I just finished ODST (I had a ps3 and could never afford a 360, but I wanted one so bad because of halo) on a 360 I just got, and I gotta say WHAT A GAME. It blew me away even now with its top notch gameplay and is still really technically impressive, even on 360. I haven't played a single bad Halo game so far (just played bungie Halo until now), but ODST really is a masterpiece in level design, gameplay, atmosphere and soundtrack. So happy to be part of the Halo community now.

one thing I realized, many songs in odst elude to other songs in the soundtrack, for example: 2:54 in overtire and 0:51 in deference for darkness are used in many tracks

As an adult replaying all of the Bungie Halo games I find ODST to be my favorite. It's easy to self insert into the role of the Rookie and through this develop a connection to the rest of the team. Being in the familiar Halo setting without the protection of a suit of Mjolnir armor only further invites you to get into the role of your character through mutual squishyness The grunts that used to run from you stand eye level now that you're not 8 feet tall The Jackle no longer needs a sniper to cause you damage And the brutes you easily outwitted before look at you as more of a meal than a threat You're not fit to save the world, hell you might not even be able to save yourself. The odds are almost insurmountable But it's still Halo, which means You know the music, time to dance.

I still love this game, i kind of wished instead of destiny, bungie should worked on trilogy series around the odst's. I love playing as master chief and spartans, but something about the odst's i liked more. It also pissed me off when found out later the novels killed off the rookie. I hate when companies tend to do that. Booooo! Imagine if odst was like reach and you got to customize your own rookie, male, female, and the armor customization reach had along firefight options ^^ Just imagine what they could have accomplished having full 3 or 4 years making an odst game

The grenade thing could be explained with the same argument you used for the dual wielding, spartans and the arbiter throw more linear because there's more strength behind their throwing, ODST are weaker so they have to throw higher if they want the grenade to reach further, like we would in real life.

I remember always helping people out getting the "endure" achievement, giving a crash course in ODST mechanics, pistol for headshots, plasma pistol for shields, the risky tap on the back to OHKO chieftains(theyre never invincible), scavenge weapons/ammo/grenades in between rounds Oni alpha site was the map of choice, one of the two most experienced players at each side at the back, paired with the least experienced And then one day some dude gave me the DLC codes for halo wars for helping em out, he was just so happy to get it. I will never forget that strangers kindness

First halo game that I bought at Game Stop. I was so pissed when the cashier said that these games were M rated and that I couldn't buy it. My mom told me that I couldn't get it, but I begged her. She eventually said choose one, and I picked Halo 3 ODST over Halo Reach. I remember at my birthday "party", I put the multiplayer disk into the xbox and me and my friends played 4 way split screen forge.

Just 2 trivia facts. 1.- The firefight maps are riped from the campaign because they were made to fill both roles, making easier to the small teams to develop 2 different game modes. 2.- Johnson is an Spartan-1 made in Proyect Orion, so he is literally just below Spartans II and III in genetic augmen.

Halo 3: The story of an Army Ranger getting forced to work with the the CIA doing some sketchy shit in Africa. Oh wait, this is about ODST’s vibing with ONI in Africa. Wow I loved this game because of how the soldiers and the mission is more reminiscent of how it is like in real life. Typically a lot of BS, not being able to do much but follow those orders. War isn’t glorious and I feel like ODST sort of highlights this better, down to even how the Marine/ODST audio is when you hear them talk to each other over deaths of their friends. It humanizes these folk. Romeo exhibits the dark humor side of the military that most normal people don’t understand about it. Overall each member of the team represents many different personalities. And it is awesome. What I loved about the Rookie was that, you are the Rookie, and he is you.

Odst is a great game that innovates when it comes to progression. But it is very much a first attempt when it comes to trying something new That being non linear linearity. The firsy couple of missions, you have to play in a certain order. But the next few missions, you could play in any order you want. Which is a fantastic idea. But the game itself doesn't capitalize on it. Each mission is meant to be told in a certain order There is only one marker at a certain time. So it discourages going to other missions New Mombasa is a bit of a mess when it comes to exploration. Everything is dark and looks basically the same. There's no landmarks to help you know where you are Don't get me wrong, this game is fantastic. But it does suffer from being the first of its thing. It might have inspired other games to do a better attempt. Breath of the wild, uncharted lost legacy and her story are great examples of non linear linearity

Halo 3 ODST has the best firefight and since that part is not on the MCC I have to automatically like the 360 version better because of that
Halo Wars 1/2 and Odst have the best stories because the characters really shine and do more than just fill the gap of master chief. Cutter, Buck and Isabel are my favourite characters in all of Halo

And now ODST is on PC, making us PC players able to play it for the first time, and it was great. The atmosphere was beautiful, with the jazz hitting your ears and the rain soaked night in a war torn city. The soundtrack is one of the top 5's in soundtracks of gaming IMO, and the gameplay felt good, although I did only feel a bit less powerful then a spartan, unless you play in third person (In which I'm able to with mods), which feels like a departure from being a spartan.

I think some of the ODSTs should have died throughout the game. Would have really hammered home the point that they aren't like the Spartans, that they aren't supersoldiers. I'm sure some would have said it was just cheap thrills for "undeveloped" characters to die in the same game that they were introduced in, but in my opinion they just feel too similar to Spartans as it is.

Halo 3 is the worst exclusive ever made. I just found out last week that Halo ODST is a masterpiece. If Bungie focused more on the ODST, there would be progress and their fans wouldn't have to force them to go back and improve on a game that isn't released yet. The atmosphere in this game is unmatched. There's never been anything worth playing after this.
