I'm not gonna lie, i wasn't sold right away on Halos newest installment in its legendary series. I was skeptical as to the freshness that would be presented in Halo: ODST, but after taking the leap of faith and buying the game, I'll tell you i couldn't be more pleased. The cut scenes are epic, background music totally flip on its head, and the feel of realism is there every step of the way. Over all its a different animal than the traditional, 'Master Chief Smash' feeling i got from the previous halo games. There is more thinking and team work as you get farther up in difficulty in Halo: ODST than ive seen previously from the series. Firefight mode could use some tweaking i think, but the idea, im assuming has been taken from Gears of War's 'Horde' mode, is sound and very appealing but without others to play along side you, that is a larger portion of the online community, it loses its 'zing' after the first hour or so of play. However, the campaign is sound, not too long however, which was a slight disappointment but still, one i have had no problem playing through more than once. All and all a class "A" game, and gets 5 stars in my book.
