It is rather good and before anyone asks the two questions that seem to pop up in every thread about it, I'll answer them:

a) Rupert Sanders, he's directed other 360 commercials including the Halo 3 "Believe" one.

b) it's Hungarian, it's a United Nations organisation after all.

I'm not the biggest Halo fan either but 30 quid seemed like a decent price and I'm sure it'll be worth that.

I hope this is the last use of that engine though, it's looking a bit long in the tooth.

Halo 3 was never that pretty in the first place. It really does look a bit basic now. Watched the trailer though and it's looking like it could be a pretty good way to blow 30 quid.

And I HATE Halo!

Got it yesterday, ploughed a few hours into the campaign and had a bunch of Firefight games too.

I'm surprised at just how good it is, very surprised indeed. I can now see why MS wanted to release the package at near full price point too.

Better than Halo 2 & 3 that's for sure.

Firefight is awesome.

As I said last night in Firefight I can't disagree with that, it's like Halo got its groove back.

I'm so out of the loop it's shocking - is this the first-person one, or the RTS one ?

It's the new shooter, Halo Wars is the RTS.

This one's an FPS. Halo Wars (released earlier this year) was the RTS.

I've never even played a Halo game. :)

Edit: Too late. Anyway, there's another FPS out next year as well, right - Reach? Talk about franchise milking...

Just a thought - If one buys ODST and aleady has H3 and all the maps downloaded from their initial release, can one give the multiplay disc to someone else to get them involved with the multiplayer side of things?

Yeah, other games don't get milked at all do they? :)

Franchise milking needs to happen.

Yes, but there's 3 maps unique to the ODST Halo 3 multiplayer disc. I *think* you can buy them on XBLA though. So if you bought those packs, the 2nd disc would be redundant. Unless you need it for the Reach Beta, if you're into that.

I disagree that it needs to happen although self-evidently, it's to the financial benefit of everyone involved to do so. Clearly Bungie want to have their opportunity to cash in on the franchise in the same way the MS has over the years, but they don't need to do so - how great would it be if all the resources being spent on Halo 3 spinoffs were being spent on creating new game ideas?

Not disagreeing with you there - but didn't Bungie say 3 was going to be their last Halo FPS? I was just surprised to see yet another sequel unveiled when the first one (ODST) hadn't even been released!

To be fair, I think they said it was the last Halo game with MC that they were doing.

No. They said it was the last Halo game in that story arc. That trilogy.

"Some kind of Halo side project that may or may not be an add-on, stand-alone game, comic, or movie. 8/10."

Hairy, if I had the time, I'd review it. Unfortunately all of my time is taken up playing the thing. ;)

(I'll see what I can do tomorrow though. Maybe can squeeze it in)
