While not being the biggest Halo fan I do still have to take my hat off to Bungie and Microsoft when it comes to marketing their game.
Every single time a new version of Halo is preparing to get released I get sucked into the hype and end up really looking forward to it’s release.
With Halo Reach I wasn’t even remotely interested but then this video was released and now I am hooked.
I really like the addition of assassinations, as long as they can only be performed from behind, as well as the jet packs which if done right will add an awesome vertical experience to the game.
I can’t really tell if the Splinter Cell Conviction styled informative writing is purely for this demo but I really hope we see that in the main game as well.
So if you haven’t gotten yourself a copy of Halo: ODST yet and you want to join in the Beta coming on May 3rd I would strongly recommend going and picking up a copy.
What’s even more impressive is that all this footage is from the Alpha versionâ€¦
