I wouldn't mind that. It'd give us more missions, so why not?

The who wishes, fervently wishes

Just had a fantastic idea, but not for the game, for maybe a sequel. Free-roam.
Just that simple thought blew my mind.

Have there be a matchmaking where everyone goes into Mombasa in a free-roam free for all, all pitted against each other- all the meanwhile having to fight against the covenant as well.

Easter Egg Hunter. Apprentice Tricker/Glitcher (learning from Grumpy and Sliding Ghost).

Trying to get Waypoint to update Halo 3 stats in detail like here. Now no one can see that my Halo 3 Spartan no longer looks like my Reach Spartan.

Really want to be a Heroic member or have a title. :/

The regular Plasma Rifle instead of the brute variant. I don't really see why they didn't use either both or just the regular one.

More control over weapons. I don't know about anyone else, but if I shoot an automatic weapon for a long period of time, the aim starts going upward unless I look down.

More use of the Elephant/Olifant. It seems like every time there is a big, unique vehicle, we always have to escort it instead of actually using it. Like in Halo 2 where Johnson gets the Scarab you were going to take and you end up in a banshee giving it cover fire.

I would also like to see more of either the Specter or Revenant.

I have to disagree. The Armor Abilities in Reach were terrible. I would not like them close to ODST.

You mean like taking huge risks then replenishing your health with Drop Shield?

Or using Hologram to assassinate every single Elite because they go nuts every time?

Yeah right....

A real ending. Seriously...That highway sequence was absolute BS. Have done a lot of Halo-ing, and that was the most slanted/ridiculous thing I've ever endured. Nonsense.

The Keyes escort is easily forgotten.

Cons of the Oliphant escort segment:

-you have to use a vehicle
-you have to keep up with the Oliphant
-the damn thing easily gets destroyed
-it's possible to flip it but the occupants don't exit and it teleports upright

I hate it when developers try to stop players from messing around just so the game stays difficult.

Despite all the tricking people did in CE and Halo 2, it was mostly ignored. Altering cutscenes... dead. Collecting AI... dead. :(

I liked the sense of invasion it gave, though. When you see that Scarab roll by and the ships firing down in the distance.

That was well done and much better handled than Reach. I didn't feel invaded at all in Reach. But, that's a different story.

Funny ... didnt bungie say ODST was way more than an expansion pack?

  • 10.27.2012 2:21 AM PDT

When Marines can't do it, and there ain't no Spartan to save the day... Only the ODST's are up for the job.

If I could add one thing, more interactions with Rookie and Vergil in the story. While the audiophiles made for interesting view, and the city was great back drop, both character interacted in the gameplay more than in the story, and trust me, they needed more interaction story wise.

But I'm fine with what I got. The gameplay gave the character development that was missing in the story.

Games I like:,
Half-Minute Hero
MBU
Portal
Halo 3 is the best Halo ever
Maps I like: Turf, Avalanche, Pylon, Sandbox, Breakpoint and many more.

All the buildings can be entered, and have brken debris which can be jumped across to get into another SkyScraper.

Open world would have been great ... but gotta remember this was on the same halo engine.

But yeah, the mood of the game would have suited.
Plus even a GTA style free roam multiplayer mode would have been fun.

Holy frickin frick.
Get out of my mind, Sliding...
Have been warring with myself as to the second best Halo level ever...(Two Betrayals as the best, of course...)

Yikes.

Yes? ODST is a full retail game. Not DLC, not an expansion pack. It's own game. And it deserves that title. Just because it doesn't have multiplayer doesn't make it not a game.

Guide to immortality : Sleep with Life

I had a pretty big time thread once.

Here's me bragging about it.

Well one important thing I would have done with ODST is change how this game was treated. They gave ODST such little support after release. Bungie didn't defend ODST at all with all the hate it was getting, and basically conceded that it was a $60 expansion pack. And to add insult to injury, for those of us, like myself, who loved ODST..well we were just left in the dust.

This game deserved some DLC. I'd say some story-related content. Think Batman: Arkham City's Harley Quinn's Revenge DLC. It also deserved AT LEAST 4-5 DLC firefight maps. I will argue with anyone about how ODST firefight destroyed Reach's sad, sad version. Getting 200,000 points on every map was great fun. Did I not love some maps? Yeah, but I liked how I was forced to at least try them for the sake of achievements. And contrary to what many people wanted, I thought firefight matchmaking hurt Reach more than anything. The best part of ODST firefight was fighting with your friends. In a sense, you and your friends were soldiers fighting for your lives, rather than playing with a bunch of AFK'ers for a short, boring match.

All ODST needed was support. I loved the campaign. If I wasn't so nostalgic for Halo 2 and 3, I'd probably put it at #1. Heck story wise I'd definitely have it at #1, it just couldn't compare co-op wise with the other two in my opinion. And of course firefight was an inventive game mode. I liked horde from Gears of War, but I thought this gametype fit Halo better.

Bungie dropped the ball, plain and simple. In fact, I'd say right after ODST's release it was immediately downhill for them. Reach was a disaster, and honestly I think Microsoft wanted them gone. They promised after Reach that Halo 3 would still have double xp weekends for some time after, and that never materialized. They just tried to please everyone, from CoD gamer to casual, and failed miserably. Of course this is completely off topic and I apologize. I just feel ODST could have been even better, and I hate to see how it was treated.

Make the city mu much bigger, so you can go to the part where the skycrapers are, that would have been very fun (sorry for bad english)

I would have definitely added a multiplayer. If Bungie needed to stray away from the Halo formula it would have been best if it were done in a spinoff like ODST.

I would add lots of things:
1) a "real" drop during a battle behind the enemy lines;
2) a mission playing as normal marines;
3) a cover system like the killzone one and less stamina;
4) better marine armors, like the reach ones.
Maybe 343i can do a full game with these features, but too many players want to feel like a super-soldier with super-muscles.

Edit: goldeneagle, you're so -blam!- right!
