A Look Back: Halo 3: ODST (Xbox 360) Review [Triple Entente Radio]

Daniel Richtmyre - If you are one of many who enjoy the Halo games, than there is really nothing I can say that will deter you from buying Halo 3: ODST. In fact, chances are, you’ve probably already bought the game. Halo 3: ODST uses basically the same formula as pretty much every other game in the series. If you like Halo, you’ll like this game; but if you don’t, than this expansion probably isn’t going to change your mind. One major question it does bring up however, is if this package is worth its 60 dollar asking price?

Worth 60 bucks? no.
Is it a good game? yes.

Agreed. I think Microsoft should not have tried to milk the shit out of it and let Bungie release it as an expansion/DLC like they wanted to.

Thing is, ODST isn't a US$60 game anymore.
(It's two years old!) had it for $10 last month.

Even if you aren't a shooter fan (I'm not--I favor BioWare and Betheda RPG time sinks) that is a good price for an accessible peek into the Halo universe. (And there is a second story embedded in the rookie arc; a series of audio clips tell the story of a local girl named Sadie.)

ODST could've used a bit more Stealth gameplay and building exploration in the Rookie segments but it's a solid game all-in-all.
Just make sure to find a cheap version (<$20).

It's been changed in the info tab on the site (Median price in today's standards - $20 New). Can't modify the review though seeing as the author wrote it at the time that it retailed for $60. I just recently reposted the review on the blog. Thanks for the heads up though!

ODST is good but Reach is better IMO.
