Halo 3: Recon is your old version of Halo 3 with a new face. There have been no changes to the standard Halo formula as you’ll still be in first person view mode for optimal bastard blasting. The one difference Bungie’s stressing is that since you’re taking control of an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper (ODST) you won’t be able to run and gun quite as easily as the super-hero soldier Master Chief. Instead you’ll have to choose your battles wisely which is probably how the title “recon” comes into play. What you’ll specifically be doing is wiping clean the covenant infested city of New Mombasa from behind enemy lines in plenty of dark, nighttime settings. Also, don’t expect cameos from Master Chief or anyone else from the normal Halo proper as they are off doing their own thing when this game takes place.
