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 really went in with high hopes for this game, The video cinematics Awesome but gameplay just doesn't feel like Halo, maybe when I try the multiplayer firefight modes, but so far it doesn't feel like a full Halo release, more like DLC than a full release but I guess the second disc with all the Halo maps are probably worth the buy for hardcore Halo fans, but to me I would wait until it's a lower price.
