Halo series?

If you really think about it, when the very first Halo came out, everybody was crazy about it! If you didn’t have it, you technically weren’t a gamer. When I first played that game I was hooked, and it was a great game, why not? Halo was a gamers best friend. Next in line was Halo 2, after the first great Halo game, the sequel should be good and expected to be better than the first. It wasn’t as addicting but it was still fun and playable, once again it was great for party games and just something to do when you got bored. Xbox live also made it extremely fun to game with other people instead of just your friends.

Now this is where the problem steps in, Halo 3.. From my personal experience, I can say that the Halo series has been giving up on their games, it was an amazing game at first, but then they just seemed to be putting something together and trying to make it great. Halo 3 did not match up with the story line and didn’t even make sense. Aliens and little flood creatures were cool. But flying monkeys? oook…. I didn’t like this concept of the game, they needed an new enemy for the Master Chief so they put in monkeys…

Alright, Xbox live was still fun, but it seemed like they took out some of the same capabilities as Halo 2, such as the ability to jump farther and avoid grenades easier along with dodging the hammer is impossible. If your definitely good enough you can counter though. It seems as if you have control of grenades, you have control of the game, which makes the game a little more interesting.

Halo ODST was the same old spartan fight except you die faster. They even required you to buy ODST to be able to play MLG which I thought was just a quick way for Bungie to get a quick buck. Halo Wars was an interesting game, it had the concept of spartans fighting aliens along with some Starcraft/Warcraft gameplay going on. It was fairly new and interesting but I wasn’t interested, they had limited units and not enough strategy. Simple way of putting it, it was too easy.

The next Halo game is said to be Halo Reach which gamers are looking forward to because of Project Natal. Project Natal as you all know is something like the Wii with motion sensor technology except its supposed to be alot better at capturing movements than the Wii. You can check out all of the features in an earlier post I made.

That’s all for Halo, stay tuned for more on Project Natal.

Halo 3:ODST features a new campaign played from the perspective of an ODST in the heart of a Covenant occupied New Mombasa. In addition to sleuthing around the city and piecing together the details surrounding your squad’s whereabouts

This new title is a more straightforward account of the experience that awaits and the role you will assume as you explore the streets of New Mombasa. But don’t worry, you can still has Recon. (the armor that is, it’s still tied to the Vidmaster achievements and will be accessible via the final retail release next Fall).

“ODST” is the acronym for “Orbital Drop Shock Trooper.” This special forces branch of the UNSC military force is called into action for highly specialized, small scale operations. ODST units were deployed during portions of the Halo 2 and Halo 3 campaign and have also been featured in some of the Halo novels. To learn more about this elite military operation.
Halo 3 : ODST will drop into stores next Fall and the Halo 3 Mythic Map Pack will be coming to Xbox LIVE Marketplace sometime early next year. Everything currently on Xbox live about Recon will be replaced the new name, any content already downloaded will have its name chaned to Halo 3:ODST.
