ODST is more than an expansion. ODST is an experimentation.
Sure, this year's Halo game could be seen as something of a placeholder, a small side adventure to keep fans occupied until next year's Reach. The graphics are nearly the same as those in Halo 3. So are the enemies, weapons and vehicles. The gameplay feels as familiar as ever. In fact, if you've read our review, you know that we believe the older title is also the better.
Not in every way, though. Because ODST is an offshoot of the main trilogy, the developers were willing to break free from the main formula… seemingly for the first time since the series debuted in 2001. The results are refreshing, and we hope that future Halo games remember the lessons learned.

More than 13 years have passed since we first took control of Halo’s Oribital Drop Shock Troopers (ODST’s) with the release of Halo 3: ODST. Being the first Halo where not the main character Master Chief stood in the spotlight but an unknown ODST-rookie.
With the release of the new Halo Encyclopedia on Amazon things are about to change.
