It's not really linked to Halo 3. It takes place during Halo 2 after the Metropolis mission (I think) in New Mombasa just after the Covenant ship does a slipspace jump above the city and wrecks it.

Thanks. As a continuity obsessive, I'll maybe tackle it after Halo 2 then! :)

How long did you give it? It takes about 10 times longer than any other game to find a match.

ODST was amazing. Really jealous of those getting to play it at 1080/60.

I can see why a lot of folks rate this so highly in the Halo series. It's a lot shorter but it's also probably the only Bungie Halo game not to have seriously gooseberry fool level like Library, Cortana and a lot Halo 2's campaign. Playing it on Legendary was a lot of fun and for 6 year old game the AI is pretty good. I wouldn't mind seeing 343 try something new with Halo 5's structure like Bungie did with this. Definitely the best pistol in a Halo game since Halo 1 :datass:

Did you get the free month of Xbox Live? This and that seem to go hand in hand.
