To be honest, I rented this title, missing out on the “Reach” beta but, whatever. This was partly due to the fact that when “ODST” first came out I fell for what the reviewers were telling me; “ODST is little more than an add-on.” Given that I was so very over playing “Halo 3” I thought I wouldn’t bother. Don’t make my mistake, if you’ve put off playing it because you didn’t want “Halo 3.5” stop being a fool and rent the damn thing. If you’re looking to 100% the achievements, however, bear in mind that a couple of the achievements (e.g. Vidmasters: Endure and Déjà vu to be precise) require a 4-player co-op which can be difficult to come by given the age of the game and the need to schedule with other like-minded individuals.

It’s a fun little game that had the potential to really rival others in its franchise but, due to some poor choices in the setting and characters, it comes off as a bit childish and outdated. Definitely worth a rent for the “Halo” fan-boys, maybe a straight up purchase if you can find it used. It was a blast to play and set the stage for the much more refined “Halo: Reach.”
