    I'm sick of halo. Almost as sick of it as I am of Guitar Hero/Rock Band releases every other week. Still not interested.

    Not to criticize, but it seems like your problems with the game didn't justify dropping the score three points. So the gameplay is the same as Halo 3. That's not a bad thing. Gears 2 was a carbon copy of Gears 1 but its still a fantastic game. I think your review is accurate (I haven't played it yet), because it sound like you took a serious look at the game. But those negative points just don't seem like that big of a deal. I've always said you guys weren't biased toward Sony, and the evidence is your disinterest in Halo. I don't mean that as an insult, it's just an observation.

    I never really planned to play ODST, but I may give it a rent; at least to play a bit of firefight and speed through the campaign to see what's going on. Halo:CE is the only Halo that I think deserves its recognition, but hopefully Reach can recapture the great feel that the first had.

    This doesn't really change my opinion about the game. I would have expected an 8, though. But your score is well justified, so i'll respect it.

    Sadly I will still buy this game on launch....tragic

    did you seriously just compare an rts and a n fps? come on guys!

    Mmmmhh....Well I've been planning to go to a midnight launch of this thing for awhile so might as well go through with it. At the very least this should hold me over until OF:Dragon Rising.

    I Kick All ass on Heroic, FireFight should be Kick ass, but i'm not sure about the campaign, i'll let you know Tuesday at 12:01

    i'm not really caring about score i don't have live so i want all the maps

    A hot girl working at gamestop convinced me to preorder this. I didn't want it then, and I don't really want it now. Damn you Christina!!!!!!

    I will pick this up eventually and it is a good deal for me (anyways) since I don't have any of the MP mappacks for Halo 3. Its just too bad that you can't take the ODSTs online in there own versions of slayer and other modes. Either way it doesn't sound half bad.

    I hate Halo (Breathes Heavily)
  • magicwalnuts0 - September 20, 2009 8:39 a.m.

    WOOO! Another laughably short campaign for a game franchise that has an excellent Sci-Fi backstory. EPIC FAIL, my 360 just RRoD'd for the third time, so I'm definitely never playing this game, cause I'm not repairing that piece of shit. reCaptcha: Episcopal Coinage

    am i the only one who saw the 'we definitely haven't played THIS before' video and thought 'wow i've totally played that before'?
  • CountFenring - September 20, 2009 6:15 a.m.

    Good review, I'll probably buy this when it drops so I can get into Reach just because I hope it'll be like Halo Ghost Recon. I do love the Halo universe, so I think I'll enjoy this too.
  • legory - September 20, 2009 6:05 a.m.

    I am definitely getting this game. I am a huge Halo fan, and thus I add the +1. I've been looking forward to this game for almost a year, your less-than-enthusiastic review won't stop me from buying it! ReCAPTCHA: Dymshits egress

    Without online matchmaking for the Firefight mode, ODST won't be as fondly remembered as Halo 3. Not to mention its full game price tag. I really wanted to buy this game but as the months went by, my interest waned and I'm just going to rent it for the single-player. Perhaps I'll buy a copy if its 20 dollars cheaper.

    ahhh yaaaaa i am definately pickin uup me some of dat ODST! HOOAH!
  • ChrisAntistaSmellsLikePizza - September 20, 2009 4:28 a.m.

    I might try a rent first, then see from there if I really consider it a Halo expansion that truly expands and adds new flares to a pretty "O.K." formula, not just adds new multi-player maps, or if it is just another (all be it upgraded) version of horde/survival mode.
