Halo 3: ODST, impressions. The streets of New Mombasa shine on PC

First to arrive last to leave. Halo 3: ODST lands on PC as part of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection. A port that offers different elements that make it more attractive to walk through the streets of New Mombasa again. We are separated by almost 11 years since its release on Xbox 360. Although it came as a spin-off side profile, it quickly became one of the most beloved installments by fans.

The lack of dedicated multiplayer didn’t limit its own battery of new additions to the Halo formula. We saw the start of filming, a game mode capable of concentrating the best of combat while allowing us to share the experience with our friends in cooperative. Not to mention its campaign structure, atypical compared to numbered deliveries. All the ingredients are on the table, this time on a platform that gives you the freedom to express your visual capabilities.

The myth of Halo 3: ODST speaks for itself. If the Halo saga already has a special aura around it, the misadventures of this group of orbital drop shock troopers pose a different perspective than controlling Spartan 117. We’re talking about a campaign that has such renowned missions to its credit. such as Police, Reserva Uplift or Autopista de la Costa, among others. It is part of the living history of your universe.

For those who are discovering it for the first time, you should be aware of the differences in terms of approach. We mentioned earlier the change of structure in the campaign. If you play it as designed, you’ll have to search the city streets for clues as to what happened to your party. Finding these pieces allows us to experience the events first hand through the eyes of each member. Although with the collection we can jump between them directly, those moments of solitude in New Mombasa are worth living. It really conveys the feeling of surviving the Covenant. Behind enemy lines.

We are not Spartans. We embody a group of soldiers who feel and suffer with the scant armor they wear. Although there are no major differences in gameplay, the shootouts are focused on close combat. It is a guerrilla war in which all parties must adapt to the moment; we don’t know what threat awaits us when we turn the corner.

Bungie Artificial Intelligence Seal has a unique flavor. Thanks to this short distance, it is possible to observe in detail how a Brute commands his troops, or how the Jackals take position while the Grunts serve as a distraction. There are epic battles, vehicle missions, transitions… It goes without saying that it is one of the most complete campaigns in the saga, always maintaining quality.

On the graphics side, the title allows you to configure the visual and performance options at the same level of detail as its fellow collectors, including enhanced graphics options. Playing Halo 3: ODST with a keyboard and mouse is as comfortable as it is with a remote control. This is not the case with Reach, for example, which conveys the feeling of being designed for the traditional control method.

The Master Chief Collection is the best opportunity to discover or revisit a classic.
