First of all, all of you idiots who give this game a bad review because you didn't get the Mythic Disk need to stop. Review Halo 3: ODST. Not the Mythic Disk. If you want to play online, than get the maps from the Marketplace. ODST is a good game. It easily deserves a 9 or 10. Not a 6.8 or 7 because idiots are reviewing the wrong thing. Review the game that you're looking at, not what comes with the full purchase!!!

After playing this game for just a few minutes I was already having a blast. Playing as an ODST, a normal soldier, as opposed to the normal mechanically enhanced super soldier, you really have to change your strategy. ODST's gameplay is a lot different than the other halo games, but not in a bad way. I wouldn't say it's better than the other halo games, but it's fun to have a change of pace. Firefight is wonderful. It doesn't matter if your playing with a friend sitting on the same couch, or a kid in japan. You will have fun. I've heard a lot of claims against it, like for example people keep on telling me that they take a lot of marks off of it because the BR is gone, but they brought the halo 1 pistol back, and the BR was basically just it's replacement anyway. Now that we have the old pistol back theres no need for it. Overall I give this game a 10/10.

I know people are going to be all mad about giving it a 6, but I will tell you why and give my "opinion"
The supressed guns are extremely cool....and worthless....you are not really sneaky....onces you shoot the gun the enemies basically know where you are and come charging and you definitely lack fire power to fend them off....if they would have added in like a odst silent arsenal of guns that you could have used to be like an assassin then that would have been cool....for example you should be able to quietly and quickly dispatch enemies from behind or in shadows or from afar w a sniper rifle. why would and odst jump into battle like this w a supressor and not be able to do anything w it...
good points for firefight and co op but the game is extremely lacking...and if iam not going to have master chiefs shield then atleast give me some advantages ...not just a supressed smg that does no damage and does not hide you from enemies .....or a pistol that is even weaker and completely worthless.....
