Halo 3: ODST (Microsoft Xbox 360, 2009)

Microsoft and Bungie's blockbuster sci-fi shooter series continues with this standalone expansion to Halo 3. Battle through an all-new campaign as an ODST, short for Orbital Drop Shock Trooper, in a story line that serves as a prequel to the events chronicled in Halo 3. Your mission is to locate the remaining members of your squad somewhere within the Covenant-besieged city of New Mombasa. A new multiplayer mode entitled "Firefight" is introduced, where up to four players must work together to repel increasingly challenging waves of enemies. A second disc is home to a total of 24 multiplayer maps, three of which are new, with the remainder comprised of the "legendary," "heroic," and "mythic" Halo 3 map packs that were previously available as downloadable content via Xbox Live. Initial runs of Halo 3: ODST also include a key to the multiplayer beta of the franchise's next anticipated entry, Halo: Reach.

Pros Comes with Halo 3 multiplayer disc
Cons Boring campaign, no multiplayer, firefight is nothing like zombies, loses halo feeling
Recommended it? Yes

Do not buy this game. It is a complete waste of your money, the campaign is definitely sub-par and firefight gets boring after about two games because you discover there is no point. Read full review »

Okay this game is a lot of fun. The biggest surprise for me was firefight mode, it was the part I was looking forward to the least, but is the most fun. It's 4 player co-op against endless waves of enemies, getting tougher and tougher as time goes on. It starts off slow, but soon gets really hectic... Read full review »
