Halo 3: ODST Review :

"Prepare to drop..."

by Swiftstar Oct 25, 2010

It's actually kind of tricky, so listen to what they say.

The game has brilliant music, fast paced beats for when the action is really starting and slow tunes for when something massive is happening. The sound effects are pretty much the same as in Halo 3, which are pretty awesome. I love them and I certainly can't fault them for what they are. The grunts
If you've never heard of Halo before, then wow! Welcome to the father (or the uncle, or the cousin, whatever) of FPSes (first-person shooters). As you are no longer playing as Master Chief, you have to be slightly more careful when approaching enemies. You are now an ODST (orbital drop shock trooper
5Lasting Appeal
Once you've completed the campaign, you can go back and do it again on a higher difficulty (the range goes like this: Easy > Normal > Heroic > Legendary). You can also do it cooperatively either online or offline. You can go for a highscore in Firefight, or try to unlock some tough achievements like
