6. Halo 3: ODST (Xbox 360)



We confess to having a bit of a soft spot for Halo 3: ODST. But there's not getting past the fact that the game is too short. Way too short. It should have been released as a mid-priced expansion, as per Bungie's original intention. At full price, we expect a bit more meat on our Spartan bones. The lack of matchmaking in the online Firefight mode is also a major letdown (especially if you're a Nigel No-Friends). [He speaks from bitter experience. — Ed.]

In an attempt to boost the perceived value of the game, Microsoft opted to split the single-player campaign and multiplayer maps across two discs. The only thing this achieved was to annoy lazy gamers who had to peel themselves from their couch more than necessary. [See above. — Ed.]
