Enter “The Green Box.” The question we’ve all been asking ourselves: Is Halo 3: ODST worth $60? If you want the answer, this is your review:
In hindsight, announcing what was then “Halo 3: Recon” as a “value-oriented” expansion appears to have been a crucial first misstep for Microsoft and Bungie along the road to marketing what is now Halo 3: ODST. In time, the so-called expansion grew to include a complete campaign with 4-player support; Firefight, a separate co-op multiplayer mode; a comprehensive version of Halo 3 multiplayer; and access to the Halo: Reach beta when it becomes available at an unspecified date next year. ODST was ultimately set at the standard, full-game price of $60. That’s when folks got skeptical.
So how’s your money being spent?
