I came for Halo, but I heard the Tru7h, fought thru Carnage, and stayed for Bungie.

It would have been cool to have some sort of stealth system like in Splinter Cell. Hiding in the shadows should make you less visible to the enemy.

edit: It looks like I'm not the only one who has thought of it.

I'm not sure if I already posted in this thread, but my updated answer would be:

nothing.

I am almost 100% satisfied with ODST, and the minor things I would have done differently do not make the game any less awesome to me.

I think most of us in this thread love ODST the way it is. But, there are flaws that could be dealt with and things that could make the game better.

Yes, I love ODST the way it is. But, there are some cool things that I would've liked to have seen or would've made the game even better than the way it is now.

DLC missions. You could buy more missions to learn more about the characters. They would be like mini-campaigns, like how ODST was planned to be.

I agree, but I can't think of anything. There may be something minor that would help, but I just don't seem to have one.

I guess making the game more stealthy is one, because it is annoying when you're sniping or shooting and then everyone knows you're there. More enemies in the HUB would have been cool.

I think a better sniper mission would be nice. The Romeo mission was fun and all, but it wasn't really a sniper mission. It was too close quarters for it to really feel like a sniping mission. Then again, they were in the city at a random spot so it makes sense from a story standpoint that Romeo wasn't in the best sniping position. I wouldn't take that mission away or anything. It would've just been nice to have seen another mission with some good sniping. But, that's just a thought. It's not really that big of a deal.

I would have liked Kikowani Station to have more on-foot sections.

If the game were longer, I could see half of Kikowani Station be trying to get to the phantom and banshee and then the other half be about escorting the phantom, similar to Halo 2.

God now I wanna play some H2 campaign.

You could play as normal marines.

I understand nothing because my life is a conspiracy.

Campaign DLC. Maybe make New Mombassa bigger and have more stuff to do so it becomes more of a free roam.

Yeah, I'd like to see more collectibles or something of the sort. It's fun roaming around Mombasa Streets, but it'd be even better if there were more things to do.

It would be pretty sweet to see the new SMG in action in Halo 3. I'd also be curious to see how much damage the pistol would do to other Spartans.

I'm 23, I have a house, dog, girlfriend, job and I have no interest in any fanboyism so if you're thinking about sending me a childish PM, don't be surprised when I don't call back.

DLC missions/ Firefight maps.

Some extra DLC missions would be awesome. Especially the Elite DLC idea that ajw has. Great stuff.

I am satisfied with most of the FF maps, but I wouldn't mind some new ones.

It would have been cool if they released DLC for an Expanded Cut version of the game, which could essentially make the missions longer and make more stuff to do. I also think that we should've gotten some DLC that adds extra armor for your ODSTs, an armor customization mode, and some objective gametypes for Firefight along with XBL support.

Black Ops 2 I run two accounts warmup only at 1.97kdr...real is at 3.77. i'm in master division 4 league play. pm 4 clan inv...must have 2.5 kdr or better

Stand alone multiplayer or just more detail to the rooms inside the buildings...like allow you to enter every nook and cranny of the city. This would probably require a better engine then what they had. Also, rain...it was suppose to have rain.

I wouldn't change ODST at all except I wished it had a multilayer search so you didn't have to rely on mates having to play

The objective of war is not to die for your cause. It is to make your enemies die for theirs.

I would make add more helmet bobbing and human-like movements rather than moving like a robot. I would also ad the option of ADS. They are normal soldiers anyway. I would add some sort of multiplayer also.

I'm not sure about adding to it, but I'd like to take the ODST-Style Firefight and add it to all future Halo games. It was the best.

I would add more sections to the city, thus more missions and terminals.

Hey, I'm right there with ya, man.

I miss ODST's Firefight. Without the lag, it was amazing.
