VGChartz - Halo 3: ODST Review

With Halo 3: ODST you get the most story-driven Halo campaign yet; one with a great atmosphere and the best Halo music score to-date. The graphics engine is showing signs of its age, and the cut scenes are inexcusably bad, but ODST brings something new to the series with its atmosphere and VISR art style. You also get the complete Halo 3 multiplayer experience thrown into the mix. However, it's Firefight that seals the deal. Even if you already own Halo 3 you're going to want to check this mode out; there's no matchmaking system for it though, so you will need Halo friends, which isn't something we all have, but if you're a Halo fan with friends you don't want to be left out now, do you?

Ron_Burgundy Like all Muppet's he must be talking about sales since all other games that sold the same but in longer time is a flop but this only apply's to PS3 exclusives.

8.4 is a good score so I'm not sure where you are coming from.

WildArmed3476d ago

yeah so your saying they shoulda boosted the score by a 2.0 instead of the 1.4 from their base review score? lol

HolyOrangeCows3476d ago

I think they're trying to play it safe.

Microsoft Xbox 3603476d ago (Edited 3476d ago )

Giving it a 9 would be way too obvious. HolyOrangeCows is correct, they're playing it safe.

4Sh0w3476d ago (Edited 3476d ago )

Why would they need to play it safe if everybody knows they're biased? So let me see if I understand you guys.

A high score for 360 exclusive= biased

A low score for 360 exclusive= site got it right, *this time

A avg score for a 360 exclusive= biased, site playing it safe

Anything but a 10 for a ps3 exclusive= biased, same site scores the next ps3 game a 10, they got it right, *this time

wow, looks like you guys have every angle covered, in other words you better score every ps3 exclusive highly and every 360 exclusive low= fair and balanced.

WildArmed3475d ago

I guess you werent around for the Uncharted 2 reviews and Demons Souls reviews when all the xbox fan yelled BIAASSS.. till they could refuse it no more.

Both sides have their propaganda going on, try not to get caught in between.

Killzone 2 ODST killer confirmed. We can finally call it the Halo killer :).

NecrumSlavery3476d ago

Well Halo is killing itself, but that doesn't matter cause if you shlt on a stick and called it Halo and it would still sell. Killzone 2 is for sure the best shooter I've ever played. Great story, visuals, it's ungodly amazing

Pandamobile3476d ago

I find it quite funny how the tables have turned.

The first Halo game was fantastic, and Killzone 1 was horrible.

Now we have ODST and Killzone 2 and I bet you can guess which one's better.

Saaking3476d ago (Edited 3476d ago )

KZ2 is the best FPS this year.

AliTheBrit3475d ago

Modern Warfare 2 > Left 4 Dead 2 > Killzone 2

lh_swe3475d ago

But If you look at it from a popularity standpoint MW2 has more fans, KZ2 offers a drastically different FPS experience thus it won't go mainstream because lets face it if it's not COD people just turn a blind eye.

I will always enjoy Killzone 2 more than I did L4D and COD4. But thats just me, if you don't I respectfully let you express your opinion but what I won't stand for is you passing it off like it's fact.

Personally I'm going to be happy playing L4D instead of what I consider to be a glorified expansion, much like I never buy EA sports games.

And why are you comparing two games you haven't played to a game which you also...haven't played(wild guess here).
