On 22 September 2009, the wait will finally be over for Halo fans the world over, as the latest game set in the Halo Universe is released.
Your Character in the game is a member of the human UNSC soldiers known as Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODSTs) and is in combat during the events prior to Halo 3.
Since the soldier, , does not possess Master Chief’s advanced armor, reflexes and strength, he is more vulnerable to gunfire and therefore should result in players being forced to act more cautiously compared to the previous games.
If like I was, you are not 100% sure that you will be buying this game, please spare the next 1 minute 32 seconds to watch this video clip. Filmed in a Saving Private Ryan camera style, you cannot fail to be hurtled into the action.
Changed your mind yet? Thought so, I know I did and thats with not even seeing any game footage!
Daniel Lipscombe, a friend of mine, and also a freelance games writer had the opportunity of attending a preview in London in July. Follow this link to read about his initial impressions.
For me, after watching, it went from a possible purchase to an essential purchase. I think we can safely say that its arrival will signal that the Games Drought will have came to an end.
