Gamepro: Halo 3: ODST Preview - The New Halo

The UNSC calls them Orbital Drop Shock Troopers. They pack themselves into insertion pods with all the glamour of space sardines and ride the atmosphere like balloons in a thunderstorm. They might make landfall, but then again, they might not. Some think they're all crazy. As far as they're concerned, they need to be. After all, they do call themselves Helljumpers.

Sounds like a much fresher approach than they allowed themselves last time out. Maybe being freed from having to hone and improve the MC blueprint has left them more room to mmove and innovate the series. I was thinking the other day that Bungie would want to leave Halo with a big bang and a big shift in the gameplay and story would do that-lets hope they really pull off something specual for the SP this time out.

Chuck Norris asked for his autograph.

Did I mention HALO.

I see a lot of potential for innovation here too, but I also see a lot of potential for stagnancy. Who knows if Bungie decides to reinvent the wheel this time? We'll just have to wait and see.

Halo 3 was a great game, but the campaign seemed a little bland. However, I'm stoked about this ODST! Still prefer the Recon name instead of ODST though....

It's just an add-on in disc form. It will have the same exact multiplayer as Halo 3.

It's an add-on in disc form? What!?
Sounds like a game to me..

Well, I guess it matters on the size of this "add-on," wouldn't you say?

then Halo 1 HD remake.

of something like that coming from someone with a MGS avatar...

mastiffchild4064d ago

I agree his comment wasn't really needed but I also think that Halo3 is much closer to Halo CE than MGS is to MGS3 let alone 4.

It's why I think ODST is so interesting AND so important. I hope it does break the mould somewhat-and I feel it sort of has to. You won't be playing as a virtual superman this time and the gameplay mechanics, as it's still set in the same universe, with the same enemies will have to alter accordingly making Bungie think about things in a totally new light. I think they'll probably find it liberating both for them and the series as Halo3 outside of the usual tight MP was a prety moribund SP campaign and def not a patch on the first, or even imo, the second Halo.

Reading N4G I often think sometimes that I've got it all wrong and being a Halo fan and a MGS fan are really mutually exclusive! However, I really believe this should be a very special game for Bungie, and Halo players too, as it will hopefully widen the experience far more than previous games have been able to. Looking forward to it massively-esp now.
