I pre-ordered it too, and I'm going to have to wait until after school tomorrow to pick it up. I know a few people that are actually skipping school tomorrow to play it. Not Fair.

My review of Halo Reach:

Ahem.

*noises from the audience*

AHEM. Silence please.

Ah, right, um... Well, you play as... some guy, and your objective is to...do... some thing. The gameplay is much like the... previous games, with the exception of... some things.

There are also some flaws, but most good parts. In conclusion, Halo: Reach is a game.

Limited edition. Epic. Some great little goodies in here. Well worth the 20$ extra. Halesly's "sketchbook" is more of a journal, and a hell of a long one. Some fun technical charts and data, little facts. A SPARTAN project patch.


Now I need to sleep to plug this puppy in tomorrow.

My review of the game.


Chronologicallythe first chapter, dynamically the last, Halo: Reach is Bungie's final creation for the Halo universe as an independent contractor for Microsoft. Released today. (Yeah, I already have gone through most of it)

Single player is by far one of the most indepth and interesting experiances I've ever had with a Halo game. For their final game, Bungie eschewed their normal single character for the campaign and instead went with what I can only describe as an RPG esque system. You're able to pick between a male and female character, and design a custom armor set for them, which carries over into the single player campaign.

Now this brings us to the protagonist the (male/female) "Noble six". This is where I truely felt Bungie tried their hardest to pull an RPG feel to the game. You find out very, very little personality or history wise about your character. I felt that this was almost intentional, it let you really assume the character, a shell to coat yourself in for full immersion. By the end of the game, I was very attached to "my" character.

The basic plot of the game starts approximately 2 months before Halo: Combat Evolved's introduction sequence. "Noble team" is a six spartan squat assigned to the UNSC stronghold world of Reach, officially, to suppress insurrectionist activity, unofficially, in case the Covenant invade and everything goes to hell. Unfortunately, the latter proves to be true. Covenant forces invade reach, severing communications with the rest of the UNSC. The game follows Noble Team as they fight to hold off the covenant while waiting for a relief fleet to save the world.

The ending was incredibly emotional, and really, was a wonderful way to end the Halo universe. I cried. I'm not sure if it was because of the ending itself, or that I knew that this was it for the series. Maybe a bit of both.


Anyways, wonderful game, well worth even just renting. (But I suggest you buy )


Servers have been bitching at me, I cant review multiplayer yet. However, based on Forge tests, it looks like it follows classic rules, except for the addition of armor abilities that you can pick up throughout the world. (Oh yeah, JETPACKS)

And so ends my first day with Halo Reach.
I blitzed through the campaign on Heroic with my friend Skxawng (That IS his ToS Username) The campaign was by far the best I've had in a Halo game. It was challenging, but not unfairly so. The story was brilliant and emotional, and the ending had me a bit WTF'd for a few minutes. Seeing as I already read the novella "The Fall of Reach" I knew how it was going to turn out.

I've had a fair run with Multiplayer as well, pushed myself to Warrant Officer, and enjoyed it. There are a few maps I find incredibly frustrating, the Halo 2 remakes. I feel that they are out of place and pretty much ****. The "Forge World" maps to me feel the same thing, and poorly made. The rest of them, top class. Although I could whine about the spawns...

Haven't had a go with the Forge yet, I expect it'll be the same, with some much needed improvements. Bungie's last Halo game, and by God has it gone out with a bang. Some bugs are yet to be worked out, or maybe its the servers screaming under the strain. Sometimes the game would randomly lose my rank and my armor permutations, and I'd have to sit in a matchmaking lobby while it "Loaded data from the Reach server" to play again.

All in all, a feckin' brilliant game. Buy it.

Migg, you could fix it in 10 minutes with a heat gun, some bolts, and decent thermal paste should send it back to Microsoft so they can properly "repair" it. Must... fight... hardware hacking tendencies...
