Halo 3 ODST - it's out, what are your thoughts?? Any good?
« on: September 23, 2009, 01:03:33 pm »

Okay guys - it's been out for long enough - someone spill!  Is it any good!  Should casual gamers, and OKgamers even notice or care about it?

hmm i havent had a chance to play it through on legendary, but i think it will be hard as ♥♥♥♥♥ on legendary because of lack of ammo. But i think it was a very average game honestly not to much fun though, i have fun on fire fight mode, and hunters do nothing but absolutely annoy the everliving ♥♥♥♥♥ out of me because they do not die, because there isnt enough freaking ammo. thats what i think though hahaha

eh...honestly unless your into the halo series i wouldnt even think about picking it up. nothing really new and different from any other game. Firefight is like, to me at least, a less fun version of Horde mode and the campaign is really not all that fun or exciting. But if your a halo fan then Midship is reason enough to pick it up lol

Hey this is great and all but... i'm concerned that half of the gamestops here wont do the tournament. I pray they do.. Sometimes they will say they are doing a tournament then when you go they said their doing it at a different store.. and another different store.... lets home it goes through that will be awesome.

The game is completely different from Halo 3. The jumping is close to that of a normal human and the nade throwing has been shortened a lot. But I think the game is fantastic in the light of the Halo story. And the game is not that bad on Lengendary. In fact all my friends I play with on the game agree that it is too easy on Legendary. Ammo is not that difficult to find, you just need to learn how to use covenant weaponary. (My favorite combo is the AutoMag and a Plasma Pistol). But for tournaments? I think Firefight might get a little old after a while. The same thing happens over and over. You might do a tourny to see how far each team can get and the one with the most points wins. But maybe a lot of people may find this to be boring. If there was a tournament.. I would attend but would not be surprise to see if there was not much people there to play. But always remember.. go for head shots but not if there is a shield.
May God have mercy on your video game character, cause I won't.

K, well roommate and I beat it on legendary as of a few minutes ago.


Game play is pretty solid, although it's OBVIOUS they didn't test some things as well as they should have - specifically visr during the day heh. 

I'm happy that I get 3 grenades?  But why didn't Master Cheif?

I'm happy that I can run at full tilt with a torrent?  But why didn't yea?  Why he so slow.


Other than that, I really think it'd help most players learn to use ammo and aim better - because learning the alien weapons or not - you need to aim fo teh hed lol.


I like the human touches, the changes to crouch walk, and the commentary.  And yes, it doesn't scale at all from what I can tell for 2 player lol.  NOW WE TALK ABOUT ANIME YES?  lool

Me and a couple people have come to a conclusion that the ODST only have leg press in their weight rooms.  That's why they can hold more grenades, the rest on his belt, which puts more weight onto his legs. Same goes with the turret, the got dem leg power. Master Chiefs one of those guys who just cares about how his arms look to get the ladies......

Anyone else wonder why that ♥♥♥♥♥ got the girl at the end and not the Rookie?  That's messed up.
