The beauty of media is that is transplants you from your realty and puts you into the book, movie, or in this case, the video game. HALO has been the main reason the xBox did not fail as a video game platform. It was the reason people purchased the game system. Halo spawned Halo 2, Halo 3, and now the newest and best sequel, Halo 3: ODST.
With Halo 3: ODST, you are The Rookie and you’re dropped into the middle of New Mombasa while the enemy tries to take control of the planet, Planet Earth. In a botched drop, your team is spread all around New Mombasa. Your goal is to find your team and save the planet.
Unlike other versions of the Halo franchise, the key to this game is stealth. You must maneuver through the city, avoiding or eliminating the enemy. Throughout the game, you will be transplanted to the other members of your drop team and run missions as that team member.
Finally, Microsoft likes to spend money on HALO commercials. This is one of their best.
