Game Details

This new chapter in the Halo universe includes the following:

* All-new campaign content: The Halo 3: Recon campaign is an intriguing side story that takes place during the terrifying events leading up to the Master Chief's return to New Mombasa in Halo 3. Experience the fate of Earth from the brand-new perspective of a special forces ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Trooper), adding a unique outlook and new gameplay elements to the events that unfold in the trilogy's finale. While the feel of this new chapter greatly resembles that of previous Halo experiences, Halo 3: Recon will require you to employ more elements of stealth and cunning than ever before.
* Prepare to drop: Known for their courage, valor and, at times, insanity, ODSTs are among the fiercest UNSC soldiers, priding themselves on being the first unit deployed into hostile situations. While not as large or supernaturally gifted as their Spartan comrades, these "Hell Jumpers" more than compensate with their ferocious attitudes and unwavering nerve.
* Expanded multiplayer collection:No Halo experience would be complete without groundbreaking multiplayer content, and Halo 3: Recon gives fans more of what they love. With exclusive new maps and expanded Forge options, Xbox LIVE® Gold members will find more multiplayer content than ever before with Halo 3: Recon.
* Ever-growing community options: Enjoy all the great Halo 3 technological innovations, including Saved Films, screenshots, Campaign Scoring, and four-player co-op. All of the new multiplayer maps fully support the Forge editor, offering endless gameplay customization possibilities."

I guess it is a seperate release and not an add on. I hope it is a full game and not just a couple missions, but fall 2009 is way too far.

Um...stealth?...I hope it isn't required.

With me a stealth mission turns into a firefight anyway.

I still want it!!!

Naming it with a "3" gives it an unsubstantiated and already tired feel.

As if Gears 2 and even Halo 3 won't already stomp those games, Halo 3: Recon will crush them with an iron fist, leaving Sony to go back to copying some other game.. maybe they'll move on to copying adventure games from Nintendo than FPS games from Xbox? Who knows

alexM3569d ago

Resistance' graphics are God-awful. Want to know how they got started on designing the graphics of that game? The lead graphic designer took a dump in a toilet, took a picture of it, showed it to the rest of his graphic team and said "make Resistance's graphics resemble this". Killzone seemed to follow suit.. hence why both those games graphics look like shhit. I guess thats one thing Sony actually did right!
