Halo 3: Recon Renamed Something Awful


Back during TGS in October, Microsoft and Bungie took the wraps off of Halo 3: Recon, the standalone prequel expansion to Halo 3. Seems Bungie wasn’t quite happy with that initial title for some reason, though, as they’ve now gone and changed it to Halo 3: ODST. ODST is the acronym for Orbital Drop Shock Trooper, which is the character you will be playing as, so it makes sense. But sensible or not, I don’t quite understand the need to change away from Recon (maybe Bungie was worried it’d get lumped in with the Ghost Recon games or something). All’s I know is Halo 3: ODST sounds silly. But oh well, bad title or not it’s the quality of the game that ultimately counts.
