TIme to take back the city.

When you think of Halo you get the image of Master Chief in your head. Now that’s for everything or at least a Spartan image pops into your head.

But what if your wrong about a halo instead of Master Chief your put into the shoes of an O.D.S.T. an Orbital Drops Shock Trooper. You put in the middle of the ruins that’s called New Mombasa. Your the Rookie, of course. Your dropped in the middle of Halo2, right when a Covenant ship that your suppose to drop unto (I think) then uses slipspace to another Halo ring. The ship causes an explosion on large proportions and throws you and your team off course and into hell. After all that’s what ODST’s are called,”Hell Jumpers” they jump right into a hell zone. On arrival you find yourself stuck in your pod. This is the looking tutorial for the camera. You press the buttons to eject after that you find a health pack. A little bit into the game you find out that you have an entire city to explore. And what would a Halo game be without The Covenant forces to give you a challenge.

As You progress through the game you have to find your lost team mates who are lost as well, but it’s nothing as to finding them then you have a party kinda deal it’s more in the Flashbacks when you find their equipment that’s been left behind. That’s right your playing detective and along the way you can find audiofiles of a women.You get a new feature it’s a visor that helps you out. It helps you find enemies, audio files and the such.

I find that the mixture of flashbacks of the other ODSTs is just a great way of story telling. In these flashback I kinda felt that they do have personalities and they aren’t just ODSTs they’re human.

During these flashbacks you find yourself placed in different parts of the city helping out marines fight against the Covenant forces. Every soilder has a story and at the end they all collide. It’s a great way of telling the stories and having good gameplay. Also you have a great actor Nathan Fillion playing voicing an ODST.

Now I have one problem with the Covenant forces you fight. The Brute forces arn’t really suppose to be there just yet, you still have to fight against The Elites before Brute, you see none of the Elites, just their dead bodies.

I really can’t find anything really wrong about it. Infact this is a contestant for My game of the year Awards. If you have played Halo:Combat Evolved and remember the health packs you needed in it then you have the same problem here, finding the fuckers aren’t all that difficult! You get a new enemy as well, the engineers become weapons this time around, they give the covenant forces extra shield strength. The game has much to offer this time around. It started out as a quick download off the Xbox live market place to a full fledged game that has greatness in it’s very soul. It’s a new twist to a great game series. Halo was getting old, but now it’s been refreshed. I thank Bungie for giving Halo another couple of games before they suppository stop the Halo making and cranking out new stuff.

Bungie I belive that you have not giving up on Halo, not because of the money, but really for the greatness you still have to offer the world. That and your still rising up in the world, I know about the Seven Steps. Trust me Bungie, I know.
