And if that doesn't keep the ODST disc in your Xbox for months, let's not forget that ODST comes bundled with another disc, the Halo 3 Mythic disc, which contains the entire Halo 3 multiplayer experience, with all the downloadable content so far, AND three new maps. That's 24 maps, Forge, Save Films and File Share. And you can play that against all current Halo 3 owners too.
ODST is no rush job and to call it an expansion is unfair. This is a meaty, loud and epic new Halo with a superb new campaign and an awesome co-op multiplayer mode with all the Halo 3 multiplayer shenanigans thrown in for good measure.
It may be a little short and it's not a far cry from what Halo fans have seen already. But it's more of the same industry-defining quality you expect from Bungie. Halo fans, it's time to book the week off work/school.
A full-fat Covenant-killing romp. Who needs Master Chief?
- New flavour of play in the open-world Mombasa
- Firefight mode will consume you
- The shortest campaign so far
- No significant surprises for Halo veterans
