    The Halo 3: ODST port on PC is essentially perfect, and so far, it's 343 Industries' best work with the Master Chief Collection.

    Today on PC, the campaign for Halo 3: ODST is a mere $4.99. A majority of the troopers may not be the most engaging, but the combat and music are a treat. The weapons, from the Spartan Laser to the Brute Plasma Rifle, are a blast to use. The game also brings ODST Firefight mode to The Master Chief Collection for all of your survival needs.

    Like all releases in the Master Chief Collection, Halo 3: ODST isn’t a perfect port. It has flaws, particularly in Firefight and with regard to the game’s audio logs. That said, the fact that 343 continues to make these games run as well as they do on a platform they were never designed for so long after their original releases is nothing short of a minor miracle. The MCC continues to improve with each patch and I have no doubt that the problems here will eventually be fixed. In the meantime, we can enjoy ODST in all of its glory. It’s still the most stylish and unique Halo game and being able to play it, and its incredible version of Firefight again, is wonderful. I’m happy to return to New Mombasa, to wander its ruined streets and let the sounds of rain and smooth jazz wash over me. More than a decade later, there’s still nothing quite like it. You know the music. Time to dance.

    Compared with the elite Spartan, although the adventures written by ODST in mortal bodies are a bit less legendary, there are more human emotions that players can resonate in the game.

    I played this game a lot on the 360, it was and still is my favorite halo game. I've beaten the campaign more times than I can remember onI played this game a lot on the 360, it was and still is my favorite halo game. I've beaten the campaign more times than I can remember on each difficulty and have marathoned it multiple times. So naturally, the very first thing I did when it launched on MCC 2 days ago was marathon it on legendary and I don't regret it. This rerelease on the pc is extremely faithful to the original version of the game. The graphics for this game have aged extremely well minus a few textures and human faces. The pseudo open world of New Mombassa is still great to explore and you still have the option of sneaking past enemies to avoid fights or killing them. Some of the hit registration and damage for weapons seemed whacky and off at times but was never a big problem, something I just noticed. This port of ODST is not only great for people who have never played the original game, but also for those that played it back on the 360. Expand

    ODST tried something different and gave us some kind of open world. it was a nice change that would came back years later in Halo Infinite.

    Halo 3: ODST is a pretty interesting addition to the franchise, but some of it moments were rather dull.

    Halo 3: ODST es probablemente el peor de los juegos de Halo y, sin duda, probablemente valga la pena saltárselo. La razón para esto esHalo 3: ODST es probablemente el peor de los juegos de Halo y, sin duda, probablemente valga la pena saltárselo. La razón para esto es sencilla: es peor en todo que el 3 y no aporta casi nada. A nivel jugable hay menor variedad de armas, de enemigos, de vehículos, y la jugabilidad se siente menos intensa y divertida (de hecho, diría que es el más fácil de todos). La trama tiene un punto de partida interesante: el contar cómo soldados normales luchan en la guerra durante la batalla de Nueva Mumbasa. Pero ya está. Por mecánicas de juego los personajes aunque son normales son tan poderosos como Master Chief, así que eso se pierde; la escuadra además está poco trabajada y su historia es inconexa, haciendo que sea difícil que nos importe lo que les pasa (a diferencia de juegos como Brothers in Arms). Y, además, no aporta nada a la historia que ya conocemos, con decir que a nivel de trama lo más interesante son los audios coleccionables que podemos recoger... Y todas estas pérdidas no son compensadas por casi ninguna novedad, haciendo el juego malo.

    Gráficamente el juego es mejor que el 3 a nivel de ejecución, pero adolece de un diseño muy malo que hace que la ciudad sea básicamente igual en casi todas partes (no pido una Night City, ¡pero que al menos varíen un poco las texturas o los diseños de los edificios!). El sonido cumple, pero sin nada especialmente relevante.

    Por todo ello, no es un FPS terrible, pero yo sinceramente me lo saltaría salvo que seas un completista de Halo. Un 4.

    Worse halo yet. After Halo 3 I was really excited, Halo Reach was good, CE, 2 and 3 were really solid and consistent. but ODST set me on aWorse halo yet. After Halo 3 I was really excited, Halo Reach was good, CE, 2 and 3 were really solid and consistent. but ODST set me on a perspective of humans, which I think it was unnecessary, didn't add something new to the lore, Halo 3 was pretty clear on what and how the story developed. This can be skip and it won't do anything to master chief storyline. Expand
