Does this include Halo 3?

From what I understand it's basically an addon at $60, but if it comes with Halo 3, I'd get it, since I don't have Halo 3 :\

They added the multiplayer maps to make it worth 60 bucks. The campaign is so short my kids went through it in a day while playing splitscreen. They played a couple hours here and there.

It's a good game but it's no differant than Halo 3. New levels, same weapons. I haven't had a chance to play the firefight mode though. That looks fun.

I wish they has made the firefight mode online like horde in GOW2 instead of looking for friends to play with all the time

Is Halo3 strictly a multi player game or can you play against the computer like the original version of this game???

The Halo 3 disc that is included is only the Matchmaking portion as well as forge, theather, custom games and every map released for Halo 3 i'd say its a very good alternative for those who do not want to play the campaign for Halo 3

I finally have been able to put maybe 5 hours into ODST, great game and don't understand the haters. Yes it is possible to beat it in a handful of hours if you simply run to every checkpoint on easy and ignore the majority of the game. If you actually play it, it is a good 10 hours and of course if you are an achievement whore it would probably take even longer especially on legendary. The pistol from Halo 1 is back as well as the health system so you don't just run in to a group of enemies and kill them, you stay back and play more strategically. I've always liked sitting back and sniping enemies so this is right up my alley. One improvement I really like is the achievement counter that pops up on the screen and relays your progress. A few things I don't like are getting lost or missing a door that you need to go through as well as no good flashlight so dark rooms and hallways are a bit of a PITA to navigate.

Also the game was sold for $50 on Amazon with another $10 credit towards a future game purchase plus no tax.

I personally only like the multiplayer part and didnt buy halo 3 so with firefight and all halo 3 maps included with odst i find it a great deal.

I've put a few hours in on Reach, not bad. Best thing is I now have more people to play firefight with that previously didn't have ODST.

I'm on. Enjoying it when I have the time. I'm digging it so far.

It'll be nice once the game ships. This tease until the 19th is going to be over too quickly.
