Publisher Microsoft Halo is back, albeit without series’ talisman Master Chief. Instead, it’s the turn of the Orbital Drop Shock Trooper (ODST) to lead humanity’s fight against alien hostiles the “Covenant”. An engaging storyline driven by the camaraderie between ODSTs helps dispel any lingering doubts over the Chief’s absence, while a new night-vision visor mode is a great addition. Multiplayer benefits from improvements, too, and the new “Firefight” mode –which involves surviving against ever more powerfulwaves of enemies – will ensure you’ll play this long after completing the single-player campaign.
