bungie/Microsoft’s actually-very-good first person shooter series.   ODST I came to the series recently, buying Halo 3 when I got my Xbox 360 last year.  Initially I thought that Halo 3 was just another sci-fi FPS, of which there are so many and so many are so poor.  What became quickly obvious is that a lot of thought and work has been put into the player experience.  The cinematic set pieces you fight …

Halo 3...I have trouble knowing where it is I'm supposed to begin with this game other than to say it is the greatest let-down of my gaming "career." Now, to start off I am in no way a Halo hater. In fact I have been a fan ever since the original game was released on the PC (I have since acquired a Xbox 360 and the original Xbox version of that game and its sequel). In fact I was so excited by the hype of the third game that I went ahead and pre-ordered the $150 Legendary Edition of the game. The …

Pros: Solid gameplay, more of the goodness, amazing multiplayer     Cons: Short campaign, no backstory     The Bottom Line: Halo 3 is a must-have game. While the campaign is little more than a tutorial, the multiplayer will give this game legs for years.      Ah yes, the most hyped game of the year, Halo 3. What is there to say about the most highly anticipated game of all time? Does it live up to the hype? Is it a thrilling conclusion …

Wiki

Developed exclusively for Xbox 360 by acclaimed developer Bungie, Halo 3: ODST is a new, stand-alone expansion to the Halo saga that lets players experience the events leading up to the epic story told in Halo 3 through the eyes of an entirely new character the ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Trooper), as they search for clues leading to the whereabouts of their scattered squad and the motivations behind the Covenant's invasion of New Mombasa. The game adds a new dimension to an all-encompassing universe that gamers around the world have known and loved since the release of the first Halo game in late 2001.

Much more than an expansion, Halo 3: ODST allows players to explore dangerous new ground, search the dark, abandoned streets of New Mombasa for clues, and fight back against the Covenant invasion from multiple perspectives. Dropping in as "the rookie," a new member of an elite squad of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODST) sent into New Mombasa on a classified recon mission, you'll be armed with specialized weaponry and upgraded technology, including silenced weapons and a VISR enhanced vision mode.

 

Separated from your squad, you'll have to scour the city for clues in order to learn what happened to Buck, ...
