Halo 3: ODST Review - PlanetXbox360

From the feature review:

"The Halo franchise is something of a gaming phenomenon, selling more than 27 million video games over the course of its fairly short lifetime. It has become the flagship series for Microsoft's consoles and helped move developer Bungie into a top-tier level of creative power. A couple years ago the release of Halo 3 broke more entertainment sales records than any video game before it, making sure the general public knew the power of interactive media. Adding the word "Halo" to any product will make it a commercial success, some more than others, but still topping charts everywhere. Books, video games, toys, animated movies (coming next year) are only a few examples of the types of products that the Halo franchise can produce. One of this year's biggest releases on the Xbox 360 platform is the supposed last entry in the franchise from developer Bungie and first-party publisher Microsoft Games, a prequel going by the name Halo 3: ODST.

It may not be something entirely revolutionary when it comes to gaming entertainment but for us Halo 3: ODST is the best game (and most complete) in the long-lived series, hands-down."

Many may disagree with me but personally I think ODST is the best Halo game out there, loving the non-spartan story and it really just captures the best of all previous titles, well done Bungie!

YEP - I got to watch my buddy play through the entire SP campaign and it lasted MUCH longer than some other sites are saying, 8 hours is good and Firefight mode is unbelievably fun!

Good review....

ya the game is halo to the t but still 4 or 5 hour sp n firefight maps seems a bit short for 60 bones.

i cant say i expect much objectivity from planetxbox tho im guessing will see more near tens form the usual suspects. Imo no real improvment to the game engine and short on content shouldt add up to more than a 6 or 7 at full price.
If it was 30 40 id b all for the high scores 2 but this is jus milking my halo luv.

Phew, I'm glad it's not like Halo 3 all over again. A bunch of 10/10s thrown everywhere. 9s are more reasonable.

no one cares about planetflopbox360.

I'm sure the game is just as good as IGN and PlanetXbox360 are saying it is, personally I will wait until I get some time to play the game all the way through before making my final decision but reviews look good - and I'm glad to chalk another point up for Xbox 360 owners over PS3 ones....great exclusives!

SnuggleBandit3950d ago

That's a laugh...what were you playing all year until this gaem again?? oh ya...

UltimaEnder3950d ago

z-hayden: have you even played the game? oh wait I'm guessing not since 90% of fanboys that comment on reviews have never seen nor played the game they are bashing in real life, oh well!

SnuggleBandit3950d ago (Edited 3950d ago )


you must not have read my comment...he was saying this game is better than ps3 exclusives which i doubt (looking at average scores)

And i don't think odst will SUCK but there's no way it's AAA
