By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe.

Bridging the contextual gap from Halo 2 to 3 by showing us what was going on at Earth after the end of Metropolis in Halo 2 through the eyes of a common soldier. As well as providing a character driven narrative deriving thematic influences from Dante's Divine Comedy and the film-noir genre.

If you are talking about the plot of the story, it's to find out what happened to your squad when you got split up in the drop.

The point of any game is to have fun. If you're asking what's the storyline of the game...

I thought it was neat to get this part of the story from a different perspective.

Now we're talking.
Lots of people complained about not getting to fight the Covenant on Earth for real, the way the H-2 demo showed. Halo had gone Hollywood in alot of gamers' eyes. Big splosions, no humanity, all blockbuster material. So Bungie responded with a fan service piece that made it personal again. Back to the roots. Chief is Bill Shakespeare compared to the Rookie. And this time, it was personal. What's not to like ?

Walk by faith. Dude. Not by sight.

It was created to make money and is a lot of fun with a great story and great music.

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. :/

Showing what happens on Earth while the Chief is on Delta Halo, and the start of the Great Schism on Earth.

If you are talking about the plot of the story, it's to find out what happened to your squad when you got split up in the drop.

or if your talking marketing pilots ... to see just how far from the halo storyline bungie could take a game and still get people to put up the cash.

And then we got reach.

Essentially this.

ODST is one of my favourites.
