Halo 3: ODST is not an expansion pack to tie Halo fans over until Halo: Reach, while that may have been the reason in the beginning, the final product has exceeded it with a dramatic story and excellent cooperative mode known as FireFight.
Also included is the award winning multiplayer mode featured from Halo 3 which includes all the original and latest downloadable maps, and if that isn't enough then maybe unlocking the multiplayer Recon armour could guidance you to the purchase.
The game takes a different approach compared to the previous titles with Master Chief no where to be seen or heard. Instead you take on the role of an ODST also known an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper, they don't have the splendid talent that the Master Chief can take advantage of but they are still very highly trained soldiers when in action. They can only equip one weapon at a time so dual wielding is absent as well as the Battle-rifle and Energy Sword making a return. "
