Halo 3 ODST is the latest Halo game from Bungie. Originally planned as DLC (that’s downloadable content for you greens), there’s enough spit and polish gone into this fine example of a game to push it into prime time status. A full retail release.
It don’t hurt that it also includes a Halo 3 multiplayer disc. The full Halo 3 multiplayer suite as if you were playing the original and it’s fully backwards compatible. Anyone out there tho didn’t jump in on the original Halo 3’s “map packs” can get them n’ more here. That makes this disc shiny and your Halo 3 disc all manner of useless.
For the fans who did pony up the dough, you’re fan enough to appreciate the main adventure. For fans who don’t care about playing Halo multiplayer, this title ain’t for you. It may be the best Halo single-player campaign, but make no mistake: this is still Halo.
I finally beat Gears of War 2. I played through the entire campaign on Hardcore difficulty, co-op with Detnap. Together we defeated the 5 Acts of the campaign, each more varied than the one before. For any fan of Gears 1, Gears 2 is a must-play, and easy to recommend to any fan of shooter mechanics. However, despite accessibility, Gears 2 is not as easy to jump into.
