Collider writes: "For nearly eight years now, developer Bungie has continued to please Xbox owners with their "Halo" franchise. Two years ago, "Halo 3? set the benchmark for gaming sales, surpassing every previous release in the entertainment industry. Not only did it outsell every other game on the Xbox 360, its opening day sales topped that of the "Spider Man 3? feature film opening. Needless to say, the games protagonist Master Chief has left an indelible mark on the gaming industry. However, fans of the series were told that "Halo 3? was the culmination in the saga- that we had seen the end of Master Chief. Though this is true, Bungie is soon releasing "Halo 3: ODST", a game in the Halo universe that does not involve Master Chief, but does involve all of the previous goodies plus a lot more! Not being an avid "Halo" fan myself, I must admit that is a welcome addition to the franchise and is possibly my favorite game in the series."
