Late last night, we brought you a review and a video review of Halo 3: ODST. It’s one of year’s most anticipated titles and it takes the Halo series in a slightly new direction with all of its new features. Is it worth the purchase though? You’ll have to read the review to find out for yourself.
If words aren’t your thing, we have plenty of new images from Halo 3: ODST’s Firefight mode as well as some images from the new Mythic maps for the original multiplayer mode of Halo 3. Firefight, to me, is worth the purchase alone and you’re going to find yourself devoting a ton of time to it.
Jumping from Firefight to regular multiplayer mode may confuse some people for awhile, as it did for me. After spending a good portion of the day playing the single-player and Firefight mode at the review event, we all jumped into the deathmatch multiplayer of Halo 3 to check out the new Mythic maps. It wasn’t until half way into the first match that I remembered I could use Equipment items and dual wield guns again. I actually said out loud “Oh right, I’m a Spartan again! Awesome!”
Sure, it’s a ton of fun playing Firefight, but it’s also nice playing as a genetically enhanced badass. Plus, killing other people is always more gratifying then killing the AI.
