Again, I don't think reviewers have any business making value judgements based on price, and I think Bungie's decision to charge 60 dollars for the game is irrelevant. What IS relevant is their decision to pad the game to make it plays longer because of that. A game that can be beaten in one hour but is so good you play it over and over again is better than a game that takes 6 hours but is filled with dull and uninteresting parts.
What do the games that people play over and over had in common? That's right, every second of their play is stimulating. From what I've been hearing, ODST is in fact TOO LONG (as are most games in general).
