Halo 3: ODST



So I know there's a lot of people who hate on Halo. If you're one of them, then kindly hit the back button.

This game has just popped up on the radar in Mexico and will be available in stores on september 22nd. The game comes with two discs:

Disc 1 - Contains brand new campaign and co-op multiplayer mode called 'Firefight' which is kind of like Gears of War 2's 'Horde' mode.

Disc 2 - Contains the entire Halo 3 multiplayer game with all the previously released map packs + 3 new maps.

As for the game, I've only played a little bit, but seems really cool. I've always liked the Halo series, even though it didn't really revolutionize anything, it's been good mindless fun. I really like the fact that ODST mostly takes place on earth, because I always thought the earth-city settings from Halo 2 and 3 were done well and they should have done more of them.

So, anyone have a Halo guilty pleasure? Who's going to get this?

Screens:

Hmm, so theo MP portion isn't new then? I might have picked it up if it was, though if it's just Halo 3's MP with the map packs I'll probably hold off then.

i was going to gamefly it to play with my halo fanboy roomates but the fact that multiplayer is just halo 3 multiplayer killed it for me.

yeah, it's a little disappointing that there's no new multiplayer. however, i feel like if they HAD made a new multiplayer it most likely would have been very similar to halo 3's MP (since it's the same engine and all) and everyone would have bitched. so they just said fuck it and added new maps to halo3's and just included it all with odst.

also, they probably didnt want to split the community.

i would have been fine playing on halo 3 maps as ODST guys, but oh well.

they're probably saving the 'alternate halo MP' for Reach. based on the teaser media, it seems like they could be going for TF2 or Battlefield style competitive multiplayer and Resistance 2 style co-op for Halo Reach.

I'm trying to get a hold of a 360 console just to play this game. The live action trailer got me hooked.

Yeah it's in ODST, and it's silenced I think.

Pistol is weak as fuck, I've played through the first few levels and it seems pretty disappointing.

I wasn't planning on picking this up until I got my hands on it at E3. Then I heard about the Firefight Co Op MP mode and I was sold. I don't even like the Halo 3 MP, but the Firefight plus the new SP experience has sucked me in. The Halo lore is top notch, and its right up my alley. I've always enjoyed the campaign modes, even Halo Wars.

Not day 1, but likely day 2.

Yes, its back as a new pistol but powerful.

Also for those on the edge needing a little push ...

HiPNoTyQ
 
reviews are out for this:

http://kotaku.com/5363178/halo-3-ods...yline=true&s=x

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/re...o-3-odst/56112

for me, i'm sad to say theres one feature (that they also left out of halo 3) which will make me not buy this game, the lack of fucking matchmaking. I don't have a lot of friends who play halo, I would rather play firefight/co-op with strangers than by myself. Its a fucking standard to have matchmaking on your triple-a titles these days, wtf is their reasoning?

Yeah no matchmaking makes no sense, as that is the games only new/mp selling map that seperates it from Halo 3. Do tehy even have a lobby system or are you just fucked unless your friends get it to play as well?

i thought halo 3 had matchmaking....

don't you pick a playlist and wait for the matchmaking to find people to play with?
