MSN: Halo 3: ODST Review

It's almost as if Halo 3: ODST would ultimately prefer you to just stand up and fight everyone. And when you do, while it slows the game down somewhat, at least things are back to the familiarly brilliant first-person combat Halo is so good at.

What does work well from the stealth side of things is the new night-vision visor: it not only boosts light levels, but also beautifully picks out switches, enemies and other interactive elements.

And ODST's single-player campaign sees plenty of classic Halo action. But as a stealth game? Or for a sense of where the Halo franchise goes next? ODST is running on empty.

Another solid review for the greatest FPS series of all time. Ah thank you, thank you very much.

MSN ??
since when they review games ??

JEDI WOLVERINE2925d ago (Edited 2925d ago )

Thus if any site were to give ODST a perfect review it would be them would it not?

So from this we can pretty much conclude that Microsoft don't bribe sites for 'good review scores'.........

Perhaps, just perhaps, some people like playing games that others dont and vice versa - this might be reflected in their overall score - wow what a concept...

I will be giving my own score to this after a decent play through too!

wxer2925d ago

what the hell are you talking about
read the comment first
any way

they'll be really stupid if they gave if a full score
i mean
it'll be obvious
so yes MS pays other ( big web sites )
for scores
and stay away from their web sites
because it'll be clear as day light

CWMR2925d ago

-Whatever, wxer. Spin it however you want, but it sounds naive and paranoid.-

Syronicus2924d ago

They pop up to help raise the average of games put out for the 360 when all others are giving low scores.

taylork372924d ago

Not all others are giving ODST a bad score.. I believe the majority give the game a favorable score. Oh wait, those sites are paid off too right?

msn gave the same score to killzone 2

GiantEnemyCrab2924d ago

They've reviewed games for at least a couple years.

Some people have some serious double-standard issues.

I'm debubbling any dingis that comes with this MS paying for reviews crap unless you can prove it!

@ thesummerofgeorge

The problem is, rating on a scale of 5 really doesn't give much flexibility. Honestly, a 4/5 isn't the same as "80%".

Anything that they think is really good, but not perfect is probably going to get a 4/5, whether it deserves 95/100 or 80/100.

I could be wrong, but I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt. What really needs to go here is the rating on a 5 point system.

Oh wait... They really did.


Death2924d ago

They reviewed Killzone 2 also. It got 4 starts.


Tomonobu Itagaki2924d ago

They obviously have been paid to lower the score of Killzone 2 and increase ODST score. How can a 60$ old tech add-on be as much as good as a Sony killer app?

(yes this is sarcasm, but only a sarcastic truth)

randomwiz2924d ago

"They obviously have been paid to lower the score"

they're owned by microsoft

Double Toasted2924d ago
