XBox360,FPS,4/10 – Sep 2009
I loved the TV series called “Firefly” and always thought it’d make a good computer game, so it seems Christmas had come early – Mal (Nathan Fillion), the Firefly captain is in the latest Halo game together with Jane (Adam Baldwin), and Wash (Alan Tudyk). I found the trailer REALLY exciting:
It was a massive let down. I played co-operative mode and we seemed to be wandering dark gloomy streets the whole time. The story line is set as a prequel to Halo 3 so I was expecting a Spartan to show up at some point, perhaps even Master Chief, but no. It was really short too – I think half the total gameplay time was spent stuck looking for a object which turned out to be a broken rifle caught up in some overhead telephone wires.
By the way the “ODST” stands for Orbital Drop Shock Troopers – don’t you just hate non-obvious acronyms that aren’t clearly pointed out?
