Compared to the sweeping galactic saga that is the original Halo trilogy, ODST’s plot is decidedly small-scale. Intimate. You won’t experience any earth-shattering revelations, or be blown away by too many breathtaking setpieces. You certainly won’t feel like you’re saving the universe. Some players will undoubtedly be bored, but after eight years of increasingly convoluted story threads that often required the help of novelizations and comic books to unravel, we felt refreshed.

Six hours of new story, an optional side story, a new multiplayer mode, 24 maps and new Achievements all comprise Halo 3: ODST. Halo fans are going to like ODST no matter what and Firefight will ensure that Halo continues to dominate the top of the Xbox Live charts for a very long time. The overall package is great, but some of the nagging issues hurt the experience for me.

Halo 3: ODST fills in a few interesting spots in the Halo timeline, even if the characters themselves aren't strong enough to carry the narrative. But it strikes a healthy balance between new twists and more content done in Bungie's trademark style. The more important thing is that if you've enjoyed playing Bungie's Halo games in the past, chances are you'll continue to enjoy that style in ODST.
