Say bye-bye to Master Chief and say hello to the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers. In this entry of the Halo franchise you no longer play as the green, armored super-soldier but instead take on the role of The Rookie, an ODST that is separated from his squad in the ruined city of New Mombasa. Chronicling the events that happened on Earth while Master Chief was fighting on the Delta Halo in Halo 2, Halo 3: ODST has a completely different tone than the rest of the Halo games. Shields and power-ups are gone, but thankfully you have the new ODST VISR to feed you data and help identify Covenant targets on the dark, ruined streets of New Mombasa. As the Rookie makes his way through the ruined city he will come across remnants of the battles his teammates have been fighting in. When you come across these sections of the game a flashback sequence will occur and you will take the role of one of the Rookie's teammates: Dutch, Mickey, Romeo,or Gunnery Sergeant Buck. Can you find your squad and discover what the Covenant are looking for on Earth? Prepare to drop.
