Reviewer: ODST is 'underwhelming'

banned7y, 4m agoPosted 7 years, 4 months ago
I don't have a 360, so this doesn't bother me either way. I did play Halo 3 which i liked. however full price for what is essentially an expansion pack seems a bit of a con. Do you think Microsoft are just milking it?
Are the reviews going to be based on fears that fanboys will be up in arms if the scores are below 9?
Are you looking forward to it, or will it be more of the same?

Reviews simply wont matter, the fan base for a new halo game is HUGE,. it will be bought regardless..
suspended#2
Microsoft milk everything. Quite similar to the Call of Duty series, release the game at twice the normal price and then charge them for extra maps too
#3
looks pants imo, all about modern warfare 2 for me. Nothing will beat Halo 3 and yes they are just milking it
#4
Microsoft are the biggest milkers ever.

Halo 3 for me was pants and any other game similar is - but it has alot of fans, more than CoD and MW I would say - just peoples different opinions I suppose.
#5
MW2 will walk all over it, but i'd still like to play it purely for Co-op. A non-essential 8/10 is my prediction.
#6


9.5 LOL

Theres no way in hell, this is a 9.5 game. Having completed it myself, id give it a 7.3 :thumbsup:

It really is most peculiar that no credible reviews have surfaced as yet, its very odd for an embargo on reviews to be in place so close to release.


Maybe they are worried reviews will confirm it really isn't a $60 game.......................

Great game like halo 3. Once again a great multiplayer campaign experience.

Halo 3 released 25th Sept 2007, IGN review (which one presumes they published as soon as the embargo ended) 23 Sept 2007.

Seems to be normal Bungie practice.

They have had 2 years to work on it so imagine it will be a full game and is bound to review and sell very well. Never rated Halo personally.

Yer that's your opinion so that's up to you and I presume you are playing the official "full" UK version which I doubt as it's not out till Tuesday even though 1 company sent out some today) which would mean that you would of had to have" finsihed it" and also played all the online modes, Halos biggest strength in one day!!!!! and not everyone is going to like every game that reviews give 9 -10 scores no matter what game or console it's on. especially if it's not there favorite type of game and they prefer football or something.

Anyway another is now up 9/10

The buyers will reflect the real scores anyway so let's see what the sales are in the next two weeks..


Not really? Ever heard of hype? Just because loads of people bought the game don't mean they're happy once they've bought it? It's the aftermath. Take the wii for example it was (maybe still is) winning in sales but everyone I knew had sold it on because it was boring sales don't tell us much about the console except its hype and popularity.
#11
The fact that so many people still play Halo 3 online suggests some ppl enjoy it.

P.S. Reviews are out now and it is getting the 8/10 range.
banned#12
currently 85 on Metacritic
http://www.metacritic.com/games/platforms/xbox360/halo3odst

The second hand section in your local game shop reflects the score a week after release, if it's full of ODST's then it was hyped.
I think fans of the series who aren't on Live will probably feel a little bit robbed judging by the reviews, the single player only lasts for 4-5 hours, which isn't enough for a full price game.
Why didn't they just release it as an expansion, as originally planned?

ive just been playing halo odst with my nephew as we have done with the previous 3 installments and i have to say this is the worst one, basically microsoft have let bungie just churn out this carp. every area just looked the same, theres nothing new, nothing to get your attention its just a mish mash of halo's

yeh exactly , people either hate a game or like it.

For instance Metal Gear Solid some people just hate it , but its an awesome game.
