New content for online play was going to be the reason for my purchase. If story mode is the only new thing for the game, it just turned into a renter.

I don't like it. I am not a huge halo fan, but through half the game you can't see shit unless you have the helmet visor crap on. It looks like tron when the visor is highlighting friendlies yellow, bad guys red, and weapons blue.

The co-op campaign mode is pretty fun, and my friends made it a little harder so bad guys will actually try to run away from frags.

My friend is upset he traded in Batman (badass game btw) for ODST.

I'll at least rent it. I'm hoping it's more tactical than Halo 3. Like taking cover, etc...

...also, did they add a sprint option? I think being able to sprint in halo might add a little to the gameplay.

You can't take cover like in gears but you can cover behind large vehicles like buses, also you will need to be tactical about how you aproach each fight.

you have "stamina" instead of a shield like MC and when its gone you need to avoid combat to get it back. If you take damage while stamina is gone you don't regen you have to find a health pack.

Personally I like this was better than playing as MC it adds more challenge and makes legendary that much harder

I don't really remember how it worked in Halo:CE but basically the shield goes away and you will take damage, the shield will regen if you find cover but you have to find a health pack to restore the health portion

Edit: just noticed your second question, no they did not add sprint, which sucks because I've spent most of my time playing COD4 since H3 was taken over buy kids

They extended the warranty by 3 years to fix the 3 red lights so it is probably more than the cables not being plugged in.

Nope its a internal issue, the game loaded fine then right before the campaign started it just froze, restarted and it wouldnt boot up then it would and freeze then 3 red lights.

This xbox has been into MS for red lights 3 times and the last time I just pulled it apart, fixed it right and it has been great till now. Owell, Im just gonna get a new elite tomorrow.

Yeah, that's how it worked. You have a shield that depletes then a small health bar.

Nice! I'd love to upgrade my 20gb as it is completely full. If I weren't afraid of being banned i'd just throw in a 120gb laptop drive.

it depends on how you play it, if you go looking for all the collectables it CAN be 10+ but if you just blow threw it its about 4.5-5.5 hrs

Well, I'm a couple of hours in to it. I just beat the level where at the end you fly a vehicle in the gap in the city wall.

It's pretty cool. I like sneaking up on patrol units, sticking the brute and picking off all the grunts when they're running around confused.

I thought it was pretty cool. Just got done with it. I really wish they would've focused more on rookie making his way through town and built more of a story off of that. What's up with the african chicks story? I think I found about a dozen of the audio logs.

I was wondering about that too.....what does it matter about her. Of course, I didn't sit still and listen to them either.


I would have liked to see a more in-depth story for this game, but I'm not complaining either. My roomate and I ran through the campaign on Normal. Took about six hours. The waypoint system is pointless, IMO.

I was hoping you'd end up meeting up with the other squad members as you progress, and build a fighting force as you get further. But, the flashback battles were sweet too.

Firefight is the shit! Lost Platoon map on Legendary is brutal, I just wish you could system link for 4 player Firefight action, that'd be nasty, lol.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

I know you can play 3-4 player on Firefight via XBOX Live....

But my question is this, can you play 3-4 player Firefight through System Link?

I don't see why you couldn't. It lets you do 2 player per box and system link is an option

I really enjoy this game. It feels a lot more tactical than playing as Master Chief especially on the harder settings.
