Customer Reviews for Forza 3 and Halo 3: ODST
Review 1 for Forza 3 and Halo 3: ODST
A very good deal, lots of bang for your buck
This game is perfect for: hardcore gamers
I'm not a big fan of racing games. Perhaps I haven't given them enough of a chance or perhaps I've played sub-per ones, but I'm usually not scoping out racing games when I'm at Gamestop. When I picked up my Xbox 360 Slim a year or so ago it came with 2 games: Alan Wake (which I was VERY excited about getting) and Forza 3 (which I really had no interest in.) Alan Wake became one of my all-time favorite games with it's amazing story and atmosphere. I was bored one day and decided to throw in Forza 3.... and actually really liked it. It kinda puts an RPG-type twist on racing which I really dug. Now, Halo 3: ODST puts a unique spin on FPSs. It gives you an entire city loaded with Covenant to explore while you try to piece together the mystery of your missing ODST Squad. Both of these games were not what I was expecting but both were amazing and for someone who doesn't own either: this is an excellent and cheap opportunity to pick them up. Both ODST and Forza 3 look amazing.... the only problem with this is that if you take too long to stare you'll either end up blown up by a plasma grenade (ODST) or crashing into a guardrail going 130 mph (Forza). I give ODST points in particular for the new type (for Halo) of night-vision that almost seems to present an alternate universe when turned on. You'll have to use it to understand what I mean but just know it looks REALLY cool. ODST has some of my favorite music in the Halo Series..... it leans more on melodic tunes and piano-heavy classical to get it's mood across rather than the more upbeat tracks of the other Halo games. Forza's music perfectly hits what I would WANT to hear in a racing game and the menu music is good enough to make you linger on the menus a bit longer than necessary. Both of these games are cheap and offer high replay value; something that I pretty much require in my recent gaming purchases. Forza allows you to build a stable of cars and modify them in just about any way imaginable. From body kits to gear ratio to full-on engine swaps, you can pretty much build any dream car you've ever wanted (and the multiple DLC packs allow you access to even more cars.) Halo 3: ODST gives you the tools and space to tackle the in-game missions a variety of ways; split-screen co-op only adds to the possibilities. I've probably played through the ODST campaign 4-5 times, sometimes alone and sometimes with a friend, and will likely play through it again soon. Playing as a "Regular Special Forces" guy rather than a "Demi-God-Like Spartan" leads you to play differently then you would in the numbered Halo Games.... but that is neither good nor bad, simply a different experience. As of the time of this writing (10-1-12), this combo goes for about $20. In terms of bang-for-your-buck, you'd be well off getting either of these games for $20. Getting both is quite a deal and one worth looking at if you think either of these games are up your alley. Both games have local-co-op (2-player) and ODST includes the entire Halo 3 Multiplayer Suite. With Halo Reach out and with Halo 4 coming out very soon I'm not sure how many people will still be playing Halo 3 Multiplayer.... but the Halo Community is so massive I'm fairly sure you won't have that much trouble finding a game or two.
