It has 2 different styles of Gameplay, and personally I didn't like how they started the game, specifically no map. I can see how people may get dicouraged to play the game from just first few minutes b/c it not very noob friendly.Just played ODST, I gave it the 15 minute test, where I immediately got bored and didn't give a shit after 15 minutes. It was crap. It's Halo stuff in a random FPS game. Did not like.
