Happy Eighth Birthday Halo 3: ODST!

ODST was a game that looked neat, but for me it turned out…okay. I appreciate Bungie’s risk taking while making Reach and starting the early stages of Destiny’s development. It has things I enjoyed and things I didn’t enjoy. What did I like? First and above all Marty’s score. Its amazing. The jazz and rock music suited the game perfectly. Marty’s the master! I sort of liked the shift from shields to health like CE - really the health and stamina. It set it apart from the other Halos. The ODST’s banter, and Nathan Fillion (nuff said lol), were great. What I wasn’t a big fan of, and if you disagree thats fine, were the weak story payoff/arc and the wandering around. It felt boring at times. I guess the jazz music helped alleviate that. Still, I enjoy playing it from time to time.
Anyhow, thanks to Bungie for creating it and for 343 for remastering it for free, plus yesterday’s backwards compatibility release!
Now Monday is the big day :smiley:

Edit: I just realized I placed this in the wrong forum. Oops. If this can be moved go General Discussion that would be great. Thanks mods!

My only problem with it was the fact that they released it as a full game instead of a 30 or 40 dollar expansion

You actually made a thread about it.
I actually enjoyed the wandering around,but sometimes it got annoying when you couldnt find the hint.

Well, I did say on Discord I would lul. Doing the same for Halo 3.

Yay! Halo 3 ODST is a great Halo game! Really is! Loved the SMG and pistol!

Dude. ODST is phenomenal. The music, the nighttime city, the character-driven story. It’s great. I’ll always cherish the experience, in a way apart from other Halos.

Exactly with you on this. Brilliant atmosphere, great departure from feeling invincible as a Spartan, and far more involvement in the world by traipsing through a city being the whole point of the game, as opposed to cities just being a backdrop.
