- Story and characters feel completely sterile, yet the game keeps trying to make us care
Final Grade: A-
Unfortunately, when you open it, disappointment sets in, no poster, no catalog, it even has the same boring 48 trial card as ODST.
The manual isn't looking much better, once again trying to emulate a field manual, though instead of taking pointers from Ensemble's Halo Wars, they decided to use the same sterile look as ODST, even its contents are somewhat lacking, it doesn't tell you the game's backstory nor does it give you any descriptions for the main characters, though it does have some nice tables explaining the strong points and weaknesses of every weapon and vehicle.
Not a bad packaging overall, but it's definitely not up to par to its predecessors
Packaging Score: C+
