|You can battle through all new Halo campaigns as an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper with "Halo 3: ODST," which was developed by Bungie for the Microsoft Xbox 360 console. It is a standalone expansion to the third installment of the series. With an original release date in 2009, "ODST" would be best categorized as a fast paced science fiction shooter game. While not essential to the original Halo series' storyline, it can act as an excellent side story to the popular "Halo 3" game. The storyline in this game serves as a prequel to the events of "Halo 3." For the first time, players take on the role of a regular soldier instead of Master Chief. Your mission is to locate the remaining team members of your squad somewhere within the besieged city of New Mombasa. "ODST" also represents a shift away from the linear storytelling of the original video games in the franchise. Players must navigate an open world, looking for relics of the characters on their UNSC special forces squad. When you discover a relic, you replay that character's last mission and see the events leading up to their demise. An original twist to the game is that you can play the story levels in any order. The campaign is noted for being an emotional tale with plenty of twists and turns. It can take most gamers 10 to 15 hours to fully complete the original campaign of this Xbox game. However, there are many secrets to uncover in every level. There are also additional difficulty levels to play on, including Legendary. If you're the type of gamer who likes to complete everything, you can expect to get at least 30 hours of gameplay out of the side missions.Combat in this Bungie video game is similar to other games in the original Halo franchise. There are some key differences between "ODST" and "Halo 3," however. Because your character is an ordinary soldier, he does not have the same abilities as Master Chief. Instead of recharging your life by staying in cover, you'll need to find health packs. Also, your character is unable to survive long falls. These changes make this title feel unique and will challenge even veteran players of the franchise.This Halo game features all of the original multiplayer maps from the Microsoft Xbox version of "Halo 3." You can join the match of any player who owns either "Halo 3" or "ODST." There is an exclusive multiplayer mode called Firefight. In Firefight, four soldiers must work together to earn achievements by repelling increasingly challenging waves of enemies. At the end of a Firefight round, medals and points are awarded for participants' achievements. The character who has the most medals and points at the end of the Firefight round wins the match. A great looking game with excellent graphics, "Halo 3: ODST" for Xbox 360 can be an excellent addition to the series. This Bungie Halo game features new character models and textures. Despite how hectic the audio and action gets on the screen, the Microsoft Xbox 360 will not slow down or lag. This smooth gameplay can be especially important in modes like Firefight where even a second's delay could mean defeat. "ODST" is one of the Halo franchise's more experimental games. It took some risks with its open world maps and its non linear content. This Bungie video game can be a must own Halo strategy game for any fan of the franchise.|
